mint caipirinha

Last fleeting days of summer. A beautiful Friday calls for a beautiful cocktail... A slight mod of a caipirinha. Novo Fogo barrel-aged cachaça. Mint from the garden. Sit back and enjoy.

crispy pig trotter

I don't eat pig trotter often, but when I do, it's usually at Spinasse. Stay hungry, my friend.

the "football" (鹹水角)

a.k.a. deep fried pork dumpling. my all-time favorite dim sum item ever since I was a kid. horrible if done poorly, but magical when done well. like at Sun Sui Wah in Richmond, B.C.
