    I used to lunch at this Vietnamese “fast food restaurant” called Saigon Express. I just love their pork vermicelli. To make the dish even more welcoming to me, they always give me generous amount of daikon and carrot pickles. So when this fast food restaurant closed down, I could no longer find the same pork vermicelli. Hence I decided to make my own pork vermicelli. But to do that, I have to learn to make the daikon and carrot pickles first. To me, that is one of the important ingredient of the pork vermicelli.

    I kinda of love Tokyo Chicken Stew from Soup Spoon and hence I hope to replicate it in my own kitchen. To make it a fuller meal, as compared to just drinking the stew, I decided to add some kuay teow (i.e. broad kind of noodle). But if you like to just have the stew, it makes a good warming dish as well. Nice to have it during rainy and cold days.

    Personally, I find that stir fry basil chicken rice with fried egg can fill my stomach easily. I can just have this and I will feel very satisfied. Chicken, egg, rice and some vegetable (basil) seem like a balanced meal to me! I always like to prepare simple meal and this dish can be easily prepared within 30 minutes. If you want a fast, quick and nutritious meal, you can try this one!

    I saw a Taiwanese variety show which introduced this dish. That sparked my interest. My kid loved mee suay and hope he will like a different taste of mee suay. After I googled in the net, I found that this dish is a very authentic Taiwanese food. The ingredients used are very simple and easy to obtain. It just takes me around 20 minutes to cook the whole dish.

    I have seen many posts on how easy it was to make roast pork at home, using airfryer. I never dare to try it as it seems to be a lot of work! Well, it is. But the steps are actually quite simple, just that you need more time to prepare the meat. The rest of the work? Just leave it to the air fryer! And the final product was really crispy and it was unlike what we bought from the restaurant/food stall. It really worth my effort when I saw my hubby enjoying it! 🙂
