Kobe Beef and Kobe One Day Trip

After Kobe trip with wonderful kobe beef dinner on 3 years back, I have another chance to visit Kobe again to enjoy world's famous beef steak. From forum and internet, travellers' feedback on kobe beef lunch cannot beat dinner set. With previous experience which Camus and myself will never forget in our life, I decided to give lunch a try and then make a comparison between set lunch and set dinner. I did some survey before go for kobe beef lunch, Wakkoqu restaurant has many good review. So my plan is to visit this restaurant. We arrived at Sannomiya station on that day before 12pm and would like to have short walk around that area before go for lunch. When we just arrived at Sannomiya Hankyu Station, we saw a long queue outside another kobe beef restaurant. We walked closer to look at the menu, the price is more cheaper compare with Wakkoqu. I believed it has some good reasons why people queue for the meal. We followed the queue and had our kobe beef steak lunch. The restaurant I mentioned here is Steak Land. We were arranged to dine at second floor, they served in tepanyaki style and guests were sitted around the table while the chef will cook and serve at center area. After put order, they served us salad, miso soup, steak sauce and plain water. When they brought two big pieces of beef (for 4 serving) to the table, I was regretted with my decision made. By looking at the kobe beef, it looks not fresh with brown in colour. Oh no, my main target for this trip gone. I had to stop blaming myself at that moment and pray hard that the beef will turn out good in taste. Compare with previous kobe beef dinner, I had to agreed that lunch is really not as good as dinner. After looking at how the chef cook the steak (obviously not as "proffesional" as our kobe beef dinner's chef), I started to enjoy my meal. I changed my mind after my first bite on the medium cook kobe beef, it was still soooooo soft and melt in mouth. With 2980yen for this set lunch, I can say I was satisfied with it at this price. Of course, if you aim for better quality and environment, I would recommend Mouriya Restaurant which we went for dinner. After the lunch, we proceeded with our trip at Kobe area. We walked from Sannomiya to China Town, then to Harbourland. Then end our one day trip at Kobe. I wish to return again for next Kobe beef romantic dinner with my dear Camus.

Half Day Trip to Penang Hill (Bukit Bendera), Penang

This is the first time we went to Penang Hill after visited there since years ago. In my mind, Bukit Bendera is a cool place, where you can go away from super hot Penang island. Also, being prepared that there is "nothing" at the top hill. With this mindset, I prepared a jacket, pizza and some light foods for the trip. We went in early morning on last Sunday morning, arrived there at about 8.15am. After park our car at their carpark (RM3 per entry), we went to buy ticket. Ticket charge for adult is RM8 per person, if you show your Malaysia identity card to them (child is RM4). By the time we buy the ticket, there is no body in the queue, so we thought the visitor must be very few.

YamKuih_3I miss my kitchen, I miss my oven, I miss my flour, miss my butter, my mixing bowl, and...and...and... every single little thing in my little kicthen......

I have no time to bake, no time to cook, no time for food hunting for the past few months. The only thing I can do is to surf and read on people's blog. Sometimes, blogging life is quite lonely if you are walking alone. Interaction with readers or other bloggers are the best way to keep us motivated.

Recently, while surfing for recipe from internet, I found a group of "bakers" where they bake and share together. I wanted to join since when I found it, but again, due to no time to bake, I have no post to share.

For the month of October, they are sharing recipe of "Traditional Kuih", I will join them in October with my Yam Cake (Or Kuih).

This recipe is taken from my mom.

Ingredients:
For the kuih:
½ bowl dried shrimps (lightly chopped)
5 shallots (finely chopped)
1½ bowls yam, diced into 1cm cubes

1 bowl rice flour
2 tablespoons wheat starch (or corn starch)
2 bowls water

½ teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon five spice powder
½ teaspoon white pepper

For the decoration:
deep fried shallots
spring onions
red chillies
dried shrimps (chopped finely and fried) - optional

Method:
1. Heat pan over medium heat, fry shallots and dried shrimps until they become aromatic.
2. Add cubed yam to the pan, fry until it becomes brown in colour.
3. Mix the rice flour, wheat starch and water in a clean bown and stir until it forms a smooth mixture. Ensure there are no lumps in the mixture.
4. Add the flour mixture into the pan slowly, stir until everything forms a thick paste.
5. Add salt, five spice powder and pepper, mix well.
6. Pour the mixture into a heatproof plate and steam over high heat for 45 minutes, or until cooked.

Hi Joanne Teh, you ask a good question. When I do this I use the "proportion" method, which is "1 rice flour : 2 water".
