Skipperkroen (Copenhagen, Denmark)

This is where I had my first legit Danish food experience and its located in the heart of Nyhavn, one of those unplanned visits because the time we were here the rain poured heavily on us so we just scrambled and looked for the nearest place from where we are...

Pinakbet Manyaman

Delicious, Savoury and Tasty that’s what “manyaman” means and it is used in this dish as this is believed to be the superior version of Pinakbet. Like the traditional pinakbet it used the usual tropical vegetables like squash, snake beans, okra, eggplant, tomatoes and bitter gourd but instead of cooking...

Shake Out (North Shore City, New Zealand)

Have I mentioned before New Zealand burgers are the best in the world? I may be wrong but trying burgers in 34 different countries does mean something. From gourmet and fast food varieties, even the cheapo ones I gave them all a shot, while I haven’t tried the burgers from...

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.

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

Sliced Fish Soup is a common Chinese soup dish, its known for its easy and quick preparation as well as its simple flavours. It is a good dish on its own but like I said the original dish tastes simple, what would you expect with just a mixture of fish,...

Warek Warek

One of my favourite Filipino provincial cuisine from the Ilocanos, the extensive use of weird unknown vegetables and offal cuts might not appease everyone, but this cuisine just know how to make them really delicious. One of those dishes is this Warek Warek, made with pork ears and fatty pork...
