SiTigun

  SiTigun is a place where you don’t find any stress from the surrounding, and you can have a cup of coffee with a peace of mind. Found this place by accident when I read an article few years ago, then after a word of mouth from friends and family that recommended us to try out their coffee. I would have to say that if you’re those coffee lover and wanted something real strong, I guess this is not the place.       Any coffee lover, those typical one would prefer a dark roast coffee bean and it has its strong aroma when you brew. SiTigun is more of a place like for back packer that they can rest for awhile and sip a cup of coffee and a bite on a slice of bread. Well, I was here not to comment how great or how bad their coffee, but, just thought of sharing another place if you’re yearning for an American breakfast.

Home Cooked Honey Pork Belly

I came across this post while I was googling on other matters, and find it rather easy to cook and it’s originated from a Japanese. Without second thought and much hesitation, I told myself, got to try it out. Even though I can cook, I find myself not a confident cook like others. Some how just lack of that in me… perhaps I am so afraid of failure. I know many chefs have gone thru many failures before they are successful. But, to me, though I know that’s the path that you ought to go thru, but I find it really a waste when the entire food just not eatable anymore. I always like how the chef cut their meat, or the way they cut anything … for example this meat, I am not able to cut per what it said in the post. Thurs, my piece of pork belly looks a bit in odd shape. And also the food presentation, the way they presented their food on a plate or a bowl. It looks like an art to me, in fact, it’s a piece of valuable art. Ingredients 350g pork belly Oil Blanched spinach
