This recipe is dedicated to my Gozitan friends, especially Myriam and Adrian who keep asking me to make something Chinese.  Now you can make this yourself 😉
 
Yeung Chau Chow Fan (Cantonese fried rice) is a big staple on Chinese cafe menus throughout Hong Kong. I’m pretty sure it’s because restaurant owners wanted to get rid of any leftovers, but that doesn’t mean it’s not delicious. Read more
