Sesame oil chicken, one of the most recognisable dish in Taiwan, the most homy and comfort dish ever. Everytime in a rainy and windy day in London, I am thinking to make this dish to warm myself up. The rice wine in it brings you the perfect warmth you need in the cold weather, and you probably will get a little bit tipsy, that’s the best part. Fried egg is the secret weapon, I suddenly found it from one of the Taiwanese local street van, it's my first time having sesame oil chicken with fried egg in it, the egg after soaking into the broth, it's just goes incredibly well together. It's now my favourite part in this dish.

昨天陰森森又下整天的大雨,倫敦的雨其實很不浪漫,風大到真的是會冷到骨子裡,想要喝兩口熱湯讓身體可以瞬間暖起來。這種天氣最適合來做令人懷念的暖胃料理 - 麻油雞!整個廚房還會充滿麻油與米酒的香氣,喝完整個身體便會由內而外的暖起來,而且竟然有一道料理可以讓人吃完帶有一點微醺的感覺,真的是很棒!

麻油雞 + 蛋, 是偶然在台北的一個夜晚,去吃路邊攤的時候發現的超搭法寶,從此愛上了這個完美組合,雖然只是一顆蛋的區別,但是過油煎過的荷包蛋,吸了滿滿的麻油湯汁, 試了你就知道它的強大!
