Cold Egg Soba 冷たい卵そば | Japan

Soba is a kind of brown noodles made from buckwheat flour. Cold egg soba is noodles in cold sauce with wasabi, scallions and raw egg. I have never wanted to try the cold soba here as the egg serves in the cold soba is totally raw. I am afraid of the egg smell if it is eaten raw and dare not challenge myself to eat raw egg except if the raw egg is use to make tiramisu. Somehow, on past few weeks, we stepped into an old soba and udon shop. Since Camus wanted to try something special in Japan, Japan local food, hence we ordered cold egg soba. Unsure about how to order cold egg soba in Japanese, after talking and describing what we wanted to the Taukeh Soh, finally we got what we want.  

 

Cosway Bread Maker Machine

This is a new bread maker that I bought some times ago. After the first unit of bread maker that I bought from Cosway, this is the 2nd unit that I bought from there. It is mom's birthday present. The new bread maker comes with more functions compare to the first one, and it can make bigger loaf. The additional functions that attract me are "bake cake", "make jam", "bake only". I am not sure how delicious the cake is if you bake with bread maker. Well, I will try it! The "bake only" function is good where you can let the machine prepare the dough at first, and then remove the dough from machine and roll it to small ball (add some filling too), then put back to the machine for "bake only", so you do not need to always make a "Gardenia" or "High 5" bread, and it does not required oven.

Prepare ingredients by cutting them to small pieces.

 

Nakau なか卯 | Japanese Style Fast Food | Japan

Are you looking for something cheap in Japan? Of course, the “something” here means FOOD. Well, I think most of the people know that dining in Japan is not cheap, but if you are good in dig hole (korek lubang), you can actually get a cheap meal too. One of the “hole” I found is to walk around “super market” (I used to call those convenient market/mini market/super market hampalang (all) as super market), most of the “super market” selling bento 弁当 (lunch box). When come to certain time, few hours before the food is expired, they will have discount on the bento. Grab one!

ChocBananaI am back again to bake a birthday cake, a fresh cream birthday cake. This time I make chocolate banana cake for Camus's birthday. To me, I am lazy to make this type of cake as I will need to spend 3 hours and above (can up to 5~6 hours) to make a whole cake, from weighting ingredients to decorate the cake. Also, I will accumulate the left over ingredients like fresh cream, sponge cake mix and some others for months, or years...until they are expired...then throw them away. I really feel wasted to throw away those ingredients, and many times I also very lazy to make a move to stand in kitchen for whole afternoon on my weekend to make this type of cake. Of course, some time I "got form got ohm", I will do it happily just like this time, another chocolate banana cake was born in my kitchen, for an OLD baby that was born on 34 years ago.
