To the Chinese, eight is a significant and lucky number because the word for eight sounds very much like the word for prosperous. For this reason, celebratory banquets will often officially consist of eight courses (even if a few extras are thrown in for good measure). In Chinese cooking, there is eight treasure duck, eight treasure chicken and eight treasure rice, but as far as 1 know, there have been no eight treasure noodles, until now.
