I stopped by BreadTop in Melbourne Central on my way home and bought some bread.
A bamboo charcoal roll to try and my usual favourite taro buns.
Bamboo charcoal roll. ($2.00)
A bread roll supposedly made from bamboo charcoal with a garlic butter topping. The bread roll itself did not have any taste to it and all you can taste is the garlic butter. It was basically like garlic bread. It was.. very oily by the time I had gotten it home. The taste was nice (if you like garlic bread. Though, I like the bamboo charcoal bread that I had in Kuala Lumpur more. It had a slight sweetness to it and was plain without toppings.)
The sign on the shelf/windows read "Bamboo Charcoal is produced with 4 years old fully grown bamboo tree. Rich in vitamin C, iron and phosphorus. Ease digestive system, helps discharging impurities and unhealthy substances from stomach."
I did a google search, and found a short video clip on bamboo charcoal. Follow the link to watch. I'm not sure if there's scientific evidence that supports the benefits of bamboo charcoal or not though.. It could all just be a conspiracy?
Taro buns. ($3.90 for 6).
The price of the taro buns has inflated slightly, and they don't taste as good as they used to be either. I still like them, but the taro paste didn't taste as nice and there wasn't much inside the bread bun either.
And for dinner..
Nissin miso ramen with corn, bean shoots and fish tofu. Yum yum! :) I love corn with ramen~ Hehe. And fish tofu! :D
