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.

DurianCrepe_8After durian butter cake, I have tried with another new type of cake, durian crepe cake. I ate my first mille crepe during my stay in Japan. From there, I get to know mille crepe, a very delicious and special cake. Last year, I ordered one peanut butter mille crepe for Camus on his birthday, and it tasted heavenly.

I wanted to make my own crepe too but due to time concern, I have no chance to make one. This time, since it is durian season, I make a durian crepe.

Besides frozen cheese cake, this is another type of cake where you can make it without oven. The way of making the crepe is the same as making pan cake. You just need to fried the crepe piece by piece, prepare the filling and stack the crepe together with the filling until you get a perfect cake.

So, let's go to the ingredients:

For crepe:
200g plain flour
3 eggs
3/4 tsp salt
3 tbsp sugar
400ml milk
3/4 tsp vanilla essence
70g melted butter

For filling
450g durian fresh
150ml whipping cream

For crepe:
1. Mix all ingredients for the crepe together until get a smooth runny batter. Strain and rest the batter for 1 hour.

2. Heat up a non-stick flat based pan on medium heat.
3. Grease it with some butter or oil.
4. Pour in a scoop of batter and cooked until the crepe is firm, flip to another side and cook for a while.

5. Repeat step 3-4 until finish all the batter.
6. Leave the crepe to cool down on plate.

For filling:
1. Remove seeds from durians.
2. Mash durian fresh with a fork till creamy.
3. Whip whipping cream till stiff. Add in the durian fresh and mix till well combined.

4. Put a piece of crepe on a cake board, add in the filling and flatten with a palette knife. Stack another piece of crepe on top of filling and continue with filling until all the crepes finish stacked. Chill the whole cake in the fridge.

5. Remove from the fridge and rest at room temperature for 15 minutes before serving.

The crepe I made is quite thick, the filling I used for each layer is too little. I personally think that it is better to make the filling the same thickness as the crepe, so you will have a nice and creamy crepe.

I wrap the remaining filling with remaining crepe to make durian kuih. They are very creamy and delicious too.
