Anyone who’s spent enough time on Instagram will have seen this infamous candy floss originating from Tokyo’s trendy Harajuku district. I basically just bought an obnoxiously large rainbow candy floss and I regret nothing! … More Giant rainbow candy floss in Harajuku, Tokyo!
Yes, the clue is in the name. Today’s post is about sushi bars in Tokyo that are standing-room-only. Reasonably priced sushi which is freshly prepared in front of you. Two friends of mine recommended one in Shinjuku and I also stumbled across one in Shibuya. For all intense and purposes, they’re the same but I’ll … More Tokyo’s standing sushi bars
Well hello there. Long time no blog. Fear not, I have plenty of new content coming. Let’s get started with Barcelona which I visited earlier this summer. A disclaimer before I begin: I’m a big foodie. I like cooking food, looking at food and scoffing food. But I like good food. Some people eat to … More 5 of Barcelona’s best tapas bars
After a jam-packed week in Singapore, it’s time for a wrap-up post. This is my seventh post in my ‘Can I live here?’ experiment. (Check out my previous wrap-up posts here). After six collective weeks in China, Taiwan and Malaysia, let’s see how Singapore compared! Despite being the penultimate country/city on my list, Singapore was actually … More Singapore wrap-up: Can I live here?
Like pretty much anywhere in Asia, you’ll never be short of insanely delicious things to eat in Singapore. Whichever meat (or fish) you prefer, you must try fresh satay. Once you’ve eaten it fresh, the packaged sauce from the supermarket back home will never taste the same. Satay originated from Indonesia but the question of … More Where to find the best satay in Singapore!
The people I stayed with, the lovely Australians Mika and Chris, kindly gave me a hearty list of eatery recommendations in my ‘welcome pack’. As they lived on the Western outskirts of Kuala Lumpur a lot of their favourite restaurants (and soon to be mine) were local to them (Mont Kiara way). But Mont Kiara is only about a 15 minute taxi ride from central KL and well worth a visit – plenty of shopping and eating opportunities! … More Kuala Lumpur: Where and what to eat
Poor Taipei often gets overlooked in favour of its bolshy neighbours (the likes of Shanghai and Hong Kong in particular) but Taipei has plenty to offer too! Make sure you check it out too. Personally, I’m a bit of an obsessive over-planner and, having booked my Asia trip several months in advance, I’d foolishly only allocated a week to visit Taipei. … More Top 10 things to do in Taipei
Being a vegetarian or a not-very-big-meat-eater definitely presents its challenges in Asia. I’m more the latter of the two; I don’t mind some meat dishes but I just can’t eat anything that resembles a corpse of some kind! Nor can I eat something if someone’s not able to tell me what type of meat it … More Top 6 vegetarian Taiwanese snacks
Despite consuming various yummy Taiwanese food and drink, I was still hankering after some fresh sushi. To solve this immediately, a quick Google search led me to the Addicted Aquatic Development north of central Taipei; a seafood wet market-cum-restaurant complex. It’s definitely not as large and infamous as Tokyo’s Tsukiji Market nor is it as reasonably priced but … More Taipei: Fresh sushi in Addicted Aquatic Development
I’m probably going to be admitting to a cardinal sin of travel here but here we go: wherever I go in Asia, I love to find a western brunch or casual cafe and just devour western comfort food. There, I said it. I seek out western food when I’m in Asia. Don’t get me wrong, … More Mia Cucina: Western comfort food in Taipei
