traditional roasted duck | 19.03.2014

traditional roasted duck

說起烤鴨,麼麼皮包著香嫩烤鴨肉及青瓜,加一點甜麵醬來吃,相信沒有人不喜歡。回想起小時候,大人帶我去吃烤鴨,總覺得整件事好隆重。在餐廳裡見著廚子現場片鴨,還有即場做手拉麵,每次去總會目不轉睛地看著,心裡著實覺得好厲害。對於我熱愛烤鴨的程度,實在是很高的。 現在要吃烤鴨很容易,在很多餐廳也吃得到,而且吃法亦有很多變化,做法也份外講究,連帶配料也變得越來越精美。去吃烤鴨的餐廳大家各有心水,有人喜歡去老派餐館,如鹿鳴春。而我呢?比較喜歡去酒店裡的中菜廳,坐得舒服,吃也吃得自在點。今期在這裡向大家推介的幾家,可會是你的心水?...

Bone Marrow: Love it or Hate it?

Yep, it is not everyone's cup of tea, but if it's yours, oh boy, isn't that the most sumptuous, decadent, and orgasmic taste on earth? Obviously it is my cup of tea.
