  1. This looks delicious! I used to work in an authentic Chinese (Hong Kong Style) restaurant for a few years and the chefs would make this quite often for dinner! And so my love affair with eggplants began! Not sure if i'll be able to make it quite as well as them, but this recipes looks just great!!

    Stay fab!

    1. Dried crushed red pepper wouldn't make the dish super spicy...
