LYL – Nyonya-Style Singapore Noodles

It’s another Wok Wednesday, and an extra special one at that because we’ve surpassed 800 members! Cue the band! Clang the woks! When I embarked on this journey over two years ago I never could have imagined it would become what it is today – I was just hoping to find others who enjoyed stir-frying as much as I did. Thank you to all who participate!

This recipe is a version of one of my favorite dishes – Singapore Noodles. The version inĀ Stir-Frying to the Sky’s Edge comes from Mei IBach, a Chinese Malaysian born in Malaysia and raised in Singapore. When the Chinese came to Malaysia and Singapore they created a fusion cuisine that came to be known as Nyonya – thus, Nyonya-Style Singapore Noodles. You’ll see the combination of Chinese and Southeast Asian ingredients in this recipe, which calls for both kecap manis (a Southeast Asian style dark soy sauce) as well as traditional soy sauce.

LYL – Chinese Vietnamese Lemongrass Chicken

This week’s recipe stars one of my all-time favorite Asian ingredients – lemongrass. With its slight lemon flavor and floral aroma, lemongrass is widely used across southeast Asia. This recipe combines classical Vietnamese ingredients with time-honored Chinese techniques for one delicious dish!
