What To Eat For Lunch Today?

Posted by : foongpc | Monday, October 25, 2010 | Published in


Do you always ask yourself this question "What to eat for lunch today?"

I do.

I am not sure if that question is grammatically correct but that's how I always ask this question to myself. And it's not just lunch, mind you. It's the same with dinner.

Always, the same question will pop up again and again with no apparent answers. What to eat? What to eat?

Well, I have no problem with what to eat for breakfast as most of you would already know by now, I eat only fruits, fruits and more fruits for breakfast!

Cream chicken @ Pan Cafe

But when it comes to lunch and dinner, I will always face this problem of not knowing what to eat. Sometimes, I get so fed up with the food in coffee-shops and restaurants I feel like cooking my own food.

Maybe I should learn how to cook but then again, if I do know how, another problem will arise. I may start to ask myself "what to cook?" instead, which I think is ten times worse than "what to eat"!

Egg tarts @ Canton-i

In fact, I am sometimes so bored with outside food I rather cook myself instant noodles. I know it's unhealthy but I guess once in a while is OK! By the way, my favourite instant noodles is the Cintan brand and my favourite flavour is Asam Laksa. How about you?

My Cintan asam laksa noodles

So here I go again. What to eat for lunch today?

Popiah rolls?

Mee rebus?

I feel like eating Pasta Zanmai's Unagi kabayaki to onsen tamago

Or Tang House Of Fishball's celery mee

I guess Bao Bao's pan mee with dumplings are quite nice too.

Or maybe I just keep it simple and eat Bread Story's Panda bread. Haha!

Oh well, I guess I will never ever find a solution to this. I will always be asking this question every single day - What to eat for lunch today?

Note#1 : All pictures in this post were taken using my iPhone 3Gs and not my Panasonic LX3. So please excuse me if some of the food shown were not exactly appetizing.

Note#2: I highly recommend that cream chicken rice from Pan Cafe (1st photo) and the unagi kabayaki from Pasta Zanmai. The others are not too bad either, although in the case of Canton-i's egg tarts, I think Tong Kee's ones are better.

    Then why don't you just cook your own meals bro? :p

    Hahaha :DYeah! That happened to me. Then I will ask what to cook? Or I will ask my family...what you guys wanna have for dinner etc.

  13. Tekkaus said...

    But sometimes you can't deny that eating instant noodle is far more delicious and appetizing right? :p

    Tell me about it... if you are alone for lunch. Its much more easier. The tougher time to decide what do WE want to have for lunch.

    I have experienced that my colleagues and I... we were standing there for 30 mins just to decide for where to go for lunch...

  23. foongpc said...

    tekkaus, eat the same thing everyday for lunch? What's that? Don't you ever feel bored?

    Is there Pasta Zanmai outlet in Melaka?

    October 25, 2010 at 12:59 PM
  24. foongpc said...

    fufu, the cream chicken is yummy! Yeah, I guess we are too busy in the day time so normally simply eat lunch while dinner is more proper : )

    October 25, 2010 at 1:00 PM
  25. foongpc said...

    reanaclaire, haha! You ask everyone? Oats for breakfast is good! : )

    October 25, 2010 at 1:01 PM
  26. foongpc said...

    TZ, standing for 30 mins to decide what to eat? Yes, I've done that too but it's such a waste of time! Haha!

    October 25, 2010 at 1:01 PM
  27. foongpc said...

    lina, it's afternoon now, have you eaten your lunch? : )

    October 25, 2010 at 1:02 PM
  28. foongpc said...

    wenn, used to? So now you don't ask yourself anymore? What's your solution?

    October 25, 2010 at 1:02 PM
  29. foongpc said...

    eric lee, what is Pama? Never eaten that brand of instant noodles before! Btw, I seldom eat instant noodles, haha!

    So dinner menu is already decided for you by your mom? Hahaha!!

  30. HappySurfer said...

    There's a lot of choices, wor.

    So, you're not one to eat breakfast like a king, lunch like a prince and dinner like a pauper? I thought you have your home-cooked dinner by your mom? No?

    Haven't tried that Cintan Asam Laksa. May want to give it a try now. My favs are the Pama koay teow, the Mamee vegetarian mee and the occasional Maggi chicken-flavored mee. Yes, everything in moderation.

    Sigh...I frequently ask myself this question. Right where I work, there's no decent place to eat. Either I bring last night's dinner for lunch or have to drive all the way out from office...rush through lunch to get back to office in time.

    Really the served items were looking too delicious. The items were typically Thai food and the soup-noodle was looking fantastic.
