I just love the variety of and the differences between cafeteria food you get in different countries. Wasn't really a fan of the yellow Kohlrabi sauce, but hey, it could have been worse . . .
|mensa = student cafeteria|
We did make something that wasn't cafeteria food, though: takoyaki! (savory, round octopus pancakes) Here's some pretty photos, a la PaRappa:
|"M-I-X the flour (+egg, water, pickled ginger, and green onions) into the bowl! "|
|"Heat up the hot plate, now we're on a roll!"|
|"We're making us a (pan)cake that you've never seen before!"|
|"All we gotta do is apply the final touches."|
I think we made about 68 in total. Yup. That was definitely enough for us.
Ey, but wasn't the food in my mensa quite eatable? :)ReplyDelete
Nice, you managed to document every step! It's been so delicious. Looking at makes me want to eat them again!ReplyDelete
R: It was! A lot of the mensas serve quite good food, it's true!ReplyDelete
G: Now that we're takoyaki experts, we'll have to do it again soon! :)
Indeed! I'm always up for it!ReplyDelete
Is that... a poffertjes pan? O_O Saw one recently, we always had the skillet-type at home but I've only seen the electric ones here... ooohh... another excuse to actually get it, damn you! *shakes fist*ReplyDelete
The mensa comic is so recognisable, I tend to analyse food only when it's not great. :D And then... yeah, downgrade (or upgrade?) it to 'fuel'. it does the job.
I had to google poffertjes....I've never had it, but IT LOOKS DELICIOUS! It's actually a takoyaki hotplate, but I bet I could use it for poffertjes and all other spherical-pancake-things. There's an idea! Are poffertjes spherical though? The photos make them look slightly flatter...I should go look for a recipe!ReplyDelete
Meh, late reply. Poffertjes are puffy and flat, not spherical, so maybe I was mistaken about the pan. :) Making the batter from scratch requires too much (energy and money), I always get a ready mix... which of course doesn't exist here. >_> Try finding them at a fair maybe?ReplyDelete
