Petit Provence @ The Central

Posted by icyelite on July 27, 2008

Have you ever tried a soft croissant that is not crispy and delicious? If you had never tried it before, try it at Petit Provence.

Soft Croissants

My brother introduced this soft croissant called wassant in Japanese. It comes in 2 flavours, cream and chocolate. Chocolate is a must try for all. I am not someone who really loves chocolate but even I got attracted to this chocolate-flavored soft croissant.

How does it taste? Lol. Just like what the name says, it is soft, texture is as soft as a fresh bread even after few days. When you bite the chocolate flavour, you can taste and smell the chocolate. I tired heating it up after leaving the wassant outside for a day, but it doesn’t taste as good. I can’t smell or taste any chocolate after heating up, maybe I had overheat it?

Price. Each wassant costs $0.60, you can buy individually or in a pack. In a pack, there are 10 wassants. It is either 10 cream wassants or 10 chocolate wassants or 5 cream wassants and 5 chocolates wassants. There is no special pricing for a packet, it costs $6 per pack.

If you are going to The Central next time, remember to look out for Petit Provence.

Vegetarian Hamburger

Posted by icyelite on July 2, 2008

Hamburger, a food that I always envy people having get to eat a hamburger outside anytime, anywhere they want. For me, I will need to go special food stall that sells vegetarian food and stalls that sells hamburger. It is not every stalls that sells western food like hamburger. In addition, at times, even though the stall got sell, they may only sell it at a specific period of the day or particular day of the week.

Doesn’t it seems troublesome as described in the first paragraph? Haha, that’s why I had thought of a better idea. Wouldn’t it be nice if I can prepare it myself? DIY, you can add any ingredients, more vegetables, more chili, and more and more of anything I want. In fact, preparing a vegetarian hamburger is very easy and cheaper than what is selling outside.

The “meat” of the hamburger can simply be vegetarian ham or vegetarian bacon. Or more expensive mock meat made of mushroom, or any vegetarian chicken/fish/beef that is used for western food like vegetarian chicken/fish chop.

The bread of the hamburger, you can choose to use burger bread or normal bread (to further save costs). In addition, you can choose whether you want burger bread with sesame seeds or without. Do note that if you bought a burger with sesame seeds, do be careful the sesame seeds may drop all over while you are packing or eating.

The choice of vegetables. Usually, burgers will go along with lettuce or another vegetable similar to lettuce is butterhead. In addition to the lettuce, add cucumbers or sukini (Japanese cucumber) in the hamburger. You can find all these vegetables in the supermarket.

The choice of sauce. A simple sauce will be chili sauce or ketchup sauce. Some other sauce will be mayonnaise sauce, it all depends on your liking.

Recipe of vegetarian hamburger

Ingredients:

Hamburger bread
Margarine
Vegetarian mock meat
Lettuce
Cucumber/ Sukini

Preparations:

  1. Pan-fried the vegetarian mock meat.
  2. Pluck and wash the lettuce.
  3. Slice the cucumber into pieces.
  4. Slice open 3/4 of the hamburger bread.
  5. Spread margarine onto to both sides of the bread.
  6. Slowly put in the vegetarian mock meat, lettuce and cucumber.

Finishing: Lastly, put the hamburger on the plate and serve with chili/ketchup/mayonnaise sauce.

Doesn’t it seems easy? It will be more economical if you do a few more for yourself, your family and your friends.

French Toast and Half-boiled eggs

Posted by icyelite on June 3, 2008

Food for thought for breakfast? You can try making french toast yourself. It is very easy and only needs few basic ingredients that you definitely can find at home.

If you have leftover breads that is going to expire or is already expired for 1 or 2 days, you can used it to make french toast. This way, you won’t waste it or feeling heart pain by throwing it away. Please take note that you don’t use any bread that is expired and has become mouldy. I won’t be responsible if you have any food poisoning.

It can be any breads that you can find at home, but preferably plain white bread or multi-grain breads whichever you think will be suitable to make french toast. I had never try any french toast that is made from corn bread, chocolate bread or any other fanciful bread you can find in supermarket now. If you want, you can give it a try, maybe the taste will be wonderful too. In the picture below, I had actually used multi-grain breads.

This french toast is similar to the french toast you always order from Ya Kun or Wang Jiao. Just that they have a thicker layer of egg covering the bread and some kaya paste to eat along. Make some half-boiled eggs too, so you will feel more filling.

Recipe for Half-boiled Eggs

  1. Immerse the eggs into hot boiling water for 5 to 7 minutes
  2. You are ready to serve with pepper and dark soy sauce
