Roasted Duck & Century Egg Congee Recipe 烤鸭皮蛋粥食谱

Over the years, I have learnt to appreciate the bone-in, lip smacking, finger licking good Cantonese Roast Duck more than the delicate crepe-wrapped Peking Duck. Whenever there’s leftover from either of the aforementioned duck dishes, I would pack it home to make soup or Hakka-inspired stew out of the carcass, and strip off the fleshy … Continue reading

Whopping Good Time At Wo Peng Cantonese Cuisine 和平宴!

I was pretty excited about the media invite on 7th January 2016 to taste Chef Julian Tam’s Chinese New Year offerings.

Estabelecimento De Comidas King 帝皇樓 (Macau)

The typhoon signal was hoisted and predicted to hit 8-9 when we arrived on Tuesday 13th August 2013. The chauffer warned us that ferry services may stop operation should we want to go to Hong Kong the next day. JJ and I told him we had no such intentions.

Summer Palace Restaurant – Blast From My Past

In a blink of an eye, 14 years gone in between these two photographs. Nothing lasts forever. Forever is a lie. All we have is what’s in between the many “hello” and “goodbye”. While some goodbyes are permanent, some are temporary until we finally kick the bucket 😉 The first photograph showed the ladies group … Continue reading
