Nightmare buying a 3D printer kit.

by @ Thai Visa Daily Digest

Just sharing my experience with buying a 3D printer kit from China. I started with Lazada as I have purchased many small items with great success. Found a nice kit from a seller in China and placed the order on Nov. 4 hoping to receive by my son's birthday on the 23, got a confirmation call from Lazada because item was 9000 baht, on Nov. 20 called Lazada to check on delivery and I was told item never left China and I should reorder, placed order again and next day was notified that item was shipped, great maybe a Christmas present. Called Lazada on December 10 to check on progress and was told that there was a problem with shipping and I should order from a different seller. I found a nicer kit that cost more (14,000) and placed the order. Jan 2. I called Lazada to check , sorry problem with logistics, may never arrive, if item is eventually delivered I can refuse. So totally disgusted with Lazada I decided to try Ali Express, found a nice kit and placed order $260 US and better than the ones I previously ordered, next day email that item is shipped via TNT , downloaded their app to track, 3 days later it shows item arrived in Thailand, great, 3 days later still in Bangkok, tried to contact TNT got a number in America, called that night and it was Fed ex, the lady explained that Fed ex had acquired TNT and got me the number for TNT Thailand. Called to inquire about the package and was told that they tried to call me but had the wrong number, gave email address for them to send documents that had to be filled out. About 10 minutes later email arrived with documents and instructions, all documents were in Thai and had to be filled out in Thai, and provide copies of passport pages and I must send them my original passport, I had my wife explain what the documents were and they listed a lot of extra charges not even including customs charges, next day I was informed that since it was a 3D printer kit, I had to get an import license from the government. At this point I had had enough with this and I contacted the seller and informed them that I was going to refuse the shipment and would be willing to pay for return shipping up to 50 US. Seller said they would contact TNT for more info. Next day I received a message from the seller saying that the cost was over 500 US to return, could I work with TNT to clear package, I decided to try again, emailed TNT and asked for a detailed list of charges up to this point, 500 baht for delivery, storage charges of 62.50 baht per kilogram per day (package was 10 kilos). Another 500 baht customs charge and whatever import tax was charged, and I had to get the import license myself. At this point the charges were already more than the printer, so I told them to return it. I was just informed that they could not return the package and it had to be destroyed, I said ok go ahead. That's my nightmare. I hope someone gets something out of this.

Purist Patisserie – Exquisite Entremet Cakes Found In the Heartlands. Hidden Gem At Kovan

by admin @ DanielFoodDiary.com

It was quite a journey to locate Purist Patisserie, for it was smack right in the middle of a Kovan private housing estate, with no direct train or bus services. Situated at the end of shop houses of The Promenade @ Pelikat, it may be easy to overlook the shop if not for its bright pink interior and rose gold chandelier which caught my attention. Also note its rather limited opening hours, from Fridays to Sundays noon to 6pm. Not the most ideal location to set up a patisserie, but that does not deters Patissier Joanne from pursuing her dreams and setting up a place of her own to showcase her creations. Joanne’s forte lies in French entremet, which her meticulous crafting skills can be observed from the exquisiteness and aesthetic details of every entremet. But when it comes to taste evaluation, it is usually based on Patissiers’ concept as well as individuals’ preference due to the complexity and various components that go into the dessert. I took a liking to the Cebu Sunrise [$8] which consisted of coconut, mango and jasmine rice. The light coconut mousse was well complemented with sweet mango gelatin fillings and added rice cracker base for that crunch. The most aesthetical pleasing award would go to Fleur ($8), layered with thin waffle biscuit base, raspberry mousse and white chocolate. It was further topped with freeze-dried fruits, popping spheres and edible flowers for elevated appealing factor. I also liked how various components blended well to give an overall tangy note. While I usually love matcha desserts, the Zen Garden ($8) slightly fell short of my expectation. Layered with matcha, black sesame and yuzu, I found the citrus flavor of yuzu slightly overwhelming and outshone the other two components. For alcohol lovers, go for the Whiskey Bar...

Moc Quan – Authentic Tasting Pho & Banh Mi

by admin @ Food – Vietnamese – DanielFoodDiary.com

There are many pho-tastic Vietnamese shops sprouting out in Singapore, as though it is the next fad after Japanese ramen. Few Vietnamese restaurants seem to be as dedicated as Moc Quan though, where baguettes for the banh mi are baked fresh daily, and owner Jeff Koh hand-carries fresh ingredients (about 100kg every 2 weeks) from Vietnam to Singapore. Which is why they close for a day or two occasionally each month. Correct me if I am wrong, many Vietnamese restaurants in Singapore are overly-commercialised losing its authenticity, while the authentic ones lack the comforting ambience. Moc Quan, somehow manages to strike a balance between the two. ‘Moc’ means simple, ‘Quan’ means restaurant, so Moc Quan just means simple restaurant. Jeff designed Moc Quan to be a Vietnamese ‘Zi Char’ type of place, and therefore items such as Thit Kho ($7) – pork cooked with tangy spicy caramel sauce in claypot, Luoi Vit ($7) – duck tongue braised in garlic basil sauce and Dau Hu Chien Xa ($5) – deep fried tofu with garlic and lemon grass are available. There was a weird slight pungent smell when the braised pork arrived, a tad oily, but put the meat into the mouth and you would forgive all of these. It actually reminded me of street food in Ho Chi Minh, like those served around Ben Thanh Market. Their Mixed Beef Pho ($9.50) was superb, generous in vegetables, herbs, meat and meat balls, in a light yet tasty broth cooked with beef bones, brisket and spices. A tad oily with MSG though, but I am willing to overlook that. The best item was indeed the Banh Mi. I had the Bo Bit Tet ($6.50) which came with marinated sliced beef and egg. The baguette was crisp on the outside, with a fluffy chewy...

