S01E5: Le Food & Le Drink: Taiwanese Beef Noodle Soup (Recipe)

You’ll have to excuse me for this post because the last recipe I wrote up was in primary school as part of those class exercises. Probably for Fairy Bread or something (the best).

Something a bit different this time for this series of food posts; a recipe. I think most of us feel like a homely meal is always the best despite the great food that’s out there. Food brings back memories and it’ll always have that link.

For me, a good bowl of Taiwanese Beef Noodle Soup from mum has always been one of my favourite dishes and it would always be exciting when she cooks it. However it’s been years since she’s last cooked this and I don’t think she’ll be doing it again anytime soon so.. she’s tried passing it onto me!

It's like having a master class! Gotta take notes..

S01E04: Le Food & Le Drink: Hartsyard (AKA go vertical!)

Better write this up. So before semester 2, 2014 (just before July?) started 3/4 of the nom nom crew visited Newtown to roll dice at trying to get a table at Hartsyard. Mad fail. E had a look afterwards to try book online and the earliest date we could find was like 3 months later.. I guess that means it’s just as good as Tetsuya’s then.

S01E03: Le Food & Le Drink: Tokonoma (AKA pro foodbloggers only)

I have been holed up in my little bunker at home for awhile. I feel like my skin hasn’t been graced with the presence of sunlight for awhile now. It’s been a pretty tough week as well, one of the longer ones recently.

I have an assignment deadline looming over me with ones that have larger weighting in queue.. the 2nd half of this semester is going to be a real test of will. I feel like my games are starting to talk to me – “play me, play me..” or my sport equipment whispering, reminding me to exercise and making me feel guilty..

Ah food.. you’re the only one that understands me.

So E organised this deal for Tokonoma today, which was a good opportunity to catch up with the cafe/food buddies.

Pilot: Le Food & Le Drink: Long Shot Cafe

Let’s consider this my little side-procrastination project for now..

A friend/colleague (here’s your plug =P) has been telling me to log a lot of this myself (hey, she’s the food blogger.. geez) but I am pretty lazy. I’ll see if I can put a fun twist on it though.

It’s going to take a few posts to figure out how to do this properly and in my own style, but we’ll keep it a shot.
