Beside Nasi Lemak and Chinese dishes, another cuisine I cooked the most is Japanese dishes because my family members are also Japanese food lover..I cooked this Japanese Salted Salmon Croquette (mashed potato and other ingredients roll in breadcrumbs and fried) few months back, after I learnt how to prepare Japanese salted salmon..And also check below for many Japanese dishes that I have been prepared at home..
*after this post, I will be away again, this time I bring my mother to fullfill her dream to see Autumn leaves in Japan..I have prepared few scheduled posts about the Italy trip, feel free to check later ya..See you soon and take good care..
Nobody could resist this type of deep fried simple roll

Learnt a quick way of preparing Ramen's soup base from Nami aka Just One Cookbook. Nami's way is to use ground meat instead of thick stock which using bone and spend hour/days to prepare. And we prefer this light miso soup base than the thick and creamy soup base..
I couldn't easily buy fresh ramen at my place, for time being, i found 全蛋麵 (noodles made with 100% of egg) or similar to Wanton noodles best alternative.And remember not to blanch the noodles for too long, less than 1min just nice.
