#FMWAsianBreakfast is back in a big way this season. Last week we talked about Beijing’s jianbing, this week we’re onto Taiwanese breakfast! Chef Edward Huang of Zai Lai, a home-style Taiwanese concept in Columbus Circle’s Turnstyle Market, takes us through this iconic Taiwanese meal.
On this week’s episode, we talk about one of the oldest and most popular street food items in China–jianbing. It’s a crispy and savory crepe packed with delicious flavors, textures, and color.
Brian Goldberg, Founder of Mr. Bing, first fell in love with jianbing when he studied Chinese in Beijing in the late 90s; he bought jianbing everyday outside of his school from a nice lady who made them fresh on the back of a bicycle cart. Learn about this tasty treat and its journey to NYC.
Jordan Andino is the Chef/Owner of Filipino Tacqueria, 2nd City. He joins Lynda and Iris on the first episode of our Fall Season to explain what Filipino breakfast looks like (mmm…longanisa). They also discuss his brand new Cooking Channel show–“Late Nite Eats”!
JT Vuong and George Padilla of YUJI Ramen are back by popular demand! But this time, Lynda and Iris talk to JT and George about Japanese breakfast and the Okonomi side of what they do, in another installment of our #FMWAsianBreakfast Series.
Tony Chan, General Manager of Tim Ho Wan, joins Lynda and Iris on the show to tell the story of Tim Ho Wan, which is known as the world’s most affordable Michelin-starred restaurant. They talk about the difference between dim sum culture in the East and West, what sets Tim Ho Wan apart, and the future of this traditional Cantonese cuisine.
In Feast Meets West’s first installment of the “Asian Breakfast Series”, Lynda and Iris discuss why Asian breakfast hasn’t quite yet taken off in the US. Chef Yo of seasonal Thai restaurant, Pinto Garden, joins them in the studio to shed some light on what breakfast looks like in Thailand, and to talk about Pinto Garden’s new Thai-inspired brunch menu.
