10 Ways to fill your belly, on a Subang Jaya Food Trail

So every weekend, it’s customary to go find some place new (to us anyway), to go for good food. A foodie trail if you like. And since Subang Jaya is so foreign to me, Cumi decided we would go there, on a food hunt. We found at least 10 tasty dishes we liked, on this […]

Karon Beach Square – contemporary dining on Karon Beach Phuket

I have to say, that Phuket itself has never felt like an island at all to me. I mean, the place is huge and it bustles with so much activity, it feels more like a city – actually the biggest island in Thailand and dubbed the ‘pearl of the Andaman’, Phuket is surrounded by the […]

The Art of Gelato .. at Carpigiani Gelato University,Italy

My first lesson in Gelato is a firm ticking off, by one of the locals of Bologna – it ain’t ice cream, so call it what it is. Gelato. OK, point taken! Gelato it is.

Notte Rosa in Rimini, Emilia Romagna

When someone mentions Rimini, it’s usually associated quickly with the vision of jam-packed beaches, hedonistic nightclubs and party place mostly. In 1843, the first bathing establishments took root next to the Adriatic and then beach huts gradually morphed into a megaresort, which in turn sprouted a big nightclub scene in the 1990s.

For the month of July (till the 31st) let this genteel eel specialist, Executive Chef Ricky Kamiishi, decide what’s best to serve up specially for the unagi promotion at Iketeru – be it Unaijyu-style, grilled and basted with a sweet sauce or Nagoya-style […]

Making Tortellini & Tortelloni at Le Sfogline, Bologna

My second week in Bologna, and I’m really getting into the swing of La Dolce Vita. Explore, Eat, Exercise, Repeat. All my favourite ‘e’s, performed religiously each day in Bologna, not necessarily in that order. I even enrolled myself in a couple of cooking classes. Because you see, in Bologna, this is the done thing – […]

Proof’s in the Barrel – Balsamic Vinegar @ Giuseppe Giusti, Modena Italy

I am currently in Bologna Italy, in the region of Emilia-Romagna, and one thing I noticed so far, is that the Italians love to eat. They eat well, they eat often and they certainly eat huge portions. After a mere 7 days, my Asian stomach is just getting used to it.. almost. prosciutto di parma, […]
