I have been fighting a cold for almost a month. I am not completely well yet but I am well enough to make a pot of Mì Hoành Thánh Vịt Quay to make up for all those weeks that my family had to live off Mama instant noodles, Annie Chun instant udon bowls and lots of fried eggs.
Mì Hoành Thánh is a delicious, nutritious, easy-to-make meal. It’s one of the best hot steaming bowl of soup to have for breakfast or a light meal during the day. The light and yet tasty stock can be made of either chicken broth or pork broth with white daikon, carrots and vegetable seasoning.
The filling in the wonton is the combination of ground pork, chunks of shirmp, crunchy water chestnuts, fresh ginger, the white part of green onion and my favorite, the wonderful aroma of sesame oil.
You may freeze the premade wonton for a few weeks. Whenever, you crave for it but have little time to cook, just use canned chicken broth and dilute it with some water, then you will have a bowl of Mì Hoành Thánh in no time. Now that’s what I call instant . . . gratification.
I always like to enhance a bowl of Mì Hoành Thánh
with a few pieces of roasted duck on top, a couple of boiled baby bok choy and sprinkled it with some fried garlic and a pinch of fresh ground pepper. The roasted duck actually adds quite a distinct flavor and I think it enhances the taste of Mì Hoành Thánh.

1 pack Wonton Wrappers
1 Egg White, for wonton wrappers
1 Roasted Duck, chopped into small pieces
2 bags Egg Noodles
Sesame Oil, for noodles
Fried Garlic, for garnish
Green Onion, finely chopped, for garnish
1 bag of baby bok choy, washed
1 lb Pork Neck bones or 2 cans of Chicken Broth
1 large chunk of fresh Ginger about 1 inch chunk, cut into a couple slices
1 White Radish, cut into 2-inch pieces
1 large Carrot, cut into round slices
A small chunk of Rock Sugar or regular Sugar
4-5 tablespoons Mushroom Seasoning
Make about 80 wontons
1 lb of small Shrimp without shell, cut into about half inch chunks
1/2 can of Chestnuts, about 20 chestnuts, diced small
1 small chunk Fresh Ginger, finely chopped, make about a tablespoon
4-6 White Parts of Green Onion, finely chopped
1/2-1 teaspoon Ground Pepper
If use pork neck bones, rinse and clean the pork bones with salt. Bring it to boil then rinse and clean it again.
Add ginger, carrot, white daikon and ginger to the stock pot and bring it to boil again. Add salt, rock sugar about the size of a tablespoon, and mushroom seasoning. Let simmer for an hour. Season the broth with fish sauce. Adjust the ingredients if needed. Discard the white radish. Keep the carrots if you prefer.
Combine all the wonton filling ingredients. Let it sit in a fridge for about half an hour. The mixture will stiffen as it sits and this will make it easy to work with.
Apply egg white around the edges of the wonton wrapper with your finger. The egg helps the edges to adhere to one another. Fill a wonton wrapper with about a teaspoon of mixture then press the corners together.
Bring a pot of water and a tablespoon of sesame oil to boil. Add wontons to the boiling water. Wonton are ready when they float. Remove wontons from the pot and set them aside. Continue boiling the remaining wontons.
The skin of boiled wonton has a soft texture.
Another method to cook wontons is steaming them in a single layer in each steamer tray for about 10 minutes on med-high. The skin of steamed wonton is firmer and not as soft as the boiled wontons. I tried both methods and like them both.
The skin of steamed wonton has a firmer texture and darker in color.
Preparing Baby Bok Choy
Bring a small pot of water and a pinch of salt to boil. Add Bok Choy in boiling water for a about a couple minutes. Remove Bok Choy from water. Set it aside.
Chop 1 whole garic finely. Add oil in a pan and bring it to medium heat. Once the oil is hot, add garlic and stir it until it starts turning color. Remove from heat and keep stirring it until it’s golden. Don’t wait until the garlic turns golden then remove from heat. The oil is still very hot and it will burn the garlic very quickly.
Cooking Egg Noodle
Bring a pot of water to boil. Add egg noodles in the boiling water for about a couple minutes. Drain it. Add a tablespoon of sesame oil in the noodle and toss it up well.
