How to make the best ramen

You need your ramen, an egg, some spring onion and one or two slices of processed cheese.

Boil the ramen accordingly with the spices a dash of vinegar. Add the spring onion and the egg when it's only 1 min left.

Before you serve it, put the cheese on top and let it melt. Yum!

I sometimes add some chicken, bacon, lettuce, spinach, pak choi, mushroom etc to it. Today I had dried squid with chili paste. The trick is to add stuff you really like and just use this as a base. Enjoy!


focaccu not

Yes, I couldn't come up with anything better. Today I did something that I absolutely loathe - I baked. I made pizza dough and the rest of the pizza and my trustworthy focaccia. I got this recipe from a friend who spent most his time in Italy so I trust him. I've eaten this bread so many times I got fed up with it. I also altered the recipe a bit since I thought it was tastier - something that I suggest everyone should do - just remix.

1 pack of yeast about 50gram
6 dl water (finger temperature)
olive oil 2-3 tbs
2 tsp salt
16 dl flower (the nicer the better)
sea salt
olive oil

mix the yeast and water together with salt (I always add some sugar to wake up the yeast), olive oil and add the flower. Mix until a solid dough and then I always go nuts with the dough and try to work with it as long as my patient allows me. Let it sit for an hour and then put on a baking sheet and let it rest for another half hour. Mix olive oil, garlic and rosemary so the oil becomes flavorful. add on the dough and press down your fingers in the dough so it creates small pockets filled with oil. In the oven for 15-20 min 175F.

I always serve with hummus, tapenade and today I had some mozzarella on top and baked in the oven for 10 extra minutes. Pretty nice.

I finished it with a friend before I had the chance to take a picture. However this small piece managed to stay alive. I have one batch in the freezer but it doesn't look very appetizing. 



Don't miss this movie. Pretty great. The passion. Outstanding.

And today I visited two of Gothenburg's food trucks. It was good. If you can't wait and can read Swedish, check out danish robot dancers. Otherwise it will be up here soon.
Take care.
And eat good food.


Mikado - more than just sushi

I've seen this place on my way to work and always wanted to try it. Now, I've been there twice and it's growing on me. I'm very picky when it comes to sushi, but I'm not such a pretentious asshole that I can't enjoy a fairly okay sushi plate. The first time I was there I had a pepsi. Not worth mentioning. The second time I was there I had the gyoza with a side of spring rolls and noodles. Yum! The gyoza had an undefined taste of some kind of herb which was not unpleasant nor pleasant. Today I tried the sushi and my friend had the salmon. With a side of spring rolls and noddles, of course! That's the beauty of this place. You get spring rolls and noddles when you order from the lunch menu (till 3pm). 

my imaginary friend and I
Spring rolls!!!
I loved the maki rolls because it was just traditional salmon-cucumber-picked radish. Simple, classy and yummy. Yes, there was one "california roll", but it was forgettable. The fish was soft but I missed some wasabi in between the fish and the rice, but I can add that. The service is friendly and fast. They go the extra mile. The second time I was there I wanted gyoza but it wasn't included on the lunch menu but they said it was fine and they made it happen. I love those little things. 

The restaurant is located on Sten Sturegatan 42. They also have vegetarian sushi which my veggie friend loves. So big thumbs up!

Dubbel Dubbel - Dim sum and dumplings

The restaurant is located on Kastellgatan 14 and google maps led us confusingly to the place. We arrived and got seated to our reserved table but the waiter didn't take our drink order until a bit later. Not a very good start. The menu was also our table mat which is practical and surely environmentally friendly. Our friends arrived and we ordered some food. I took the shrimp wonton (4 but I got 8!), pork jiaozi (3) and the ribs. My company ordered mantao tempeh, mantao duck, beef jiazi, kristaljiazi and sichuan tilapia. We enjoyed the food enormously and the restaurant was dressed in wood, very cozy. The only thing was that  had a feeling of pretentiousness that I couldn't shake. It could be because on the menu it said that they asked their customers for leniency because they are a small establishment where the chose free intimacy and the small scale is better than a larger scale. And not to hesitate to get up and order from the bar. In my ears that is an excuse to shitty service. The service was okay, however not noticeable.

I might want to come back to try some of the set menus, but the restaurant left remarkable impression. It was okay, that's all I can say. I'm always up for trying Asian food since I think that Sweden lack authentic Asian food and this was one of the better places.



I had this wine the other day at Berzelius and it blew my mind. I'm not a wine-type-of-gal. I'm huge fan of beer. I love me some IPA. However, then night had a feeling of white wine so I had a glass, then another. The pinot blanc was very fruity, dry, fresh, easy going and friendly. I can't find it at Systembolaget, but I'm going there and buying the Riesling and asking if they can order it for me. If you can find it, cheers!
