    Moo Goo Gai Pan Recipe is a post from: Yzenith Chinese food Recipes Moo Goo Gai Pan Recipe   Moo Goo Gai Pan is a traditional Chinese food introduced by Cantonese. Moo Goo is a Cantonese pronunciation for mushroom (pinyin: mo gu). This Moo Goo Gai Pan recipe is very simple.

  • Khanonkrok Done in a Classic Pot

    Appon's Thai Food Recipes
    8 Jan 2015 | 5:12 am
    Khanon Krok is a Thai classic, and since I visited a floating market in Bangkok and found a genuine old fashioned clay khanon-krok pot, it would be a perfect time to revisit the recipe trying out my new pot. It was an experience, and if appreciating the values of non-stick pans is a good thing, then it was a good experience! This pot is charcoal fired, so the first step is to get it lit and hot. Since this is clay it's going to take a lot of seasoning with oil, and sure enough as I try to season it, it soaks the oil in like a sponge. Khanon Krok is two layers, a starchy layer that forms the…

The hazelnut or almond flour gives the cookie a extraordinary richy, nutty flavor throughout the cookie, without having chunks of nuts interrupting the smooth, gooey, velvety chocolate chip cookie experience. Big chocolate chunks throughout cookie, crisp and browned on bottoms, soft and tender in the center. I first met Dorie Greenspan in a middle of bland lunch buffet at a food conference.

  • Frizzy Pork Hair Sandwich ( Sandwich Mu Yong )

    26 Jun 2014 | 6:49 am
    This is one of the uses for frizzy pork hair. We eat it as breakfast food with coffee. The pork hair (really dried pork meat rubbed into fine strands) has a very salty savoury taste and rough texture and the condensed milk is very sweet and has a sticky texture and the two together balance each other out. This is probably one of the simplest Thai dishes to make.
  • Fried Pork Garlic Sandwiches ( Kanom-Pan Na Mu Tod )

    23 Jun 2014 | 11:06 am
    These deep fried pork sandwiches are also great as an appetizer or snack, the only downside is the amount of fat in this dish. Not suprisingly the bread soaks up some of the cooking oil and so its best to only eat these as a treat or as a small part of a larger meal.

    Kyoto Foodie: Where and what to eat in Kyoto

  • Kyoto Restaurant Recommendation: Shiawase Gohan (Happy Meal)

    Kyoto Foodie
    31 Dec 2014 | 7:01 am
    This is a guest post from one of my clients: Takaokaya. Takaokaya has been making beautifully handcrafted bedding and cushions in Kyoto since 1919.  Third generation proprietor, Koichi Takaoka is going to tell us about one of his favorite Kyoto restaurants: Shiawase Gohan. Takaoka-san says: Shiawase Gohan (幸せごはん) means happy meal, or happy food. Shiawase Gohan opened about three years ago and owner chef, Nakamura-san, I have known for about 15 years. He was chef at a restaurant a friend introduced me to. I went there for many years and then when he moved onto a new restaurant I…

    7 Dec 2013 | 8:39 am
    Well, well, well. If it isn’t a new KyotoFoodie article! And what have I cooked up for you foodies? Donabe Genmai Shake Gohan: grilled salmon cooked with rice, in Kyoto-style dashi broth, of course, in a special clay nabe pot made especially for cooking rice. The rice is served ‘donburi’ style — in a big bowl, garnished with fresh green shiso leaves, heaps of ikura salmon roe and a slab of butter. This dish is lip-smackingly delicious and, very importantly, is something you can probably obtain the necessary ingredients for even if you are not in Japan. Donabe Genmai Shake Gohan…
  • Snacking on the Nakasendo

    4 Dec 2013 | 11:41 pm
    The Nakasendo (literally “The Way through the Mountains”) is an ancient highway that linked the cities of Kyoto and Tokyo. Dating back to the 7th century, the route was used at its peak during the Edo Period (1600-1868), as one of the Five Highways (“Gokaido”) designated by the Tokugawa shogunate. The advent of modernization in Japan starting with the Meiji Restoration meant that this ancient route became disused, with parts purposefully removed — including some of the honjin inns where the feudal lords stayed — as vestiges of a backward, draconian regime. Walk Japan, however,…
  • Kyoto Restaurant ‘Hatakaku’ – Botan Nabe (Wild Boar Hotpot)

    Kyoto Foodie
    24 Feb 2013 | 6:33 am
    Botan Nabe, or wild boar nabe ‘hotpot’, is a dish commonly found in cold, rural, mountainous regions of Japan today. It may surprise you to learn, however, that it was in fact invented in Kyoto by the founder of Hatakaku, a restaurant founded nearly 100 years ago, located just north of the Imperial Palace. Botan Nabe I have been meaning to introduce this restaurant and this special dish to winter visitors to Kyoto for some time, but was lacking the photographs to do this beautiful and delicious cuisine justice. The other day, however, Kyoto photographer, Kosuke Okuda and I went to…

(Her occupation was that of a typist, she worked long before word processors and computers became commonplace in the office.) Lil was my maternal grandmother and she died suddenly this morning at the ripe old age of 95. The last time I saw her, in the middle of the cold Minnesota winter, she was still going for a walk everyday. Wow, now that is healthy!

