Hi and thanks for taking the time doing a great job with the videos and recipes, my wife and I enjoy every recipe I’ve cooked so far from your videos. We are food snobs and I hate it cause I can always make a better dish at home than going out *sigh*.
I do have a request though and it’s a long shot. many many years ago when I was 16 I worked in a higher end Chinese kitchen and was introduced to my favorite Chinese meal of all time, which was labeled as Special Chow Mien. It had 2 types of mushrooms, (shiitake and button), squid, shrimp, bbq pork, vegetables over a bed of fried noodles (just the outside fried in the wok on both sides, center was soft). It was the most amazing Chinese dish I have had.
I’ve lived in 9 cities in the last 15 years and have literally eaten in every Chinese restaurant in each city (big and small) trying to find that dish and no one has come close. I believe it’s a Cantonese Lo Mien dish of some sort and most restaurants have a similar dish usually labeled as House Chow Mien.
Do you have a recipe that resembles this at all? I would love to hear from you if you do, thanks again, really like everything about the site and the videos, very “sexy”.
