Happy Farmhouse 太湖边,漫山岛的农家乐

I went to see the 漫山岛 to have a dinner beside the beautiful Taihu Lake last weekend. It was by far the best restaurant I visited in 2018. If you ever have the chance to visit Suzhou, I highly recommend this place. All the dishes are so fresh and delicious, though they may not look that good on photos. Now I prefer to eat at the farmhouse. All the restaurants in the city is so boring. Their dishes look so good on photos, but all these taste the same to me. I am in love with the fresh cooking style in the countryside.

上周末我去看漫山岛吃农家乐,坐落于美丽的太湖边。这是迄今为止我在2018年访问过的最好的餐厅。如果你有机会参观苏州,我强烈推荐这个地方。所有的菜都非常新鲜和美味,虽然他们在照片上看起来不太好。现在我更喜欢在农家吃饭。感觉城市里所以的彩色都很单调。他们的菜肴在照片上看起来不错,但所有这些对我来说味道都一样。我更偏爱农家菜新鲜的烹饪风格。

When this dish is brought on our table, the shrimps are still alive and kicking. It tastes good.

虾子上桌的时候是活蹦乱跳的,看得超级有食欲。

Self-made Frog Meat Fish Head Hotpot 好吃不上火,自制美蛙鱼头火锅

There’s something a little magical when cooking for your loved ones at the weekends. The Frog Meat Fish Head Hotpot is quite popular, and my favorite restaurant is too far way, and there is no place to park my car. Last weekend, I am trying how to make frog head hot pot at home? The main material is Frog and fish head. The frog tastes tender and smooth, with fish soup. The soup is delicious, quite spicy but not dry. High-temperature boiled fish head mixed with the frog, they make each other become more delicious.

苏城最近刮起了一阵美蛙鱼头风,不过老天桥蛙炉火锅真心难停车,资深吃货周末在家琢磨怎么自制美蛙鱼头火锅,有没有人要来拜师学艺?美蛙鱼头火锅的主要材料是花鲢鱼头跟牛蛙,牛蛙入口细嫩爽滑,加上鱼汤,锅底鲜香,辣而不燥。高温火煮后的鱼头去除腥味,味道恰好能与美蛙的鲜味融合在一起,鱼头的鲜味也可以让美蛙变得更加鲜美。蛙肉和鱼肉都属于性味偏凉的食物,真正的好吃不上火。

Warm Up with Chinese Hot Pot 金科大酒店火锅厅

Time is flying by and it feels unreal that I am celebrating the 5th Chinese New Year with Ethan. It is amazing to know that I have get married for about 6 years. I have learned a lot from my husband, and my love to him grows every day. He knows me so well that he could always make me laugh, and comfort me when I was crying in tough times. The most important thing is make me feel beautiful and confident everyday. I feel fully protected by MY husband. And everything will become easier with him.

时间飞逝,今年和Ethan一起度过第五个中国新年。原来我已经结婚6年了,感觉很不真实。我从Ethan那里学到了很多,每天进步一点点。他总能轻易的逗我开心我笑,在我哭得稀里哗啦的时候安慰我。最重要的是每天让我感觉很自信,和他一起,一切都会变得更容易。

This year, we started our Date Night last Wednesday as it is the last day of Spring Festival holiday. Ethan decided to take me somewhere new and try out a new restaurant. And he bought me a new bag as a present for New Year. The bag is beautiful and the date night is romantic.

上周三是春节假期的最后一天, Ethan载我去新的地方尝试新餐厅。惊喜的是,他给我买了一个包包作为新年礼物。包包很漂亮,约会的夜晚也很浪漫。

BEST part is that we didn’t bring our son with us. It is SO NICE to enjoy his full attention. I think that is a good idea to keep this date without my son going! Do any of you do that?? I like to bring my son everywhere I go, but every couple needs some time to breathe.

我们没有带我家小朋友,难得的二人世界。我家小盆友喜欢到哪里都跟着我,我也喜欢天天带着他见识世界的美好。但是我觉得适度的二人世界还是有必要的,每个人都需要自己的时间,做自己喜欢的事情。

If you love someone, you must accept every thing about him, including his favorite food. His favorite food is hotpot. I would be love to share our date night food pictures here.

