I Love Appetizers

@ mirandablue
I love appetizers--both warm and cold.  Appetizers assuage hunger, and the small servings are designed to be savored, to be lingered on.  When I have time for an appetizer, I relish every morsel.  Loading up on appetizers is also my way of cheating on rice.:p

Before the main course was served, I munched on fried beancurd and jellyfish salad with century egg.  I love this beancurd at Mey Lin Pot and Noddle House---the texture is so fine, I thought they were mushrooms.  And the aroma and flavor of cilantro enhanced the vinaigrette sauce. As always, the contrasting flavors of this chilled, crunchy jellyfish salad and the rich creaminess of century egg are delectable.

Wow, Luna. Amazing food, amazing pictures, amazing descriptions. You are talented in so many ways and have an effective way of sharing them.

ok, so I am not sure what it is, and I am not the one to try new things but is it that black thing on the side of the plate

I would love to try that. I like the seemingly odd combination of bagnet and seaweed, this too might be pleasing for me :)

I love appetizers. So much so that I'd rather have a few appetizer dishes than have a main course. I wonder if that's okay to do in a restaurant. Always wondered if that was fine, because I'd do that.

Can you describe how the jellyfish salad tastes like? Malansa rin ba? :)

Their beancurd is really good nga, even though yung fried beancurd pa lang nakain ko. In your first photo mukha ngang mushrooms. Cool!
