Mid-thirties degrees today, here in New York City. It’s Spring, but feels like Winter! On cold “Winter” days like this, I crave a nice hot bowl of stew. I opted for a quick, hot meal at K-Bap, a small Korean place in Midtown West.
Happy Lunar New Year!
After a long day filled with hosting and coordinating New Year activities for our families and communities, my Chinese and Vietnamese friends and I were finally able to sit down, eat and enjoy the first day of a prosperous year ahead of us!
We went to one of our favorite spots in Chinatown in NYC, Old Shanghai Deluxe. We ordered several dishes that we loved from the restaurant and must have for this holiday.
A Lunar New Year dinner must always have dumplings, and we were craving for the restaurant’s Soup Dumplings.
I discovered Kopitiam, this hidden gem, during one of my walks in Chinatown. It’s a small “stop and go” place that serves typical Malaysian dishes for breakfast and snacks. It’s run by a Malaysian family, and their kitchen is the size of my bathroom…Tiny! Resourceful, creative…their food has to be authentic and good. I made a mental note to return.
I went back and fell in love with the place. My prior thoughts were also correct. This is now one of my top 10 places in Chinatown.
Happy New Year! Hello, 2016!
Every New Year’s Day, Hubby and I go out to eat dumplings. Even though my family is Vietnamese and his is Taiwanese, we grew up with the tradition of eating dumplings on New Year’s Day.
It’s New Years’ Day and cold outside – Perfect for a bowl of noodle soup and dumplings. We went to Lao Bei Fang in Elmhurst.
