We had delicious Korean food (Soondubu and seafood pancake) at Jang Su Jang in Santa Clara the other day and brought home the only food that was left - rice.

As there was just about one serving of leftover rice, the best way to go was to bulk it up, make fried rice and turn it to almost two servings (Read more...)

Monday, February 24th, 2014

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

Compared to other dishes such as Laska, Chicken Rice, Char Kway Teow (Fried Flat Rice Noodles), Fried Hokkien Noodles, Bak Chor Noodles (Minced Meat Noodles), Nasi Lemak, it seems that Mee Siam has somehow lost its place in the fight for famous street food.

Buckwheat Noodles in Squash Sauce 小南瓜酱汁荞麦面

Tuesday, January 21st, 2014

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

Kabocha squash thickens up sauces really well, especially after the squash has been cooked through and thorough.

This makes a savory sauce (Read more...)
