postheadericon Singapore Curry Noodles

We all know that French Fries weren’t invented in France and similarly Singapore Curry Noodles weren’t invented in Singapore (or so I’ve been told)!  These earthy noodles are a Cantonese creation found all over Hong Kong in night market stalls and it’s a mystery as to how this dish was given its name.   Whatever the [...]

postheadericon Srircha Honey Chicken Wings

I don’t know anyone who doesn’t love Srircha sauce.  With its signature green cap and rooster featured on the bottle, Srircha sauce was named after the coastal city of Si Racha in the Chonburi province of Thailand.  It is a simple paste made with chili peppers, distilled vinegar, garlic, sugar and salt.  It is spicy [...]
