Char Kuey Teow
Or my version . Sans prawn - a tad expensive these past few days . Or I'm just feeling cheap .
I haven't eaten this dish for quiet sometime . Come to think of it there are lots of food that I haven't seen nor eaten for a while -__-''
I'm planning to make another gon chau ngau ho but I still have one lone Chinese sausage so I decided to make this .
It may look like gon chau ngau ho but the taste is much more like the char kuey teow that I usually ate at Toast Box . By the way , their coffee , free with a set meal , tastes HEAVENLY hee hee
But I haven't been there for a while and been dreaming about it , so I tried making it and the taste is really really good , okay , okay , according to me hahahaha
I did cook this in the stainless steel wok , but as we're using induction stove it's not really the same as when using a gas stove . I did maintain a high heat throughout but some noodles still stick on the pan and unlike when I made gon chau ngau ho last time , where I seldom stir the noodles before adding the sauce, this time I stir it vigorously heh !
If it may look like a tad dry it's because I just use about 2 tablespoon of oil and most of it were absorbed by the eggs . So if you want a more glossy noodles just add more oil .
There should be always a chopstick shot ! And just to let you know , it's really quiet hard holding a chopstick full of food in your right hand while taking photo on your left hand hee hee
