DESSERTS... cure for the STRESSED (21 Apr)
Went out with Mirian and Sylvia on last Thursday evening to destress. At first, we were just thinking of taking some desserts. But then, desserts with an empty stomach, not such a good idea.
So, we went to Hub to have our dinner. Besides the always being ordered spicy potato and omelette soba, here were the few other new things that we had that day.
This is garlic flavored deep-fried mushroom. Well, it was disappointing. Tasteless, and the frying was not good too. Can't really remember the price, think it was around 530yen.
Dry curry fried rice with a half-boiled egg. Yum Yum~ strongly recommended. The egg went very well with the not too spicy rice. Sylvia was thinking of ordering the 2nd one, but cancelled the idea to replace with something else. Think it was for 680yen.
Japanese style spaghetti with deep-fried Chinese mushroom that grown on tea plant. 680yen per plate. We were very impressed by the mushroom. It was very crunchy, though a little bit salty. But went very nice with the spaghetti. The mushroom released an irresistible fragrance for every bite I made.
Another great infusion of Japanese elements into a Western food. Instead of using the normal tomato, basil and salami... This Mentaiko Mochi Pizza was using Japanese Rice Cake and Spicy Fish Egg as main ingredient for the pizza, with nori stripes to decor the top. Wisely combined, a Japo-Italian style?
Hehe... though we had a heavy dinner, we still went to our main purpose for the nite. To DESTRESS. And for that, my STRESSED mind can only be effectyively cured by DESSERTS. Kekeke... believe it or not, it is the most effective medicine, that's why is it spell back to front from the word STRESSED. (Thanks Sylvia for telling me this. ^_^)
So ladies, next time if you are crazing for DESSERTS, don't feel guilty. We NEED it!!
We went to Haagen Dazs to have a great cup of ice creams. It was the last day for Special 7-Scoop offering. The 7-Scoop will be replaced by Special Cup. Well, don't really know what is the Special-Cup concept.
However, it was my first time having the 7-scoop in Kyoto. My 2nd time indeed, 1st time was in Tokyo with the Tokyo's Devils, long time ago. For these 7 scoops, it was only for 500yen. Very good deal. Hehe... and it was a treat by Sylvia, for celebrating fish fish got her license. ^o^
My hand and the big cup. Hohoho!!
My choices were : Rum Raisin, Belgian Chocolate, Macadamia Nut, Caramel Walnut, Mango, Cassis Cream and Chai Tea.
Mango, Cassis Cream and Chai Tea were my 1st time. I would say all the choices I made were good. Rum Raisin wildnesss, Belgian Chocolate hidden bitterness, Macadamia Nut creaminess, Caramel Walnut sweetness, Mango chewiness, Cassis Cream sourness and finally the very unique Indian style Chai. Mmmm~~~ divine~~~
And this was the cup of Sylvia. She chose quite similar flavours as mine, except 2.
By the time we finished the big cup, our stomach were bloating like overeating-frogs.
