Pepper Lunch | Japan

It 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”.

 

Yakiniku Buffet けゐとく苑 | Japan

This is the second time I went for Yakiniku in this restaurant. I missed the opportunity to take the photos of the food at the first time. This time I must grab the good opportunity to take as many photos as I can to share with our blog’s reader as I believed it is a worth recommended yakiniku restaurant in Japan.

 

Pokka Aromax Coffee | Japan

Recently, there are new types of coffee from Pokka Company in Japan. It is an aromax series coffee, four types of new aromax coffee namely "Black", "Ice Latte", "Espresso" and "Premium Gold". I have tried all of them and collected the cans of these 4 types coffee.Drinking cute mini can coffee in Japan is enjoyable but this is the first time I collected the cans. The reason is they are special in the sense that this is the first time I saw mini can with cover. Hence I collected 4 of them and wanted to bring them back to Malaysia as one of my collection.I bought all of them from company's vending machine, 90 yen each (about RM3.20). Normal price from outside vending machine is 120 yen each (about RM4.20).

 

Happy Mooncake Festival from MnYfoodtalk

It has been a while since our last update in MnYfoodtalk, it is mainly due to our webpage was corrupted recently (thanks to the previous lousy web hosting company). All the posts were gone and we had to re-build and re-publish all the posts as we do not have a backup for our posts. During the downtime of our webpage, the poor service from the previous web hosting company was really dissapointed us and make us mad. Hence we had decided to change to new hosting company as they provide a better service to us. The two hosting companies did make a big different in providing services to their customers. For instance, the way they reply our requests did make a big different, you can't imagine how a service company can reply an email to their customers in a rude way and blame that the fault is from customers themselves. In fact we knew that was the improper server configuration that brought us all the nightmare and here we have no intention to blame any party, but the rude and irresponsible way of servicing customer from the previous hosting company had changed our mind in continuing to host under their company. So far, we are pretty happy with current web hosting company. One lesson learnt here, BACKUP YOUR BLOG OFTENLY!

DurianCrepe_8After durian butter cake, I have tried with another new type of cake, durian crepe cake. I ate my first mille crepe during my stay in Japan. From there, I get to know mille crepe, a very delicious and special cake. Last year, I ordered one peanut butter mille crepe for Camus on his birthday, and it tasted heavenly.

I wanted to make my own crepe too but due to time concern, I have no chance to make one. This time, since it is durian season, I make a durian crepe.

Besides frozen cheese cake, this is another type of cake where you can make it without oven. The way of making the crepe is the same as making pan cake. You just need to fried the crepe piece by piece, prepare the filling and stack the crepe together with the filling until you get a perfect cake.

So, let's go to the ingredients:

For crepe:
200g plain flour
3 eggs
3/4 tsp salt
3 tbsp sugar
400ml milk
3/4 tsp vanilla essence
70g melted butter

For filling
450g durian fresh
150ml whipping cream

For crepe:
1. Mix all ingredients for the crepe together until get a smooth runny batter. Strain and rest the batter for 1 hour.

2. Heat up a non-stick flat based pan on medium heat.
3. Grease it with some butter or oil.
4. Pour in a scoop of batter and cooked until the crepe is firm, flip to another side and cook for a while.

5. Repeat step 3-4 until finish all the batter.
6. Leave the crepe to cool down on plate.

For filling:
1. Remove seeds from durians.
2. Mash durian fresh with a fork till creamy.
3. Whip whipping cream till stiff. Add in the durian fresh and mix till well combined.

4. Put a piece of crepe on a cake board, add in the filling and flatten with a palette knife. Stack another piece of crepe on top of filling and continue with filling until all the crepes finish stacked. Chill the whole cake in the fridge.

5. Remove from the fridge and rest at room temperature for 15 minutes before serving.

The crepe I made is quite thick, the filling I used for each layer is too little. I personally think that it is better to make the filling the same thickness as the crepe, so you will have a nice and creamy crepe.

I wrap the remaining filling with remaining crepe to make durian kuih. They are very creamy and delicious too.
