Ovaltine Lava French Toast is my new favourite of afternoon tea snacks. When you cut it open, the milk in the middle slowly oozes out. The combination of ovaltine and kinako powder gives a sweet and nutty flavor. I also love the addition of cocoa powder, which creates a hint of bitterness.(more…)
We finally purchased an instant pot a few weeks ago, and I am excited to try making different dishes with it. I noticed that there are many recipes featuring western dishes online, but less on Asian dishes. I decided to make a Hong Kong classic, Red Curry Beef Brisket (紅咖哩炆牛腩). In less than one hour, you can also get a pot of tender, juicy, flavorful beef brisket.(more…)
It is getting warmer in Vancouver, and we all need treats that are lighter and cooler. So I decided to turn one of the popular HK drinks into jelly – Milk Tea & Coffee Jelly Cup, or also known as yuenyeung (鴛鴦) in Cantonese.

A few weeks ago, I made the Cheese Mochi Balls, and I decided to go for a sweet version – Purple Yam Mochi Balls. If you have any leftover purple yam, you can make this delicious and beautiful kid-friendly treat in no time.

Therefore, I decide to come up with an ultimate food guide for you, especially if you have limited budget. This year’s admission is $4.95 per person, with an option to purchase the Express Pass for $28 (include 6 visits). If you are planning to go only once, I prefer just getting the one-time pass. The line up doesn’t seem to have much difference, to be honest.
I was lucky to be invited to a media event, hosted by ChineseBites and Tourism Richmond. I tried 25 stalls in the Richmond Night Market, and I was surprised by this year’s creativity and overall quality of the food. Concluding my two visits to Richmond Night Market, here are the top 10 food items that you should try on your next visit.(more…)
