Bring 4 quarts of water to a boil in a pot with the oil and salt. Add the noodles and cook until tender, about 5 minutes (longer for thicker noodles). Drain
and rinse with cold water. Set aside.
For the sauce: Saute the onions and garlic in the oil in a pot. Stir in the annatto
powder, and then add the ground pork, fish sauce
, chicken powder, salt and black pepper. Mix in the tofu
and cook for 20 minutes.
Mix together the breadcrumbs
and palabok in a separate bowl. Whisk
the cornstarch together with 6 cups of water, and then stir into the breadcrumb mixture. Pour into the pot, stir, and continue cooking until the sauce is sticky. Add the eggs, and then remove from the heat.
For serving: Pour the fish sauce, garlic oil and chicken powder into the cooked noodles
and mix. Stir in the chicharrones and 1/4 cup of the fried garlic
and mix again, making sure all the noodles are coated. Pour 4 cups of the palabok sauce into the noodles and stir to combine.
Arrange the noodles on 6 plates, and divide the remaining palabok sauce equally among the tops. Sprinkle each with a small amount of fried garlic and chicharrones. Garnish
with the green onions, shrimp, sliced eggs and lemon
wedges. Serve while hot and enjoy!
