    Didn't have any coriander but still tasted great.  -  06 Nov 2016


    Smashing surprise dish. I was quite apprehensive when making this dish, as I have never tried corriander in chinese kitchen before. My concern was that corriander ( which I like a lot) may overpower other ingridients. It turned out to be perfect marriage. You still had typical chinese saltiness, sweetness and hotness, perfectly balanced with freshness. I also was worried the portion was not very substantial -no meat, not much veg, but again it was more filling than I thought it would be, and not too heavy. Sounds like great option for those who count calories without compromise of taste. The only thing I did alter was garlic amount, which I tripled.  -  31 Aug 2016
