Yellow Cab’s Charlie Chan Pasta


A lot of people said that this is the best pasta on Yellow Cab’s menu, I can’t agree more as it really is delicious at the same time interesting just imagine a pasta cooked the Asian way, it’s a real fusion. I know Yellow Cab pizza, but I never had tried this, luckily I have two Filipino colleagues in where I work that suggests recipes to make at the same time taste test them so I know whether I got it correct or not based on their description.

The first time I heard this from them I was quite skeptical because how can someone stir fry a spaghetti? But after I tried it I was hooked just think of it as an Asian noodle but a bit Al Dente the only difference with a pasta instead of it being saucy it is more like and Aglio Olio, dry but full of flavour.

Using pasta as an Asian noodle is a brilliant idea and I think this fusion can go a long way, in fact I already had a lot of recipes building in my mind now so watch this space.
