I love August. Everyday feels like a gift. it’s a month to reflect on myself and getting to know about myself better. So, today is about food. It’s hard to answer people when they ask, “What is your favourite food?”. I just eat. And be thankful for it. So I had a think about it before coming up with this list. It’s the type of meal that if say, we go out for fun and the waiter needs to get the order, a.s.a.p – it is safe to order for me these meals.
I actually loved the arabiatta I had at the cafeteria during my uni years in Manchester. It’s an unforgettable taste. Here, the arabiatta taste different. So, I am quite happy with a spaghetti bolognese or a non spicy aglio olio. Carbonara is not my go to meal but I’d still have it if someone ordered it for me. The best ones are prepared by my mother of course. The sauce is just wonderful. Tak jumpa kat mana2.
The best commercial tomyams I super love are the ones from Black Canyon and Johnny. The stalls ones are good too but sometimes it gets too spicy. Tomyam can come in red or clear broth. I have no particular preference.
In particular a Double Cheese Burger Meal (fries + sprite). I would occasionally get the chicken porridge meal too. I love the McCafe options too. A latte with the chocolate or red velvet cake!
4. Japaneses and Korean dish (not spicy ones)
There is this restaurant called Sukiya that serves japanese food. The gyudon bowl with 3 cheese is superb. Add on the karaage chicken or edamame is just ‘chef’s kiss’. A korean dish equivalent would be something called bulgogi. Love it because it is not spicy. I also love the Korean dish called Japchae. sebab tak pedas.
Laksa Johor. The best are the ones my friend make.
Laksa Sarawak. Either Madam Tang or MOM’s Laksa (the kedai one). I am beginning to like the one available in Melaka too. At that restaurant called Kolok vs Laksa. I wonder if it still exists.
Laksa Utara. This one is tough. The best ones are home made (by somebody else.. ha ha). I love the ones with very fishy broth but not spicy.
