S’Baggers – Food Sliding Down

That’s my naggerder Frankendöner Haweii mid Dibb/Escalope Hawai,  seared pork cutlet topped with ham and grilled pineapple. This is what I had during our last semi-rendezvous with the in-laws in Nürnberg, at S’Baggers to be exact. For the dish, I love that they used fresh pineapple which was thickly cut and I did mention I love this grilled fruit over at my other blog where I already featured the restaurant. Please click here for that related story and to see how they uniquely serve food.  ...

Rocky Road Ice Cream – Made at home…

Philippine ice cream flavors has finally landed in this city. Magnolia ice cream tubs are now available at some of Vienna’s Asian shops. I was accidentally at an Asian shop during the first few days of their arrival so I bought Ube Macapuno (purple yam and sweetened, shredded young coconut meat). My kids love ube so it was a total hit! There’s also plain ube and quezo (cheese)… I later on learned from a friend that at the Asian shop near them, Rocky Road is offered. I let out a loud outcry. 😀 I...

Ikura sushi

Ikura sushi

Salmon roe (ikura) for sushi is prepared by soaking them in soy sauce and Japanese rice wine (sake). The process helps in removing the strong fishy flavor and makes the texture of the roe smoother and lighter. Each individual roe remains swollen, lightens up in color, and the texture becomes more enjoyable to the palate. If you think that the taste of the roe is too overpowering, just add quail eggs and cucumber slices to neutralize the flavor. Since the salmon roe are immersed in soy sauce, one does not need to...

Fish Fillet Burger

(With sauce tartare, tomato and lettuce plus a fly away cheese I put upside down, lol.) There’s this Japanese cooking show that has inspired me to cook some dishes at home that can actually be bought from fast food joints. I was just too lazy to go out or just too in the mood that I made one immediately after watching from Dotchi Cooking show. This show is so interesting because the ingredients used come fresh from farms, from the sea and factories, especially for the show. Also, I get to see a lot of...

Orange Chicken

You’ve probably had this from Chowking. I had. I tried it because this is their newest dish back when we were home. I have always enjoyed orange chicken. I thought this might be good since I think all Chowking dishes are good. 😉  I was rather disappointed to see a very small portion served before me. It didn’t help that the chicken pieces were tough. I was used to having them crunchy outside but juicy inside. I can’t even recall how it tastes. So here’s an ambitious attempt to mimic the...

Unagi no Kabayaki

Two weeks ago I got lost in the city for 3 consecutive days…I don’t clearly recall where I was headed the first time lol…The 3rd time was when I was going to the University (19th district) and while inside the University to inquire about translation studies.  The second time was when I was looking for a certain Japanese foodshop (1st district) to buy sizzling plates. I have been in that shop only once, found it by accident then and I promised myself that I’d definitely be back…I did...
