Longevity noodles

Symbolizes longevity, prosperity, and good luck! We take this symbolic Lunar New Year dish and fuse the two cultures of China and Korea to bring everyone together as one; like what Lunar New Year does for Asian families around the world. 



  • 8oz/225g Cantonese style chow mein noodles, for frying
  • 2oz stir-fry beef, sliced thinly into 2.5 inch strips
  • 1 large (1/4 cup worth) dried shiitake mushroom, soaked in water to rehydrate and cut into thin strips
  • 2 garlic cloves, finely minced
  • 2 oz (1.5 cups) spinach, washed and drained
  • 2 green onions, cut crosswise into 2 inch long pieces
  • 1/2 cup onion, thinly sliced
  • 1/3 cup carrot, thinly sliced
  • 1/3 cup red bell pepper, thinly sliced into strips
  • 1/4 cup kimchi, cut into 2 inch long slices
  • Canola or vegetable oil, for cooking
  • 1 tablespoon soy sauce
  • 1 teaspoon dark soy sauce
  • 2 teaspoons sesame oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon white pepper
  • Toasted sesame seeds, for garnish


  1. In a large nonstick pan over medium-high heat, add two tablespoons of oil along with the garlic. Sauce for 15 seconds and then add the beef and cook stirring constantly. Cook for another 30 seconds. 
  2. Add the mushrooms, onion, and carrot, and saute for one minute until the vegetables have softened. 
  3. Add the Chow Mein noodles (making sure to loosen them up so they are not in a tight bundle). Mix the noodles with the ingredients until thoroughly combined. 
  4. Add the sauce to the pan along with the kimchi and bell peppers. Stir and combine the ingredients until mixed through. 
  5. If the pan looks dry, add one to two tablespoons of water. Sauté the noodles for one to two minutes.
  6. Plate the noodles and garnish with toasted sesame seeds and enjoy!
