Seafood Bee Hoon Recipe

Or should I call it Japchae-style seafood noodles? I drew inspiration from Japchae (a Korean stir-fry dish of sweet potato noodles or ‘dangmyeon’ and vegetables) and combined it with rice vermicelli (‘bee hoon’) to create this wet seafood bee hoon. It’s my rendition of the famous Sembawang white bee hoon with a Korean touch ๐Ÿ˜‰ […]

Chinese Braised Chicken Recipe

A Chinese braised dish is what I call the epitome of traditional Teochew home cooking. It’s like one of the classics that every Teochew family would know how to make. If you’ve been following my blog since its early days, you’d notice the first recipe I shared was a Tau Yu Bak Recipe (Braised Pork […]

Teochew Style Yam Rice Recipe

The last time I had yam rice was at my mum’s when she ‘anyhow’ made up one without a specific recipe in mind. That was just one of the very few occasions I would have dinner at her home since I got married because when she did cook, she didn’t seem to know how to […]

Steamed Chicken Recipe (with Ginger)

Those who have tried my Rice Cooker Chicken Claypot Rice Recipe might find the taste of this dish somewhat familiar because that was where I extracted the idea of doing this steamed chicken by using a similar seasoning sauce – one that’s rich, salty, savoury and sweet with a touch of zing from fresh ginger […]

Sweet and Sour Chicken Recipe with Lychees

“Tis the season to be jolly, Fa la la la la, la la la la. China lychees are here finally, Fa la la la la, la la la la.” Ok I’m not celebrating any festive season, lol but I’m just thrilled that my favourite fruit is in season again.ย Lychee is such a wonderful tropical fruit […]

Spring Onion Pancake Recipe (with my home-grown spring onions)

Watching my tomato and chilli seeds sprouting and growing up everyday for the last few months has been quite phenomenal because it just feels like I’m bringing up little kids, haha. Due to the inadequate conditions of my make-do ‘concrete gardening plot’ at the lift lobby outside my apartment, my tomato and chilli seem to […]

Cabbage and Pumpkin Rice Recipe

As we all know, rice is a staple in Chinese cuisine. While I don’t think rice tastes good on its own because it’s just plain and bland, it does pair beautifully with dishes that come with rich, savoury gravies or sauces. Also I like its versatility when it comes to cooking because there are endless […]

Crispy Roast Pork Recipe ่„†็šฎ็ƒง่‚‰

Ever since I started making my own roast pork at home, I no longer buy or eat those from roast meat stalls. Sometimes, the outside ones might have a higher ratio of fat to meat, could be too salty or cold and soggy because it was left hanging out for too long. Like freshly baked […]

Fermented Beancurd Chicken with Lotus Root Recipe

Besides being an excellent condiment with plain rice congee, fermented beancurd is also one of my favourite cooking ingredients. It is what I call the Chinese version of cheese as it has this salty and mildly sweet flavour (from the pickling liquid) that really makes food taste more robust and appetising. I had made a […]

Coca-Cola Chicken Recipe

I love coke! I love it when I was little and I still love it now though I haven’t had it for a long time due to diet restrictions. And it is just amazing how coke makes a great sauce for meats. I have cooked Coca Cola Pork Ribs before but I think chicken is […]

Seafood Rice Recipe

The look of this dish is a little similar to our local Seafood Mui Fan (ๆตท้ฒœ็ƒฉ้ฅญ or rice with seafood & gravy) that we can get from zi char stalls here. But in terms of ingredients, this dish is somewhat unique as I’ve used crunchy bamboo shoots and black fungus. Taste wise, it also has […]

Pork Shoulder with Salted Fish, Lotus Root and Braised Peanuts Recipe

Normally when we have Teochew porridge, we would eat plain rice congee with a variety of savoury dishes like fried salted fish, braised peanuts, salted vegetables, taucheo (fermented soy bean) pork – all served separately. This recipe is like a 3-in-1 dish that combines pork, braised peanuts and salted fish. It might seem like an […]

Stir Fried Pork with Crispy Yam Recipe

I bought a few lovely yams from the supermarket and ended up making a yam feast of claypot seafood with yam, yam rice, yam paste dessert and this, lol. I liked the texture and flavour of the crispy yam sticks that really reminded me of the potato sticks snack that I used to eat when […]
