Let’s walk on the streets of Kuala Lumpur and eat some noodles! In this edition of exploring the street foods of Malaysia, Linda will focus on Cantonese-style noodles, which are enveloped in a silky eggy sauce, distinguishing them from the Hokkien-style noodles, which are generally dry with a kiss of dark soy. Through exploring a few types of Cantonese-style noodles in this class, you’ll learn key stir fry skills: tenderizing and velveting beef, tenderizing and braising pork, and capturing the elusive wok hay, or “energy of the wok.” 

These are flavorful dishes you’ll crave for late night meals. We can’t wait to slurp up noodles with you!
