Biking in the Bangkok Jungle

Biking in the Bangkok Jungle

I never go on group tours, I hate having others show me around, and I can’t stand being spoon-fed culture. So what am I doing perched atop a borrowed bike with a group of European tourist zipping along the busy streets of Bangkok?
The Chairman - A Must Try Cantonese Meal in Hong Kong

The Chairman – A Must Try Cantonese Meal in Hong Kong

Chinese food. Of all the foods of the world I’ve tasted, I have to admit that Chinese was the one I’ve enjoyed least. I ate plenty of it growing up… but what we shovel onto plates at 5$ buffets in Abilene, TX is worlds away from anything authentic...

Breakfast Burritos from My Favorite Hometown Spot – La Popular in Abilene, Texas

Hey Yall, Thought I’d write about something a bit different for ya today. Was resting up this Sunday thinking about my upcoming Christmas visit to see my family in the Texas. I only have around a week, which for my town is actually perfect…. there’s not much going...

Great Chart Visually Guides You Through the Various Styles of Beer

Wow, I want this poster. If I had a pub, drinking room, pool room, or any room at all that regularly featuring drinking I’d have this up. Not only is it a beautiful design, but I love the breakdowns and quick visually summaries of the different families and...
Many in Singapore's Favorite Burger - Bar Bar Black Sheep

Many in Singapore’s Favorite Burger – Bar Bar Black Sheep

A while back I did a prelude to a full fledged, Singapore-wide burger review long-promised but woefully still in the “research” stages (my excuse to continue eating tons and tons of burgers). I opened it up in comments and in questions to my friends, and was overwhelmed by...
Raw Kitchen Bar - The Best Casual Fine Dining Restaurant in Singapore?

Raw Kitchen Bar – The Best Casual Fine Dining Restaurant in Singapore?

I’ve held off writing about this place for a while now. One reason is that I lost the notes from my first visit detailing the names of dishes The other reason is that as much as I think this place deserves customers, money and a slight bit of...
Coast at 1 Twenty Six a Different East Coast Park Dining Experience

Coast at 1 Twenty Six a Different East Coast Park Dining Experience

I don’t know why it’s taken me so long to venture out for a meal in East Coast Park. Maybe it’s because an area with a “skate through” McDonalds (that’s right there’s actually a separate line for roller bladers here) just doesn’t seem like my kind of place....
An All Day Lovely Breakfast - Wild Honey Singapore

An All Day Lovely Breakfast – Wild Honey Singapore

I love breakfast and brunch. Some of my favorite foods of all times are breakfast dishes (or at least feature an egg somewhere). I’ve often dreamed of finishing culinary school and opening up a breakfast place… the only thing holding me back being a strong desire to sleep...

Hey all, It’s no secret that we love Kamalaya here – a wonderful combo of relaxing space, great doctors, and inventive food. We’ve previously featured our personal experiences cooking with Kai, but now thanks to the internet you can have a virtual class with Kai yourself. In the...
Epicurean Gear – New West Knife Works

Epicurean Gear – New West Knife Works

Knives are personal things for chefs. Not only do we (I’m just a few months into cooking school and saying we LOL) use them a lot (for me third only to the wooden spoon and little metal tasting spoon), but knives also kind of give us our personality...
Cakes, Burgers, Eggs, and More - Brunch at Spruce Singapore

Cakes, Burgers, Eggs, and More – Brunch at Spruce Singapore

We really liked out dinner at Spruce. So we were excited to see they offer brunch… and not just your normal “let’s try and do a brunch to drum up sales/get rid of old product” brunch. The menu at Spruce looked to be a proper, well-thought out brunch....
Charming Little Steak Frites Restaurant on Club Street - Les Bouchons Singapore

Charming Little Steak Frites Restaurant on Club Street – Les Bouchons Singapore

It’s safe to say there’s a bit of animosity in Texas towards the French. I have no idea why or how it started, but some folks, particularly Texas males, find the whole concept of France… too French. Thankfully I’ve left home and experienced the wonderful culinary traditions of...
