Nian Gao 年糕 (Chinese New Year's Cake)
Well, besides the festivities and red envelopes (which, by the way, I'm totally still allowed to collect on since I'm unmarried :D).  So what is it?      ...It's nian …

Edamame
Just like how bananas are often thought of as a happy fruit (they're smiley-shaped, afterall!), edamame are like happy, smiley soybeans!  It's hard to believe that there was ever a time where I didn't …

Exterior View
Being more a fan of traditionally made sushi, I tend not to dig Japanese fusion joints too much, especially since most are really just gimmicky and overpriced.  However, for Sashi, I'm going to have …

Durian
I'm not gonna lie, I use to HATE durian with a passion when I was a little kid.  Maybe it was the way it smelled to me then (some say that it's comparable to sweaty gym socks, but I've …

Mangosteen
I first discovered these unusual looking fruits in Thailand when I was a little kid.  Looking like a small, round, burgundy, Thai eggplant, it did not look appetizing at all as a kid, but my mom …

Toro
Toro is the holy grail of all sashimi.  It's the underbelly of the bluefin tuna, and it's the most scarce (toro is only about 8% of a tuna!), delicious, and, therefore, expensive, sashimi that there …

Maguro
When most Americans think about nom nom nom-ing on tuna, the first things that come to mind are probably the standard tuna sandwiches, and tuna salad on crackers.  Ya know, the Chicken of the Sea …

Dim Sum
Growing up in a Cantonese household, I've been eating dim sum ever since I could remember.  At least one weekend a month, my parents would pack up my siblings and I (and sometimes Grandma!), and …

Tea
In China, whether someone wants to apologize, show gratitude, or show respect to someone, the most simple and cordial way to do this is to offer the person a cup of tea.  It's obvious that tea is …

Uni
Consuming uni can be a hit or miss.  When it's bad, it's downright foul, but when it's good, it's *amazing*.  I know most foods are best consumed when fresh, but when it comes to uni, it has …

Philadelphia Roll
The Philadelphia roll is way up there on my list of favorite fusion rolls.  Its got three of my favorite things in it - raw, slimy fish (usually tuna or salmon!), cream cheese and avocado.  …
