Put the mushrooms in hot water and soak for 15 minutes. Remove the stalks and cut the mushrooms into fine slices. Also cut the bamboo shoots, the onions and lobster into thin slices. Put the noodles in a large saucepan of boiling oil and cook for a few seconds only. Remove at once, drain and put on a hot dish. They should be quite crisp.
Put the lobster in a hot oiled pan and cook for 1 minute. Cook the bamboo shoots, the bean sprouts, the mushrooms and onions in the same manner for 1 minute, and season with a little salt and pepper. Then add to the vegetables a little cornflour water and a few drops of Chinese sauce, and cook for 1 minute. Place the whole over the noodles and serve with Chinese sauce. This dish is sufficient for 6 people, as are all the other recipes which follow.
