Osaka: Sutoraikuken (ストライク軒)

We were starving and it was about 8.30pm when our Shinkansen pulled into Shin-Osaka. It was a mad scramble to find a hearty ramen joint to fill our rumbly tummies and a quick search on Instagram (yes, instagram!) unearthed this gem. It has a non-descript, unassuming front which we passed by before doubling back. Pushing…

Macau: the meal that made the trip

I’ve left this in my written drafts for so long I think it’s time to finally complete and publish it… Well, Macau. Prior to this trip I had never been to Macau despite having been to Hong Kong a couple of times. This joint that Hysan brought us to was situated at the second storey…

Pictorial: LOBSTER!!!!!!!!

LOBSTER ROLL: sandwiched between buttery toasted bread, this is God’s gift to mankind. The dressing is so subtle and the roll just steals the show. There isn’t that much lobster though, and um, it’s not something I’d order if I went to B+L on my own, but since I was sharing the lobster with Pete…

Adventures with Double Chin Chay: Brighton, Dorset & London

Because my old macbook died completely on me. Because I’m using a new Macbook Air. Because I was busy backing up every single file I have/had.
