 One of the first times I had Pork Belly was at a Chinese restaurant following a funeral (I know, not exactly where you would expect to have memorable food experiences) but I was about 10 or 12 years old and I couldn’t get enough of this pork belly.  Crispy skin, melt in the mouth fat, moist and tender pork meat, no little salt and the taste of those spices; It took several more years to[…]

 This is my all time favourite dish since I was young.  Char Sau in Hakka is roast pork.  It is served in chinese takeaways all over the UK, but I find some of them can be quite dry.  I can eat it everyday, but it’s not a very healthy one as it contains quite a bit of fat and sugar. The most delicious part of the dish is the sauce.  I always find that the[…]

    Steamed minced pork is a traditional home-cooked meal that most chinese housewives will do.  It’s a very versatile dish that can be changed according to your personal preference.  Salted duck eggs is also another well-known chinese delicacy that is only available in oriental supermarkets.  The taste of salted duck eggs is richer than normal chicken eggs.   Ingredients: 500g of minced pork 2 cloves of garlic (finely chopped) 3 salted duck eggs (cooked[…]

 I chose this dish to be my first ever cooking blog appearance as it is the perfect sum up of how I cook most of the time.  Simple, easy and hassle-free.  I fell in love with this dish the very first time I had it in a Thai restaurant years ago.  Of course at that time, I had no idea how to cook it.  Most of my recipes are a result of = online research+personal[…]

 I first made this dish a year or two ago, I had planned to do something with Sea Bass but couldn’t get any, instead I spotted a deal on whole, fresh Sea Bream.  I had never used it before and I since discovered that it’s actually a family of fish so you can get a fairly wide variety under the name “Sea Bream”.  Regardless of what Sea Bream you actually get they all have a[…]

 So far I’ve done a western dish (Rigatoni ai quattro formaggi) and now I will do decidedly more eastern style dish.  Hainanese Chicken Rice is a very simple yet very tasty chinese recipe.  While I was out in Malaysia I had some at one of the “5-star Hainanese Chicken Rice” restaurants.  It lives up to its rather bold name, which is probably why there are now three of them spread across Kota Kinabalu. Hainanese chicken rice consists[…]
