What To Do With Leftover Nando's Chicken?

When I roasted half a chicken the other day, I ate the leg and  ended up with leftovers. Besides I also had leftover roasted vegetables.

This Chee Yok Fun Is Da Champ!

The last time I went up to A Foodie's Nest@The Starling, I tried Kom's By Kompassion which has since closed down. Business at this food court has picked up a bit since I last visited but I can't say that it is bustling.

Rakuzen....So Sian......

This was a Friday dinner at Rakuzen@The Starling. There was one occasion when we decided not to wait as the restaurant was full house.

Nando's Tastes Better At Home

After I bought a bottle of Nando's Peri-Peri Sauce and made my own Nando's chicken, I went on to buy another two bottles - the Lemon and Herb and Garlic

Moo..Moo.... Cow Brother@Damansara Uptown (CLOSED)

From Epicuro to Anneh and now, Cow Brother. I meant the shoplot. It used to house me and my brother's favorite Big Breakfast hangout until Epicuro decided to call it a day (a sad day for me). And then Anneh came along and didn't last 6 months.

Char Koay Teow King (Authentic Penang Char Koay Teow)@Damansara Uptown

This restaurant is somewhere opposite UOB Bank in Damansara Uptown. Previously, as in just a few months ago, this shoplot was occupied by a place selling noodles.

Lazy To Cook : Theori Food@Damansara Uptown (Closed)

After I discovered Theori Food@Damansara Uptown, I decided to take short a break from my DIY lunch prep. Let's face it, it's always great to have food cooked and packed for you. Who wants to slave in the kitchen at 5:00am? I have my lazy streak and besides I did get a little tired of my own cooking.

Mango and Cabbage Slaw

Do mango and cabbage go well together? In my personal opinion, no. How about mango, cabbage and lime juice? Again, no. So why the heck did I make this Mango and Cabbage Slaw?

Brownies Mak Oi!

The other day there was a minor power failure at the office. It affected not the whole office but only appliances that were plugged into certain power sources. Only my computer was affected while the air conditioner and lights worked fine.

Curiosity Kills The Cat : Beef Burger with Peanut Butter and Jelly

I'm a glutton for punishment aren't I? In spite of the insipid coffee and so so big breakfast, I came back for one more experience.

A Sad End to My Spidery Beauties

My purple Cleome finally bloomed some months ago, thanks to the generosity of Ms Nancy Chan who gifted me with another batch of seeds.

Nando's in My Kitchen

It has been a long, long, time since I ate at Nando's. Quite honestly, I did not find Nando's chicken all that special. The flavors did not make an impression on me and I never went back.

Friday Food

Yup, Friday is cheat day. Though it didn't go as planned, it was nevertheless a cheat day. A day when I can eat whatever I liked. I skipped dinner the night before because I ate too much on Thursday. I will get to Thursday in a bit.

Pork Vindaloo

I have been wanting to try cooking a vindaloo, be it chicken or pork but I never did because I was iffy about the vinegar. Vinegar in curry seems rather odd to me.

An Indulgent Salad : With Bacon & Fried Bread

Do you like bread? I love bread. I haven't had bread like for ages. I love crusty breads, sourdough, mixed nut loaves, whatever kind of breads and buns.

Theori Food@Damansara Uptown : My Healthy and Delicious Tapau Dream Come True (Closed)

On one of my walkabouts in Damansara Uptown (in an attempt to burn the waffles I ate) I chanced upon something interesting.

Got Fish & Chips Ah?

After my visit to The Good Batch, I wanted to return to try the dinner menu. So I suggested to my partner that we try something different for our Friday night dinner.

Golden Spicy Chicken

I have been quite successful in resisting the urge to buy cookbooks whenever I visit the bookshop. Every time I take a walk to Popular bookshop or BookXcess, I am inevitably drawn to the cookbook section. I'm a cookbook addict.

The Good Batch : Still Good?

Back in June, I mentioned that I walked all the way to The Good Batch hoping to catch their big breakfast only to find that they were closed for renovations. Well, they have finally reopened.

Mummy's Yellow Beef

This is one of my mum's signature dishes. Everyone in the family loves it. Her version is more generous with the onions and garlic and it looks like I underestimated my ingredients again.

I Don't Eat Like This Anymore

These solo lunches at Mr Tuk Tuk happened quite some time ago. I used to eat the set meals but I decided to try ordering individual dishes from the menu. Since I am alone, obviously I cannot order too much.