Pho.Vn – Flavourful Pho Broth With No MSG Added, A Gem For CBD Workers

by admin @ Food – Vietnamese – DanielFoodDiary.com

The jovial ladies over at A Juicery highly recommended their neighbours next door. ”Best pho ever. And you must have their spring rolls.” They also let me know a little secret that the chef behind Pho.Vn used to be from the popular Mrs Pho, though this piece of information goes unverified. Pho.Vn is a fuss-free casual Vietnamese restaurant that specialise both the popular streets food of the Southern and Northern parts of Vietnam. Some of its specialty includes Special Beef Combo Pho ($9.90), Nam Vang Noodle ($9.90), Broken Rice with Pork Chop and Steamed Ham ($8.90), Stir-fry Cockles with garlic ($6.90), and Fried or Fresh Spring Rolls ($3.90). The dessert of Green Bean Paste ($3.90) is also popular, and sometimes sells out early. The chef is said to be very particular with the freshness of the ingredient, such that she will go to the market to buy all the fresh beef instead frozen meats from suppliers. All the soup bases are cooked for 6 to 8 hours, with “strictly no MSG added”. For starters, I had the Fresh Spring Rolls ($3.90 for 2 pieces) and Fried Chicken Wings with Fish Sauce ($3.90 for 2 pieces). The former was described by my dining partner as ”very ordinary”, though I enjoyed the freshness and crunch. The Fried Chicken Wings were calorie-worthy, deliciously marinated and juicy. Borrowing a tagline, those were finger-licking good. As for the greatest surprise, it had to be the Special Beef Combo Pho’s soup ($8.90). While it looked deceptively light, the savoury broth was packed with flavours and I just couldn’t help slurping spoon by spoon. So good that the sauces seemed unnecessary. The Pho Noodles used were slippery smooth, fresh-tasting with a good bite. Prices are considered inexpensive, and I am glad to have found a worthy Pho...

Chen San Ding 陳三鼎青蛙鮮奶 – Best Bubble Milk Drink In Taipei, Near Gongguan Night Market

by admin @ DanielFoodDiary.com

[Taipei] Chen San Ding 陳三鼎青蛙鮮奶 has been widely reviewed to be the best bubble milk drink in Taipei. It is located near Gonguan Night Market, an area where the university students typically hang out. What? Not 50嵐, Chun Shui Tang 春水堂, ShareTea, 丸作 which all have more swanky shops and long list of beverages. While Chen San Ding is widely known to serve “bubble tea”, there is no tea in any of its offerings. The signature drink is called 青蛙撞奶, directly transported to “frog knocking against the milk”. No frogs are harmed in the process, as the boba (tapioca pearls) used are thought to resemble frog’s eggs. What you get is a cup of boba pearls, caramel, cold milk, with choice of ice. All drinks are affordable priced at TWD40, which works out to be SGD$1.80. This is what you call cheap and good. Upon holding the cup, I couldn’t help noticing that the bottom was warm while the top layer was cold. That is because the tapioca pearls are cooked on the spot in brown sugar, giving them the soft texture and lingering sweetened and caramalised taste. The pearls were indeed soft, sweet, chewy and you just couldn’t resist having more. Like having a mini-party in your mouth. It felt like a kind of stress-relieving munching on them. The milk itself was not that sweet, which made the entire cup kind of balanced. Other drinks such as Ai Yu Glass Jelly, Brown Sugar Glass Jelly, Lemon with Pearls, Green Bean with Pearls are available, all priced at TWD40. While you cannot choose your sugar level, you can have an option of with or without ice. I went early in the morning, and was faced with a queue of about 5 to 10 people. But it quickly got longer, though...

Stunningly good Tom Yam Pork Noodle at Zaew in Sukhumvit Soi 49

Sometimes, when visiting a new stall or hole in the wall, I just have to close my eyes after the first spoonful, realizing the old school superiority to most new slurps or bites in town. And Zaew in 1/5 Sukhumvit Soi 49 is one of those odd spots delivering far beyond expectations. I just need to eliminate the surroundings, to concentrate on what is put in front of me. A bowl at Zaew in Soi 49 with some of the condiments in the background The broth is still swirling in my mouth, like excellent wine, I smile before I swallow. Then I start again, after adding the condiments; chili, lime juice, sugar, a few drops of fish sauce and crushed peanuts. Then another taste, this time combined with perfectly cooked noodles. I can conclude what I already knew; heavenly, once again aware of someone contributing to the good things in life. Zaew! It’s worth an exclamation mark. It’s worth a visit even if your not in the the area. The bowl at Zaew with condiments added The other visitors might have thought of me as a smiling lunatic, but it doesn’t matter.

British passport for my thai born baby

by @ Thai Visa Daily Digest

Went to the brit embassy today- what an unhelpful bunch! Wanted to ask some questions and the lady behind the glass stuck me in a small room with a phone.. to use the automated embassy service. Basically a fob off So I'm posting here to ask what forms I will need to fill out for passport app for my baby girl. Is it just the standard passport application and pretend I'm the kid? The form.they gave me says i need to go to the visa application centre (but no address on the paper) Bearing in mind that I have a 'thai wife' visa and spend more time in bangkok than London. I still have a house in the UK, pay taxes there and travel back every year. Sent from my SM-G950F using Tapatalk

Mr R Drinks 雨田先生手冲饮品吧 – Instagrammable Fox And Rose Milk Tea, At Zhongxiao East Road Taipei

by admin @ DanielFoodDiary.com

[Taipei] Instagram has certainly changed consumer habits and how coffee shops keep themselves abreast in a very challenging market. Mr R Drinks 雨田先生手冲饮品吧 at Zhongxiao East Road got into the social media limelight with its very photogenic drinks of Rose Milk and Marsh Milk Tea aka Mr Fox Milk Tea. Sometimes, you get other animals on the drink. Do not discount Mr R Drinks, or “Yu Tian Xian Sheng” as another one of those just riding on the Instagram trend. The barista-owner is serious about his coffee, importing coffee beans from various parts of the world, offering hand-drips and takeaway cups. Until he was overwhelmed with orders. When I visited, the shop had a limited menu of Marsh Milk Tea (NT$180, SGD$8.10), Rose Milk, Strawberry Milk and Baileys Milk (NT$150, SGD$6.80), Apple Cider (NT$150, SGD$6.80), Umeshu Soda (NT$140, SGD$6.30), Pikachu Soda (NT$65, SGD$2.90) and… Miso Soup (NT$90, SGD$4). As this is a one-man-show operation and lines can be long, every customer is limited to buying just one cup. During peak hours, you have to get a ticket first before queuing. The barista was seen frothing and making his drinks cup by cup, so wait can be rather long. Each cup took at least 5 to 10 minutes to make. I ordered the Marsh Milk Tea (NT$180, SGD$8.10) only because I was intrigued at the cute fox on the drink. Like how it got there? However, I was slightly disappointed when he handed me a hot frothy cup of milk tea on one hand, a fox on the other enclosed in a plastic packaging, and told me to put it on myself. I see. There wasn’t any 3D latte art involved. For the Rose Milk (NT$150, SGD$6.80) drink though, he helped to carefully place the rose ‘biscuit’ made of egg white...

