San Francisco Chinatown Lunch

After three days in San Francisco city, I think I have lost some weight! Two reasons... I walked a lot and ate much less than I normally did in Malaysia... LOL..

Everywhere I go, I walk...and walk..blocks after blocks, opening my mouth often to ask about the way... and the latest discovery is Grant Street where the San Francisco Chinatown is...the place where Jackie Chan made a movie here too!

From the hotel where I am staying to Chinatown, it took me around twenty minutes to reach.. a very nice walk in the cooling weather, I have no complaints...
My pictures are not that attractive, I need to say..
Something very different from what others did...
along the Chinatown...
we were actually looking for chinese restaurants..
heard that the Peking duck is famous there...
and we just went into the first restaurant we came upon...
It was quite full when we entered..
but by the time we left, it was almost empty 
except for a few tables not in this picture..
we ordered these.....
and half Peking Duck...
which came with just the crispy skin and small pieces of meat..
oh gosh! surely not enough to feed me?
we chose the pancake to be eaten with the Peking duck
 and these reminded me of capati in Malaysia!
feeling not enough, we ordered these prawn dim sum...
And for the two of us.. the bill came to an astonishing $59usd!
Wow..I was thinking..for this amount of money
I could have a nice feast for some 10 people or more!
LOL....

  8. Now you are eating Chinese food as we know it in America.
    Har gow or Xiā jiǎo (shrimp/prawn dumplings) are my favorite with chili sauce! Here in Honolulu we have many Chinese regional choices plus local Hawaiian-mix style. Hope someday you visit here. Sand Francisco is the best city!

  10. If in Australia, i think it will cost around $40 and the quantity of food will be much more than that. Anyway, like my mum always says, "not many times lah".

Our Orders From Afghanistan, Spanish And Australia

My Final post on the Food Festival in the Victoria Market on Wednesday night.... The atmosphere at the market was "enhanced" by the cheerful songs and music by a group band... It was indeed a merry evening filled with music-licous folk songs in the air... . Ok, how to find four seats in this crowd.... hmmmm....... Somehow we managed to... and these were what my boys brought back to our table.... Mexican rice with oysters... or is it Spanish rice?   Both are the same, I guess... LOL.... Afghanistan Food.... chunks of chicken meat with naan.... Brazilian food.... don't ask me what it is.... I just ate what was on the table....  But I am amazed by this giant burger....  ..... and what burger is this? They told me it is Crocodile Tail Burger! Meat from the crocodile tail?  Is it just a name or what... I really don't know... Took a few bites of it... and I am full!! Well, these were the food we

My Failed Project In Baking Mini Egg Cakes

FAILED THIS TIME..... I don't know why, I follow exactly the ingredients and the method written in her website but it was not successful.  Something went wrong somewhere but I don't think I want to try it again.  This recipe is called Mini Egg Cake which is supposed to be soft, airy, light sponge cake but the way I made them, they turned out hard and crusty cake.   If I try again one day, I will half the portion... cos I like to eat these traditional egg cakes.... The Ingredients...  No point putting the recipe here since I failed..  LOL...  The portions of this recipe....  It looked very promising when I put them into the oven.... Even when they were in the baking process... they look good, aren't they? LOL...  I was so happy just by looking at the mini egg cakes in the tray....  And after they were let out... my heart sank....  The minute I took them out from the tray, I knew... Hard at the top...  Tak Jadi = Failed.... Now come to t

Home Cooked Dishes

NOT MUCH HAPPENING... and lazy too.... My neighbour gave me half pumpkin and I have been keeping it for a couple of days before I finally decide what to do with it.  I cook it into small chunks and sauteed it with minced meat, okra and basil leaves.  Yes, it would be great to put in some small cilipadi but unfortunately, I did not find any in my fridge.  Steamed a bowl of rice and that was meal for dinner.... One dish meal....  Pumpkin reminds me of sweet potatoes...sweet after cooking... Another dinner meal consist of Sambal Fish, black pepper met and a hard boiled egg  I only boiled the egg, the other two dishes were "sponsored" by my neighbour... LOL...
