日本大好き - My First Bento Box

 I always envy so much of the bento box you saw on Japanese drama where mum usually make for their kids at school or wife makes it for husband. And on my recent trip to Japan, I bought some bento making books and found it so interesting and tempted me so much into making a bento box. And here I use the most common bento box dish hamburger steak that I just made and some potato salad and other vegetable to make it look nice and delicious.

日本大好き - Juicy Japanese style Hamburger Steak

 I remember I promise to bring back some inspiration I got while I was traveling in Japan and now I am trying my best to show you what I’ve learn so far. One of the funniest thing in Japan is that their restaurant usually only sell one type of cuisine or dish, such as my favourite ramen place, they literally only sell one single flavour and they have shop all over Japan. I found this is quite amazing to be honest, as long as you make the best food of the kind you can totally survive by just selling one thing.

Japan Trip Day 2 Kyoto, Toji and Arashiyama 嵐山

On the 2nd day of the trip, we went to Kyoto - my favorite city in Japan. If you ask me where should you go I would definitely recommended Kyoto to be your first choice.

J’aime le macaron - Peanut Macaron with Salted Caramel and Banana Filling

I haven’t been making any macaron lately because of the holiday, study, work and weather (Yes I blame winter because it just makes you want to lay on the couch and do nothing.). After being lazy for so long, I finally pick up my spatula and start making macaron again on the day I feel like it's going to be a good macaron day. Please also check my other macaron flavor such as Earl Grey, Matcha Red Bean, Pistachio and Raspberry Pistachio.

Oil Poached Salmon with Tomato Salsa and Dill Cream

This dish is one of my most recent success challenges that I have done, as oil poached was a pretty new concept of cooking for me and I was surprise it turn out so well for the first timer. It is a dish request by my mum who went on cruise early this year, she told me about the amazing salmon she had on the cruise was so delicious. For those who had tried to pan-fried or bake a salmon fillet before, you know it always turn out to be hard and dried outside and still not cooked inside.

Japan Trip Day 1 Osaka, Namba 難波

In less than a year, I'm back to Japan for the 5th times woohoo. This was a very random trip just because the flight ticket was too cheap to be true, luckily i found 3 other friends who are interested in going together. So there our trip to Japan Begin.

Super Easy 30 minutes Potato Dill Egg Salad

I’m back in Sydney for more than a week now. Finally settle down and kill my post-holiday blue with another holiday end of this year. I’m pretty sure I am very addicted to travel and you cannot believe how depress I am when I just came back from Japan. Seriously Japan is full of delicious food and fun thing to do where I just want to live there. I shall share my Japan Trip with you soon when I start catch up a bit with my study.
