    After 3 years of planning, designing, re-designing and procrastinating, we’ve finally started our kitchen remodel. I’ve been both looking forward to and dreading the start date – three weeks without a kitchen is traumatic. Well, I should say estimated three weeks. Which probably means closer to 3 months in home remodel timeline. I spent all weekend cleaning out the cabinets and boxing/trashing the contents. Those sneaky cabinets and pantry can certainly hold a lot of secrets. Like 6 year old jar of plum sauce. A can of Spam that has no expiration date (7 years ago, I had a…

    I like Danang. Whoever is in charge down there is making a nice city. Compared to Hanoi or Saigon it's a tad sterile, lacking that street-level frenzy and coating of old-world grime. But the traffic flows uncongested for the most part. Roads are wide, lines are clean, city planning seems to have foresight. Buildings gleam, the marble statues by the Han River are polished and the river water itself is actually almost blue. Good air quality is assured by Danang's breezy seaside location. It makes a nice change. As does what is on the table. Like the local holiday-makers from Hanoi and…

      I love Pampered Chef! 10 years ago, one of my best friends sold Pampered Chef products and to this day, some of my very favorite kitchen doo-dads are from PC. The quality is excellent – a lot of thought went into the design and development of each and every one of their products. Earlier, Pampered Chef sent several items for us to review and give away. The Collapsible Serving bowl is used daily in our kitchen. We use it as our giant salad bowl that we bring out to the dinner table. Because it collapses, it takes up very little room in my dishwasher and cabinets. Love it so…

    On our travels, we can meekly sit down at an uncrowded table and eat mediocre food. In fact, to us it might register as good food. How would we know? One principle that we espouse on our street food tours of Hanoi - when navigating unfamiliar food terrain on one's own, seek out places where the locals are shoulder to shoulder - served us well during our week in Seoul earlier this year. We've become quite adept at observing the prevailing culture around a busy eatery, mimicking local behaviour and confidently smiling our way into a queue or onto a bench. The "I'll have what…

    When I came to Vietnam, I overcame my aversion to breakfast. These days there would be a dietary intolerance or a term to describe the kind of antipathy I felt when I was younger. All those tedious mornings as a child, dwelling over milk, cereal and toast followed by the teenage rebellion of bypassing breakfast for more shut-eye meant that - except for special weekend brunches of cooked morning fare - I was rarely eating anything substantial before noon. Today I leap out of bed to noodles and rice in renditions too numerous to name. Taken street-side, the siblings and parents of my younger…
  • Seoul Dining 2: Mung Bean Cake

    stickyrice
    3 Jun 2014 | 2:39 am
    At one convergence of halls at Seoul's Kwang Jang Market, there is jostling over mung beans. Not the raw ingredient but an enormous crisp pancake made of them. Called 'bindaetteok' or 'nokdujeon', it is reminiscent of Japan's 'okonomiyaki' in terms of size and capacity to satisfy, though is less rich and heavy. This market, on a busy intersection in Seoul's Jongno district, houses a dozen or so stalls specialising in this snack and that's what all the jostling is about - deciding on one's vendor, identifying seated customers about to take their last…

    Twenty-two years ago, while living in Sapporo, Japan, I nearly made it to Seoul. There was a week where it looked as if a visa run was necessary but in the end the trip never eventuated. In the ensuing years, I've barely given the place a thought. That's not entirely true; I thought about it twice - once, just before I started blogging here, my old mate in Saigon mentioned another blog, the now defunct Fat Man Seoul. The other time, more recently, was when I was reading Barbara Demick's depressing re-telling of the lives of North Koreans in 'Nothing to Envy', many of whom…

    What's the best way to get ideas on what to cook everyday? In my case, ninety percent of the time, it's about what we have in the fridge, the freezer and the pantry. You know... put them together and what have you got? It's not bibbidi-bobbidi-boo, however, as there is no magic in the kitchen. Even Mrs. Weasley admits as much. I take out what ingredients there are, line them up, contemplate then come up with a game plan. Where do I get inspiration ten percent of the time? Pinterest, you think? No.
  • Gaeng om: Thai herbed pork and vegetables

    Connie Veneracion
    28 Aug 2014 | 2:40 am
    Gaeng om is a herb-y, spicy and hot pork dish with vegetables. I use "spicy" and "hot" separately because... well, it's funny how so many people say spicy when they mean hot. Spicy can mean any number of things: zesty, piquant, earthy, pungent and, yes, hot. But "hot" doesn't encompass all the other spicy flavors so to use the two words interchangeably is simply wrong. I must admit that I made that mistake in the past but I've learned so this soup is both spicy and hot. It derives various spicy flavors from the garlic, lemongrass and ginger; it gets its heat from the chilies and the ginger.

