Soooo...it has been nearly 2 weeks since I blogged *slaps wrist*. I hope I didn't lose you all because I love each and every one of you :(
If you follow me on twitter, you may notice that I have been either terribly sick or stuffing myself sick to a terrifying level (love my play on words there) so when I get home, I just want to bum around or sleep.
To those who care, I've been sick ever since May. I've eaten countless number of medicine...capsules, granules, tablets, syrups, you name it. Coughed till I puked and it was so bad that the doctor prescribed me super strong antibiotics and cough syrup that they had to take it out from a locked cupboard. Even after all that, it didn't make much of a difference :( My. Life. Sucks.
Anywho, one of my best buddies ever since Year 9 is having a birthday! Dinner plan is a must and Suminoya here we come!
Happy Marshmallow :D
At Suminoya, we chose the Premium Buffet which costs $50 but that includes sashimi and unlimited beef tongue. It's a bit on the pricey side, especially that I don't do very well in a buffet situation.
Sashimi of Salmon, Kingfish and Tuna
Three serves of each sashimi comes out and we were sad. It was tiny. It was gone within a minute between 7 people so we know better now to order MOAR!
Ten serves of squid sashimi is still pretty small....
Spinach and Almond Salad
As I was sitting on the edge, I was given the responsibility to order the dishes. Everyone hated me for ordering vegetables...bunch of carnivores! The salad did came very handy as the BBQ started to burst into flames every now and then and the leaves were very efficient in putting it out.
Radish and Chilli Cod Salad
Loved this salad! When I say I love a salad means I love the sauce...
Three serves of yukke has again proven not enough and three more were ordered later on. I have heard some horror stories from other bloggers saying some places serve them frozen D: Luckily this one was fresh and soft and tasty with a bright golden yolk sitting happily on top.
Corn with Butter
I had some major dilemma with this baby. You see, the butter is solid and I want butter to smother all over the corn YET I don't want the corn to be hot. I tried putting the butter on a spoon and hovering it over the BBQ which definitely got some "WTF what are you doing?" stares from my friends. In the end, I got tired and the butter didn't seem to budge so my solution was to take a tiny bit of butter with every scoop of corn ... Please don't judge me.
Oh right, here are the stuff on the BBQ.
Scallops and Octopus
It was very freaky BBQing the octopus as the tentacles kept moving around and sometimes flipping over as if they were alive. I chose not to look at them and focus on my meat eating.
I thought this would be crispy but it was quite chewy and had this 'powdery' texture. Weird... and I spat it out :(
Shabu Shabu Style Pork Loin
Sizzle my babies, Sizzle!
We all ordered this very early on in the evening. My friends are a bunch of meat loving, sugar licking monsters and I love them<3
Green Tea Icecream
When I say sugar licking monster, no one compares with me. I had 3 serves of icecream and wanted more but my stomach always fails on me.
You do remember this is a birthday dinner right? No birthday is complete without CAKE! In this case, a V8 Diesel Cake from Zumbo.
V8 Diesel Cake
Please don't make fun of our old age :(
And I got some of it
-Insert inappropriate joke here-
Food Porn :D
Does this look familiar to you? It's very similar to the eight texture cake from Quay but lighter and not as overwhelmingly rich.
We also have creative personnel on the table.
