J & G Fried Chicken: A Hidden Gem in Crystal Mall Food Court

Have you ever been to the Crystal Mall food court? It is similar to the ones in Aberdeen Centre or Parker Place, except it is in Burnaby, near Metrotown. If not, there is now a reason for you to pay a visit. J & G Fried Chicken originated from Taiwan, opened its first ever location of North American in Vancouver in December 2018. The shop features using fresh and high-quality chicken for all its menu items.

[REVISIT] Hon’s Wonton House (Olympic Village)

Do you remember when was your last time eating at Hon’s Wonton House? My last dining experience with them was when I first came to Vancouver 10 years ago. I still remembered they used to have a huge menu, with almost everything you can possibly name. Recently, I had a chance to revisit Hon’s Wonton House after 10 years, but everything has now changed. The new restaurant, located in Olympic Village, became more modern, with a simpler menu. But one thing remains –  handmade wontons.

[RECIPE] Purple Yam Snow Skin Mooncakes

Mid-Autumn Festival is coming up soon, and my family would buy snow skin mooncakes from local Asian grocery stores. But this year, I decided to make some homemade and healthier ones. Good things about homemade products is that sugar level can always be adjusted, and I can choose natural ingredients to eliminate any preservatives. Using purple yam in desserts and pastries is now a new food trend, as it has a beautiful purple color for pictures, and it has high nutrition, with low calories. Making Purple Yam Snow Skin Mooncakes seems difficult, but it is actually easy and fun, especially when assembling them.
