Stir-fried tomato and scrambled eggs (番茄炒鸡蛋): A very simple, common dish and partucularry prominent around Shanghai. This dish remind me of the fun memory few years back at Shanghai where I used to stay at least half a year working with fellow mate at China exhibition design company. One of my Shanghainese colleague introduced me to this delish dish and she even cook for me for our dinner! Such a sweetheart ❤️ I remember she told me,

"In China, when a girl reached her puberty it is very important for her to learn cooking as part of the preparation for her future domestic role. The most basic and simple dish that she should know how to cook is this: Stir-fried tomato and scrambled eggs!"
