My first attempt at Cantonese-style Char Siu Pork

Char Siu Pork 1 - My first attempt at Cantonese-style Char Siu Pork

It seems only proper that I squeeze in this little recipe for Char Siu Pork after writing about New York’s Chinatown. I didn’t really get to go on a food trip there, but we did eat a late lunch at one of the restaurants, and since we were in a hurry I didn’t bother documenting …

Palitaw 1 - Remembering Buwan ng Wika with this quick Palitaw recipe [VIDEO]

It’s a real shame when things don’t go as planned. I had this whole thing set in my head. I wanted to fill my blog this month of August with all things Filipino-related, just because it was the Buwan ng Wika– the Filipino language month. Apart from this Palitaw recipe, I had a list of …

The Buchi (麻糰): A Chinese restaurant favourite with many names

After writing about a Chinese restaurant in my previous post, I got in the mood to talking about a dessert that’s often served in local Chinese restaurants after a heavy multi-course meal.

Dimsum– quite possibly one of the best things about living in Asia. Also one of the best things about living in a country where there are so many excellent Chinese/Cantonese restaurants.

A special love for Japan and its gyoza

One of my dream countries to visit is Japan. I’ve been to quite a few Asian countries but have never really visited Japan because it’s too expensive, as they say.

Learning about Basic Dumpling Wrappers

I’ve had the acclaimed Asian Dumplings book since forever, but I haven’t exactly made anything from it until recently, when I finally managed to pick out which recipe I wanted to start with. Every time I flip through this book, it gets more and more difficult for me to find just one recipe to do …
