Jeaw Hon (Isaan Meat Soup)

jeaw-hon-2

The other day, Yaseen asked me what weather we’re in right now. I was speechless for a whole minute because I truly didn’t know what kind of weather we were in at the moment. I told him “Well, we’re kind of in the end of rainy season and on the way to winter.” He seemed

It’s another busy week in this household. Yaseen is having mid-term exams at the moment, and Sadik is in the south for the conference. It’s tough when I have to run the show alone. Usually, Sadik helps me get Yaseen ready for school while I cook them breakfast and pack lunch. Now I have to

Glass Noodle with Duck Egg and Tofu Soup

glass noodle soup 2

When I was in high school, living away from home, I rented a house in the city. Actually, it was more like a shop. I remember that I didn’t have a front door, but I had this big steel shutter which made a massive rolling roar when someone came in and out. The property was

Have you ever play the game called Opposite? Yaseen taught us this game. We always play it while we are on a long road trip. In Opposite game, you are supposed to ask each other the yes-or-no questions. It’s a good way to learn more about someone. The fun part of the game is you

In Thailand, Tom Kha and Tom Yum Dishes are served with meal and rice. They’re not served as soup like how you get them in the restaurants around here. The spicy fragrant broth is perfect for keeping the meal exciting. This is the fish version of the delicious famous Tom Kha Gai. I use the

Noodle with Miso and Mushroom Broth

It rained at 9.30 am here, yesterday. It wasn’t much and not at all satisfying but it cooled the air down enough to have a thought for a soup. The smell of wet mud rose from the ground to our 4th floor apartment. I opened the window and invited the cold spray in. Anything hot

Soup of the Sea

I grew up in Northeast of Thailand, where it was separated and cut out from the sea. The first time I saw the sea was on a family trip when I was really young. I didn’t remember when or any other details about the trip but the great, grand, glorious view that took my breath

Garlic Chicken Noodle Soup

I use a lot of garlic in my cooking. It’s like a strict beginning of a ritual, starting with a smoking hot pan of peanut oil and then some garlic. Immediately that fragrance rises from the pan, broken cloves are scorched and turn into gorgeous golden flakes. That is when the oil is flavored, and

A bowl of noodle soup works as any meal. It can be a hearty breakfast, lunch or dinner. So whenever I prepare broth for noodle soup, I cook in mass. Broth can be store in refrigerator for very long time. For a quick bowl of noodle, I heat up the broth, blanch the noodle and
