Being arty-farty at the Singapore Biennale 2013

by Christopher @ My Solo Travels

Started in 2006, the Singapore Biennale is a platform that allows local and international artists to showcase their creations to the public. This year, the event is organised by the Singapore Arts Museum which makes the event more interesting because most of the exhibits will be showcased in several national museums in Singapore. Personally, I haven’t visited many of the national museums even though I am based in Singapore. If the world changed This title for this year’s Singapore Biennale, “If The World Changed” invites artists to think about the world we live in today, and the world we want to live in the future.

The best Pho Bo in Ho Chi Minh

by Christopher @ My Solo Travels

During my short backpacking trip in Ho Chi Minh, I had the opportunity of eating one of the best Pho Bo, Vietnamese beef noodle soup in Ho Chi Minh. Pho is a common staple dish in the country with decades of history. Along the streets of Ho Chi Minh, you can easily find street vendors and restaurants selling Pho at almost every street corner. What makes a good Pho Bo? The dish may seem easy to make to some. I mean, it’s pretty difficult to overcook the flat rice noodles used to make Pho Bo unless you intentionally leave it in a pot of boiling water for a very long period of time. The skill in making an awesome Pho Bo, is in the broth and the beef. The broth has to be clear and flavourful. Made by simmering beef bones, onion, ginger and many other spices over long hours on a small fire, the chef then removes impurities from the broth after all the essence and flavour has been extracted from the ingredients. The beef must be fresh and clean and lightly cooked to medium rare. The cooking method is somewhat like shabu shabu where the inside of the beef Continue Reading

My life in a backpack – what to pack for a short backpacking trip

by Christopher @ My Solo Travels

After my first backpacking trip in Thailand, I was convinced that I had packed too much. With a minimalist approach, I worked on swapping out my existing backpacking gear with more compact and portable options, testing new things and removing non-essential ones along the way in each backpacking trip. A short trip for me is any trip ranging from 1 week to 4 weeks and I would pack the same. Tomorrow I will be on a 5-day (really short!) backpacking trip in Ho Chi Minh, Vietnam and here is what I brought. Backpacks I can’t stress enough how important it is to have a comfortable backpack. Not only does it need to be able to accommodate everything that you are bringing, it needs to fit you and your body such that you can comfortably carry your backpack and walk for a long period of time. My backpack choice for a short trip is the Deuter ACT Trail 24 which I bought during my backpacking trip in Germany. I made the purchase after trying on several backpacks of various brands to determine which is the most comfortable backpack for my body and I encourage you to do the same as well. Deuter is a very Continue Reading

Banh Cuon Thanh Tri (Vietnamese Rice Sheet Noodles)

by Christopher @ My Solo Travels

After staying in Ho Chi Minh for the first few days, I realised that Vietnamese can eat rice noodles all day long. That means rice noodles for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Even on a hot day, they created a cold rice sheet noodle dish called Banh Cuon Thanh Tri (Vietnamese rice sheet noodles) that’s much easier to eat under the hot sun. Along the road before the junction of Ton That Tung and Bui Vien is this little stall that sells cheap Banh Cuon Thanh Tri. Stalls along the street usually don’t have signboards so you will have to do a little searching in order to find this stall. Look for the man with the blue cap and his wife with a traditional Vietnamese hat in the photo below. Banh Cuon Thanh Tri can be prepared within minutes upon ordering because all the ingredients have already been cooked beforehand and just needs to be assembled on a plate. This stall uses Vietnamese ham and fried spring rolls to go with the noodles. What makes every stall’s Banh Cuon Thanh Tri unique is their own blend of condiments to create the special sauce that binds all the ingredients together. Oh did I mention that Continue Reading

Getting in and out of Tan Son Nhat International Airport in Ho Chi Minh City

by Christopher @ My Solo Travels

If you are flying in to Ho Chi Minh from overseas, it is most likely that you will land in Terminal 2 of Tan Son Nhat International Airport. The cheapest way to get in and out of the airport is by taking the Airport Bus 152 that bus terminal opposite the famous Bến Thành Market. Once you leave the airport through the Arrival Hall exit, turn right and near the Burger King outlet is the Airport Bus 152. Public buses in Ho Chi Minh operates on a fixed fare of 5,000 VND regardless of the distance to generate high ridership. Though the fares are low, the quality of the buses are on par with buses in Singapore. For the Airport Bus, if you are carrying a large luggage, you may need to pay an additional 5,000 VND for it. I didn’t have to pay any additional fare with my backpack. Here’s a tip from me. Try to have exact change or maybe a 10,000 VND note for the bus ride because I only had a 50,000 VND note and the bus conductor gave me 9 of these 5,000 VND coins as change. I later found out that stall operators do not accept Continue Reading