Wakanui Grill Dining – Steakhouse Using Meats From New Zealand And Cooking Techniques Of Japan, At Marina One

by admin @ DanielFoodDiary.com

On the 4th level of the rather futuristic looking (like off a Hollywood set) of Marina One lies two glass capsules. One of them contains Wakanui Grill Dining, an 86-seater restaurant which features steak and lamb from New Zealand. Wakanui, a New Zealand term meaning “to canoe over the land of plenty”’ is a grill restaurant concept that showcases the best available meats from the country. Its first outlet opened in Tokyo in 2011, and its success soon meant the opening of its second outlet there, focusing on lamb chops. Therefore, you could also find some Japanese influences in the menu over in Singapore’s outlet. The stars and the essence of the restaurant are therefore the New Zealand Ocean Beef and Wakanui Spring Lamb, which are grilled over Japan-sourced Binchotan charcoal in the centrally-placed, open kitchen. Starters included Neck Clam Soup ($12), Steamed Green Lip New Zealand Mussels ($22), Hot Smoked Salmon ($24), Seasonal Hassun ($32), Kikorangi Blue Cheese Caesar ($22) and Green Salad ($16) I was recommended by the service manager the Wakanui Spring Lamb Chop ($8) as the starter, and it turned out to be quite exceptional. The lamb had intense flavour and retained its natural juiciness, without the usual gaminess lamb would have. In fact, this would count as one of the most tender lamb chops I ever had. The Wakanui Spring Lamb are raised for approximately six months on the lush and highly nutritious spring pastures, with meat then aged for around four weeks until reaching its peak flavour. This process would ensure that the optimum flavour and texture of the lamb can be enjoyed year-round. In terms of the Ocean Beef, there were choices of 21 Days Dry-aged Bone-in-Ribeye ($199 for 1000g), Ribeye Cut ($79 for 350g, $109 for 500g), or Sirloin ($72 for 350g,...

Student-designed Thai robot makes bomb disarming safer

by @ Thai Visa Daily Digest

Student-designed Thai robot makes bomb disarming safer By Chalinee Thirasupa The Nation The inspection and disposal of suspected bombs will soon be safer, and the risk to officers disarming explosives reduced, thanks to a Thai robotic innovation. Several prototypes of the “explosive ordnance disposal man portable intelligent robot” were handed over to the Defence Technology Institute (DTI) on Friday during a Bangkok event showcasing defence innovations to mark the DTI’s 10th anniversary. The prototypes were presented to DTI director-general Air Chief Marshal Preecha Pradabmook by Udomkiat Nontakaew, dean of the Faculty of Engineering at King Mongkut’s University of Technology North Bangkok (KMUTNB). They were developed from a rescue robot by a KMUTNB student team, which had won the First Place and the Best in Class Mobility awards from the World Robocup Rescue 2016 held in Leipzig, Germany, for real use in industry and country defence as per the Thailand 4.0 policy. The “EOD Man Portable Intelligent Robot”, with parts made in Thailand, is 48 centimetres long, 43cm wide (including track wheels) and 20cm high. It can travel on flat ground at a top speed of 1 metre per second, climb a slope with a 45-degree angle and pull a 15-kilogram object. Its wireless remote control radius is 150 metres and it is equipped for better object inspection with a front camera, a back camera and a high-angle camera as well as those attached to its “gripper” robotic arms, which can lift up to a 5kg weight. It can perform a task continuously at one hour before requiring recharging. The robot is set to inspect a suspected bomb and then shoot a high-pressure water gun to dispose of the explosive.

It’s not difficult to point to Pad Thai Sala Daeng in the Silom ara as one of the absolute best plates of Pad Thai in the city of angels. It’s also a personal favorite. They only serve pad thai and the chef Pranee Thanee have been consistant as long as I have visited her, meaning about 10 years. A plate of pad thai with tofu at Pad Thai Sala Daeng in Silom My first visit to Pad Thai Sala Daeng was the result of a recommendation from the photographer and food reviewer Austin Bush many years ago, and I have been here on a regular basis every since. He started to walk up some food path’s back in 2005 and I would say that food bloggers covering the streets of Bangkok is in dept to him, especially his early writings. It is a good investment for any foodie to look into his site and his suggestions for where to enjoy your next meal. Pad Thai Sala Daeng does most things right. The woman in front use a wok and also stronger heat than those using the big rounded iron dish that many Pad Thai vendors use today, as many of them also [...]

Sugar Miss – Popular Instagrammable Marble Cube Cake And Marble Cheese Cake At Taipei

by admin @ DanielFoodDiary.com

[Taipei] One of Taipei’s most instagrammable dessert café of late has to be Sugar Miss, with photos of their famed Marble Cube Cake trending in several social media feeds (at least the Chinese ones). The Marble Cube Cakes come with varied fillings of matcha, raspberry and taro, available in very limited quantities. Each is priced about NT$240 – 265 (SGD$10.80 – SGD$11.90), considered on the higher side for Taiwan, though Singaporeans should be used to these prices for cakes. Do note there is a minimum expenditure of NT$200 required for each customer, which should be easily met as long as you get a drink. Reservations are recommended, as the café can get very popular during the weekends. As I arrived about 2pm, there were just 2 Marble Cube Cake left. The décor looked rather “Lady M” – all clean, white with marbled tables, and ironically Lady M Taipei is just located a short distance away with a moderately long queue. The entire vibes felt rather ‘cold’ though, without the extreme friendliness you see at other Taipei café places. Other offerings included the best-selling Marble Cheese Cake (NT$190 per slice, SGD$8.50), and Mille Crepe Cakes with flavours of Matcha Milk, Earl Grey, Valrhona Chocolate, Taro and Seasonal Fruit (NT$180 – 230, SGD$8.00 – 10.30). The Marble Cube Cake was certainly a good-looker, different from other conventional cakes, placed on a marbled plate on white table. This café certainly knows about how to get good lighting for optimal photos. Unfortunately, taste wise, it wasn’t the most impressive. It was OKAY. While the top molten layer looked melty, it was solidified and didn’t add much taste wise. Beneath was a chiffon layer and raspberry fillings that didn’t quite flow at all. It was probably just this cake, as I have seen other versions...

