Aoki – Beef Bowl Addiction

  Beef Donburi I am completely addicted to the beef bowl in Aoki. Just imagine melt-in-the-mouth beef slices (Medium doneness for me) over warm Japanese rice topped with a wobbling soft-boiled egg and negi. YUMS. The happiness bowl comes in 3 sizes – 50g, 70g & 100g of beef. Take my advice and just go for the largestRead More

[Denmark] Ti Trin Ned – An Intimate Affair

It is the time of the year again to head back to the mother ship. This time round, instead of opting to fly into Billund through a connecting flight, I opted to disembark at Copenhagen and drove my way west to Jutland (since cost wise it works out to be the same). It was slightlyRead More

Viet Lang – Authentic Vietnamese Food in Singapore #12

Viet Lang is located in the beautiful arts house (the old parliament). LEMONGRASS WHISKY – This combination is a killer, it was so good that I had two. PRAWN SALAD – Very refreshing but unfortunately, the prawns were overcooked. BANH XEO (Vietnamese Crepe) – Viet Lang’s version was small and compact. The crepe was too thick and thus, turned soggy quickly. A ratherRead More

Now that both K and I are based in Singapore and there is some sort of stability – we are back to our joint culinary adventures once again! The first establishment we visited was Ember (in June this year). I believe Ember has been over-blogged (if there is such a term) – however, I hadRead More

[Billund] No.8 – Finer than expected

First business trip since my return to the corporate world = (severe jetlag + low energy level) * first few days. The first week was spent in Prague where so much was happening I couldn’t figure day from night. Needless to say, I did not have the chance to experience any authentic Czech food nor breath inRead More

Waku Ghin – Wowed

Waku Ghin was recently voted as the #2 best restaurant in the annual ranking of Asia’s top 20 restaurants held by the Miele guide.

[Melbourne] Circa The Prince – Modern Elegance

So, here I am – nicely settled in Melbourne. In case you are wondering…nope, I am not calling this home for good.
