French Toast Rollups

French Toast Rollups

So many things happened lately.  I’ve received a fair bit of bad news and some not so bad.  It’s been overwhelming.  Work has been crazy – really crazy.  So, that explains the slow posting and my absence over the last week.  Whatever happened, I’m crossing my fingers and stay positive.

We shall see … To experience this, we head to Shizuku, the one & only Japanese restaurant in Melbourne that serve ramen burger.  The menu boasts a good variety of modern Japanese snacks Izakaya-style.  One of which that I was attracted to was the modernised Cheesy Nori Snacks – basically it’s a fancy name for baked cheese wrapped in seaweed “nori” sheets and sprinkled with chilli powder.  Overall taste was ok but I wasn’t really game for the texture which has soften in the process of the baking. Cheesy Nori Snacks $8 Shizuku’s interpretation of gyoza comes with four different types of dressing – flavours range from tangy, spicy, sweet …
