came here earlier in January & took some shots with my phone (not so clear pictures).. our first impression was.. "it (the noodle) was a big bowl!!"

..the soup base is good..

喜歡煮雞翼, 因為簡單方便.. 所以不斷找尋不同的煮法.. 今次嘗試用香茅, 效果不錯! 下次還可以用香茅來煮豬扒或其他肉類!

材料: 雞中翼 20隻、急凍香茅碎 1 湯匙、李錦記香茅醬 50g、鹽適量、胡椒碎粒適量

1. 先將雞中翼洗淨抹乾,加入鹽及胡椒碎粒攪勻,略醃。
2. 再加入李錦記香茅醬攪勻,將其放入保鮮袋封好,放入雪櫃醃一晚,備用。
3. 將鑊用猛火燒紅,加油後轉用中小火,慢慢逐隻雞翼放入,不時要將雞翼兩面反下, 煎至兩面都變金黃色,及確保兩面都熟透(呢個步驟要俾啲耐性,唔好心急,唔好貪快用猛火煎,用太猛火會令雞翼變焦但內裡雞肉仍然生嘅情況出現)。
4. 當香茅雞翼完全熟透後,熄火,將香茅雞翼逐一排好於碟上,完成。
