Garlic Chili Noodles

 We couldn't have holidays this summer; therefore, we went to the Asian grocery store, I bought a wok, and we made at home all the delicious meals we have tasted in our travels. The wok was, it looks like an old wok from a Chinese was a great investment!

We tried this noodles in Taiwan, and I have to admit that Taiwan for me is the best combination of food, culture and heritage....Also, the people from Taiwan is so friendly, and their night markets are really safe.

These noodles are very similar to the ones we tried. The original recipe only has tofu, but we wanted to make them more complete; thus, we added shrimps and scramble eggs.
