How long will Spam last after opening the can? I’m not talking about interpreting the expiration dates on the can, or finding 10-year old spam in the trunk of your car, I’m talking how long is Spam good for after you’ve opened it, taken it out and have properly stored it

I trekked to Confucius Plaza today to see my visiting dad. My pops likes to visit New York quarterly to see the relatives and to stock up on Chinese ingredients. One of those ingredients he picks up on his New York Chinatown trips is called Lap Cheong (or Lop Chong)

Fried Taro Puffs / Taro Dumplings

August 18, 2013 / 0 comments

My current dim sum obsession is the fried taro puff dumplings, or wu gok (Cantonese). These little delicious suckers look like baby puffer fish that were stuffed with seasoned minced pork and deep fried for my gorging pleasure.
