Chinese Street Food – Fried Noodles With Egg Fried Rice
Did you know Chinese food has many styles? Fried foods are a big part of Chinese cuisine. Fried noodles are one of the most popular Chinese styles of food. Chinese takeout food is a close relative of Asian takeout food, but in the Orient the food is called “kaikai” and it means “eat away”. The word itself means, “eat, prepare, and serve”.
Chinese takeout is not what you would normally think
Most people in America get their “Chinese food” from a drive-through window. They pick up the food, pay and head home. As a result of their unique style of Chinese food, Chinese takeout food is often prepared quickly and the spices used are different than those in most American restaurants. For instance, garlic is rarely seen in a Chinese restaurant in the U.S. Most people order egg fried rice, which is prepared by boiling white rice and adding oil to make it more sesame flavored.
Most Americans who like Chinese food don’t realize that egg fried rice is actually a dish in China. In ancient times, when Chinese food was scarce, food was prepared by boiling vegetables and meats and steaming it. When these foods were exposed to high temperatures they were often scalded, but they were still nutritious. The same method of preparation is used today in Chinese restaurants. The ingredients are heated until they are pale and translucent.
Chinese food is a mystery to many non-Chinese people in America because of its unusual flavors. Unlike most American foods, Chinese food is very mild and sweet, almost like a pudding. The use of spices is limited, but the food is always prepared with fresh vegetables and meats. One of the most popular Chinese staples is tofu, which is fried and served along with chicken and egg fried rice. Unlike in the United States, where tofu is available at every supermarket, in China it is usually found in Chinese restaurants as a stir-fry.
Unlike pork and beef, egg fried rice is not a traditional food in China. Chinese people used to bring eggs to a boil and add sugar and spices to it to make it more yummy. This was then referred to as “yu cha” or “leftovers”. Today this dish is still available in Chinese restaurants, but is rarely ordered out.
Chinese people also use chili peppers as an added spice in many dishes. From the north, you can find fiery chili peppers that are often added to egg fried rice. Hot and spicy foods in general is always well received by most people. Not to mention that egg fried rice is a favorite for Chinese New Years.
In southern China, the people celebrate Lai Lin, which is also known as Spring Festival
This festival is characterized by lots of celebrations and sports including the eating of egg fried noodles. There are different ways to prepare the food, but all of them are very delicious. In the north, there is the special Chinese vegetable Spring Rolls which are very thin and round in shape, much like a pizza. A variety of meats are also used in preparing these noodles, but unlike in most countries, beef is not normally used.
Chinese food is famous for its unique flavor and recipes. Chinese people will go to great lengths to be different and prepare dishes that are not available elsewhere. Chinese cuisine is the most popular international cuisine in the world. Chinese restaurants all over the world serve egg fried rice.
Egg Fried Rice is one of the most famous foods from Chinese cuisine
In many Chinese homes, this is the first dish that they serve when the family gets together after evening. In the United States, this dish is not really popular because there is no real Chinese influence in the foods of the United States. However, as Chinese immigration increases so does the popularity of this simple food.
In the Chinese culture, egg fried noodles are always prepared by a man called chi minding. This is usually his mother, although sometimes it is his wife who does it. The first time that I had my food, I was amazed at how Chinese it was. The aroma coming from the food was very strong, almost too strong to eat. The flavor was out of this world, and the fragrance made me want more. After the first time, I was hooked!
If you want to try Chinese food at its best, then eat egg fried rice. The only word of advice I can give you is: Prepare it hot. Chinese food is mainly made out of hot oil. It is very difficult to get the flavors in at low temperatures, and it usually ends up tasting bad. Chinese people do not realize that frying foods at low temperatures destroys the nutrients, but I assure you, once you try Chinese food, you will never go back to eating American food again.
