  • And then the noodles is my father's favorite because he just He's a noodle person.

  • He's not that much into rice.

  • So that's how it came to be.

  • Poor Peter and Paul David turns the walk up to full blast, adding in the lamb first and flipping it almost continuously.

  • You'll see them doing a combination that any idea is just to keep the meat from sticking to the size, because that means it's first thing David tosses in the rest of the ingredients and a spoonful of the restaurants.

  • Chili oil, which famously flew off the shelves after The New York Times recommended it to readers in May with a proprietary blend of 30 spices.
