My Fried Saimin


I made this fried saimin using Hamura Saimin noodles that my friend The-Other-Leslie brought back from Kauai.

I boiled the saimin, ran it under water and set it aside.

I stir fried some eggs, lup cheong, string beans, green onion, and celery in a bit of oil, oyster sauce, shoyu and couple packs of powdered dashi. I also added about two spoonfuls of rayu chili oil.

Then I threw in the saimin noodles. It was not bad considering that I (the non-cook) made it.

Me too, Mmiissee!

Awww, thanks Lorna.

LOL, Izsmom . . . I had to make it one more time after.

I just love carbs, V.

Aunty, I like Zippy's one too.

Ooooh, Chet . . . you were actually talking about Nijiya! They have a brown rice inari sushi that I like.

No competition, Les. The taste was just awright.

Thanks Mich and Kat!

N, the saimin is good, but it's the noodles that are special. I think they're made old school way. When you boil it, the water gets really thick and starchy. I had to rinse the noodles really well.

Kay, I feel like eating more right now!

N, the pastry were from Honu Bakery. Do you remember Ethel's Delicatessen? Hot dog sushi? It's on that spot now. I was just telling Leslie that I miss Ethel's. And thanks for the Mamon!!!! Unreal ono!
