Week 3, day 1 in Austin, I finally cracked.
I broke down and bought my first Asian meal.
菜飯 (cai fan, or economical rice in Singapore) has never tasted better.
This plate costs $8.50, which is bloody expensive by Singapore’s standards, but it was my best food expenditure so far on this trip lol.
There is only so much BBQ, tacos and tortilla chips I can take. I NEED MY COMFORT FOOD.
When I left Singapore for Japan, the only thing I miss about Singapore (apart from family and friends la, obviously) is the food.
When I told Fu I miss gyu-don (bowl of rice and beef), he went, “Seriously?! You miss gyu-don?!!”
But his reaction is not surprising, considering the fact I started eating beef for the first time in my life just less than a year ago. I used to find beef too “smelly” for my tastes, and gyu-don was the one that changed my opinion forevermore.
But sigh! No gyu-don for the next 2.5 months :C
Know what? I think I’ll go do a post on gyudon awesomeness. Cannot eat but at least can talk about it, look at it, dream about it…
edit: gyudon post is up! :D
