Sandwich-making mode on fire@home

image

I’ve been on a sandwich making mode lately, found it somewhat therapeutic in a strange way. Maybe because my cooking skills are under average heh. Coupled with the laziness too. Baking to me is easy, quick, and delicious!

Bought some nice loaves from the old skool bakery at Plaza Damas 1, where the loaves and freshly baked and taste pretty good.

Slapped in the loaf slices, added some bacon chips and cracked in two eggs. Herbs are a must for me. I used the basil shreds bought in Rome, added small dashes of pepper, and shredded them over some old skool parmesan.

Toasted them over 180C degrees for 30minutes. Mean time, while I wait.. John, Harold, Shaw, Root and Bear kept me company!

Ting ting ting. The bell rang. My toast is ready. Bon appetit with Harold & gang!

The french loaf from the Plaza Damas bakery is really quite delicious as well. Made two different renditions, this one added some balance bacon chips, and sliced white mushrooms and rocket salad. Slapped in a slice of butter of course (don’t do justice for a French loaf toasted without butter!)

Wacked some parmesan on the top, drizzled them over with a lil bit of extra virgin just to let the bread cook a little crunchier.

Put in the oven at 160C degrees for about 20mins, and whoah-lah! Happy happy, happened.

Jaya Grocer at Mont Kiara, is an interesting find. Fresh produce, with rather good pricing compared to the other grocers nearby. Maybe because it is a little hidden whilst the rest are located in the community malls like Hartamas Shopping Centre and One Mont Kiara.

The Italian sausages are fresh, soft and they do not have that irky porky smell you get sometimes when you buy old meat. Sliced a couple of it and put them in the middle of the loaf, with some butter and Italian tomato paste, sprinkled over some oregano and popped them into the oven.

Thinking of the next sandwich recipe. Whee!

T’was a redeeming ramen dinner@Ippudo, Bangsar Shopping Centre

I was really grateful to receive a RM30 voucher at the wonderful foodieventure experience with Sharyn & team in Ippudo, Pavilion.

On the last few nights before reaching the expiry date of the voucher, I redeemed  my ramen craving moments at Ippudo, BSC.

Following the description, this ramen is known to be more spicy, just how I like it! Good bye, calories and cholesterol. Power packed with porky broth flavours, creamy, with pungent aroma of the spring onions (a hefty lot was thrown into me bowl), I was in piggy heaven. What oomph-ed the situation further, was the fact that it was raining pretty heavy that night. Purrrrrr-fect for a hot bowl of spicylicious ramen!

image

This one was a little bit on the sweeter end, but the foundation broth was rather similar, just less spicy. After a few spoonfuls, I must say that my tongue grew numb from slurping up to hot soup and both bowls began to taste similar.

Both bowls were RM 20 over. It may seem small, but the dense, fatty, creamy soup could really fill you up quick.

The fried chicken wings were a little pricey in my opinion, cost nearly RM 20. Pretty normal wings.

These hand made gyozas were tinier than the usual but they were really quite yummy. Nicely marinate wrapped minced meat inside and the gyoza dough layer was thin and crispy. Quite enjoyable but I’d would need like 3 platefuls to feel satisfied! 5 pieces for nearly RM20 was really hurting to the pocket lol.

Total damage: about RM40 per head. Without a doubt, they really do make power yummy ramens! But it is slightly pricier than usual meals so I gotta save up a little before my next ramen crave!