Saigon Lotus – Satisfying Vietnamese Pho at Marina’s Square Dining Edition

by admin @ Food – Vietnamese – DanielFoodDiary.com

Seems like Vietnamese cuisine in creeping into popularity in Singapore, with Nam Nam Noodle Bar and shops at Joo Chiat such as Long Phung leading the pack. Need more pho? In a manner of months, more and more small outlets such as Saigon Lotus (Marina Square), Wrap & Roll (The Star & Ion Orchard), So Pho (JEM), Sen Bar & Restaurant (Geylang Road), Pho Hanoi (Serangoon North Ave 1), Saigon Vietnamese Delicacy (Geylang Road) are sprouting all over the island. I needed dinner at Marina Square’s Dining Edition, and was ‘attracted’ to a gaudy orange, yellow, red, and yellow colour-schemed Saigon Lotus, opened by a Vietnamese-Australian owner who has been in Singapore for 4 years. (Okay, another reason why I chose there was because the other restaurants were crowded and this was empty.) Compared with some of the more contemporary snazzier looking counterparts, Saigon Lotus’s décor, menu and waitresses’ uniform all had this rather olden back-to-the-past take, and does feel I am transported back to Ho Chi Minh city. The set meal of 1 entrée, a bowl of noodles and drink at $18.30 nett is rather wallet-friendly considering this is within a shopping mall. Traditional Vietnamese drip coffee, yes! I was not expecting much due to some previous disappointments at local Vietnamese restaurants, but Saigon Lotus’s Sliced Beef Pho was a generous portion of gratifying comforting bowl of soup noodles that could almost match up to those I tried at Vietnam. The beef remained tender and not over-cooked, and the broth was light and satisfying with an authentic touch. The pho is not the best, but good enough for me when I am not fussy. Other than pho, Saigon Lotus sells a range of other types of home-style noodles that may not be as commonly known here such as the...

Military 'Not Ruling Out' Abuse Of Dead Cadet By Teeranai Charuvastra, Staff Reporter Cadet Pakapong Tanyakan poses for a photo with his parents on Aug. 16 in Nakhon Nayok province. Image: Sukanya Tanyakan / Facebook BANGKOK — Military investigators have yet to rule out the possibility that cadet Pakapong Tanyakan might have died due to abuse by his commanding officers, a spokesman said Friday. While an internal inquiry established that the 19-year-old cadet died of heart failure at an academy in October, armed forces spokesman Nothapol Boonngam said investigators are haven’t closed the case following a Tuesday meeting between army reps and Pakapong’s family.

Pad Thai Mae Am

The post Pad Thai Mae Am appeared first on Streetside Bangkok.

Many considers Pad Thai Mae Am close to the Khlong Toei Market one of the cities best choices if you’re in for a plate of Pad Thai. I limit my self to say it is a good choice and I wouldn’t hesitate to sit down again at Mae Am. Pad Thai Mae Am Mae Am is good old school, and that is meant as a honor. Firstly, she use the good old wok and she knows how to use it. Otherwise the evaporation process will not work well and you end up with some overcooked and soggy noodles and some under-cooked noodles. The most common pan used for Pad Thai is the big round iron cast pan, always used for making Hoy Tod (oyster/mussels omelet). The vendors serving both Hoy Tod and Pad Thai, as it is ideal for the evaporating process. An advantage with the wok is that it is easier to get a more smoky flavor. Secondly, at Mae Am the noodles are pre-seasoned with a tamarind sauce, palm sugar and fish sauce, but also shrimp fat. It’s a very delicate combination.

Banh Mi Hoa Ma – Best Banh Mi In Ho Chi Minh? Crispy Vietnamese Baguette Stall Opens Only Till 10AM

by admin @ Food – Vietnamese – DanielFoodDiary.com

[Ho Chi Minh] Due to the strong influence from French Colonial times, Banh Mi which is also known as Vietnamese Baguette has then been passed down and evolved. It is now the iconic identity of Vietnam’s local food which can be found on almost every street in Saigon. While I would usually think twice when it comes to street food, Banh Mi Hoa Ma was highly recommended by a friend who loves to travel to Vietnam. It also received many positive reviews online. Many also claimed that this is one of the best Banh Mi in Ho Chi Minh. A humble shop which lacks in its own space, many of the locals would usually just come here for takeaways. Due to its blooming business, the owner has then expanded (illegally?) their seating space along the roadside. People would then sit on stools and dine on low tables, while breathing in exhaust fumes from motorcycles zoomed by. *cough cough* For first-hand experience dining like a Vietnamese local, this would be the place to visit. Ordering was easy as there were only two items on the menu; Banh Mi Kep Thit & Banh Mi Op La. Banh Mi Kep Thit (VND 30k, SGD$1.80) is the usual kind of Banh Mi which we would find in Singapore. Baguette with Pâté (pork liver) and butter spread, stuffed with pork and chicken ham as well as pickled vegetables, spring onions and chilli. While they are just simple ingredients, the combination of thick cuts of meaty ham and refreshing pickled vegetables turned out to be quite a heartening meal for breakfast. Interesting to note, I found Vietnamese baguette lighter and airier with crispy exterior. So much so I could finish the whole Banh Mi on my own without feeling too full. Another dish served here is...

Hann Khao Soi in Ari area will be a favorite by many khao soi lovers

by Champagne @ Streetside Bangkok

The post Hann Khao Soi in Ari area will be a favorite by many khao soi lovers appeared first on Streetside Bangkok.

Hann Khao Soi serves a bowl of Khao Soi that will be loved by many. Especially by those searching for a creamy bowl. It is one of the best spots in Bangkok, even if it is a tad to creamy for those searching the authentic version. A bowl of Khao Soi, the mustard greens and charlotte onion It’s a hard time criticizing them for serving a slightly too creamy bowl as that is what many guests want, especially tourists. But the creaminess means more fat and that is easily covering up on those dry spices used to make this dish. A parallel can be what many vendors do when serving yellow curry crab, they use too much cream and by that hiding the fragrant taste of the white crab meat. To much cream in the Khao Soi will overpower the stock or broth that the coconut milk (and here possible also coconut cream) is mixed with. That said, it is a very good bowl that Hann Khao Soi iputs on the table. preparing the bowl of Khao Soi at Haan Khao Soi The noodles are very good, so is the spiciness of the bowl and they avoid serving it too [...]

