I love food and I've been taking shitty photos of food for the past month. I'm just going to post them up here. It'll be fun (to me).
This is an ekmek. It's this beautiful Greek dessert. I can't even begin to describe how it tastes. There are layers of baklava, noodle-like pastry, custard and cream. It's very rich so I didn't finish it.
My partner just moved into a new suburb and we were exploring one of the main streets. We stopped at this little cafe and died due to the awesomeness that entered our mouths. This was a beef foccacia. It was more like a really good steak sandwich. So delicious. The actually grilled cheese on the bread, then added the steak, tomato and lettuce. That's pretty amazing, hey?
After lunch we moved onto cake. This was what my partner ordered. Some kind of orange and coconut cake. It was kind of hard but oddly moist. It did taste a bit like it was made a few days ago.
I couldn't resist this. But it wasn't that good. Too sweet and obviously made a few days ago.
This was my attempt at making roti. It didn't work. It looks like a papadum! I think I needed to use more oil than water because it turned out really dry and flour-y.
The curry I made to accompany it was sensational. Holy fuck it was amazing. I added potato, mushrooms and chicken. It wasn't spice but it was just full of flavour and coconut goodness.
This beautiful thing is a pomegranate. It's very tasty but each pulp has some kind of woody bit in it so that was a bit disappointing. I thought I could just bite the little bits and they'd pop and ooze tangy juice. Oh, well.
I went to China Bar Signature buffet and it was quite good. They had delicious yum cha dim sums, peking duck, sushi and sashimi, delicious curry, and fancy dessert. I have to say, dessert was a let down, although I do believe it was because we ate late and so the all the good desserts were taken and we were left with the duds. That green mousse was disgusting. I don't even know what it is.
I made some soup noodles one day and I am quite pleased with it because I used a lot of veggies in it. There's carrot and spinach plus some tofu cakes. It was yummy as.
I've been very keen to make teh tarik, which is Malaysian "pull tea". It's just tea and condensed milk that has been "pull". You get two cups and you just pour the tea into the other cup until it gets all frothy. I started off with one cup, but spilled a lot so have only half a cup left. Then I gave half to my mum so that was how much I was left with.
My partner and I went to this Japenese restaurant in Fitzroy called Peko Peko. It's does really homey Japanese meals that are of really good quality and so filling. There's something really filling about them. This was what my partner ordered. It's some kind chilli chicken dish that was so tasty.
I had the tofu soba noodle soup. Also very tasty. Very rich with sesame flavour.
We also had these chicken gyozas to start. They had tiny bits of dried mushroom in them and those shrooms really added an earthy and awesome flavour to it. It was delish.
