Air-Fryer Salmon

I wanted to cook salmon for dinner, so I went to buy a fresh and good piece of salmon from the supermarket in the morning. With just salt and pepper and some mixed herbs, I put it into the air fryer and set the temperature at 200°c for 12 minutes. It worked the wonder for you.

My verdict for this piece of salmon is…
It was crispy on the top, juicy on the bottom, it was not overly marinated, can taste the lovely fresh salmon.


Sumire Yakitori House

Sumire Yakitori House
Address: 80 Middle Rd, #01-88/89, 188966 Singapore.

I visited this Japanese restaurant earlier this month, hours before my half marathon with my cousin and my aunt. I asked my friend for a suggestion of Japanese restaurants in town with reasonable price. She told me to go Sumire Yakitori House, which she brought me here last year after my NUS’ event.

We chose from the set lunch menu. We added ala-carte flame-seared salmon sushi rolls and hot green tea.

Salmon Nishoku Chirashi Gozen
It consists of sushi rice bowl with sushi sashimi, flame-seared salmon, salad with shredded chicken, chawanmushi and miso soup.

The set lunch serving is generous and filling. The salmon is fresh. The chawanmushi, miso soup and salad are the common Japanese side dishes.

Bruny Island & Get Shucked Oyster Farm

Get Shucked Oyster Farm
Address:  1735 Bruny Island Main Road, Bruny Island, Great Bay 7150, Tasmania, Australia.

It was a day trip to the Bruny Island in Tasmania, Australia by taking our car onto the ferry service at the Kettering Port. I was not able to recall when was the last time I took a ferry from one place to another place.

It was about 11am before we reached the port and queued to get on board. The weather was good, sunny and not windy when we arrived. However, when it was about to board the ferry, the weather changed and upon reaching the island, it was cloudy and occasionally drizzling. We made a few stops in the island and we did not travel the whole island for visit.

We stopped by Get Shucked Oyster Farm, one of the recommended places to visit in Bruny Island for our oysters and of course, our lunch. We went to its restaurant which is located at entrance of the farm. We did not get to see how they process the oysters at this restaurant which I felt it was kind of disappointed.

However, their food is great, fantastic and satisfying. We ordered the oysters platters and a salmon and some drinks to be shared. We thought that we would be moving around in the island and kept trying all the food in different restaurant. So, we just ordered these two.

The oysters platter which consists of half a dozen of fresh, medium sized oysters and others are the cooked oysters in various styles. All these oysters go well with their sauces or you can just eat the oysters without dipping into the sauce. The original taste of the oysters is slightly tasted like sea water and did not have smell. Unlike, the oysters I eat in Singapore and Malaysia, they have some smell and have to dip with lemon.

This platter comes with a loaf bread with cheese. Also, we added another main which is a salmon. The size of the salmon is quite small, definitely it is not enough for six of us to try them. Each of us just get to try a small bite of the salmon.

The salmon does come with bread as well and a bowl of salad. It is supposed to be meant for a single serving which could be just good enough for a person. Since, we traveled with kids, french fries is something we cannot miss out on the table for them.

They do sell some sauces and stuffs at the side of the restaurant, nothing is interesting. The interior of the restaurant is quite simple, it does not have many tables inside but they do have bigger tables and lounge area outside of the restaurant. Okay, during the winter time, no ones will be sitting there except my travel mate, where she took a picture of a wonderful quote, “Livin’ the dream”.

From this angle, you may see the sea view directly. It is quite closed by.

TGI Friday

It was suggested by my colleagues to go to the TGI Friday at The Gardens, Mid Valley on Thursday’s evening for dinner. She said she thought of eating there all of sudden and wanted to celebrate another colleague’s belated birthday. All of us headed to the restaurant shortly after 6.30PM.

As we settled down at one of the corner tables at the restaurant, we went through the menu from front to back, from appetiser to main dishes. We spent quite long time to decide what kind of good food to have on that evening.

While waiting the food and drink to come, I took this picture below that showed the Chinese New Year decoration at this restaurant. Simple better than nothing.

Okay, my bottomless Iced Lemon Tea

Fried Mac and Cheese
Our appetiser. It was crunchy outside, cheesy inside. For me, the creamy cheese inside the crunchy breadcrumbs was just right and not too strong.

This was how it looked like when I bit it into two pieces. The creamy cheese and the macaroni.

Here is our main courses. It consisted of Cedar Seared Salmon Pasta. The salmon was pretty big pieces, almost covered the whole plate of the pasta. Haha, actually, it is because the plate was quite small. But, the salmon were really generously big pieces. 

Chicken Caesar Salad
This round, the plate was big and the salad and chicken breast meat were big too. It was quite nice with its special dressing.

Let us have a closer view of the salad.

The beef steak. I am really sorry, I do not know much about eating steak. So, I trusted my colleagues to decide the level of rawness of this steak. Was it medium well?

Let us have a closer look. It was suggested by my colleague to display the steak in this way. It garnished with many fries and some broccoli.

We were very full to finish all these food, but luckily, we have a guy to finish it all. After all, we have a lot of fun being together outside of the office.

Pepper Lunch

It was my first time trying the Pepper Lunch at the Pavilion, Kuala Lumpur. The concept looks quite interesting to me and I suggested to my friends to have lunch there.

We got to try a few different sets from the menu.

This is the Salmon and Chicken set. It comes with a bowl of white rice. It needs to mix with the butter and let the almost cooked meat to finish cooking while the hot plate is still hot.

Then, I tried this Chicken set. It has some cubed chicken with fried rice. I can say it has a lot of black pepper on top of the fried rice. Also, I needed to mix it well with all the ingredients inside this hot plate.

And this is the Salmon set. It looks similarly to the chicken set as well.

Last set is this mixed chicken with vegetable. It has a lot of ingredients inside as you can see. In addition, it comes with a bowl of rice too.

We can add some side dishes or drink when we go for the set lunch. We chose to have the ice-creams and drinks. The choices of ice-creams are green tea powder and soya bean powder. The base of the ice cream is vanilla favour.

This is the restaurant at the Pavalion.

This is how the restaurant looks like from inside.
