Taro Milk Tea

We made milk tea before and it was the red bean flavour this time we will be doing taro milk tea which my wife and daughter had requested for quite some time now. Like before this is more of a trial recipe because the real thing that is sold in...

Spabok

Like most dishes in the Philippines each region has its own unique way of preparing their dishes that is why you have many varieties of sinigang, adobo and kakanin. Pancit is nothing different hence you have the likes of Tuguegarao’s Pancit Batil Patong, Isabelas’ Pancit Cabagan, Lucban’s Pancit Habab, Bicol’s...

Apero Food and Wine (Auckland CBD, New Zealand)

I discovered a hidden gem, it’s an amazing restaurant, small and located in a place you won’t expect, especially for someone that delivers amazing simple but impeccable quality food. In their site it says this is a place to enjoy good food, good wine and good company and we surely...

Seafood Doria

The first time I had this dish was in Hong Kong, I thought it was a Hong Kong dish like the Baked Pork Chop rice until recently when I saw this dish sold popularly in Japan when we had our vacation there a couple of years ago. Hong Kong love...

Ima Cuisine (Auckland CBD, New Zealand)

Palestinian and Jewish cuisine is one of those cuisines I don’t really try a lot, not that I don’t like it but it’s quite rare to find restaurants that offer this fare. Luckily Auckland, this little big city has options for it and one of them is Ima Cuisine. Located...

Hot Sliced Fish and Vegetable Soup

Airline Food – Cathay Pacific 2019

I think I mentioned last year this airline was our most used airline in most of our personal trips, I guess I had used them for more than 40 times since the early 2000’s. They have competitive rates; the planes are clean, and the service is good, and the food...

Rellenong Bangus

I have been dying to make this for the longest time, but I can’t find that much time to make it until now. Making Rellenong Bangus is quite labour intensive specially if you live outside the Philippines where you cannot tell your fishmonger to prepare your bangus relleno style. Back...

Din Tai Fung Silvercord (Hong Kong)

After our vacation in Europe our last destination back to Auckland New Zealand was in Hong Kong, we had almost one whole day to spare before boarding our connecting flight in the evening. Eight hours is not a lot of time for Hong Kong as there are many things to...
