Culinary Ambitions

Yesterday, it dawned on me that I wanna learn how to cook. For real. But since I don’t have the moolah to send myself to a culinary school (heck, I don’t even have the moolah yet to take MA Communication, boohoo!), I’ll transition to this slowly (and inexpensively).

Funny ’cause the other day I was looking for “how to lose weight” stuff online, I got so far that I even came close to “learn more colon cleansers” articles and shiz. Almost everyone I know is attempting to diet and I am not ready to join the bandwagon yet. Lazy to exercise is lazy.

So for starters, I’d like to know where to buy yummy Japanese mayonnaise ’cause I really like Teriyaki Boy’s Kani Salad. This looks fairly easy to prepare, but I have to find mayo that good.

And I also wonder what kind of sauce is put on dishes like teppanyaki. Need this for baon!

I like their Yakimeshi Rice because it tastes so “stir-fried”. LOL. I lived with that all throughout college life.

If you have any ideas what these are and where can I buy the ingredients/condiments at reasonable prices, let me know!

      Basta hindi kasi maalat yung sauce, so hindi siya soy sauce. Minsan dun tayo magchikahan hehe. Thank you other! ♥

    There’s a tiny portion of Jap products in most groceries. A bit pricey but def worth it. What we only buy here is Jap flour (for tempura) becuase most of our condiments are brought by my aunt from Japan, and I have no idea what they’re called. Hehe.

    Not sure about the teppanyaki sauce pero usually, mixture of light soy sauce and mirin/sake lang yung ginagawa namin (same with cooking teriyaki and tempura dip), add ginger and sugar. =)
