When we order crab noodle, so the cooker will cook the crabs first. The reason is to make the crab well cooked before the noodle added on.
After the crabs have been already well cooked with soup, then he would add the noodle onto the crabs.
He will put the amount of noodles for three of us.
After that, he would give some cut of onion leave and celeries. He poured them onto the noodle inside the crock. Then, he will close the crock to let the noodle and crabs cooked well.
After being cooked for about ten minutes, it looked our crab noodles were almost ready. The aroma was so good and made us drooling. We could hardly waste to taste it immediately.