Coffee Libre 커피리브레 – Hidden Award-Winning Cafe At Myeongdong Cathedral, Seoul

by admin @ DanielFoodDiary.com

[Seoul] When I needed a good coffee recommendation, food blogger Daniel (yeah, same name) from Seoul Eats took me to Coffee Libre 커피리브레at Hong Dae near Hongik University Station. The thing that makes Coffee Libre stand out from other coffee shops in the city is the fact that the owners are dedicated to coffee. This is from sourcing the best coffee beans in the world, and choosing to have different brewing methods. Established in 2012, Coffee Libre 커피리브레 is an independent coffee shop in Seoul with branches in Yeonnam-dong, Yeongdeung-po, Shinsegae, and Myeongdong. The name of the coffee shop comes from the Spanish word “libre”, which translates to Mexican luchador wrestlers. The icon on the cup did remind me of Jack Black’s character from the Mexican-American sports comedy film Nacho Libre. Coffee Libre grinds beans for every single cup of coffee, and they have participated in dozens of coffee-related events in the country. I have been to 3 different branches of Coffee Libre. Hong Dae’s branch has more indie vibes for coffee aficionados; Time Square has a much bigger space and appeals more to the young; while Myeongdong’s outlet is a hidden spot right in the middle of a tourist hub. This small branch of Coffee Libre in Myeongdong boasts a quite unusual location, as it is situated within the Myeong-dong Cathedral complex. Yes, right in front of the famous church. The interior is simple and cozy with several tables and a long bar. Guests can choose to either drink their coffee indoors or take it to go. They are especially known for sourcing their single-origin coffee beans via fair-trade directly, and obtaining highly regarded CoE (Cup of Excellence) beans as well. As one of the top independent roasters they participate in various coffee-related events in Korea, and top baristas...

Greenpeace slams officials for failure to warn public about air pollution

by @ Thai Visa Daily Digest

Greenpeace slams officials for failure to warn public about air pollution By PRATCH RUJIVANAROM THE NATION THE AUTHORITIES have come under criticism for downplaying the real threat posed by the recent air pollution in Bangkok, and urged the installation of a timely and accurate air pollution warning system to protect the people’s health. Thailand country director for Greenpeace Southeast Asia, Tara Buakamsri, on Thursday said the Pollution Control Department (PCD) had failed to warn the public about the threat to their health from air pollution despite having real-time data on the pollution in Bangkok and other major cities – especially particulate matter with diameter of 2.5 microns or smaller (PM2.5). “We need a proper air-quality warning system in order to protect the peoples’ well being and give them a chance to protect themselves from harmful air pollution. The recent PM2.5 surge in Bangkok shows the authorities had failed to warn and protect the people’s health,” Tara said. He said Greenpeace had been campaigning to raise awareness of air pollution and PM2.5 for more than seven years, but Thai authorities had still not included PM2.5 in the national Air Quality Index (AQI) calculation as the nationwide installation of PM2.5 monitoring devices was not yet complete. He said that Thai AQI does not represent the real air quality and it deprives people the chance to get ready and prepare for poor air quality, which could cause many illnesses such as respiratory diseases and heart disease. “One of the few good things that we saw from the recent surge in Bangkok is that more people have realised the danger of PM2.5. They have more awareness about air pollution. Previously, the public and also the authorities did not have proper awareness on the threat of air pollution and PM2.5,” Tara said. However, he stated that the authorities had failed to appropriately react to the growing concern about the poor air quality in Bangkok. Instead of issuing a warning about the dangerously high PM2.5 level, and urging people to protect themselves from air pollution, they played down the severity of the issue. “It was disappointing that even though the PCD had real-time pollution information in its hands and the threat to people’s health was imminent, it chose to inform the public that the air quality level was just orange and not red – the highest air quality warning level,” he said. He also suggested that the authorities come out with a policy to promote the use of public transport and encourage people to use their private cars less, because traffic was a major source of air pollution in Bangkok and other big cities. Meanwhile, Bangkok Metropolitan Administration (BMA) Deputy Governor Suwanna Jungrungruang revealed that the BMA had initiated clean air zones with a pilot project in Pathumwan district to deter the air pollution problem, by growing more trees to purify the air and regularly cleaning the streets to reduce dust. “We acknowledge that the traffic is the main source of air pollution, but the BMA is not directly responsible for regulating traffic. So, what we can do is encourage commuters to use more public transport and regularly check their car engine to reduce emission of pollutants,” Suwanna said. “We are now undergoing major public transport system development in Bangkok. We assure that by 2029, Bangkok’s public transport system will be completed and interconnected, which can greatly reduce traffic in the streets and air pollution.” Source: http://www.nationmultimedia.com/detail/national/30337266 -- © Copyright The Nation 2018-01-27

Kazo – Taiwanese Kazu Kazu, Lava Polo Buns And ‘Sexy’ Matcha Latte Bottles, At Chinatown Point

by admin @ DanielFoodDiary.com

Taiwanese Bakery Kazo has opened at Chinatown Point (nearer Hong Lim Food Centre side), offering a selection of Polo Buns, Cream Puffs, and Kazu Kazu which are long choux pastries. The brand is supposedly popular in Taiwan, with a different name of Nichifu 日芙洋菓子 with stores in Taichung. (My Taiwanese friends have never heard of it though.) Having just returned from Taiwan, I was inevitably curious towards Kazo and its products. Offerings included Premium Ice Cream Polo ($5.50 for 2 scoops, $3.80 for 1), Hokkaido Cream Golden Lava ($3.00), Crispy Cream Puff ($1.80), Kazu Kazu ($3.50), Cheese Tart ($3.00 for original, $3.20 for chocolate or matcha) and Kazoman Beverages ($3.00 – $3.50). This is like many things trending / instagrammable all in one store. The Premium Ice Cream Polo ($5.50) could remind some of Hokkaido Ice Cream Puff, in which you could choose from Hokkaido Cream, Matcha, and Chocolate. The former boosted a more crusty puff pastry and creamier quality ice cream, but lacked of that buttery fragrance. While I wished I could eat the Polo with my hands (like how the photos featured). In reality, the ice cream would start dripping within seconds and scooping from the provided plastic box would be cleaner. I was curious how the Kazu Kazu would match up with the famous Japan’s Zaku Zaku – which by the way has opened in Taipei and ‘inspired’ many other versions. This Kazu Kazu had a firmer crusty outer layer which I did not mind, though its filling of Hokkaido cream was mild and pale in comparison. My sense is the Hokkaido Cream Golden Lava ($3.00) could land up being its most popular item, as local consumers are still fascinated by the idea of flowing lava. Mine was indeed very molten. Though I suspect some might come...

