Gong Xi Fa Cai — 9 Comments

  1. Hi Marta, Happy Chinese New Year to you and your family too! This recipe and your photos are all so good. I love noodle dishes.
    The ice cream looks good too and I like how you ate them with fruit. Very nice.

    Thanks for sharing.

  2. That looks delicious! I use those noodles to make a *insert your protein of choice* and and broccoli with black bean sauce over stir-fried noodles. Always a big hit with the boys.

    Marta’s Reply – Oooh… that sounds great also.

  3. I am very impressed with your culinary skills. Both look absolutely yummy!

    Do you know the reason behind the different Happy New Year sayings – Kung Hee Fat Choy (which is most popular here in Hawaii), Gong Xi Fa Cai, and Gung Hei Fat Cho? Is it different dialects, a more Americanized version, Taiwan vs Hong Kong vs China?

  4. Marta everything looks so amazing and the color of the ice cream such a beautiful shade. We had chinese food too but I just got take out. Yours looks so much better. See you this weekend.

  5. Girasoli – I know the difference between Gong Xi Fa Cai, and Gung Hey Fat Choy is Mandarin versus Cantonese Chinese. Most of my friends growing up in CA were Cantonese so I’ve always said “Gung Hey Fat Choy”. I’ve only recently found the Mandarin.I’ve never heard Kung Hee Fat Choy. It must be specific to Hawaii.

    Thanks everyone for the comments. I’m going to try to blog about Azuki when I get back from Paso.

  6. Marta,
    This looks great! As always, your photos are wonderful. I think I’ll stop by 99 Ranch tonight and look for those noodles. Thanks!
