Ya, back to dish that I going to post here, i saw this dish in a TV food show, a Vietnamese way of stir fry chayote. We like this dish, the chayote tasted sweet and crunchy, simply delicious.
This is chayote. And the chayote's shoot also nice to just stir fry with anchovies, see my ealier post here. You can get both chayote and chayote shoot from Jusco store.
This is Szechuan pepercorn, replaced with black peppercorn if you can't find this.
