The traditional recipe involves first deep frying the potatoes and shallots separately and then mashing and moulding it into little pucks for deep frying.
Ieat’s Chinese Roast Pork, Siu Yuk, Sio Bak Recipe II
Chinese roast pork is something you can easily do at home. My last recipe was published in 2011 and since then I have refined the method to produce a skin that is even more crisp! The key to a shatteringly crisp rind is a two part process where the skin is roasted till it is […]

Chinese Style Roast Chicken is one of my all time favourite dishes. But you probably realize that this "roast" chicken is a misnomer because the way they cook the chicken is to deep fry the whole bird in a big vat of oil! Unlike the Western style roast chicken which is traditionally a dish served at home for Sunday lunches , not many Chinese families would actually cook "Roast" Chicken at home. Roasting a whole bird in the oven is something very practical for the modern kitchen as most homes would have an oven. However, not many kitchens are equipped to deep fry a whole bird, so the Chinese Roast Chicken is something you usually eat outside.

Japanese Cheesecake Recipe: Almost everything you need to know!
So why another Japanese Cheesecake recipe? Well, I wanted to pen down everything I learnt over the last few months of cake baking so that you don't have to make the same mistakes that I have made. Cake baking is more of a science than an art. For non-bakers like myself, I have had to learn the hard way that there is a difference between using a non-stick pan vs an aluminum pan. Such things are seldom discussed in the myriad of recipes online, so I had to do a lot of research, reading up on cookbooks as well as seeking tips from professional bakers such as Chef Yamashita
Hotplate tofu is one of the most popular dishes at the Cze Char. It actually works very well as a home dish as it really goes well with rice. If you don't have a hotplate, you can simply fry the eggs in a pan and then lay it on the plate and pour the tofu sauce over. Of course, the hotplate adds to the extra-dimension of smell and sound to heighten the anticipation of the dish!
This recipe is actually very easy and you should be able to get it right the first time. The cereal mix can be used for prawns or squid or any even pork and chicken although the most commonly used meat is prawns. Here I am using squid only because I came back from a fishing trip with a whole lot of squid. But you can easily substitute the squid for prawns to make the classic dish.
Sliced Garoupa with Ginger and Green Onions recipe
Stir fried sliced grouper is one of those classic dishes that you order at the restaurants as well as the Cze Char. It is also one of those dishes that you probably have at home. But you probably wonder how they get the fish so tender and smooth at the restaurant! The key is a […]
When I was a kid, 京都排骨 (jing du pai gu – lit Kyoto pork ribs) or 排骨王 (pai gu wang – lit pork rib king) was my all time favourite dish. I used to always look forward to eating it whenever our family went out for dinner at the Chinese restaurant. According to Chef Chris […]
I love sweet and sour pork. In fact, I think it is probably one of the top 3 most popular dishes amongst Singaporeans. Every economical rice stall will have this dish in one of their trays and you should be able to order it at every Cze Char stall. The great thing about this dish […]
