Cooking Thai food in Chiang Mai

A few weekends ago, I embarked on one of the crazier travel decisions of my life – going to Thailand for a mere 3 days (it’s a 9 hr plane flight from Sydney, which is in fact close to essentially no other cities in the world) for a wedding and to reunite with all the … Continue reading

Asian fusion at Gingerboy

I took a wonderful trip to Melbourne and the surrounding gorgeous countryside and beaches of Victoria after Christmas when my mother was visiting me a few weeks ago, which of course meant many new wining and dining experiences.  I’ve written about the absolutely glorious food in Melbourne before in my previous visit there where I … Continue reading

Bibimbap and other delights in Seoul

  A couple weeks ago, I had the great fortune to be able to visit the very cold but delightful city of Seoul in South Korea.  The language barrier there is pretty intense, but luckily one language we all have in common is pointing to things we want to eat.  Korean restaurants are great for … Continue reading

Fantastic food in Siem Reap

Going to Siem Reap in Cambodia was without a doubt one of the best trips (and certainly the most meaningful on a grander scale) I have taken since re-locating to Manila.  The country is stunning, the people are incredible and truly moving, and the temples are awe-inspiring, but I expected all this.  What I did … Continue reading

Unabashed gluttony in Taipei

A couple weekends ago, I got the opportunity to do a solo trip to Taipei, which meant that I spent the entire weekend eating.  Happily this is extremely acceptable in Taipei, as the entire city revolves around food.  It was without a doubt one of the most fun food adventure cities I’ve ever been to. … Continue reading

Michelin starred dim sum in Hong Kong

A few weeks ago, I had the pleasure of a fantastic weekend in Hong Kong with the boys on my team.  I have been to HK – in fact it was my first experience in Asia a little over a year ago, but coming back for a second time after seeing other spots in Asia … Continue reading

Markets in Manila

I meant to write about markets in Manila ages ago, as this happened my first weekend here, but life got crazy.  Anyway, as some of you may know, my one of my (many) obsessions is food markets all over the world.  I feel that there is no better way to pick up on a country’s … Continue reading

Brunching with veggies in NYC

So, I am just going to skip all around the world in these entries now and not do them chronologically…plenty more entries to come on food in Southeast Asia, but I must take a temporary break to discuss eating in one of my favorite cities in the world: NYC.   One of my favorite couples … Continue reading

Eating solo in Singapore

  Ah yes, I have of course fallen into the inevitable blog trap of ALWAYS being behind on my blogs.  But at least I know I have 5 entries I should be writing at any given time so there is never a shortage.  Anyway, these pics are from a few weeks back when I decided … Continue reading

Eating our way through Melbourne

So about 24 hours after returning from Italy, I was off to the airport again, this time for a company retreat in rural Victoria.  Yes, it basically feels like I have been on vacation for a solid two weeks now (and it is amazing).  After the retreat, I went with three friends from work to … Continue reading
