Chinese Fried Sauce Noodle 炸酱面

Zha Jiang Mian, or fried sauce noodle, is one of my favorite food during school days. It is an inexpensive, simple yet delicious meal, and often time we made extra meat sauce so that  it can be heated up easily and make a convenient quick meal afterwards.

As far as I remember, there was a decent Chinese food stall in my school canteen. The food portion was big, but I never had a problem finishing a big bowl of their zha jiang mian. Despite it sounded like a weird combination, I especially love to add their peanut sauce (which was meant for steamboat) in my noodle, its nutty fragrance goes surprisingly well with the meat sauce!

Whenever I had a longer lunch break, I would travel from a faculty to another just to have a taste of their noodle. However, something happened after I graduated. I didn't get the full story but I heard that they were closed down due to misuse of washing machine with their food! Erm.. washing machine for food?! Guess I better not to find out, at the very least, I could still retain my fond memories of them...

Now fast forward the time, gone are those days that I could finish a big bowl of zha jiang mian. With my current appetite, that big bowl of noodle is enough to feed me a whole day! So I make my own based on my portion, and surely I don't need a washing machine to do that!
