Introduction to Dim Sum

Wan Hao Chinese Restaurant

Address:Wan Hao Rating Meter
320 Orchard Road
3F Marriott Hotel, Singapore
Tel: +65 6831 4615

Question, where do you take a chef to eat when you’ve run out of ideas?  Why not dim sum!  In our attempt to bring to light the concept of Dim Sum (a Chinese dish of small steamed or fried savory dumplings containing various fillings, served as a snack or main course) we sought about a venue; after several failed attempts to find somewhere due to our last minute-ness we were finally able to make it to Wan Hao at the Marriott.

Mussel Madness

@ Sin Ming Cookhouse / Bakery / Whatever

Upon a recent discovery to my local neighborhood shops I chanced upon a place that sells quite a good range of live seafood; yes you heard live seafood for sale just around the corner.  So it was off the Sheng Siong market I went, and what I came back with was an entire kilo of fresh, live green local mussels; slightly smaller than what I used to get back home in Sydney they’re still a nice little treat to eat!

Knuckle Sandwich

@ Sin Ming Cookhouse / Bakery / Whatever

Nothing beats a roasted pork knuckle.  The crackling of the skin as you cut through it with a knife, the aroma of the caraway seeds roasting away and the melt in your mouth succulent and juicy meat when you put it in your mouth.  I got inspired to make this after watching a German episode on SBS televisions “Food Safari” (though I have to admit, I did alter the recipe slightly.. as you do of course)

Kopi-oooooo, no it’s not the Fun Pack Song

They say that when life gives you lemons, you make lemonade.  When my friend gave me a small quantity of the most expensive coffee in the world (kopi luwak – civet cat poo coffee) well you make yourself a cuppa!  But what to do with the still flavorful used coffee powder?  Why make kopi luwak ice cream dear Watson!

Coffee Anyone?

@Sin Ming Bakery / Cookhouse / Whatever

One thing I love ordering at dim sum (if it is available) are the coffee cooked pork ribs.  “Pork ribs cooked with coffee?” I hear you say, yes that’s right the bitter taste of coffee infused with the sweet tasting meat of pork, it just works!
Here’s the recipe for the coffee pork ribs.  I think the next time I cook it I’ll try leaving the ribs long and uncut and also perhaps try BBQing them!

When you hear the word ‘soufflé’, one other word immediately comes to mind ‘difficult’, doing just enough to ensure you’ve got all the air in the mixture, then ensuring you’ve got the right temperature and cooking time to make sure that the soufflé cooks thoroughly and that it rises!
