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.

 

Yam Cake 芋头糕 (Or Kuih) Recipe

I 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.

Baked Mooncake Recipe 公仔饼/猪仔饼

My mother usually will buy home made mooncake (gong zai bing) from her friend every year. This year her friend does not make the mooncake to sell, so we make it ourself. It is not difficult to make this gong zai bing, we get ingredients and recipe from one of the ingredient shop in Penang. The sales person recommended us to use pure peanut oil as our cooking oil is not a pure peanut oil, they added a kind of essence to make cooking oil. I do not know how true it is, but from the price, they have so much difference in "real" peanut oil (RM11 for 500g) compare to our cooking oil. We also bought cake flour from her to make the mooncake but according to her, any medium protein flour will do. Recall back last year, I used low protein flour to make gong zai bing. Golden syrup is expensive too, RM11.50 for 1kg.  Ingredients:500ml golden syrup200ml peanut oil15ml lye water700g medium protein flour/cake flour Method:1. Mix golden syrup, peanut oil and lye water in big bowl until combine.2. Sift in flour and mix until combine. Do not overmix to prevent mixture become hard.3. Cover bowl and leave for 6 hours or overnight. (compare with my last year recipe, which need to leave for 2 hours only, the sales person said 6 hours will let the flour absorb oil/golden syrup fully and give the mooncake better taste)4. Preheat oven at 180C for half an hour.5. Divide dough to 40g each and roll it round, lightly press with palm to flatten it.6. Bake in oven (fan-forced) for 12 mins or until cooked. The gong zai bing smell and taste really good after baked. It is best to keep and consume after 3 days, as when the biscuit just out from oven, the texture is not soft yet. I will keep this recipe for future use. The same recipe can be used to make traditional mooncake (wrap with filling) too. To make piggy mooncake, follow here: Before I end this post, MnYfoodtalk would like to wish everyone a very Happy Mooncake Festival!

I would like to share a very simple dish that I cooked yesterday, homemade yakitori. Yakitori (焼き鳥) is a Japanese type of skewered chicken. It is made from few bite-sized chicken meats, skewered on a bamboo skewer over charcoal.

I do not bake for a period of time due to no oven with me in Japan. I mentioned that I miss my smart oven in Penang from the post of Peach Cheesecake. Well, after few months of stay in my apartment, I do not realize that actually I have an oven in my apartment. It is conventional oven where it can be used to toast, grill, bake and also act as microwave oven. A friend of mine discovered this and told me that I can bake, huuray! If not, I think I won't realize that I have an oven with me. Haha.. Tongue out

RainbowKiwi_2Talk about kiwi fruits, the country of origin is China and later on the seeds were brought into New Zealand. In New Zealand, the kiwi fruits were broadly planted and from there they are exported to other countries around the world. Hence New Zealand's kiwi fruits became popular. Recently, a new kind of kiwi fruit is found in Japan.

I saw a very cute mini red apple when I am shopping in OIOI shopping complex last weekend. I was looking for various kind of fruits at that time and unexpectedly I saw those mini apples. I was so excited and thinking to buy it but at the end I walked back with empty hands as we were too hungry and rushing for dinner.

I was regretted for not buying the mini apples and keep thinking on the cute apple for few days. Frown Yesterday after work, on the way back home, we stopped by a shop to buy fruit. Out of expectation, we saw the cute apple again. Without further consideration, we walked to the counter with a pack of mini apple. Yee hee.. A pack of 14 apples cost 298yen, which is about RM11.

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! Tongue out
