  1. Homemade noodles and homemade dumpling wrappers and the filling looks so good too! Whyyyyyyy do we not have places like this in SD! The last dish you posted, the noodles with fermented black bean sauce is my dad’s favorite dish in the world. My grandma used to make it for him and when we moved to Canada where there are more Asian grocery markets we spent months buying ever jar of black bean sauce they had until my dad found the ‘right’ one 🙂

      Hi J.S. – It is such a shame we don’t have places like this down here! Homemade noodles and dumplings, we need it here! It sounds like your dad really was on a quest to find the perfect black bean sauce! Glad he finally found it then, haha. It was a tasty dish, especially those chewy noodles, yum.

    Ohh… I would kill for some delicious dumplings and hand made noodles! Why can’t we have these things here in SD? Maybe someone will start a dumpling truck and drive down for us.

      Dumpling truck!! Why doesn’t that exist here! I feel like there’s a truck for everything else haha. I guess we traded good Mexican food for good Chinese. We need both in San Diego.

  3. Those dry noodles look so good….I want to try that. WHAT? T doesn’t like shrimp?

    Haha….”pretend” there’s a photo….. ; )

      Hi CC! The noodles were so good! I really liked them. T has this thing, he’s very anti-seafood if he knows it’s seafood. If it’s snuck in then he doesn’t seem to mind it. Imagine that! I have gotten him to eat plenty of things he thinks he doesn’t otherwise like. I’ve been trying to teach him about letting go of preconceptions, haha. It might be working.
