Sweet Potato Rice Donut

Don’t mind me – Korean cuisine has always held an important spot in my heart/tummy and if you read about my jjajangmyeon post last week, you’ll understand my constant craving for K-food.

Gudetama aside, this egg tart recipe adapted from Two Bites and Annielicious Food mimics that of Hong Kong egg tart - a soft flaky crust with smooth creamy custard filling...

I swore some of the ones I had in Chinese restaurants had streaks of red chili oil floating on them. Double mistakes...

Shoyu Tamago (Japanese Soy Sauce Egg)

To all my beloved BNF fans who requested for Shoyu Tamago recipe, this for you. This well-loved hard-boiled egg with a molten, custard yolk is a must-have topping for us whenever we have ramen. I actually prefer a more custard-y yolk rather than the molten type that flows out when you cut into them...
