If you live in Sydney area, you probably would know a restaurant called Hurricane’s Grill and Bar Restaurant. First opened in Bondi Beach, now they finally opened in Darling Harbour; which is perfect because the location is really close to my home, and I have nothing to worry about the headache of finding the car parking location. They are really popular with their Grilled American Pork Ribs, which tastes amazing. However, towards the end of the meal, you will get really stuffed up and sick just by looking at it, but we still come back for more every now and then. Beside ordering my favorite dish, I always order their Chicken Caesar Salad which is perfect to balance those meaty flavor.

Inspired by their Chicken Caesar Salad, I invented my own to imitate theirs. Turned out mine tastes quite different. Probably because I did not use the anchovies, grilled bacon, and parmesan cheese as their one. I also added new twist on my dressing, that is by adding the Japanese mayonnaise. I love Japanese mayonnaise. It could add the creamier and rich taste to a meal. My days old bread or I should said my month old bread as my croutons just add another dimension to my Chicken Caesar Salad dish. I know what you all think, ‘How could I?’, but they were miraculously taste OK and normal.

Next time I make this dish, I would:

  1. Add the grilled bacon and parmesan cheese.
  2. Make my decent croutons (will posted the recipe later if I succeed).
  3. Make my own Caesar salad dressing and mayonnaise (will also posted the recipe later if they taste good).
