Homecook: Bibimbap & tokbokki

We love Korean food.
But not the BBQ meat part, though.
Maybe it's because of the spiciness and amount of vegetables used in their cuisine.

We bought the chilli paste to cook tokbokki at home.
Then I found this freshly made tokbokki / Korean rice cake at a Korean mart in Sri Hartamas.

 It was super nice, soft yet springy!
No weird smell or harder texture in the centre.
Really a lot nicer than the factory-packed one in the chiller.

Then one night fy wanna make bibimbap.
We put in any vegetables left in the fridge, also added in sesame and the chilli paste.

 Simply mix everything up.

Ready to serve!
It's hard not to have a thumb up for this~ :)

Bread for lunch

Haze has come to PJ already.
Luckily we had postponed our hi-tea in city centre today.
Staying at home would be a better choice.

My lunch on this hazy day.
Pain de campagne from Sun Moulin on top; bottom one is flaxseed & sunflower seed bread by SimpleTaste Artisan Bakery.
Both toasted with egg.

That's organic cherry tomatoes with Kewpie sesame soy sauce.

More from Coffee Famille

I'm still visiting them weekly. :)

Countless visits already, but this is my first espresso there.

 Quite crowded on a Saturday evening.

 Aloha with loads of macadamia nuts and pineapple bits.
Macadamia fans would definitely love this!

 Avocado seed growing in a glass jar with water.

Let's see how long it takes to grow.
So please shower some love on it when you're there. :)

Also first time trying affogato.

Kampua @Joy Cafe, Sarikei town

According to N the Sarikeian , this is the best kampua to him in Sarikei town.
I can't judge as this is my only bowl of kampua for the whole trip.
But the noodles is quite nice, springy and no floury texture.
I wish there's vegetables with it, lol.

Pineapple curry

I was at friend's house in Sarawak last week, and his mom let us bring home their home grown pineapples.
According to him, Sarawak pineapple especially from Sarikei is quite popular and many people comes to get it here.

I brought it home and fy suggested to make curry.

The pineapple is indeed sweet and the curry is delicious!

Eating organic

I'm strongly opposed to the thought that 'organic food is tasteless' and some said it should be bland. I'm not sure where's on earth did they get that idea.

When I had the chance of visiting an organic farm last year, the farmer let us eat the okra freshly plucked from the plant. It's sweet and crunchy!
And I tried eating this vege cooked in boiled water and without any seasoning, it's sweet too!

The Brew Culture, Plaza Damas 3

I was there, like finally.
The whole cafe is a mix of cuteness and coolness, with a lot of murals and handmade furniture.
I believe this place could easily win adults' as well as kids' hearts over for the decor.

I've seen this mural from friends' photos, but still couldn't contain my excitement when I saw this in real.
So cute, right?

The counter, the bosses and the collection.

PlateCulture -Mauritian homecook dinner

Thanks to PlateCulture for the invitation, I had the chance to enjoy Mauritian home cook dinner in KL city!

It was a raining evening. While I was on my way to the host's place, I was also busy thinking about Mauritian food. I wonder how it's like as I never had before.

Our host, Shiksa, is staying in Bangsar.
When we reached at her place, she's still preparing food.
I had a peek inside her kitchen- She's working on a bowl of batter for fritter and there's a plate of mixed vegetables on the table. I thought they are quite like Asian food.
The pretty Mauritian host, Shiksa, busy preparing homecook meal for us.
