While back in Vancouver, I shopped at my neighbourhood asian grocery store and found that this childhood fave of mine was on promotion: 10 packets for $3! So I promptly picked some up to bring home to NYC. Its hard to find here and I don't often venture to Chinatown. As a result, many of the asian goodies I purchase are Japanese rather than Chinese because there's a small Japanese convenience store within walking distance from my apartment.
Today for lunch, I decided to make an old favourite of mine: Fried Mee Goreng. Although not 100% authentic - my home-cooked, student version serves as a quick, tasty meal before I head off to class. YUM!
