For the roasted duck:

  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper

For the broth:

  • 8 cups chicken or duck broth
  • 2 slices ginger
  • 2 cloves garlic, crushed
  • 2 star anise
  • 1 cinnamon stick
  • 2 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 1 tablespoon hoisin sauce
  • Salt and pepper to taste

For assembling the soup:

  • 8 ounces dried egg noodles or rice noodles
  • Bok choy or baby bok choy, blanched
  • 2 green onions, chopped
  • Fresh cilantro leaves
  • Soy sauce and hoisin sauce for serving
  • Optional toppings: sliced chili peppers, bean sprouts, lime wedges


1. Prepare the Roasted Duck:

  • Preheat your oven according to the roasted duck’s instructions if using store-bought.
  • If using homemade roasted duck, rub the duck slices with five-spice powder, salt, and black pepper. Heat a skillet over medium heat and lightly sear the duck slices until they’re heated through and the skin is crispy. Set aside.

2. Prepare the Broth:

  • In a large pot, combine the chicken or duck broth, ginger, garlic, star anise, and cinnamon stick. Bring the mixture to a gentle simmer over medium heat.
  • Add soy sauce and hoisin sauce to the broth. Allow the flavors to meld for about 15-20 minutes. Season with salt and pepper to taste.

3. Cook the Noodles:

  • In a separate pot, cook the dried egg noodles or rice noodles according to the package instructions. Drain and set aside.

4. Assemble the Soup:

  • Place a portion of cooked noodles in each serving bowl.
  • Arrange the blanched bok choy and a few slices of roasted duck on top of the noodles.

5. Ladle the Broth:

  • Strain the prepared broth to remove the ginger, garlic, star anise, and cinnamon stick.
  • Gently ladle the hot broth into each bowl, covering the noodles, duck, and vegetables.

6. Garnish and Serve:

  • Sprinkle chopped green onions and fresh cilantro leaves over the soup.
  • Serve the soup with additional condiments on the side, such as soy sauce and hoisin sauce, allowing each diner to customize the flavor to their liking.
  • For extra heat and freshness, provide optional toppings like sliced chili peppers, bean sprouts, and lime wedges.

7. Enjoy:

  • Serve the roasted duck noodle soup immediately while it’s still hot. The combination of tender duck, flavorful broth, and aromatic spices creates a truly satisfying and comforting dish.
