Stir Fry Beef and Celery with XO Sauce
Stir fry dishes are a no brainer for a weekend night dinner. I usually choose a meat such as pork or beef and a veggie such a bok choy or broccoli… and voila, you have a dish. You can either whip up a simple brown sauce (oyster sauce, sugar, cornstarch and water) or use store-bought black bean sauce to tie the ingredients together.
A stir fry I like to make on a weeknight is this Beef and Celery with XO Sauce. The XO sauce brings so much flavour to the dish and the beef cooks in a jiffy. Read more >>

A classic winter warmer that HKer’s love to eat is Claypot Rice (煲仔飯). It’s a hearty dish of rice, soy sauce and simple ingredients such as Lap Cheong and chicken cooked in a claypot.

Without a doubt, the best part of this dish is the crispy crust that forms on the bottom and sides of the claypot. Read more >>
U-Hang: New Addition to Sai Ying Pun
I’ve always found it exhilarating to discover new restaurants with great food unexpectedly. Last Friday evening, hubby and I were strolling along High Street in Sai Ying Pun to find some food to fill our growling stomachs. We stumbled upon U-Hang, and thinking it was a new Spanish tapas restaurant, we walked in without looking at the menu. A glance at the menu, and we realized it was a Korean resto!