如果你喜爱一个人,你就会慢慢接受他的每一件事,包括他最喜欢的食物。很久之前我不吃火锅,最爱烤五花肉肉,不过Ethan最爱是火锅,我从只吃清汤锅,番茄锅到爱上麻辣锅。金科辣锅太spicy了,我只敢吃了一两口,Ethan也辣的有点受不了的感觉。我在心中无数次默默的笑他,被辣的不行,又不承认太辣,各种欲罢不能的表情~

熬夜对身体不好不如通宵撸串【烨味央】

天寒地冻去撸串。
烤鸡翅,烤排骨,烤羊肉串,烤鸡胗都是我的大爱。
这家烨味央位于观前街,老板颜值很高,他家的鸡翅跟排骨都有两种味道可供选择,排骨上有脆骨,不过无肉不欢的我还是更喜欢烤全翅啦。

IMG_20170422_170058.jpg

这家最划算的是他家的烤青椒,一样的价格,但是一串有三只青椒。烤青椒加上醋,是我最爱的味道,跟大学时期南京的三牌楼烧烤一条街的味道一模一样。

IMG_20170422_170504.jpg

烤茄子,蒜香味的,一直不能理解为什么烤茄子比肉贵。

IMG_20170422_170051.jpg

烤韭菜,撒上孜然,口水哈。

IMG_20170422_170147.jpg

除了烧烤,他家的招牌还有串串,相较于现在大热的冷锅串串,这家是串串是超级烫,第一口又麻又辣又烫的口味太猝不及防。看那连热气都不冒的辣油,下面居然是滚烫的汤汁。 Continue Reading

浓油赤酱,民国风情 【弄堂里】

苏州的民国风餐厅遍地开花,今天阳光暖暖去Ifmall找了一家安安静静弄堂里聚餐。这家整个装修风格是江浙沪街头的风情,有一些老物什看着还是蛮有情怀的。我们一群聒噪的女汉子吃饭还是比较喜欢安静的餐厅,整个包厢就只听到我们嘻嘻哈哈。包厢的光线略微有点暗,聊八卦的我们有点情报机关特务接头的氛围。

这家的浓油赤酱,加上厚厚的糖,甜得恰到好处,特别契合我的口味。因为价格实惠,性价比高,这家聚餐必点餐厅,下午到的时候全是人人人在排队等座,不过我们是提前预约好的。

弄堂里卤鸡爪是他家的招牌菜,我要为这家的鸡爪疯狂打call,第一口啃最上面的脆骨,酱汁浓郁,让人欲罢不能。甜甜糯糯的鸡爪好吃到爆炸。之前我婆婆在平江路工作的时候,一直带鸡脚旮旯的鸡爪给我吃,这家的酱汁更好吃,蘸酱拌饭的不二选择。 Continue Reading

味至浓时是故乡,每口鱼汤皆是相思。【爽翻天】

Double eleven is the global shopping day to buy at T-mall at big discount, while double twelve is a great chance to find a restaurant that offer half prices. We found a wonderful place to have Sichuan Style Pickled Cabbage and Fish Pot last night.

昨天是双十二,各大餐厅口碑付款有折上五折的活动,昨天趁机去本素酸菜鱼,这家宣传很奇怪,他家海报宣传的是酸菜,而不是鱼,说他家酸菜源自酸菜故里,3000年古法秘制,从青菜生长源头出发,六个月自然成熟,180天传统发酵。菜好,鱼才好?

