What’s For Dinner? – A Chinese New Year Eve Meal

Chinese New Year was on Friday February 16th this year. It just happens to coincide with Family Day weekend, which means many of us get to enjoy an extra long weekend off and who doesn’t appreciate that? This year, we had a small intimate family gathering and were blessed enough to have a table bursting…

Chinese New Year – Year of the Dog

It’s scary how time flies. Tonight will be Lunar New Year Eve (also known as Chinese New Year) and we will be bringing in the Year of the Dog. Just like any celebration, that means some good eats are in store! In previous years, I’ve shared what we ate on New Years Eve, what was…

Rendang – A Fiery Indonesian Meal

Sometimes, you just need a meal that you know is going to blow your taste buds away. Rendang is just one of those types of dishes and it’s a classic Indonesian dish. This delicious, but fiery coconut milk based-stew can be prepared with different types of meat, like beef, lamb or chicken. Beef is probably…

Turon – Banana Lumpia

I’ve had deep fried bananas battered with panko crumbs, bananas inside baked goods like bread or muffins, and fresh bananas on their own, but it was only this year that I tried something called banana lumpia.  Lumpia is essentially a spring roll and is typically filled with meat and/or veggies. Although I’m more familiar with…

Food Subscriptions – A Box From Japan

Online subscriptions have been all the rage for quite some time. Whether it be a monthly subscription for tea lovers, a subscription to have handpicked ingredients delivered to your door, or even a mishmash of unique snacks from around the world, if there’s something you’re looking for it probably exists.

What the Offal?

Today is Halloween. Although I didn’t get a chance to carve out a pumpkin this year, let alone visit a pumpkin patch, I think a festive way to get into the mood is through food. I’m not talking about all the candies, chips, and chocolate bars, but by eating things that scare the majority. Brains?…

Laksa Lemak – Hot! Hot! Hot!

If you love spicy food, you will probably love laksa. It’s a type of Malaysian dish that consists of a hot, aromatic broth (sometimes known as gravy) that is served with noodles, meats, and veggies.

Mid-Autumn Festival

It’s that time of the year again when summer starts to wane and fall arrives. Today is special though because it’s the Mid-Autumn Festival! Although my family doesn’t really have any special meals or big parties for this occasion, it’s a time to look forward to moon cakes! A majority of people celebrate the Mid-Autumn…

E-Fu Noodles/Yee Mein (Recipe)

I have mentioned before that one of my most favourite noodles in the world is e-fu noodles, which are also known as yee mein. These long, stringy noodles aren’t hard to prepare and the best part is they absorb flavours like a sponge. Today I’m sharing an easy recipe for this dish. The ingredients are…

Winter Melon Soup (Recipe)

I was pretty disturbed when I first came to the realization that the price of buying groceries is almost equivalent to the amount of money you spend at a restaurant or on catering. The only difference between the former and the latter is convenience and healthiness. I guess I can understand why some people don’t…

A Three Day Wedding

Have you ever been to a three day ceremony wedding before? Let alone experienced a three day Indian wedding? My friend recently got married and it was quite the experience. Each ceremony was different from the other, but being Yes! All Roads Lead to Food, it’s all about the journey of food too! First was…

A Sanjeet Celebration

I have been calling it a “san-jeet”, but it’s really called a “san-geet”. My first reaction was panic. What’s a sanjeet?!?! I was invited to one because one of my old classmates is getting married. As a first timer, here’s what I discovered. First, I walked into a room that was decorated with low lighting,…
