Made in China

Although I don't know how authentic it is despite the painting on their website. We went there on a Monday evening around 6pm and it was pretty chill, but around 7-8pm it was crowded so make reservations. My friend surprised me on my birthday with a visit here. I've wanted to go since I've heard mixed reviews from friends. Some said it was very uneven and the seasoning was off. While another friend said it was delicious. As always when I'm with my friend A we always order family style and we got recomended to order about 6-8 dishes in order to get full. The waitress was very friendly and pushed us towards some dishes she thought were fabulous.

  • RICE CRACKERS WITH SOY MAYONNAISE 40kr 
  • SMASHED CUCUMBER WITH CHILI OIL AND SESAME & LIME DRESSING 60kr 
  • PORK AND SHRIMP DUMPLINGS WITH CHINESE CHIVES 95kr
  • DEEP FRIED DRUNK CHICKEN WONTON 95kr 
  • CRISPY FRIED TOFU WITH CHILI OIL, BEAN SPROUTS, CILANTRO AND GLASS NOODLES 90kr 
  • SOFT SHELL CRAB WITH CHILI JAM, SOY MAYONNAISE & DAIKON 130kr
  • CARAMEL PORK WITH GREEN APPLE SALAD, LIME AND MINT 125kr
  • SPICY LAMB SOFT BUNS, PEPPERS, OYSTER SAUCE AND PICKLES 120kr 

One of the best things about the restaurant is that it's KRAV which means natural environment, care for animals and social responsibility. 



I thoroughly enjoyed the food. 
And came back 1 1/2 years later for lunch.
Still good. Awful service.

SUSHI BUSHI

I've been eating sushi all over Gotheburg with the mission to find the best one. I always try to take pictures but somehow I forget to upload and write here. So today I found some pictures of my sushi quest a few years ago. Not sure where I am or if I liked it. Enjoy!

Super Sushi


This isn't the best sushi in Gothenburg. but sometimes I crave it. These huge float boats of rice and fish. Maki the size of your fist. The fish slices are not thick but large. It's not inspired or blows your mind but it's not the worst. Reasonable prize for the size of this meal. 75 SEK for 11 large pieces. Yes, you can choose if you want large or small bites. Who would choose large pieces?! That's right, me. Hell yeah!

Spicy Asian Corn Soup

And I say Asian meaning Asian Fusion. I'm not too fond of the get together of different geographical countries. However, this soups is simply divine. I've been busting my balls to find great vegan comfort food. I'm trying to work up a list of vegan go-to-recipes and I think I found one contestant.

Big pan:

1 onion
a few garlic cloves
a bit of fresh ginger
some spices: curry, cumin, coriander, tumeric, salt & pepper, Chinese chili oil
2 cans of corn
1 can of coconut mil

Fry finely chopped onion, garlic and ginger with some oil, curry, cumin, coriander, turmeric and salt. Add Chinese chili oil. When the onions are glossy and sweet add 2 cans of corn. Later on when cooked nicely add a can of coconut milk. I blended the mix until fairly smooth and then filtered half of it since I wanted 1 batch of smoooooooth soup and 1 rustic one.

So sweet and spicy - just like me!

I'm going to serve it with noodles or some rice. I reckon it's going to taste better tomorrow.
Have fun!

YiLi - Sushi, dumplings and other dishes

So my friend really likes the dumplings here but thinks that there aren't any nice sauces for the dumplings. Anyway, we went here to try it out however I ordered some sushi since I was really in the mood for it. My friend had the Pad Thai and of course my friend who recommended this place had the dumplings.





As you can see, there was time to take a pic of the sushi and it wasn't all that. I've definitely had better. YiLi is a place where I will come back to for the hot food. I loved the Pad Thai and the dumplings. I have to try the entire menu. For me I'd really like to see more Asian restaurants and YiLi seems to have a mix of different Asian dishes. They even had Korean food. So I have to come back and try. I'm also in the hunt for great Chinese food so I hope I will not be disappointed.

Grilled Cheese


Nowadays I follow trends religiously. So I'm eating plant-based which is great. But sometimes I lack inspiration and I really hate cooking sometimes. The easier, quicker - the better. So I made this grilled cheese for lunch. I used 2 different kinds of vegan cheese from Astrid och Aporna, Cheezly with cheddar flavour and Jeezly Perfek Pizza. I also added some black pepper for taste and after I fried it in the pan, I halved a garlic clove and rubbed it against the bread. It was so yummy! This will be my go-to food from now on.

Tacos & Tequila revisited

So what else do you do on a Saturday when people are moving towards brunch or a late lunch? My friend and I wanted some beers and perhaps something to eat so we took the tram to TACOS & TEQUILA because it's a safe bet.

This time around we ordered the guac (a bit of each) with homemade nachos - but chose two classic and one with serrano, chili and tomatillo since we were not fond of the third one with almonds. 


While we were snacking on guac and chips our main dishes arrived. We had chosen a fish taco (Fried cod tacos with summer slaw, cucumber, crema and herbsand Grilled shrimp and creamy grits with salsa fresca and corn tortillas. Both were so delicious, but I remember the creamy grits. It was smooth, cheesy and creamy. It was like eating a cheese and cream pudding with some polenta in it.


I'm very fond of this place because the food speak for it self. However the service, and I'm very picky when it comes to service because that's a big part of ordering out. The service needs some work. A lot of work. They're nice and all, but that's not enough. They are not fast when it comes to drinks, restaurants earn a lot of money on drinks so always be around to ask if you want another when you see that your costumers been eye hawking you for another round. I had to do the energetic wave in order to get some attention. It's like you don't exist, even when it comes to the check. It took sucha long time that we had to go into the bar in order to pay. If we were not us we could have done a dine and dash.
