Graaaagh. I’ve been a bit busy lately because I’m on the wonderful 6:00am split shift, where I have to wake up at 4:30am to ensure I get to work on time. Then I pretty much am working and breaking in between until 5:15pm, so needless to say, I am bloody knackered when I get home. I was so tired and busy that I couldn’t even really do much for Memorial Day weekend, but I did make it down to Cheongju to visit Chibi Toaster. Except I had no idea it was Buddha’s Birthday on Memorial Day, so the Koreans were also on holiday . . .
Anyway, here is a quick photo dump post to share some nommy things I’ve eaten :D Enjoy!
Chibi Toaster and I had some errands to run in Dongdaemun a few weeks ago, and we decided to get some Indian food at Namaste. I got the butter chicken with naan, and it was yummy! This was my second visit to them, and I liked this visit better than the first one!
The visit to Namaste encouraged me to try making some butter chicken in a slow cooker, and I merged these two recipes. It turned out okay only because the seasoning was much too bland. So I doubled the seasoning when I re-heated the dish on the stove, and that proved to be much better. At least the chicken turned out to be juicy and tender! Oh, and that bread is not naan; it’s pita bread from the Bakers Table XD;
My auntie’s lunar birthday was a couple of weeks ago, so she brought home some green tea cake from Tous les Jours . . . and this was the cake. It was pretty good :D
Naengmyeon has become one of my favourite Korean dishes. I love these chewy noodles in the sweet, tangy, and cold broth with some gochujang (red pepper paste) to spice things up! This place is the new 24-hour soondaegook place called Halmae Soondaegook. This naengmyeon came with soondae, which is Korean blood pudding. This has become my new go-to naengmyeon place!
I saw on Facebook that the De Espresso Room was now serving new sandwiches and avocado smoothies, so I moseyed on over there to try out the chicken pesto sandwich and chocolate avocado smoothie. YUM. I think I’ve found my new favourite place to get a light lunch!
Last, but not least, my co-worker and I went to Greenstreet in Dragon Hill Lodge to have some brunch, and I got the croissant French toast with some bacon. This was the first time I’d tried croissant French toast, and it was amazing. I don’t think I want regular French toast anymore . . .
