Instant Pot Taiwanese Beef Noodle Soup Recipe

Taiwanese Beef Noodle soup is one of my absolute favourite dishes to eat.  The soup is always so hearty and I love the pickled mustard that goes along with it. Now I’ve always assumed that this noodle soup is super complicated and takes a long time to make (HOW many ingredients do I need to […]

Chinatown BBQ - Roast Pork & Duck Combo Plate

Chinatown BBQ Vancouver

It had been forever since I’ve had Cantonese barbequed crispy pork and roast duck ever since my parents and I moved out of Richmond.  I had a craving for it so took DaddyO out for lunch and he suggested Chinatown BBQ in…well, Chinatown! My parents regularly pick up roast pork or roast duck from this […]

Old Xian's Food

Old Xian’s Food 老西安厨娘子

UPDATE:  This location has closed. We had passed by Old Xian’s Food many times when AngryRussian has softball and every time I had wanted to go.  I finally got the chance when I had a huge noodle craving one night and we made the out-of-the-way drive to the Kingsway location. Old Xian shares a small parking […]

Mr. Chili Noodle House Hot & Sour Potato Vermicelli

Mr. Chili Noodle House

The other day I was channeling the mantra of “Do one thing a day that scares you”. I decided to get a AXKA voucher for a meal for one to Mr Chili Noodle House and headed there for a lunch date with myself. With the voucher ($9.99) you get to pick from 3 noodle dishes, […]

Private Home Chinese Cuisine 一点心意

Update:  This restaurant is closed. Having moved out of Richmond for a while now, I must admit, I really miss the quality and quantity of good Asian restaurants within the city.  Now, when I want good Shanghai or Szechuan food, I have to drive across the bridge to get it and time my way back […]

Macau Cafe at Parker Place 澳門街

Once in a while, I get a hankering for some good old Hong Kong comfort food.  These foods come in the form of fried noodles, congee, baked spaghetti, etc., just a smorgasbord of items all accompanied by ice-cold Hong Kong style milk tea, coffee, or a mix of both (a wonderful invention from my culture).  […]

Wild Rice – The Good, The Bad, and The Meh

Wendy’s been spending a bit of time down at the River Market at New Westminster Quay, and with me not having been at all yet we decided to go for dinner at Wild Rice.  I vaguely remembered having heard good things about Wild Rice restaurant, and I know it serves fairly healthy food, so it […]

Little Garden Chinese Cuisine 十里香 -Bellevue, WA

Many times when I visit Aunt Aggy and Uncle Walken in the States, they take me to new restaurants they’ve discovered.  This time, they took mom and I to Little Garden, a mixed Chinese restaurant in Bellevue.  I say “mixed” because they offer Shanghai style, Hunan style, Szechuan style; all different styles of Chinese food. […]

Beggar’s Chicken @ Suhang Restaurant 蘇杭人家

Going way, way back to our Mid-Autumn Festival family celebration, Hitman and I had dinner with my parents and relatives at Suhang Restaurant. It was his first time for Shanghainese food. The draw for me was that my uncle had pre-ordered the Beggar’s Chicken and I was excited to see and try it.  I hadn’t […]
