Stir-fried Bean Sprout with Salted Egg (Tauge Telor Asin)

I loveeee salted egg, it reminds me of home. Back then, when my mom didn’t cook or had no time to cook, I used to eat salted egg with rice. It’s simple and yummy. But since I lived in Germany, it’s now very common to eat this and can only be found at the Asian…

Mie Goreng Tek-tek (Indonesian fried-noodle, street food style)
