Crispy Pork Belly, New Rangehood & Amazing Eats

I finally get my kitchen back!! I finally get my kitchen back!! Hubby took almost a week to finish up his rangehood installation project. Our kitchen was in a complete mess for most of this week, and whilst I was lovin’ eating out, after a while you just want to be able to cook whatever you feel like eating, you know what I mean?
Funny enough, I know I have my kitchen back but first thing on my To Eat list was nothing fancy or time consuming despite my slight feeling of being deprived of cooking. On the contrary, I felt like a “pub-ish” meal and Christened our new rangehood cooking Crispy Pork Belly with Tarragon, and some fries and veggies. Perhaps I also kept it really simple so there wasn’t yet ANOTHER mess to clean up!
As for the rangehood, check it out.. it’s nice and new and shiny stainless steel. I almost don’t want to cook anything oily so it remains clean and shiny!
I’ve had amazing eats this week though, please excuse the quality of the photos below as I take you through a chronicle of my yummy eats taken with my trusty BlackBerry:
Korean BBQ feast at Korean Hyeung Jae BBQ House in Footscray. I was having too much fun I only remembered to take a photo just as we were about to finish eating!! We had the Kimchi Fried Rice, Beef Bulgogi, Vegetarian Pancake, Wagyu & Pork Belly BBQ. Yumm!!
Pork Festival (Twitter hashtag #porkfest) at The Provincial Hotel, Fitzroy. An amazing and fun night with my fellow food bloggers and Twitter friends. Great laughs and incredible food. Unfortunately my DSLR camera battery died but I wasn’t stressed. After all, I was surrounded by food bloggers! I am STILL waiting for them to blog about the night, and when they do I will be sure to share their posts with you all!
Dinner at Ambrosia Cafe and Restaurant, Berwick. As you all may or may not know, I live in Berwick which is a South Eastern Suburb approx. 40 minutes away from Melbourne. So it’s not exactly CBD and a lot of my friends don’t even know where Berwick is. So I am just proud to say that despite its almost “outback” location, Berwick has some pretty decent restaurants that can put some CBD restaurants to shame. Ambrosia is one of them, and these photos above prove my point.
By the way, I tweet all these pictures in detail – so if you’re not already following me on Twitter, make sure you do!
Lazy Friday Night at Secret Recipe, Fountain Gate (Narre Warren). Also not too far away from home, is miraculously, pretty close to authentic Malaysian food served at Secret Recipe. This restaurant (located in a shopping centre) may not seem like much – after all, it presents a confusing menu of a mixture of Western breakfast, and Malaysian / Western / Italian mains to choose from. Strange variety, but works for me! I come here just for my chicken curry and sambal fix. Between hubby and I, we shared the Nasi Lemak and the Roti Canai with Chicken Curry. Had a wonderful lazy Friday night out with friends and a movie afterwards.
So I guess this blog post is more of a summary that doesn’t go too much in detail, but pretty much just wrapped up my Twitter feed? Looks like “micro blogging” via Twitter has been really convenient, but it’s time to get serious again and not let the “hard work” involved in actual blogging turn me off.
Do you have the same problem I do? Do you find yourself blogging less and less thanks to 140 characters and convenience of Twitter?
