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...

Secret House – Authentic Home-Cooked Vietnamese Food In A Secret Garden, At Ho Chi Minh City

Secret House – Authentic Home-Cooked Vietnamese Food In A Secret Garden, At Ho Chi Minh City


DanielFoodDiary.com

Subscribe: [Ho Chi Minh City] Saigon (former name of HCMC) continues to welcome new dining establishment and Secret House is one on the radar for many foodies. Within a few months of opening, it has been favourably reviewed and loved. (adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); The owner has a restaurant portfolio that is well loved, namely Mountain Retreat and Secret Garden. These are restaurants frequented by both locals and tourists looking for authentic Vietnamese food in a comfortable and rural setting, They all serve Vietnamese home cooked food, and are packed be it weekday or weekend, which says something about the quality of the restaurants they operate. Secret House is by no means different. You can expect nothing less from the artistic minds behind this restaurant. The main appeal lies in its rural decoration, where an inner courtyard has been smartly and creatively turned into an herb garden. Dark wooden furniture and old-school style tableware also add rustic charm to the dining experience. The menu is extensive, aiming for every day staples of Vietnamese cuisine. Photos are included along with English translation which makes for easy ordering. The dishes are of small portion thus great for sharing, suitable for those with a hankering for every flavour. One can start off with Guava Salad with Dried Baby Shrimp (85,000VND, SGD$5.09) that serves as a good palate cleanser. The guava provided a difference in texture as well as light sweetness to the mix without being overpowering. The right amount of bite for each piece of Deep Fried Sticky Rice (95,000VND, SGD$5.69) topped with sliced mushroom, dried pork floss and minced pork, dipped in chili sauce made another delightful appetizer. On almost every occasion that I have eaten there, this is a dish I order without fail: Fried... Continue Reading

Edinburgh Scotland Points of Interest When I used to think of Scotland, I thought of scotch, Mel Gibson’s heroic portrayal of William Wallace, Mary Queen of Scots, bagpipes, and kilts. If you’ve never been to these lush green lands before, this could also be your impression. After you arrive in Edinburgh, your mind opens up, as J.K Rowling’s must have when she spent her days at The Elephant House Tea

My Favorite Fashion Finds From All Over The World

by Zo @ Let's Just Zo

My name is Zoe Weiner, and I am addicted to foreign artist’s markets. Every time I arrive in a new city, my favorite thing to do is scope out the best places to buy local artisan goods. I’m completely obsessed with finding one-of-a-kind, handmade things that I couldn’t get anywhere else. Plus, I always feel like a really worldly ass hole when people compliment me on what I’m wearing and I get to say “Thanks! I bought it in India for $12.” More than anything, though, I love these pieces because there are stories behind them. Every time I put them on, I get to remember an adventure I had this year, which makes me love wearing them more than anything else I own. Read on for some of my favorite buys from this year, and why they’re all so special to me.   Longyi, Malaysia A “Longyi” is a traditional part of Malaysian dress, and all of the participants in our group were gifted with one when we arrived for our first month in Malaysia.

The First-Timer’s Travel Guide to Seoul, South Korea

by JB Macatulad @ Will Fly for Food: Travel + Food Guides

South Korea is booming. Over 17 million tourists visited the country in 2016, a number that will only grow as Korean pop culture continues to find its way into the global mainstream. Whether you're into K-pop, K-dramas, cosmetics, or kimchi, there is so much to be excited about in this burgeoning megacity called Seoul.

