After long time my friend and I had dinner at Shun Xin.
My friend took me to a almost wole in the wall resturant on Tulegatan 36 with really nice wok. The place had only more or less 5 tabels. At the same time kind of a big menu to compare to the size of the resturant. The menu had chicken, duke and beef.
My friend had beef and in my case was chicken with green curry. The dish was hot and not to hot, I could eat the dish without any problems. I do not really think I could eat wok everyday, but once in the blue moon is enough. Overall the dinner was nice.
Hm… The dinner was better than I though, or at least the gravy dishes.
The roti was too less thin and felt like the bread was homemade massproduction. Anyway, they had paneer, veg malai kofta, chicken and lamb on top of that chole. In my taste they had better dinner than I expected, at least I could feel the flavours. But, the cue to get the food was too long after sometime.
Before I went to the gym I made my very first sweet potato soup. Before I started with the cooking, I did some research on recipes becasue I have never done sweet potato soup. However, in the end there was no recipe whcih I followed.
The base is with Indian spices such as tumeric powder, chilli, cumin and some more. I got this amazing taste from teh spices and something extra most likelt from the sweet potato. On top of that the soup had some food yogurt.
To get some extra food, chicken was fried while I heated the soup up. One thing fore sure, I would love to make sweet potato soup again.
Oh this food from last evening was a bit too spicy for me. Too hot and it is burning. I can promise the food had a lot of garlic. But the cooking took such a long time. More or less 2 hours but it turn out really nice. THe chickens meat were soft. I can not wait to get some proper food. On the other side, Indian food smells a lot while cooking. I mean, a lot the clothes get the smell too….
Anyway, sometimes it is fun too cook non common food.
Yesterday was a long day with limited amount of sleep. We manage to arrange a comfortable evening at my parents house. The whole family was at home and made homemade pizza.
The pizza dough was already bought, so we skiped by making our own dough. But we did the topping is after our taste. The pizza had wildmeat on one side with mozzarella, tomatoes and on the other side clams, mushrooms and mozzarella. THe waiting time was only 15 munites and the pizza was flooded with water from the mozzarella and the tomatoes. However, the pizza turn out amazing!
The pizza was so good!
My dear brother took me out for dinner at K25. We went to one of Stockholm best sushi places, and I can say the sushi tasted really good. The pices were fresh and the rice was not too sticky which sometime the rice can be. On top of the shushi pices were not too big either, there were no problem to eat one pice at a time.
The funniest part was that my brother told me about how to eat sushi. For example, the rice should not be in soya and instead the fish. Than my question is HOW?! I did not try to dip the fish, to dip the rice is so much easier.
The Sushi place is Hattori also located at Drottninggatan in Stockholm.
A very popular dinner place is KB at Smålandsgatan, next to Birger Jarlsgatan. I would say the dishes are more of Swedish type. Also, the veg dishes are very limited. Anyways, the place is nice to visit because the walls are painted and the rooms are a bit dark.
The food is good and heavy and a lot, so you won’t be hungry after a meal at KB.
My friend come over to my parents house to have dinner. with us. Tortilla evening which mean I had too much. I am so weak for tortilla… I love, love to chose what I want in my bread. Also, it is so simple to make it, prepare veg and heat up the chicken pices.
After the dinner my friend and I went to the bar man in the moon. The place has a lot a lot of different sort of beer. Many different beers and all sort of prices from the week beer for 45 sek to 3000 sek.
Nowadays I have become so lazy with my cooking. I have no energy to put any effort to make it look special or even tasty because in the end it is only me who is going to eat the food. Me and me every single day. Kind of sad to think about it, however, at least I get all I need hopfully.
Of course when I am cooking I use a lot of spices such as masala, tumeric powder and chili. I need at least chili to make the food good. When the burning part is missing, the food does not taste that great.
Today is sunday and the time passing by way too fast. Last night I got some funny mess from a friend.
He was wondring why is pizza circle and is packed sqare boxes and the slizes are triangles. The question was why how come.
I have no clue, I think making a pizza is easier in sqare than in circle. But what do I now?
My replay was, why is chapati circle while naan bread has a totaly different shape. The only time chapati is not in a cicle is when a amateur making chapati, than chapati look more like India or Australia.
