Food Review #207

French Toast With Mushroom Gravy & Chicken Sausages at French Toast Cafe & Bakery – I would have thought that the mushroom gravy on the French toast would have been too much but it was pretty delicious. Their coffees though are pretty weak; the Iced Americano was blah!

Happy Yule To You

Well, happy 25th of December to everyone wherever you are. Just another Monday but I get the day off so I am happy about it. Today I was planning on just staying at home and enjoying myself with some movies and buy dinner via home delivery and drink a couple of beers. Well my folks ended up going to a relative’s house along with my sister and niece for lunch so I thought I’d buy some chicken for meself.

I thought maybe pizza from Dominos or Pizza Hut for a while, since they go really well with beer but I was really in the mood for fried chicken. So I ordered a three piece from Chick King with French fries, some mayo and garlic sauce in these small containers. It was yum! I drank my beer and ate my chicken and enjoyed a quite afternoon at home.

I fell asleep at 3pm and took a long nap so I will be up for a while after I go to bed so I will watch a movie or two. Hope you all have had a good day.

Cafe Coffee Day’s American Classic Burger (Actually Sliders) – chicken cutlet patties, onions, lettuce. I wish Indian restaurants and cafes would stop calling things like American Classic when we could actually go to war with them for this ridiculous named item which falls short. The chicken patties were bland and the score of 6 is a generous one. When we are getting individually owned joints that do an awesome job in making juicy delicious burgers, a big franchise like CCD is making below par stuff.

Kitchen Konfidentials

What is your most vivid memory of the kitchen in your childhood?

That is a tough one. I honestly am not sure and cannot pinpoint a single memory about the kitchen that was in the apartment my parents, my sister and I lived in during our time in Kuwait. I was born in Kuwait City and lived there till I was almost 11 years old and then moved to India.

I guess during those years I associate the kitchen with tuna – odd choice, maybe? But I and my family love tuna. We lightly fry them and ate them in sandwiches with a little cheese. Or even some as a side to rice and curry. Them and fish fingers which were another favourite of my family. Mom cooked some up that you got in that box and she gave them to us as a snack and dad loved it too.

For other reasons I also associate that kitchen with eggs – omelets, scrambled, hard boiled or bullseyes – and Hungry Bunny burger patties, which you bought frozen and cooked in a pan. Man, those were the days.

Route 66 Burger & The Winston Burger At Cocoa Tree – Similar burgers with beef patties, fried eggs, bacon and tomatoes – The Winston does not come with gherkins while the Route 66 does. Really good burgers. French fries and shakes on the side.

Burger King’s The Shanghai Whopper has a never before combination of the signature Kung Pao Sauce and Crispy fried noodles for the authentic yin-yang flavors of Chinese cuisine. The mouth-watering Whopper continues to have the soft Sesame buns along with a flame-grilled patty made from 100% chicken for non-veg lovers. This unique burger is topped off with cheesy jalapeno sauce, onions, fresh tomatoes, crunchy lettuce and a slice of cheese

Burgeria is a nice standalone burger joint (though they have a new outlet up somewhere, I will have to confirm). This is their Mushroom cheese burger – mushrooms, beef patty, cheese, tomato and lettuce. I had French Fries and a peanut butter smoothie on the side.
