Cassava Cookies

These Cassava Cookies are definitely one of the star Chinese New Year goodies from Bengawan Solo, a local bakery that all Singaporeans could relate to (I hope). Calories aside, these cookies have a crunchy exterior but melt-in-your-mouth texture which is uniquely addictive. Thanks to the addition of parmesan cheese powder, it lent a hint of savory taste which gave these cookies that unusual sweet + savory taste.

Restaurant Style Salsa Dip

Making this Restaurant-Style Salsa Dip is so ridiculously easy. If you own a food processor or blender, then there’s no reason for you not to make it. Oh, one ingredient below worth mentioning is the can of chipotle peppers in adobo sauce. If you are in living in South East Asia, most likely it is not very common to see that in our local grocery stores or supermarkets...

Daifuku Mochi

Making Daifuku Mochi has always been on my to-do list but somehow, I just did not get round to making it. Until now. I’ve read horror stories about how people burnt their fingers/hands while making these sweet, soft rice balls as you have to knead and roll them into shape while they are still hot. The rice dough will not stick when cooled. Maybe that was one (or the only) factor that was delaying my mochi-making journey...

Malaysia Style Fried Porridge

Recently, there seems to be a craze going on – at least on my social media newsfeed. I’ve been seeing pictures of Fried Porridge 炒粥 shared by my friends almost too frequently. The place to go for this dish in Singapore is apparently at Delicious Coffee Shop located at Macpherson Road. According to sgfoodonfoot, they are probably the only place selling this Malaysia style dish...

15-min Stir Fried Sticky Rice

I’ve always made Chinese glutinous rice using the rice cooker method, cos that’s the beauty of using an electric rice cooker – press start and leave it to work its magic. This 15-min Stir fried Sticky Rice (生炒糯米饭) has been on my to-make list for the longest time and I’m so glad I’ve finally gotten round to making it...

Hong Kong Style Radish Cake

Happy 2016 everyone ! After OVER-indulging in all the sumptuous Christmas and New Year goodies, I’m definitely craving for some Chinese comfort food and this Hong Kong style radish cake (港式蘿蔔糕 Lo Bak Gou) is definitely one mandatory item I would order at any dim sum restaurants. Since Chinese New Year is just a month’s away, I wanted to give this recipe a test and see if it is good enough to include as one of my New Year’s dinner dishes this year...

Oven-Roasted Lady Finger Fries

My love affair with these Oven-Roasted Lady Finger Fries began years ago when I had them at one of my favorite Indian restaurants. I believe they are called Kurkure Bhindi (Spicy Deep Fried Okra). Traditionally, they are coated with spices and deep fried with chickpea flour. While the crispy thin bhindi are super delicious and addictive with every bite, it would be rather sinful to consume it on a regular basis...

Restaurant Review: Terra

Located along a row of shop houses at Tras Street, Terra has been on our eating bucket list for a while. Having read some interesting reviews online, we made a reservation for a Saturday night and headed over in anticipation. After all, Japan and Italian food are two of our favorite cuisines so we were looking forward to how they would be paired together homogeneously...
