Delightful noodle dish, light and flavorful. Perfect for lunch or a light dinner. Serves 2 as a single dish or 4 as part of a multi-dish Chinese style meal. Chinese yellow chives are a paler version Chinese green chives that are blocked from the sun while they grow. They are delicate and tender with an earthy taste, and must be cooked immediately after they are picked. Chinese green chives are a good substitute and scallions are acceptable (though they will not have the distinctive garlic taste of Chinese chives); Western chives have a completely different taste and should not be substituted.