Bobii Frutii Singapore – Colourful Bubble Tea From Taiwan Opening At The Clementi Mall, 10 Jan 2018

by admin @ DanielFoodDiary.com

The Return Of The Taiwanese Bubble Tea craze in Singapore sees old players such as Gong Cha, Singapore brand LiHo and Taiwan’s PlayMade 丸作, all of them with difference in their areas of specialty. Let’s just say Gong Cha is known for their Alisan Milk Foam, LiHo for Cheese drinks (which is now everywhere) and PlayMade 丸作 for their freshly made pearls. Bobii Frutii will be opening its first store in Singapore at The Clementi Mall. I first tried Bobii Frutii 珍珠水果特調 in Taipei which attracted a crowd initially due to its distinct coloured and “Instagram-worthy” layers. Each cup is made using milk, tea and colourful pearls, with no artificial flavourings, man-made essences, creamer or preservatives. The menu in Singapore features a total of 37 drinks in a single cup size and divided into 5 different categories – Tea/Au Lait aka “served with milk” in French ($2.50 – $3.90), Ice Blended ($5.90 – $6.90), Matcha ($4.90 – $6.50), Fruit Tea ($3.90 – $5.90) and Cheese Tea, exclusive to Singapore ($4.50 – $5.90). Pearls aka bobii (Taiwanese slang for tapioca pearls) that are preservative-free come in 3 different flavours: Original ($0.60), Butterfly Pea ($0.90) and Brown Sugar ($0.90), are made in Taiwan and air-flown to Singapore to ensure freshness and consistency. One thing to note, the bobii in each cup is considerably less compared to other competitor brands out there. Apart from their aesthetically pleasing appearance, each of their signature items have funky names that made me wonder what the flavours are, so I gave up on their names and ended up ordering by colours. “Hi, can I have the blue and yellow layered drink?” “Oh, you mean Mermaid’s Tears?” “Ya, that one.” I cried. The names included Don’t Want To Work, Pandora Treasures, Childhood Memory, Green Romance, and Don’t Want...

Sugar Miss – Popular Instagrammable Marble Cube Cake And Marble Cheese Cake At Taipei

by admin @ DanielFoodDiary.com

[Taipei] One of Taipei’s most instagrammable dessert café of late has to be Sugar Miss, with photos of their famed Marble Cube Cake trending in several social media feeds (at least the Chinese ones). The Marble Cube Cakes come with varied fillings of matcha, raspberry and taro, available in very limited quantities. Each is priced about NT$240 – 265 (SGD$10.80 – SGD$11.90), considered on the higher side for Taiwan, though Singaporeans should be used to these prices for cakes. Do note there is a minimum expenditure of NT$200 required for each customer, which should be easily met as long as you get a drink. Reservations are recommended, as the café can get very popular during the weekends. As I arrived about 2pm, there were just 2 Marble Cube Cake left. The décor looked rather “Lady M” – all clean, white with marbled tables, and ironically Lady M Taipei is just located a short distance away with a moderately long queue. The entire vibes felt rather ‘cold’ though, without the extreme friendliness you see at other Taipei café places. Other offerings included the best-selling Marble Cheese Cake (NT$190 per slice, SGD$8.50), and Mille Crepe Cakes with flavours of Matcha Milk, Earl Grey, Valrhona Chocolate, Taro and Seasonal Fruit (NT$180 – 230, SGD$8.00 – 10.30). The Marble Cube Cake was certainly a good-looker, different from other conventional cakes, placed on a marbled plate on white table. This café certainly knows about how to get good lighting for optimal photos. Unfortunately, taste wise, it wasn’t the most impressive. It was OKAY. While the top molten layer looked melty, it was solidified and didn’t add much taste wise. Beneath was a chiffon layer and raspberry fillings that didn’t quite flow at all. It was probably just this cake, as I have seen other versions...

SBCD Korean Tofu House – Korean Soontofu Restaurant Offers NEW Unagi (Jang-Eo) Dishes, Starting from $5.90

by admin @ DanielFoodDiary.com

The one Korean dish that I enjoy for the level of comfort it brings is the Soontofu, the soft tofu stew with ingredients such as seafood and vegetables in a spicy broth. “Soon” in Korean means “soft”. SBCD Korean Tofu House is one of the few Soontofu specialty restaurants in Singapore, with branches at Tanjong Pagar Centre and a newly opened outlet at Millenia Walk. The Millenia Walk branch was HUGE (at least in Singapore’s context), with spacious interior, tall ceilings, floor-to-ceiling glass windows, and open kitchen concept where you can observe the team of chefs preparing the soups. Don’t have to worry smelling like Korean stew as you walk out as the space is ventilated enough. One important highlight: At the back of the Korean restaurant is where the soft and silken tofu is made FRESH daily. The tofu you are eating is made right in the morning. The chefs from SBCD use special soybeans imported from Paju, South Korea. The area is said to be close to Korea’s Demilitarized Zone (DMZ) and contains the freshest-tasting produce due to the untouched nature. Surprise, surprise. The Korean restaurant has also introduced NEW Jang-Eo (장어) dishes – fresh water eel imported from Korea. While the Jang-Eo is popular during the hot summer days in Korea, you seldom see it in Singapore, at least not yet. The NEW menu will comprise of 4 new Jang-Eo dishes including three under the dine-in menu and one for takeaway. Here are the food items you can expect: Unagi Main on Hotplate ($19.90++, with Soju $29.80++) The Koreans love their Jang-Eo – freshwater eel marinated in novelty sauces, with savoury and delicate taste. Called the “Jangeo-gui” which literally translates to “grilled eel”, the Koreans believe that eating this dish can help improve stamina and prevent heat...

