I think the first step to cooking like a local is shopping for groceries like a local!

It's something I myself have been lazy with, but getting better about shopping for veggies at the local wet market. It's a lot cheaper than ParknShop.

I'm a novice cook, so I just stick to basic chicken/beef stir frys, rice noodles combos etc.
