I was tagged by Seay’s Kopitiam a while back and have been procrastinating. Listing my favourite food here in my current place of abode, Germany, isn’t an easy task as I’m not a big fan of sausages and potatoes! And I don’t think that Beer necessarily falls into the “food” category. So as I was struggling to come up with just 1 favourite dish, I decided to list a few of my favourite foods from some of the places that I’ve lived in.
Favourite food from Paris:
Tendon (top left)
My favourite food from here isn’t French but Japanese! I love the tendon (tempura topped rice dish) from Kunitoraya in the heart of Paris. This little Japanese eatery serves up simple but tasty rice and noodle dishes in the midst of a city filled with croissants and confit de canard. The tempura here is perfectly light and crispy without a hint of oiliness and the rice, perfectly steamed firm grains of rice. YUM!
Favourite food from Frankfurt:
Thai red curry (top right)
Just 2 minutes from home, we have a fantastic Thai takeaway that so far, has the spiciest Thai curries in our neighbourhood. For roughly 5 EUR a curry (super cheap by European standards), this vegetarian red curry has everything a red curry should have – chillies and coconut milk, served with perfectly steamed rice!
Favourite food from Home (Malaysian):
Home-cooked char kuay teow (bottom left)
Living a long long way from Malaysia, char kuay teow (fried flat rice noodles) is hard to find here. This has to be my all-time favourite food. Judging from the entries by other bloggers, I’m not the only one that likes char kuay teow! Only problem, when you’re far from Malaysia, the only way of having char kuay teow is to make it yourself! So, I’ve included a photo of my home-cooked char kuay teow, and the perfect accompaniment to the dish: freshly cut chillies!
I’m supposed to tag 5 people but I’ll only tag 4 (I’d love to tag all the blogs that I read though!)! So if you’re interested in doing this meme, please go ahead! Don’t forget to let me know so I can check out drool over your favs as well!
