Hokkaido Baked Cheese Tart (Auckland CBD, New Zealand)

Let’s start with a little bit of trivia. Where does this cheese tart originated? If Japan is your guess then you’re wrong but don’t worry that was my first guess as well, this brand originated in Malaysia then brought over to Australia and New Zealand but there is still a...

Singgang Daging

No, our post today is not misspelled, it really is Singgang, a dish most probably influenced by our own sinigang. Sinigang, adobo and kilawin are the oldest dishes we had on record, these dishes even pre-dates the Spanish occupation. Filipinos love braising our dishes in something sour with salt, like...

E-One 哥麻辣烫 (Brisbane CBD, Australia)

Salted Egg Prawn

Nowadays you see a lot of Salted Egg used as a flavour on dishes, like crab, chicken, vegetables, waffles, even potato chips and French fries. It’s like the new bacon where you can put it in everything and it will taste even better, just the salty eggy, gritty texture is...

Ikan Bakar

Open food courts in Malaysia is a way of life, when we used to live there, there is no week that passed that we never dined in to one. It’s a great way to eat specially during dinners where everyone is tired and all you want to do at home...
