At Lingr in St. Petersburg, Norwegian and Chinese flavors converge and harmonize

ST. PETERSBURG — If there’s one dish that perfectly encapsulates the ethos of Lingr, chef Jeffrey Jew’s ambitious new restaurant, it’s probably the salt and pepper fish cakes.

Somewhere in between a Norwegian fiskeboller and the curried fish balls you’d find on a Hong Kong street food cart, the golf ball-sized orbs are plump with Faroe Island salmon and flavored with white pepper and Sichuan peppercorns.

So, this is a fusion restaurant, right? Sort of. Not exactly.

These 2 Bellevue neighborhoods are packed with great Asian food options. Here are 3 great places to try

Downtown Bellevue is packed with great Asian restaurants, with famous international chains like Haidilao, Din Tai Fung and The Dolar Shop set amid high-rise office buildings and apartments.

So, if you’re dining in the area, you can stock your pantry, too. I bought some soy-marinated eggs and suimi yacai (Sichuan pickled mustard stems) from Asian Family Market and some chatpata

The quantity of shortening frightened me and I needed to cut down on prep time so I made an adaptation of this recipe utilizing a white cake mix. I used zests as directed but added a tablespoon of lime juice orange essence and lemon extract for an extra punch of flavor. The lime layer turned out to be essentially the most mild in flavor and the orange got here out tasting fairly artificial. I … Read More
