A famous singer – Claude François – used to sing “Le lundi au soleil, c’est une chose qu’on aura jamais…” which translated, means Sunny Mondays is the one thing that you’ll never get. Monday – let’s face it – has to be the worst day of the week day. That being said, I’m easy to cheer-up. Just give me a chocolate truffle or best… a good food deal and you’ll turn any dull day into a sunshiny one!
One reason to love mondays is Kujin’s Tapas deals. Of course, I can hear purists scream that tapas certainly aren’t Japanese but… what’s in a name? That which we call a rose…
Every “Japanese Tapas” is at AUD 5 and that’s a great deal. I loved the Chicken Karaage, crunchy, moist and packed of flavour… Could have eaten a truckload more of these beauties.
Ever since I saw and ate Concetta’s Croqs as featured in Recipe to Riches (and got all the boxes I could get from my local Woolies) I’ve had this obsession with croquettes. If there are croquettes on the menu, I know I’ll have to order these! The croquettes were crispy on the outside and had soft innards… so soft that I actually had to use a spoon to eat the croquette.
The seaweed salad is as usual, one of our must-haves. I recall Monsieur found this quite odd at first, but he somehow got used to it, for he would order this every time now!
The Pork Gyoza were great, I loved their crispy bottom and their juicy innards. Just the way good gyoza should be
The Spring rolls were sort of fusion spring rolls with cheese, chicken breast and pesto. I could read Monsieur’s disappointment on his face: “But these are cooked?”
“By the looks my sweetheart… Yes”
“But what are the ones that aren’t cooked?”
“Rice paper rolls you mean?”
“arrr. I knew you should have done the ordering from A to Z.”
That being said, Monsieur absolutely loved the spring rolls. I wasn’t so smitten by these, and ended up giving half of my spring roll to Monsieur.
The bill came down to only AUD 34 for 2 as I drank one umeshu (AUD 6) and Monsieur had a beer (AUD 5). Great deal
