Everything We Ate in South Korea

by IFOTC @ Itchy Feet on the Cheap

Hann Khao Soi in Ari area will be a favorite by many khao soi lovers

by Champagne @ Streetside Bangkok

The post Hann Khao Soi in Ari area will be a favorite by many khao soi lovers appeared first on Streetside Bangkok.

Hann Khao Soi serves a bowl of Khao Soi that will be loved by many. Especially by those searching for a creamy bowl. It is one of the best spots in Bangkok, even if it is a tad to creamy for those searching the authentic version. A bowl of Khao Soi, the mustard greens and charlotte onion It’s a hard time criticizing them for serving a slightly too creamy bowl as that is what many guests want, especially tourists. But the creaminess means more fat and that is easily covering up on those dry spices used to make this dish. A parallel can be what many vendors do when serving yellow curry crab, they use too much cream and by that hiding the fragrant taste of the white crab meat. To much cream in the Khao Soi will overpower the stock or broth that the coconut milk (and here possible also coconut cream) is mixed with. That said, it is a very good bowl that Hann Khao Soi iputs on the table. preparing the bowl of Khao Soi at Haan Khao Soi The noodles are very good, so is the spiciness of the bowl and they avoid serving it too [...]

Stunningly good Tom Yam Pork Noodle at Zaew in Sukhumvit Soi 49

by Champagne @ Streetside Bangkok

The post Stunningly good Tom Yam Pork Noodle at Zaew in Sukhumvit Soi 49 appeared first on Streetside Bangkok.

Sometimes, when visiting a new stall or hole in the wall, I just have to close my eyes after the first spoonful, realizing the old school superiority to most new slurps or bites in town. And Zaew in 1/5 Sukhumvit Soi 49 is one of those odd spots delivering far beyond expectations. I just need to eliminate the surroundings, to concentrate on what is put in front of me. A bowl at Zaew in Soi 49 with some of the condiments in the background The broth is still swirling in my mouth, like excellent wine, I smile before I swallow. Then I start again, after adding the condiments; chili, lime juice, sugar, a few drops of fish sauce and crushed peanuts. Then another taste, this time combined with perfectly cooked noodles. I can conclude what I already knew; heavenly, once again aware of someone contributing to the good things in life. Zaew! It’s worth an exclamation mark. It’s worth a visit even if your not in the the area. The bowl at Zaew with condiments added The other visitors might have thought of me as a smiling lunatic, but it doesn’t matter.

They only serve pad thai and the chef Pranee Thanee have been consistant as long as I have visited her, meaning about 10 years. A plate of pad thai with tofu at Pad Thai Sala Daeng in Silom My first visit to Pad Thai Sala Daeng was the result of a recommendation from the photographer and food reviewer Austin Bush many years ago, and I have been here on a regular basis every since. He started to walk up some food path’s back in 2005 and I would say that food bloggers covering the streets of Bangkok is in dept to him, especially his early writings. It is a good investment for any foodie to look into his site and his suggestions for where to enjoy your next meal, even if it seems he has stopped writing any new stuff.

Pad Thai Ekkamai is a very good choice

by Champagne @ Streetside Bangkok

The post Pad Thai Ekkamai is a very good choice appeared first on Streetside Bangkok.

The big river prawns are put in front of me at Pad Thai Ekkamai. It looks delicious and obviously something different from the usual 4 small shrimps you get most places. It comes with their homemade chili, garlic and lime sauce, something you normally don’t get most places. A delightful surprise. Two river prawns in the wok at Pad Thai Ekkamai The big river prawn version served at Pad Thai Ekkamai comes with an egg wrapping, but I asked them to skip it as it often result in somewhat overcooked noodles. Might not have been the case here, but I decided to skip it. The noodles came out as they should, the bean sprout was fresh and the tamarind mixture added the tart this dish needs. It was all very well executed. Will it be on my short list of the better Pad Thai spots in town? Yes, it will. Pad Thai Ekkamai have plenty of Pad Thai versions on the menu, but also plenty of other dishes. The Tom Yam Kung looked inviting, but that will have to be for the next time. At least, judged from the Pad Thai, the cooks knows how to use the wok. What [...]

