Tteokbokki 1 - A homemade 떡볶이 Tteokbokki Recipe because I'm missing Seoul

In my 25 years of life, I’ve been fortunate enough to travel to a handful of countries. Though I have been to three continents, I can still say with certainty that my heart belongs to Asia. To me, the countries in Asia alone will leave your soul satisfied in every aspect, may it be culture, …

Sweet Potato Gnocchi 1 - Striking up a new love affair with this Sweet Potato Gnocchi Recipe

I’ve been bothering my friends a lot about my gnocchi craving. I haven’t been able to eat anything to satisfy it! I’m not quite sure which local Italian restaurant serves good gnocchi around here, but writing my New York Travel Diaries has made me regret so much that I didn’t stop to eat at Little …

Delimondo 1 - Adding pizzaz to a classic pasta with Delimondo Corned Beef

Two ways to go crazy for Jjajangmyeon 짜장면

There are two things I picked up from the past few years of watching Korean dramas: an unexpected attachment to the language, and a constant craving for jjajangmyeon. Jjajangmyeon (짜장면) is a popular Chinese-Korean noodle dish with a thick stir-fried black bean sauce on top. ‘Jjajang’ literally means fried sauce in Korean, with ‘myeon’ meaning …

Thinking about pasta and Shrimp Arrabbiata

Here’s a little confession: I used to be one of those people who would eat something with an interesting name but never bothered with finding out what the heck they mean. I never noticed before how with food, names hold that power of helping your mind transition into the flavours. It’s what helps you imagine …

This 20-Minute Spicy Peanut and Chicken Soba is the bomb

It’s a bit strange that I don’t make enough simple meals here on the blog. In fact I was quite surprised myself when I made this noodle dish. I managed to finish cooking it in less than 20 minutes, including prep time. At the end I literally went, ‘Wait a minute. That’s it?’ I guess I’m …
