recipe: turnip cakes

Turnip cakes are a classic at dim-sum restaurants, and have always been my favorite item (I save room for an entire serving for it each time...) While the more appropriate name is radish cake, they are an incredibly savory dish featuring veggies, sausages and rice flour. They're a bit of a time commitment, but nothing too extreme -- block out an hour and a half-ish, and you've got yourself some turnip cakes. And paired with some hoisin sauce and Lao Gan Ma chili crisp sauce...well, that's as good as life gets.

dallas: imoto

Have you guys ever tried a Pan-Asian restaurant? You know, a place that focuses on cuisine from all across Asia? Because I had not until I visited Imoto. And I can say Imoto not only focuses on diverse Asian food but also cares about creating delicious Asian food with a modern spin.

austin: bird bird biscuit

We're BIG chicken people: chicken and waffles, chicken and biscuits, just chicken, fried chicken, we love it all. So we're always on the lookout for more chicken places around town, and when my roommate started raving about this new place called Bird Bird Biscuit, you bet we immediately hopped into our car the next morning for an early brunch.
