Bamboo Charcoal Noodles

Food today comes in different colours. Some are normal colours and some are absolutely unbelieveable!! We love red in our food - chillies and tomatoes. We don't mind deep purple cabbages. Yellow and green are natural colours of our vegetables.

But when it comes to black food many of us would think twice before picking up the food. I have tried the Spanish black squid dish. Black naturally - but it is an acquired exquisite taste. Not many outside Spain may like it.

What about the Nynonya's black keluak chicken?

Or the Foochow's black chicken soup?

Now there's the black bamboo charcoal bread which has become quite popular. Kuching's black bamboo charcoal noodles are selling are hot stuff nowadays!!

The Japanese were the first people to start producing bamboo charcoal noodles. Today Taiwan is also one of the biggest producers of bamboo charcoal products.
Bamboo charcoal is known to have many health benefits.
I was happy to find some bamboo charcoal noodles in Kuching's Pertanak Market. My mum (being quite adventurous in cooking ) found these noodles tasty.
Prepare the noodles in the kolo method. Add blanched vegetables and fresh mushrooms with some sesame oil and deep fried onions and garlic. Add a bit of Foochow red wine and you have a great bowl of healthy noodles.
These noodles can also be prepared like spaghetti and a nice seafood sauce!! Yummy.

1. Typo => buah keluak :)

2. I wonder whether the charcoal will remove the good bacteria from our system as well.

Thanks for visiting Daniel.

According to the Japanese the charcoal is good for constipation etc. May be have to ask some scientists!

Hi Daniel, there are proven studies that Bamboo Charcoal just absorbs bad bacteria from our system. It is the same if you would use Bamboo charcoal to absorb toxins out of your Body. It absorbs the toxins and but not the nutrients!

I think Bamboo charcoal is fantastic.
I buy the bamboo charcoal rolls here and they are very nice, not nice to look at but they taste nice :-)
We also use Bamboo charcoal in our household to absorb moisture and odours, it works fantastic!

I suppose the charcoal tablets are good for stomach ache, so the noodle must be good once in a while to cleanse the system.

The Nyona black nut chicken, I don't appreciate , thought I know it is a lot of work.

Yes Ann...I used to buy lots of charcoal tablets for my poor gastric problem. Later I found out that severe heart burn may be a sign of heart problem. Many people need to check that out.
