Making Easy Lemongrass Pork Banh Mi At Home

Lemongrass Pork Banh Mi 1 - Making Easy Lemongrass Pork Banh Mi At Home

It’s amazing how open-minded people are nowadays. This “evolution” is one of the things I credit for the influx of all these delightful brands and food products from overseas. Being exposed to curious things abroad through the web, people are now more willing to try new things. 20 years ago, before the Internet became a …

How to make Salted Egg Lava Buns at home

Salted Egg Lava Buns Recipe

I can’t even properly express how excited I am to share this recipe for Salted Egg Lava Buns with you all! After a few frustrating tries, you’d think I’d have developed a sort of “allergy” when it came to testing recipes for this particular bun already. Well this is one of those times when my …

Awesome Korean snacks to bring home from your trip! [Vol. 1]

KSnacks 1 - Awesome Korean snacks to bring home from your trip! [Vol. 1]

In my opinion, there are two countries that seem to make packaged snack foods that go above and beyond the quality and creativity one would expect– one is Japan, and the other is South Korea. I imagine between these two countries, you will never run out of things to try. I don’t know about you, …

Red Bean Tangzhong Bread 1 - The surprising charms of Asian Red Bean Bread

When it comes to beans, I’m not really particular. I neither actively seek them out nor do I remove them piece by piece from my chilli. They’re just one of those things I don’t mind, you know? But there are particular moments when I’d eat them wholeheartedly, and one of them would certainly be when …

Seoul-ful Spring 2016: A quick morning run to Namdaemun Market

Namdaemun COVER - Seoul-ful Spring 2016: A quick morning run to Namdaemun Market

We arrived in Incheon at around 4am, groggy and stiff thanks to a fairly uncomfortable plane ride. Early morning hunger pangs were strong, so we stopped by CU to have a little snack after picking up our luggage. Food definitely helps clear heads after a super early morning flight. The quickest way from Incheon to …

Namsan Seoul Tower, more commonly known as N Seoul Tower, is one of Seoul’s most recognisable landmarks today. It’s frequented by both locals and foreigners alike, and is very popularly known as that place with all the love locks.