  • Another Copycat, This Time in L.A.

    20 Jan 2015 | 4:20 am
    Soon after Vatos Urban Tacos opened and became a hit, people from rival restaurants showed up, vigorously taking pictures of each detail for “research” and “benchmarking,” business Konglish for “straight up ripping off and copying.” A few months later, dishes that never existed on Korea’s shores until Vatos made them magically appeared in other restaurants around Seoul. That’s to be expected in the industry with a successful restaurant, especially in Korea, where copying can sometimes be considered a cunning skill rather than shameful theft.

I saw this at Home Plus. Mr. Beaks Premium Chili Paste Lamb Bulgogi. Out of the package, it’s straight up bulgogi. Just thinly sliced meat and marinade. No vegetables. I coulda added some onions and carrots, but… NAH… It was easy to fry up, but I didn’t need to add oil to the pan. This was much greasier than its beef and pork counterparts. I had to drain the pan twice. Too bad…

  • New Menu at Craftworks Euljiro–PLUS Free Beer for YOU!

    6 Jan 2015 | 4:07 pm
    We all know Craftworks. But have you been to the Euljiro location in north Seoul? It’s in the basement of the Pine Avenue Building outside Euljiro 3-ga Station, exit  12 (map at the bottom of the post). I was invited by them to check out this new menu that only this location is experimenting with. They also had the Pumpkin Spice IPA available, so I indulged myself with that as well. Having worked in a brewpub before, the secret to success, other than good beer, is to have food that matches the beer. It shouldn’t be too pretentious. It should honestly have a certain level of…

  • A birthday in Mae Hong Son

    19 Jan 2015 | 9:02 pm
    “We don’t know what day she was born — they didn’t keep track of that stuff back then.” This about Khun Yay — “Grandma” — the mother of my landlord in Mae Hong Son. What is known is that “back then” was 90 years ago, so at some point, somebody chose December 31st, New Year’s Eve, to be Khun Yay’s birthday. An excellent choice, as come this time of year in Mae Hong Son, the sky is inevitably blue and the weather is cool: perfect conditions for a celebration. I’ve mentioned Khun Yay before. Born in Ayuthaya, she…
  • Lim Yuu Hong/ลิ้มหยูฮง

    3 Nov 2014 | 5:23 pm
    It’s no secret that the Thais love noodles. Noodles are some of the most ubiquitous dishes in the country, available on nearly every street corner and in just about every restaurant. And it’s easy to understand why people love them: they’re cheap, satisfying, customisable, and come in a huge variety of shapes and forms, and from a variety of culinary and cultural influences. Yet despite all this, I have to admit that I’ve never been crazy about Thai noodles. I’m a rice man. I’ll almost always opt for a plate over a bowl. And being a fan of savoury, salty,…
  • Friday prayer at Haroon Mosque

    12 Sep 2014 | 1:18 am
    The area surrounding Bangkok’s Haroon Mosque is one of the city’s largest and most traditional Muslim enclaves. The original mosque, a wooden structure, was built back in 1828, but was subsequently torn down, with some of the original wood used in the construction of the current building: Over the decades, a neighbourhood grew around the mosque, one that today is almost exclusively Muslim, densely populated and relatively poor. It’s a pretty sleepy place until Friday prayer, an event that draws local and international Muslims, beggars taking advantage of mosque-goers’…
  • Jiw/จิ๋ว

    6 Sep 2014 | 9:43 pm
    For Muslim food in Bangkok, one of the best areas is lower Th Charoen Krung. Formerly Bangkok’s foreign enclave, today the European-run shipping offices and the Portuguese Catholic community that used to border the Chao Phraya River are long gone. But much of the area’s Muslim community remains, including — thankfully for us — its food. Other parts of Bangkok may have a higher volume of restaurants serving Thai-Muslim dishes, but none can claim this much history. Some restaurants along this stretch of Th Charoen Krung (formerly known as “New Road”), such as…
  • Nyaungshwe’s morning market

