Cantonese Style Fried noodles

Cantonese Style Fried noodles



My son Lucas love this noodles, he always buy this Cantonese style fried noodle from school's canteen. I told my son, if I were to cook for you , the noodles definitey will taste better than the one which is sold in the school , because there will be more ingredients and no MSG added.




Cantonese Style Fried noodles


This time I cook with rice vermicelli (mee hoon) and flat rice noodles (koey Teow), similar like those we can find in tai chow (hawker stall) or Chinese restaurant, they name as "Yin Yong". You can also replaced the noodles with Yee mee (fried egg noodles).

Looks delicious! This is my son's and my favourite noodle too! Yes, when we cook it at home, there's certainly no MSG and so much tastier with all the extra "leow" that goes into it! :)

Uma said...

It looks healthy. No food tastes better than homemade. You have added many things for topping which adds attraction to the recipe. Yummy!!!

Cheers,
Uma

Barefeet In The Kitchen said...

This looks delicious, Sonia. Could I please come visit and stay with you and just learn to cook all of your foods? I'm sure my plane fare would be worth it. :)

Nami | Just One Cookbook said...

What a healthy noodle dish Sonia! I loooove mee hoon. They are the best when they are coated with oil and soup/souce nicely... You got me super hungry. I need to eat some Chinese food for lunch. Definitely something like this!

tigerfish said...

I like "Wat Dan" (silky smooth egg) gravy over bee hoon or rice noodles. So delicious.

AhTee said...

It's sure looks n taste better den the canteen's one! hehe..
Sonia, little sharing, normally I'll thicken the gravy 1st before adding in the egg as to give a shinning surface! ^^

daphne said...

yum! for sure this looks amazing and healthier sonia. My kind of dish at home as well.

Lori said...

I would imagine the homemade were much better! I play around with noodle dishes, but haven't really perfected them. This dish sounds great! It may be my next one to try.

Little Corner of Mine said...

I like to cook this for my family too. Definitely more ingredients if we cook at home.
