  1. What a beautiful dish, it's so colorful and looks delightful! I loke lotus root, but it's hard to find it fresh around here. I usually get it packaged in our Asian store.

    For stir-fry, the lotus root must be young, whitish, not the brownish type that's meant for soup.

    Yes, totally agree with you.

    Very simple, just stir-fry only.

    You're right. We have been indulging in a lot of 'wrong' food during this period.

    Yes. Canned. Nowadays there are so many types of this shellfish, e.g. razor clams,pacific clams, limplets, just like abalone. Mine was Vittoria brand, cost RM21 per can. Other brands are Fortune and Besito. Funny, they are only on sale just before CNY.

    Maybe you can find them from those Asian grocers.
