A fantastic Chicken Burger at a pub on Bridge Rd who's name current eludes me.

24 Litres of Jelly!!!
Yes, once again it's a food challenge. Last time I was in Melbourne we had a Viennetta Challenge and this time it's Jelly.
The Challenge was to finish 4L of Jelly , which turned out to be much more difficult than expected. In fact, it took me 4 hours and 19 minutes with a long break in the middle to have dinner!

The all-vegetarian, semi-buffet style dining at Soul Mama in St Kilda is fantastic. This restaurant offers views of the setting sun over Port Phillip Bay (but it's probably best not to spend your entire meal looking into the sun)!
Sorry for the slight delay in the last few photos, I seem to be having some problems uploading photos to flickr on the dodgy Australian connection. But things seem to have slightly improved and I'll hopefully be able to get those last few photos up soon!
PS. Today (Monday 25th) is the 365th day!

Another photo of Green Curry in my rice bowl. This is because, despite how delicious it is and how much I love it, a large bowl of pale green liquid with some leaves floating in it isn't exactly photogenic!

Day 358 - Tomato Mince Beef with Rice and a Fried Egg, originally uploaded by JoeGray.
Lunch at my desk again! A Bolognese type sauce on white rice, with a small amount of Vegie and a Fried Egg on top!
A delicious and cheap lunch from the LG7 food court at work.

... with Mini Chicken and Bacon Cheddar Beef Mini Burgers in the background and a Carolina Chicken Salad way out back. A quite expensive lunch at Ruby Tuesday's in Shatin.

We had a fairly big group for Hot Pot last night. We decided to go for a half and half soup base, where one side was a mild soup and the other was a tongue numbing, eye watering, super hot, spicy concoction.

Last time I was at PizzaExpress I ordered a salad that arrived with these dough balls on the side. They were great. So great, in fact, that I thought: "maybe next time I can just order the Dough Balls?" and so I did. Unfortunately, I was slightly less impressed this time, I was expecting them to arrive hot and soft and pillow-y in the middle (like last time). It wasn't to be... Next time I think I'll just go back to a regular salad!
Day 351 - Satay Beef with Sweet Potato Noodles in Hot and Sour Soup, originally uploaded by JoeGray.
This is limited time dish served at the Cha Chaan Teng at HKUST and since I enjoyed it so much last time, I decided to try the Satay Beef version this time.

Since it's just 2 short weeks* till the end of the 365 Days of Food, we're having final polls. Two! The first being the Best Photo of the 365 Days of Food and the second being Worst Photo of the 365 Days of Food. The shortlist for each of the polls was compiled mostly by me, but with a little feedback. If there's an image you particularly like, that's not here, let me know and I'll try to sneak it in. As per usual, feel free to vote on as many items as you like. Voting will be open until the 25th of January, midnight, the final night* of the 365 Days of Food.
* On the topic of the "end" of the 365 Days of Food, it turns out that I made something of a mistake when starting on the first day of the Chinese New Year (January 26th, 2009). The next Chinese New Year Festival doesn't happen until the 14th of February, which makes for 385 days in this Chinese Calendar Year. As it turns out the Chinese Calendar normally has 353-355 days in a year except for a leap year... where they have a whole extra month! And this year is a leap year, thus the 385 in this Chinese Calendar Year.
So... should I persist until the end of the Chinese Year, making 385 days in my "365 Days of Food" or should I just stop on Australia Day (which I'll be celebrating in Australia). I haven't decided yet, but am open to suggestions!

As I've stated before, I rather like instant noodles. My favourites are the Indomie which is a "dry" spicy Indonesian noodle and the Nissin Tonkotsu which is a Japanese Pork Bone flavoured soup noodle.

Cook a 1/2 to 3/4 of a packet of pasta (I used a whole pack - probably too much spaghetti) until al dente,
Fry 1 finely chopped onion (red here, but brown is better), with ~6 rashes of bacon until crispy,
Well mix approximately 6 tablespoons of Parmesan, 2 eggs, ~1/2 cup of cream and white pepper to taste,
After the Bacon and Onion is cooked add the pasta to the pan and when everything is hot pour in the mixed sauce while furiously stirring.
Serve! Feeds ~4-6 depending on appetite.
I love a salad so included the only thing I could find rocket in, but was too lazy to include halved cherry tomatoes, carrot and cucumber (which would have gone well).

Finally, after often finding it sold-out after a spot of lunchtime climbing, I got to enjoy a Sandwich-in-a-Bowl. I really enjoy salads, and often here in Hong Kong, there's not enough variety.

Take-away dinner from a Thai Restaurant. The green curry is my favourite!
Day 339 - Pork with Sweet Potato Noodles in Hot and Sour Soup, originally uploaded by JoeGray.
Szechwan Style. Very hot, very sour, very good!
