    How difficult is it for you to source 'western' imports, food-wise? Are there certain things or regions that are easier to find foodstuffs from, or is it just hit and miss?

    The curry looks delicious! Curious what makes it bunny chow? Here in South Africa the term simply refers to curry that is served in a hollowed out loaf of bread. So you order a 1/4, 1/2 or full bunny, and that is the size of loaf that is hollowed out (with the removed bread included on the side or as a 'topper'). I'm curious if there are other versions of 'bunny' that don't include the bread.

    The really ironic thing was when we were in Oz a few weeks ago, and our hosts took us to an Outback for one lunch. I thought it was just one of those 'Merica things, apparently I was wrong.

    Douglas Adams dedicated a not-insignificant amount of space to the subject in the HGTTG. And of course, the sandwich shop in question was called the Psychedelicatessen...
  5. I know I'm only looking through a tiny lens on the internet, but by my book, you and Moe are truly living the dream. So many of us are stuck in these boxes of 'that's not breakfast food,' and thus we don't eat what we really want, and you two are eating what you want, when you want it. And to top it all off, everything you make looks absolutely fantastic. Yes, I'm a little bit jealous.

    Sounds (and looks) amazing. Do you happen to have a picture of a slice to see the inside?

    When we lived in India, the water in our area was quite bad. It wasn't even piped, but trucked through the city and pumped into plastic tanks on the roof of the building, that were never cleaned, etc etc.. Brown water was not uncommon. Getting ill from the water was also not uncommon for tourists. We had three small children with us, and as you do, you always remind them to wash their hands before they eat. I commented often that it's kind of ironic telling them that to be healthy, they need to wash their hands - with water that will make them sick. And this was enough years ago that hand sanitizer wasn't sitting on every table and in every purse. For us, we used a RO filtration system that filled a small tank, and would use that for all cooking needs. Veggies would get rinsed first in 'regular' water to get dirt and bugs off, then rinsed in RO water to get the regular water off...

    Didn't get a picture, but Mrs. M made us a lovely autumn meal (southern hemisphere): Perfect fluffy white rice, with the following toppings to add as you wished: -Sliced cucumbers, carrot matchsticks, soft boiled eggs, spring onions, mushrooms sautéed w/garlic and onion, and a chili-crisp-sesame-soy sauce to top It was wonderful!
  9. This looks ridiculously good, and Mrs. M and I decided it will be on the menu soon!
  10. We stopped at a nice little place called the Red Door Cafe for brunch while taking some friends to the airport, I ordered the 'Dippy Eggs': Soft eggs, with pieces of Mozzarella, a tangy tomato salsa, chives, bacon, and sourdough soldiers. It was very nice! Of course, presented in the little egg carton was a nice touch.

    During our years in Bangalore, we fell in love with momo's. So many options and variations. One restaurant served only momo, each flavor in a different shape, and a unique sauce.
  12. I am generally of the same opinion, however, I have discovered that in hot-pot, it is one of the finest ingredients. There is a Chinese hot-pot place that we go to regularly, and the Cauli is a must. It absorbs the flavors of the broth incredibly well, and is usually my favorite ingredient to drop in.
  13. My input can't help you, as I live in South Africa, but just talking about honey makes me happy. We can get some absolutely extraordinary honey's here. The two that have rocked my world the most are one from a local vendor that mixed honey from wild hives in the Highveld. Every time you tasted it you got a different flowery kind of flavor. And the other, my absolute favorite, was Blue Gum or Eucalyptus honey. They range from very mild to very potent, but they are all truly incredible. Honey so good you go looking for excuses to use it. And of course, being in South Africa, with the ever present Rooibos tea, honey is the perfect (and in my not so humble opinion, only acceptable) accompaniment. Honey really brings Rooibos to life.
