Culinary Q & A with LeQuan

Occupation: I’m a former teacher and now a stay at home mother of two.

What did you eat today?

Breakfast was just a bowl of cereal.
Lunch was two boiled eggs and a nutella and strawberry sandwich with orange juice.
Dinner was steamed salmon with sautéed garlic, ginger and green onions. Plus stir fried spinach with garlic, and white rice. Dessert was strawberries.

What do you never eat?

Snake. I have never and would never eat snake or any other reptile.

What is your personal specialty?

If you’re talking about everyday cooking then it would have to be stir fry. If you’re talking about a specific dish then I’d have to say a Vietnamese tomato based vermicelli soup called Bun Rue, which I actually blogged about here.

Complete this sentence: In my refrigerator, you will always find:

shrimp. I love shrimp.

What is your weekday meal standby?

Some kind of veggie stir fry dish, some kind of fish and white rice.

What is your favourite kitchen item?

These two white bowls from Chintz and Company. They were expensive and I was too cheap to buy more. Haha. When I went back to get more they had discontinued them. They are the perfect sized noodle bowls.

World ends tomorrow. Describe your last meal.

Definitely an abalone dish. I don’t care how it’s made cause you can’t go wrong with abalone. A nice slab of Kobe beef marinated and grilled by my Dad. Stir fried ong choy (Chinese water spinach) for a veggie plate. And for dessert it’d probably have to be crème brûlée.

Where do you eat out most frequently?

The hubby and I like to take the kiddies to Pagolac restaurant in Chinatown almost every weekend cause they like noodle soup.

Where’s the best place to eat in Edmonton?

Ooh, that’s a tough one. According to price and best bang for your buck I’d have to say brunch at The Kitchen in the River Cree Casino. They are super kid friendly and have a wide array of food for
everyone. My hubby loves their lamb and can easily eat his money’s worth just on that.

If you weren’t limited by geography, where and what would you eat?

I would love to go to Japan for their fresh sashimi. I’m a huge seafood fan and I think it tastes best raw and fresh.

  1. What a blast. I had grade 9 grad Friday – cooking for 5-600 parents and students. I am still alive.:) But was too focused last week to get to any readings. This is great. LeQuan – have you ever done a taste test between Kobe beef and Alberta Beef. I have not – but personally think Kobe beef is so overrates because the country is so small – and their ranch land is so sparce – thus the beef is so expensive – therefore sought after. I DO know there is more – theoretically – to the claim that is it exceptional = but, who has compared the two, cut with cut, side by side?
    And, I am thrilled Sharon asked you to do this, too!

  2. Valerie,

    I have never done a taste test between Kobe beef and Alberta beef but would someday love to just to see if Kobe beef really is overrated or if it’s really as great as everyone says it is.

  3. Hey LeQuan & Sharon, this was really interesting. I love hearing about what other people eat. It’s like checking out a person’s fridge for the first time. So interesting…
    I love shrimp too, LeQuan, and all seafood really. I wish people would take better care of the ocean and our water ways. If it wasn’t for pollution, I think seafood is the perfect meat/protein outside of beans… Yeah, I could eat LeQuan’s Yummy Yum forever and a day!

  4. Hey Stella!

    Thank you so much for taking your time to drop by, read, and comment. This means a lot to me cause you truly are one of the most sincere bloggers in the blogosphere!

    Hi Sharon,

    Hope all is well with you. Also, hope you don’t mind that I’m dropping to reply to comments on your blog.

  5. Stella – you’re not alone. I’d be a fridge creeper too. Or, at the grocery store, checking out what people have put in their carts…

    LeQuan – no worries! It’s your Q & A, after all.

  6. Yay! LeQuan is definitely one of my favorite bloggers – thanks for featuring such a great gal, Sharon!

    I’ve only ever had abalone once, and it was delicious!! 🙂
