Chiu-chow (or "teochew" or any of dozens of other transliterations) is a cuisine from NE Guangdong province. Two dishes I'm particularly interested in, but have had trouble finding in the Toronto area:
1. A fried noodle cake that's basically cooked noodles, formed into a circle and fried. Served with vinegar and sugar. What kind of noodle is that? Every time I have it in Hong Kong I swear I'm tasting yam or sweet potato in the noodles.
2. Chinjew chicken. No idea where the name comes from, but it's basically chunks of chicken cooked in a sauce and served with deep-fried leafy greens of some sort. Does anyone know what that green leafy vegetable is?
More importantly, I suppose, does anyone know a restaurant in the GTA where I could get authentic versions of those dishes?