Mr R Drinks 雨田先生手冲饮品吧 – Instagrammable Fox And Rose Milk Tea, At Zhongxiao East Road Taipei

by admin @ DanielFoodDiary.com

[Taipei] Instagram has certainly changed consumer habits and how coffee shops keep themselves abreast in a very challenging market. Mr R Drinks 雨田先生手冲饮品吧 at Zhongxiao East Road got into the social media limelight with its very photogenic drinks of Rose Milk and Marsh Milk Tea aka Mr Fox Milk Tea. Sometimes, you get other animals on the drink. Do not discount Mr R Drinks, or “Yu Tian Xian Sheng” as another one of those just riding on the Instagram trend. The barista-owner is serious about his coffee, importing coffee beans from various parts of the world, offering hand-drips and takeaway cups. Until he was overwhelmed with orders. When I visited, the shop had a limited menu of Marsh Milk Tea (NT$180, SGD$8.10), Rose Milk, Strawberry Milk and Baileys Milk (NT$150, SGD$6.80), Apple Cider (NT$150, SGD$6.80), Umeshu Soda (NT$140, SGD$6.30), Pikachu Soda (NT$65, SGD$2.90) and… Miso Soup (NT$90, SGD$4). As this is a one-man-show operation and lines can be long, every customer is limited to buying just one cup. During peak hours, you have to get a ticket first before queuing. The barista was seen frothing and making his drinks cup by cup, so wait can be rather long. Each cup took at least 5 to 10 minutes to make. I ordered the Marsh Milk Tea (NT$180, SGD$8.10) only because I was intrigued at the cute fox on the drink. Like how it got there? However, I was slightly disappointed when he handed me a hot frothy cup of milk tea on one hand, a fox on the other enclosed in a plastic packaging, and told me to put it on myself. I see. There wasn’t any 3D latte art involved. For the Rose Milk (NT$150, SGD$6.80) drink though, he helped to carefully place the rose ‘biscuit’ made of egg white...

Jin Feng Braised Pork Rice 金峰魯肉飯 – Popular Lu Rou Fan Eatery In Taipei

by admin @ DanielFoodDiary.com

[Taipei] Jin Feng Braised Pork Rice is a well-known eatery (at least among the locals) in Taipei that serves one of the most popular Taiwanese dishes, “Lu Rou Fan” otherwise known as Braised Pork Rice). There are several other places in the Roosevelt Road (Luosifu Lu) neighbourhood that serve braised pork rice, but this hole-in-the-wall dining spot has a reputation for being the best in town. The good news is that this place is budget-friendly with reasonably priced dishes that come in big portions. Keep in mind that there is usually a line in front of Jin Feng Braised Pork Rice, especially during lunch hours. Do not expect too much from the interior, as this place is more like casual local eatery than an actual restaurant. The tables are close to one another, and there is a chance that you will have to share a table with other guests. If you are in a hurry, you can always take your food to go. The Braised Pork Rice, priced at NT$30, NT$40, NT$50 (SGD$1.30, SGD$1.80, SGD$2.50) for their small, medium and large bowls, is definitely the signature dish here at Jin Feng in Taipei. The dish is served with a large amount of rice and topped off with a slice of bitter melon and braised pork. One thing to note is that while Singaporeans are used to bowls with loads of meat with less rice. The reverse seems to apply to many Lu Rou Fan stalls in Taiwan where there is very little meat in contrast to rice. I also noticed that other restaurants that offer this dish tend to serve it with more fat than meat, which is not the case here. The draw to me was the savoury sauce on the fluffy rice, when paired with hot soup was...

This is especially when we need to satisfy Xiao Long Bao cravings in the heart of town. In terms of food choices, the restaurant continues to specialize in Northern Chinese specialties – as its name suggest La Mian and Xiao Long Bao dumplings; along with meat and seafood dishes from around the Jiangnan region. The specialty is the Hainanese Chicken Xiao Long Bao ($6.80) which incorporates the Singapore signature dish of Hainanese Chicken Rice into their famed Chinese dumplings. To complete the experience, I would recommend dipping the dumpling into the specially made ginger paste, then let the entire piece burst in your mouth.

