Japanese Western Dinner

CM, my sister and I went to check out the HARBIN ICE LANTERN FESTIVAL. Click the link and check it out. Since we were in that area, we decided to eat around there, at this Japanese Western Restaurant and here are pics of food, ofcourse!

Sea Food Lunch

Lunch with my sister! I've always wanted to try this place, which is only 3 minutes away from home, but CM doesn't like seafood, and I refuse to eat alone, so I never got the chance to eat there. Eating alone is so sad! Food tastes so much better when you have someone to eat with! No...?


Escargot??? Snail?? I don't know what it's called.

Chung King Mansion

Finally got a chance to take my sister to Chung King Mansion for some amazing Indian Food! I've been a faithful customer of Khyber Pass for the past 3 years!

I know not a lot of people order this dish, but it's my favourite which is a spinach dish with cubes of paneer (Indian cheese) in it! This time I asked them to put some Lamb in it as well, it was delicious!

Low Carb Meal

After all those junk we consumed in LA, we decided to go healthy tonight! Kinda spoiled it by the way I cooked Tofu, but it was delicious :) So oh well!


Broccoli Stirfry with Beef


Chinese Veggie in Broth


Japanese Style Tofu Steak

As you might have noticed, I LOVE Tofu! And I usually just eat it uncooked with salad! So I gave this recipe a try, and it was good! So here's the recipe! Enjoy!

RECIPE

Ingredients:
Tofu, Butter (10g), Soy Sauce (3tbs), Sweet Cooking Wine (2ts), Finely Chopped Green Onion, Shredded Seaweed, Japanese Assorted Chilli Pepper (Nanami Togarashi).

Cooking Instructions:
1) Drain water from Tofu, then cut into 8 slices.
2) Melt butter in fry pan in medium heat, then place the tofu evenly on frying pan till golden brown on both sides.
3) Pour soy sauce and sweet cooking wine.
4) When it's cooked, carefully move the tofu onto a plate, and garnish with green onion and shredded seaweed, then sprinkle chilli pepper! Voila!

PS- Another reason why I like cooking at home... this whole meal cost us less than HK$25 for the 2 of us!
