New favourite Japanese snacks, December 2015 edition [Vol. 2]

By now I think most people have heard about the most recent earthquakes that have created such destruction in Japan and Ecuador. This post is my way of showing solidarity during these difficult times. My prayers go out to all those who have been affected by the earthquake, both in Japan and Ecuador. I’ve only …

My favourite Sesame Soba topped with sweet-spicy salmon

When it comes to food, there are few things I love more than Asian noodles. It doesn’t matter which country in Asia it’s from or whether there’s soup or not– if it’s a noodle dish I’ll eat it. (For pasta I’m a little pickier since I don’t generally eat white sauce, but I also adore …

Let’s cook Kimchi Fried Rice with the help of Petron Gasul!

As a home cook and baker, one of my major concerns has always been safety in the kitchen especially when it comes to my stove and oven. You know how sometimes you’re switching your oven off like it’s second nature without really thinking about it, and then you leave the house, are in your car …

A quick Bibimbap recipe to curb sudden cravings

I am a huge fan of Korean dramas. I think at the moment, South Korea produces the best dramas in Asia, and somehow, despite the fact that some of the core themes and elements get recycled from drama to drama, the actors can covey them differently and the writers find a way to put a …

Two Banchan dishes 반찬 using one easy recipe

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. No, we’re not talking about Mango Sago, though that’s pretty much a staple too. I’m actually talking about the Buchi, or the Fried …

Dabbling in Indian food with my first Chicken Shahi Korma Recipe

What comes to your mind when I say colourful food? My thoughts for some reason, always drift to Indian food. If you line up Indian dishes side by side it would look like a rainbow of interestingness. And the best part is that Indian food cooked right never disappoints in the taste department. I admit …

Indian Bread Diaries #1: Learning how to make Soft Roti or Phulka

I don’t often mention it on the blog but Indian cuisine has become one of my favourites in the recent years. I especially love eating Indian Roti Canai with lightly spicy curry. Something about it is so immensely satisfying I can’t even put it to words. I just love this duo particularly, but I’m a …
