Easy 15 Minute Teriyaki Salmon

May 26, 2020

Yup, you read that right. This easy 15 minute teriyaki salmon takes no time at all to make and you don't need many condiments either. I usually cook 4 fillets at the same time and whilst that's cooking away, I'll have another pan for the veggies. My rice cooker is always on way before I start cooking so rice is ready around the same time that the salmon and vegetables has finished cooking.

Top 9 Things To Do In Ishigaki Okinawa | Japan

May 18, 2020

Aside from the insanely delicious food on offer in Ishigaki Island, the views around the whole island is just spectacular. There's plenty to do for families with young children/older children, couples, individuals and friends alike. Although we had 5 days in Ishigaki, there just wasn't enough time to do everything - which means we will need to come back again another time!

Chinese Style Pork Chops

May 12, 2020

This Chinese style pork chop recipe is just like the way my parents make it and I love it. As soon as the chops hit the sizzling pan, the aroma that fills the house is just irresistible. My parents always squeezed lots of ginger juice into the marinade and this is the key for making them taste so good.

Japanese Style Fish Soup

May 05, 2020

I wanted to find ways of incorporating more fish in our diets but in a wallet friendly way so I turned to frozen white fillets. They are cheap to buy and all supermarkets sell them. When I first started cooking with them, I found it quite tasteless and with the soft texture, it was hard to do much with them.

Sheung Hei Claypot Rice | Hong Kong

April 27, 2020


I really miss Hong Kong.

I'd already booked our flights to Hong Kong for our annual family trip but as the COVID-19 situation got progressively worse, I knew our trip in April would have to be cancelled indefinitely. Instead of focusing on what we can't do, I'm looking back on our pass trips and reliving the good times.

Japanese Udon Noodle | Koya, Soho London

April 21, 2020

In Japan, there's always the debate of which noodle you love the most; ramen, soba or udon. Out of the three, hands down my favourite is udon. Thick, bouncy and silky. 

Japanese Tebasaki Chicken Wings

April 13, 2020

I always remember Tebasaki wings with such fondness and good memories. I first tasted them at Koya, back when chef Junya was running it and to this day, it remains one of my favourite restaurants of all time.

Chinese Poached Chicken Noodle Soup

April 07, 2020

Nothing ever goes to waste in my kitchen, so following on from the chicken with ginger and spring onion recipe, I used the the chicken broth that was leftover from poaching a whole chicken and turned it into a chicken noodle in soup for another delicious family meal.

Chinese Style Chicken with Ginger and Spring Onion

March 31, 2020

We are living in the craziest times with the whole world in lockdown because of COVID-19 and I don't think any of us will ever forget this time. But when we are faced with such challenging times, we must find the positives in our situation to help us get through it.

A Food Guide to Ishigaki Okinawa | Japan

March 23, 2020

I had the time of my life eating Okinawan food in Ishigaki, some of which are completely unique to this sun filled island. Ishigaki beef, Ishigaki pineapple, purple sweet potato and sea grapes 'umibudo', just to name a few, are all must eats of Ishigaki in Okinawa. You'll be hooked once you try Okinawan food, which is distinctly different to Japanese food on the mainland.

Valentine's Day has long come and gone and I had completely forgotten that I'd wanted to share this blog post until I was scrolling back through my photos on my phone. As you guys know, I now love to make every celebratory day or festival a thing for Isaac.