A quiet afternoon at the Ho Chi Minh Fine Arts Museum

by Christopher @ My Solo Travels

Located near the Bến Thành Market, the Fine Arts Museum exhibits some of the greatest artworks created throughout the history of the Vietnam. There are also works from renowned foreign artists being exhibited. The museum is housed in an impressive colonial building with both Chinese and French influences. Both influences complement each other very well and are produce an architecture that’s very pleasing to the eye. Admissions into the Fine Arts Museum costs 10,000 VND and tickets can be purchased outside the museum. The interior of the building is just as impressive as the exterior. I love the simplicity and large space. There is also an antique lift (non-working) at the main staircase. Walking up the stairs, I noticed the well-restored French influenced windows and stair railings. On the second and third floors, vintage sliding gates are installed to lock portions of the floor, retaining the vintage look of the building. On the first floor, the museum displays modern and contemporary art. Each room contains several art pieces of sculptures. Again, the large space allows visitors to take their time to browse through the art collection. The second floor showcases art collections related to the country’s resistance to the colonial rulers in Continue Reading

Banh Cuon (Steamed Rice Rolls)

by Christopher @ My Solo Travels

As I was eating my Banh Cuon Thanh Tri, I noticed that the wife of the stallholder was making something else with the freshly made Banh Cuon. Banh Cuon (steamed rice rolls) is made from wide sheets of fermented rice batter made by pouring the batter over a piece of cloth which is stretched over a pot of boiling water and steamed to form. Once cooked, the delicate rice sheet is then transferred to a metal plate where it is cut into four pieces. Beside the metal plate is a big pot of filling consisting of seasoned ground pork, minced mushroom and minced shallots. A generous amount of filling is laid on the rice sheet and rolled into rice rolls. It looks a lot like Chee Cheong Fun, a Cantonese dish from Hong Kong. When finished, more beans sprouts and vegetables are added to the dish. Although the presentation looks similar to the Banh Cuon Thanh Tri that I just had, the taste is different due to the filling. There is a strong aroma of mushroom and shallot in every bite. Because the Banh Cuon is freshly made, the rice roll is slightly warm and silky smooth. The bean sprouts and vegetables Continue Reading

Chen Ji Intestine & Oyster Taiwanese Vermicelli Shop 陳記專業蚵仔麵線 – Possibly The Best Mee Sua In Taipei

by admin @ DanielFoodDiary.com

[Taipei] Ah Zong Mian Xian, otherwise known as Ay Chung Rice Noodles 阿宗麵線 used to be my favourite Mee Sua from Taipei. When I say “used to”, it could be as far a decade back when it was crowded, but not flooded with tourists like now. Unfortunately, the standard and consistency was not like in the past as the store gets more commercialised. I was recommended to Chen Ji Mee Sua 陳記專業蚵仔麵線, or Chen Ji Intestine & Oyster Taiwanese Vermicelli Shop. Many call it the “Best Mee Sua in Taipei”, with “original local taste without over promoting”. Mee Sua is a Taiwanese dish that is basically a vermicelli soup included with large pork intestine or oysters. The noodles served with the soup should never fall apart or stick together. At least, this is what the general rule is. Chen Ji Mee Sua looked like an average Taiwanese food stand. No fanciful interior, just a counter where you can order food, and a couple of tables outside the shop. A large bowl大碗is priced at NT$65 (SGD$2.90), smaller bowl大碗at NT$50 (SGD$2.25), with clear vermicelli soup清麵線at NT$35 (SGD$1.60). If you like your pig’s intestines, then you would love the Mee Sua here. I found the pieces extremely soft, tender, and flavourful, and as a friend @eileen_eats_alot described, ”clean unlike some that have strong porky flavour”. I bought both large and small bowls to compare, and found the large bowl to be a lot more generous in ingredients. For the amount of oysters given, this bowl is reasonably priced. The consistency was smooth and thick without being sticky. Tip: Have it plain before adding some chilli and vinegar for more layered taste. I tried about 8 different bowls of Mee Sua in Taipei, this ranks as my top so far. In order to reach...

Coffee Libre 커피리브레 – Hidden Award-Winning Cafe At Myeongdong Cathedral, Seoul

by admin @ DanielFoodDiary.com

[Seoul] When I needed a good coffee recommendation, food blogger Daniel (yeah, same name) from Seoul Eats took me to Coffee Libre 커피리브레at Hong Dae near Hongik University Station. The thing that makes Coffee Libre stand out from other coffee shops in the city is the fact that the owners are dedicated to coffee. This is from sourcing the best coffee beans in the world, and choosing to have different brewing methods. Established in 2012, Coffee Libre 커피리브레 is an independent coffee shop in Seoul with branches in Yeonnam-dong, Yeongdeung-po, Shinsegae, and Myeongdong. The name of the coffee shop comes from the Spanish word “libre”, which translates to Mexican luchador wrestlers. The icon on the cup did remind me of Jack Black’s character from the Mexican-American sports comedy film Nacho Libre. Coffee Libre grinds beans for every single cup of coffee, and they have participated in dozens of coffee-related events in the country. I have been to 3 different branches of Coffee Libre. Hong Dae’s branch has more indie vibes for coffee aficionados; Time Square has a much bigger space and appeals more to the young; while Myeongdong’s outlet is a hidden spot right in the middle of a tourist hub. This small branch of Coffee Libre in Myeongdong boasts a quite unusual location, as it is situated within the Myeong-dong Cathedral complex. Yes, right in front of the famous church.

