Phoa Hoa Restaurant

I cannot believe it! After having all the local food for about 2 weeks, my son and I actually crave for PHO! As most of you may know, in Vancouver there are plenty of Vietnamese Restaurants and we will have our dose of Pho at least once a month. Btw, the only person that dislikes Pho in my family is my daughter but she doesn't mind some of the Vietnamese dishes though. So, we decided to have our fix of Pho on the day that she was at her friend's place. We went to Phoa Hoa restaurant. They are located at The Curve shopping mall in Mutiara Damansara. Obviously we had the Pho and it was very refreshing and so satisfying! I had ordered two extra dishes to share and they were marvelous too!


Bun Ga Nuong - Grilled Chicken served with thin vermicelli noodles and vegetables


Sugarcane Prawn (I have a great recipe over here)


Pho Tai - Noodle soup with Eye Round Steak

  1. And here I thought Pho was just soup! We have a Pho restaurant that opened a few months ago in town, I've got to try it out!

  4. Truly, there is nothing better on a cold day than a big bowl of pho. It warms you up, and refreshes you at the same time with all its fresh herbs. It's a perfect one-dish meal.

  6. I have to say that Pho Hoa here in Victoria on the island has always disappointed me. I've only had take-out but the noodles were gluey and the spring rolls were stale (as if they were hours old and stored in a fridge). I always go to Pho Vy here - it's one of my favorite restaurants in Victoria. You should try them if you're ever on the island!

Raw Energy Bars~Chocolate, Cashew, And Almond

I get energized everytime I make Raw Energy Bars at home. I have tried several recipes and flavors before; but, this Chocolate, Cashew, and Almond flavor is currently my favorite! It's made from scratch using raw ingredients, such as Medjool dates, cashew, almond, cocoa, and coconut. You will be amazed with the end result. Not only are these bars good for you, they also taste great! So, if you are into raw energy bars, then you may want to try this recipe. If possible, please send me your feedback as well. Have a great weekend.

Dumplings

I'm actually laughing at myself! What have I got into? Trying to make dumplings?? Well, I have seen my late grandmother make them a long time ago. I can remember the ingredients but not the measurements! So, it took me about two hours to come up with the perfect recipes, and I'm glad I did! It was an instant hit! They were all gone, all gobbled up!

Make the dough first, add about 480 to 500g of all-purpose flour with 300ml of water. Knead the dough and let it rest. You should be able to make 40 dumplings with the dough. Meanwhile, prepare the filling for the dumplings. Click here for the dumpling wrappers video.
