    Dinner 2020

    I cannot remember having seen the pasta cheese wheel as an item on any menu. I only saw the dish as part of either an open buffet or as part of an event reception. I stopped doing Buffets long time ago since the time when Lobsters were part of the open Buffet and we killed it. My experience is based on private events/cocktails receptions/dinners/invites.... The other item I dislike is the Italian Arancini. Why would you want to stuff cheese in a rice ball. I dislike the dish immensely as tasteless and a chore to eat as finger food. The other one I dislike is any finger food in a twisted spoon.....Why???? add to that Mini burgers and Tournedos!!!!!!

    They usually scrap the inner well and add it to the pasta, I guess a deeper scrap and rub with a damp cloth to be used next day. It still is unappetizing and unhealthy for me. Basically it is: Yuk

    When Golden Daughter went shopping........ and when Golden boy went shopping........ and yours truly last meal..... and I strongly dislike this new fad of cooking pasta in a Parmigiano-Reggiano wheel. Unappetizing - unhealthy and utterly disgusting.

    Dinner 2020

    Hello Indonesia We visited a hole in the wall Indonesian eatery and the short of it, it is a far cry from the Malaysian cuisine which remains my Asian favorite. Starters 1- Spring Rolls (non Indonesian) 2- Satay (non Indonesian) 3- Gado Gado 4- Murtabak Mains 6- Mee Goreng (non Indonesian) 7- Soto (something) Taste: 1/5 Presentation: 1/5 Service: 1/5 Cost: Cheapest ever As they were out of any dessert, we moved next door to the Italian hole in the wall for a Tiramisu which they did not have. However, we fell on a very nice surprise as they started to offer Fabbri Gelato !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Yumm. The Fabri Gelato is a soft Ice Cream which is churned on a set timer and is delectable. They had 4 flavours: Salted Caramel - Aqua Vera - Chocolate and Vanilla Of course I had to taste all the flavours and got the Vanilla one with the famous Amarena Fabbri syrup. (Sour Cherries). Score: 5/5 Note to self: I need to purchase this Ice Cream churning machine and run it in the bedroom...... I wonder if the wife will agree? She got me this last time: Poor poor Me!

    Yes it is. It is very tasty and as usual........ No meal is complete without a Dessert chaser. No beaching is complete without a Shisha and a Habanos chaser. No clubbing is complete without Champagne and Vodka chasers.

    Well, I am glad you like the old style rectangular original pizza as I think it is the best. The crust question is a difficult one as the sides are crisp but you do not always get a full side as it depends on the cut. The middle is usually baked to perfection as it will create a drama and a revolution for the Italian people having their pizza any other way. The small Pizza shops, and they only sell pizza and calzone, they also offer a Pizza Bianca which is simply the baked version with no cheese or sauce or toppings whatsoever. And here you can taste the real dough base and frankly, it is delectable. You should try it if the opportunity arise. Unfortunately, only in Italy and outside the main cities.

    Dinner with the Illuminati numero un pizzaiolo: Pier Daniele Seu When is a Pizza not a Pizza? When presented to you by the top voted numero uno Pizza maker: Pier Daniele Seu Did I like it?.......................... Well it's a Pizza but I still prefer the original Pizza sold only in Italy small Pizza shops baked in a rectangular tray cut with scissors and sold by the Etto.

    Yemenite Meat Soup

    Ohhhh. Your wife has great taste. But how did you come across this famous Yemeni dish? The name of the dish is Saltah Fahsa and is one of my favourite Yemeni dishes. It does come in different concoctions and the way to eat it is with Yemeni Malawah bread dunked in the soup with fishing the shredded meat. So spicy and comforting. I have posted pictures sometime ago and here are some from the web: - Malawah Yemeni bread - Saltah Fahsa