Bo.Lan in Sukhumvit Soi 53 is worth a visit

The post Bo.Lan in Sukhumvit Soi 53 is worth a visit appeared first on Streetside Bangkok.

Thai-born chef Duangporn ‘Bo’ Songvisava and Australian-born chef Dylan ‘Lan’ Jones runs the kitchen at Bo.Lan. The guide Asia’s 50 Best Restaurants, sponsored by San Pellegrino and Aqua Panna, have them on the list, and they recently got a Michelin Star. They serve delicious food with high quality ingredients and I wouldn’t hesitate a minute to call for a visit, but it isn’t one of Asia’s 50 best restaurants. On the other hand, it’s a rather good deal price wise for a «fine dining» experience. The quotes in «fine dining» is mostly referring to the one locker at the mens room where you can cue and take part in a magical number of sounds from whatever creature that is occupying the room, ranging from a cornet type of sounds created by strong pressure to the more lively giving up life by something being slaughtered inside the box. At least it gave the three of us cuing a reason to start a conversation. Bo and Lan is husband and wife and they met at Nahm in London run by David Thomson, a Michelin Star restaurant that closed some years ago. The same guy running Nahm in Bangkok. Anyway Bo and Lan have plenty [...]

Michelin Guide Bangkok 2018 – Jay Fai the Big Star

The post Michelin Guide Bangkok 2018 – Jay Fai the Big Star appeared first on Streetside Bangkok.

The most important aspect in the Michelin Guide Bangkok 2018 is that the 73 year old street food vendor Jay Fai in Maha Chai Road is awarded a star. I wrote in my 4 May article that it «would be a crime not to recognize (Raan) Jay Fai at 327 Maha Chai road a star«, and they did. The biggest surprise is that the Tourism Authority of Thailand (TAT) had a budget of 144 million bath to promote the Michelin Guide certification and they have ended up with a few stars to mostly western oriented restaurants and a few nods in the direction of street food venues. The first edition is a start, but not more than that. The guide still have a big job in front of them to be taken seriously on the street food scene. To make it even worse they have left out all the street stalls without a permanent address, despite that many of them has been in the exact same spot for decades. I presume the fight for banning street food hasn’t come to an end. And the main stream media is only reporting on the stars and recognition by the guide, keeping any critical questions [...]

The best town to spot wildlife in New Zealand

When it comes to traveling, seeing wildlife will always be one of the biggest highlights for me. In New Zealand, the native wildlife consists mostly out of birds so if you want to get a bigger wildlife fix, your best bet is to head to the ocean. The cold waters that surround New Zealand are known for its abundance of marine life, amongst others Fur seals, Sperm whales, Blue whales, Killer whales and tons of dolphins. Almost every bay even has its own variety of dolphins that look and behave completely different. In search of seeing some beautiful animals, I headed to the wildlife heaven called Kaikoura on the South Island of New Zealand. Continue Reading

Heng Choon Seng close to Khlong Toei market serves great beef noodles

by Champagne @ Streetside Bangkok

The post Heng Choon Seng close to Khlong Toei market serves great beef noodles appeared first on Streetside Bangkok.

Beef noodles can be extremely satisfying and terrible disappointing. As always, it’s about the recipe, good ingredients and a good Chef. Heng Choon Seng is delivering on all aspects. Just one great bowl of beef noodles. Heng Choon Seng is now run by the third generation and have had the Shell Shuan Shim award since 2544 according to the Thai calendar, meaning 2001 in western terms. Beef noodles with a rich broth The beef noodles really hits the spot. Also the beef noodles hotpot with different cuts of meat and offal is rich in taste. Beef balls can be a bit of a lottery in Bangkok these days as more and more vendors change to industrial products to keep prices down, but Heng Choon Seng delivers also here with homemade stuff. The interior of Heng Choon Seng on Rama IV The beef is slightly red in the center when served, a quality marker in Bangkok. It is also tender and juicy and with a real beefy taste. I suggest you order it with sen lek (thin rice noodles) noodles. They are really well cooked, the greens are fresh and the fried garlic on top completes the meal. If going for the hotpot, [...]

