Fried Kuay Teow with Beef Bento (86) 乾炒牛河

Didn't prepare bento for almost 2 weeks (was having term break), I was quite looking forward to it. Planed out what to cook last nite (only with my mind, no action at all), the fried kuay teow, and the oven baked quail eggs.

Started preparing the ingredients for fried kuay teow after waking up this morning. Sliced the beef thinly, marinated it then put into fridge, wash and tear cabbage, broke 2 quail eggs into the heart shaped mold and let it bake at oven toasters. Took me about 1/2 hour for the preparing works. As for the cooking & packing, I took another 1/2 hour, so slow hor!

In the top box: Skinned & seeded lychees and yellow grape tomatoes.

In the bottom box: Fried beef, baked quail eggs (with sesame seaweed), and fried cabbage on a bed of fried kuay teow.

Little girl enjoyed the fried kuay teow very much, but don know what was wrong with the lychees, she ate 1 only (I ate them later, they were sweet with a slight tartness, it must be the reason).

I haven't cook eggs this way. Worth a try. The lychees nowadays aren't as sweet as before. Have tried both China and Thailand ones, but like you said a little tart. Probably plucked too early to sell.

Morning, 3lilangels! I don have to watch the eggs while cooking them mah, able to prepare other stuffs at the same time, ;p
