    I used to have this vermicelli in Miss Saigon (a restaurant which was closed down.. Sadly) I love the sauce and the pork, which I cannot find the right taste anywhere now in any restaurant. So I decide to try make the same dish with the same taste. But of course, while it doesn’t taste the same as the one made in Miss Saigon, I do enjoy this vermicelli.

    My boy is always a picky kid when it comes to having a meal. The only type of dish he is willing to finish it all is soupy macaroni. So how to ensure he has all the nutrients when he refuses to eat meat and vegetable as well? I have to make sure all the nutrients he required is in the soup. So each time I will cook many different types of soup and freeze enough for the weekend. When it comes to vegetable soup, I will simply cook the soup with whatever ingredients I can find in my fridge.

    Previously I made the Hong Kong soy sauce chicken noodle and kept the sauce in my freezer. My hubby missed the Taiwanese braised duck wings (from the local famous 老天禄) And hence I tried to “curb” his cravings by making the braised duck wings for him, hoping they tasted the same. Of course, my braised sauce cannot compare to the one used by this traditional shop, but nevertheless it was still delicious. Not very time consuming, if you happened to have kept the braised sauce. You may wish to start cooking the braised sauce from scratch too.. 🙂

    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.
