Finally, we open ‘Chifa’ category in Monitouille. Peruvian-Chinese fusion, favorite of many. This time I cooked sauteed noodles who fell in love with vegetables. Perfect for a not so caloric meal and for veggie lovers, like me. If you want to add some meat go ahead, just follow all the steps adding the meat at first (just after step 8) and make sure it doesn’t dry! Some wantun goes perfect with it (cortesy of Wong, my fav. market in Lima).
