Mike works near Austin's largest Asian market, where you can get a couple dozen plump shitake mushrooms for about two bucks and bok choy is a dollar a pound. He pops in on his lunch break every so often and leaves with about $12 of vegetables, which can last for days.
This was the second attempt at a stirfry boasting a few basic ingredients - noodles, bok choy, mushrooms and onions. We've got the sauce and veggies mastered, but this time around we didn't have the exact kind of noodle we were looking for. These rice stick noodles were good, but I'm longing for the plump, crystal-clear ones we found at the market near my favorite restaurant, Asia Cafe.