    18 Aug 2014 | 6:08 pm
    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,…

It was a combination of delicacy and yummy food.Dinner at Empire City HuaiyangIf you're not too hungry, but have a lot of time and money to spend, this is an ideal place.  Dishes were delicately presented, in relatively small portion however extremely long delivery time.  Going through their menu, the dishes are quite mild, I mean not too spicy, very close to the taste of Hong Kong Cantonese.Sliced Mushroom (HK$75) 蔬衣麻菇 These two starters took only 5 minutes to get onto our table.  But…
  • Mid Autumn Festival - Hong Kong 2014

    9 Sep 2014 | 4:56 am
    I have a day off today as it is the day after Mid Autumn Festival. In tradition, Chinese celebrate the festival in three phases - Welcoming the Moon (August 14th), Admiring the Moon (August 15th) and Chasing the Moon (August 16th).We used to have holiday on the Festival day, ie. 15th, but somehow the former colonial government said people admire the moon at night, they can still work in the day.  However people sleep late after admiring the moon, the following day became a holiday. And this has been practicing after the handover through now.The Mid Autumn Festival is all about the moon,…

    This 8-course seafood dinner is very attractive in terms of food and price. Only HK$288 (US$36.9) per person.  It's very delicate, well present and of course very yummy.  Now let see how universal it is.Chilled South Africa Abalone Cantonese believe the best way to eat abalone is to eat it as a whole.  6-head is kind of size reference.  I think it means 6 abalones per catty.  Rarely people eat it chilled, but this one is very well done, al dente and delicious.Italian Balsamic JellyfishJellyfish served with black fungi and cucumber, good combination.  Very…

  • How to Make Gluten-Free Potstickers

    Andrea Nguyen
    22 Jan 2015 | 3:03 pm
    There are many gluten-free and near gluten-free dumplings in the Asian repertory but most people gravitate toward potstickers. I regularly field inquiries about GF dumplings via email and in my Craftsy online Asian dumpling class. I don’t blame people. Who wants to miss out on dumplings? Plus, Chinese pan-fried dumplings are seriously good, with a contrast of crisp bottoms, tender-chewy skins and juicy filling. The filling is easy to make gluten-free (basically, just replace regular soy sauce with one that is wheat-free). The trick is the dough. Potstickers are traditionally made with a…

  • Wine Pairings for Korean Food
    27 Jan 2015 | 3:14 am
    Korean food is notoriously hard to pair with wines, since there are so many different types of flavors in your average Korean meal. And since many of these flavors are intense and the scents aggressive, it can be hard to find a suitable wine for a Korean dinner. The trick is to make your wine decision based on the main dishes of the meal rather than the banchan (side dishes), since the latter will almost always include spicy, sweet, or salty flavors.

    This spicy soup is a forgiving recipe that I make it when I need a quick soup and only have a few ingredients in the fridge. It can take a variety of different vegetables, noodles, and proteins and will still taste good. This recipe calls for Tofu Shirataki noodles, which are low-carb and low calorie Japanese noodles. But if you are not on a low cal diet or lifestyle, you can use other Asian noodles; I like to use Japanese udon or Korean sweet potato noodles.

    Koreans love broiled fish that is either cooked whole or sliced in half and cooked until the skin is crisp and sizzling. Broiling is an easy and mess-free way to make almost any type of fish, and a side dish portion is easily done in the toaster oven on the broil setting. I usually ask the people at the fish counter to remove the spine, head, and tail so that I'm left with two halves of the mackerel with the skin on.

It was the time when ISP used to auto upgrade your bandwidth without you needing to sign a new contract.

Not a bad way to start your shop!East Tokyo has always been in the shadow of the west in terms of ramen, so it is good to see a newcomer making a quality bowl.The ingredients are strictly mukacho, preservative free.This one almost felt more like a toripaitan, a creamy chicken soup ramen, than a tonkotsu, pork soup. The stinky traces of pork bones were non-existent, and the toppings, though uncommon for this kind of ramen, were fresh and tasty. Worthy of their praise.Come in the evening and you can try some of their…

Mega-rich soup with fresh toppings that put regular ramen to shame.This one was recommended by the barbecue master at Hatos Bar, a nearby smokehouse barbecue spot that meat lovers need to know about. Don't tell anyone, but Sou-san, the master, prefers a good bowl of ramen over perfectly cooked ribs. Food is funny that way.The menu is only a couple items; torishiroramen and bejitanmen.

This shop in Nakameguro, though stylish, lacked deep flavors and had no tasty impact. They were lauded as having the best light tasting ramen in town, but now it is just too light.I should note that I tried their winter limited bowl, a miso with smoked meats and ginko nuts.My friend, the writer of a new…