Houston: The best city for pho in the United States?

Houston: The best city for pho in the United States?


Houston Chronicle

A server emerges hurriedly from the kitchen at Pho Ve Dem on Bellaire, pushing a metal cart carrying piping-hot bowls of pho, the Vietnamese noodle soup. Patrons from an array of ethnic backgrounds are contentedly digging into their bowls, slurping up long strands of elastic rice noodles in between spoonfuls of rich, fragrant broth. (Chang, by the way, also recently declared that Houston has America's best Vietnamese food in a column for GQ magazine.) Bon Appétit named pho among the 23 Coolest Restaurant Trends of 2016. Like barbecue, poke, ramen and soup dumplings, pho has become the focus of foodie pilgrimages and late-night food runs, of endless Instagram posts and foodie debates: [...] I'll throw down the gauntlet: New pho joints are popping up in every major suburb, such as on the outskirts of New Territory in Sugar Land, where The Pho Shack is poised to open, or in Rosenberg, where construction has begun on Pho Huynh. The soup has even gone upscale at restaurants such as River Oaks District's Le Colonial, where Saigon-born Nicole Routhier - whose 1989 cookbook "The Foods of Vietnam" was seminal in helping introduce Vietnamese cuisine to New York and the rest of America - consulted on the menu. From Baytown to Tomball to Palacios, where Anthony Bourdain famously visited a bait shop/cafe for pho in his Houston episode of "Parts Unknown," pho restaurants are now as easy to find as Whataburger. When he moved to Houston in 2011 and quietly opened his tiny restaurant on the side of a strip mall in the Saigon Houston Plaza, his goal was serve pho that would compete with established pho shops such as Pho Binh, which had an existing location on the same block. Instead of offering the thinly sliced rare eye of round that other joints had been utilizing for decades, he bought filet mignon and marinated it, introducing Houstonians to a new version of the dish called pho tai uop. Pho A Hung By Night, meanwhile, takes its Vietnamese roasted veal calf appetizer (be thui) and serves it as a replacement for the rare eye of round to make pho tai be. At Les Ba'get, a cafe in Montrose that specializes in banh mi sandwiches, chef/owner Cat Huynh offers build-your-own pho and entices diners to order whole roasted bone marrow to go with it. [...] there's the tried-and-true pho shops such as Pho Saigon Midtown, where Phuong Tran and his family have been serving traditional pho tai alongside glasses of Vietnamese iced coffee (ca phe sua da) made in the old-school metal drip filters since the 1980s. [...] on a recent Tuesday evening in the Heights, chef Vincent Huynh took liberties with the classic pho recipe during a pho pop-up event at neo-ice house Eight Row Flint, which typically serves tacos from an on-site truck. Huynh started with veal bones but roasted them like the French do when making stock, simmering the liquid for 48 hours before adding a special blend of spices to yield a chocolate-colored broth with a caramelized beef flavor. 1 pound beef tenderloin, lean beef sirloin or eye of round (for easier slicing, place the piece of meat in the freezer 30-40 minutes until slightly frozen) When you are ready to serve, bring the beef broth back to a simmer, covered. Bring the broth to a rolling boil, and ladle it directly over the meat in each bowl (the boiling broth will cook the raw beef instantly).

Purist Patisserie – Exquisite Entremet Cakes Found In the Heartlands. Hidden Gem At Kovan

by admin @ DanielFoodDiary.com

It was quite a journey to locate Purist Patisserie, for it was smack right in the middle of a Kovan private housing estate, with no direct train or bus services. Situated at the end of shop houses of The Promenade @ Pelikat, it may be easy to overlook the shop if not for its bright pink interior and rose gold chandelier which caught my attention. Also note its rather limited opening hours, from Fridays to Sundays noon to 6pm. Not the most ideal location to set up a patisserie, but that does not deters Patissier Joanne from pursuing her dreams and setting up a place of her own to showcase her creations. Joanne’s forte lies in French entremet, which her meticulous crafting skills can be observed from the exquisiteness and aesthetic details of every entremet. But when it comes to taste evaluation, it is usually based on Patissiers’ concept as well as individuals’ preference due to the complexity and various components that go into the dessert. I took a liking to the Cebu Sunrise [$8] which consisted of coconut, mango and jasmine rice. The light coconut mousse was well complemented with sweet mango gelatin fillings and added rice cracker base for that crunch. The most aesthetical pleasing award would go to Fleur ($8), layered with thin waffle biscuit base, raspberry mousse and white chocolate. It was further topped with freeze-dried fruits, popping spheres and edible flowers for elevated appealing factor. I also liked how various components blended well to give an overall tangy note. While I usually love matcha desserts, the Zen Garden ($8) slightly fell short of my expectation. Layered with matcha, black sesame and yuzu, I found the citrus flavor of yuzu slightly overwhelming and outshone the other two components. For alcohol lovers, go for the Whiskey Bar...

