Best Asian food picks


This week we are turning the globe all the way to Asia! Asia being rich with its beautiful nature, kind people and culture, has all of its secrets bundled up in its delicious cuisine. Now, whether you are out of fresh ideas and love to cook or you enjoy having spicy Asian food for dinner, we got you covered!

But first we wanted to share a sweet and tasty recipe from our Chinese dinner event. The dessert was Tangyuan which are rice balls served with sweet syrup.


  • brown sugar
  • ginger
  • tangyuan – glutinous rice balls

1. Sweet soup base

  • boil water
  • add ginger until the smell of it becomes intense
  • add sugar

2. Tangyuan

  • boil water
  • add the rice balls and stir them so they wouldn’t stick
  • when they start floating, rinse them with cold water put sweet soup base and tangyuan together


Even though this is super easy to make, if you are lazy and prefer to order or would like to go out for dinner, keep reading to find out our best Asian food places in Groningen
