Pork Shogayaki and Donburi

I’m just itching to make a lot of Japanese dishes lately, partly to blame were the animes I watched on home cooking. There is not really a plot twist in here and true to anime style, the scenes are always exaggerated and dramatic but the anime really have it down when it comes to making […]

Italian Sausage Soup

I have sort of a love hate relationship with soups that have pasta in it. To me, once you add pasta to a soup it becomes more of a stew because the starch would thicken the broth and suck up all the liquid. I like more liquids than chunks of ingredients. But this soup, I […]

Braised Pork and Potatoes – Mum’s Style

When my mum made this, she did not have a specific name…so we kids called it ‘ho chiak bak’ which means ‘delicious meat’. The one thing which is a must for us with this dish are the hard boiled eggs. Pour the lush, thick gravy over the eggs and eat it with white rice, that […]

Taco Rice (Takoraisu レシピ)

It’s been a long hiatus hasn’t it. A lot had been going on since the end of last year and towards 2016. One major thing that happened was that I got sick, really down physically and it took me like almost 3-4 months to feel normal again.

Eggplant Stir-Fry

I had this dish during my last trip to Cameron and had bought most of the vegetables from there too. At first I thought it an odd combination to have cherry tomatoes and eggplant together but they actually kind of work and taste great. So I when I got home I tried to recreate it […]

Pork Belly Braised in Soy Sauce (Tau Eu Bak)

Initially when I first heard of this dish, I thought to myself, well….sounds rather salty. But I guess it’s not so much the salty type of soy sauce but the dark one that gives it the colour and enhances the braising liquid because dark soy sauce is not as salty as the light one. I’m […]

Baked Pasta with Spinach

  Initially I had not intended to ever blog about this dish….ever! Cos for one, it’s not the most attractive looking dish, and secondly it’s all just put together from scraps here and there that I found in the fridge and was trying to come up with some other baked dishes to do rather than […]

AFF Philippines – Pork Menudo

This dish helped me discover the joys of pork shoulder. So much so it is now one of my favourite cuts. There’s just something about slow cooked meat when it’s done right. The flesh will pull apart without tasting too dry or too soft. When I first saw this recipe, it was labelled a ‘street […]

Kimchi Soup

Wow, it has been a long hiatus hasn’t it? The last two months has been a whirlwind of crazy, what’s more the little ones had a bad stomach flu and was puking literally everywhere and on everything. I had to be careful about what they eat before they could ingest like solid food again. Not […]

AFF Korea – Kimchi Dumplings/ Mandu 김치 만두

Like I mentioned in my previous post, the objective of making all that kimchi was so I could cook up dishes like this! Kimchi dumplings or mandu as it’s called in Korea. I don’t know if calling it mandu means it needs to have a specific shape like rounded tortellinis as is the norm shape […]
