Author Notes

After living in New York City most of my life, and having access to China Town and its wonderful cuisine and groceries , I came up with this version of such a delectable dish. Now that I live in Florida I may not have all the amenities of NYC, but I am still able to make and create the many wonderful dishes of the Far East. —knitnbead
