A quick meal: Italian Mussels

After a night of Sichuan Hotpot, there are so much left over. What can I do with them, if I don't want another round of hotpot? Going through the fridge and found myself with some mussels. Let make Italian mussels! :)

Tasmanian Mussels
In the cupboard found this sauce, Arrabbiata, with a dash of chili. Good enough to be the base!

Barilla: Arrabbiata
Heat the pot with garlic and shallot. (I found later that brown onion should be more tastier).

Chopped Garlic

Chopped Shallot
Added shallot and parsley to garnish. 

Ready to Serve
I have toasted a few slice of bread to mop up all the jus! :D
I would like to mop up the dish with more toast please!

Portuguese Chicken Sandwich, Sydney

This little sandwich bar always has a queue during lunch time peak hour. You can also missed out on their Portuguese chicken if you are there too late!

I am glad that even at 1:30pm I still able to get it. Tasty mayo with a dash of chili spice and the chicken is always juicy. These are the reasons why I will go back again and again. 

Portuguese Chicken Sandwich in Wholemeal Bread
As you can see its massive size which costs $8.50 at Wynard area. That's why everyone will queue here for their sandwich. They can also make it into wrap at $7.50 which is a smaller version or even in specialty breads, such as rye bread with extra 30 cents. (Prices are current as at 4 April 2012)
