KUNG FU Little Steamed Buns Ramen: Shanghainese Comfort

KUNG FU Little Steamed Buns Ramen - shrimp and loofah steamed pork bun - soup

Dear Food Diary:
Let me start by saying what’s on everyone’s mind: “I hate their name!”. The Kung Fu part is fine but Little Steamed Buns Ramen is just confusing and unnecessary. That said, their xiao long bao aka soup dumplings or buns are really darn good.

The gem is their shrimp, loofah and pork soup dumplings, a replica of one of my favorite fillings at the king of xiao long baos - Ding Tai Fung. Another favorite is their Shanghainese style wonton soup, which reminds me of my ChubbyMama.

SEOUL CHICKEN: Asian and Southern style fried chicken

If double fried, korean style chicken wings bathing in Asian flavors tickle your appetite, this is the place for you.

Don’t be fooled by the name. Seoul Chicken is a mixture of Asian influences with Chef Chaz Brown’s Southern background.

Our wedding in Bali was an unforgettable celebration with our closest friends and family under a beautiful setting.

Away for wedding

Sorry I’ve been MIA lately.

Been planning a wedding from abroad while starting a new job. Hectic and stressful, I can’t wait to relax by the beach.

Will resume all eating and writing once I get back from Bali!

Happy Eating!
