“Optimum nutritious cooking, with heart, passion & TEFAL Pan”
Oh well…. Now that I am into cooking healthy & tasty restaurant food, that has to do with the cooking demonstration workshop I have attended last Saturday. Thanks to the presenter, Tefal, with the great support of omy.sg.
As you probably know, the cooking workshop took place at Onaka restaurant, or called it the healing kitchen. Onaka, giving an impression that it is a Japanese restaurant, but to its regular diners, it’s already so well known that Onaka restaurant features not only Japanese cuisine, but all healthy & tasty multi-national dishes. And most of the time, the dishes are healthy creations of the chefs.
“Happy Mid-Autumn Festival 2010 – Have you eaten any mooncake yet?”
Chinese Mid-Autumn Festival is tomorrow, but the stores started selling moon cakes since a month ago (some started promoting moon cakes even two months back!). And for a festive food craze like me, I loved moon cakes very much! So, I have been eating at least 1 mini moon cake or half the normal sized cake every other day for the past 1 month!
I loved moon cake.. I really do! All kinds of flavors, for both baked and snow skins. No doubt, I would never missed eating any moon cakes in the office which were given by the clients. I bought my own moon cakes in both Singapore and Hong Kong. What are my favorite flavors? Hmm…Traditional lotus paste baked moon cakes, white lotus paste baked, red bean with green tea paste baked, lotus paste with macadamia nuts baked, lotus paste snow skin, custard snow skin, mango snow skin, chestnut snow skin, and tiramisu snow skin, especially, etc…! And nope, I do not mind products from anywhere, both the bakeries and hotels, that’s my answer if this is your next question…
“Two new Parchment Pastas, the true decadence of uniqueness and tenderness for your tastebuds @ Pizza Hut.”
One of my favourite foods is pasta and that’s why I cook pasta pretty often. I enjoyed eating pasta, for indulging in the great eating pleasure out of its simplicity. It’s not limited to just my own pasta cooking, but I loved having great pasta when dine out, too.
Here come the new additions of two fascinating pasta dishes to the huge pasta family on the menus of Pizza Hut restaurant, which will be served, from today, the 25th August! And, it was my honour to be invited by Nuffnang, the Asia Pacific’s first blog advertising community, and Pizza Hut restaurant, to sample these pasta dishes in an elaborate food tasting session organized by Pizza hut’s marketing dept before the launch. This is not only for the purpose of advertorial, but I was long ago a big buff of Pizza Hut food, per se. Hence, getting to know about the new launching, it made me so excited and I was looking forward to seeing how these Parchment Pasta dishes might look and taste like, since they are named, “Parchment”…
“My first not-so-pleasant hot pot dining experience with Peir 88 of Tau Heung branch restaraunts in Hong Kong. Read this now and pick up some tips ad tricks here on how to order your hotpot meal in Hong Kong pleasantly!”
2nd day of my HK ‘return‘ trip, we had ALL-TIME-BEST Dim Sum brunch at the City Hall Maxim’s Palace (大会堂美心皇宮) located at City Hall Low Block 2nd Floor, Hong Kong. I strived to make it a sure-thing to have Dim Sum there again whenever I return for a vacation. I simply loved the Dim Sum here, especially their steaming hot, soft and flowy custard bun with fragrant salted egg yolk, still as nice as a year ago..
“All-time packed authentic road side store which you shouldn’t miss, for their signature fragrant crisped bun and refreshing tomato noodle soup!”
Sheung Wan and Central (上环/ 中环) have so many good eating places including the very famous Lian Xiang Lou (莲香楼), for Dim Sum breakfast, but in fact, were not really impressed by it, frankly. Today, what I am going to post is a true value-for-money local breakfast place, the Hong Kong 大排挡 (road side store) named 胜香园 (Mandarin as: Sheng Xiang Yuan; Cantonese as: Sing Heong Yun).
“This is one of the good meals, if healthy and light soup dish is your No.1 choice, try Sang Kee Fresh Fish Soup Bee Hoon!”
This actually was our very first meal (before having afternoon tea at The Peninsula Hotel) upon arrival, right after settling our accommodation at the nice hotel located at Tin Hau area (location next to Causeway Bay). Yes, we went to Sheung Wan area first after the check-in, not just for this recommended healthy lunch, we had several things to get from this area, too. The best soy sauce from a traditional shop nearby, and boots from a road store selling at very reasonable price as compared to many other places were on my list.
