Sweet Sour Salt – Modern Asian Restaurant

header2012m57smallSweet Sour Salt - Modern Asian Restaurant in Orange NSW a1

In my last dining post, I presented an unlikely dessert place in a pub. Today, I’d like to talk about a contemporary Asian restaurant called Sweet Sour Salt here in Orange which I can foresee to be my favourite place for Asian food. We had a delicious dinner from there once, and until this day I am still craving the lychee crème brulee`. The sweetness was perfectly balanced with a flowery hint of lychee. In addition, there was a nice surprise of an actual lychee when you scooped the bottom of the dessert. Sadly, I did not take a photo of this dessert at the time. So you just have to take my word for it. *wink*

Salt & Pepper Squid with Cucumber Salad $18

I did not realise it is available for lunch until I was there with my work mates. The lunches are at a lower price point, but no less impressive. I was really happy with the meal I had on the day, which was salt and pepper squid with Thai dressing. It was all you can hope for in salt and pepper squid:  lightly battered crispy exterior,  not overly chewy on the inside and the tangy and savoury Thai dressing simply tied the flavours together. Let’s just say I polished the bowl, including the dressing with the shared bowl of rice for the table. Yummo!

Since salt and pepper squid is a dish that can be done well in most places, I decided to go back, tagging along with my beloved and a friend in order to try the other dishes in the name of research ha!

I have been in Australia for about 10 9 years (originally from Malaysia - yep, another Malaysian in the food bloggers’ pool! ). Due to the nature of my beloved’s job, I have been leading a nomadic life, hopping from one regional area to another until we decided to settle down and have lots of babies. The blog started in early March 2010 when I was in Orange, New South Wales. I have just moved from Tasmania which I was there for 7 years. To retain my old job, I have also started to work from home as an accountant. Although working from home may sound like a dream to some of you, I think it depends on the nature of the “work from home”. Personally, I felt too isolated working remotely as an accountant. Then a close friend, who is a seasoned blogger, has encouraged me to start a blog and my beloved (he is the BEST!!!!) got the ball rolling by setting up the URL, hosting service and wordpress for me. Contemplating between food and fashion in which both are equally my favourite topics, I have decided on food because food bloggers seem to be nicer people, haha! Just kidding!! I feel fashion can be an intimidating topic for me especially I dress for comfort rather than style. I bet no one wants to see me in an oversized T-shirt and Pj pants in every blog post.