超能吃的女汉纸聚会,什么都得双份啦,双份酸菜鱼锅底,双份牛肉,三份鸭头,双份口水鸡,双份红糖糍粑,去TMD卡路里,姐姐们不care!!!

bensu1.jpg

鱼的量特别大,鱼片特别薄,味道很新鲜,我们点的微微辣的锅底,鱼片一点都不腥。我最喜欢啃鱼头了,啃完鱼头猛然一抬头,发现锅里的鱼片已经被吃了一半,你们太凶残了。 Continue Reading

Chongqing HOT POT 山城老巴渝火锅:纯金龙头

1.jpg

作为资深火锅控,作为这个月的第五顿火锅,决定来个清淡一点的清汤锅底。店铺装修很有逼格,隐隐的透着一股壕气,店家能用金色打造的各种餐具,绝对不用银色啊,在火锅店正中央有一个黄金龙头在喷水,店家刚刚开业的时候主打999纯金龙头火锅,也就是说锅身的龙头是纯金打造,感觉得是古时候的太上皇级别,才会用黄金龙头锅涮火锅啊。鸳鸯锅的那只纯金龙横卧在锅中央,麻辣锅跟清汤锅的龙头盘旋在周边。 Continue Reading

Popular Spicy Bullfrog + New Video “Dance like A Bullfrog” 拔草网红店铺 + 逗逼舞步:疯狂的牛蛙【视频】

We stopped at the Bullfrog Restaurant “WALAIDA” for a big supper at Longhu Shopping Mall last night. I went to Jinying to have my hair dyed in darker brown color. After sitting there for about 4 hours drinking tea and coffee for a much beautiful hairstyle, I had bullfrog – very tasty. The food and service were excellent.

要问现在苏州最火的美食是什么?必须是牛蛙呀。蛙来哒的牛蛙有12种口味,以迅雷不及掩耳之势席卷了吃货们的朋友圈。这家是《天天向上》汪涵推荐的餐厅,刮风下雨雷打不动的排断腿的网红餐厅之一。作为一名专业吃货,终于拔草成功紫苏口味的牛蛙,大概五点到蛙来哒排队,居然前面已经有六桌在等位,吃货们来势汹汹啊。。

他家的灯光是紫色的,整个餐厅有一股浓郁的酒吧夜店风,可能是因为起源于夜店文化比较多的湖南长沙?披着大红袍的青蛙王子。

餐厅的老板应该有颗逗逼的♥。

苏州牛蛙届扛把子 【老天桥蛙炉火锅】

This is my entry to attend the Daily Food Photography Challenge hold by @howtostartablog. I found it is to good idea to share the photos of what I ate recently, when I have nothing to write about. If you want to join this contest, please add the #dailyfoodphotography as one of the five tags.

拔草苏州网红美蛙鱼头店,之前倩倩去排队三个小时狂刷朋友圈,我的内心是拒绝的,三个小时什么晚饭都吃完了,周五抵不住美食的诱惑,晚上约上 @jessicameng @karasui 一起相约景德路。惊喜的是,我们去的时候居然前面只有一桌要排队,心生疑惑,发现店家的店面从以前的一家扩充到了三家,依旧是那个人声鼎沸啊。

我们三个女汉纸,点了六只牛蛙,一个鱼头做锅底,想想会不会有点多,就听到隔壁桌的一对小情侣模样的,给我来15只牛蛙,我们都震惊了,这家的牛蛙可是比碗大只的呀。 Continue Reading

空心之木 易燃能几何?

还记得夜神月吗?还记得L吗?还记得硫克吗?

《死亡笔记》是我最喜欢的一部动漫,国内好像后来禁播了,不知道为什么?今天我想写一写死亡笔记,里面记着的不是罪犯或什么人的名字,而是大家熟悉的饭馆。

(准备找一张我自己吃货属性的配图,突然翻出了去年苏州聚会的一大帮吃货的照片,甚是怀念,2018年还能否在办一场? 放鸽子的你们 @timknip@jubi @coldhair 是否还会来?)
自从微信朋友圈、点评网的商业化运作,你身边开始有一种奇怪的现象,某一种你从没听说过的餐饮品牌门店,唰一下,开满了各大城市的商业圈,而且永远是排队、排队、排队!这就是时下的网红店。

其实中国人还蛮会“互联网+”的,其实在“大数据”和“云计算”之前,已经出现过这种类似的线下营销模式,比如在五六年前,动不动就有小区和学校门口,开了一家什么牛肉饼店,一块饼要5~10块钱,比一般的烧饼店贵几倍。但是门口永远是排着超级长的队伍,所以你再不喜欢吃,你也要去买一块,因为你好奇,不好吃也不过就10块钱嘛! Continue Reading
