Fish wins the 2nd chance challenge!
What’s this 2nd chance thing? – Simple. Our rule is to always give everything a 2nd chance before condemning it till the end.
We went to Ichiban Boshi once before at TGV. I didn’t like it and Fish loved it. So, today, with Shi Hui, we gave it a 2nd chance. It was a rushed dinner though, cause we sat down at ard 1730 but had a movie (STAR TREK!) to watch at 1845.
AND! THE FINAL VERDICT: DEFINITELY GOING BACK FOR MORE!
These are what we ate.
Fish ate the Aburi Chashu Ramen. Shi Hui ate the Tempura Udon. I ate the Yakisoba Omelette. The ramen was good. “Thick, juicy slices of tender marinated pork are grilled under a hot flame and placed on our famous ramen. How can you resist?” – From the Ichiban Boshi website.
But, i think my favourite has to be the Yakisoba Omelette. I really liked it.
The only problems there are that: 1. Only accept cash 2. Really long queues and waiting time.
Still, it is really good and worth the wait!
A few days ago, i cooked a home cooked meal – me and Fish rather. I was really happy with it. It was the first time we had proper cooked veggies.
The chicken you see on the top left hand corner, is really simple. I just took chicken breasts, rub smoked paprika, salt and pepper and grilled it. The bottom left hand corner is (to me) the highlight!
It was just simple button mushrooms. I bought small mushrooms so it was better to slice it into half or quartered – if not they shrink by too much. I fry mushrooms simply, just fry it and add soya sauce and it tastes beautiful on its own. However, a few days ago, we bought Japanese cooking sake. We added a good amount of it and it totally changes the taste. It made the dish smell really good and gave the mushrooms a very nice slight sweetness. This is a wayy simple way of cooking mushrooms and i will 100% do it again and again. Very good way to use up mushrooms that have been lying around in the fridge and you don’t know what to do with it. =)
Have you guys had great dinners this week?
