A Non-Pilgrim’s Visit to Santiago de Compostela

When I told everyone that we came back from glorious Santiago de Compostela, the inevitable questions was: How many weeks did it take you to walk? A true pilgrim might have taken a 5-week expedition from Saint-Jean-Pied-de-Port beyond the French…

Zamora – Medieval Citadel on the Duero

Rome was not built in a day. Likewise to the Spanish, no se ganó Zamora en una hora — Zamora was not conquered in an hour. As renowned as Ancient Rome is for its monumental buildings, Zamora is just as…

Avila and its Famous Rib Steak

It was a déjà vu moment when I had my first glimpse of Spain’s most impressive medieval walled city, and I say this respectfully of Avila’s uniqueness and grandeur, and furthermore, its renowned rib steak. Once the battlefront between Christian…

Healthy Soba IKI at One Raffles Place in Singapore

I’m not sure of the background of these guys (1 Raffles Place #04-47, 6438-6022), but it seems that they make their soba by hand and even cut it to order. I was happy with what I had above, with everything…

Divine Chicken Pot by Noodle Panda at Wisma Atria

I told you that jigongbao is getting popular. This stall, Haoziwei Jigongbao, has a couple of outlets, one of which is up at the Food Republic at Wisma Atria (435 Orchard Road #04-02 stall 17). Being in a food court…

Yi Zun Noodle on Joo Chiat Road in Singapore

I finally made it out to Yi Zun tonight (60 Joo Chiat Road #01-08, 6909-9287), and it was much better than Salar. They got nearly everything in that bowl right, from the crisp and salty (and slightly peppery) broth to…

Trying Chongqing Jigongbao at Chicken Pot Again

It’s literally been more than a decade since I last ate at Shanghai’s Chicken Pot, which has since spread to several outlets in Singapore. The reason why I came tonight though was because it was only recently that I realized…

Some Bites from Lorong 7 Toa Payoh, Singapore

We were in Toa Payoh this morning and figured that it’d be a good time to try Hokkien Man’s Hokkien mee (19 Lorong 7 Toa Payoh #01-264, 8791-1585)). It’s run by a former Les Amis chef who takes pre-orders by…

Trying Out the “Donki Pot” from Don Don Donki

I saw this at Don Don Donki and thought it was fascinating enough to try. Basically, it’s a bunch of chopped veggies (mostly cabbage, but some mushrooms and carrots were in there too) shoved into a bowl. The instructions said…

The Pork Teppan Rice from IPPUDO Raffles City

IPPUDO opened a new outlet at Raffles City (252 North Bridge Road #B1-61), and they had a few things unique to this outlet, like shaka shaka fries, as well as this teppan rice above. Yes, it was reminiscent of Pepper Lunch,…

BreadTalk Has Doubled Down on its Mala Twists

Whoa, BreadTalk is now using ghost peppers for its Mala Twists. Plus, there is an “Extra Spicy” version on the right with even more chili peppers on it. Yes, there was a noticeable difference, but they were both just as…

Salar Ramen in Little India, Singapore

To be clear, this was not Japanese ramen, but instead Chinese lamian. More specifically, it was halal Chinese, like Shejianjian, Xibu Mahua, and the now defunct Mazilu. And it’s located behind Mustafa, on the former grounds of another halal Chinese…

Yong Huat Hokkien Mee in Katong, Singapore

I scrambled down to this old school stall at Alibabar The Hawker Bar today, not only because it was supposed to be good, but also because this is the last weekend before the couple retires (125 East Coast Road, 9630-1370)….

Korea Slow Trip – Pilgrimage to Hanwoo Beef at Majang Meat Market

This post documents our pilgrimage to the capital of Hanwoo beef, a wholesale wet market hidden in a residential district of Seoul and responsible for feeding 10 million Seoulites’ insatiable consumption of everything from bulgogi to ujoktang. If you’re looking…

Skirt & Dirt at Tiong Bahru Market in Singapore

I’m not sure how obvious it is in the photo above, but there is a gigantic ring of grilled cheese overflowing off the edges of the patty. And that “skirt” is where this stall’s name comes from (30 Seng Poh…
