In Woodbridge, Virginia
Chinese restaurants are more popular than many of the largest fast food restaurants. Believe it!
Cantonese, Hunan, Szechuan, and Peking...
Are you "ambitious and adventurous, but irritable"? That describes the Fire Monkey and 2016 is the Year of the Fire Monkey! This year begins on February 8, 2016 and ends on January 27, 2017.
2016 is the Year of the Fire Monkey!
With so many types of regional cuisine, each with its distinctive flavors and ingredients, the menu always offers a dish to please every palate.
Indeed, name one person who does not like Chinese food...
My favorite dishes? Plain Egg Drop Soup, anything in black bean sauce, easy on the curry Singapore Noodles and Low Mein from that dimly lit Chinese restaurant [definitely off the beaten path] within a few hundred yards of the Monkey Temple.
To experience the absolute best tasting low mein, stacked at least 6 inches high on a large, chipped oval platter, you'll have to follow me to Kathmandu.
No, it's not China, but you'll have to admit it is pretty close!
I'm positive the dish contained noodles...the remaining ingredients - a mystery. The taste, however, was stupendous. It cost $1.25 along with a glass of steaming hot chai.
You don't have to travel that far to enjoy cooking the Chinese way. There are quite a few very good restaurants right here in Woodbridge...
Psst...Don't forget to check our Personal Cookbook where we post recipes of favorite Chinese homemade dishes.
