Egg-Fried Rice that glowed!
Xiao Yanyu's pupils slowly widened and they were filled with incredulity. When Xiao Xiaolong told her about it, she did not believe him. Now that she had seen it, it still felt unreal.
Rich fragrance continuously rushed into Xiao Yanyu's nasal cavity, that smell was like a lover's caress causing her entire body to relax. Her mind was completely empty of distractions, there was only one thing in her mind: Eat it!
Xiao Yanyu was still a goddess of Light Wind Empire after all, she needed to maintain her image even if she was in front of gourmet food. She gently lifted up her veil and exposed her rosy and ample lips.
Using the blue and white porcelain spoon to scoop up a spoonful of Egg-Fried Rice; the egg fluid, which was not fully cooked, stretched as the spoon was lifted up. It was like a shining golden thread. Warm air rose from the blue and white porcelain spoon and a rich fragrance accompanied it.
Xiao Yanyu's skin, that was as fair as beancurd, turned red from the warm air.
"Elder sister, how is the taste of this improved Egg-Fried Rice?!" As Xiao Xiaolong breathed in the smell of the Egg-Fried Rice, he could not help but ask as he watched the spoon enter his sister's mouth.
The blue and white porcelain spoon lightly brushed against Xiao Yanyu's teeth and every single rice grain fell into her mouth. Xiao Yanyu narrowed her eyes as a burst of flavour rushed straight into her brain, as if a flavour bomb had exploded in her mouth.
Her taste buds were completely enveloped and conquered by the Egg-Fried Rice.
"Oh... It's... delicious!"
Xiao Yanyu gave an euphoric expression and she moaned. After that, she completely ignored the others and started to stuff spoon after spoon of Egg-Fried Rice into her mouth. Her image was completely destroyed within seconds.
She had never eaten an Egg-Fried Rice that tasted so good. As a fourth-grade Battle-Spirit, she almost did not need to consume food. For someone like her to have their appetite stimulated by a bowl of Egg-Fried Rice, it was almost unbelievable. As Xiao Xiaolong had said, it was a miraculous bowl of Egg-Fried Rice!
When Xiao Xiaolong saw Xiao Yanyu devouring her food without caring about her image, he did not laugh at her. He was looking at her enviously instead, there was even a rumbling sound coming from his stomach.
Sun Qixiang was speechless as he watched his dream goddess devouring her food, he could not understand her actions at all.
"It's just a bowl of Egg-Fried Rice... Is there a need to be so desperate?!
Even though this bowl of Egg-Fried Rice smells... really good, you're still a goddess. There's no need for you to throw away your image for a bowl of Egg-Fried Rice!"
"Shop owner! Where is my Egg-Fried Rice! Hurry up and serve it! Hurry!"
Even though Sun Qixiang was thinking that, he was even more curious about the Egg-Fried Rice. He closed the paper fan in his hand and glanced sideways. He shouted at Bu Fang who seemed to be smiling while watching Xiao Yanyu eat.
Bu Fang raised his eyebrows and indifferently glanced at Sun Qixiang. He did not say anything, but instead turned around and entered the kitchen.
"Hurry up! If I am not eating your Egg-Fried Rice by the time three minutes have passed, I will smash up this tiny little store!" Sun Qixiang arrogantly said.
Bu Fang expressionlessly entered the kitchen and took out a bag of flour from the refrigerator.
Was he going to cook Egg-Fried Rice? Wrong... Sun Qixiang actually dared to threaten him, a chef. Since that was the case, then he would have to go on an empty stomach for a while. He would understand soon enough, the fate of someone who offends a chef, especially a petty minded one.
Dry-Mixed Noodles was actually a simple dish. It was just pulled noodles mixed with seasoning.
However, the Dry-Mixed Noodles that Bu Fang used was handmade. With a special kneading technique used to create the noodles, the taste was definitely extraordinary.
As Bu Fang had already practiced this countless times, making a bowl of Dry-Mixed Noodles from dough would only need around ten minutes. His kneading skills were pleasing to the eyes, it was like his hands had disappeared and afterimages were kneading the dough.
After the kneading was done, he had to pull the noodles apart using moderate strength. Then he sprinkled some flour on the thin noodles and soaked them in hot water once.
The water used to cook the noodles was not ordinary either. It was clear and translucent and did not contain any impurities. The steam coming from it even had a little sweet smell in it.
While the noodles were being soaked, Bu Fang was preparing the seasoning. He placed a strict proportion of salt, soy sauce and monosodium glutamate into a blue and white porcelain bowl and poured a little hot water in it. Then he removed the noodles from the hot water and poured them into the bowl. Using bamboo chopsticks, he stirred the bowl which caused the color of the soy sauce to completely seep into the crystal clear noodles.
A bowl of steaming Dry-Mixed Noodles was complete.
There was no soup, egg or vegetables. It was purely a bowl of Dry-Mixed Noodles.
