Chinese Watercress Soup

I always have fond memories of having a large bowl of my mother’s authentic Asian soups going along with a bowl of rice before heading off to school. She would simmer it for hours and the aromatic herbs and spices would linger in the house for days. Out of all those homemade soups, Sai Yeung…

Singapore Chilli Crab

In Australia, we can definitely find the freshest seafoods, however, somehow, the best seafood dishes we have ever had are in Singapore! One of our favourites of all time is the famous Singapore chilli crab. We have been looking forward to make this for so long! For this recipe, we used the Queensland mud crab….

We can eat Pho ever

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…

A nice heartwarming bowl of noodle soup made of red braised beef, beef broth, green Bok choy vegetables and yummy homemade Chinese noodles is just the perfect comfort food for the cold Melbourne weather. This dish obviously originates from Taiwan, and is definitely one of our favorite types of beef noodle soup. The broth is…

Butter Prawns (Nai Yao Ha haha…haha…)

On almost every special occasion I had growing up, especially during birthdays, there would almost always be a plate of prawns for me. My mum believes it brings good luck, like how Chinese people have longevity noodles during New Years hoping for a longer life. Mum would grab a few pieces, put them on my…

Hot from the oven Hong Kong flaky Egg tarts!

If you like Cantonese Dim Sums, you should be very familiar with these hot crispy flaky Hong Kong (HK) egg tarts. Given our Cantonese backgrounds, it was the norm for our families to regularly gather at Yum Cha restaurants for lunches. We would stuff ourselves with so many amazing dim sums and get so excited every time a trolley…
