I am not a Korean food expert, but my friend, Cactuskit is. He’s the type of guy who would pack his four kids into an MPV and drive across the Korean Peninsula to look for good food! So, when he told me that he has found his new, favorite Korean restaurant, I thought that I might […]
Easy-peasy Cheesy Coin Prata Recipe – with USA Cheese
I’d bet you all never even thought of making coin prata at home, right? You are probably intimidated by the idea of having to flip your own prata dough in order to make these delicious little snacks! Well, I have just the hack you need! In this recipe, we will be using spring roll skins […]
I first fell in love with KL Hokkien mee when my cousin brought me to eat the dish in Petaling Jaya decades ago. What I like about it is the toothsome texture of the noodles paired with the umami black sauce and the crunch of the crispy pork lard. It really is a combination made […]
Ah Pui Satay: Ah Pui finally opens his own restaurant!
The good news is that Ah Pui has finally opened his own restaurant and you don't have to wait 6 months to get to try his satay! The not so good news is that if you rush down expecting to get blown away, then you might come away deflated. The satay still has that characteristic extra large piece of fat and Ah Pui is still behind the grill, but somehow, it seemed to have lost its mojo.
In recent years, there seems to be an increased number of restaurant chefs who have decided to leave their restaurant jobs to become hawkerpreneurs. That is a very encouraging trend, especially if its a western trained chef who have decided to go back to his/her culinary roots. These new stalls invariably attract lots of attention on the […]
Seafood Pao Fan has gained much popularity in recent years, but at its core, it is simply a way of making use of overnight rice and whatever you have in the fridge to make a flavourful soup to pour over the rice. However, as you survey the most popular pao fan stalls in Singapore, you […]
I am very excited to share with you this Focaccia Recipe which I learnt from a pastry chef after we had the most amazing Foccacia bread at her restaurant! The recipe is relatively easy but it has two components which is essential in creating the unique texture and flavour. The first is the use of […]
This is yet another recipe which took me years to perfect. Sure, there are many Satay recipes online and in recipe books but none of them will actually give you the same result as the Hainanese pork satay that you get at the hawker stalls. Most of them are based on the Malay style chicken satay. What makes Hainanese pork satay different is not only that it is made of pork meat and lard, but the marinade is also different.
Twenty Hearty Recipes to cook for such a time as this
By @FeiEats I thought it would be good to pull together a selection of hearty recipes that will fill our stomachs and bring us comfort for such a time as this. Megan (my daughter) and I curated these from the hub’s extensive list of recipes that are typically well researched and tested. We deliberated and […]
Pineapple tarts are one of my all time favourite Chinese New Year snacks. I find them irresistible, especially when paired with Bak Kwa and a cup of tea. I like the covered tarts, (which really should be called a shortbread cake) with a buttery, powdery crust which melts in your mouth with little resistance. However, […]
Mapo tofu is one of those dishes that make a regular appearance at our dinner table. It is cheap and easy to cook and it goes so well with rice! But recently, I discovered that you can bring it to the next level by using Pixian Dou Ban that we got from Lazada! In the […]
