Tim told me about a Chinese restaurant called Charlie Mom. Is that racist? Well we wanted to check it out. I was curious about the Chinese Spaghetti. Could it be like the spaghetti my dad used to make for me at his Chinese restaurant? –which was lo-mein noodles and sauce made from tomatoes, ketchup, salt, sugar, starch & msg with beef flank slices. It wasn’t amazing spaghetti, but pretty inventive for what you can do in a Chinese kitchen. I’m longing for this taste. Or could it be the type of spaghetti that I’ve had in Hong Kong & China when I was young? –noodles with ground beef sauce with peas and a raw egg on top. The Charlie Mom version was sort of a combination of both –lo-mein noodles and ground beef sauce a little on the sweet side.
Tim got the Diced Chicken with Hot Pepper Sauce (kung pao chicken). It was loaded chili peppers. Mama Mia!
