Things I love eating! After reading another fellow bloggers post about foods she'd rather not eat I realized that I HAD to do a post about all the foods I love to eat. I pretty much will eat almost anything that's cooked and tasty. I like all types of flavors, spices, cooking techniques and cuisines. It's almost hard for me to think of food I don't like!
In the past I wrote a post called "10 Things: I wish I knew about make up as a Teen" (see it here!) and so I thought I'd be extending the '10 Things' series on my blog with this post of things I love eating!
Continue below to see the 10 Things I love eating!
|10 Things: I love eating!|
1. Dim sum
I love everything about dim sum. The pan-fried, the steamed, the deep fried, the baked…I love the different textures, skins, fillings, flavors and how there's everything from vegetarian, pork, shrimp, bean curd and so many things in the fillings! Give me an all dim sum meal anytime!
|I could eat dim sum for lunch or dinner! Anytime is a good time! Fried, steamed or pan fried!|
|This is how chicken liver/gizzard is served in Singapore! Blanched/boiled and served with a light sauce! We eat this with chicken rice or with porridge! |

If you don't love seafood and you're not allergic to any, you'd be getting some weird looks in my family. Seafood has long been associated with wealth and my family always eats lots of seafood at special family meals! I love prawns and scallops best. Blanched and pan seared respectively! We eat plenty of seafood on a daily basis too, my mom loves cooking fish.
|A big tray of assorted seafoods and meats my mom whips up at home for Chinese New Year dinner! Boiled prawns, braised mini abalone, sauteed scallops, braised chilled jelly fish and sliced pork!|
Crusty, classic, milky, soft like from break talk! I love all types of breads. I love classic crusty french baguettes that a lot of asians here consider too hard but that's how they are when it's been warmed up and then cooled. I also love flavored sliced loaf breads like chocolate, honey, milk and also very common here is bread buns from stores like Bread talk, Four leaves and family run bakeries.
|I love sliced bread, artisanal loafs, Italian breads and soft asian bread buns like from Bread Talk! Link to source here!|
I've been eating spicy things since I was young. Sweet chilli sauce is purely sweet to me. I love indonesian chilli paste which is basically usually made of pounded bird's eye chilli, shallots and garlic. I don't eat super spicy food all the time but love chilli oil for my pasta, chilli dips, chilli powder in marinades!
6. Chinese noodles
Hand made chinese noodles, Ban Mian, la main…there are so many shapes and styles of hand made noodles and I love all of them. I love the chewiness and the bounce. Spicy mince meat sauce, in a soup with wonton, served chilled or piping hot covered in spring onions, coriander and a drizzle of sesame oil! I could use a bowl right now!
|Chinese noodles aren't all the same, as seen above these noodles are made from wheat which makes the noodles very chewy and they don't over cook easily. We have yellow noodles, rice noodles, wheat noodles and glass noodles! There's so many types!|
Maybe it's because I'm Chinese…or maybe because I freaking just love pork. BBQ pork ribs, crispy crackling pork belly, char sui pork, braised pork loin, juicy pork shoulder chops, mince pork for noodles, pork in chinese dumplings…it's easy to add to this list!
|Growing up in a traditional chinese family in the sense that we had plenty of home made meals I'm a lover of pork in all ways from all cuisines. Steamed, baked, roasted, fried, BBQ...I can't live without pork!|
Spagetthi, fettucine, shell, penne…I like every type of shape! I also am a fan of all variations of tomato sauces, the basic, with chilli, with mince meat, vegetarian! I also love plain oil and garlic pastas or chilli oil pastas too! I've never really like white cream sauces for my pastas otherwise you could set down any dish of pasta and I'd be happy to clear it!
|Much like how much I love chinese type noodles I love western pasta! I prefer tomato and oil based sauces for my pastas, love modern twists too like lemon grass and chilli oil! I steer clear of cream sauces due to the high calorie content!|
Any type of fried asian cracker! Lobster, prawn, crab, tapioca, fish, potato flour, sweet potato, taro! OMG. I love these crunchy snacks, move aside potato chips! These are my true love! My dad and I both love crackers and although he repeats that he should avoid them he will end up buying a pack or I will and we'll polish them off the same night.
|Here is a late night shot taken by my boyfriend of me stuffing my face with fried prawn crackers! I also love crab crackers, lobster crackers, fish crackers and plain tapioca crackers! Most south east asian countries have their own type of crackers!|
10. Thai/Vietnamese/ Japanese food!
If I had to move to a country and stay there until I die it would be Thailand. I love the huge variety of everything. The supermarkets are huge, I love being able to get mini sizes of every, I love the shopping, I love the affordable food! Sweet, spicy, sour, salty…I could eat thai food every single day and the same goes for Vietnamese and Japanese cuisines!
Well as you can see, I LOVE FOOD! I love most foods and I really do eat quite a lot! I spend most of my money on beauty and food! I think that food is not only a necessity but it's something to be enjoyed and something part of special occasions! I'm definitely someone who's easy to eat out with as I'm honestly not a picky person at all. Having no currently known allergies help as well as well as being a true omnivore!
