Chicken Mie Pangsit

with dry egg noodles, chicken dumpling and choy sum, served with prawn cracker, chicken broth and sriracha sauce.

A new cooking experience

We’re embracing technology while also acknowledging the world situation. So, I’ve been doing my best to set up my restaurant Monsoon remotely. Although I can’t be in Hong Kong personally, I’ve regularly liaised with Chef Budiana and the Monsoon team via video conferencing and working live online with Zoom. Then came an idea: to offer people a new experience of cooking from home.

We start this new masterclass series with a pillar of the Indonesian food culture, derived from the traditional Chinese cooking techniques: the “mie ayam pangsit” (seasoned noodles served with diced chicken on top)
