I wish the bread didn't look so misshapen.
It's rustic. That means you can charge more.

I was asked if I would make Pescado a la Mexicana with only a rough translation of the recipe to work with. I looked on line for a similar recipe, but couldn't find one that was even close to it, so went with what I had. The meal came out tasting great, but was pretty sweet, because the plantain was very ripe. Plantains are fairly new to me, cooking wise, so wondered if anyone has used plantains with fish and how ripe you'd recommend them to be.

Plantains are quite hard to cut in general. Ripe ones make the job easier. Try frying them in peanut oil for a classic Ivory Coast delicacy.

Plantains taste completely different when ripe. When they are fully black they can be quite sweet like bananas, but when they are still greenish you can flatten them and fry them and they almost taste like potatoes.  :)

By the way, you should cut them into pieces previously.

Had a one day layover in San Francisco so found a sushi bar near the hotel for dinner



The Sushi is much better in SF than SG, I miss this city.

Ahhhh, but can you get a thick plate of fried noodles with extra grease and chilli sauce with fish head soup on the side in San Francisco ?

I think you probably can though I don't recall much fish head soup in San Francisco.  Certainly not fish head curry though.
