Loved a good chow mien anytime and has been cooking this numerous times and has not gotten tired of it still. Am essentially those that can eat the same food over and over again if it’s nice and good, especially homecooked ones ! So this time, did a slight variation of the Supreme Soy Sauce Fried Noodles by adding some shrimps to it instead of the usual meaty affairs and it was as good as it can be too !
And sharing this awesome and fuss free recipe here which is really quite fool proof, trial and tasted several times with many people and so far the feedback has been pretty encouraging which is almost liked restaurant standard too but without all the MSG ! Hope you will like this recipe too !
