When I was young, I always ate the same thing when my parents took us out for Chinese food.
The restaurant in Amsterdam was called Lotus, and I remember the smells and the “busy-ness” very vividly.
I always ate the same thing which they called “mi-hoen”.
Rice vermicelli stir fried with veggies, lots of onion, egg and some type of protein. Usually shrimp or chicken.
I made some the other day with salmon.
It is a wonderfully easy dish to make. In boiling water cook your rice vermicelli for 2-3 minutes.
Stop the cooking process and rinse with cold water. It keeps well in the fridge for impromptu dishes.
Stir fry your veggies…anything you like. Some protein, and 1 or 2 eggs.
A bit of soy sauce and voila. Play with it. Make it your own…just the way you like it. 🙂
