Just when I run out of idea on how to cook salmon in more ways, I chanced upon a fellow Instagrammer with a beautiful salmon dish post. Turns out he adapted the recipe from Nigella (Nigella Express). So I googled the recipe, tried it andddd loved it! The best part about this dish is that it’s simple, quick and easy. Perfect for working and busy people or lazy people like me.
When I went to Formosa Chang in Taipei late last year, I bought one each of their pre-packed braised pork sauce and chicken sauce. As much as I wanted to try them once I got home from the trip, I told myself to be patient. So I chuck ’em at a corner in the fridge until the right time comes (=early this month).
After procrastinating for so long, I’ve finally made sigeumchi namul 시금치나물 (Korean spinach side dish) at home. Can’t believe how easy it is! Sigemuchi 시금치 means spinach while namul 나물 means seasoned vegetable. Sigeumchi namul is a regular banchan serves in many Korean restaurants. In fact this spinach side dish is a norm in many Korean household. You will almost always find sigeumchi namul in bibimbap. They’re great in kimbap too.
Anyone heard about or have participated in Le Bread Days’ salted egg yolk croissant craze + war few months back? I chanced upon this sounds-amazing salted egg yolk croissant few weeks ago when I was browsing through Instagram. Instantly captivated I was but act upon it I did not because I was nowhere near SS2. 😜
As a corn fanatic, I’ll try as many ways I can to enjoy them. This steamed sweet corn with paprika mayo sauce is one of my favorite. I’ve made this many times. Even my sis agrees with me and went on and make some for herself. If you’re looking for a new way to snack on corns, try this simple and easy recipe. 😉
We spent the last night of our Taiwan trip (day 5) at Ximending, Taipei. This place reminds me of Myeongdong in Seoul. It’s mainly a stomping ground for the young generations and tourist. There are plenty to see, shop and eat in Ximending 西門町. To get to Ximending, take the MRT to Ximen station (exit 6).
The first thing I check out was the mee suah from Ay-Chung Flour-Rice Noodle 阿宗麵線 (pronounce as ah-zhong-mian-xian). I’ve seen lots of blogs talking about Ay-Chung and always wonder whether it’s as good as people said.
As soon as we near the shop, we can see how popular this eatery is. There are practically 3 groups of people here; those that queue at the long but fast moving line, those that stand scattered around eating their mee sua and those that stop to see what the fuss this is about or just wanna pass through.
