Four Foods Friday #001

This week I discovered a great meme that'll surely add spice here to my blog. Called the Four Foods Friday meme, it is a quick and easy way to know fellow bloggers. It's fun so let's start the ball rolling:

#1. Do you prefer to eat Chinese food in the restaurant or to have it delivered?
- We always go to our favourite Chinese restaurant called the Peking Canteen near the Central Market. The Peking Canteen is popular to backpackers and expats in Phnom Penh for its fried pork dumplings, among others. It's a small, unassuming place but the food really rocks! There are times though that my husband and I would rather stay home and settle for home-delivery.

#2. Do you prefer wonton or egg drop soup?
- It's wonton anytime!

#3. What flavor fried rice is your favorite?
- I go for seafood fried rice and topped with fried egg. It tends to be greasy at times but I am just happy to indulge at least once a month. I do have my own fried rice recipe where I put diced plump tomatoes for that extra flavour.

#4. Describe your favorite item on the Chinese food menu.
- Szechuan tofu, a wonderful spicy minced pork with tofu. Simple, easy to cook and a healthy dish. I tried making this at home but I can never get the right flavour. It's the MSG, people say. Chinese cooks tend to put too much of it.

Welcome! I make some Chinese-type dishes also, but can't get the authentic flavor either.
