After I wrote the egg trio post, quite a few friends asked me for the recipe to make the over-easy fried egg.

Besides my husband, I have a brother who is also an egg freak. This is a recipe which he created when he was less than 10 years old. Yes, when my brother was still a kid, he would skillfully cook a perfect over-easy egg for himself as a snack. His recipe is almost always foolproof: the yolk is always runny and the best thing is only little oil is used for frying.



Since I bake from time to time, I always get 3 dozen eggs from Costco when my fridge is out of eggs.


In a pan, put in 1 tsp of oil. Heat the pan until the oil gets very hot.


When the oil is hot, crack in the egg. If you got the temperature of the oil right, then the egg will immediately sizzle. I love listening to the sizzling sound. It’s the best sound to wake up someone special in a weekend morning.


Closely watch the colour of the egg’s rim. Cook the egg until the edge just turns golden brown. As soon as the edge becomes golden brown, cover the pan and turn off the heat. Leave the egg covered for 1 minute. During this time, don’t touch the egg – don’t open the cover, don’t move the pan, don’t do anything!



After one minute, open the pan and using a wooden spoon, gently slide the egg from the pan onto the plate.

Recipes - Doesn't TaZte Like Chicken

After waking up from a good night of sleep on a Sunday morning, and by that I mean not getting out of bed until the clock strikes noon, I helped myself to one, two, or as many as my heart desires, pieces of rich and fudgy brownies. This is necessary because there are eggs in the cocoa powder and tempering prevents the eggs from being cooked and turn into scrambled eggs.

Quick Takes - Doesn't TaZte Like Chicken

Here are some fun facts about the place: it has been at the same location for over 10 years; the chefs and waitresses are Japanese; many professional athletes have eaten and left their marks here. Well, I did say we’ve been eating more than our fair share of sushi in my previous post, didn’t I. The fish was perfectly cooked with rich, tender flakes of black cod just melting in our mouths.

In terms of consistency, the drink was slightly thicker and richer than regular hot chocolate, but it was no match for Chantico, much less cioccolata calda. Curiously, the barista had problems working the salt shaker, which resulted in a rather meagre amount of salt being added to my hot chocolate. A line of products – finally hit the market in September 2008 and is supposed to address some of Chantico’s shortcomings.

Our Teppanyai experience in Vancouver included “Chefs” who cared more about performing stunts than cooking, fume hoods that blew rather than sucked, and clothes that wanted to jump off our bodies to escape the place halfway through dinner. The cars were accompanied by a display of private jets, which were supposed to complement the champagne taste and caviar dreams of the…errr… Mini crowd.

Restaurants - Doesn't TaZte Like Chicken

Japanese hotels do very nice breakfast buffets, with Japanese selections consisting of rice, various types of fish and meats, pickled salads, miso soup, etc. plus continental standbys such as fruits, dairy products, cereals, salads, etc. The most interesting thing were the collection of Sapporo beer bottles through the ages, as well as the series of posters used to market the products from the 1800s to present day.
