Smallwares And Lamb Java



Those of you who know me, know that I am a foodie. That's right, I love the look, taste and smell of food and I love trying foods of different cultures. I have been asked often which is my favorite cuisine, but that's almost impossible to say. However, Asian food has a special place in my heart. When I refer to Asian food, I am primarily referring to Thai, Chinese, Japanese, Korean and Indonesian. The spices are always unique and they each have dishes that they make their own.

For an appetizer, we tried the Welsh Rarebit, a warm cheese dip made of English cheddar, Stilton, and Smithwick's Ale. The tang of the blue cheese and the sharpness of the cheddar made for an incredible combination. Your favorite cheese dip will never taste the same after you try this dish. And forget ever wanting nachos with that fake cheese again. Ruined.

Finally, the town of Banff. It's nestled in the mountains and exudes charm. It is a little touristy, but there is enough shopping and dining to keep the traveler busy for at least a day. We enjoyed our meal at St. James Gate Irish Pub. Bison Boxty and crockpot lamb shanks was tasty and filling. What is boxty? A thick and hearty potato pancake. The pub exudes charm! Our home for tonight is Wit's End, a B & B across the river, but still in town. Our room is very pleasant, comfortable and roomy, with a garden view. Our hosts, Barbara and Vic, are friendly, knowledgeable, and laid back. We recommend it for comfort, hospitality, and information.

Lamb- Nothing like lamb curry, which is out-of-sight, but lamb smeared with a little hot sauce is just the ticket when you need add a little stride to your step.

What you get - Run by a true blue Malaysian, this restaurant offers you authentic Malaysian food and the owner is not high-nosed either. You will find him serving at some table or the other. The staff offers you a wet towel as soon as you are seated and that can be a refreshing thing to use. But once they hand over the leather bound menu, it is sure to read like Greek and Latin to most. So, like we did, you could take help from the captain or the person taking your orders.

While I have been experimenting and perfecting my vegetable curried lambs, the only one that has been enjoying them was me. That is, until very recently and now I have slowly gaining converts. About a month ago, my parents decided to go on a diet and my dad needed some new slim-down recipes. I gave him my Cauliflower curried lamb and he's been cooking up big batches of the stuff ever since. My good friend needed a flavorful dish for a professional potluck that would be okay for a variety of diet restrictions. I gave him my Cauliflower curried lamb and he said it was a smash success.

Domaine de Piaugier Sablet Cotes-du-Rhone Villages 2008: Although a bit less intense than the amazing 2007 predecessor, the Sablet continues to be terrific. The spicy red berry aroma is followed by dark fruit, coffee and light tannins on the palate. The finish is slightly smoky. This. Is. simple lamb curry. Short. Ribs. $15.

But please crosscheck the bill, as the names appear similar to first-timers. They billed us for a non-vegetarian dish though we had ordered for a vegetarian one. You will find a lot of Malaysians frequent this restaurant so the food must definitely taste like home-food for them. And valet parking is available. This restaurant is worth going back to anytime.
