Fried Saimin an okazuya staple which is a favorite of mine. As a youngster I would often have a small order of fried saimin, served on a paper plate wrapped in butcher paper and that was it, I was happy.

A drier noodle dish than the traditional Chow Mein, there is no sauce really, just the flavorings from the saimin seasoning, soy sauce and oyster sauce.

I prefer the fresh saimin noodles for this recipe, the texture remains chewy, but the frozen type works just as well and may be more readily available.