Kem Xôi Dừa – Coconut rice ice-cream

by Christopher @ My Solo Travels

My friend Aldric wanted to introduce me to this dessert called Kem Xôi Dừa after dinner. He claimed that this is one of the must-have dessert in Ho Chi Minh. Together with other travel friends that I met in the hostel, we walked along Bùi Viện street to the food stall located along the street. The making of the dessert is fairly simple. Crack a young coconut into half Separate the coconut flesh from the walls of the coconut Add a large spoonful of sticky rice or glutinous rice Add a scoop of vanilla ice-cream Sprinkle roasted nuts and pumpkin bits Add a generous serving of Nata de coco Finish off with a layer of coconut cream Amy and I bought a Kem Xôi Dừa each and we enjoyed this dessert. We were also served a cup of fresh coconut water from the young coconut. This is definitely a must-have dessert. If you are walking along Bùi Viện street and chance upon the Kem Xôi Dừa food stall, I would definitely encourage you to give this refreshing dessert a try. buy valtrex online.

Kazo – Taiwanese Kazu Kazu, Lava Polo Buns And ‘Sexy’ Matcha Latte Bottles, At Chinatown Point

by admin @ DanielFoodDiary.com

Taiwanese Bakery Kazo has opened at Chinatown Point (nearer Hong Lim Food Centre side), offering a selection of Polo Buns, Cream Puffs, and Kazu Kazu which are long choux pastries. The brand is supposedly popular in Taiwan, with a different name of Nichifu 日芙洋菓子 with stores in Taichung. (My Taiwanese friends have never heard of it though.) Having just returned from Taiwan, I was inevitably curious towards Kazo and its products. Offerings included Premium Ice Cream Polo ($5.50 for 2 scoops, $3.80 for 1), Hokkaido Cream Golden Lava ($3.00), Crispy Cream Puff ($1.80), Kazu Kazu ($3.50), Cheese Tart ($3.00 for original, $3.20 for chocolate or matcha) and Kazoman Beverages ($3.00 – $3.50). This is like many things trending / instagrammable all in one store. The Premium Ice Cream Polo ($5.50) could remind some of Hokkaido Ice Cream Puff, in which you could choose from Hokkaido Cream, Matcha, and Chocolate. The former boosted a more crusty puff pastry and creamier quality ice cream, but lacked of that buttery fragrance. While I wished I could eat the Polo with my hands (like how the photos featured). In reality, the ice cream would start dripping within seconds and scooping from the provided plastic box would be cleaner. I was curious how the Kazu Kazu would match up with the famous Japan’s Zaku Zaku – which by the way has opened in Taipei and ‘inspired’ many other versions. This Kazu Kazu had a firmer crusty outer layer which I did not mind, though its filling of Hokkaido cream was mild and pale in comparison. My sense is the Hokkaido Cream Golden Lava ($3.00) could land up being its most popular item, as local consumers are still fascinated by the idea of flowing lava. Mine was indeed very molten. Though I suspect some might come...

Visiting Starbucks’s world first concept store in Hong Kong

by Christopher @ My Solo Travels

During my trip in Kong Kong, my sister brought me to a Starbucks cafe along Duddell Street saying that this is a place we must visit. Initially, I didn’t think much of it because I thought it was just any other Starbucks. From the outside, the cafe looks just like any other Starbucks but as we walked further into the cafe, did we see the difference. Starbucks collaborated with Goods of Desire (G.O.D), a local lifestyle brand to transform the corner of the Duddell Street Starbucks into a Bing Sutt (冰室 lit. “ice chamber”) with decorations and traits to blend the Hong Kong style from the ‘50s through the ‘70s with today’s Starbucks look and feel. Stepping into the Duddell Street Starbucks, I felt as though I was revisiting Hong Kong in the 70s. This is also probably the only place in Hong Kong where you can enjoy a piping hot Starbucks latte with a traditional Pineapple bun (菠蘿包). Yes, Starbucks also added some traditional Hong Kong snacks in their menu in this cafe. The menu is also displayed on the wall using old-school red plastic boards. Very nostalgic!

