Hokkien Mee 福建面

I cooked this for my mum last weekend..!
And she commented something like,
some people like it drier and some with more gravy.
I guess I love dry ones with a bit of gravy  =)
I always go easy with all seasonings, 
so if you wanna try this recipe,
taste it first, if it's not salty enough, just add more soy sauce.

My choice of flat hokkien noodle is Sakura!
After comparing other brands with this, 
it's really much lower in sodium.
I had doubts before cooking it, 
but after trying, there's not much of a difference!

Try cooking it! It's a very simple recipe!
