I'm STILL a self confessing, self professing know-it-all, or so I think!

Pastizzi Lunch!!

… more of a snack, even though I had two of them … and no matter what I do at home I tell my Maltese friend, never are they as good as these … it’s our oven, I’m consoled!

Jerk

… Jerk Pork!! Used to come here quite regularly, MANY MANY years ago. As luck would have it, I was nearby … and effing starving, making today’s lunch decision an easy one. Here’s my Jerk Pork (lunch special), and don’t forget to ask for the oxtail gravy …

Look at all the meat, AND gravy …

Charles in charge!!

Went to my fave Hakka joint today, ordered lunch to go (as you can see from the styro container), but as I was leaving, Charles the owner corralled me and insisted I sit and dine in the restaurant … so I did. He, his family … all his employees (many, long time employees) are all of Chinese descent, but born in India (on a side note; funny to hear him speak English fluently … with a British accent, lol) … hence the hot/spicy influence … think of it (Indian Hakka cuisine) as Chinese food kicked up a notch. He also tones it done if you want, today I did … told him to surprise me. In nothing flat tossed this together in his smoking hot wok for me … chicken chow mein he said … yep, yum!!
