My Favorite Asian Food Blogs

Blog, Food

Growing up, Chinese food was dinner every night. So much so that I would get sick of it. Little did I know what I was lucky enough to have. It wasn’t until I had my daughter that I really started cooking. And in the past 3 years or so, she has challenged me to make more Asian food.

As I’ve been learning to cook I have turned to some incredible blogs to help me with recipes and tips. It’s not just about cooking Chinese food. We’ve been going down a path of Korean, Japanese and all other Asian cuisines as well. This post includes a few of our favorites.

The Woks of Life

This is a family blog sharing their home-cooked favs as well as restaurant quality dishes. There are a lot of dishes we’ve made from this website, but here are a couple we make over and over again.

Chinese Spaghetti Bolognese

I know this doesn’t sound very Chinese but it is delicious. It’s super quick and easy to make and is great for those that might not be ready to jump into more traditional Chinese dishes. Again I love the flexibility that you can customize it towards the taste and preferences of your diners.

Taiwanese Beef Noodle Soup

This is a staple in my household. Since I’ve started making this more often I have made the dish more my own, but I started with this recipe. This is our chicken noodle soup and is so comforting. With this dish, you may find you need to find an Asian market but many elements can also be ordered via Amazon since they are shelf stable.

Fried Wontons (Air Fryer Version)

Time to start practicing your dumpling wrapping skills. It always takes me a few to get into the rhythm but then I can move through them pretty quickly. I love this combo of pork and shrimp. It’s so delicious and crunchy and a fun way to start off any meal.

Soy Sauce Eggs

If I could I would always have them in my fridge. The marinade is quick and easy to put together and adds a ton of flavor to your standard hard boiled eggs. I like to make them six at a time and keep them in the fridge for up to a week for a quick and easy snack.

We make them fully hard boiled but you can cook your eggs to whatever consistency you prefer. Great to add to ramen, for a quick snack, fried rice, etc.
