What do you know about Chow Mein?

Well, as we all know, Chow Mein is a stir-fried noodle with vegetables and meats, originated from Guangdong, China. The important ingredients for a good plate of chow mein lie in the soy sauce. It is the soy sauce that gives them a pleasant aroma as well as a distinctive flavor.

I really like this tri-shred or simply tri-julienne noodle back then when I was working at Guangzhou. Handmade noodles give really good texture and a combination of vinegar make this stir fry noodle absolutely delicious! Stir fry noodle is a very common dish in China, and now it is well known all over the world. This recipe here is what I have had in China, try it out and let me know if you like this too!
