The soft and juicy pieces of meat are placed on top of the cellophane noodles. The stock is clear without any bubble or strange smell and has the natural pleasant taste of mule duck meat. Cellophane noodles or rice vermicelli is blanched until soft but not easily crushed or too dry.

The dipping sauce with a large amount of chopped garlic boasts a combination of sourness and spiciness. An alternative is soy sauce with garlic and chili.
