Soft-boil the eggs by cooking them for 7 minutes in a small pot of gently boiling water. Remove from heat and run under cold water until cooled. Gently crack and peel. Quarter each bok choy lengthways and finely slice the spring onion.
Bring a fry pan to medium to high heat with a drizzle of olive oil. Add the pork mince and cook for 3 – 4 minutes to brown, breaking up lumps as it cooks. Add the chilli paste, salt and pepper and combine. Cook for a further 2 minutes. Remove from heat.
Bring 1 litre of water to boil. Add the tantanmen and konbu tsuyu sauce. Simmer for 4 - 5 minutes. Add bok choy, cover and remove from heat.
Fill kettle with water and boil. Put noodles in a bowl and cover with water for 3 minutes (or until al dente) then drain.
Cut peeled eggs in half. Place a portion of noodles and bok choy in each bowl. Ladle over the broth. Top with pork mince, eggs and spring onion.
