Dishes with McAsiaMart


Hello AMW Friends!  How have you been?  I’ve seen a lot of you are cooking more during the pandemic and I find myself cooking way more than before because I cook not only for my family but also for my in-laws who live a couple of houses away!  

That said, I replenish cooking ingredients on a monthly basis because I finish them up so fast!  Thankfully, E-commerce thrived the past years and I am lucky enough to purchase Asian ingredients online as opposed to going to Ongpin or Aranque for that.  You all know I’ve been shopping A LOT online as I share my good finds on my Instagram Stories just like this one.  And no, you don’t have to cook Chinese dishes only for Chinese New Years, you can do so ANYTIME of the year!
