FLAMINGO ROOMS BY TASHAS

by doodle diaries @ Doodle Diaries DXB

Winner, winner – we have found one of our favourite dinners! If you, like me, have long been a fan of Tashas in Galleria Mall, then you will fall in love with the new Flamingo Rooms by Tashas. Located on the Turtle Lagoon at Jumeirah Al Naseem, neighbouring other fantastic restaurants such as Il Borro and Black Tap, this vibrant and stylish outdoor hub is becoming one of my favourite spots in Dubai. Let me set the scene for you – it’s a balmy Saturday afternoon on arrival at Flamingo Rooms and the restaurant is flowing with people, enjoying birthdays, baby showers or like me, catching up with my maid-of-honour-to-be over a delicious lunch and a glass of South African champagne. Having only been back a week from Cape Town, it was the perfect spot to dissipate any holiday blues, and with the sun shining outside, we picked a seat by the bay windows.  There are SO many things to love about this spot! Natasha’s (the owner) signature attention to detail is prevalent in every aspect of the …

SISTERS BEAUTY LOUNGE, JBR

by doodle diaries @ Doodle Diaries DXB

After a busy few weeks, there is no better way to indulge in a little R&R than spending a few hours at a spa or salon. With an endless amount of options in Dubai, choosing the spot to spend your quiet hours can be challenging – however, I feel like I might have just found the solution to this puzzling problem. With 6 branches pampering women in prime locations across Dubai and Abu Dhabi, Sisters Beauty Lounge’s newest salon at Jumeirah Beach Residences in Dubai is by far my favourite spot to chill to date! The stunning branch is quaint and cosy and is conveniently located just a hop, skip, and a jump away from the bustling beachfront of The Walk. From the private mani/pedi pods complete with Apple TV (YES TO NETFLIX!), speakers systems and TVs, to the hair-styling area with hair-washing stations, and gorgeous private treatment rooms – everything is sleek and stylish, decked out with artwork by Cate Parr. With a range of treatments to choose from, the salon offers its signature …

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...

STK, RIXOS PREMIUM JBR

by doodle diaries @ Doodle Diaries DXB

Living in a city that never sleeps definitely has its advantages – one clear fact being that it’s quickly becoming home to some of the world’s most celebrated restaurants, the latest being the international steakhouse favourite, STK. With venues in London, Vegas, and Ibiza, the international STK franchises have built up quite the reputation, merging incredible steak and a fine-dining-meets-party atmosphere. Boosting many celebrity clientele across the world, the chic interiors of STK have seen many familiar faces over the years including the likes of Adam Sandler, Hailey Baldwin and Courtney Cox. Located just off The Walk, JBR, at the all-new Rixos Premium Dubai, we arrived at 7.30 on a Wednesday night to a relatively busy venue, with people propped up at the bar and others tucking into juicy steaks on the raised platform. With a chic vibe, upmarket interiors and a trendy New York edge, the restaurant features a 220-seat capacity. Twisting an industrial-chic warehouse style with the glitz and glam of Dubai flair, the restaurant uses a muted palette of textures in a trendy décor. The …

Coffee Wonderland at Shanghai’s Starbucks Reserve

Coffee Wonderland at Shanghai’s Starbucks Reserve

by eatprayjade @ eatprayjade

Shanghai’s very own Starbucks Reserve finally opened this past week, and lines are out the door to get into this coffee wonderland. I do find myself intrigued by Starbucks’ unique locations around the world but this time especially, I was enamored by Shanghai’s Starbucks Reserve experience. “The complete and total commitment to the immersive experience of coffee craft” It was indeed an experience to visit, especially since Starbucks Reserve in Shanghai paired up with Alibaba to create an integrative augmented reality (AR) experience through the Taobao APP. Each step of the coffee roasting process can be seen through AR. Even better, it was amazing to listen & watch the overhead ‘Symphony’ pipes transfer roasted coffee beans to the silos. Every time the beans passed through, it sent a satisfying jingle (and a wave of applause) throughout the floor. So what was my first impression? Jam packed, beautifully designed, and full of holiday cheer. I will admit I don’t drink Starbucks often in Shanghai, as I normally opt for local coffee shops. However, the Starbucks Reserve Roastery is definitely …

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. The interior is simple and cozy with several tables and a long bar. Guests can choose to either drink their coffee indoors or take it to go. They are especially known for sourcing their single-origin coffee beans via fair-trade directly, and obtaining highly regarded CoE (Cup of Excellence) beans as well. As one of the top independent roasters they participate in various coffee-related events in Korea, and top baristas...

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...

Subscribe: [Ho Chi Minh City] A store which piqued my interest while I was researching for Vietnamese street food was The Lunch Lady, which came up as one of the common search results. Many bestowed her with the title of “legendary” street food vendor in Ho Chi Minh. (adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); The Lunch Lady (known as Nguyen Thi Thanh) propelled to fame after being featured on No Reservations. It is a food and travel programme hosted by American chef and TV personality, Anthony Bourdian. The store has since then been patronized by many other food influencers from various countries and garnered them a wide following of international visitor ship. (I looked around and noticed a few more tables with foreigners. Her specialty is noodle soup and interestingly, she has a daily rotating menu which serves only one type of noodle soup every day. Seven days in a week, she can whip up seven kinds of noodle soup such as Bun Thai, Bun Mam and Banh Canh Cua. Totally unheard of to me, and the most common Pho is not even on her menu. I wondered would the idea work in SG if I sell Bak Chor Mee Soup on Mondays, Wanton Mee Soup on Tuesdays, Hae Mee Soup on Wednesdays and etc. The amount of logistics and ingredients to buy! I visited the store on a Friday, and the noodle soup of the day was Bun Bo Hue, which translates to Spicy Vietnamese Beef Noodle Soup (VND 40k, SGD$2.40). The bowl of noodle soup felt visually intimidating at first with its bright orange hue, which resembled chilli oil from Mala pot. However, I took my first mouthful but it was nothing like that. I didn’t even found it spicy. A case of being... Continue Reading