Top 5 Shopping Districts In Seoul You Must Visit For The Latest Korean Trends

Where To Eat, Drink And Work In Ho Chi Minh City - Let's Just Zo


Let's Just Zo

I love Ho Chi Minh City. After spending a month here, I feel like I could actually live in Asia in the long-term. The food is amazing, the city is clean and safe, and the ex-pat and remote working communities are strong and lively. My life in HCMC (as it will be referred to from here on out, because Ho Chi Minh City is annoying to type over and over again and, I imagine, annoying to read) looked pretty much like this: Wake up, go to work at an adorable cafe, go to 5pm Yoga at Yoga Sculpt n Shape  (which actually kind of made me like yoga), eat some sort of delicious Pho/Banh Mi situation, and then either go to bed or go back to work. I was living at a place called The Saigon Mansion, and my apartment was clean and big and I was generally just in love with my life there. It really felt like *home,* even in the short time I was there, which is a really important factor when you’re living out of a suitcase for a year. When it was time to leave HCMC, I was really sad. There were so many places in the city that …

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...

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...

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...

This is (almost) all the food we ate during our 2 weeks in South Korea. The absolute number one thing we were looking forward to in South Korea was the food. It did not disappoint. We were introduced to new dishes we had never had before, and some old dishes that we had eaten bastardized [...]

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...

48 Hours And A Whole Lotta Wine (And Hangovers) In Mendoza, Argentina

by Zo @ Let's Just Zo

Move over, Napa: Menodza is officially the best wine tasting destination in the Americas. Set against the backdrop of the Andes mountain, every picture I took during my weekend in Mendoza looked straight out of a postcard. No joke — I couldn’t put filters on my photos when I put them on Instagram because I was afraid people would think they were fake. I spent two glorious days wine tasting in the Uco Valley (and one equally as amazing day laying out at the pool at the Park Hyatt Mendoza) and can now honestly say that I’m a Malbec aficionado. The wine was so good, that the first time we ordered a bottle of cheap red after the trip, one of my friends declared that she “couldn’t possibly drink it” because her tastebuds had been spoiled. (lol.) Here, a breakdown of everything I did, ate and most importantly, drank during a weekend trip to Mendoza. Bottoms up, everyone! Where We Stayed Hostel Alamo We knew we wouldn’t be spending a whole lot of time in our accommodations (and figured the time we were going to be there, we’d be drunk and PTFO), so we decided to stay at an affordable hostel in the center […]

10 NEW Restaurants Singapore January 2018 – Hawaiian Pancakes, German Burgers, And Korean Grill Meats

Crystal Jade La Mian Xiao Long Bao Ngee Ann City #B2-36A, 391 Orchard Rd, Singapore 238873 (Orchard MRT) Tel: +65 6733 3229 Opening Hours: 11:00am – 10:00pm Daily NEW Outlet At Ngee Ann City B2 Great to have Crystal Jade La Mian Xiao Long Bao back at Ngee Ann City, which is a constant favourite for family meals. 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. Crystal Jade La Mian Xiao Long Bao (Ngee Ann City) Food Exchange Novotel Singapore On Stevens, Orchard District, 28 Stevens Road, #01-01, Singapore 257878 Tel: +65 6491 6100 Impressive International Buffet At Novotel Singapore on Stevens The international buffet restaurant is located on the 2nd storey of the new hotel located in the prestigious Stevens Road neighbourhood. Ready for some fresh sashimi and seafood, hot cooking stations serving up Eggs Benedict, Risotto, Foie Gras, and BBQ and Grill?

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...

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...

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...

11 Things Full-Time Travel Has Made Me Thankful For

by Zo @ Let's Just Zo

For most people, celebrating Thanksgiving away from home is weird and depressing. There’s no family, no football and no turkey, and considering I’m currently in South America, it’s 100 degrees outside and there is ne’er a brown leaf in sight. But for me, it’s made me take pause and make me realize just how lucky I am to have the opportunity to spend this holiday so far away from my family (even though I love them, and don’t even mind the fact that my mom burns the turkey almost every year). Living and traveling full time has changed my perspective on a lot of things, and made me realize just how much I have in my life that I have to be grateful for. I’ve never had to worry about having a roof over my head or enough food on the table, let alone that I’m able to live out I am so, so grateful for this entire experience, something that I am fully aware is “once in a lifetime,” and that most people don’t get to spend an entire year living and working around the world. I’m also so, so blessed to have a family (and friends) who have been […]