Sawang Noodles in 264 Si Phraya Road is something extraordinary

by Champagne @ Streetside Bangkok

The post Sawang Noodles in 264 Si Phraya Road is something extraordinary appeared first on Streetside Bangkok.

Sawang Noodles in 264 Si Phraya Road, close to MRT Sam Yan, separates itself from most others when it comes to egg noodles (bamee). They dish up a fantastic bowl of egg noodles with pork and a crab claw. I suggest you go haeng (dry) style, with the broth on the side. A 400 bath bowl at Sawang Noodles For some reason, a lot of people believe that the former Sawang Noodles in the Hua Lamphong area moved to Petchaburi road. That is as wrong as it can be. The former Hua Lamphong establishment moved to 264 Si Phraya Road, in other words not too far from it’s former address, a five minutes walk from the MRT Sam Yan station. The Phetcaburi vendor is related to the more famous Sawang Noodles now situated in Si Phraya Road, but that is as family. The owner of the original Sawang Noodles is the uncle to the woman running the Petchaburi establishment. The two families does things differently, partly because the noodles in Si Phraya road is hand pulled, while the noodles in Phetchaburi Road is machine made. It makes a big difference when it comes to texture, where it’s all about the [...]

Vietnam has become very dangerous for Chinese People - the Reasons behind

by noreply@blogger.com (marhas) @ Treasures of Vietnam

At least 21 dead and nearly 100 injured in Vietnam after riots. Crowds set fire to industrial parks they believed to belong to Chinese people and hunted down workers. Read more on theguardian.com. Thursday morning a mob of thousand people stormed a giant Taiwanese steel mill in Ha Tinh province, central Vietnam.

This came two days after other mobs burned and looted foreign-owned factories in south Vietnam, believing they were Chinese-run, though many were actually Taiwanese or South Korean.

Chinese nationals have fled out of Vietnam. Cambodian Interior Ministry Spokesman Khieu Sopheak told the Anadolu Agency on Thursday that nearly 600 Chinese citizens had left Vietnam through the Bavet border crossing on Wednesday.

Anti-Chinese sentiment in Vietnam goes back to the time, when it was a Chinese colony - more than thousand years ago.

But there are more reasons for the Vietnamese people to be angry at Chinese people, as chinhdangvu.blogspot.com points out. Vietnamese are livid about China's attempt to drill for oil in waters claimed by Vietnam. But this is not the only reason. "Over the past few years there have been dozens of strikes at foreign-owned plants in Vietnam. Complaints about low pay, bad workplace conditions (poor canteen food, limits on using the toilet and so on) and bullying management have triggered disputes", writes Bill Hayton on bbc.com. These complaints have focused on plants owned by Taiwanese, Korean, Thai and Singaporean. And some factories, particularly Taiwanese-owned plants, "have been employing Chinese workers in favour of local Vietnamese".

The riots have consequences: Foxconn, the Taiwanese company that manufacturers iPhones and iPads for Apple, has shut operations in Vietnam for three days according to Financial Times. Meanwhile Samsung, which is a large investor in Vietnam, and Canon, the Japanese camera maker, said they had no plans to halt operations in the country. But Vietnam's Council of Taiwanese Chambers of Commerce has issued a warning to Chinese businesses that may be targeted in the next few days. It urged these firms to raise the Vietnamese flag over their offices and to remove or cover Chinese characters on their buildings or gates, reports South China Morning Post.

Police has detained about 1,300 people in anti-Chinese protests that have recently swept across southern and central Vietnam, a source in Vietnamese police told ITAR-TASS on Friday.

Vietnamese Prime Minister Nguyen Tan Dung sent a text message to Vietnamese cellular subscribers yesterday. He wrote Patriotic Vietnamese shouldn’t allow “bad elements” to “harm the interests and images of the country”.

Vietnam has a lot to loose if its anti-Chinese riots continue, writes Quartz. Vietnam relies heavily on foreign investment and tourism. Industrial output from foreign-owned industries has been rising, and made up 46% of the country’s overall industrial output in 2012.