I’ve always wanted to write a 36 hours itinerary so as the Japanese say when asked for a recommendation, here are my オススメ (o-su-su-me). Friday 8 a.m. Breakfast at 進々堂 Shinshindo Nothing is more comforting than the smell of melty butter and coffee brewing in the morning. Whipping up some of the freshest breads in town, Shinshindo Teramachi makes for a great breakfast stop. The original Shinshindo was founded in 1930 and is an iconic Kyoto institution located across from Kyoto University campus. Like many great cafes around the world, Shinshindo was a place for students and activists to congregate for political and social debates throughout the decades. The founder of Shinshindo, Hitoshi Tsuzuki, wanted to provide authentic French breads that were made fresh every day and his grandson operates the boulangerie chain in that spirit today. 11 a.m. Visit Ippodo Honten for some tea leaves and omiyage …

I’m not a big steak eater per se so I don’t typically get too excited about new steakhouses opening in Shanghai, but after reading about the Wagyu steak sandwiches on the lunch menu at 1515 West, I […]

A Brunch Affair at the Commune Social

A Brunch Affair at the Commune Social

by eatprayjade @ eatprayjade

The Commune Social is my current go-to spot in Shanghai. I love their beautifully-curated brunch menu and the restaurant’s desserts are simply to die for. Plus, it’s located in a stunning space designed by famed Shanghai-based architects Neri & Hu. Good food and a trendy vibe? Be still my heart. For brunch, the set menu is 188RMB for 3 dishes of your choice. Plates are brought out tapas style and great for sharing. I like that you can add additional plates for 68RMB, which is overall a steal for the quality of food you get. I’ve been wanting to share this restaurant for a while now because a lot of readers visiting Shanghai have asked me what are some of my favorite spots. The team behind Commune Social (led by Chef Jason Atherton with Kim+Scott Melvin) are incredibly talented and I genuinely love how well crafted each dish is. The Commune Social doesn’t take reservations, so queues on the weekend can be 1hour+. If you don’t like waiting, either go early on weekends or visit for their …

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...

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.

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...

THE ATLANTIC, SOUK AL BAHAR DUBAI

by doodle diaries @ Doodle Diaries DXB

I have long wanted to try the new restaurant that now occupies the space where Mango Tree once sat and with the new year in full swing, we finally found a Friday to indulge in a ‘traditional Dubai night’ – an evening spent watching the fountains, browsing Souk Al Bahar and having a delicious dinner (instead of your standard day-time brunch). The new-comer (which has probably been open nearly a year now), The Atlantic Dubai is the first international outpost of the flagship restaurant in Melbourne helmed by dynamic culinary duo Nick Mahlook and Sam Hocking, renowned for their culinary flair. Located in the heart of downtown Dubai, The Atlantic Dubai is set against the backdrop of the beautiful Burj Khalifa, and situated along the Souk Al Bahar’s extensive waterfront promenade overlooking the majestic Dubai fountains – it is probably the best views of the fountains you will get (unless you stand on the promenade, which let’s be honest, is no fun without a drink!). Whilst Mango Tree looked a bit tired, the new The Atlantic …

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...

Seasonal Vegetarian Fine Dining at Fu He Hui 福和慧

Seasonal Vegetarian Fine Dining at Fu He Hui 福和慧

by eatprayjade @ eatprayjade

Michelin-starred 福和慧 Fu He Hui is a gem in Shanghai’s fine dining scene. For lunch and dinner, you can select from four different vegetarian prix fixe menus (ranging 380RMB-780RMB), including a seasonal special. For first timers, I would recommend trying the ‘classic’ Fu He Hui menu. From decor to food, Fu He Hui is a gourmand’s oasis in the center of Shanghai city. Come with the expectation that you’ll pay a premium for your meal and prepared to be impressed. *I dined with a party of 4 so the below pictures are a mix of the classic 780 RMB menu and the 580 RMB menu. My dream plate of amuse-bouches. Left is 百叶包, a tofu pouch full of 马兰头, a really fragrant vegetable known as Indian Kalimeris. In the middle is 糖醋“排骨”, classic sweet and sour “pork.” In this case, pork was substituted with king oyster mushrooms wrapped around burdock roots. Lastly, on the right is marinated tofu shaped into a traditional bottle gourd shape. I adored this soup, the consommé had really deep flavors and was an absolute feast for the eyes. Look at …

EATS OF THE WEEK

by doodle diaries @ Doodle Diaries DXB

Galvin Dubai, CityWalk: Created by the Michelin-starred chef brothers Chris and Jeff Galvin, Galvin Dubai is located in the vibrant The Square, City Walk, an area of town that is constantly soaring to new highs – if you haven’t been already, make this a mission! The opening of this elegant and social restaurant and lounge represents the brothers’ first venture outside the UK after the successful opening of Demoiselle by Galvin earlier this year, also at City Walk. Inspiration has been drawn from a commitment to ‘Best of British’, infused with a Mediterranean Basin flair; an evocative array of Italian, Southern French and North African ‘flavours of the sun’ themes which are apparent through the food, wine, interiors and even the water. Believe me when I say you’ll instantly fall in love when you walk through the doors – there is something about the cosy interiors that urges you to dig into some hearty food accompanied by copious amounts of red wine. The interiors are on the dark side but trust me, it works. The emerald green …