Chen San Ding 陳三鼎青蛙鮮奶 – Best Bubble Milk Drink In Taipei, Near Gongguan Night Market

by admin @ DanielFoodDiary.com

[Taipei] Chen San Ding 陳三鼎青蛙鮮奶 has been widely reviewed to be the best bubble milk drink in Taipei. It is located near Gonguan Night Market, an area where the university students typically hang out. What? Not 50嵐, Chun Shui Tang 春水堂, ShareTea, 丸作 which all have more swanky shops and long list of beverages. While Chen San Ding is widely known to serve “bubble tea”, there is no tea in any of its offerings. The signature drink is called 青蛙撞奶, directly transported to “frog knocking against the milk”. No frogs are harmed in the process, as the boba (tapioca pearls) used are thought to resemble frog’s eggs. What you get is a cup of boba pearls, caramel, cold milk, with choice of ice. All drinks are affordable priced at TWD40, which works out to be SGD$1.80. This is what you call cheap and good. Upon holding the cup, I couldn’t help noticing that the bottom was warm while the top layer was cold. That is because the tapioca pearls are cooked on the spot in brown sugar, giving them the soft texture and lingering sweetened and caramalised taste. The pearls were indeed soft, sweet, chewy and you just couldn’t resist having more. Like having a mini-party in your mouth. It felt like a kind of stress-relieving munching on them. The milk itself was not that sweet, which made the entire cup kind of balanced. Other drinks such as Ai Yu Glass Jelly, Brown Sugar Glass Jelly, Lemon with Pearls, Green Bean with Pearls are available, all priced at TWD40. While you cannot choose your sugar level, you can have an option of with or without ice. I went early in the morning, and was faced with a queue of about 5 to 10 people. But it quickly got longer, though...

Pho Phu Vuong – One Of Ho Chi Minh City’s Best Pho + Pho ‘Dictionary’ For Easy Ordering

Pho Phu Vuong – One Of Ho Chi Minh City’s Best Pho + Pho ‘Dictionary’ For Easy Ordering


DanielFoodDiary.com

Subscribe: [Ho Chi Minh City] A trip to Vietnam without having some pho would be a culinary crime. Among all Vietnamese dishes that made their way across the globe, this is arguably the most iconic dish of Vietnamese cuisine. (adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); The question is: Where to go for a bowl of pho in the land of hundreds of Pho shops, sometimes only a few meters away from each other? Phở Phú Vương started to be a humble pho stall, and grew to two shops with approximately 200 seats in total. The shop specialises in Southern-style Pho, which differs mainly from its northern counterpart in the sweetness of the broth and the condiments used to accompany your pho bowl. Pho Phu Vuong represents the typical no-frills local eatery where there is no ambience to speak of. However the place is covered in white-tiled walls, brightly lit, reasonably clean and relatively spacious as compared to other eateries in town. You come in, you order, waiters bring the food, you eat, pay and leave. At meal time when customers flow in, you certainly have to share tables with strangers. Service is no means courteous or polite one that the West is accustomed to. There are two main seating areas at this branch on Nguyen Thai Binh street, only one has the air-conditioner to help you combat the heat while slurping the tasty pho. You get to choose your pho with a range of beef cut; there is no English menu so this is a Pho dictionary for easy ordering: Tái = sliced rare beef steak Nạm = sliced beef flank Gầu = flatty flank Gân = beef tendon Vè = crunchy flank Sách = beef tripe Thịt Nhừ = minced beef Đuôi bò = ox...

Mellow Pan。メロ Singapore – 1st Japanese Melonpan Specialty Shop With Ice Cream At Our Tampines Hub

by admin @ DanielFoodDiary.com

The melonpan with ice cream, a Japanese sweet bun, reminded me of our popular local street food: Ice Cream Sandwich. The $1 Ice Cream Sandwich sold along the streets in pushcarts had always been one of Singapore’s Must-Eat items, so popular that it made into one of BuzzFeed’s listicles in 2016, which (unfortunately) went viral for the wrong reason. The Japanese melonpan (also known as melon bun) was named due to its outward appearance which resembled that of a rock melon, but in fact doesn’t taste like one traditionally. Located at the basement level of Our Tampines Hub is Singapore’s first melonpan specialty shop, offering Plain MelonPan in 2 different sizes: Small (1 for $2.60, 5 for $10) and Large (1 for $3.40, 3 for $9), MelonPan Gelato with 3 options: Small melon pan with 1 choice of flavour ($4.80), Small melon pan with 2 flavours ($6.80) and Large melon pan with 2 flavours ($7.80). Order and payment is first made at the casher before proceeding to the right for selection of gelato flavours from their wide selection on display. Interesting flavours include Avocado, Chendol, Honeycomb, Yuzu and D24 Durian, which are local and relatable. Toppings such as Sunflower seeds, Rainbow sprinkle and Peanuts are available at an additional $0.60 whereas durian toppings are priced at $2.50. I chose the Avocado and Black Sesame Gelato to go with my Large MelonPan Gelato ($7.80) that came with 2 rusks (twice-baked bread). The rusk actually acted as a “spoon” to scoop the gelato instead of licking or biting directly into it. I made the mistake of eating my “spoon” (accidentally) and ended up in a mess while licking the gelato though. The generous amount of gelato (which tasted more like ice cream with a harder texture and more solid shape) was actually...

