I was given a treat by John Lim and Martin last week and had this fantastic dish of XO Beehoon at Ban Hwa Seafood, a cze char stall in Geylang Lor. 17. It was so good I had to replicate the recipe so my family can enjoy this dish at home. Below is my BanHwa-inspired … Continue reading

Haemul Pajeon Recipe (해물파전레시피) – Korean Seafood Green Onion Pancakes

Haemul Pajeon (해물파전) is a popular seafood scallion pancake in Korean cuisine. “Haemul” means seafood, “Pa” means scallion/green onions, and “jeon” means pan-fried battered food or loosely translated as pancake. Although it’s official name is “seafood scallion pancake”, beef, pork, kimchi, shellfish, and other seafood are also commonly used. Although I have titled this as … Continue reading

Simple Guacamole Recipe

Being stuck in the kitchen with your loved ones really can be (it is, for my family) a great way to bond! While I was slicing and chopping, Valerie assembled the bits and shreds I had prepared.

Ministry Of Rojak By Abdhus Salam Rojak

We had Penang food for lunch that afternoon and looking around, I was amused by a signboard “Ministry of Rojak”. I had thought the shop to be selling music CDs (somehow the name brought to mind, Ministry of Sound) or different types of salad since rojak, to me, means “chap pa lang” (a bit of … Continue reading

Gin Khao – Thai Street Delights And More!

Some eat to live but I live love to eat 😉 Our transcultural * greetings of “Jiak ba buay?”, “Sik bao mei?”, “Sudah makan?” or “吃包沒?” meaning “Have you eaten?” takes the place of the conventional “How are you?” That’s says quite a lot about us, doesn’t it? “Dining out in Singapore is more than … Continue reading
