Burmese Semolina Cake (Shwegyi Sanwei Makin) is rich, moist, subtly sweet. A mouthwatering South-East Asian dessert with hints of coconut.
It’s been a while now since our wanders through Burma/Myanmar.
We had our first taste of Burmese culture and cuisine in Yangon, the country’s former capital, staying in a tiny windowless guesthouse in the heart of the city’s Chinatown district.
At the time, it all seemed like an overwhelming hubbub of new experiences, sights, sounds, and smells.
Vietnamese Sweet and Sour Fried Wontons are a super delicious appetiser or snack that look super impressive but are super simple to make.
Sometimes, when it comes to dinner, one dish just isn’t enough.
Heck, sometimes one location for dinner isn’t enough.
And so, one hot and buzzing night in the port town of Hoi An, Vietnam, we decided a roaming dinner was the order of the
day, err… night, and discovered a beloved local delicacy: Crispy, tasty and super moreish Vietnamese Fried Wontons.
Our lives have never been the same since, really.
Hailing from the mysterious countryside of Laos, Pumpkin Coconut Custard is pure sweet comfort food, Asian style. Soft, moist pumpkin is filled with creamy coconut custard then baked into sweet dessert deliciousness.
Okay so I’m gonna straight up level with you.
We’d actually planned to share a different recipe today.
But you know what? To be totally honest, neither of us was feeling it.
We didn’t have that fire in our guts to share it with you – now, now NOW – the way we normally do.
And we think you deserve better than that.
The cure for what ails you is a satisfied tummy, and there’s no tastier way to do that than with this Simple Malaysian Mee Goreng. This classic South East Asian fried noodle dish is drizzled in a mix of sweet soy sauce, sriracha chilli, and sesame oil for a flavour explosion that’ll have you licking your plate clean.
We had our first life-changing mouthful of Malaysian Mee Goreng (fried noodles) at a tiny little restaurant in Kuala Lumpur earlier this year, and I’ve been craving to make a batch at home ever since.
And now I finally got my chance! Big thanks to our awesome housemate for the inspo to share. 😀
These sweet + salty + spicy Malaysian noodles burst with a simple blend of South East Asian flavours that are so addictive you won’t want to stop.
Not sure about Sarah, but I could happily eat these noodles for breakfast, lunch and dinner and call it a good day.
Indonesian Curry with Fish (Kari Ikan). Creamy coconut, tangy lemongrass and tender white fish in a vibrant yellow Indonesian curry sauce. Delicately spiced and gorgeously aromatic, this is the winter curry winner in our books!
Waaah. How did life become so busy? It feels like weekdays slip through our fingers and weekends come and go in the blink of an eye.
And we don’t like it! 😛
We’ve been so busy lately that we’re even struggling to find time to cook, which is REALLY SAD for a couple of food addicted bloggers.
So how do we keep our schedules running and our tummies full at the same time?
