Malaysian Pork & Cauliflower Curry

I know Malaysian dishes are not synonymous to pork as their cuisine is predominantly Muslim inspired but in Kuala Lumpur there are a lot of Chinese Malaysians that introduces a hybrid between the Chinese and Muslim cuisine, our dish is one of them.  If you visit some Chinese food stalls in...

Hokka Hokka (Brisbane, Australia)

Design your own noodle! Whoever created this should be given an award, this is brilliant one of the amazing creations of the century. Perhaps I am over reacting, but I really liked this concept and it was the first time I heard of this and it was in Hokka Hokka...

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)

Traditionally the stock is made with a fish-based gravy but modern versions like this Chicken Curry Laska recipe today is...

Ayam Bakar

After our trip to Bali I was inspired to cook Balinese and/or Indonesian dishes as most of what we tried there was down to earth rustic delicious dishes that you can prepare on a daily basis at home. One of those dishes is this Ayam Bakar, basically an Indonesian or...

Satay Beef

Before you react yes, I know this is not your usual satay beef, this is more of a satay beef inspired stir fry and not your usual skewered beef. As you will notice I love sauces and for our recipe today we will be making a saucy Satay beef stir...

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...
