Overall, i find their soup is salty and perhaps laden with MSG, Hoho steamboat is better

I have fond memories of awesome mint brownie made by my housemate Kim during university days which i can’t help having pieces and pieces of. And finally now i tried making it.

Ingredients: Recipe from Serious Eats’ Alpine Mint Brownie

1/2 teaspoon salt
1 tablespoons dark unsweetened cocoa powder
156g dark chocolate
coarsely chopped 115g unsalted butter, cut into 1-inch pieces
100g granulated sugar
30g firmly packed light brown sugar
2.5 large eggs, at room temperature
1 teaspoons pure vanilla extract

For The Mint Filling
100g confectioner’s sugar
40g unsalted butter
1 tablespoons milk
1/2 teaspoons mint extract

For The Ganache Glaze
85g ounces chocolate chips or chopped chocolate
40g ounces butter change from heavy cream to milk
some recipe say 1/2 teaspoon mint

to make the frosting, i used Fox’s mint sweet as the mint flavoring is kinda expensive and not going to use it often. Icing sugar, unsalted butter, a few Fox mint melted in microwave with some water The mint frosting turn out barely minty :(

Recipe: Egg Tart

Recipe from Cook.Bake.Love

Tips 1: Only 80% full for fillings, else it WILL oveflow
Tips 2: Make the pastry edge higher than the mould for easier removal

This is a disaster that all the egg mixture overflowed and cause the dough to be either caramelised and burn or soft dough from the overflowed egg. Not in picture is me removing the tart which sticks to the mould, and put in for further baking in the oven with only lower heat to crisp up the soft dough

Second attempt is a failed one too, i thought i already filled it  till only 8o% only, but i guess maybe i did stretch the dough when putting the skin on the mould and it overflow again when baked, so NEXT TIME i might just bake the shell first, so that i won’t overfill the tart again ie below

- Prebake shell for 3 minutes (250C)
- Bake for another 10 mins with filling

all rolled into mold

urgh, the skin start shrinking the the filling starts overflowing :S

Looks ok here, but if you look carefully, the egg fillings are overflowed for 90% of the tarts

See?

Souffle3

Glimpse of the menu before i was stopped taking photos of their menu

Souffle3

La Nordique, around RM35, made of i think buckwheat flour top with smoke salmon, serve with cream fraiche?! Taste not bad, although the middle got slightly soggy from the moisture of the salmon.

Souffle3

Salad that came with the pancake/crepe, with pine nut, beetroot etc

Souffle3

Shoestring Fries, RM10, just normal, wanted a more satisfying straight cut fries, explains my rounds of supermarket lusting over those fat straight cut fries from Lamb Weston

Souffle3

Just down the road from La Creperie is Nosh famed for their desserts

Souffle3

Valrhona Heaven, yummy chocolatey dessert, RM34, the chocolate tart based with bitter tartshell of cocoa aroma and smooth chocolate ganache filling.
