Miscellaneous Eats #4

Did you survive the chilly winds of winter?

I hope you do!

Well, the spring is here, so the shivering can be over soon! However it's still quite chilly out there these days although the sky is clear and beautifully bright, so where are you spring?

Anyways here are some of the bits that I'd digested this month.

1. Peach froyo from Yogurberry

Beside Korean food, I have been developing an addiction of frozen yoghurt and the symptoms don't seem to be over anytime soon. Yes, it is chilly, but I just can't resist the freshness and the tang and the sweetness from this dessert!

Peach froyo from Yogurberry is more than decent although I may prefer Wow Cow or Moochi, but it's enough to depress the craving for some days.

2. Charcoal bread from Breadtop

I've seen this black, unappealing bread somewhere in the net, but it was the first time I laid my hand on it. As black as night, it does appear a bit scary when you look at it, but it's actually a pretty nice bread roll. I wonder how did they make the bread black, I'm suspecting the use to charcoal. It doesn't have any weird taste, though, just normal bread roll with delicious garlic butter throughout.

3. Durian crepe from Breadtop

Another interesting good from Breadtop, I mainly picked it because it's been sometime since I eat durian. It's still a bit icy, and the crepe is too thick to my liking, The durian filling is, with no doubt, real durian flesh which is really nice but I wish there's more of it.

And yes, that's the dog eye-ing my food like he always does.

4. Homemade kimbap

One major advantage of having multicultural friends is the food. Sometimes we just gather somewhere to have lunch break together, and then a small feast of world culinary begins. That time, a good Korean friend was kind enough to share her homemade kimbap, Korean-style sushi roll, if you may. It's simple, but flavorsome and filling.

5. El Jannah charcoal chicken

El Jannah charcoal grilled chicken is a kind of magical creature. As I've mentioned on my post before, I freaking love this. The smoky smell and flavour, the saltiness, create a great explosion of happiness whenever I touch and taste it. Perfectly paired with the intoxicating garlic sauce and fresh tabouli.

6. Drinks: watermelon & passionfruit juice and ice chocolate

This month I seem to never get enough of sweet drinks. It's a mortal enemy of a diet program, but I need to stay awake during 3-hours lecture. The watermelon and passionfruit juice is surprisingly really good, it's purchased in Cabramatta at a drinks shop whose name I forgot.

The ice chocolate I have mentioned here, and it's as awesome as always. Creamy, chocolatey, and comforting.

  1. Hi Irene,

    If you like durian pancake you might want to try the ones from Furama (nearby Cafe Joy) if you haven't already done so.

    I prefer the Furama's one as they use custard instead of cream! :)

    1. Hi there!
      I've tried Furama's mango pancake before and I love it. but I wasn't aware that they have durian one too! will try it soon, thanks much! :)

  2. Yes, i believe they come in 3 flavours: mango, banana and durian. I've tried all 3 of them and iI definitely think durian is the best one.

    PS: stumbled across your post abt brownies.. Might wanna give Dello Mano brownies a try! I am normally not a brownies person as they can get too sweet for my liking, but this I demolish at one go!

    The downside? They are based in Brisbane and so u hv to order online, plus as they use the best couverture choc n high quality ingredients they are tad pricier than your average brownies.

    1. Hi Vida!
      thanks for ur info!
      oh wow what a brownie that sounds! yum i'll go check the website if they have one, do they?

  3. Yes they do!

    Think they hAve a facebook page as well as i remember a colleague of min won free samples.

    Correction: it is pricey. You'll see what I mean when you check their website :)

    1. I have checked it and it IS pricey. i might just persuade someone ti get them for my Christmas present..hehe but they look fancy, and delicious :9

It's nice to have people around :)
