Pepper up your turmeric-based curries! If you have heard, the alkaloid in black pepper - piperine, significantly enhances turmeric's curcumin bio-availability by as much as 1000% or even more (Source: HealwithFood). The next time you make any turmeric-spiced dish, make sure to give it a few good das (Read more...)

Udon Noodles in Meat Sauce 肉酱乌冬面

Wednesday, November 12th, 2014

This post is a reprint of a post by tigerfish that originally appeared at Teczcape-An Escape to Food.

I recalled my first likeable and impressionable encounter with udon noodles in a Chinese restaurant. You have heard me right - a Chinese eatery, not Japanese. That Stir-Fry Udon Noodles in Black Pepper Sauce was absolutely delicious.


This is not Stir-Fry Udon Noodles in Black Pepper Sauce. However, (Read more...)

Brussel Sprouts, Broccoli, Cabbage Pasta Soup 甘蓝,西兰花,高丽菜汤

Tuesday, November 4th, 2014

This post is a reprint of a post by tigerfish that originally appeared at Teczcape-An Escape to Food.

This bowl of soup is all part of the Brassica oleracea family which includes cabbage, brussel sprouts and broccoli (broccolini to be exact).

If there is only one essential tip to share for making this soup a success, it is to not over-cook the brussel sprouts and baby broccoli when they are added int (Read more...)

Noodles Soup with Cheese 乳酪/芝士汤面

Friday, October 24th, 2014

This post is a reprint of a post by tigerfish that originally appeared at Teczcape-An Escape to Food.

Another advantage of cooking for one is - getting to play around and be bold in mixing and matching ingredients. With some leftover cheese from making pizza, in the cheese goes into the noodles!

Adding a slice of cheese (I prefer Swiss or Cheddar Cheese) into spicy ramen noodles e.g Kimchi Noodles, i (Read more...)

"No-cook" Tomato Sauce 蕃茄拌面/蕃茄意大利面

Monday, October 13th, 2014

This post is a reprint of a post by tigerfish that originally appeared at Teczcape-An Escape to Food.

If heirloom tomatoes were always in their peak, I may just buy them every time, forever. They are naturally plump, juicy and sweet, putting all "industrially-grown" tomatoes to shame. Though we are already into October and seeing less heirloom tomatoes, I am not going to give the last batch of heirl (Read more...)

Kale, Tomatoes, Mushrooms Soup 羽衣甘蓝蕃茄蘑菇清汤

Friday, October 3rd, 2014

This post is a reprint of a post by tigerfish that originally appeared at Teczcape-An Escape to Food.

Of the variety of kale available - do you have a favorite? I don't. I like using baby kale in a super-easy-and-quick stir-fry, red kale in a fruit and vegetable salad, green (curly) or lacinato (dino kale) in soups or stir-fries. Besides kale stir-fries, I am also constantly thinking of new ways to (Read more...)

Asian-Style Rice Vermicelli Bolognese 肉酱米粉

Thursday, August 28th, 2014

This post is a reprint of a post by tigerfish that originally appeared at Teczcape-An Escape to Food.

This dish is unconventional and that thick rice vermicelli stands out as being THE unconventional "pasta" alternative. So this is bolognese with an Asian twist!

Bunashimeji (beech) mushrooms and green onions (instead of herbs) - that's not very authentic bolognese either. Awww...


Whatever. As long as (Read more...)

Easy Vegetarian Fried Rice 蔬菜蛋炒饭

Thursday, August 7th, 2014

This post is a reprint of a post by tigerfish that originally appeared at Teczcape-An Escape to Food.

A bowl of steamed white rice is precious in our home. Not only it is food and that every bit of food should not be wasted, it is also an "ingredient" that is hard to come by as it is not our home's grain-staple.

The only few times we have leftover cooked white rice at home is when there is remaining (Read more...)

Grilled Eel Rice, Unagi Don 鳗鱼饭

Tuesday, July 29th, 2014

This post is a reprint of a post by tigerfish that originally appeared at Teczcape-An Escape to Food.

Not until I saw eel and eel bento being promoted all over on ad flyers of two of my neighborhood Japanese supermarkets, I did not even know the existence of a day Doyo-ushi - a day in Japan that is "dedicated" to eating eel (unagi). Generally, the consumption of eel during hot and humid summer days (Read more...)

Vegetables-Simmered Rice Vermicelli “Stir-Fry" 蔬菜焖米粉

Whenever we visit Singapore, the flight would typically be the wee hours in the morning, flying in from San Francisco. In our most recent April visit, it was an evening flight instead, coincidentally coinciding with late dinner time at my parents'.

Few days before our arrival, I had particularly requ (Read more...)
