Daikon Raddish Soup a.k.a蘿蔔湯

Standard

Some people said love is always found in the least expected place. ( Or car keys, glasses, unbrellas.) But I am NOT going to comment to this uncomfirmed idiom. Instead, I did found a least romantic ingredient, making it into the most down to earth valentine’s special treat. How? This ingredient is basically a kind of root, how down to earth is that huh?

Just in case you are wondering. Today I’m making a traditional Taiwanese Daikon Raddish Soup. It is well known as the least romantic soup in Taiwan you can find in every noodle stand on the street. The way we Taiwanese present it, is normally fill up in a big plastic bowl, with a big handful of cilantro. Totally echo-unfriendly, totally not a first-date-choice of food. When you order Daikon soup from the street, you normally eat it with a bunch of scooters and honks at the back ground.

Funny thing is today I was just joking around with my friend about how un-romantic Taiwanese people are. But hey I found the solution! It is so lovable and juicy the second you bite into it. Romantic boys and girls, take your lover to the most romantic Daikon soup ever for special occasions! Ladies and gentlemen, I give you…..The lover boy Daikon Raddish Soup!!

有句俗話說,愛情總是在最意想不到的時候發生,為了向這謎一樣的句子致敬,本人今日閒來無事,把街頭小巷麵攤老相好之菜頭湯稍微改頭換面,這新推出的湯品真是樸拙可愛,花了我大把功夫把菜頭削成了愛心狀,用心調味燉煮直到菜頭吸飽了湯汁,一咬就噴汁。呈獻方式依然以經典的吃爽但吃不飽的高級餐飲路線,我覺得這道新作品十分適合時下最火紅的宅男宅女,樸拙的外表下透露著我愛你愛到爆漿的熱情。這道菜的最佳食用方式最好是你餵我我餵你一口給它吃下去,心切開了觸霉頭嘛,哦不過要切開也是可以硬轉成我為了你打開心房之類的呦,你們看!一口大小的分量不只是用來假掰而以!各位鄉親父老,請掌聲鼓勵—全世界最浪漫的………菜!頭!湯!

by the way, after this project I realize one thing,  food suppose to look delicious. But when food looks too pretty, I end up losing my appetite. Guess I’m just a bit old fashion.

後記,大概是我比叫老土,或是天生命太窮酸,我覺得食物就是要色香味俱全,看起來美味的食物不一定總是漂亮,但人腦神經是會牽動味覺得反應,精緻餐廳的料理也不是沒吃過,但每當呈現食物的方式美得太超過,有時反而喪失了想吃的慾望了….
