Freshness From The Sea

I have cravings of Japanese cuisine all the time. I love sashimi and even though sushi is simply rice, it has a special taste (’cause sushi vinegar is added) that makes me cannot stop eating.

So last Monday my friends & I went to this place Doraya. It’s located in a building with one restaurant on each floor. As those restaurants are all popurlar & with high ratings on a local website Openrice, there is a long queue even for the elevator that stretches along the street. We had an unpleasant experience with a waitress previously at a spanish restaurant located in the same building. We swear not to go back ever again although they serve nice food. And so we picked this place that has less recommendations & hoped we wouldn’t have to wait for too long.

To be honest I didn’t have much expectation but the quality of food was totally beyond expectation.

Self-select sashimi don (select at least 3 kinds of sashimi). With salmon, scallop & prawn tartar.

The set includes miso soup, Japanese steamed egg, marinated veggies & a small salad. These are not much of surprises but the quality was acceptable.

The sashimi don was just perfect. The salmon slices were almost an inch thick. Both salmon and prawn tartar are fresh & sweet to the bite. The scallops were SO huge. They were almost comparable to the best scallop sushi I ever had in my life at an izakaya (japanese sushi bar) in Ginza, Tokyo.
The sushi served at that bar was all freshly handmade by an old master. The rice was warm and the scallops was juicy. Together with a sweet soy sauce that was drizzled on the moment before the sushi was served it was all perfect. I have not been to that place for years. I guessed it has already been demolished 😥

This place is a real gem with affordable price. The set only costed $118hkd + 10% service charge. I only learned from the reviews after my visit that the place is famous for tuna sashimi. I think I’m gonna revisit and try their tuna & sea urchin 😜

物超所值的自選三色丼🍱 差不多二人份飯量, 清甜的甜蝦他他, 掌心闊度的帆立貝帶子, 食指厚度的三文魚. 還有茶碗蒸(內有香菇和蟹柳), 麵豉湯, 漬物, 粉絲沙拉 。

The Colours of Autumn

Autumn has always been my favourite season. Not only because I was born in autumn, but I also love the atmosphere and scenery during the season. The weather gets crisp and I love feeling the gentle breeze on the streets. Everything gets a bit more atmospheric in autumn with red, yellow and golden leaves. It’s also the best season for spices (my love for chai latte), warm cider and barbecues.

Today I share with you a heart-warming cuisine which I think is best served in autumn, the season of slow-cooked stews ♥(˘⌣˘  ). It is one of the French classics, Beef Burgundy (Bœuf Bourguignon in French). This tranditional dish is bursting with flavour. I love the mellow scent of red wine floating in the air around my house – the best way to celebrate the coming of Autumn!

Hasselback Potato & Bacon Asparagus Rolls

This Swedish cuisine originated from Hasselbacken, the Stockholm restaurant where it was first served in the 18th century. Traditionally, the potatoes are sliced almost right through and then roasted until golden. Due to the special way of cutting, the potatoes are easier to cook through and the seasonings all submerge through the cracks. After roasting, the potatoes fan out and they are crisp on the outside and tender on the inside.

名字來自于18世紀瑞典斯德哥爾摩的一家餐廳, 主廚在馬鈴薯上切出平衡線, 但又不把馬鈴薯整個切斷
煮的時候更容易熟透, 調味料也更深入這些刀痕
