When it comes to having your friends over for dinner, things can get a little hectic. From special diets to picky eaters, having a please-all dinner can be nearly impossible. One of my secret go-to dinners for casual get togethers are “Make Your Own” meal bars. For the biggest crowd pleaser I always try to go with Asian food. My children love Asian food and think eating with chopsticks is the best thing ever.
To prepare a Restaurant Inspired Make Your Own Lo-Mein Bar you will need to gather a few essential ingredients such as:
- Asian lo-mein noodles
- Tai Pei Egg Rolls and Spring Rolls
- Soy sauce, chili sauce and Tai Pie dipping sauces
- Fresh vegetables including broccoli, carrots, snow peas, peppers, onions, bok choy, baby corn, mushrooms and water chestnuts
- Protein such as cooked chicken, shrimp or beef (optional, or go vegetarian)
I assemble all of my ingredients in various small bowls and create a Restaurant Inspired Make Your Own Lo-Mein Bar. I then offer assorted bowls and chopsticks on the side for people to prepare their restaurant-inspired lo-mein based on their own taste preferences. My vegetarian friends can eat vegetarian lo-mein while my seafood loving friends can have shrimp lo-mein.
To complete the lo-mein bar, I serve my favorite spring rolls and egg rolls. I usually choose the shrimp egg rolls and vegetable spring rolls, which can be purchased in the frozen foods section (asian aisle) at your local Wal-mart, and some hot green tea.
Tai Pei Asian egg rolls and spring rolls offer an authentic feel to your favorite Restaurant Inspired Make Your Own Lo-Mein Bar. Tai Pei rolls are also great for holiday parties and gatherings and are the perfect appetizer to add to your party – simple and easy. The rolls are prepared in crispy wrappers and include fresh cut veggies and hearty chicken, shrimp or pork. Each package of rolls includes dipping sauce which you can either serve as-is or doctor it up with your favorite spices to make it even more fancy.
For my Restaurant Inspired Make Your Own Lo-Mein Bar I went with a vegetarian lo-mein. For even more inspiration on how to prepare your favorite Asian meals at home, follow Tai Pei foods on Facebook, Pinterest or on Twitter.
Get creative and enjoy Tai Pei Asian Foods!
