a #matcha egg tart from @havencafeny. its composed of a flaky crust , earthy matcha custard , and finished off with a generous dusting of powdered sugar. what a unique twist on a classic Chinese pastry i’ve eaten since i was a kid ☺️.

Small shopfront with 4 tables for dining in. Most customers order bbq to go. They also have various prepared dishes such as fried rice , soy chicken wings , fried tofu etc that they sell by the pound. Service is unfriendly but you’re there for the roast duck旧金山 祥兴烧腊小馆 . . 📍: 2339 Noriega St San Francisco . . 📷: @chinesefoodobsession . . . . . . . . . . #美食 #noodleworship #sfchinatown #chinesenyc #sffoodies #sffood #chinesefood #sfeats #nycchinatown #nycfoodie #noodlesoup #asian #noodle #chowmein #yumcha #gyoza #asianfood #asiancooking #asiancuisine #dumplings #noodles   #roastduck #asianfood #asianfoodlover #taipeifoodie #sffoodies #taiwanfoodie #bayareafoodie #湾区 #旧金山

Shrimp fried rice ☺️☺️☺️ the wok hei (smoky taste from the wok being aged/used so much) is key which is why I could never make it taste the same at home. . 📍: 67 Mott st New York . . 📷: @chinesefoodobsession . . . . . . . . . . #美食 #friedrice #rice #chinesenyc #sffoodies #sffood #chinesefood #sfeats #nycchinatown #nycfoodie #noodlesoup #asian #noodle #dimsum #yumcha #gyoza #asianfood #asiancooking #asiancuisine #dumplings #noodles   #brunch #asianfood #asianfoodlover #taipeifoodie #sffoodies #taiwanfoodie #bayareafoodie #湾区 #旧金山 #shrimpfriedrice #chinatown

I got a few questions about what char siu is so I thought I’d do a post. It’s the (Cantonese) pronunciation of 叉烧 or cha shao in Mandarin , which literally translates to fork grill/bbq. It’s a bbq pork (can also be done with pork ribs - see the ones on the top portion of the photo) and has a sweet and savory , sticky glaze. Not smoky like southern bbq. My favorite kind of bbq. This is just my interpretation and if you want a more comprehensive view , I’m sure you know where to search 👉🏻. . . 📷: @chinesefoodobsession . . . . . . . . . . #美食 #asians #chinese #charsiu #dandannoodles #chinesenyc #sffoodies #sffood #chinesefood #sfeats #nycchinatown #nycfoodie #noodlesoup #asian #noodle #dimsum #yumcha #gyoza #asianfood #asiancooking #asiancuisine #dumplings #noodles #roastduck #asianfoodlover #taipeifoodie #sffoodies #taiwanfoodie #bayareafoodie #湾区 #旧金山
