Tin Drum Asian Kitchen is a welcome addition to the ethnically diverse mix of cuisine now offered on Church Street in Decatur. I’ve tried many of the selections there and have enjoyed them all. The ingredients are fresh and seasoned just right. I especially enjoyed the Singapore Curry Chow Mein. The description of the dish given on the menu lists familiar, easy-to-find ingredients. I am hoping that I can recreate the “kick” this dish has in my own kitchen. Is it possible to get this recipe? — D.M. Houston, Decatur
Tin Drum Asian Kitchen Founder Steven Chan says the Singapore Curry Chow Mein is one of the most popular dishes at Tin Drum and is THE most popular in Singapore. The Singapore Curry Chow Mein served at Tin Drum is a family recipe from Chan’s wife Silvia. It’s also known as Xing Zhou Mi Fen or Xing Zhou bee Hoon.
“This noodle dish is perfect for those seeking high flavor with the great combination of spice and savory kick,” said Chan. All the ingredients should be available at your favorite grocery store.
