Quaint Vietnamese homecooking in Miami, woohoo! Interesting owners, husband and wife Christine was in fashion and Derek’s family owned a Chinese restaurant in Davie so cooking is in his blood! •

My fav there is Pork Belly Rice Vermicelli Salad. I had to force myself to try new dishes when I went with a friend, ha, ha. We had the crispiest pork Siu Mai Appetizer. Their pho soup is House made, Christine’s ‘secret recipe’. Seems sharing good Vietnamese food runs in the family, her daughter opened 2 restaurants! •

Give this tiny place a try, you’ll enjoy fabulous, freshly cooked Viet food. #notsponsored #wokstareats #miamifood #miamichef #miamirestaurant #miamieats #miamidining #shortvideo #vietfood #miamifoodies #miamifoodblogger #miami #foodgawker #foodspotting

You don’t have to cook from scratch every night! This #cheatdinner proves it. Roast duck and leftover noodles from King Palace were a lifesaver. After giving a class yesterday, no way could I have cooked dinner from scratch. This #Buddhabowl was beyond perfect! •

Thx @hammockgreens those tender #hydroponic #pakchoi took only a second to cook in my wok! Enjoying them so much. •

Dinner was ready in 15 mins. TOTAL!!!•

I have no idea why these #hydroponicvegetables got me so tickled, thx Chef Aaron Dreilinger! •

We can’t wait till we can purchase directly from your farm @hammockgreens superb concept! It’s THE FUTURE! Just think #nopesticides #verticalfarming #freshlypicked #containerfarming #whenyouwantit #yearround

We wolfed those babies down and forgot to take photos, oops!•

So excited to launch another group of Wok Stars to start creating yumminess! •

What has #shiftingyourmindset got to do with this Stewed Beef Low Mein? After years of having this dish with soup not realizing there was a version without at King Palace! The noodles were crunchy and DELICIOUS! Not everyone will understand or love chewy tendons. But beef pieces are tender! My friend @eddielim3243 taught me to eat with #gingersauce #seriouslyhooked

Shifting your mindset was theme of my recent #newsletter

Do things DIFFERENTLY, cook differently, eat differently. Anything you do gets applied to other areas in your life! •

Shiro Pac Choi getting ready for its #wokstar debut this Sunday @patchofheavensanctuary with @wokstar ! For these little beauties that's like the superbowl! •
..........................
Excited to wok these babies in my cooking class held at @patchofheavensanctuary outdoor Chocolate Bar! These beauties are grown at @hammockgreens thx Chef Aaron, honored to be first to showcase them! They will be served on their own to really taste their flavor with just a dash of @sanjtamari and sherry, ummm!•

My class is about SHIFTING YOUR MINDSET and cooking DIFFERENTLY! That way, you’ll be creating instead of following recipes or measuring and focusing on FLAVOR, TEXTURE & COLORS! •

Your weeknight dinner reimagined! •

Swipe to see this magical 20 acre historic property where their mantra is Educate, Conserve and Preserve! Be prepared for a #getaway

You’ll round out your day with a tour after my class. It’s like being in Bali surrounded by Asian relics and lush foliage. And of course the incredible Koi pond. They’ve just finished the Bat House (recently featured in @miamiherald ) and Bee House too. •

I’ll have Asian pastries and cold infused beverage ready on your return. •

So proud my wok fried branzino came out amazing! Crispy exterior, melting inside. •

#woktip do not keep moving it, let it sear on one side till golden before flipping over! •

A #winnerdinner the Branzino held up really well. •

Neither of us even used spicy brown bean sauce, we wanted to taste the fish! •

So far I’ve steamed and fried Branzino, both in my #castironwok the best pan for cooking anything! Ask the #castiron guru @theculinaryfanatic

#wokstartribe If anyone tries this, please share! •

Look no further, restaurant quality Branzino! You can easily make this at home. The tastiest #Branzino steamed in my #castironwok and no I never timed it. But I’ll show you #stepbystep how to do it including a very traditional sauce to pour over branzino. I got 2 beauties from @Costco for $17! •

Then blanched/quick stir fry baby Bok Choy. Came together under 30 minutes! Ta Da! •

Love finding new ways to use my #castironwok Tonight was heating frozen parathas with a little #evoo wow, they came out perfect. •

Check #mystory for more! •

Also wanted to show Wok Stars how to use veggies left from Rainbow Lettuce Wrap!
1️⃣ cut veggies into julienne
2️⃣ fry with in oil, G&G @sanjtamari and sherry. Set aside.
3️⃣ Cut grilled roast pork shoulder and reheat in wok with a little #grapeseedoil
4️⃣ heated Paneer Tikka Masala sauce from @Costco

Swipe to see how I made a wrap and dotted sauce on top instead of dunking into sauce. Beauty of food is you can CHOOSE however you want to eat it! •

This was so delicious, I’ll have to make this again. A great way to use up leftovers too! •

Here’s @chefrayjr at @palmarmiami just finished wokking up my Pork Belly Kimchi Fried Rice! It was an interesting blend of Columbian, Cuban Chinese (his heritage) mixed with Korean. •

Next were juicy Shrimp with these crispy twirls and dip. •

And finally a classic Black Bean Eggplant to which chef added a surprising ingredient - kiwi! I asked him on camera why? Now, you’ll have to wait for me to edit to find out, ha, ha! Thx for sending this dish. •

Really Miami is such a small world, we discovered we “knew” each other way back when. •

A great Asian addition to Wynwood area!•

Yay #Internationalwomensday is another chance to showcase my mom’s amazing talents...•

She not only had 5 kids, she taught English at a boys’ school and was an Akela, Boy Scouts’ Den Leader.•

She could play the piano, not showy like my Dad but just in her own way.•

She was a superb homemaker, she loved decorating our home and making us feel warm and fuzzy. I think my 3 sisters and I all inherited that from her!•

She took lessons in crochet, ikebana, baking, cooking even when overwhelm was all around her! She was a #bossbabe before there was such a thing! 🥰•

She and my Dad made it a point to take us on picnics, swimming to experience different things nearly every weekend.•

She is the reason for my Wok Star project...I love sharing all I’ve learned from her. •

1️⃣ she showed by example when you feed people with delicious food, they appreciate it. I’m talking about how my Dad would ALWAYS, and I mean EVERYTIME, EVERYDAY shower her with gratitude and compliments! I’ll always remember how his face LIT UP when she presented all his favorite dishes at the hospital when he was dying of cancer! (Getting teary just thinking about this 😥)
2️⃣ she taught me to cook using a cast iron wok on a gas stove.
3️⃣ she taught me to be organized, tidy and methodical in everything we do! #thewayyoudoanythingisthewayyoudoeverything

So so much more, I didn’t realize till I was older how much she and my Dad shaped who I am today! No words could express how lucky and grateful I am for her! #respectandadmiration

We love showing off what Miami has to offer to #nycfoodie friends @archmehra @arkum107 so we took them to our new fav restaurant @vistamiami in @upperbuenavista

Started with Crudo and Greens followed by Wagyu Bavette and Branzino, all perfectly executed! Then upstairs to their beautiful rooftop for music by @solthetribu every other Thursday! They have such unusual music, full of energy and personality, give them some love! Go to #mystory for more! •

I use the analogy to music to describe what a Wok Star is and this group is such a great example! They do their own thing, yeah! Funky, hip and downright good music! •

Oh, and thx to manager for ordering our fav Calamari upstairs! 😉 •
