A Simple Snack

Sometimes the simplest things are often the best

I’d run out of the night before’s roast beef to make beef fajitas, and with just a single wrap and a few slices of Monterey Jack cheese, I decided to go simple.

I think the ratio of cheese to wrap was possibly swaying towards the cheese, and it made a molten mess as it melted and oozed out the edges and into the frying in the pan.

The cheese, which I think has a wonderful texture suited to fajitas, but not too much taste when in the fajita, somehow becomes very intensely…cheesy…for want of a better word, when it fries. It also gets all crispy, giving each mouthful an extra satisfying crunch.

Any suggestions on why the change in flavour is so great ? Or am I just late to the game in realising everything does indeed taste better when fried ?


a bit of Tex Mex in boat quay

A quick post to note that if you ever are around Boat Quay and fancy some Tex Mex food, check out Dallas Bar and Restaurant.  We only tried the bar food which is pretty standard – BBQ chicken wings, corn and crab fritters (which were crisp and not too greasy at all) and nachos, but we ordered the beef fajitas on the recommendation of the owner, Jason, a fellow Australian, which were just fabulous – tender and juicy beef strips where you can add as much or as little of refried beans, guacamole, sour cream and caramelised onion as you liked, on a warm flour tortillas.  Delicious !  If you want to eat, it’s much cooler upstairs and I did spot baby back ribs on the menu…
