Teriyaki chicken

Good teriyaki is when you get that sticky, brown and sweet meat. Nice fluffy rice to serve and some steamed greens to balance the sweet and savory. I like to add my teriyaki sauce slowly in the cooking process, so I don`t get to burn it and have it bitter. It takes a bit longer,…

Sweet and sour chicken

The Oh-so- good sweet and sour chicken. A dish that taste different every time you order it from the take away place. Its crunchy, fresh, tangy and just too good on a weekday evening. The original recipe I follow was from Marion`s kitchen – as she is probably my favourite Asian recipes cook. I changed…

Chili oil

Cold soba noodles salad with steak

In this dish I combined my daughters favourites veggies- red cabbage, carrots and peppers. She also loves pasta, so noodles worked great. It`s hard to imagine serving this to a 2 year old, but she love it every time I cook this. You can keep it vegan by skipping the steak, or add rotisserie chicken…

Veggie coconut curry

Having a good curry for dinner is the most satisfying thing after a long day. With this recipe I went totally vegan as I was curious for the result. I had no idea what a veggie curry could look like, until I went to the shop and found fresh sweet corn, fresh peas and it…

Edamame soba noodles

This recipe is as green as it gets. If you are looking for a booster for lunch, this is the right one. Cook for dinner and pack it for lunch as a salad- it will be equally delicious. In my opinion this is much better than the take out we get around here, as they…

Ginger miso noodle soup

You might noticed that I am a fan of a good Asian soup. The key is always to have a good and flavourful stock. If you have a look on my prevous post you will see a great and quick recipe for your own chicken stock. Give it a go and try this warm miso…

Seafood and chicken ramen

As you would assume after my short visit to Singapore I had to introduce an Asian recipe. I really liked the local laksa- coconut soup with sea food and noodles. However I want to make it authentic as possible and for this I need to prepare two different chili and shrimp pastes. Till I find…

48 hours in Singapore

To fall in love in this city is the easiest thing ever. I`ve been waiting for this trip for too long and when a business trip came up I was over the moon. For those who know me is not a secret that I growth ┬álove to Dubai from day one here. Living in the…