What I Learned After 10+ Hours In A Chilean Hospital

by Zo @ Let's Just Zo

Getting sick while you’re traveling is more than just an inconvenience — it can mean the difference between getting to have a once in a lifetime experience and, well, not getting to have a once in a lifetime experience. Which is why when I woke up on Saturday morning with a sharp pain in my stomach, I literally booted and rallied, popped a pill that said “TAKE FOR TRAVELERS DIARRHEA” in Sharpi eon the bottle, and boarded the bus for Portillo Inca Lagoon. I spent the day in agony, fake wine-tasting (every time I ate or drank anything, the pain got worse) and posing for pictures with the fakest smile I could possibly manage. When I got on the bus for the 2.5 hour ride home, I thought I was going to die. Assuming it was just a bad bout of food poisoning, I went straight to bed when I got home and set an 8am alarm to get up and get ready to go on a 3-day beach vacation with my friends. When I got up to pack, I collapsed — I was in so much pain I could hardly stand up. “I’ll just go and then sleep it off at the AirBnB,” […]

by Peh Yiwen @ SilverKris

Thanks to Internet connectivity, rapid advancements in telecommunications technology and an increase in flexible job types (think bloggers, web developers and freelance consultants), more and more people are ditching the mundane 9-to-5 routine to live and travel abroad all while working remotely.

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...

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...

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...

Remote Year Has Made Me An Expert At Running From My Problems

by Zo @ Let's Just Zo

I know that technically, you can’t outrun your problems. I learned that the hard way when I landed in Malaysia last February and my grief over losing my dad didn’t miraculously disappear, and I still had no idea what I was doing with my life or why I felt so lost. Because, as they say, wherever you go, there you are… right? After last month, I’m not so sure. Because even though problems are location independent, a change of scenery can really make a difference. I spent November living in Córdoba, and — spoiler alert — I fucking hated it.  In case you haven’t heard of Córdoba (which, let’s be honest, you definitely haven’t), it’s a small college town in Argentina that’s approximately 10 hours by bus from Buenos Aires. That’s about all you need to know. I had a bad feeling about the city from the moment I arrived — my apartment smelled like mold and garbage and could tell from day one that it was going to be a snooze-fest — and things only went downhill from there. Aside from buying overpriced crop tops that looked like knockoff Limited Too and going for runs in a park littered with […]

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...

2017 Was The Most Insane Year Of My Life

by Zo @ Let's Just Zo

2017 was a big. fucking. year. I uprooted my entire life to have this crazy, once in a lifetime experience traveling the world with Remote Year. I’ve boarded 60 flights, 11 ferries 5 buses and one motorcycle to travel to 18 countries and 45 cities spanning five continents (Antartica, I’m coming to you in 2018 bb). I’ve checked things off of my bucket list that I didn’t even know were on my bucket list, and have enough stories from the last 365 days to fill a lifetime. I’m going to be that annoying 95-year-old woman who’s constantly talking about “that one time when I traveled the world living and working in a different country every month with 65 likeminded individuals,” and I am totally ok with that. I’m not going to lie: Writing this post gave me a lot  of feels. Scrolling through the old pictures and realizing just how much I’ve accomplished — and how much unbelievably cool stuff I’ve gotten to do in the last year — is both pride-inducing and humbling (… I know that’s technically impossible, but I feel how I feel okurrr?). I’m a completely different person today than I was on January 1, 2017. I’ve seen so much of this […]

