Dinner at いろはかるた Izakaya 居酒屋| Kyoto Japan

Izakaya居酒屋is a place where Japanese gather together for eating, drinking, smoking and talking. To be more precise, it is a place for them to drink, drink, drink and drink non-stop. Since it is a place for drinking, many Izakaya provide drinking buffer (飲み放題 "nomihoudai") package. If you are to order a set package, many of them come with appetizer, main dishes, salad, dessert and some side dishes. The drinks are buffet type and you can choose from soft drink, wine, cocktail, sake and others. Most of them are alcohol. I have visited to many of the Izakaya during the stay in Japan. Most of the times were attended farewell or welcoming party with Japanese colleague. I have no chance to take good photo during dining with them.

 

Matcha (Green Tea) Chiffon Cake Recipe

If you have read our post on "How Chiffon Cake Works? The More You Want to Know About Chiffon Cake", I am sure you have very clear idea on this cake. How it works, what causing the cake rise, to what extend should your egg whites form, how to prepare the pan, oven setting so more. Among all my chiffon cakes (exclude those failed one), I would like to share on Matcha (green tea) chiffon cake recipe first. It was my first (so-called) successful chiffon cake after my hard pray to God. It was my big motivation after failure that caused big dissapoinment on last black sesame chiffon cake. It gave me courage to bake more chiffon cakes after "pass this difficult test".

 

Gathers Cafe | Raja Uda, Butterworth, Penang

Coffee, has taken away my heart. Sometime it make me happy, sometime it make me high, but sometime it make my heart pumping at wrong frequency. I wish I can drink it everyday, with a set of toast spread with kaya, together with 2 half boil eggs without pepper and soy sauce, so I can have the pure egg taste, to welcome my day!

 

Kobe Beef and Kobe One Day Trip

After Kobe trip with wonderful kobe beef dinner on 3 years back, I have another chance to visit Kobe again to enjoy world's famous beef steak. From forum and internet, travellers' feedback on kobe beef lunch cannot beat dinner set. With previous experience which Camus and myself will never forget in our life, I decided to give lunch a try and then make a comparison between set lunch and set dinner. I did some survey before go for kobe beef lunch, Wakkoqu restaurant has many good review. So my plan is to visit this restaurant. We arrived at Sannomiya station on that day before 12pm and would like to have short walk around that area before go for lunch. When we just arrived at Sannomiya Hankyu Station, we saw a long queue outside another kobe beef restaurant. We walked closer to look at the menu, the price is more cheaper compare with Wakkoqu. I believed it has some good reasons why people queue for the meal. We followed the queue and had our kobe beef steak lunch. The restaurant I mentioned here is Steak Land. We were arranged to dine at second floor, they served in tepanyaki style and guests were sitted around the table while the chef will cook and serve at center area. After put order, they served us salad, miso soup, steak sauce and plain water. When they brought two big pieces of beef (for 4 serving) to the table, I was regretted with my decision made. By looking at the kobe beef, it looks not fresh with brown in colour. Oh no, my main target for this trip gone. I had to stop blaming myself at that moment and pray hard that the beef will turn out good in taste. Compare with previous kobe beef dinner, I had to agreed that lunch is really not as good as dinner. After looking at how the chef cook the steak (obviously not as "proffesional" as our kobe beef dinner's chef), I started to enjoy my meal. I changed my mind after my first bite on the medium cook kobe beef, it was still soooooo soft and melt in mouth. With 2980yen for this set lunch, I can say I was satisfied with it at this price. Of course, if you aim for better quality and environment, I would recommend Mouriya Restaurant which we went for dinner. After the lunch, we proceeded with our trip at Kobe area. We walked from Sannomiya to China Town, then to Harbourland. Then end our one day trip at Kobe. I wish to return again for next Kobe beef romantic dinner with my dear Camus.

USSR_11We just had a short trip to Langkawi recently. It is an unforgetable trip with some good and bad experience. Thank God that it was a raining day on the first day when we just arrived. The weather was great and cooling, we really enjoyed it. We stay at Berjaya hotel, it is a very relaxing resort that can temperary keep us away from our busy life in town. On the first night, with "suggestion" from "GPS", we got to know this Russian restaurant at Harbour Park nearby our hotel, it is USSR restaurant.

After look through the menu, we decided to have our dinner here. We ordered 3 different sets of meal.

USSR_6

Menu

I was expected to see a steak when I order Beef Strogana (RM29), but when the food was served, opppsss, my "steak" was cut into so many pieces. From there I knew, that was "Russian food". The beef was a bit hard for me, but the taste was delicious and creamy. The waitress recommend for an extra bowl of rice to eat with this, but I choose not to have it.

Beef Strogana

If you don't like creamy, you may choose Delssian Village (RM30), the beef was cut into small pieces also and top with cheese, and it was baked. I personally prefer this.

Camus ordered Fish in Mon-ry (RM28), the fish is fried and served with slice tomato and top with cheese as well. It was very delicious too although tasted a bit salty.

For drink, Camus ordered plain homemade yogurt drink (RM8), it was very thick and pure milk taste. I personally don't like it as I do not like milk. I prefer coconut (RM6).

We were satisfied with the food and enviroument there, but the food is quite expensive, total of RM120 for 3 persons.
