Sweet Economical Noodles 经济炒面


This is a dish i have been craving for the longest time but i hate the ones sold outside as the noodles are soggy and have a really strong smell. Now that i can make my own noodles, we get to enjoy the freshest noodles that has the best texture ever! This is a easy and quick dish to prepare, and you are meant to pair it with your favourite sides. In local food places, this is a very popular breakfast item and they are sold with plenty of sides where you can mix and match your favourite combinations.

We truly love this dish and were still craving for more after we finished. The slightly sweet and salty flavour paired with al dente QQ noodles with the perfect bite, it was a satisfying brekkie! We are gonna have this so much more often!
