"Personally, I like a little bit of everything," he said, "A little bit of sweet, acidic and spicy at the same time. That's how I came about this dish. Sort of like what I enjoy eating most."

Zhou also brought a few of his favourite dishes from his restaurant, Heritage Asian Eatery: fried cauliflower (seasoned with a five spice rub), duck rice bowl (breast marinated then roasted) and pork belly bao.

He also showed off a couple relatively new dishes: green onion pancake (with shitake mushrooms and smoked tofu) and golden mantou with matcha condensed milk.
