ABC Wednesday | Kani

The very first time I had a taste of Kani was when Mama Cion (Dad's Aunt) hosted a party and served a salad buffet which include some Kani Sticks. I did love its taste, but sort of stopped eating it when someone told me it's not real crabs but just imitation, giving more negative emphasis on the term "imitation."

Last Saturday, my sister and I went to the supermarket to buy some food for our own diet projects. She took on a fruit cleansing diet, while I went for a week of salads. I know I'd repeat eating lettuce, carrots, cucumbers, and tomatoes, so I have to make sure I add something different to each of the salad serving so I won't get tired eating it. Seeing this 145g pack of Kani and found out that it was actually made from fish (I thought all along it was made from flour), I decided to buy it.

So far, I have used it as my way of sprucing up the salad, to give it a different flavor. I do love it, so for sure I'll be eating more of it next time.

These I saw at Mercato Centrale sometime ago. Bacon Wrapped Kani... why not? I might cook this next week, because I decided not to eat any land animal meat this week. I am sure this will be delish, because bacon just taste so freakin' good!

Jenn, the Foodie

I come from a family who loves cooking and eating. I never had any formal training in cooking and that I taught myself how to cook based on the handed down recipes, but I could say that I can cook good food. In 2008, I started documenting my food trips for my travel blog, and since I have quite enough to start a food blog, might as well put all those food trips in one location. Thus, a food blog is born - thanks to the new Friendster Blogs. However, due to several problems, I was left with no choice but to pack bags again and move here instead. Here's the permanent address, promise! Enough talk, let the food trippin' begin! {Know More About Me}
