  • Beef chili momos from Peace Cafe and Restaurant: "A virtue of adding seasoning while stir-frying, and not at the table, is that the dumplings are more thoroughly imbued with chilli heat." [Eating in Translation]
  • A Sri Lankan lunch buffet from Banana Leaf is "almost like Indian food, but not so spicy." [Me So Hungry]
  • Scallop crudo with pistachios from ABC Kitchen: "One bite's fresh and citrusy, the next gets a little heat from the pepper. The nuts give the whole thing texture." [Fork in the Road]
