Sushi Station Fuji is a discovery for us...especially when we have had some opportunities to have reallllllly good Japanese food in Singapore.... we are always on a lookout for good Japanese food in Perth, whilst there are many so call Japanaese restaurants around... not many are authentic. We had Sashimi to start (they had a assortment of Salmon, Tuna and Kingfish... we didnt like Octupus and requested it not to be served...i think we got an extra piece of fish for that :P). I had noodles in spicy seafood broth (comes with pieces of scallops, chicken, 1 large prawn, lots of veggie and 2 huge pieces of tofu) .., absolutely delicious and would be perfect in winter....i felt a bit hot after eating but nonetheless, no regrets there. DH had the bento box with a bit of everything .... a piece of fish katsu dropped out from another bento box and fell on our table as the waitress was bring around the food... i thought i was quite funny to see a piece of fish hanging out from one of the bento boxes and pointed out to her... she was actually quite shocked and kept apologizing... we had to assure her there wasnt any problem... later she came back and gave us an extra piece of fish katsu.... how nice... thats Good service... Sushi Station Fuji is a must to try for all Japanese food lovers... and i love its cozy little restaurant environment... can just imagine we are in Tokyo :) We were so stuffed with food i actually left the restaurant without my bag... opps! Luckily we were not very far... and when I went back...it was still there.... phew! that'll teach me to be greedy next time
Still talking about food.... DH and I have been baking and of course....eating (again!!) I bought this annual dessert magazine a couple of weeks ago and there were sooo many recipes I wanted to try out... Our aim is to try out at least 5o% of the recipes in the mag. In the end, DH and I decided that the chocolate cupcake with pistachio ice cream and hot chocolate fudge sauce featured on the cover page had to be the first .... turned out very well...though it was not exactly like the picture on the magazine (cos we were lazy to pipe additional icing around the icecream....) took us almost 45mins including preparation to make it... and less than a min to devour it all... we must looked like piggies then :PAnother success...moist carrot cake with cream cheese filling.... also from the same magazine....Daniel and I did it last Sat..... It was suppose to be 5 layers... we were too scared to cut and break the cake... so it stayed at three layers... :P Next time, I think i will split the batter and bake them in portions so i dont need to cut them at all...just assemble... shall see what happens....
We have appointed one of our pastor at church Pastor Cara (adoringly called Aunty Soks by us) as our "food taster" .... very important job.... actually we didnt ask her...we just kept bring her food.... hahahaha..... dont think she minds :p thanks Aunty Soks :)
