Some of my favourite things to eat

This week is kind of a busy week for me, so I’ll post about what I’ve been eating instead of what I’ve been making for today. (I’m so happy that the iPhone takes lovely impromptu restaurant food pictures.) Hopefully I’ll get something yummy up before the end of the week.

Well, I don’t know if I’ve mentioned this before but some of my favourite things to eat are (1) Japanese rolls/sushi, and (2) dimsum and dumplings. Every time I have them, I get this feeling of major satisfaction that stems from deep within. I guess that means these are my happy food, or my “soul food”. If that’s the case, I would gladly devour these things every day!

One of my favourite restaurants is without a doubt Omakase Restaurant. It’s a nice Japanese restaurant that’s verging on the cosmopolitan spectrum. It has a fantastic selection of Japanese rolls with really interesting and yummy names like Dynamite Rolls, Dragon Rolls, and Spider Maki; as well as rolls filled and topped with avocado or cream cheese, to name a couple. Their soft-shell crabs are also worth a mention. My brothers love them so much we always make double orders.

One the other hand, Lugang Cafe is responsible for my constant dimsum cravings because of its Xiao Long Bao, or pork dumplings filled with soup and which pop in your mouth. It’s one of the things I scour the streets of Shanghai for because eating these little critters are such a pleasant experience. I don’t know how to make Xiao Long Bao on my own yet, but it’s comforting to know that at least I don’t have to go all the way to Shanghai for an authentic-tasting fix now. Also, I love the decor in this joint.
