Billionaires Fried Rice

One would expect Chinese fried rice to be filled with vibrant colours and many different ingredients. However, this Billionaires fried rice is a simple and healthier variant, very aromatic and with lovely texture. This is one of our go-to recipes to prep in bulk for the week, especially during those we-just-want-to-be-lazy days. The only challenge…

Modified Hong Kong style Borscht Soup

In this cold cold weather, nothings better than an amazing warm hearty vegetable soup!! One of the very first recipes we both learnt prior to even meeting each other was the Borscht soup, but more towards the Hong Kong style.

First thing to know about Phở  is not what it is… it’s how do we even say it right? Fuh! Prior to coming to Melbourne in year 2005, I have actually never heard of Pho before. I’m guessing Vietnamese food probably wasn’t that popular yet in Singapore then. However, over the years, I personally feel…

Char Siu (Chinese BBQ Roast Pork)

Char Siu, a red sweet and salty BBQ marinated roast pork, is an iconic Cantonese roast meat and served as thin sliced strips on top of noodles and rice dishes or just simply packed in a takeaway container for supper with family or friends. It is definitely one of the first top foods we would…

Claypot Eggplant

Eggplant is probably not the most popular (culinary) vegetable, but in our opinion, anything can taste delicious as long as it is cooked right. The Asian dish ‘Fish fragrant eggplant (yu xiang qie zi)‘ is definitely one of our top favourite way of eating eggplant, so we must learn this dish! It’s spicy, fragrant and…

Pandan Chiffon Cake

If we had to finish an entire cake in one go, it’ll definitely be a pandan chiffon cake. It is just way too easy to gobble it all up in one go! It’s just so soft, fluffy, airy and light! The idea of pairing coconut milk and pandan is just so ingenious. This cake is…
