Honored to be Nominated for Best Culinary Travel Blog in Saveur's 1st Annual Best Food Blog Awards

Honored to be Nominated for Best Culinary Travel Blog in Saveur’s 1st Annual Best Food Blog Awards

Hey all, I woke up Tuesday morning and began my normal routine… Facebook, email, check the site’s traffic for the previous day. Thought to myself it was odd there was so much traffic coming from Saveur magazine. I wondered if they linked to an article of ours? Clicked...
Exceptional Modern European Dining at Stiller's, Shanghai

Exceptional Modern European Dining at Stiller’s, Shanghai

When traveling I will eat out more frequently and choose larger meals than I might normally. I don’t know if it’s because of the website or some silly notion I have that because I’m traveling I have to pack in all I can on every trip instead of...
Laid Back Outdoor Dining at Dempsey Hill - Contemporary Melting Pot and Bar, Singapore

Laid Back Outdoor Dining at Dempsey Hill – Contemporary Melting Pot and Bar, Singapore

It’s safe to say I’m not the biggest fan of Dempsey Hill. On my better meals at the former army barracks location I’ve simply been underwhelmed… on others I’ve felt outright ripped off. What was once an unique escape in Singapore has become a “destination”… meaning the now...
Great Cheap Thai Dining Near Pantip Plaza - Mama's, Bangkok

Great Cheap Thai Dining Near Pantip Plaza – Mama’s, Bangkok

If you ever find yourself shopping for bootlegs computer accessories at Pantip Plaza in Bangkok, do yourself a favor and skip out on the foreigner friendly fast food chains and S&P (I’m not knocking S&P) found on the ground level. Instead walk across the street to Soi Som...
Mussels, Belgian Beers and All You Can Eat "Frites" on the Quay - Brussels Sprouts Singapore

Mussels, Belgian Beers and All You Can Eat “Frites” on the Quay – Brussels Sprouts Singapore

I’d walked past Brussels Sprouts many times on my way to Epicurious or other places on the Quay in Singapore. I thought it was possibly a vegetarian restaurant. It always seemed busy, a good sign in Singapore, but for some reason I never visited. Thankfully some friends of...
Enjoying Life on the Streets of Vietnam - Fresh Bia Hoi and Smoking with Locals

Enjoying Life on the Streets of Vietnam – Fresh Bia Hoi and Smoking with Locals

Ah Bia Hoi. No trip to Northern Vietnam is complete without at least a couple glasses of the stuff. Forget Saigon, 333, or any of the other local beers. Look instead for a small, street-side shop selling locally brewed versions of this light drink.
On the Hunt for Best Burger in Singapore - Relish by Wild Rocket

On the Hunt for Best Burger in Singapore – Relish by Wild Rocket

It would be an understatement to say that I was excited to try Relish. I’ve been on an epic odyssey a search for my favorite burger in Singapore since arriving. Here was a whole restaurant devoted solely to the glorious hamburger in all its incarnations… not only that,...
Romantic 3-Course Italian Meal for Valentines Day

Romantic 3-Course Italian Meal for Valentines Day

“Fa cosi caldo qui o e la tua presenza?” For those of you who don’t know, I’ll be entering a full-time culinary diploma program starting in April. I’m using my remaining months to continue to eat at great restaurants, travel, and take all the short-term cooking courses I...
Epicurean Concept of the Week - The Degustation or Tasting Menu

Epicurean Concept of the Week – The Degustation or Tasting Menu

Hey all, These days you can’t enter an aspiring to be or established fine dining restaurant and not run across either a degustation or tasting menu. What are these menus? Why are they popping up all over the place? Should you care? Should you order one? Answers as...
T8, Xintiandi - Best International Restaurant in Shanghai?

T8, Xintiandi – Best International Restaurant in Shanghai?

When traveling in Shanghai, it can be easy to stay with the tried, true… and close by. The Bund is a safety area for foreigners. Everyone knows where it is and how to get there. Even the name is easy to pronounce. Much more exotic sounding, yet just...
Nougatine by Jean Georges - Casual Fine Dining on the Bund, Shanghai

Nougatine by Jean Georges – Casual Fine Dining on the Bund, Shanghai

Fine dining has some how become synonymous with epic, bank account reducing gastronomic menus. While these are great (and sometimes life changing) you’re probably not going to want them every night of the week. Most nights you just want great food, reasonably priced and if there is great...
Epicurean Concept of the Week – Sushi Etiquette

Epicurean Concept of the Week – Sushi Etiquette

Hey all, I am a HUGE sushi fan. I’ve made my pilgrimage to the sushi mecca (Tsukiji fish market) and returned a changed man. I’m deeper in love with sushi… to the detriment of my ability to enjoy budget buffet grade sushi. But I recently found out I’ve...
