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.

Dry Fried Mee Siam

Popular in Singapore and Malaysia, mee siam (Siamese noodles in Malay) is one dish I can’t get enough of. I’ve always had fond memories of eating plates of vermicelli soaked in a tangy, hot and spicy broth made by mom. Even if I had to go through packets of tissue paper, it was worth it.

Lychee-tini Jelly Shots

This Lychee-tini Jelly Shots has been on my to-make list for quite a while. The original version contains alcohol – using either Cointreau, vodka or martini. Since I’ll be bringing this tray of jelly for a family potluck gathering later, I’m going to go the virgin route and use a can of fizzy Kickapoo Joy Juice instead. This way, my little cousins will get to enjoy them as well without getting into trouble with the parents...
