Yaka-mein, or “Old Sober,” is a Cajun-Chinese hybrid noodle soup made with spaghetti, beef, broth, hard-boiled eggs, green onions and hot sauce. It’s also the traditional hangover helper of New Orleans (a city that knows a thing or two about hangovers). If you haven’t heard of it before, that’s no surprise: It’s essentially confined to Louisiana and even then, not sold everywhere. You might see it on the menu at a few Chinese restaurants, but you have a better chance of scoring a Styrofoam cupful from a pickup truck during a parade or in the back of a bar late at night. Recently, though, the dish got national attention when Miss Linda Green (a.k.a. the “Yaka-Mein Lady”), who sells her signature yaka-mein at different pop-up locations across New Orleans, appeared on Chopped.
