Chinese New Year is always filled with such happiness and festive joy. While many of us love to stuff ourselves silly with pineapple tarts, there’s always going to be a place in our bellies for this favourite that no one can miss – Bah Kwa.
When Chinese New Year is around the corner, there’s always gonna be the usual “standard items” that come to mind. Red packets, 三姑六婆 relatives, New Year goodies and snacks, and last but not least… the ever important annual reunion dinner!
Tweet tweet! Japanese styled Yakitori is the perfect stuff to go with your sake, and great food to have on the go, any time of the day. And we mean any time of the day, since there is no complex ingredients needed in order to make these babies.
Ahhhh pulled pork, there’s no denying it’s sweet and savory goodness.
It’s flavorful, sweet, tangy and a little spicy at the same time, plus it can be eaten at any time of the day. Once it’s done, you can stuffed and eat it between soft white buns or have it paired with creamy mashed potatoes, or even on its own. The MAGIC is the 8-10 hour slow and low roasting process in the oven, that makes the meat fall right off, It can be really tender and juicy, such that all you need are forks to pull it apart. Topped with our homemade barbercue sauce, this is one dripping yummy pile of goodness.
If you’re a fan of meat roasts, this is a must-do! Enjoy this yummilicious dish and share it with your friends!
Happy New Year everyone!
It’s a good day for dim sum! This time around we thought about giving dim sum a try, and we choose to make our very own… Siew Mai 燒賣 !
This is for the MEAT lovers. Char Siew can really be legendary when done well, but the best part of it is that cooking it is REALLY simple too!
We all know that Gordon Ramsay came to Singapore a couple weeks back to compete with our local hawkers, and this dish being one of the competing dishes, became our inspiration to pay tribute to the man himself. ????
Sio bak, or 烧肉 in chinese, is a dish popular with many people locally. The crispy skin of the pork, combined with the juicy flavor in the oozing meat makes this recipe a killer winner.
Katong Laksa, like chicken rice and Char Kway Teow, is one of the dishes that almost all Singaporeans know. So after eating it for so many years we decided to find out how it is made. (Something we discovered: the coconut milk should simmer gently as boiling it too harshly causes the soup to thicken up really fast). Aside from that, I would say that we manage to replicate the familiar taste of Katong Laksa.
Mother’s Day — also known as the day everybody stresses about to their friends but never really getting round to doing much — calls for some tender loving attention. The one thing every mother would love nothing more, would be to settle down on a Sunday afternoon with her kids, and dig into a buttery cake with a comforting cup of tea. And no, you’re not allowed to takeaway the cake from P.S Cafe.
We made the choice of using simple tomato sauce to compliment the chorizo sausage that we got for this – which was rather delish. If you are to try, BE VERY DELICATE with the ravioli, and that when cooking them the do not break, so as to keep the meaty taste within these happy pouches. (We broke a couple and those were rather diluted, sadly)
Made using the bread (made by miss x) and pesto sauce from pasta john we got from the farmers market, a simple toast for a quick bite.
