Shrimp Chow Fun
Chow Fun is a staple Cantonese dish, made from wet stir-frying “ho fun” (wide rice noodles) in a sauce.  The important factor in making this dish is the “wok hei” (the wok air).  The cooking must be done over a high flame and the stirring must be done quickly.  Not only must the “ho fun” noodles be stirred quickly, it must not be handled too strongly or it will break into pieces.  The amount of oil also needs to be controlled very well, or the extra oil or dry texture will ruin the flavor.  Our dish is served with shrimp, Chinese bok choy, and wet stir-fried with “ho fun” in a light brown sauce.

We have two types of lo mein dishes:  Hong Kong & Arizona versions.  What is the difference?  Hong Kong lo mein is thin egg noodles cooked al dente and served with a little sauce.  Arizona lo mein is flour noodles stir fried in soy sauce.

From the HK menu, Hong Kong Style Lo Mein:  Ginger, Green Onion, & Beef mixed with Egg Noodles - This is a simple and light stir fried dish.  Sliced beef, onion white, ginger, & bean sprouts served on a bed of soft egg noodles.  But do except a strong ginger flavor infused in this dish.  The sliced beef is lightly pan fried and then mixed with green onions, yellow onions, & bean sprouts.  The soft egg noodles are then added into the wok with soy sauce and other spices to draw out the flavors of all the ingredients.

From the AZ menu, AZ Style Lo Mein:  House Special Lo Mein - sliced chicken, beef, shrimp, mixed vegetables, & noodles with light sauce.
