Shio ramen with sprouts, vietnamese basil, coriander, and lemon.  Healthy and doesn’t make me sleepy or thirsty! 

Also century egg w tofu, chives and tomato, salt and chilli oil.

    Hey Taro,

    I have only had roughly chopped century egg on top of a slab of chilled tofu with lashings of sesame oil – the addition of tomatoes is new to me!
    I imagine it would work really well though, especially for summer?

    Mum also makes what she calls three-egg mix – it’s basically a mixture of roughly chopped century egg a (1) and roughly chopped salted egg (1) mixed into beaten eggs (2) and steamed over low heat
    Probably works best if the mixture is contained in a shallow dish (so it cooks quicker)
    Home cooking at its best! =)

    • Michelle, thanks for the info. Steamed three egg mix! Sounds good. A bit like chawanmushi in Japanese cooking. Which, you put in things like chicken, prawn, ginkgo nuts, fish cake, shiitake, bamboo shoots in a chawan (tea cup) and put in egg and dashi broth beaten hard to a smooth mix, then steamed with a tea cup lid on. very hard to perfect.

    Yum! Totally love chawan mushi!!!

    I agree, it’s so hard to get that silky-smooth texture – I suspect they strain the mixture when pouring it into the cup prior to steaming?
