Wednesday work food: fratenal noodle twins
My lunch yesterday (Wednesday): Mee Goreng (AU$8.95) at Han’s. Yes, Han’s again! I really wanted to finish the book I was reading, and Han’s is a good place to eat something-not-too-expensive and sit and read at the same time. I still want to try the rice and pork chop dish, but on Wednesday I felt like having noodles. As I ate this, I realised that the Mee Goreng and Han’s Stir Fried Noodle* have exactly the same flavour – I had stumbled upon Han’s Stir Fried Noodle’s fraternal twin. They taste pretty much the same, except for little differences – the Mee Goreng has chicken and tomatoes in it, and Han’s Stir Fried Noodle has BBQ pork. Both dishes are saucy – and it’s that sauce that tastes the same – they must use the same flavour base in both dishes. While my lunch was tasty, I was kind of annoyed by the flavour deja vu. I suppose in future I’ll order this one if I feel like chicken and tomato in a saucy stir fry, and I’ll order the other if I feel like BBQ pork in the same saucy stir fry. Which one is the evil twin though?** Hah!
Forgetting the twin noodle thing, this is yummy. There’s chicken and tomato, as already mentioned, and fish cake, squid (extremely tender!), prawns and bean sprouts.
And now I must say “good night”! I met up with one of my sisters and her best mate M today for lunch and took photos of our food (of course!), but I’ve run out of time tonight… will try to post tomorrow.
*Not a grammatical error. Han’s does refer to the dish in question as “Noodle”, rather than “Noodles”.
** I always thought it would be cool to have a twin. I’d so be the good twin. In fact, I’d be the nerdy goody two shoes twin. My cool and evil twin’s mates would say to her, “It’s so weird how you two are sooo different”. Hahahaha.
