CHINESE SOUP FOR BACK PAIN RECIPE 社仲巴戟豬尾骨燉湯

CHINESE SOUP FOR BACK PAIN RECIPE 社仲巴戟豬尾骨燉湯

社仲巴戟豬尾骨燉湯 CHINESE SOUP FOR BACK PAIN RECIPE NOMSS FOOD BLOG VANCOUVER

One of my favorite past time is making Chinese soup. I love the nourishing and medicinal aspect of healing the body from within. Postpartum Me includes a lot of back pain, weak knees and tender tendons. This Chinese soup recipe is perfect for those suffering with nagging chronic back pains.

This soup is neutral and suitable for most people. While it carries a subtle bitter taste from Codonopsis Pilosula (aka poor man’s ginseng) it is still easy to drink.

 

The soup colour has a dark color from the black bean and Morinda officinalis / Indian Mulberry.

I do not suggest eating the meat from the pork bones after the soup is ready unlike a those from the Green Radish and Carrot with Pork Bone Soup Recipe 青紅蘿蔔豬骨湯.

Health Benefits of Chinese Herbs

 

社仲 Eucommia ulmoides – enhance bones strength and body muscles, reduce fattiness, enhance energy metabolism and antioxidants

巴戟 Morinda officinalis / Indian Mulberry – enhances libido because it improves kidney functions. Useful to treat urinary incontinence, female infertility due to cold uterus, pain and numbness because of wind-cold, soreness and weakness of low back and knee, and rheumatism etc.

党参 Codonopsis pilosula – enhance immunity, dilate blood vessels, lower blood pressure, improve microcirculation, enhance hematopoietic function, and so on.

I love using my OXO fat separator! It has a capacity for 4-cup/900mL. Pour the soup into the separator, and watch the fat rise to the top while soup settles to the bottom. The heat resistant strainer catches unwanted bits, and the stopper prevents fat from rising to the top of the spout. Once the soup has settled, remove the strainer and the stopper and pour out perfect clear soup. A shield prevents the gravy from spilling over the top of the separator, instead of through the spout. And it is dishwasher safe! This is the best fat separator I’ve purchased lately!

BANTER ROOM VANCOUVER | YALETOWN

BANTER ROOM VANCOUVER | YALETOWN

Banter Room is one of the newest restaurants in Yaletown between Nelson and Helmcken Street – next to The Greek By Anatoli. This restaurant offers comfort food as well as healthy options their signature deluxe acai bowl.
They have a spacious patio and a lounge seating inside. We came on a typical weekday when lunch was quiet.

BANTER ROOM YALETOWN NOMSS FOOD BLOG VANCOUVERLobster Avocado Toast 18: sourdough, avocado, lobster mango salsa, topped with arugula and balsamic reduction drizzle. The combination of mango salsa and balsamic reduction does not go well with the avocado toast. I also wish they had fanned out their avocado instead of it mashed. If I were to be picky I also wished they had not diced up the lobster.

Nicoise Salad 13: added seared ahi tuna +8. mixed greens, tomatoes, olives, peppers, artichoke hearts, corn, hard boiled egg, feta, white balsamic dressing. The ingredients are were fresh and I would definitely order this again.

 

 

BANTER ROOM YALETOWN NOMSS FOOD BLOG VANCOUVER

Spiced Onion Rings 5: we ordered a side of my favourite onion rings. I liked the extra crispy skin. It is not greasy and has a slight spiciness. It comes with a side of aioli sauce.

 

Unfortunately with so many food options nearby, we most likely would not return. Service is spotty and the waitresses are too cool to serve you. Ours at least did not bother asking us how the food was or to refill our water.

Luckily, The Juice Truck is across the street.

Miku Vancouver | Aburi Kaiseki Dinner

Miku Vancouver | Aburi Kaiseki Dinner

Miku at Coal Harbour waterfront is one of my favourite Japanese restaurant in Vancouver. It is located next to Canada Place and has wonderful views – you can watch the sunset over the North Shores. To celebrate our third wedding anniversary, Dave and I wanted to indulge in their omakase menu – Aburi Kaiseki Dinner.

 

Kaiseki menu is only available during dinner service. There are three choices of  Shokai (zensai, entree, signature sushi and dessert) $68 per person, Kaisen (six course chef’s tasting menu) $88 per person and Aburi (unique multi-course experience with premium and seasonal ingredients) $135 per person. Traditional Kaiseki Ryori incorporates region’s food culture and is presented in unique Arita plateware from Kyushu, Japan.

 

To start the evening we savoured a glass of Riesling while watching the thunderstorm – after all it is September in Vancouver.

Amuse Bouche: croquette

Aburi Sashimi: trio selection of flame seared salmon, scallop and tuna with signature sauces.

 

Appetizer: Presented in a beautiful bento box from Arita plateware that is so Instagram worthy. Seven seasonal bite size appetizers that consists of fresh oysters (or substitution for clams), Salt Spring mussels with mignonette and tiger prawn cocktail. The bottom layer includes octopus ceviche, pan seared Hakkaido scallop, beef carpaccio, and ahi tuna.

 

Lobster Tail: The third course consists of half lobster table grilled with tomato chili sauce served with seasonal vegetables.

 

Wagyu Beef: tender and cooked perfectly medium rare with a dash of pink Himalayan salt. Served with seasonal greens.

 

Miku’s Signature Sushi: The fifth course includes an assortment of Aburi nigiri, rolls (Miku roll and Red Wave Roll) and oshi sushi (salmon, ebi). Before ending the evening with dessert, you have the option to add more food a la carte. For us, it was the perfect amount. Besides we wanted to get ice cream afterwards…

 

Black Forest Tiramisu with Vanilla Bean ice cream. This dessert was airy, light and not too sweet. Just the way I like it.

 

If you are looking for an omakase dinner service with an amazing view. I highly recommend the Aburi Kaiseki dinner from Miku.

Grand River Seafood Restaurant Coquitlam | 濠江尚品海鮮酒家

Grand River Seafood Restaurant Coquitlam | 濠江尚品海鮮酒家

Grand River Seafood Restaurant 濠江尚品海鮮酒家 is a Chinese restaurant located in Coquitlam (next to Silvercity Cineplex Cinemas) on 100 Schoolhouse Street. This is another humble restaurant with minimal decor. This restaurant offers dim sum lunch service as well as seafood dinner (set menus and combos available). We’ve been here several times and consistency is an issue. Food quality is not always up to par.

 

Fish slice congee: watery and not a lot of ingredients. The congee base is not pillowy like Neptune Wonton and does not have the fresh fish taste like Eastern Pearl in Port Coquitlam.

 

Dim Sum option here at Grand River is not bad however. There are a lot of choices – some other Chinese restaurants in Tri-Cities does not have.

 

Deep Fried Bean Curd Shrimp Roll

 

Rice Roll with Chinese Donut and Shrimp Paste.

 

Three Mushroom Rice Rolls

 

Shrimp Dumplings

 

Curry Baby Octopus

 

Steamed Bean Curd Roll

 

Pineapple Bun BBQ Pork Bun

 

Deep Fried Sesame Balls: This is one of my favorite desserts here.

 

Not to confuse you, not Coquitlam has a Chinese restaurants all with the name “Grand”.
