postheadericon Chap Chae (Korean Noodles)

I just went with some friends to the incredible Chosun Galbee for Korean BBQ and a night of karaoke in LA’s Koreatown a couple of weeks ago and it inspired me to repost this gem.  Before I belted out my signature karaoke songs, Super Star by The Carpenters and White Rabbit by Jefferson Airplane, I [...]

What is the difference between chow mein and lo mein you ask?  The main difference is that lo mein noodles tend to be softer while chow mein noodles can be crispier.  Both types of noodle dishes are usually made with Chinese egg noodles.  For this easy Chicken Lo Mein recipe, I’m using dried spaghetti because [...]

postheadericon Chap Chae (Korean Noodles)

Chap chae or jap chae translates as nooodles mixed with meat and veggies and is one of the most popular noodle dishes in Korea.  I try to get to LA’s Koreatown as often as I can (to get my chap chae fix followed by karaoke) but since we had the twins it’s not as easy [...]
