There are so many different ways to cook an egg. One of my favorites (and unfortunately not one of the choices when a breakfast place asks how you’d like your eggs cooked) is steamed eggs.

Taste of Thai

A while back, I purchased a groupon for Taste of Thai. Taste of Thai has two locations: Hillcrest and Del Mar. I’ve known about Taste of Thai since I first moved to San Diego. When I was in college, it seemed that the two most popular Thai places were Taste of Thai and Celadon. At the time, the two were located directly across the street from each other in Hillcrest. Celadon has since relocated and revamped its menu and style.

I was a loyal Celadon patron when I was in college, so I never visited Taste of Thai. Lately, when I pass by Hillcrest, I see the signs for the lunch specials, so I have been wanting to check it out for a while. So when the groupon appeared, I purchased one.

Hokkaido milk toast is popular japanese-style bread.  It’s soft, thick, fluffy and addicting. I found a recipe for Hokkadio milk toast in the 65 Degrees Tangzhong book and decided to try it out this weekend.

As you know, I love making bread using the tangzhong method, which you can read a little more about here. It takes a little more effort, but the results are worth it. The bread has such an incredible rise and stays so soft and fresh. This is something I’ve not been able to achieve with other bread recipes and I’ve been testing out a lot of bread recipes.
