Petaling Street pt.7


Chestnuts roasting on an open fire... Well, not so much an open fire as it is heated coal. The only open fire we Malaysians have right now is the one causing the horrible haze that blows in from Sumatera. I digress. Roasted chestnuts. There's nothing quite like 'em on a cold night. So, this one goes out to all of you who are grooving into winter. As for us here in the heated country, we wait for the chestnuts to cool.

I'll be taking you out of the main thoroughfare for the last few shots of this series. Till tomorrow.

I love those (I remember it as "Tenshin-Ama-Guri" as commonly found in Japan). Sadly, I never seen it in NZ.

I agree with Annie, roasted Chesnuts recalls the atmosphere of Xmas, winter, and Charles Dickens novels...

Somehow I don't think Pod was talking "chest" nuts....crotch nuts perhaps? I didn't really say that! ;-)

Perhaps I am wierd...but I tried roasted chestnuts for the first time just last month and I found them to taste oddly like roast beef. Is that what they taste like to everyone else? I confess...I chucked it in the bin. I love roast beef...but not in a nut. :)

2 visits Ame? You must miss me as much as I miss you ;)

Yes Poddy, keep those nuts warm.

I'll try and deliver some to you both, Rudy and Kris. i wonder if DHL does hot boxes?

Yup, Christmas is just round the corner...again! Annie and Alex, sorted out your holiday plans?

The Wellspring...beef? You sure? that's really odd.

Loved them! I like the colour of the chestnuts against the dark coffee beans!

Yum yum! One of those things I remember Petaling St of. The water bottle placed above the wok looks like some mechanical contraption to pour water into the wok!

It makes me think of my time in England when as a child you would tie them to string and have battles with your best friend... trying to break their 'conker' before yours breaks! Fun as!

Mmm, I can smell them. Had them always in Istanbul, then Paris. I wish we had them on street corners here in E.L. Tried cooking them myself once and burned them, after gathering such nice ones by the Grand Palais. Smelled up the whole apartment.

I like those, as you say on a cold winter night. I get fed up quickly when I eat some but being next to the fire staring at the chestnuts is soothing and rewarding.-)