FLORENCE, ITALY

I Went On A 5 Day Motorcycle Trip Through Chile And It Was THE BEST

by Zo @ Let's Just Zo

When I got a message last week asking if I wanted to go on a 5-day motorcycle trip through Chile, my first thought was literally to laugh out loud. “There is no way I’m doing this,” I told my friends, who also laughed out loud at the thought of me riding through the desert on the back of someone’s motorcycle wearing an actual moto jacket, as opposed to the gold one I bought for myself in Buenos Aires. But the more I thought about it (which, in fairness, was for all of about 15 minutes), the reasons I had for not going became fewer and farther between. When else was I going to get an opportunity like this? How cool would it be to tell my grandkids that I drove through Chile on the back of a motorcycle in my 20’s? Plus, HOW COOL WOULD MY INSTAGRAM CONTENT BE?! “Fuck it,” I responded. “Let’s go.” Cut to 48 hours later (and a lot of deeply concerned texts from my mom asking how many tattoos this motorcycle driver had), and I was cruising through the Chilean desert, thinking “HOW IS THIS MY LIFE?!” Day 1 The first leg of the trip took us 3.5 […]

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,...

When the clock struck midnight, I kissed every single person within 10 feet of me, and felt so lucky to get to ring in 2018 with such a huge group of people who I love so, so much. Then we spent the rest of the night dancing on the beach, and all I could think about was how #blessed I was to get to start the year with this band of misfits, and how I never, ever wanted it to end. As the night went on (and on, and on, and on), I willed the sun not to come up because it meant that we were one day closer to Remote Year being over. To be clear, it’s not just New Year’s Eve that has me feeling this type of “I miss the present while I’m still living in it” way: This is how it’s been nonstop lately. At karaoke night in Santiago, riding on the bus on the way […]

Visit Nami Island, Gangchon Rail Park, and Petite France on a Day Tour from Seoul

Nami Island is a must-visit for anyone traveling to Seoul. Aside from being storybook beautiful, it's a curious place that's unlike anything we've ever visited. There's a child-like quality to the island reminiscent of faeries, elves, and other playful spirits. We relegate them to fantasy as adults but here, they may still exist.

36 Hours, 10,000 Pictures And SO Many Alpacas In Cusco

by Zo @ Let's Just Zo

Before living in South America, I (ignorantly) imagined the entire continent to look the way Cusco does: Full of bright colors, old buildings, people selling artisan crafts everywhere. Truth be told, I was mildly shocked to discover that Buenos Aires, Santiago and Lima were nothing like that — that in place of the “traditional” beauty I expected were fullblown cities with high-rises, McDonalds and Starbucks’ on every corner. Arriving in Cusco, though, it felt like I’d stepped back in time. The city, which was the capital of the Incan Empire from the 13th to 16th Century, is so rich with its own unique culture it’s hard to take it all in at once. The streets are filled with women in traditional Peruvian garb, many of them touting baby Alpacas or neon textiles or some other ware that’s wholly unique to the region. Frankly, it’s hard to put into words exactly how I feel about Cusco, other than the fact that it is really, really special. After visiting 50+ different cities this year, I’d go so far as to say this was one of my favorites. I spent 36 hours in Cusco adjust to the altitude prior to hiking Machu Picchu. At 11,152 ft feet, […]

My Trip To Iguazu Totally Changed My Opinion On Solo Travel

by Zo @ Let's Just Zo

I went on a solo trip earlier this year, and promptly decided that traveling alone was *not* for me. What’s the point of doing anything fun if there wasn’t anyone to share it with? Plus, how are you supposed to get any good pictures without a friend to take them for you? Lately, though, I’ve been feeling really, really overwhelmed. My month in Buenos Aires was a whirlwind, and I spent every day and night that I was living there doing something, surrounded by a million people, trying to distract myself from what I was going through. I’m not exaggerating when I say I went out 30 nights in a row, and never spent more than 15-20 minutes by myself. I was also working out like a crazy person, and sleeping 3-4 hours every night. It was exactly what I needed at the time, and I’m really grateful that I got to experience the city in the way that I did, but it was a *lot.* So this month, I’ve decided to take some *me* time to reflect. As it turns out, though, self reflection isn’t all that easy when you’re constantly surrounded by 65 people. So, I booked a flight to […]