Bu Fang carried the bowl of Dry-Mixed Noodles out of the kitchen. The fragrance was not as strong as when he carried out the Egg-Fried Rice, but the color of the Dry-Mixed Noodles was appealing.
When Sun Qixiang saw Bu Fang walking out of the kitchen with a blue and white porcelain bowl, he thought his Egg-Fried Rice was here and excitedly went up to receive it.
"This is the sissy's Dry-Mixed Noodles," Bu Fang expressionlessly moved aside and simply said.
Sun Qixiang's expression froze and he angrily stared at Bu Fang with narrowed eyes. "Didn't I tell you to cook Egg-Fried Rice?! Who told you to cook Dry-Mixed Noodles! Do you want me to close down this business?!"
Bu Fang completely ignored Sun Qixiang, he set down the Dry-Mixed Noodles in front of Xiao Xiaolong and calmly said, "Here's your Dry-Mixed Noodles, enjoy your meal."
Xiao Xiaolong's eyes lit up. He was ravenous after being enticed by the Egg-Fried Rice, the smell was simply too tantalizing. He even overlooked the fact that Bu Fang called him a sissy.
Even though the Dry-Mixed Noodles was not the Egg-Fried Rice, it was better than having nothing to eat! Although the smell was not as rich as the other dish, there was still a burst of fragrance circulating within the nasal cavities if you breathed in deeply.
How could a bowl of Dry-Mixed Noodles being sold for a hundred gold coins be ordinary!
Xiao Xiaolong picked up a strand of noodle with his chopsticks and impatiently sucked it into his mouth.
Xiao Xiaolong's eyes widened in surprise. The noodle immediately slid into his mouth as if it had come alive. As the springiness was ample, it even bounced around his mouth after he bit it off. The feeling as it bounced around gave him an unusual enjoyment, it felt as if multiple tiny hands were lightly scratching his mouth.
With his mouth stuffed with noodles, Xiao Xiaolong's eyes narrowed into a slit. He shook his head with a face full of enjoyment.
Xiao Xiaolong's expression was reflected in Sun Qixiang's eyes. He could no longer suppress his curiosity, he could not wait any further.
"Hurry up and get back into the kitchen! I want to immediately taste the Egg-Fried Rice and Dry-Mixed Noodles!"
Sun Qixiang coldly stared at Bu Fang.
"You seemed to have forgotten who you're speaking to? Also, stop rushing me. If I hear another word, I am blacklisting you."
Bu Fang's eyebrows knitted together, he was getting more dissatisfied. He thought, "This guy is looking for trouble."
"You're very cocky, I may just tear down your store!" Sun Qixiang said threateningly, while poking Bu Fang's chest with his paper fan.
Bu Fang responded with a smile. Since he seldom smiled, his smile looked stiff.
He did not say anything further and returned to the kitchen.
After approximately thirty minutes, Bu Fang leisurely came back.
Xiao Xiaolong and Xiao Yanyu had already finished their meals, but they did not leave. They still had to pay their bills, and more importantly, to take a look at the Stir-Fried Vegetables.
They had already witnessed Egg-Fried Rice and Dry-Mixed Noodles, there was only Stir-Fried Vegetables to go.
Based on the standards of the other dishes, Stir-Fried Vegetables would surely be out of the ordinary as well.
When the famished Sun Qixiang finally saw his food being carried out of the kitchen, he was so excited that he quickly came forward and snatched the tray away from Bu Fang.
There were four dishes on the tray. There were two bowls of Egg-Fried Rice that were so fragrant that the smell enveloped the entire restaurant. There was also another bowl of Dry-Mixed Noodles with an enticing color, and also... A fresh piece of... leaf?!
Since Sun Qixiang ordered all of the dishes, Bu Fang cooked all of them at once.
It seemed that the piece of leaf might be the legendary... Stir-Fried Vegetables.
"Are you an idiot? Why didn't you serve me dish by dish? Are you deliberately trying to starve me?!" Sun Qixiang transfixedly breathed in the smell of the Egg-Fried Rice, then turned towards Bu Fang and scolded him.
Bu Fang could not be bothered to answer him. What was Sun Qixiang expecting after offending a chef? He should be thankful that he did not have to wait an additional hour or two.
So, why would Bu Fang serve the dishes on time? It was not because he was afraid of Sun Qixiang. There was a reason for it...
"System, are you sure that thing you gave me will work?"
"[Abyssal Chilli Sauce], the chilli used is selectively chosen from the extremely spicy Facing Heaven Pepper that grows in the abyss. It is extremely intense after experiencing the daily essence energy respiration of the abyssal devils. A single drop will cause a person to feel as if their entire body is on fire. A spoonful will cause a person to experience hallucinations. A jar is deadly."
The system solemnly explained the chilli sauce that Bu Fang added into the Egg-Fried Rice.
