Back at the family's favourite Shanghaiese Restaurant yesterday for dinner. I had the Dam Dam Noodles again so this time I got a shot of the Deep Fried Dumplings (Zin Kau). I also tried the whole Garlic Cloves pickled in Laba Vinegar, which were okay, but certainly not something to eat before a social event!

Dinner was take away Soup Noodles and Dumplings on Thursday night. Not too bad but neither compared favourably to the tiny Shanghaiese place we frequent.

Last night I went to Frites: Belgium on Tap in Central for dinner and drinks. I ordered the 'Good Wife Sausage' which was a half-mitre sausage wrapped around delicious, lumpy mash.
Normally I'm a fan of smooth and creamy mash, but in this case (perhaps it was the flavour of the potatoes), this lumpy mash worked *really* well.
Day 86 - Smoked Duck Breast with Fried Rice Noodles, originally uploaded by JoeGray.
After my slightly disappointing lunch last Friday, I decided to go with something that I knew. I couldn't remember if this one had been in the 365 Days of Food before (yes, it has), but it was delicious all the same.

Pictured is Pan Fried Rice with soy, Ham, Choi, Chicken with Sesame and my favourite: Fried Eggs also cooked with a little soy.
I fully recommend: next time you have Fried Eggs add a little soy, it gives the eggs a touch of saltiness and makes them extra delicious.
These eggs were supposedly extra special Japanese Eggs, but they tasted just the same (great!) to me.

Day 83 - Mat Yue Yeun and Taiwanese Style Sausages, originally uploaded by JoeGray.
Lunch today was rather an assortment of things including Mat Yue Yeun (Octopus Balls) and Taiwanese Style Sausages. Not too bad, but I preferred the Octopus Balls.

Lunch today at work I decided to try something aside from my normal Japanese Chicken Curry Rice or Char Siu Fan and went with the Char Siu Fried Udon. It was okay, but I think my regular choices are better!
A traditional late night snack in Hong Kong (I'll try to get a better photo again some time). I expected the Shao Mai from Mong Kok to be among the best as it's a bit of a centre for street food, but these ones bought from the store at the South end of Sai Yeung Choi S St were terrible!

This could possibly have overtaken Chicken's Feet (which I've come to quite like) as the strangest thing I've eaten so far in Hong Kong. Although the flavour wasn't bad, the sheer difficulty in eating this dish means, that I'm unlikely to try it again.
Day 76 - Steamed Scallops with Garlic and Rice Noodles, originally uploaded by JoeGray.
Fantastic flavours in this dish served at Maxim's, Po Lam.

As expected the wait out the front of Mochi Cafe in TST was horrendous on the first night of the Easter Holidays, but once inside, the food was fantastic, with this salad and the Udon being stand-outs. Actually worth the (very) long wait!

This old, beat up, coffee maker was handed down to me by my father and still brews amazing and strong coffee everytime. It's apparently an Italian design and I've never seen another coffee maker like it.
The Bimbo Deluxe Caeser Pizza won in a landslide 4 votes to 1.
Fish and Chips:
Fish and Chips was a tie, 2 votes each. But I can tell you that the Ballarat Fish and Chips were far tastier!
Another tie in the Hamburger poll, 2 votes each for the Ararat homeward bound Burger (with the "Lot") and for the MacDonald's Nightmare Machine: The Pounder

Dinner tonight was a very basic affair, with a couple of meat pies, potato gems and a leafy green salad.
My favourite way to eat pies is normally to cut open the lid and mix a little tomato sauce in with the meat. Tonight, I added a little American Mustard in with the sauce and meat, which turned out to be a great idea. Well recommended!

It's no surprise that we call this common dessert house chain "the mango mango mango place".
