ever since i had the blue cheese & pear burger from relish by wild rocket, i couldn't stop thinking about it. even after a second trip there (which i've yet to blog abt), i *still* find myself thinking about it. and since i couldn't afford their burgers anymore (its 17 bucks!) i had to make it myself, and i'm so glad i did. i only wish i made it earlier coz it tasted SO GOOD.
korean stir-fried glass noodles. previously when i had it 3 times, once at a korean friend's place and twice in restaurants, i didn't like it. but my homecooked version didn't taste half as bad! maybe i was generous with the ingredients, and the sesame oil. definitely making this again, if only the 당면 (dang myeon) isn't so expensive :( i got the 500g packet for 8 bucks! in korea this is served more as a side dish but its also sufficient enough to eat it on its on as a meal. i'm also in a mood for korean food so i forsee i'll be dishing out 닭갈비 (dakgalbi), 자장면 (jajang myeon), 삼계탕 (samgyetang) & 된장 찌개 (doenjang jjigae) in no time! that should be enough to feed my hungry-for-anything-korean soul for awhile :D
as i ate this yum yet unpretentious bowl of beef stew, my heart literally wept. why? coz this is by far the most expensive homecooked meal, yet! as if the addition of guinness stout & red wine wasn't expensive enough, absent-minded me actually left that grocery bag on the bus, the one with the stout & the little bottle of red wine, OF ALL BAGS!! can u imagine that? that bag alone actually cost me about 20 bucks, coz i had other stuff inside, like the tarragon i intended to make hollandaise sauce with *ROAR* so i went out buying the stout & red wine AGAIN, therefore this meal ended up costing me about 30 bucks in total!
