Toast with figs and walnut © Evelyn Howard 2011

Changing direction slightly… here’s a yummy breakfast I had the other day. Delicious yet simple to make – fresh figs, walnuts and mascarpone cheese on top of toasted chunky bread, drizzled with honey.

Dinner one night was pulled pork in a roll, with coleslaw on the side. It was very enjoyable but strongly flavoured. All my taste buds were stimulated!

Bought the pull pork roll from this shop – I love the  funky decor.

Vietnamese coffee © Evelyn Howard 2011

Lastly, have you tried Vietnamese coffee?

In the above photo, a metal container sits on top of a sieve, which are both placed on top of a glass on the left. Grounded coffee is placed in the metal container, and hot water is poured over the top. The coffee slowly drips into the glass which has sweetened condensed milk.  When all the coffee has dripped into the glass, give it a stir, and it’s ready. It’s different from the usual regular coffee or lattes, but extremely delicious.

Hope you are all having a nice week.

Wow, that breakfast looks delicious!!! :)
Nice shop too, is Nut House the name of the place or the sign is just for decoration?

Evelyn said...

Thanks Lucia,
I just noticed the sign in the photo. No, the place is called Hyde Away Blues BBQ - quite a cool name I think.

I won't be able to get that photo of the fig, walnut, cheese breakfast out of my head until I can satisfy the craving it has induced in me. I'm DOOMED!

The figs look absolutely delectable. Yummy!


Water in a drop of rain,
Water swirling down the drain;
Water clinging to the trees,
Water filling up the seas;
Water frozen, water free,
Water is the stuff for me!

Your breakfast made my mouth water - I love figs and cheese. I often gain weight during my trip. How about you?


EG Wow said...

Wow, Evelyn! You sure do travel! Nice photos of San Francisco. :)

Evelyn said...

Thanks everyone :)

Thanks. I don't think I've put on weight this trip. Maybe because the food is not so dissimilar to what we get in Australia.

Haha, I gained weight when I was in Japan though, because my husband and I just love Japanese food. We had big meals everyday, determined to experience all there was to offer! No regrets though. I enjoyed each and every meal.
