Nishiki is an old style yakiniku shop located near Niwase station on the old route 2 (now route 162). I wanted to visit this place for a long time since it’s in the same family as Taiko, my favorite shop in Soja.
My third visit to Ho Chi Minh was marked by the major subway construction project taking place right in the center of the city and the numerous new restaurants which had sprung up since our last visit. The Workshop was on my list of new places to visit. The new coffee shop located right in the heart of Dong Khoi street attracted a lot of attention online and I went there the first day I landed in Vietnam.
When I saw the pictures of the Thali offered at Milenga appearing in my Facebook feed I became really curious about this new restaurant located in the Okayama Building.
Lin Heung Tea House was really high on my list of places to visit in Hong Kong. If your idea of a great meal is a quiet little restaurant, well, stop reading now, but if you aren’t afraid to fight for your food, Lin Heung is the place for you!!
I pretty much went straight from Hong Kong airport to Kau Kee Beef Noodles in Central.
Ramen shops are not created equal, but in the case of Ramen Jiro, we are talking about a category of its own. I wanted to eat at this particular shop since I arrived in Japan. I actually ate at the Shinjuku branch a few years ago, but a pilgrimage at the Mita shop is a must.
After waking up quite early in a Tokyo , I decided to head to the famous Blue Bottle roastery near the Kiyosumishirikawa station.
Oddly enough, you won’t find any stairs at L’escalier, but you might end up eating a great meal. I stumbled upon this place a few years ago while cycling but just recently paid a visit to this modern French restaurant.
When I googled up Malacca , I found that the city was famous for chicken rice ball and by luck, one very early morning, I ended strolling aimlessly in front of Kedai Kopi Chung Wah on Jonker street. The open door and the absence of a huge line just drew me in.
We spent 5 days in Malacca which turned out to be a long and boring 5 days filled with amazing food. Malacca or Melaka is a stunning beautiful city, but you can visit everything in 2 days. We started and ended our visit to Malacca with the life changing Pak Putra tandoori chicken. Yes, tandoori chicken can be this good!
Malacca or Maleka is a small jewel of a city which can quickly turn into a tourist trap. During my stay, I fell in love with Restoran Vazhai Elai which specialises in banana leaf curry. The restaurant was a short walk from our tiny hotel and about 25 min on foot from Jonker Street.
