Easter chocolate avocado – Des Gâteaux & du Pain

20 Mar

My favorite pastry shop released its Easter chocolates and my parents just sent me one. It’s an milk and white chocolate avocado. Sad to say it, but the chocolate isn’t really good. You have bubbles in the chocolate= problems with air during the making process, and the flavor isn’t really strong. But what is nice is that they really work on the appearance of the avocado and you can even see the brush strokes on the chocolate and that the chocolate itself isn’t too sweet asome chocolatiers tend to make milk and white chocolate. That’s where you can see that’s handmade. Not really good, but nice piece of work. I have to add that my chocolate traveled during 1 week through plane so i thing with the temperature and pressure differences it must have altered the taste.

Pasta the Risotto way from Frechon

20 Mar

I just finally got a picture since i made them! That’s only the 4th time that i have pasta since September! First time of my life that i so few pasta. I was so in lack so i bought everything to made them again (which is really expensive here because of the cheese and the meat). I just added an onion and an herb that tastes like liquorice but that looks like big basilica leaves (which i first mistook with basilica). I don’t know what it was since it’s written in chinese…

Hi Sushi

20 Mar

Today, i went to a sushi bar with my friends. I only picked 2 dishes because i wanted to keep some stapce for the dessert (yeah again but i was -again- depressed and since it was also linked to the day before…). This is nice if you want affordable sushi with good value for money. The two i had were nice, if not awesome. I know that a lot of exchange students go there. My friends recommanded me the tuna which was great because it’s half cooked. I also tried the 2 maki on the right, with dried pork, eggs and salad. They were average.

Depending the sushi you pick, you can have ones from 40NTD to 150NTD.
