At Thai restaurants, do they coat the tofu in egg before frying/sauteeing?

I went to a Thai Restaurant last night and I was eating the tofu when all the sudden I realized it had a strange coating. Could this be egg? Hopefully it’s just a flour-based coating but I can’t be sure.

Best bet is to ask when you order things. Saying you’re vegan might not register to some people or they mightn’t care and just say there is no fish/egg in the dish. If you say you are allergic to fish and egg products however they’ll tell you the truth.

Are restaurants usually busy during the holidays?

I work at a Korean Restaurant, and we get a lot of families and businessmen as customers.. I was wondering- during the holidays, specifically Christmas Eve (today), New Year’s Eve, and New Year’s Day, do you think we’ll be getting a lot of customers? Do people typically go out to eat on these days?

They aren’t usually full some people do but the tradition is to stay at home with Family but if you are a really good place to eat watch out plates will be piling over in the sink… icon smile Are restaurants usually busy during the holidays?

How is chinese restaurant food prepared?

I was curious of how those standard Chinese Restaurants that carry the same stuff prepare there food. Do they actually cook it from scratch? Or like heat it up or something.

My dad has a Chinese restaurant when I was little. I was in the kitchen the whole time whenever a costumer orders they get every thing needed from a big fridge and got the needed sauces from a shelf then the cook it in a wok which looks like a really big metal pan thing lol easier if you just google it. Nothing is heated up from remains so all the food is fresh and whatever is not used ex: using half a chicken for a dish. Goes right to the fridge before the meal is cook. I’m not sure if all restaurants do that.

Our Favorite Korean Restaurant | Life in Korea | Anseong, South Korea

0 Our Favorite Korean Restaurant | Life in Korea | Anseong, South KoreaIn this travel video we visit our favorite Korean Restaurant in Sam’s small neighbourhood in Anseong, South Korea. The place is just a humble hole in the wall style of family restaurant in the basement of small commercial building. Located next to a Korean butcher shop and Korean grocery store we didn’t even know the name of the restaurant until we discovered it on a sideboard hanging from the roof.

For our lunch we are treated to a delicious meal of bibimbap (Doltsot Bibimbap – Korean stone pot mixed rice) and Soon Dubu Jigae – a tofu based soup/stew. We show you what it is like to eat at a Korean traditional restaurant with no chairs. The side dishes were amazing and we ended up being completed stuffed. As per usual we act silly with plenty of humorous moments.

This video is from our Life in Korea series.

I was born in New Zealand and studied Japanese at Victoria University before coming to Japan. I currently work as an English Instructor at ECC Kokusai School of Foreign Languages in Osaka. When I first came over I got homesick but I made good Japanese friends and learnt what warm people they can be. My new friends introduced me to places of beautiful nature. So far, I’ve visited Kobe, Himeji, Kyoto, Nara, Shirahama, Okayama, Hiroshima and Kochi and they were all great.

I’m from China. My mother studied translating in Japan and, through that influence, I also became interested in the country. I first came to Japan as an exchange student in my first year of university. I’m currently studying marketing at Kansai Gakuin University. I absolutely love the Kansai region. The people are friendly and interesting. The food in Kansai is also very delicious; Kobe beef, Osaka takoyaki, the ramen in Wakayama but to name a few.
