Curry Puff Day

25/04/2016

What an amazing day. Three sets of curry puff from three different members of staff in one morning. image

It’s kinda fun.

It also shows our similar tastebuds Haha!

What’s more, two were purchased from the same shop!

Don’t you just love such folk?!

 

Edible Scales

25/04/2016

Who would have thought such things existed for fresh-water fish? I certainly never knew!

We were told that this particular fish, the Empura, is highly prized and very expensive. Hubby was gifted one and so we decided to take it to a restaurant to check it out.

When we showed it to the chefs, they immediately recognised it! Then they wanted to charge us extra to cook it! Hubby decided to walk away, and I joined him, grumbling as we did. That got the manager on duty worried because there were other guests. Good tactic eh?

Next thing you know, we got a good price for it and settled down with some friends to wait for it.

The wait was certainly worth it!

The fish was sooooo nice! You have to taste it to know what I mean. The flesh melts in your mouth! The scales are nice to eat – they have an unusual texture – firm yet not rubbery. Yummy…. The simple steamed as is was the perfect way to cook it, bringing out the full flavours of the fish. Well done chefs!

I am now waiting for Hubby to be gifted with another … I hope it will be as soon as possible!
