"Kam Pua" noodle (干盘面) (kampua) - noodles tossed in pork lard or vegetable oil, fried shallots, spring onions and sometimes soy sauce and/or chili sauce. It is available at almost all coffee shops and food stalls.
You can tell from the colour of kampua what it is actually added. Original kampua is always white like the picture above, black kampua is added with soy sauce(you can request to add chili sauce) and red kampua is added with chili sauce. I prefer the original one, simple and so nice.
There are 3 types of noodles, made with the same ingredient but texture different. The 1st picture show the flat noodles, the 2nd picture is the curly version and the original, the 3rd picture is the round straight version. I personally prefer the curly noodles over the other 2.
Kampua can be served in soup too. By default if you order kampua, it always come with dry version. If you are tired about the dry one, try the soup one, it tasted good.
