Poco Homemade

"A quirky and unpretentious eatery..."

Stepping into this café is much like going to someone’s home for a meal. An old fashioned sewing machine sitting in the corner makes it feel like you’re over at grandmas. All the furniture are old pieces that have been salvaged and recycled, such as using lawn chairs and school desks in place of the usual restaurant fittings. The quirky décor is done in the popular Japanese Zakka style. This is when a place is decorated with kitschy household items that are mainly from the fifties, sixties, and seventies.

Poco Homemade was started by a young couple who are known as Zzz and Mermer. Their interests are prominently displayed throughout the café as Zzz loves doing draft work and sketches and Mermer enjoys sewing and handmade crafts. This would explain the art displayed throughout and the beautifully stitched pieces such as the fluorescent light covers and cloth coasters. The person responsible for the healthy homemade dishes prepared here is none other than Zzz’s mother.   More »

The Origins of Yee Sang

“Do you know yee sang, the dish with raw fish?” I asked breathlessly as I went around China in my last visit. When the person I asked didn’t speak English, I switch to Chinese, which makes it worse. Although I’m part Chinese, my Mandarin is almost non-existent, as my street dialect is Cantonese and even then my tones are tortured.More »

Dong Yi Shun

"Seafood in tasty broth in a dumpling..."

The sign at Dong Yi Shun is green indicating Muslim food. And their specialty here is hand-pulled noodles. History records that La Mian was invented by a muslim named Ma Baozi in 1915. Baozi was of the Hui nationality in Lanzhou. He first peddled the streets selling his noodles that became so famous their tastiness that they became known as the 'Ma Baozi Beef Noodles' in the city. In 1919, he opened his first shop and over the next century, the la mian technique grew to what is it today.

There are many tasty dishes in Dong Yi Shun. Highly recommended is the Xinxing La Mian Noodles which is stir fried noodles with beef slices and green peppers. I like the texture of the noodles which I can best describe as smooth and al-dente. They also have soup versions I am happy to recommend. The Mutton Lamee comes with a light and clear broth, mutton slices and mushrooms.   More »
