While my gunpla activity came to a screeching halt, my gluttony hobby didn’t. Here’s a 2-ish month worth of backlog of food photos I took during my absence. You’ve been warned…
(Hey, I gotta drop these on you sooner or later)
The best brownies I ever had.
My favorite Thai restaurant near my former university. I haven’t been here in ages.
Oh I love Thai food. Especially spicy Thai food, do you? My favorite here: Pad See Ew!
Crabmeat fried rice. With REAL crabmeat! This plate is definitely going down as my favorite fried rice!
See that chunk of crab meat?! :D
I don’t know my Thai curries though. This is red? green? Penang? Probably yellow ;)
Always nice to try some place new though…
Thai iced tea. wish restaurants would not add so much sugar to it…
Forgot the name… Dragonflies? Basically shrimp wrapped in spring roll wrappers then deep fried.
Pineapple fried rice w/ shrimp.
My other favorite: Pad kee mao.
Made tea eggs at home. Normally, one lets the eggs soak in the tea seasoning with the shells cracked but not peeled. I took the extra step and peeled the eggs so the eggs can soak up all the tea flavor. Sure it is not as aesthetically pleasing but hey, it is still good!
The tea seasoning usually consists of black tea, brown sugar, anise, cinnamon, soy sauce, bits of pepper, five spice and whatever it’s to your preference. Gotta let the eggs bathe in the tea overnight for full flavor!
Now we move on to homemade Vietnamese food (from my friend).
It’s been so long that I forgot the name of the two dishes we had… ^^;
Mix said rolls with rice noodles, veggies, and sauce then proceed to om nom nom!
Can’t go wrong with clams… Just recently, I been having clams for dinner on a weekly basis and I am still not sick of it yet @.@
Easiest. Recipe. Ever. Sake-cooked clams! Toast some garlic, dump the clams, pour some sake, wait till the clams open up, add some peppers and green onion and enjoy!
This was so easy to make, it shouldn’t even be considered cooking… AND it is DELICIOUS!
On to Japanese food…
The gyoza looks good but… maa-maa desu.
Friend treated me to sushi here so that’s all I ordered ^^;
Wish to try some of their nabe dishes sometimes too…
This was my plate actually…
Went all the way out to Hillsboro to try out this izakaya…
Cold beer, hot tea, edamame, cozy Japanese decors, all the works of an izakaya atmosphere…
First up! SABA MISO! First heard this from Kamen Rider Kabuto; Tendou was all over it so I got curious to try it when I saw it on the menu. Now that I have… I’m all over it!
My friend is obsessed with okonomiyaki…
We couldn’t decide for sushi so we let the chef take charge (omakase)
Seared beef. This stuff is raw… pretty much beef sashimi. I liked it :D
Ah yes… bacon wrapped scallops. Bacon goes with everything!
Grilled to perfection… These are huge actually!
Cool shape… I forgot what veggie was this ^^;.
Seafood chahan. My first time having Japanese fried rice. Light yet flavorful… I think I prefer Chinese fried rice more though ^^;.
I think my friend’s homemade curry taste the best even compared to the restaurant’s. You just can’t beat good homemade stuff, you know?
Fact: I never had spinach before until this dish. And it was full of yums. Also cooked by my friend.
It’s nice to have friends who can cook ^^;. Spend less, eat better. That’s it for the photo dump.
I am starving now…
