I like the site. Nice, clean layout. I'm wondering why you have only 5 articles per page, though. Since you are displaying only excerpts, I think 10 would be fine. Also, you have some really great photos on your posts. I'd like to see you display a thumbnail when viewing the home and category pages. Lure us in with the nice pics! :-)
Also, since you cover such a broad range of topics, you might want to consider a home page template that shows the most recent post within each category. Like "Recent from Chinese Food", "Recent from Chinese Knots", etc.
You might want to consider a featured article section at the top of the home page. This would look great with the photos you have and could feature some of your more popular or recent posts.
