Home Dine Out Japan Coco’s (ココス)| Japan

 

Onigiri Station | Suntech Bayan Baru, Penang

There is a new Japanese food restaurant open at Suntech Bayan Baru, Onigiri Station. Actually it is not newly open but yesterday was our first try there. We park our car at Sunshine Market and walk to the restaurant. Before we arrived at Onigiri Station, my brain already trigger me back to Japan. The fragrance from the restaurant was very similar to restaurants in Japan. This restaurant is quite small and everything is self service. I ordered a set of salmon don, which came with miso soup and green tea ice cream. Free flow of barley tea and RO water are available too.

 

Spaghetti with Mushroom Sauce Recipe

Years! It has been years I never touch on spaghetti, never walk into Italian restaurant (except for pizza). I am phobia to spaghetti after went for Italian buffet in Japan in year 2009, the Italian buffet came with free flow of pizza and spaghetti, somehow I guess I ate too much of spaghetti, and that caused me stop spaghetti for 5 years! Last week, sitting in office, I suddenly smeeeell spaghetti (my brain pop out spaghetti)...then feel like eating the spaghetti that Camus cooked for me about 7 or 8 years ago. Last weekend, he cooked for me again using the same recipe. See below for the ingredients and recipe, simple yet delicious! To cook the sauce, fried garlic and onion in pan, when both ingredients almost golden brown, pour in a can of Campbell mushroom soup, add half can of water and stir well. Add in dried mushroom which has been cut into slices after soak in water until soft. Boil everything and add in a slice of cheedar cheese. Stir evenly. In separate pan, cook corn, crab stick and beef breakfast lean. Very delicious beef breakfast lean bought in Jusco Cook spaghetti in boiling water until it is soft. When everything is done, serve spaghetti with mushroom sauce on plate, add corn, crab stick and beef breakfast lean. Serve hot! Now while I am writing the post, I wish to eat another plate of spaghetti again. Next time, maybe I want to have a plate of carbonara spaghetti. Last but not least, thanks my dear for this very delicious spaghetti!

Mini Pandan Bun Recipe

All the while, I enjoy blog walking at baking blogs. Recently, I gathered many recipes from baking bloggers, some are breads, some are cakes. I found a special recipes at many baking bloggers' blog, it is call "微波面包", if you translate directly, it means "microwave bun". I believed the name had successfully misleading many people and give impression that it is bake with microwave, but in fact, it is not. It uses conventional method which you need to bake in oven. The speciality of this recipe is that it gives a very soft texture to the bun. I first try with pandan bun recipe, it looks simple but in fact quite time consuming. Rolling each mini bun to swiss roll pattern spent quite long time. Although it is time consuming, but I really enjoy the making process.

Today after work, I went to take dinner with my colleagues. We went to a restaurant nearby company to have the dinner, it is called Coco’s (ココス). After about 20 minutes walk from company, we reached the restaurant and start our dinner.

 

 

I ordered a set of Chicken Steak with Cheese and Tomato Sauce. It is like Chicken Coated Cheese served in Malaysia. The chicken is soft and tasty but I can’t really taste the cheese. Maybe I am a cheese lover and the cheese taste is not strong enough for me? Well, don’t care, as long as the overall was not bad. Generally, I am quite satisfied with the food.

My colleagues ordered Beef Hamburger Steak. The beef was about 50% cook and you can continue to cook it yourself on top of the “mini hot plate”. The way they served the steak was special and that the reason they ordered this set.

I ordered the set which come with bread and free flow of drink. At first I thought it is garlic bread, but it wasn’t. It was a white bread which was toasted before served. It was a bit crunchy and taste not bad after spread with butter.

How about the free flow drink? There are plenty of choices to choose. First, I make a cup of hot cocoa drink. I always look for hot cocoa drink when I am in Japan. Japanese like alcohol so much but I don’t really prefer alcohol, hence hot cocoa is one of the drinks that I can drink. The hot cocoa in ココスis thick and suits my taste, you can feel the smoothness of cocoa drink when you drink it. I just love it!

Calpis

It is now cherry blossoms season in Japan, hence Cherry Blossoms (Sakura) Tea was a “must try” drink when you are in Japan. I personally feel that the taste is light and not much different if compare to normal “flower tea”. Anyhow, one of my colleagues ran to toilet after she drinks that tea. She was complaining stomachache and blames the tea. Haha, that was funny!

My colleague saw some other special tea, so we make another two, Baked Apple Tea and Tropical Mango Tea. Both are not bad. To me, they also taste almost the same as normal flower tea.
