  • Pan-Fried Noodles with Soy Sauce

    Pan-Fried Noodles with Soy Sauce

    What is a classic dish? Something traditional? Something that has survived through time that this ever-changing culture does not get tired of? Something so good, and so true to an identity that it has been stamped with a “no further modification needed”? Classic dishes live among all cuisine, and for the Cantonese, this Pan-fried Noodles […]

  • Beef and Shredded Lettuce Fried Rice

    Beef and Shredded Lettuce Fried Rice

    Hello! I know it’s been a while since I’ve shared a recipe but I’ve just been super busy this holiday season! I’m currently sweating over my 2014 holiday project (check out what I did for the last three years!) Every year, I look forward to December to work on something special like this and I can’t […]

  • Chinese Broccoli with Chinese Sausage

    Chinese Broccoli with Chinese Sausage

    Kai Lan (Chinese broccoli) is one of my favorite vegetables! It’s a little like broccoli, a little like broccolini, a little like kale and mustard greens. If you were to combine all of the veggies above, you’d pretty much get Chinese broccoli. You’ve probably seen Kai/Gai Lan on the menu at Chinese restaurants or other Southeast Asian cuisine […]

  • Chicken and Broccoli Baked Rice Hong Kong Style

    Chicken and Broccoli Baked Rice Hong Kong Style

    As a former British colony, Hong Kong cafes or Cha Chaan Tengs have adapted many western ingredients such as cheese, milk, spaghetti, and tomato sauce. That’s really how many iconic Hong Kong dishes were born. (Remember that Spaghetti Bolognese I made a while back?) Well today, I’m sending your way another popular dish (made with own my twist) that’s […]

  • Nutella Banana Bread

    Nutella Banana Bread

    When life gives you ripe bananas, make Nutella Banana Bread! I happen to have some ripe bananas laying around so I whipped out my favorite banana bread recipe. My mom used to make banana bread a lot, and the house would be filled with this amazing aroma of freshly baked banana bread. Seriously, if you […]

  • Kimchi Fried Rice

    Kimchi Fried Rice

    Total comfort food – Kimchi Fried Rice / Kimchi Bokkeumbap (김치볶음밥). I can just eat kimchi with a big bowl of rice – lunch or dinner – and I’d be perfectly happy. Good kimchi is never hard to find (at least in New York). Unless you are Korean, then your home will always have homemade (and unique) […]

  • Chinese Long Beans With Ground Pork

    Chinese Long Beans With Ground Pork

    Remember when I wrote that post a while ago about my Hakka heritage? Well, I kinda promise myself that I’d cook more Hakka dishes for the blog this year, and this Chinese long beans with ground pork is one of them. It’s a stir-fry so it’s really easy to prep, and you can have dinner on […]

  • Chicken and Rice Soup With Choy Sum

    Chicken and Rice Soup With Choy Sum

    Guys. I’m obsessed. I don’t use that word often but for today’s post, I just think it’s appropriate. Two things that I’m obsessed with for the past three months: A Chef’s Life, and chicken and rice. The PBS show A Chef’s Life reminds me a ton of how I grew up in the countryside of Hong Kong. It […]

  • Asian Chicken Burgers

    Asian Chicken Burgers

    I got a brand new food processor. I know, I know. How could I live and cook without one for so long? What I got isn’t very big which is exactly why I chose it. I live in New York City, using my countertop space efficiently while I’m cooking can be challenging sometimes. I figured a […]

  • Singapore-Style Rice Vermicelli

    Singapore-Style Rice Vermicelli

    I don’t just like this dish, I LOVE this dish. In a way, Singapore-Style Rice Vermicelli (星洲炒米) (Singapore rice noodles or Singapore Mei Fun) is part of the identity of Hong Kong cuisine. It’s a dish that every Hong Konger is familiar with growing up along with other east-meets-west fusion fairs that you can find in a Cha […]