Bobii Frutii Singapore – Colourful Bubble Tea From Taiwan Opening At The Clementi Mall, 10 Jan 2018

by admin @ DanielFoodDiary.com

The Return Of The Taiwanese Bubble Tea craze in Singapore sees old players such as Gong Cha, Singapore brand LiHo and Taiwan’s PlayMade 丸作, all of them with difference in their areas of specialty. Let’s just say Gong Cha is known for their Alisan Milk Foam, LiHo for Cheese drinks (which is now everywhere) and PlayMade 丸作 for their freshly made pearls. Bobii Frutii will be opening its first store in Singapore at The Clementi Mall. I first tried Bobii Frutii 珍珠水果特調 in Taipei which attracted a crowd initially due to its distinct coloured and “Instagram-worthy” layers. Each cup is made using milk, tea and colourful pearls, with no artificial flavourings, man-made essences, creamer or preservatives. The menu in Singapore features a total of 37 drinks in a single cup size and divided into 5 different categories – Tea/Au Lait aka “served with milk” in French ($2.50 – $3.90), Ice Blended ($5.90 – $6.90), Matcha ($4.90 – $6.50), Fruit Tea ($3.90 – $5.90) and Cheese Tea, exclusive to Singapore ($4.50 – $5.90). Pearls aka bobii (Taiwanese slang for tapioca pearls) that are preservative-free come in 3 different flavours: Original ($0.60), Butterfly Pea ($0.90) and Brown Sugar ($0.90), are made in Taiwan and air-flown to Singapore to ensure freshness and consistency. One thing to note, the bobii in each cup is considerably less compared to other competitor brands out there. Apart from their aesthetically pleasing appearance, each of their signature items have funky names that made me wonder what the flavours are, so I gave up on their names and ended up ordering by colours. “Hi, can I have the blue and yellow layered drink?” “Oh, you mean Mermaid’s Tears?” “Ya, that one.” I cried. The names included Don’t Want To Work, Pandora Treasures, Childhood Memory, Green Romance, and Don’t Want...

Thang Long – Stylish Vietnamese Restaurant Near Bangkok’s Wireless Road

by admin @ Food – Vietnamese – DanielFoodDiary.com

[Bangkok, Thailand] Many of Bangkok’s restaurants score in terms of style. The same could be said for Thang Long (which is the former name for Hanoi in Vietnam). Thang Long is located at the Bangkok Wireless Road Neighbourhood, along Soi Lang Suan. While this seems like a quieter stretch of road away from the usual buzz, its hip neighbours include Asia’s Best Restaurant Gaggan (5 min walk down the road) and Wine Bridge Plus (just opposite). Refer to map below Dark wooden furnishing, water features, an outdoor seating area like a bar by the beach and loungy music would appeal to the chic and stylish crowd in Bangkok. The modern Vietnamese restaurant serves food tapas style, so expect dishes from the predictable such as pho, Viet spring rolls and vermicelli, to steam ravioli and deep fried frog legs (!). Its menu was rather confusing though, despite being artistically photographed. The food photos were on one side, while prices were printed in sections somewhere in the menu. Not intuitive enough. We had some of the standards, and liked the Minced Shrimp on Sugar Cane (215 baht) – plump in freshness, and sweetness coming through towards last few bites. The Spring Rolls came with avocado and crab stick (115 baht), which might have worked better if they had worked in if there were more of these two ingredients to make a distinctive difference to the usual. Service was at least prompt, but not the usual Thai-style earnestly. Well, I would remember Thang Long more for its décor than its food, and I don’t mean it that bad a way.

Thai-born chef Duangporn ‘Bo’ Songvisava and Australian-born chef Dylan ‘Lan’ Jones runs the kitchen at Bo.Lan. The guide Asia’s 50 Best Restaurants, sponsored by San Pellegrino and Aqua Panna, have them on the list, and they recently got a Michelin Star. They serve delicious food with high quality ingredients and I wouldn’t hesitate a minute to call for a visit, but it isn’t one of Asia’s 50 best restaurants. On the other hand, it’s a rather good deal price wise for a «fine dining» experience. The quotes in «fine dining» is mostly referring to the one locker at the mens room where you can cue and take part in a magical number of sounds from whatever creature that is occupying the room, ranging from a cornet type of sounds created by strong pressure to the more lively giving up life by something being slaughtered inside the box. At least it gave the three of us cuing a reason to start a conversation. Bo and Lan is husband and wife and they met at Nahm in London run by David Thomson, a Michelin Star restaurant that closed some years ago. The same guy running Nahm in Bangkok.

Anyone with a Foreign Currency Deposit Account?

by @ Thai Visa Daily Digest

Anyone with a Foreign Currency Deposit Account in Bangkok? Checking local bank's websites, they either seem to go with the 'big fish', make it difficult, don't pay any interest, or charge you 'an arm and a leg' for withdrawals... Would be interested in reports about such accounts (smaller sum in Euros) in Bangkok, Vientiane, or Phnom Penh, with a reliable bank.

Pre-wedding photoshoot package

by @ Thai Visa Daily Digest

Hi all, Looking to do a pre-wedding photoshoot with my girl in Bangkok. However, I'm looking online and there doesn't seem to be much available information. Looking for the complete package that comes with photographers, make up artist and dress (both guy and girl). If anybody can recommend a professional or point me in the correct location it will be greatly appreciated. If everything goes well looking to do the photoshoot hopefully by April. I personally want to avoid it in July due to the weather. Thank you for your assistance.

