On Saturday last weekend we grabbed a bite to eat while at the shops. Jac enjoyed a plate of chicken nachos from Xquisito. The warmed corn chips, spicy chicken chilli mix and melted cheese were topped with cold tomato salsa, guacamole and sour cream. I wasn’t sure I liked all the cold condiments piled on top of the hot cheese and corn chips, but the nachos were actually really tasty. You can’t really see the chicken chilli mix as it’s buried under the cheese, but it was delicious, with chunks of chicken. It was really really tasty – I’ll have to have a plate of nachos all to myself sometime in the future.
I only had a couple of mouthfuls of the nachos – my meal was laksa from Sun Sun. The soup was more coconut milky than curry – it really was rich with coconut milk, very lemak, as they say – and absolutely chockers with rice noodles and egg noodles, bean sprouts, chicken and barbecue pork, topped with a couple of bursty prawns and chopped spring onions. Despite my most valiant effort, I wasn’t able to finish the entire bowl of laksa – I took the rest home to eat later, of course. It was pretty good, but I think the laksa from my uni days remains my favourite.
Jac’s mum and her friend came over for afternoon tea. I’d liked to have baked something but ran out of time, so we got a cake from Woolworth’s. This cake looked delicious – two tiers of sponge, with custard in between and a layer of chocolate on top. According to the label on the box, this was a Boston cake, presumably also known as a Boston cream pie.
Looks good, eh? Unfortunately, I thought the custard was a little bland. Jac’s Mum rather liked the cake though, and had two helpings.
