The beautiful thing about high tea’s, are that they really make you feel like you’re living the high life. And in such a gorgeous environment as The Lounge, at KL Hilton, how can you feel anything less than glorious. And if like me, you find yourself preferring to stifle those half-past-noon hunger pangs with some nuts, […]
CCFoodtravel talks to Executive Sous Chef, Pichet Kitkha, of Movenpick Karon Phuket, to find out what his plans are for the establishment, in terms of F&B developments.. 1. Hi Chef Pichet, so can you tell us why you wanted to be a chef? I wanted to become a chef because being a chef has […]
There are few things I like better than good wine, and good food. And usually when it all comes together, along with some fine company, on a sunny Friday afternoon.. well it all, pretty much sets a fine tone for the weekend. Nope, not much to complain about here.
Can’t imagine that I’ve been driving past Impiana Hotel all these years, and never stepping foot inside. I mean, I’m pretty familiar with the surrounding area but just never saw a need to visit the place. Luckily enough, a call from Carol, changed all this, and I found myself at Cedar on 15 one balmy […]
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 […]

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.
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. Despite the interesting history, […]
Leaving Mt Fuji with a heavy heart, we departed from Kawaguchiko Station, by bus to Shinjuku bus terminal in Tokyo, arriving a day before the Tokyo Marathon. This journey was around 2.5 hours long, and costs us ¥3500 for two. Ah Tokyo. Finally we had arrived! From shanty yakitori bars, neon lit kinky girly bars […]
My first encounter with the Lambrusco red wine from northern Italy.. bright, ruby-hued, food-friendly, fragrant, fruity, and slightly sparkling (in Italian, frizzante), delightfully tasty! Lambrusco is the name of both the red wine grape and the wine made from it – one of the oldest wine grapes in the world. Anyway, this region the wine […]
