Mie Ayam (Chicken Noodle)

There are many ways of cooking Mie Ayam (Chicken Noodle), and this style is more of Chinese Indonesian style.

But of course,…

Mie Goreng Tek-tek (Indonesian fried-noodle, street food style)

Lately I have been missing Indonesian street-food, after all it is where I am from, and unfortunately Stuttgart has nothing to offer. So I gotta make one to fulfil my homesickness.

Stir-fried Tempe-Beans-Dried Fish

I have been craving to eat dried fish. It’s salty and crunchy (if you deep fry them). It can be found relatively easy in the big Asian supermarket in Stuttgart, which I bought a few months ago but never got the chance to cook it. Here I found the idea of mixing tempe and dried…

Steamed Fish in Soy Sauce & Ginger

One of many things I miss from China is to be able to have a nice fish dish that doesn’t cost a fortune. This is so easy to make and taste like a five stars Chinese Restaurant (maybe I am a little too exaggerating?). The taste is so rich not only from the soy sauce…
