One Man’s Meat Is Another Man’s Poison

話說某天﹐神聖的兔子約了我們去吃晚餐。

地點是離我們家不遠的Happy Garden﹔

因為聽說那裡有一檔很好吃的福建麵。

可是車子才離開我們的公寓不久就停了下來。

難道是車子壞了? 正要問兔子時﹔

我發現我們的車子旁停著另一輛車﹐而裡頭正坐著我們的香茅Queen。

剎時間我們(包括香茅Queen)都傻了眼﹐

因為大家都知道神聖的兔子有個怪癖﹐

那就是吃飯的人數從來不會超過三個。

這次竟然破例同時約了我們倆和香茅Queen?

可算是一件大新聞!

當我們全都上了香茅Queen的車子後﹐

才發現沒人知道那傳聞很好吃的福建面到底在那裡。

我們只好轉移目的地﹐從Happy Garden跑到Solaris Dutamas去﹐

因為兔子說那裡有間新開的馬來餐館﹐想去試試。

如往常般﹐點菜的工作就交由兔子﹐我們只負責吃。

和他們去吃晚餐是一件很有趣的事﹐

因為大家的味覺都不一樣﹐針對同一道食物﹐大家的意見可以很不同。

像這道nasi lemak sushi吧﹐

馬少說那飯一點都不像nasi lemak﹐他不是很喜歡。

兔子說口味還不錯﹐至於我和香茅Queen則覺得很一般﹐而且那紫菜太軟了些。

接下來的是木薯糕﹐提供的佐醬竟然是sambal。

我個人不是很喜歡﹐覺得如果換成gula melaka會不錯。

但是兔子倒覺得這樣的配搭很新鮮。

還有就是lempeng﹐馬少完全不喜歡﹐兔子和香茅Queen覺得普通﹐

我呢把它當成比薩餅來吃﹐味道還不錯。

吃完了馬來餐覺得還不過癮﹐我們跑到隔壁的拉面店去續攤。

馬少喜歡他們的面﹐但覺得他們的湯頭稍遜了些。

但另一頭的香茅Queen則覺得他們的面不夠彈性﹐反而是湯頭不錯。

結果他們兩個﹔一人把面吃完﹐湯剩一半﹔

而另一個則麵剩一半﹐把湯給喝完。

早知道就只叫一碗﹐讓他們一人一半就好。

再來是炸雞塊﹐他們(兔子和Queen)覺得味道有些不足﹐

我和馬少倒喜歡它炸得很酥脆﹐而且肉質不會太乾。

One man’s meat is another man’s poison。

我覺得好吃的﹐你未必認同﹔而你喜歡的﹐也許我難以接受。

結論就是味覺這碼事是很個人的﹐

所以對雜誌或網上的一些推薦嘛就不要太在意了。

      Haha, I feel it’s ok, prefer Santouka, and of course our favourite still the one in Tokyo. :p
      Mr Mah likes the noodle not the soup and The Queen enjoys the soup but not the noodle. LOL

      1. Baby Sumo says:

        I also prefer Santouka broth, but the noodle and cha siu here is not bad.

      2. CK says:

        Mr Mah said the noodle not consistent, but cha siu quite ok. 🙂

  2. Santouka and Marutama both make better broths. I didn’t care much for the noodles or the broth here, unfortunately, but I’m still keen to try the rest of the stuff. 🙂

    1. CK says:

      Let’s go back and try together, we love that fried chicken! hahahha

  3. I have not tried the ramen at Santouka but don’t think I will drive down town for that. I can see a solution for Kenny and the Queen. Order just one bowl of noodle, one eat the noodle the other drink the soup. Love is about sharing, right. LOL!

      Come lah come lah, we can eat together there! 😀

    i think there’s one thing that everyone can agree to love: the alcoholic milkshakes i made at Plan B! so deeeeeelicious 😀

    1. CK says:

      We didnt try so we dun know, hahaha. 😛

    2. Kenny Mah says:

      Those alcoholic milkshakes you made? Let’s just say the spectacle wasn’t worth me breaking my boycott… *chuckles*

      The bit where the waiter spilled the shot of tequila on our table and then walked away without an apology? That bit was worth seeing to believe it… *winks*

    Went to Yamagoya last night. I didn’t care much for the broth or the noodles of my special ramen. But the panda’s black garlic’s broth was amazing. Noodles still a lil too soft for me. I like mine more with a bite. And the vegetable was good. So yea, what I like isn’t what you’ll like. Lets leave it at that and enjoy the company

    1. CK says:

      Totally agree, what we dun like, we can past around, sure someone will like it. LOL
      And ya, I perfer my noodle to be more al dente too.
