Crystal Mall Food Court: 99 BBQ House

Meat on sticks grilled over an open fire in the food court of an Asian/Chinese mall. Say What? Is this Legal? Am I in a night market? Am I in China? Answers: Chinese yakitori. Yes. No, but close. No, and not quite close. It wasn’t mealtime and I was on my way home. But one look at the pictures in front of the stall and … Continue reading Crystal Mall Food Court: 99 BBQ House

Crystal Mall Food Court: Ipoh Bean Sprout Chicken

After I placed an order of the Ipoh bean sprout chicken at its namesake stall, I stood around to observe the food that other people ordered from the stall. The most popular item that came out of the kitchen by far was the laksa. It was on every other tray being brought to the counter.

I stood practically frozen for a good ten minutes watching nothing but pipping hot deep fried chicken wings coming out of the kitchen of Wo Fung. I had just finished having a filling meal with … Continue reading Aberdeen Centre Food Court: Chicken Wings at Wo Fung

It’s good to be back home again

Day 20 – The Poutine… What is Canadian food? I really can’t tell you after living in Toronto from my early teenage years to my mid-twenties. If it’s the food I see people eat everyday, then it’s hamburgers, hot dogs, pizza, pasta, and steak. It is indistinguishable from what most people consider American food. This comes as no surprise as before our modern era of … Continue reading It’s good to be back home again