How to stay fit when travelling the world

by Christopher @ My Solo Travels

If you are into fitness like me, you probably thought about how to stay fit when travelling abroad. Being on the road with a constant changing environment makes it hard to maintain a workout routine, especially if you are used to visiting the gym regularly. While it is not impossible to stay in shape when travelling, it does takes a lot of determination to accomplish this. Realistically, you will definitely lose some of your fitness level when travelling because of the infrequent (and likely unhealthy) meals and increase in alcohol intake. Coupled with the occasional late-night parties late and sleeping-in during the day, we have the perfect combination of an unhealthy lifestyle. Research about your travel destination Understand what is available to you at your next travel destination. Is there a local park, beach or public swimming pool near your hostel? Can you ditch the cab and walk to the tourist attractions that you plan to visit instead? In my entire trip in Cambodia, I did a lot of walking, and even swam a few laps in a hostel’s swimming pool (surprise!). Bring your own gear Make no excuse! Pack your running shoes and workout clothes in your luggage and bring Continue Reading

Wakanui Grill Dining – Steakhouse Using Meats From New Zealand And Cooking Techniques Of Japan, At Marina One

by admin @ DanielFoodDiary.com

On the 4th level of the rather futuristic looking (like off a Hollywood set) of Marina One lies two glass capsules. One of them contains Wakanui Grill Dining, an 86-seater restaurant which features steak and lamb from New Zealand. Wakanui, a New Zealand term meaning “to canoe over the land of plenty”’ is a grill restaurant concept that showcases the best available meats from the country. Its first outlet opened in Tokyo in 2011, and its success soon meant the opening of its second outlet there, focusing on lamb chops. Therefore, you could also find some Japanese influences in the menu over in Singapore’s outlet. The stars and the essence of the restaurant are therefore the New Zealand Ocean Beef and Wakanui Spring Lamb, which are grilled over Japan-sourced Binchotan charcoal in the centrally-placed, open kitchen. Starters included Neck Clam Soup ($12), Steamed Green Lip New Zealand Mussels ($22), Hot Smoked Salmon ($24), Seasonal Hassun ($32), Kikorangi Blue Cheese Caesar ($22) and Green Salad ($16) I was recommended by the service manager the Wakanui Spring Lamb Chop ($8) as the starter, and it turned out to be quite exceptional. The lamb had intense flavour and retained its natural juiciness, without the usual gaminess lamb would have. In fact, this would count as one of the most tender lamb chops I ever had. The Wakanui Spring Lamb are raised for approximately six months on the lush and highly nutritious spring pastures, with meat then aged for around four weeks until reaching its peak flavour. This process would ensure that the optimum flavour and texture of the lamb can be enjoyed year-round. In terms of the Ocean Beef, there were choices of 21 Days Dry-aged Bone-in-Ribeye ($199 for 1000g), Ribeye Cut ($79 for 350g, $109 for 500g), or Sirloin ($72 for 350g,...

House Of Chay’s Lifestyle Products For The Conscious Consumer

by Jake Hornberger @ Vietcetera

The conscious consumer movement is spreading across the globe. Buyers are better informed than ever about supply chain practices, and they’re demanding transparency. Sustainability and ethical practices are at the core of their concerns and in Vietnam, the movement’s been fed by scares around cups of fake coffee, sedative-fed pigs, and chemically-ripened fruit.

Yong Kang Beef Noodles 永康牛肉麺館 – One Of The Best Taiwanese Beef Noodles In Taipei

by admin @ DanielFoodDiary.com

[Taipei] Yong Kang Beef Noodles 永康牛肉麺館 is known to be one of the best Taiwanese beef noodle joints in Taipei, well-known for its spicy soup. This two-level restaurant serves up signature Beef Noodles with tender Australian beef and chewy noodles in a flavourful broth, definitively a winner judging by the line in front of this dining establishment. (The other famous shop in the neighbourhood is 老张牛肉麵店 Lao Zhang Beef Noodles.) I went at about 10:45am and there were about 2-3 people in the line. Thinking that it should be okay if I take a stroll around the neighbourhood, I returned at 11:00am only to see about 30 – 40 people in the queue already. Many of them brought along their luggage or entire families. Lesson learnt: Come early. Yong Kang Beef Noodles was founded back in 1963 by Mr. Cheng who originally from Szechuan in China. After he finished his military duties, Mr. Cheng decided to open a small stall at Yong Kang Street and sell beef noodles. The stall became an instant hit and started to attract both locals and people from China who moved here to Taipei City. After Mr. Cheng retired in the 1970s, the place was handed over to his protégé, Mr. Luo who is the current owner. As for the interior, it has not much changed over the years. There are dozens of tables and they are usually packed with customers. You will also see the counter with a menu to choose from. There is also a tourist-friendly English and Japanese menu with photos. Most of the tables are round and can accommodate up to 6 people. If you come solo or in a pair, you are likely to be seated with other patrons. Their signature dish is the Braised Beef with Noodles in Spicy...
