Cooking a Chinese dish!!

After a very exciting shopping tour to get the ingredients, we met at Loys place to cook the Chinese dish. When we arrived, Loy had prepared a lot of stuff already and we could start with the cooking right away (or he started cooking, we took care of the wine 😉 ). It was interesting to watch him cooking because he did many things different than I would do. I don’t remember the name of the dish, but it was something Loy usually cooks at home for dinner with his family. There was noodle soup with meat 米粉汤( mi  fen tang ), egg-plant filled with minced meat 酿豆腐 (Yong Tau foo), choy sum vegetables 炒菜心(chao cai xin) and a chili-soy-sauce for dipping. It was delicious!

Of course we also talked about differences in table manners. One example: in Chinese culture it is allowed to drink the soup from the plate / bowl, since they usually don’t use spoons, here it wouldn’t be polite.
