I have been majorly craving Asian food this week. As in, I want it for every single meal. I'm not even joking.
We went to Kim's Vietnamese restaurant in Encinitas to get my fix. I love Kim's. They advertise on a sign outside their restaurant that they have over 50 vegetarian items on their menu. And it's true! Every time I go there, I get to try something different and every time it's equally amazing and exactly what I want! This time I got vegetable chop suey with mock chicken. Delish. Thank you Kim's!
Kim's was EXACTLY what I wanted, but still didn't satisfy my craving. I was just going to have to make my own versions of Asian food at home!
First up was a favorite dish I've made before from Chloe's Kitchen. It's called Chinese Takeout Chow Mein, and it is REALLY good. I don't know why I've waited this long to make it again. I didn't take a picture because I was too anxious to start scarfing it down, but here's a picture of the first time I made it. It looked a little different, but it's pretty much the same.
For lunch the next day I ate an entire bag of Trader Joe's Kimchi Fried Rice. Love this stuff so much. I also ate a carton of seaweed snack strips from Trader Joes.
That next day for dinner I made stir-fried snow peas and bok choy, with tofu and another bag of Kimchi fried rice. I marinated everything in mushroom sauce and Annie Chun's Korean Sweet and Spicy sauce.
I can't get enough! As I write this, my mouth is still watering for more Asian food. Guess what will be on the menu for tonight?
