Lunch at a Thai Restaurant in Hang Hau village today after hiking the High Junk Peak Country Trail. The food was okay, but not an absolute stand out.

I've been making my own pizza bases for many years now, but last night, they just didn't quite turn out right. A little too thin for my tastes. Pizza still tasted great though.

Another dinner for two tonight, we cooked Pappardelle Carbonara and Chicken Parmigiana. I was really happy with the way both dishes turned out and eating less than an hour after walking in the door is not too bad either!
Day 123 - Meat Pies, Hash Browns and a Green Salad, originally uploaded by JoeGray.
Not exactly a "balanced" meal, but the addition of dark ale sure makes it an *awesome* meal!

Today I wanted something that I knew was going to be good, so I opted for a variation on a theme. I had the Pork Chop with Curry Rice instead of my regular Chicken version. I think the chicken is better, but this was still great and definitely worth the change.
Dinner at a small Japanese Restaurant before heading to the Cinema to see Night at the Museum 2. As expected, it was standard Hollywood sequel type stuff (not a compliment!).
As an aside, this photo is shot at ISO1600 because I didn't notice till later that I (accidentally) changed the setting. Pretty good performance really, in lowish light conditions.

I decided to go for the half Chocolate, half Strawberry Double Layered Sundae, but in retrospect, having both layers as Strawberry probably would have been better. Regardless, it was still quite good.

Day 116 - Grilled Pastrami, Tomato and Cheese Panini, originally uploaded by JoeGray.
For lunch today I decided on something a little left-field. It's very rare here in Hong Kong for me to have a sandwich (grilled or fresh) so I decided to have one for lunch. I think, however, I could have made better filling choices... Perhaps Roast Chicken, Tomato, Cheese, Lettuce and Avocado?
Anybody have any killer suggestions?
Also Pictured: Fish & Chips bottom left and Cheese and Bacon Fries bottom right.
We went to Outback Steakhouse in Causeway Bay for dinner last night, which is normally a favourite of mine. It's a favourite, not because of the over-priced, not very Australian dishes (although they do have ridiculous "crocodile dundee" names), but because they normally have Cooper's Pale Ale... normally... but last night they were sold out of the Coopers, which sunk their rating.
plus the bartender made a terrible "lemon-lime-bitters" (note the quotation marks) that was essentially just sprite and bitters... doesn't sound like very much lemon or lime in there buddy!
All this aside, it's still nice to get out for dinner.
And the Caeser Salad was pretty good.

Also, the winner of the last poll was a 5-way-tie:
all with one vote each! I'm sure if 7 people vote, we'll get a 7-way-tie!
I will strive to upload a little faster and will also now be trying to work a little off-camera flash work into my photos. Stay tuned!
For lunch at work I decided to go for something different. It was a little plain and a bit oily but very filling. Probably not something I'll choose again.

After I didn't win a single bet at Happy Valley we headed out for a late dinner. So late, in fact, that it was after midnight, and thus became the photo for the next day! Not a bad meal except for being continually almost run over by buses!
I love Alfresco!

One of the additional benefits of doing this 365 Days of Food, is that it's forced me to try many different dishes to liven up the posts, instead of just defaulting to my regular favourites.
Lunch was Japanese Soy Sauce Rice with Sliced Beef. It was a little smaller than I was hoping for and not quite as good as my regulars, but overall, not bad at all.
Wow, a hundred days! And I didn't realise it till writing in the numbers for this post! I should have had something more special.
This is the third time that this chicken curry has made it into the "365 Days of Food", this time as a take-away at my desk after some lunchtime climbing.
The Mandarin Oriental in Central offers a "Chocolate Afternoon Tea" which is a full on buffet. I didn't have breakfast or lunch so I arrived with an appetite but after 2 plates of almost pure chocolate indulgence I was just about done, and only managed a few more things over the next hour. In the end I had sweetness overdose and was longing for something salty.
Extra Chocolate Buffet images as requested!

Lunch today was Eggplant and Potato Curry with Papadums. I suppose I should have been drinking Lassi with this meal, but instead I opted for my regular Dong Yuen Yeung. Perhaps choosing the wrong drink was the reason they were stingey with the syrup and milk!
