Fuzhou delights: Wine Chicken Mee Sua 福州红酒面线
A traditional delicacy that all of us Fuzhou dialect folks come to appreciate when we grow older. It might not taste good in non-Fuzhou people's tongues though.
The fine noodle, or more commonly known as "MeeSua" in Malaysia and Singapore, or simply 面线, of this is different from those that you can find in your local supermarket. The texture, the different thickness of the noodles, all are giving you a hint that this noodle is pure handicraft, made by hands and not machine! I don't like the commercially available meesua but I love the handmade one from my dad's hometown, Sitiawan. 800 years of history, originated from China.
Every chinese new year, this delicacy will be prepared, especially on the First day. All of us, love it!
