Back to Basic, Simple and Honest Food

During our recent overseas trip to Malaysia, Singapore, Macao and Guangzhou, we were amazed by the vast variety of fast food outlets offering a fusion of eastern and western food. They seem to sprout like mushrooms. Even in Guangzhou, the historical food capital of Chinese cuisine is not spared.

We chose to eat at places that served straight forward, honest food to share with friends.

Where every mouthful of food brought back memories of the traditional kitchen, to its preparations for special feast days and the simple ritual of everyday family meals.
