New wave sushi – Argentine style

Buenos Aires is no longer just about beef and asado. Sushi is now one of the most popular foods in Argentina, with the restaurants of Buenos Aires now inventing new combinations that are influenced by neighbouring Peru, as well as the city’s Mediterranean immigrants. From the ones I tried, there is a strong feature of […]

Western mooncakes

I’m currently in Buenos Aires, a city I haven’t visited since I took a press trip here over 5 years ago. It’s a city full of contrasts: swanky high end boutiques nestle next to shabby chic and rundown buildings. I love the fact that there’s a constant smell of smoky asado in the air, but […]

Sometimes fate can do you a favour. And she certainly did that today when the uptown line which would have taken me back to my hotel in midtown was closed for repairs. As I was forced to walk back from Spring Street up towards Union Square, I managed to find a number of foodie destinations […]

Romera is chef and physician (never thought I’d put those two together) Dr. Miguel Sanchez Romera’s eponymous restaurant. Chef Romera’s first project in the […]

Postcard from Taipei – Sweet Dreams

  Last night, I was contemplating my first day in Taipei. It’s an amazing city, probably even more so if you can speak/ read Taiwanese or Mandarin, but being able to say hello and use sign language coupled with a big smile goes a long way. A great way to see some of the amazing […]

Pig in a poke

The title is a bit of a misnomer, but I promise that there is pig in this story.  And ice cream. Taiwan can be hot and steamy, so what could be more refreshing than cold, cool, refreshing ice cream? At Snow King, they offer just that.  If you look at the rather bad photo, you […]
