Vietnam House Memories Treasure Chest

Vietnam House, Fortitude Valley


Vietnamese cuisine is one of my go-to food if we have the options of eating out. I could not remember why we chose Vietnam House that night but why not? We drove past this restaurant frequently and had never visited it. We did make a booking knowing that it is quite a busy place especially on a weekend. Parking as always can be a challenge in the Valley but we were lucky to find street parking if you are patient enough.

It was still winter then (yup, trying to finish my backlogs!) and I wanted pho. I remember myself of being of a vermicelli salad person but once in a while I crave for pho. But first up, we tried their Vietnamese spring rolls. They were crispy and delicious! It was so moreish!

Their pho comes in three different sizes - small, medium and large. I was not sure how big their 'large' size was until it came to our table. Holy moly it was big! It can certainly feed two people! Their pho was quite good, with thinly sliced rare beef. I just thought their soup base may be on the sweeter side.

Atelier Brasserie - Bowen Hills Espresso & Matcha


Date night and for once I let go of my usual domineering tendencies for one evening and let him decide on a place to take me out to dinner (along with the usual annotation that should he fail to impress, this will be annotated on his record permanently). He didn't skip one beat and said that he would take me to Atelier Brasserie, the new chic euro brasserie along King Street at Bowen Hills.


With some prior engagements in the afternoon, we enjoyed a relaxing early evening stroll before arriving at our 7pm reservation.


Seating was varied, with standard seats, high chairs and outdoors seating. Not wanting to sit outside, it still took me a little deliberation to decide that I preferred a lounge seat, although the high chairs did give a really good street view, which I will have to return to at a later point to experience it there.

Eating Out: Two Tables Cafe (Pizza for Dinner edition) Kittens Gone Lentil

I've posted before about my love of Two Tables Cafe. They recently changed their opening hours during the week from breakfast/lunch to dinner time. The highlight of their dinner menu is definitely the pizzas! There are three flavours, plus their garlic bread. The menu also has burgers, acai bowls, desserts, and there are normally a couple of pasta specials. But let's talk about pizza.

First up, their garlic bread. Which is basically a garlic pizza. This is lovely, salty, and garlicky. It is basically an entire pizza on it's own though, which can be challenging if you are one person eating this and another pizza, but I can report that leftovers are excellent. All pizzas from here pass the important leftover test (they are excellent cold the next day).

Garlic Bread at Two Tables Cafe


My favourite pizza of all is the Melanzane. This has BBQ sauce, eggplant, pumpkin, and onion on it and it is divine! One of the best pizzas I have ever had. This is the one I definitely recommend that everyone must eat.

Melanzane at Two Tables Cafe


The Pomodori is a classic combination of tomato, olives, and sesame cheese. It is savoury and salty, with the sesame cheese giving a lovely creamy contrast.

And finally, the Carciofi. I got this to take away when they had a two for one special on World Vegan Day, so I got a couple of pizzas to take home to my family. This one is artichokes and mushrooms with pinenuts and aioli, and is really great.

This is my favourite cafe. They know me by name, we have good chats, the atmosphere is lovely, the food is great! I'll have a lot more posts about their food in the future, because they is the place I go to the m...

Village BBQ - Sunnybank Hills Espresso & Matcha


With all the excitement lately, we wanted a quiet dinner at somewhere close. Was slightly surprised to hear Adam recommend Village BBQ, which despite its proximity to my house, is a place that I had yet to try. Apparently he is a regular there, so I had to try it out and see what all the fuss was.


Arriving at dinner time, the place was roughly half full. Menus were provided. They doubled up as a tick sheet with plastic over it so that we could order by marking down our selection. Options comprised of the expected bbq skewers, along with a selection of hot pot dishes.


Our food came fairly quickly after. We even got a side serve of crushed garlic on the side for good measure.

Lutece Bistro and Wine Bar Memories Treasure Chest

Lutece Bistro and Wine Bar, Paddington

Once in a blue moon, Mr and myself will go on a dinner date if Grace can be looked after by the in-law. I chanced upon a 50% discount on Dimmi for Lutece Bistro (well, many months ago now) and made the booking. Parking is available around the complex and it was easy to find. The view from inside the restaurant was certainly quite breathtaking if you are early enough (hint here- early dinner post kid). 

Untitled
We first started with baguette and their Lutece truffle butter. Nothing extra-ordinary but certainly good nevertheless.


