Lao Gan Ma is a really good chili sauce from China. There’s a video of John Cena confessing his love for it. Hahaha. If you google the sauce, you can even buy Lao Gan Ma merch. 😲
Look out for more art related things in the coming months! I am officially on summer break, and I finally have time to sit down and draw more. It’s good to be back! ☺️🌶
Dim sum has a special place in my heart, especially those from Cantonese dim sum restaurants back in Vancouver. My family is from Shanghai, so our version of dim sum is a little different from popular dim sum foods in North America. My mom hates going to the restaurants because they were so loud. I mean how can they not be? Just imagine waking up on a Saturday morning and grabbing har gow (the best dim sum) with close family and friends. There is a lot of excitement, and I am one for it.
So maybe the fact that I rarely ate dim sum made me love dim sum even more. Being in Kingston sort of sucks for me because dim sum here falls very short compared to the ones back home. That doesn’t stop me from drawing them. If I can’t eat them, at least I can look at them and imagine myself eating it? 🤪
These har gow (crystal shrimp dumplings) are my favorite. I don’t even know how they get shrimps that big.
These chicken or pork sticky rice wrapped in some kind of leaf (so I am not the best at remembering the actual names) was one of my favourite dim sum foods growing up. Even though I don’t eat chicken or pork anymore, they still hold a special place in my heart.
Feast your eyes. Googling “dim sum” is another great way to feast your eyes. You might get some serious cravings though. You have been warned! 🤤
When your sandwich is perfect…Ahhh..It’s priceless.
It has been a while since I posted. There’s no excuse but during the time that I was gone, I did many things. One of them being perfecting the best sandwich combinations…At least to me they are, keep in mind I am no masterchef (shocking). Here are 2 of my favourites as of now. Give them a try. They packed with flavour because your girl hates bland food.
Not your average 🌚 savory sandwich:
- thick italian white bread
- generous avocado hummus or regular
- 2 pickle slices
- a handful of alfalfa sprouts
- pan fried crispy tofu or smoked tofu
- 4 tomato slices and 4 cucumbers slices
Gourmet 🥂 pb and jelly combo:
- whole wheat bread
- chucky peanut butter
- lots of grape jelly
- toasted coconut chips
All of this is making me hungry! Look out for more posts about my love for food and my peculiar taste, and lots more art related things! ☕️
