I'm Brazilian and totally in love with Chinese cuisine. Chinese restaurants and take outs are quite common in here, particularlly in the city where I live. We have awesome Chinese restaurants and the usually starch laded take outs.
However, Chinese ingredients are only found in one supplier in the Asiatic neighborhood, but this shop carries just about everything necessary to make Chinese meals at home, include my fave lop cheong. My visits to that store are the apex of my week!
This week I decided to try again a Joong/Jongzi after some disappointments in the past. I had a great surprise. Those were just made like in Leungs pictorial found in this forum. The same ingredients, very rich and very tasty. Just perfect!
I thought I should share how much I enjoy to make my own Chinese meals as well as my findings around here.
