daikon cake 蘿蔔糕 - part 3

Daikon cake 蘿蔔糕  has been my sustenance all day today. Our local PBS station has a marathon of a NOLA cooking shows by Kevin Belton. I made a few snacks of this between the breaks. Watching all those delicious NOLA dishes made me wanting to go cook up a NOLA storm. However I cannot help but to wonder the impact to one's health especially with the size of the chef.

daikon cake 蘿蔔糕 - part 2

Patience, patience, and good thing would come. I put the steamed daikon cake 蘿蔔糕 into a tub of water to cool it. I then place it into a refrigerator to further cool it so it would be firm to be cut into slices.

Daikon cake 蘿蔔糕 is something that I really crave here in North America. When I travel to Hong Kong last time I had it a couple of times at Lin Heung Kui 蓮香居 during morning dimsum hours. It was good but not great. Without much notion of what are needed to make it, I tried once and failed miserably. It turned into a gluey mess as I didn't know what kind of flour to use.

shanghai thick wheat noodle stir fried with julienne pork 上海肉絲炒粗麵 - part 3

Each time I had Shanghai thick wheat noodle stir fried with julienne pork 上海肉絲炒粗麵 I was not satisfied. I could do better at home making my own. In the past my noodles were the biggest impediment. Slowly I gained some insight into the reasons why. This is a great dish if you are a hungry man and need to fill the voids in your empty stomach.