Untitled
I could not remember exactly the entree dish but I think it was either the foie gras or rillettes. It was delicious and Mr could not stop raving about it. This is certainly his sort of dish.

Now for our mains, I have heard of their famous sand crab lasagne and had to try it. My my my... it was definitely delicious. Initially I was worried that the crab will be 'fishy' but honestly, it was fresh, and loving it with the creamy crustacean cream. I understand then why there was this pool of sauce, hehe.

As for the other main, we tried their half duck a l'orange and to be honest, that was my first time trying duck with orange. It was actua...

Little Singapore - Market Square, Sunnybank, Brisbane my name is Food.





'Char Kway Teow' of which we usually order the combination which has both meat and seafood. The portion was quite small compared to the other times we have dined here and ordered the same dish. Sometimes, it can be also saltier or not enough salt, so it can be quite inconsistent at times.

The amount of seafood as well as meat also differs and I think that might be due to the chef who is cooking at the time. Sometimes, you would get more fish cake than prawns or meat, or would get only one prawn and no squid or so on. However, overall, this time, the taste was okay but we have tasted better in the past.


'Nasi Lemak' consists of steamed rice or coconut rice in some restaurants served with beef rendang, chicken curry, pickles, deep fried boiled egg topped w samba...

Recipe Round-Up: The Garden of Vegan Kittens Gone Lentil

One of my earlier cookbooks, The Garden of Vegan by Tanya Barnard and Sarah Kramer. You can see what else I have blogged from this cookbook here.

Carrot Ginger Muffins: These muffins are reminiscent of carrot cake, though they are not that sweet. This makes them a good snack. The recipe says it made 6 muffins, but I got 10. I assume they must be using a giant muffin tin. These are also nice split and spread with a little butter when they are warm.
Rating: :)

Carrot Ginger Muffins


Apple Streusel Muffins: If you promise me streusel topping, I want streusel topping. So I scaled up the streusel ingredients from 2TBS sugar as a base to 3TBS. Sprinkle about 1/4 tsp on top of each muffin, and you have a nice, crunchy, sweet topping. Again, I assume they made theirs in a big muffin tin, as I got 12 muffins instead of 6.
Rating: :)

Apple Streusel Muffins


Nana Marg's Bran Muffin Mix in a Jar: This quick mix gives you enough for three batches of muffins, though a note it does need to be stored in the fridge. I scaled down for one batch of muffins. It is an equal mix of bran and flour, with cinnamon and other spices and raisins.
Rating: :)

Nana Marg's Bran Muffin Mix in a Jar


Nana Marg's Quick Mix Bran Muffins: Take the above mix, make into muffins. The recipe does involve a mashed banana, apple sauce, oil, and water to be added. I did make 6 muffins with this one, but it filled my regular muffin cups right to the very top and they ended up very big! They are also quite substantial. Now that I write this, maybe the others were made in normal sized muffin tins, they just make them so they overflow when baking for big muffin tops.

Lacto Fermenting Workshop "IndyWatch Feed Seq"


I ran a lacto-fermenting workshop at home today under the verandah outback. Went really well --  krauts, do chua and  pastes.
Full on from 10 am.-- a'chopping and a'bashing and salting.
Jars exited  loaded with comestibles ...and in days and weeks to come: bon appetit!
On Thursday last I was teaching almost 100 local primary school kids how to make a simple salad.And you know what ? They even ate it! 
We're planning more outdoor, garden based, preps like that.
I reckon the plastic bag, green salad spin is a show stopper.

School Garden Update "IndyWatch Feed Seq"

The Community School Garden at Beachmere State School was originally set up in partnership with Beachmere Area Network Group and 2016 is its second year of its operation as a shared project.

Over the past 18 months the program has  consolidated  as the garden has adopted an approach which is more engaging of the children's input.

Students not only tender the plants and water the garden, but we are developing more activities growing vegetables from seed. 


We  grow and harvest a variety of different produce -- depending on the season --from herbs like parsley, basil, mint and dill; to lettuces, zucchini, eggplant, tomatoes, cabbages, beans, carrots, spring onions, kale, peas, loofahs and sunflowers. We keep a lavender hedge, run a worm farm and share our activities with a hive of stingless native bees.

Harvested produce is currently taken by the children or supplied to the school tuckshop.

While a small group of students maintain the garden most school days, on Thursdays approximately 200 children, from all levels, attend the patch for garden based activities. 

It can be full on.

We are fort...
