Egg Tarts (Hong Kong style)

November 26, 2019 1 Comment

Finally. I’ve been wanting to try baking egg tarts for the longest time but was hesitant since baking is not my forte. I eventually plucked up the courage to make them, and it took me 3 tries before I finally made decent-looking egg tarts. A few issues that my egg tarts had for my first two tries were: 1) My …

Fried Prawn & Mango Roll

November 6, 2019 Be first to comment

Fried prawn & mango roll is a dim sum dish that’s really yummy but surprisingly not that commonly found in Singapore (or at least I haven’t seen it around much). I think I’ve only tried it once or twice many years ago but I remember it tasting really good! It’s full of contrasting flavours and textures – savoury yet sweet, …

Regardless of your cooking experience, it’s almost sure to turn out a success – that’s what I really like about making my kueh pie tee! Below is my post …

Campfire Chicken

October 31, 2019 Be first to comment

Wow, I found a dish that requires minimum effort but gives you maximum satisfaction! It’s called Campfire Chicken and it’s apparently quite popular in the States. It’s similar to Crab In Da Bag, except that we’re using chicken instead of crabs. All you really have to do is season whatever ingredients you like with olive oil, butter and spices, wrap …

Cheese Dakgalbi

October 10, 2019 Be first to comment

Dakgalbi is a Korean dish where chicken and vegetables are stir-fried with a spicy and sweet gochujang-based sauce. Top it off with some mozzarella cheese and I guarantee you’re going to love it! It is a really quick and easy dish to make, and seriously yummy too. If you’ve ever eaten at Yoogane, you’d probably have tried dakgalbi before, except …

Cream Puffs

September 25, 2019 Be first to comment

I love cream puffs. Fluffy, airy choux pastry filled with sweet, smooth cream – what’s there not to love? I used to get cream puffs from Beard Papa quite often but nowadays I get them from Chateraise since it’s more accessible and also cheaper. I have been wanting to try making my own cream puffs but since I’m not really …

Cabbage Kimchi

September 18, 2019 Be first to comment

Over the past few days, I’ve been eating so much kimchi that I need to buy a new bottle/packet every 3-4 days. I realised I’ve spent a lot of money on kimchi so I decided to make my own at home. I can’t believe it’s been 2 years since I’ve made my own kimchi! 2 years ago, I made

Sardine Rice Balls Bento

September 16, 2019 Be first to comment

So I haven’t eaten sardine in perhaps 15-20 years because I remember not liking the taste of sardine one bit. To be fair, I’m not a big fan of fish in general other than salmon and saba. But I know that sardines are a great source of nutrients and so I decided to give it a second chance and see …
