 Hi guys!

Today I’m going to show you how to make Green Tea Latte! :-) 

So yummy and delicious! If you want to try something other than cafe-latte, this is the one you need to try!

Matcha powder AKA green tea powder might seems pricy for the amount you get, but think how much you are paying for cafe/Starbucks.  It’s totally, totally much cheaper- also you can make some other green tea dessert recipes.

Samgyetang Recipe : Korean Ginseng Chicken Soup, 삼계탕 (蔘鷄湯)

IMG_0529 copy

蔘: 인삼 삼 (Ginseng: Sam) , 鷄: 닭 계 (Chicken: Gye), 湯: 탕 (Soup: Tang)

Samgyetang. One of historical dish from Korea.

My dad used to take me to this Samgyetang restaurant in South Korea, where we lived every summer time. They serve a shot of ginseng liquor to every guests, even you are a kid. The ginseng shot is for the health, not to drunk purpose, so my dad always led me drink the ginseng shot first before the meal. 

IMG_0551 copy

Ginseng warms your body from inside out as well as chicken. Usually summer time(when the weather is hot) our outer body is hot so our inner body is very busy to cool the body down. So drink or eating cold food makes our tummy even more colder. That is why people get sick easily with the food during the summer time. Some smart Koreans figured it out and recommended to eat warm and hot food during summer time. 

So traditionally we eat Samgyetang 3 times during the summer. The beginning, the middle and the end. 

Protein wasn’t always available for everybody back then in Korea, even 50, 60 years ago. So Samgyetang helped provide strength through out challenging hot weather. It is consider as a stamina food. ;-) 

IMG_0532 copy

I understand the Samgyetang herbal ingredient kit is hard to find in some places, so here are the links I found where you can buy from internet. 

Amazon’s Samgyetang Herbal Ingredient Kit

Hmart’s Samgyetang Herval Ingredients Kit

You might can find better website that carries these ingredients, but I’m only willing to share those website where I can trust and the price is make sense. 

Also, you can make this recipe without the kit. Just get fresh/dried ginseng and dried jujube. Those are the key herbal ingredients for Samgyetang.

Hope you try my Samgyetang recipe one day!

Hi guys!

Today I’m going to share with you my classic Chinese Fried Rice Recipe! It’s simple, quick and easy recipe that everyone can make it at home! 

IMG_0344 copy

The variety of fried rice is numberless, like pizza! So feel free to substitute the vegetables or protein for your own taste, even soy sauce! Sometime I love adding salt instead of soy sauce, it makes fried rice taste so much clean and simple flavor. 

I have a lot of different version of fried rice recipes, and would love to share all one day! 

IMG_0353 copy

This classic Chinese Fried Rice Recipe is probably the most popular and common in U.S I believe. If you omit the protein and dark soy from my recipe, it’s pretty much what you get from Japanese steak house, habachi restaurant. I also have yumyum sauce recipe that usually served at Japanese steak house, it’s super delicious if you pour over your fried rice.

I know, I know, I know,