    Murukku underway in Tamil Nadu     Some places do snacks really well. Thailand is one, Sumatra another. And then there is India, a country in a Snack Class all its own. In Tamil Nadu we found the snacks so copious, so varied, so readily available that we could have foregone proper meals and subsisted on snacks alone for days.     For me, food is "snack" if it's portable and can be eaten with one hand. My ideal snack is also liquor friendly; extra points if it's crispy. Unsauced samosa and vadai, bhajii and bonda qualify as snacks. So do…

I know what I like as someone who lives right in the heart of the city right now. But I also remember what struck me as an observer keen on finding a story, and what I wanted from and liked best about the city as a traveler without a mission.     Every week I receive emails asking for recommendations -- for restaurants and hawker stalls,…

        I didn't eat helva until I was in graduate school. Dave and I lived in Boston's south end around the corner from a tiny Lebabanese restaurant, where at the end of every meal (chunks of ice-cold cucumber napped with minty thick yogurt got us through a long hot summer) diners were presented with a thin slice of helva. Its airy-foamy texture and nutty flavor reminded me of the innards of a Butterfinger bar. I liked it, but not enough to pursue helva elsewhere.     A decade later we were in Istanbul, where helva is everywhere. At first I didn't…

    Here's Shuma this morning, before his first day of school! Well not really his first day, but it kind of feels like it. He had his first real day way back in April, and attended one week of half days, but then we went to Canada for three months so he missed the rest of the first term. Why we went back to Canada (and why I've been absent for months) is the post I should be writing, but I'm not quite ready for it yet so I'll do a kindergarten post instead. So a little background: the Japanese school year starts in April and runs until March, with vacations during the summer, new…

    So here are the rest of the pictures from our trip to Canada this winter. The biggest event (besides Christmas, which I covered here) was the ice storm, which left everything encased in ice for well over a week. Not to mention thousands of people left without elecricity for several days over Christmas. We were lucky and kept our power, but two of our trees were damaged. This is the elm in our front yard, and what looks like bushes beneath it is a pile of branches that snapped off. This tree will be fine, but it produced a surprising about of debris. The corkscrew willow in our backyard…

    We celebrated Christmas with my family in Canada last year, a first for Shuma and the first in 15 years for me. Christmas Eve began with our traditional lasagne dinner, then Shuma checked out the tree and all the Christmas loot (we'd been home for almost a week and it had been a daily battle to stop him from opening them all, but he showed restraint on Christmas Eve). Then Baboo, my dad, started a fire. And Shuma and I opened our Christmas Eve boxes and changed into our new Christmas jammies, then after a reading of A Visit From St Nicholas we hung up our stockings. One stocking for each…

    Here is this year's nengajo (new year postcard). For the first time ever it doesn't feature this year's zodiac animal (which is the horse), because Shuma doesn't pose well (I did buy a stuffed horse but he wouldn't sit still with it for pictures) and there is a law in Japan that says once you have children you must include a picture of them on your nengajo. So it's just him. He's looking at an airplane by the way, a tiny one way up high that nobody but a little kid would notice. Anyway, wishing a very Happy New Year to all of my readers!

And it's mostly just pictures, I have to hurry up and finally get this posted because in a few days I'll be back in Canada. "You're going back again?

    Several communities in the Inle Lake region play host to a revolving market. Once every five days, a particular town’s market will swell to several times its normal size, practically bursting with vendors, shoppers and exotic (and not so exotic) produce. Some of these markets are found at remote locations only generally accessible by foot or boat, while others take place in already established markets in bustling market towns. Nyaungshwe, the town Myanmar’s Shan State that essentially functions as the gateway to Inle Lake, is an example of the latter. It has an already large,…

    Few people seem to make it to Lamphun, which is a pity. The city is located 30km south of Chiang Mai, but getting there is part of the fun, particularly if you go via the old highway, which is edged by towering rubber trees: and which passes through small towns. And Lamphun itself, although small, is charming: hardly a surprising setting for an equally charming, longstanding restaurant serving northern Thai food. Dao Kanong has been around for 40 years now, a history that’s evident in the restaurant’s somewhat institutional and bare dining room. The food isn’t as rustic as…

    Portuguese food is relatively little known, and the reputation it does have tends to involve words like “stodgy” or “meat and potatoes”. But after two visits to the country, I’ve found that eating in Portugal is a lot like eating in Thailand: unpretentious, garlicky, messy, cheap, boozy, full flavoured and fun. True, meat and potatoes pop up a lot, and the cuisine isn’t as varied or spicy as that of Thailand — or as diverse or sophisticated as that of Spain, to which it’s often compared — but Portuguese food is just plain good; not a…

    Northern Thai food can be frustratingly elusive. Even in Chiang Mai, the region’s largest city and cultural and culinary capital, there aren’t many places serving local dishes. And the restaurants that do exist tend to sell similar repertoires of meaty dishes for a predominately male clientele, or are targeted at tourists (of all genders) and tend to lack real northern flavours and ingredients. Truth is, if you’re in Chiang Mai and want to try good local food, the best option is to make a local friend and try to score a home-cooked meal, or to buy take-away food from one of…

