They provide a huge selection of cakes that you can choose from, with my personal favourite being the dark chocolate cake which is made up of 70 percent chocolate. My friend’s favourite was the apple crumble, to which he exclaimed that the sweetness was just right, to which I beg to differ by a little.

They also do catering services and delivery services, so if you are planning on a small party, you can look up their details here. Mannings’ Bakery

Their pao menu is also great to try out, which is slightly different drom the normal paos you would have in a Chinese restaurant.

These pao are deignated to hold fillings of one’s choice between them, which is suitable for the restaurant, as they provides a large selection of fillings that you could choose from. We opted for the today’s special that was recommended by the staff, which was pulled pork, which turned out to be more than a pleasant surprise. We were so hungry that we gobbled them down with an extra order of those, to which you could say that their pao series are a huge success.

Chocolate is the new cheese, for sandwiches

Meet Nutella’s latest competitor, chocolate slices. It has never been as easy as shown in these pictures that you could put chocolate on bread without getting into a huge mess without the invention of Nutella. These chocolate slices were released by the Japanese company Bourbon.

These chocolate slices are made from the Nama Chocolate, a type of confectionary in Japan which is said to be rich and creamy, but not sweet as fudge, yet more intense in flavour than milk chocolate.

There is also a huge variety of ways you can use these for, such as melting and putting them on crepes or pancakes, cutting them into different shapes using cookie cutters, also making chocolate roses from them.

Thrifty, thrifty, thrifty

Writing about a food blog means that you can go in different directions to write about, such as writing reviews about restaurants, posting blog posts about other pages, writing about one’s cookings etc. The blog posts that I have entered have been focusing on restaurants and other news about food, with none talking about my own culinary skills.

The main reason why this situation happened is due to my inability to measure the actual servings and quantities of ingredients needed, resulting in the case of cooking too much food. I still have two housemates who mange to chomp down every single bit though, often to the point they are stuffed to the brim.

This post would be about a small gallery of a bit of cookings that I have done here, so the food might not look that delectable as  I didn’t really put in much effort to decorate them to look picturesque.

The Harbourmaster!

During October, my friend Kenny had his birthday and we decided to celebrate his birthday with a meal. Coincidentally at that time the Harbourmaster was having a sales for 12 euro per person on Groupon, so we went for that one, to which we were quite happy with the results.
