So, I recently tried a typical Chinese dish called Beef Chow Fun or Beef Chow mein. There is a difference between the two noodles for those that don't know. Chow fun is the wide rice noodles and chow mein is the thin egg noodles.
I tried the chow fun version the other night and it was "ok". To be honest, the noodles I bought from my local grocery store ran out of the chow fun noodles I normally get. So in the picture, once you click on the link, you will see that the noodles are not really "chow fun". The picture shows a different type of noodle that I alternatively bought and it had "chow fun" as the label. I suppose next time I will try the chow mein version just as comparison. The type of noodles used for this dish does make a difference so I suppose wait for an updated post folks :)
Has anyone tried both styles before? Opinions? Suggestions?
So, I am trying to cook something tonight that involves garlic and noodles. Any recommendations on some good recipes that have these two ingredients?
So, I am a big fan of both pho and ramen. What would you choose as your sort of "go-to" bowl? In my area, pho and ramen joints are abundant so as crazy as it might seem, I try to balance out between the two on a weekly basis lol
Anyways, I just thought I'd get your thoughts/perspectives on it. Some people I talk to would say, "Well, hey these are two different types of noodle bowls so it's an unfair comparison and you can't really choose one over the other (or can you?)". However, being a crazed-noodle fan, it's sometimes hard to pick one over the other.
So, pho or ramen? Oh and NO LINK this time as per request from shonyjoe LOL! Just kidding! I'd love to hear your thoughts :)
So, I went to Costco recently and bought the Nong Shim Udon instant noodles. As you all may or may not know, there has been a recall back in October 2012 in Korea due to carcinogens being found in this brand. I suppose my question is, would you eat these type of noodles that were once recalled or any food for that matter in a similar circumstance? I actually created a blog post on it:
Let me know your thoughts :)
