This Rolled Rice Noodles are also called Chee Cheong Fun and served steamed with a sweet soy dressing and sprinkled with sesame seeds.  I’ve put a twist to this yummy rolled rice noodles and made a stir fry.  The pieces of rolled rice noodles becomes soft once cooked and the sweet and salty sauce has that moreish effect.

KULINARYA COOKING CLUB

 

Kulinarya’s theme for the month of February 2011 is FILIPINO APHRODISIAC FOOD.

 

For this month’s Filipino dish theme, to tell you the truth I was a bit lost as the only Filipino Aphrodisiac Food I know is Balut and Soup No.5 (Filipino Soup with Bull’s “you know what!”).  This two main Filipino Aphrodisiac Food have that famous urban myth with the locals that it will give males longer stamina in that private exercises that usually occurs behind the bedroom doors.  If you haven’t known yet, there’s something about animal private parts associates with human sexual drives in Asian countries….but chicken butts is grouped separately because it’s associated with being talkative (Filipino urban myth) if you eat too much, LOL!

Mr. H and I, celebrated our 13th Wedding Anniversary last week by trying out something different.  I’ve been eyeing Maru for sometime now and the reason why we haven’t visited it sooner was that I thought it would be too hot/spicy for the rest of the TRIBE.  Last time I went to a Korean Restaurant in Fortitude Valley with my sister and her Korean friend, we ate fiery hot dishes and I was sweating like I was sitting inside a dry sauna.

CUSINERA’S HOMEMADE BREAD CRUMBS

CUSINERA'S HOME MADE BREAD CRUMBS© BUSOG! SARAP! 2011

Whenever we have leftover old and stale slice bread or rolls, I collect them and store them inside a freezer bag till I have enough to make homemade breadcrumbs.  What I love about this breadcrumbs is that even when you freeze it, it still have the same texture and doesn’t clump together.

KAINAN SA VALLEY – FORTITUDE VALLEY

 

Kainan sa Valley is Best Friends answer for a Filipino Takeaway joint that offers ready to eat Filipino dishes for the busy Filipinos who doesn’t have time to cook or doesn’t know how to or like the TRIBE, who wants to eat other people’s cooking for a change.  I for one love to taste other people’s cooking, I find it exciting to my taste buds.  My “Kuya” (older brother) notice that earlier when I started cooking that I have the tendency to buy takeaway food whenever I did a marathon cook off at my parents house.

This is actually the first takeaway (turo-turo style) Filipino shop I’ve ever seen here in Brisbane.  They have a great selection of Filipino dishes on offer and because it’s already on display you don’t have to wait for certain dishes to be cook like in a restaurant.  What you see is what you get=)