    Phrae, a little-visited town in northern Thailand, is probably the region’s most famous place for laap and other meaty, northern Thai-style dishes. Yet the glowing rep has meant that many of the town’s cooks have opened shop elsewhere in northern Thailand, and today most restaurants with the name Laap Phrae are found far outside the tiny town’s city limits. Yet one guy who chose to stay in his hometown is Wiwat Kanka, the chef/owner at Jin Sot: Jin Sot is northern Thai for fresh meat, an apt name for this open-air restaurant that serves an entire repertoire of northern…

    22 May 2014 | 7:38 am
    Hot Pot meal is good for people who enjoy spending time around the dining table. It is relaxing and fun, however keeps you busy though in doing the cooking yourself.Over the Easter holidays, I found a Sichuan restaurant with attractive holiday lunch sets.  So after the set lunch, we went to try out the hot pot set.  It was equally good.The booth we had was very spacious and comfortable for two.  There was no real fire.  The hot pot was set on an electric stove.  We were offered a small side table to ensure that our main dining table won't be too messy.As for soup…
  • Classic Hong Kong Cantonese Noodle Snacks

    12 May 2014 | 6:31 am
    If you've been in Hong Kong long enough, you may have come across many local Cantonese saying 'let's go do a bowl of wanton noodle'.  In fact, noodle is a very important part of Hong Kong Cantonese cuisine.  You can eat it as an afternoon treat or as a casual light meal.There are many combinations.  Tonight I've opt for a Beef Tendon noodle.  This is quite a bit of a rare choice.  Why?  Chinese believe in 'eat something similar for the best of human benefit'.  Let me make it easier to understand.  If you want to eat something to benefit your brain, eat…

    Today (21/4) is the last day of Easter Holidays.  My family went on a belated Ching Ming grave sweeping, leaving me home alone, because I was suffering from leg pain. Since I couldn't walk much, eating have been the main theme of my holiday activities. Eat well to cheer up a sick person.  Even I'm alone, I still go on a slightly luxury solo dim sum lunch to wrap up my Easter Holidays.Sportful Garden Restaurant is quite a high-end restaurant nearby my home. The food there is not bad at all, but every time they had something to upset me.Today I ordered four of their signature…

  • Banh Mi for Labor Day Parties and Lunch Boxes

    Andrea Nguyen
    28 Aug 2014 | 5:09 pm
    Two of my colleagues in food media framed banh mi in interesting ways this week. Amy Sherman, a smart food writer in the Bay Area and blogger at Cooking with Amy, discussed The Banh Mi Handbook in a roundup of cookbooks that can rescue people from lunch ruts. Whether you have kids to pack lunches for, or are doing it just for yourself, things can get boring. Cue Vietnamese sandwiches. Amy admitted something that I’ve heard from many folks – why make banh mi when you can get decent ones at a deli or banh mi shop? “But I had to wonder, when I can get a terrific banh mi sandwich for just a…

    Last July, my husband and I had a marvelous vacation in Washington, D.C., and the surrounding areas. I wrote about visiting historic sites like Gettysburg and enjoying amazing southern food and hospitality. One thing I didn’t emphasize enough was the Smithsonian Museum’s programs on the Asian American experience.

  • Quick Green Mango Pickle Recipe

    Andrea Nguyen
    19 Aug 2014 | 6:56 am
    Last Saturday, after teaching all day, I was dead tired but I was bent on making this Indian mango pickle. I’d purchased the two green (unripe) mangoes at an Asian market on Thursday and feared them ripening sooner than later. Mango can ripen quickly and you can’t really tell by the green skin and hard texture. Something is happening inside. I had to do something with them, lest I waste the relatively rare specimens. Unless you’re in tropical Asia or other mango-laden area where there maybe a nearby mango tree or mango vendor, rock hard, green mangoes are hard to find. In the U.S., we…

    Traditionally, Korean people ate rice, a few side dishes, and a bowl of soup or stew for breakfast. Now people in Korea sometimes eat cereal, pastries, or egg sandwiches for breakfast, similar to people in the West. This Korean breakfast sandwich, sold by street vendors in cities, is commonly called tost-u (toast) or gaeran tost-u (egg toast). It's not that different from an American egg sandwich, but the addition of cabbage and a sweet dusting of brown sugar are tasty Korean additions.

    Bibim Gooksu is the noodle version of bibimbap. These spicy cold mixed noodles are wonderful in the summer when you don't want to spend a lot of time at the stove and you don't feel like eating hot, heavy dishes. It's easy to make but full of spice, flavor, and texture, so it's still feels like a complete and satisfying meal. I like to make Bibim Gooksu with buckwheat noodles since it's so delicious and healthy, but you can substitute other thin noodles if you don't have any soba at home.

Not a lot going on in this part of Japan (though I did find a retro gaming bar called Genesis; with almost every console ever made). A local search for ramen showed Hanamaru as the obvious (and only) choice.Just a few stops down the line.Just a few blocks from the station.Solid. This bowl of rich tonkotsu soup was slightly reminiscent of my favorite bowl in the country (of this style), Orenoramenappare.
