Roti Canai

Galzz..you won't believe it but I made roti canai!

:) My Fijian Indian friend taught me.

Ingredients
1) Approx 2 cupful of flour
2) Approx 4-5 tbs of olive oil
3) Approx 3-4 tbs of salt
4) I added a pinch of baking soda because I don't know how to make it puff up
5) Pour Approx 2.5 cupful of hot boiling water onto mixture (1)-(4) and roll.

Instructions, as per picture. It's the dough making texture and rolling part I find tricky.Note: Before rolling, dip the dough into flour so that it doesn't stick to the board.Enjoy!

Sushi

Well...guess I have to scout for hands-on experience. :)
Sushi is really easy!Something not familiar...once tried out,it's AIYAH,LIKE TAT
ONLY AH!hahahah :)

Take seaweed sheets,put about 3-4 tablespoon of cooked rice,spread it out,
put crabstick,cucumber,spread mayonnaise/thousand island/wasabi...and
wrap it around using the bamboo thingy.Cut the edges and then start chewing!
If the seaweed sheets don't stick,just tap with water and put in the fridge.
But don't leave it overnight in the fridge,coz when I eat it this morning,
the rice hardened....

The rice, I use olive oil to mix together,I heard using vinegar tastes even better.
And, sprinkle sesame seed is good too!

But,in short,easy-to-make and easy-to-bring to work for LUNCH!

Hideki Bangsar

I had a strange craving. I want to eat "wasabi".
Shin suggested Hideki, BUT thats alot to pay for a little wasabi.

A typical quiet Japanese restaurant, invited us in with a wooden Japanese bridge with a small stretch of wooden planks and rocks.. that gave the impression of a Japanese garden. Only it lacked colourful flowers..?

The main attractive features were the serene, and nice plates, saucers , cups and bowls.Mostly made of pottery, very unique.


Lunch started off with this picture the Plate.
Then with a trail of orders warm Ebi Maemee and dash of salt, soft shell crabs, the likes but in sushi , chawan mushi, and a whole chopping board full of sushi with side dishes ( miso soup and fruits) :



And ended off here: The sushi which put me into misery of indigestion for the past 4 hours..This is the rawest piece from the whole dish.. There were more pieces on this chopping board, only again have forgotten to take the pictures "Before" eating...


to contact :

Hideki Japanese restaurant

One Bangsar 63B, Jalan Ara Bangsar Baru, 59100 Kuala Lumpur.

tel: (603)2282 1111 ,fax: (603)2282 5959

* Lunch set meal at RM20++

Oh~ Just so yummy!


Can you believe it... I am eating again. Yes and my width is expanding while my height remain constant. That's a very bad sign. Yes yes yes.. it is a very bad sign. Almost everyone I know says it behind my back... "oh she has put on lots of weight"

That is just so crazeee... but I won't blame them. I love to eat so.. well I gotta bear the consequences. AND yes.. I hate people who eat a lot yet they don't gain weight. Sigh... they give me tensions.

Okay.. I divert too much away from my intentions of this entry. I went to dinner with my mum and sis nearby ampang. Ermmm.. this shop call "Suzi's Corner" nearby Flamingo. Hemm.. they have loads of stuff to eat here. But well, I must say, I find that their satay daging is very nice. It's got that tender yet juicy feel to it. Hemmm.... yummy~


The otak-otak... okay.. I'm rather picky when it comes to food.. but I do eat all of them (that's the pathetic and weird part). I'm not sure if this is the first time I eat it hot.. but it does taste good. Yes.. I actually never liked otak-otak.. coz it gives me this weird aftertaste. Hemmm.. I gotta eat some other hot otak-otak from other place.. to be sure the otak-otak here is good.

The steak... I don't think I need to say much about it. The picture already tells it all. Yummm... for the price (RM26), it does taste good. Yes.. The portion is quite big, yeah... big eater like me can't finish. *Burpz* *rub my tummy*