[Closed] Pho Hanh Delights – More Authentic Vietnamese Cuisine at Joo Chiat

by admin @ Food – Vietnamese – DanielFoodDiary.com

Down a few shops from Joo Chiat’s popular Vietnamese restaurant Long Phung is Pho Hanh Delights. The new restaurant was visibly empty, without much décor to speak out, but I wanted to give it a try. Time to support the underdogs, even though half my heart says “Why not just go Long Phung?” Pho Hanh Delights used to be Vietnam Food Hanh Delights at Telok Blangah Food Centre, forced to close due to high rentals. Lady boss cum chef Nguyen Thi Hanh honed her cooking skills in her family’s restaurant in Vietnam, subsequently moved over after marrying a Singaporean husband. The décor did look sad, with pale-looking food pictures (probably shot with a handphone) colour-photocopied and pasted along the walls. Menu was in a black plastic folder. Not the type of place to come if you are on a first date (or even subsequent dates). This may be a hang-out-with-buddies place. With that said, the food actually fared much better than expected. Moral of story: Don’t judge a restaurant by its appearance. The traditional Vietnamese Beef Combo Pho ($7.50) was such an uplifting take after trying so much commercial ones. (Some placed have completely butchered pho.) Sure, the taste and presentation might not as polished as known restaurants outside. But the stock was light yet full-flavoured. Reasonably priced and included with generous portions of beef slices, brisket and balls. Having this on a rainy day may be your best alternative for comfort pho. Again, while the stir-fried Kang Kong ($5.00) didn’t look too appealing when presented, the shoots were crunchy, seasoning particularly fragrant and tasty (may be salty for some). What I noticed that when every dish came, there was a different accompanying sauce, which helped enhance the flavours. Chicken wings which came with a saucer of salt, pepper and...

Prayuth Rehashes 'Roadmap' Vow As 2018 Election Hopes Fade By Pravit Rojanaphruk, Senior Staff Writer Junta chairman Prayuth Chan-ocha attends a summit in India on Friday. Image: ThaiGov BANGKOK — After Thursday night’s vote seemed all but certain to quash hopes of a vote this year, the leader of the ruling junta Friday seemed to play down the chance he would intervene. Speaking from India this morning, Prayuth said he would not “interfere” despite having yet been “formally informed” that last night’s vote, which delayed enactment of necessary election laws, meant voting would be postponed until 2019.

Pho Tai – This Vietnamese Restaurant From Paris Has Good Pho

by admin @ Food – Vietnamese – DanielFoodDiary.com

The first thing I noticed about Pho Tai at Capitol Piazza was its people – the owners and some of the kitchen staff (I peeked through an opening) looked well, pioneer generation. Sorry for generalising, as I was quite used to the Singapore-husband Vietnamese-wife combination seen in local restaurants. Turned out this family-owned Vietnamese restaurant had its origins from Paris. The Vietnam-born Chinese family moved to Paris during the 70s to find safety during times of war, and subsequently started Pho Tai in the city of romance. When asked if there is a difference between their Viet pho and a Parisian-influenced one, the owner said that noodles sold in Vietnam may not contain as much meat and herbs, and relied more heavily on the noodles. Also, the soup bases in Vietnam may not be as rich. To make their soup richer, premium ingredients such as beef meat, bones, and herbs are boiled for hours fresh every day. Neither industrial beef stock nor any powdered “pho” mix were used, which the owner commented that some restaurants in Singapore do use unfortunately. The signature items include Beef Steak Slices and Combination Pho ($9.90), Steamed Rice Pancake Rolls ‘Banh Cuon’ ($7.80), Fresh Spring Rolls ($4.80). Marinated Beef Vermicelli ‘Bo Bun’ ($12.80), Red beans with Coconut Milk ($6.00) and Banana and Coconut Milk ($4.30). FYI, the dessert is warm. This is one of the few Pho in Singapore that I thoroughly enjoyed – the soup looking light and clear, yet flavourful, not the type that would make you quench in thrist. Beef slices and tendon were tender, though my friend wished there were some balls of sort. Pho Tai added that they did not use beef balls because they try to minimise the usage of any kind of process food in their dishes. We...

Secret House – Authentic Home-Cooked Vietnamese Food In A Secret Garden, At Ho Chi Minh City

by admin @ Food – Vietnamese – DanielFoodDiary.com

[Ho Chi Minh City] Saigon (former name of HCMC) continues to welcome new dining establishment and Secret House is one on the radar for many foodies. Within a few months of opening, it has been favourably reviewed and loved. The owner has a restaurant portfolio that is well loved, namely Mountain Retreat and Secret Garden. These are restaurants frequented by both locals and tourists looking for authentic Vietnamese food in a comfortable and rural setting, They all serve Vietnamese home cooked food, and are packed be it weekday or weekend, which says something about the quality of the restaurants they operate. Secret House is by no means different. You can expect nothing less from the artistic minds behind this restaurant. The main appeal lies in its rural decoration, where an inner courtyard has been smartly and creatively turned into an herb garden. Dark wooden furniture and old-school style tableware also add rustic charm to the dining experience. The menu is extensive, aiming for every day staples of Vietnamese cuisine. Photos are included along with English translation which makes for easy ordering. The dishes are of small portion thus great for sharing, suitable for those with a hankering for every flavour. One can start off with Guava Salad with Dried Baby Shrimp (85,000VND, SGD$5.09) that serves as a good palate cleanser. The guava provided a difference in texture as well as light sweetness to the mix without being overpowering. The right amount of bite for each piece of Deep Fried Sticky Rice (95,000VND, SGD$5.69) topped with sliced mushroom, dried pork floss and minced pork, dipped in chili sauce made another delightful appetizer. On almost every occasion that I have eaten there, this is a dish I order without fail: Fried Baby Squid with Fish Sauce (85,000VND, SGD$5.09). It left a deep...

What does a 1,000 baht a month house in Thailand look like? That’s $32 for rent

What does a 1,000 baht a month house in Thailand look like? If you have ever thought about renting a house in Thailand, your first thought will, of course, be how much is it going to cost you for rent every month? After all, Thailand is cheaper than many other places in the world, right? Yes, Thailand is much cheaper than countries like the U.S,. or regions like Europe, when it comes to renting a house, but it does depend where in Thailand you rent.

