炒煮面 'char ju mian' literally means “stir-fried noodle in broth/soup”. It is a very well-know noodle dish in FooChow dominated towns in Sarawak, apart from the infamous 干盘面 'kampua'

How in the first place a stir-fried noodle has so much broth/soup ? 'Char ju mian' is first prepared by stir-fried the noodle, then broth is added, and the whole dish ended-up become a noodle-in-broth/soup...

The noodle-in-broth/soup supposedly taste better after a bit of stir-frying, to incorporate the browning flavour.  Believe it or not ?  Belum cuba belum tahu !
