Xuan Feng Ramen Restaurant | Krystal Point, Penang

If talk about my favourite Japanese food, ramen is one of them, especially tonkotsu ramen, tan tan ramen and many more. In Penang, there are not many restaurant selling this ramen, at least I can't recall any restaurant that selling it. If you know, I will be happy if you willing to share with me. Xuan Feng restaurant was opened on last year end. I was so excited when my colleague informed me they serve tonkotsu ramen. I get to know this ramen during my stay in Japan, the soup was cooked with pork bone (of course with other ingredients too) for long hours, hence you will get a very thick and sweet soup base. On last year, colleagues celebrated my birthday at Xuan Feng. I was satisfied with their tonkotsu ramen.

 

Manneken Belgium Waffle | Japan

I love to eat waffle especially when the waffle just comes out hot from waffle maker and waffle with peanut butter is always my first choice. I have even tried to make my own waffle with my sister in law's waffle maker which bought from Cosway. My homemade waffle didn't turn out as good as those sell outside. To me, good waffle should be crunchy outside and soft inside. Of course the taste should be delicious too. Recently, I get to know about Belgium Waffle after my first try in Osaka Railway Station, Japan. The strong fragrance from the waffle store caught our attention. We bought a piece of plain waffle which costs 126 yen (about RM4.50). The Belgium waffle was very crunchy and tasted heavenly!  

 

Durian Butter Cake Recipe

I always wanted to bake something with durian since few years ago. Due to some reasons, I was not able to fulfill my dream. This year, I have try with durian butter cake.

PepperLunch_12It is now a Hanami season in Japan (during March and April) and for many Japanese, this is the best time of year. The cherry blossom (sakura) trees all over Japan come in to bloom for about seven to ten days. This is also a great time for people to hold outdoor parties to view the sakura. The name “Hanami” says it all, hana means “flower” and mi is “to look”.

I am lucky to stay in Japan during this season. Early morning on last weekend, I gathered all my things and get ready to picnic under the sakura trees with my colleagues. This was the first time I experienced picnic and hanami in Japan, it was wonderful and I was so excited!

Let me share some sakura photos which I took during my trip to Kitanomaru National Garden北の丸公園.

Well, back to the main topic, FOOD! After the hanami, we had our dinner at Pepper Lunch as we noticed that it is a special restaurant which we never go before. “It is a DIY affordable steak fast food which promises a dynamic and fresh culinary experience for everyone by presenting the novel concept of a sizzling steak. You can enjoy juicy steak brought with louder and longer sizzling sound at affordable prices.” This is quoted from Pepper Lunch website.

I ordered a set of garlic steak and it costs 880yen. The set comes with white rice as well. The steak was served in iron plate which is using a special electromagnetic cooker to cook. The iron plate will heat up to 260C in 70 seconds and remain hot for another 20 minutes.

This is a good experience I had but I was regretting to say that I overcooked the steak! It became hard and not juicy, also I forgot to cook the garlic as I was busy taking the photos causing the garlic not crunchy. Nothing much to complain, I can’t blame anyone as there is actually an instruction given to us on how to cook the steak. Too bad that I don’t understand Japanese, as a consequence, I overcooked my steak! Haha.
