Anyhow if you have kuih sapit molds on hand and wanted to try making it yourself. Don't say I didn't warn you. I got a recipe here that was tested and turned out good. I have another posting here on the kuih sapit baking tips.

|Spicy Tokyo style ramen|
So when my friend arrived we decided to walk to Misoya instead which was just on the other side of Homestead Road. Different from Orenchi, there was no line at all at Misoya. We pretty much walked in and got seating at the bar.

|tom yum noodle @ Pa Ord Noodle|
So to get our craves of Thai food completely taken care of, I decided to swing by Thai Town once more. We couldn't go back to Hoy Ka Noodle because they open at 11. So Pa Ord Noodle was our choice since they open at 9:30.

From the menu, we picked samosas for appetizer, garlic noodle with prawns, khao poon (Laos style noodle soup) and pork belly with buns. We were given free appetizer as well. It was served on a cute long platter with three compartments. One for fried peanuts, one for chinese sausage and the last one was deep fried wonton skin. It's quite an interesting combination.

So we brazed ourselves and were out on the street of Rosemead around 10 something in the morning. When we got there, there was a long table filled with adults and kids. We sat down and placed our order. Two bowls of chicken pho (pho ga) and a plate of beef roll. Both were highly recommended by Yelpers.

Thanks to Lindsay for her recipe. I swapped the all purpose flour with Bob's Red Mill Gluten Free 1to1 Baking Flour to make it gluten free. The result was good and I love it. I made this three times already for gift.
Yield : 1 loaf (10-12 servings)
1 1/4 cups Bob's Red Mill Gluten Free 1to1 Baking Flour
1/2 cup dark or Dutch-processed cocoa powder, sifted
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
2 large ripe bananas, mashed
2 large eggs
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1/2 cup packed light brown sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/2 cup (1 stick) unsalted butter, melted and slightly cooled
1/2 cup chocolate chips
2 tablespoons cacao nibs, for topping (optional)

|Grilled pork salad - to die for|
The restaurant had high unfinished ceiling and concrete floor that gave the industrial feel to it. But it gave the airy, cozy feeling. I gave this place 5 star for the ambience. And surprisingly for that ambience, the price wasn't too bad.

|Lo noodle with chicken|
The menu had some pictures on but not enough to give you ideas on what some of the items looked like. I found the menu confusing. They tried to provide different option for same noodle dish but wasn't very clear about it. I ordered the chaozhou noodle soup with pork belly. Hubby ordered the lo noodle with soup on the side.
