Looking for local flavor in Hong Kong? This old-time Cha Chaan Teng, 科記 (For Kee), spot-on. Though the name suggested that it’s a restaurant, but the fact that this seemingly dated quaint store served great Cha Chaan Teng menu.
Located in Sheung Wan district, For Kee is situated just at the corner down the street. As it is a less tourisy spot, so you might need some navigation to get there. Yes, an eatery patronizes mainly by the locals.
“It’s our ritual to cook this chicken chop for Christmas, I would still add a twist to my already-good recipe.”
Chicken chop for this Christmas Eve was a little bit simpler and quicker to cook as I was out to run errand urgently the whole day. Only managed to fix the meal the last minute, I had to whip up our dinner within an hour. And, this is what I had here.
It was real quick and simple to cook this chicken chop, all I had to do was to get all the ingredients from supermarket first. Making mashed Kudzu root was my first attempt to create something new in place of potato.

“A nostalgic home cooked dish, my grandma used to cook it so often during my childhood. And now, I cook this with healthy hacks and turn it into my weigh loss recipe! Weight loss? Read on and you will know why.”
This has to be one of my regular dishes during my dieting period. Cabbage, somewhat contains substances which aid in slimming, whilst glass noodle is flavorful, yet, counting lower in calorie as compared to other types of noodle.
Since I said my cooking was a dish meant to be incorporated into my dieting program, I have to adapt Grandma’s cooking into my own recipe, in a healthier way.
“It’s always known as the childhood dish cooked by grandma…..”
One of the regular Asian dishes often cooked by grandma back in our childhood days. It’s nothing fanciful, and almost every household knows how to make this. However, this simple pork dish carries most memorable childhood moments as well as the home-feel taste for most people.
I would cook this once in a while, simple reason, it goes just so well with a plate of hot steamed rice! And, it’s just too simple to cook!
Yes, having on diet to shed away the final round of my baby weight for the past few months, I learnt to eat low carb food. This is one of the dishes I have learnt to make, to replace high carb ingredients, once in awhile.
You may call this a “toast”, “pancake”, or “Rosti”. It’s made of mashed cauliflower as its main. I liked it a lot as it’s just yummy and doesn’t taste like vegetable. Even my toddler son ate it. To me, it resembled a cheesy pancake meal. :)