Hanoi mourns turtle Cu Rua - and Vietnams Communist Party is worried

Hanoi mourns turtle Cu Rua - and Vietnams Communist Party is worried

by noreply@blogger.com (marhas) @ Treasures of Vietnam



The death of a turtle has shocked Vietnams Communist Party: The Yangtze giant softshell turtle Cu Rua was found dead in Hoan Kiem Lake in the centre of Hanoi. A legend says that the turtle - believed to be more than 100 years old - was the incarnation of a mythical creature living in the lake in the 15th Century. According to the legend Le Loi, who became emperor of Vietnam, borrowed a magical sword to fight against Vietnam's Chinese oppressors. After claiming independence, he came to the lake and returned the sword to a giant turtle in the lake. Thats how Hoan Kiem lake got its name: the Lake of the Returned Sword.

Some in the Communist Party, where a power struggle is ongoing and that started its Congress on Thursday, saw the death of Cu Rua as bad omen. Censors tried to prevent media to report the death, reported bbc.com. But the news of the death via Social Media could not be stopped.

The National Party Congress takes place every five years. Around the 12th Congress, opened on Thursday, there has been a lot of speculation about the outcome: the elections of the general secretary and the Prime Minister, the two top posts of the country. Anti-Chinese sentiments in Vietnam have grown in the past years after China’s actions in the South China Sea, where Vietnam and its larger northern neighbor both claim sovereignty over islands. The congress will end on January 28. General Secretary Nguyen Phu Trong is expected to keep his post according to aljazeera.com, "albeit for half the five-year term in an apparent compromise with his rival, Prime Minister Nguyen Tan Dung".

Royal Food at Krua O.V – Lunchtime with the Grannies

A catering company and a restaurant. How good can it possible be is a legitimate question to ask. The answer is very good. Krua O.V near the Dusit Zoo dishes up some absolutely delicious bowls of authentic Thai Food with culinary roots in Central Thailand. You won’t find many westerners here, or young people for that sake. But you find quite a number of grannies occupying the tables. In other words, quality. A little bit of everything – Khanom jeen, green curry with beef, fried catfish Grannies doesn’t go to ordinary spots. They are picky and every meal shall be good. They don’t go for an industrial based plate or something halfway if they dont have to. I say; thanks to the grannies. And when you see numbers of them it means quality, it means home made food, it means great food and sometimes outstanding. They are great preservers of quality on your plate and in your bowls. Even if the food at Krua O.V. is rooted in the culinary traditions of Central Thailand, I wouldn’t protest to hefty if you add a pinch of south into it. But when sitting down, you don’t care to much about that. You just focus [...]

After all of our travels around the world, it took much longer than expected to find my way to Mexico. I think it was simply too close to home. In the literal sense, since growing up in Southern California meant I was never more than 150 miles from the Mexican border. On top of that, […]

A Perfect Weekend in Antwerp

by Marijs @ Rooftop Antics

There is one Belgian city that holds a special spot in my heart, Antwerp. It is the Fashion and Diamond capital of Belgium and it is such an awesome city. Antwerp is all about fashion, hip new coffee bars and has an excellent nightlife. Having lived here for five years, I've spent many perfect weekends here between my 9 to 5. Therefore it's the ideal city to spend a weekend away from home.

The best time to visit most European cities is in the summer time and this is no different for Antwerp. With pop-up concepts spread all across the city and plenty of greenery, the city is lively, exciting and relaxing all at once. With Belgian's national holiday coming up on the 21st of July, I decided to create my perfect weekend in Antwerp. It was so difficult to pick and choose as there is so much more to experience. This weekend is pretty perfect as it is, but I do think you should come back one day and do the rest. I hope you enjoy it! Continue Reading

Gwangjang Market: South Korea’s Oldest Market is Filled with Incredible Food

I’ll admit, I’m a little confused about Korea’s market scene. Gwangjang Market (광장시장) is located in what I believe is the oldest market building in Korea. It opened in 1905, when it was called Dongdaemun Market, which was the name of an older market that was destroyed in the Korean War and rebuilt in 1959. [...]

A Little Hospitality… A Guest is a Gift from God

A throaty tenor danced across the inky night, joined moments later by a chorus of lighter voices. The empty footpath widened as I approached the Kartlis Deda statue. The disembodied voices echoed across the cool night. Lit in soft green, Mother Georgia towered above me. The nearby voices lifted in perfect harmony, swelling as the ethereal melody penetrated […]
