1updesignlab My mother is teaching me (and my wife) her recipes for various dumplings; have a ways to go before I can replicate her dough mixture, but I got the heat control part down. These are #shaobing, a thicker skinned #panseared #dumpling with #pork filling. #foodie #foodstagram #foodgasm #chinesefood 1d

1updesignlab Watching in awe as "The Noodle Man" works his magic; people line up 10-15 deep to buy his #panfried #noodles (haven't been added yet), which are cooked to order one at a time so be prepared to wait. #Chinesefood #foodie #foodporn #veggies #foodstagram #Nanchang #wok 2d

1updesignlab I've had #baozi everywhere, including the famous #Goubuli version in Tianjin, but to me, the ones at #Jiangying in #Nanchang (#Jiangxi) are the best I've EVER tried. Taste amazing, perfectly spongy #dough, and an awesome #juicy #pork filling, you can taste the fragrant cooking wine they mixed in. #Chinesefood #dumpling #foodie #foodporn #foodstagram 5d

1updesignlab #Tonkatsu at #Inaba #Wako; if I looked at the pictogram correctly, they use #Kurobata #pigs from #Kyushu - anyways, #fried to #perfection! I can't wait to go back. #Tokyo #pork #Japanesefood #foodie #foodpix #foodgasm #foodporn 6d

1updesignlab #Sony #ZX1 #Walkman at #BicCamera in #Ikebukuro; really clean sound - not sure where I'd get the requisite hires audio files but it is a neat concept. Makes you wonder what Apple could have done with an audiophile IPod. #portableaudio #audiophile 1w

1updesignlab #nofilter shot of the #Maguro at #Sushi #Fukusuke in #Shinjuku. The texture and taste were both on point - not a "fancy" joint, but Fukusuke owns a wholesale operation at Tsukiji so they always get good quality fish and prices aren't crazy, as evidenced by the total lack of foreign tourists. #foodie #foodporn #foodstagram #Tokyo #goodeats 1w

1updesignlab This encapsulates everything I love about #Japan; the #attentiontodetail permeates every aspect of their daily life. The #applepie I bought at #TakanoCake was boxed with ice packs to keep it from getting mushy. Who the hell does this?! #Pie #foodie #foodstagram #dessert #japanese 1w

1updesignlab Had to enlighten my son @_rolandkeng_ on some #Japanese #desserts - #TakanoCake is a #Tokyo institution, I love everything they make, but their #applepie is to die for; wonderful #crust and perfectly spiced #apples. #foodie #foodgasm #foodporn #foodstagram #dessert #pie 2w
