Miscellaneous food musings, food photos taken over period of 1 year i guess, and finally clear all backlog of food photos from my Ipod after posting following 43 photos below.

Misc1-BEN_General_Store1

Ben’s Grocer in Publika, above is crabmeat corn salad with fish pie. The salad is quite refreshing with fresh corns and some arugula/rockets. The fish pie though loaded with ingredients(fish, mussel etc), i find the sauce quite milky and rich

Misc2-BEN_General_Store2

Orecchiette pea salad and mushroom lagsana with pesto, the mushroom lasagna bechamel sauce is quite rich as well, and i find it is loaded with the cheaper oyster mushroom instead of the tastier and more expensive fresh white mushroom

Misc3-Delicious1
