Ee Mee Dry (干捞伊面)

“It’s not stir-fried noodle, it’s noodle dry where you mix the sides and sauce into blanched noodles.”

Making the Ee Mee its dry way is just to prevent the noodle from getting too soggy and greasy. I personally thought the dish taste more subtly, too. It wasn’t overly saltish. Loved it so much.

And of course, for spicy food lover, bring on the sambal chili! Yes, just add it in.

“You are busy, and yet, yearning for delicious & heart warming meal.. here’s something you have to learn up, my simple quick fix rice meal. Not the lazy, but for the smart ones!”

I would say Japanese inventions are brilliant, including their contribution to creating flavorful yet simple food. When we learned to combine the delicious Chinese food with smart Japanese food, what we often get would be delicious smarty food! It’s just a saying, not limited to…. Lol.

Coming back to my golden fried rice, it’s not anything new to cook up this golden fried rice where each grain would be coated with the yellowish yolk to present a plateful of “golden” appearance dish. However, if you ask me, I wouldn’t be bored to add interesting elements to this wonderful goodness, and bring it to a whole new level of tasting. read more
