Chiak Chiak Chiak

For those that don’t know, chiak means eat in Hokkien, and that’s all I did the whole weekend, it was a great weekend (^____^), only now it’s over (T_____T)


Friday steak nights are back! Mine was overloaded with mushrooms, I tried a new mushroom sauce recipe, yum yum.


Saturday we tried out the new Vietnamese restaurant ‘What the Pho’ (catchy name) that has been garnering good reviews. Unfortunately, it was a huge disappointment. The pho was lacking in depth, no beefy flavours, lack of those herbs that we love so much in phos. Sigh, disappointment.


The pork chop rice which I thought all Vietnamese restaurants never go wrong with, was very ordinary. I’ve had much better pork chop rice elsewhere. To be fair, the atmosphere and interior of What the Pho was very nice and comfy. The service was excellent too. But the most important component, the food, was somehow lacking.


Homecooking! Finished up the whole pack of tofu with mapo tofu.


Chicken curry or more like vegetable curry because I loaded it with veggies like cabbage, carrots and beancurd sticks. A tad spicy but still good with rice.

I’m going to bake a cheesecake tomorrow, wish me luck!

    I guess the moral of the story is… cook your own food? Bugger 😦

    Also, you’ve reminded me I need to pull my finger out about Laneways tickets!
