These are the things that I have warm memories of from my childhood. I'm learning to make them as quickly as I can!
Tiny Urban Kitchen: Homemade Chinese Dumplings (jiao zi)
Mochi (Peanut Coconut Filling) 麻糬 - The kind that Hong Kong Low in LA's Chinatown used to make before they closed up shop.
Little Corner of Mine: Mochi (Peanut Coconut Filling) 麻糬
Jian Dui 煎堆 - Sesame seed ball filled with red bean paste -- my childhood Chinese bakery favorite.
Crispy Chinese Roast Pork Belly (Siew Yoke) - OMG... talk about a total guilty pleasure! Such flavorful meat, and so good all by itself! I found some today at a Chinese bakery in Fresno that tasted like the best roast pork I've had in Chinatown. Yum!
Boba -- One of the most refreshing drinks I have EVER had is the honey chrysanthemum boba tea from Ten Ren in the heart of LA's Chinatown. It is a must-have splurge whenever I go.
Five Spice Chinese Pork Stew -- This is one of the newest things that I've been cooking in my kitchen the last couple of months. My mom's recipe is with pork, whole eggs, marinated beancurd, and sponges. It was never eaten as a soup but eaten over white rice.
