Fresh Clams and Mallow Squash Soup (鲜蛤角瓜汤)

“Still clams, still soupy.. And now with mallow squash. Delectable and low in fat, this soup dish is also easy to be assembled at home!”

Seafood and mallow soup dish. Not quite a soup, but more like a soupy dish. Don’t understand what I mean? Ok, let me explain… This recipe was supposedly a moist (but not wet) barbequed dish, but I added with some water to make it a soupy dish. I did not add too much water, just half the amount of the usual soup cooking’s, just to make it more soupy, that’s all.. That’s why I called it a soupy dish instead of soup dish. More

Century Egg and Coriander Soup (皮蛋芫荽汤)


“One of a kind delicious soup dish. Apparently, this soup is very popular as Hotpot soup base, esp in Hong Kong.”

You might hate eating food with coriander, and also find it weird and unimaginable to have century eggs cooked in soup… but that’s not the case in this soup dish.. Such combination in my soup might sound unappealing but it was indeed very aromatic and delicious to consume.  And don’t be surprised, this was one of the most popular options of hot pot soup base in many restaurants in Hong Kong. I was initially in doubt with such soup option, too, but looking at so many of the reviews from those experienced diners, they actually well commented this as hot pot soup base. Hence, I thought it wouldn’t go wrong to go with the choice of majority, esp the locals’ recommendation. So I tried the soup the very first time when I had my hotpot meal in Hong Kong. And, it surprised me pleasantly. It was such a delicious soup with natural aromas and sweetness yielded from the corianders and century eggs in the soup! More

Ginseng Prawn Herbal Soup

“Ginseng Prawn Herbal Soup tasty and healthy”

Ginseng shrimp herbal soup, or we usually called it, Ginseng prawn herbal soup, is not an usual dish. Diners will be more familiar with Ginseng chicken soup and/ or Drunken prawns, but not so the prawns in Ginseng soup though.. Yes, I guessed so. However, it turned out great. Resembling Drunken Prawns, but this has milder flavour, with more soup in the dish. Great taste, great dish great nutritioned soup! More

Steamed Winter Melon and Clams Soup

“Healthy seafood soup dish, loved its subtle and soothing flavour”

Healthy seafood & melon soup which was done with steaming method. Not the usual boiling stuff direct from the stove though, soup made from steaming method yields very smooth mouthfeel. It gives a very soothing effect to the throat and even the entire body. For whom does not really like clams, would love this. Subtly flavoured soup was without a trace of ‘fishy taste’ which usually found in the clams. Not mine! Winter melon in the soup was very soft, too. More
