The Kitchen Table Restaurant & Bakery, Damansara Kim

I heard about its opening last month but couldn't find a good time to visit.
So when JH suggested to come here for meet-up, I'm all glad to oblige! 

So nice that they have planter box full of ingredients for the kitchen. :)

Second loaf of bread from pre-fermented dough

Since I have leftover pre-fermented dough, so not to waste them I made another loaf.

This time is a little different from the first one as it didn't rise as much. However, the outer skin is much more harder and crunchier but still soft inside.

I named it ‘外表坚强,内在柔软’. XD

(Making bread is such an obsession to me right now)

Bread made from homemade yeast water

3 cheers for the success!

I tried to make yeast water and I made pre-fermented dough with yeast water+all purpose flour.

DIY yeast

I've been baking bread quite often recently, so I thought maybe I should challenge myself to make my own yeast.

So I did research online and found out this yeast water thing.
It's quite easy but takes time.

The easiest is using fruits, such as raisin.
 I couldn't get organic raisin, so I used blackcurrant instead.
Just soak them inside filtered water inside a glass jar.

After 2 days, they looked like this.

On the 4th or 5th day, all the fruits will afloat and producing bubbles (releasing gas I suppose).
So it's considered done then I put the jar into the fridge until when I need to use it to make dough.

I read that I should take the jar out from the fridge 1 hour before making the pre-fermented dough.
I'm still trying on that, and once I successfully made the bread out of this method, I shall share. 

Wish me luck! ;)

Instant Papadam

I bought this in Kathmandu, Nepal 3 months ago, but I just found it on my kitchen shelf a few days ago. XD
We pan fried it without oil.

It was quite salty, but not as spicy as we thought it could be.

Feeka Coffee Roasters. Jalan Mesui KL

On a few visits to Feeka.
It's one of the many cafes in town that I think with nice ambiance and great coffee.

Coconut House, Jaya One

I've been frequenting this cafe twice this month after my meeting in Jaya One.
The food has been on consistent (good) quality at this latest place.
(They were at various places before, and the quality was swinging up and down)

Another favourite place of mine run by artist. (Like Cozy in the Rocket)

Cozy in the rocket, Georgetown Penang

This is still one of my favourite cafe/hangout place in Georgetown.

I enjoy the ambiance and the food.
