Century Egg and Lean Pork Congee

I am sick and congee is the best choice.

Black Glutinuos Rice Porridge

Chinese food therapy believes that black glutinuos rice(or black sticky rice) is good for kidney. In fact, most of the cantonese tong sui is believed to have certain medicinal effects. But unlike some of the bitter chinese medicines, these desserts are so sweet and nourishing that it's hard for me I to link them together with medicine. I always like to have one bowl for evening break or supper.

How can one resist a bowl of black glutinuos rice porridge served with thick coconut milk?

When Taiwan and Hong Kong meet

This is a very famous snack in taiwan night market. The chicken cube was marinated overnight, coated with cream crackers and then fried together with fresh Sweet Basil leaves. Yes, the secret of this dish were the Basil leaves. It gave a very unique fragrant to the fried chicken.

What about a cup of hong kong honey lemon drink after the fried chicken? Lemon has vitamin C and honey has many benefits! First, I started with hot honey lemon drink. When I was left with half cup, I added some ice and enjoyed the iced honey lemon drink. And, it was not the end yet. Can you see the lemon slice? I poured some water and had lemon water, few rounds.

Taiwan Fried Chicken with Herb and Hong Kong Honey Lemon drink. Happy gathering.

Fried Rice with Chinese Sausage

Announcement: This is not another dish cooked with left-over ingredients, ok. Even tough it could be, but this time it was my plan. I missed fried rice.

Cooking a plate of fried rice is not difficult, but then cooking a plate of tasty fried rice is not easy too. Most challenging part is the fried rice must be dry but not hard, aromatic but not oily. Serve when it is still piping hot.

Hong Kong Style Steamed Pomfret

This is a very common dish in chinese restaurants. Whenever I serve this steamed fish, I will get very good feedbacks.

Tips sharing:
1. A fresh and fully defrosted fish is a must.
2. Marinate the fish with 1 tbsp of garlic oil and 2 tbsp of soya sauce.
3. Only place the fish after the water is boiled.
4. Do not overcook the fish. Steam it with maximum fire for 8 mins.
5. Garnish with chinese parsley and carot
**** Adjust the seasoning quantity and cooking time according the fish size****

Give it a try and tell me how you like it!

Tuna Mayo Sandwich

I woke up unusually early this morning.
So, I had enough time to make this tuna mayo sandwich.
It is so simple. There is no way one can fail in making this sandwich.
Be it a triangle sandwich or finger sandwich, it tastes as good as it looks.

Durian Rice

I didn't believe that durian and rice are good combination until I tried it.
The best rice is glutinuos rice that mixed with fresh coconut milk and pinch of salt.
