Easy KL Hokkien Mee

For the longest time, I had been craving for the authentic KL version of hawker-style Fried Hokkien Mee – thick, dark, slippery, sticky noodles with lots of gooey, caramelized gravy and a breath of wok.

Birthday Celebration

So that time of the year has come again. The big Birthday. And for the first time, I’m celebrating it thousands of miles from home. Well, to me it really doesn’t make a big difference where I celebrate it, not as much as who I celebrate it with. Yesterday, Saucer brought me to Ribs and…
