很久没去光顾极乐拉面了。印象中只去过一次,是在谷中城分店。今天经过佰乐泰广场这一间,看见有午市套餐促销,就心血来潮叫了一碗拉面,顺便酝酿一下我即将去日本的兴奋情绪。

午市套餐~极乐亚洲豚肉饭加一杯绿茶RM18.90++。配料有猪肉碎、红椒、绿椒、黄椒和新鲜玉子,卖相甚佳。

我就坐在它的开放式厨房前面用餐,只见厨房里的当值员工都疑似缅甸籍的外劳。虽然他们身手纯熟,但始终会给顾客‘不够正宗’的感觉吧?记得当年我去谷中城那一间,厨师都是日本人。

(I visited Goku Raku Ramen for the 2nd time. Ordered the Roku Raku Asian Pork Rice set for RM18.90++ which comes with a glass of green tea. Surprisingly, the kitchen staff are all Burmese workers. Shouldn’t they recruit Japanese staff to guarantee an authentic taste of their food? )

下个月要去日本关西,对我来说是件既新鲜又兴奋的事。尤其是京都这座城市,很多年前就非常向往,这次算是提早完成心愿。因为我旅游日本的第一个目的地本是东京,改去京阪神路线是临时决定的。
屈指一算,整整有八天时间在关西,扣掉三天在大阪,两天在奈良时间,逗留在京都的日子也不过三天,要玩转整个京都是不可能的事。但是,光是关西这一带我日后还会去好几次,所以也不急着把全部地方走到完。
搜寻书柜中关于京都的书,发现也有三四本,其中包括舒国治的《门外汉的京都》。
如果说胡慧冲是我旅游曼谷的‘启蒙老师’,那么舒国治便应该是我旅游京都的‘启蒙老师’了。

(I’m getting excited about my Kansai tour next month. After all, it’s my first trip to the Land of the Rising Sun, and Kyoto is one of the cities which I have always wanted to go. As I’m travelling on my own, I would try to get as much information as possible from every possible resource.)

这是东北部的。(A typical Isaan house)

有指示牌一目了然。(The signboards are quite clear, at least with some English written.)

这种房子,恐怕要深入乡下才看的得到了。(Nowadays, you have to travel to the rural areas of Thailand in order to see these kind of houses.)

跟马来人的高脚屋也有点相似。(It has some similarities with our traditional Malay kampong house.)

诵经寮。(A booth for prayer)

很久没有试过一天食两个鸡蛋了。因为年纪大了,所以对胆固醇非常斤斤计较,吃过了1个蛋之后,在同一天里,无论如何都会谢绝另一个蛋,不管接下来送到我面前的那第二个蛋看起来有多么好吃。
但是,今天早上却破例了。因为要等着看早场的《风起了》,所以胡乱在广场里点了套餐,其中包括2个半生熟鸡蛋。

吃过这份早餐,我要隔好几天才再吃蛋。

(It’s been quite a while since I last consumed 2 eggs within one day. Today is an exception. I ordered this breakfast set which comprises 2 half-boiled eggs before going for the ‘The Wind Rises’ morning show. I guess I would have to refrain from eating eggs again for a couple of days from now.)

很多食肆第一次去觉得还不错,第二次去印象却打了折扣,就不想去第三次了。乔迁新址之后的‘东北菜面香村’给我的感觉正是如此。
友人点了韩国泡菜面:面是面,泡菜是泡菜,泡菜是加上去的陪衬品,没什么特色。

我点的炸酱面。炸酱弄得太咸,吃得有点勉强。我突然怀念起上星期五在曼谷永和豆浆餐厅吃的肉碎炸酱面,那真是令人齿颊留香,吃饱了仍禁不住还想再叫一碗啊。

东北菜面香村以后我还会来,但只会点它的镇店之宝~比较特别的招牌豆浆板面。

(I went to the Noodles Village for the second time, but this trip somewhat disappoints me. The Taiwanese ‘zhajiang’ noodles is too salty to my taste. I really missed the yummy ‘zhajiang’ noodles at a Chinese restaurant in Bangkok last week. I guess next time when I come to Noodles Village, I would order the one and only ‘soybean pan mee’ which is their signature dish.)

最近泰国人很流行吃马卡龙饼。这种饼已经从曼谷热卖到清迈去,而且推出的口味越来越多样化。
这是我第一次光顾曼谷的Macaron Ville马卡龙饼专卖店,而且发现这种甜品的价钱并不便宜。像这样包装精美的八粒庄,要卖300铢。其实,一小粒马卡龙饼,一口就吞下去了。

(It seems like the Thais are getting frenzy about eating macarons. The new macaron shops are mushrooming in the city. This is the first time I patroned this shop called Macaron Ville. The beautifully-packaged macarons are sold at 300 baht per box, which is not cheap. The best thing is you can patiently choose your favourite  flavours and there are more than 10 flavours for choice.)
