Hiyashi Chuka (Cold Ramen)

1 comments

As I mentioned in my last post, I still have a couple of summer recipes up my sleeve which I'd love to share with you, and although the majority are salad recipes, summer food doesn't only have to be salad!

One of my favourite ways to cool down in summer is with cold noodles, with Naengmyeon, or Korean cold noodles, being my go-to in summer. I always have mine served with plenty of ice, so it's perfect for those 40+ degree days.

Quick Chicken Laksa

0 comments
With the scorching summer behind us and Autumn bringing in much cooler (albeit wet and humid) weather, it's time to crank up the stove and welcome some warmer Autumn dishes. I've still got a handful of summer salad recipes up my sleeve, but I thought I'd give the blog a break from salad, and share this delicious laksa recipe instead.

Perhaps more of a winter sort of comfort-food, but hey- it's not salad!


I'm usually the type of person who prefers to make everything from scratch, but this is one of the few recipes which I haven't even wanted to try making completely from scratch. Why would I need to when my trusty go-to brand of laksa paste in this recipe gives me exactly the results I'm looking for?

The recipe is quite simple- blitz together some onions, mix it with the laksa paste, then boil it with plenty of coconut milk and you've got yourself a tasty laksa base which you can add your noodles and other ingredients to. The only time consuming part is pureeing the onions, but apart from that it's super simple and quick!

Korean Soy Beans

0 comments

There have been many a times when I've dined in Korean restaurants more for their side dishes than the items ordered off the menu. In fact, the highlight of one of my favourite Korean restaurants was not any of the items on the menu, but the Korean soy bean side dish served before the start of every meal.

Sadly, the restaurant is not longer running, and I have yet to find another replacement which even serves this soy bean dish at all, so I turned to the internet to find a recipe to replicate this at home.
