On My Plate:
1) Daikon Radish Chili Oil Dumplings
2) Spicy Hunan Baby Potatoes
3) Foo’s Hakka Noodles
Notes: One of my most memorable post-lockdown meals was at Foo, an Asian Bistro-Bar. I couldn’t get enough of their Daikon Radish Chili Oil dumplings. The radish was fresh, tart and zinged. The chili oil came to be a surprisingly mellow companion to the earthiness of the daikon.
The Hunan Baby Potatoes were equally gold and served hot, these tasted exceptional. The sauce was sweet, full-bodied and umami. Paired with the baby potatoes, it left a beautiful nutty aftertaste. Even cold, these went beautifully with steamed dumplings and serve as perfect companions to our large plate of noodles.
With Foo’s Hakka noodles, a mellow sweetness served as the top flavor note while the spice hit me like a well-made background score from a fight scene. The tart spring onions were a delight to munch on. The noodles bounced back when bitten. I paired these with a tiny bit of chili oil and I was rewarded with the best possible noodle-sauce combo.
