Lychee Pork and Royal Chives 荔枝肉 & 青龙菜


Felt like blogging about dinner today as the Lychee Pork was very colourful and yummy, and  i tried eating and cooking this new veggie called royal chives (aka qing long cai) for the first time. I have heard alot of rave about it for a long time but never tried it before as to be honest, it did not look very appetizing when i saw it at the grocery store. It also had a strong smell which i was not fond of. After tasting it, i realized how wrong i was. It’s really really good! I cleaned out the plate tonight cos it was really light and appetizing with a great texture. It doesn’t have a strong smell at all. If you were unsure like me before, I hope this post will change your mind!
