I love Chinese food....However, I love Chinese food outside China....I never found a good restaurant in Mainland China, except one seafood restaurant in Hangzhou that was delicious....A Chinese friend me told me that there is no unique chow mein recipe, and is all about creativity...
I love noodles with lots of veggies....and here is my version of chow mein noodles

purple onions, garlic, ginger, green onions
3 eggs beaten
Noodles Cantonese style
For the sauce
1 tablespoon fish sauce

Prepare all the ingredients in terms of size
In a hot wok with oil fry some ginger and garlic, then sautee the mushrooms. Set aside.

I have not visited Mainland China but the food in Hong Kong and Taiwan was excellent. We frequently eat Asian-inspired food at home. Last evening we had a shrimp stir fry - quick, tasty and nutritious.ReplyDelete
I never have been to China, but I do enjoy Chinese cuisine in the US. Chou Mein is one of my favorites. Your recipe looks delicious.ReplyDelete
