After failing to convince myself not to get take-out, I had Chinese food as my final dinner in Glasgow in 2014. Three Chinese restaurants within a one-minute walk from my flat…how could I resist! Yes, the sauce was too watery (or more like I had way too little leftover rice for the amount of sauce), but otherwise, the beef brisket and daikon dish that I got was excellent and made me very full and very full of happiness. Oh, a side of bubble tea wouldn’t hurt 😉 Off to vacation tomorrow – may not post for a while. Happy holidays!
I’ve wanted to try the food at Buddy Cafe down the street for a while, and got the chance today before my drive to Waterloo. I was just in time for the end of breakfast, and decided to get the rice noodles with beef brisket. I gotta say I was actually moderately impressed as the food was better than I had expected 😉
I went to Dan, a friend’s restaurant in downtown Bordeaux, for lunch today. Hidden in a little alley, they’ve been open for about 3 months and I’ve wanted to go try their fusion-style Chinese cuisine ever since it was advertised. This is called “Nouilles Ho Fan sautées au boeuf mariné et soja frais”, which is a variation of the classic Cantonese beef fried noodles. I gotta say it was quite a pleasant surprise and definitely an exquisite meal!
