Bun Thit Nuong & Lahmacun

>> Friday, March 7, 2008

Bun Thit Nuong- a rice vermicelli (mee hoon) dish served with grilled pork & LOADS of vegetables! It comes with chopped peanuts & a special sauce called Nước chấm.

One has to pour the sauce over the dish & mix the 'ingredients' together before savouring it :P The experience of mixing is SO alike tossing the 'yee sang' during Chinese New Year! The only things different were the ingredients & that the person eating is the only one tossing the ingredients together...teehee :D

Quite a delicious & healthy meal of Bun Thit Nuong. It's cheap too!! RM5.90 for a very good portion!

I had this for dinner yesterday night at the Asia Cafe in Subang. Asia Cafe is quite a famous place for their variety of food & their cyber cafe/pool centre too. It's quite a good place to hang out for a meal & a good catch up since it's like an open-air sort of 'food court' & there are so many seats available that no one will 'shoo' you away if you sit there through the entire day :P

This place is thronged with people, mostly students, as it is situated directly opposite Taylor's College & Inti College in Subang Jaya (Metropolitan College is nearby too!) :) I reckon there are at least 80-100 stalls at that place, offering various style of food, from the usual Chinese food, to Japanese, Korean, Vietnamese, Thai, Malay, Indian, Western, etc... choice of food is excellent, but the taste, of course is not as excellent :P Teehee...

I had a good time at yesterday's dinner though :) It was one of those rare times when Anne & I met up with 3 of our close uni friends for a meal together. It's been all too long since we had such a time...almost 2 months, if I'm not mistaken. Our last meet up was during the Shabu-Shabu dinner at Puchong Puteri!

*****
I guess I'm 'going east'! Yesterday night, I had Vietnamese food for dinner, & for lunch today, I had Turkish (Istanbul) food!! :D The food that I had this afternoon is called the Lahmacun. The one that I had was Lahmacun with cheese :P

Lahmacun- Turkish 'pizza': specially made bread (pita) topped with minced chicken, onions, vegetables, & herbs, baked to perfection ;) RM4.00
I couldn't really remember its name & was guessing between 'Labahmun' & 'Lamahbun', but of course, none of my 2 guesses were correct....hahaha....thanks to Google, I found out the exact name of the dish! *lol* I made sure that I remember the name of the 'pizza' that I ate this afternoon, but I guess it digested along with the Lahmacun itself! *rofl*

Teehee...well, there were actually 6 of us GTs who went to MMU for lunch! *lol* It's not as if the food there is better than elsewhere, but it's just that Mei wanted to get something done at MMU itself, so we just landed up at one of their canteens for lunch :) Just imagine this... there were 6 of us (2 tall guys & 4 medium-size girls!), & we traveled 8 mins from our office to MMU in a KANCIL!! *lol* I wouldn't want to do it again... :S

This Lahmacun that I had was from a stall in one of the MMU canteens :P It is actually quite tasty ;) The crust is not very thin, but thin in a way; it's crispy at the corners & at certain parts soft. Cheese just went well with it, making it very alike the usual Italian pizzas that we have :) I kinda like it & look forward to try out more Turkish food from authentic Turkish restaurants! :D

Ah, these are the joyous times ;) Work, work, work, meeting, meeting, meeting,... hang-outs like these are the best to keep me going somehow... :D