Pho Phu Vuong – One Of Ho Chi Minh City’s Best Pho + Pho ‘Dictionary’ For Easy Ordering

by admin @ Food – Vietnamese – DanielFoodDiary.com

[Ho Chi Minh City] A trip to Vietnam without having some pho would be a culinary crime. Among all Vietnamese dishes that made their way across the globe, this is arguably the most iconic dish of Vietnamese cuisine. The question is: Where to go for a bowl of pho in the land of hundreds of Pho shops, sometimes only a few meters away from each other? Phở Phú Vương started to be a humble pho stall, and grew to two shops with approximately 200 seats in total. The shop specialises in Southern-style Pho, which differs mainly from its northern counterpart in the sweetness of the broth and the condiments used to accompany your pho bowl. Pho Phu Vuong represents the typical no-frills local eatery where there is no ambience to speak of. However the place is covered in white-tiled walls, brightly lit, reasonably clean and relatively spacious as compared to other eateries in town. You come in, you order, waiters bring the food, you eat, pay and leave. At meal time when customers flow in, you certainly have to share tables with strangers. Service is no means courteous or polite one that the West is accustomed to. There are two main seating areas at this branch on Nguyen Thai Binh street, only one has the air-conditioner to help you combat the heat while slurping the tasty pho. You get to choose your pho with a range of beef cut; there is no English menu so this is a Pho dictionary for easy ordering: Tái = sliced rare beef steak Nạm = sliced beef flank Gầu = flatty flank Gân = beef tendon Vè = crunchy flank Sách = beef tripe Thịt Nhừ = minced beef Đuôi bò = ox tail A small bowl costs 55,000 VND (SGD$3.26), a big bowl...

Complaints of expensive food and drink at Bangkok airports spark visit by Thai Ombudsman

Thailand’s Office of Ombudsman will apparently be visiting Bangkok airports again after complaints of expensive food and drink prices have resurfaced against them by a large number of passengers. This comes after Airports of Thailand’s (AOT) reported an increase in the number of complaints by passengers about expensive food and drink at Suvarnabhumi Airport and Don Mueang Airport in Bangkok, and current Thai Prime Minister Prayut Chan-o-cha ordered an investigation. As someone who flies through both Suvarnabhumi and Don Mueang regularly, I have to say I agree with the complaints about exorbitantly priced food at both airports. In fact, if I

Sei Duck Noodles and Chinese Medicine

Sei Duck Noodles is a bit out of the ordinary rout, but well worth a visit. Their duck noodles or the stewed duck with five spice and Chinese Medicine broth, alternatively with rice, is delicious and will make you write down the address. They have been around for something like three decades and continues to serve quality day in and day out. It’s food with a personality. And of course, the locals now, and fills up the place quickly. Duck noodles at Sia Duck Noodles The duck noodles can be ordered dry (haeng) or with broth at Sei Duck Noodles (Also written Xia/Chia Duck Noodles). Personally I prefer the broth version here. I’m pretty sure the broth has been made with entrails to reach this level of flavors and depth. Pork balls at Sei Duck Noodles By the way, they’re pork balls with cucumbers and a dipping sauce is a very good appetizer. They do a bit extra dishes on Sunday afternoons, like dim sum, jab chai, steamed duck with rice and Chinese herbal soups like bah mer boo pith. For dessert go for their tao tung.

The post Royal Food at Krua O.V – Lunchtime with the Grannies appeared first on Streetside Bangkok.

A catering company and a restaurant. How good can it possible be is a legitimate question to ask. The answer is very good. Krua O.V near the Dusit Zoo dishes up some absolutely delicious bowls of authentic Thai Food with culinary roots in Central Thailand. You won’t find many westerners here, or young people for that sake. But you find quite a number of grannies occupying the tables. In other words, quality. A little bit of everything – Khanom jeen, green curry with beef, fried catfish Grannies doesn’t go to ordinary spots. They are picky and every meal shall be good. They don’t go for an industrial based plate or something halfway if they dont have to. I say; thanks to the grannies. And when you see numbers of them it means quality, it means home made food, it means great food and sometimes outstanding. They are great preservers of quality on your plate and in your bowls. Even if the food at Krua O.V. is rooted in the culinary traditions of Central Thailand, I wouldn’t protest to hefty if you add a pinch of south into it. But when sitting down, you don’t care to much about that. You just focus [...]

Mrs Pho House – Popular Pho Shop Opens Restaurant Serving Authentic Vietnamese Cuisine

by admin @ Food – Vietnamese – DanielFoodDiary.com

Fans of Vietnamese food would be thrilled to hear about the opening of Mrs Pho House along Rangoon Road, and you can look forward to dishes like Claypot La La and Gong Gong. Not just PHO. Established since 2014, Mrs Pho has been serving their rendition of hearty beef pho at Beach Road, which is a hot favorite among office executives nearby. This is despite the long waiting time during lunch hours, due to the limited seating capacity. Taking over the location of the defunct Grub Noodle Bar, this ‘house’ is more spacious, and makes it more conducive for bigger group dining. So why Mrs Pho HOUSE? Like inviting you to their house, their staff mentioned that they wanted to provide a comfortable dining environment which serves up various casual home-cook Vietnamese dishes, and not just limited to pho. I cannot help but to agree, as many people’s idea of Vietnamese food is limited to just Pho and Bánh mì. If you are a frequent diner with Mrs Pho, you should be aware of their other signature dish, Mrs Pho Cockles ($10.90) which is stir fried “see-hum” tossed with garlic and pork lard. Over here, the cockles are cooked in a clay pot to provide an enhanced smoky fragrance. Probably due to popularity of cockles, there is now an extended seafood menu. Additions include ‘House’ Crab ($32), Saigon Chili Prawns ($12.90), Long live ‘Gong-Gong’ ($10.90) and Love You Long Time ‘Lala’ ($10.90). The conch, or commonly known as ‘Lala’, was slowly simmered with lemongrass to give a clear subtle sweet broth. The ‘Lala’ was fresh and tender, but I preferred to drink the “zhup” (sauce) more than eating the flesh of the shellfish. The usual starters from Mrs Pho also made their appearance, such as Spring Roll ($6.90), Grilled Beef...

[Ho Chi Minh City] A store which piqued my interest while I was researching for Vietnamese street food was The Lunch Lady, which came up as one of the common search results. Many bestowed her with the title of “legendary” street food vendor in Ho Chi Minh. The Lunch Lady (known as Nguyen Thi Thanh) propelled to fame after being featured on No Reservations. It is a food and travel programme hosted by American chef and TV personality, Anthony Bourdian. The store has since then been patronized by many other food influencers from various countries and garnered them a wide following of international visitor ship. (I looked around and noticed a few more tables with foreigners. Her specialty is noodle soup and interestingly, she has a daily rotating menu which serves only one type of noodle soup every day. Seven days in a week, she can whip up seven kinds of noodle soup such as Bun Thai, Bun Mam and Banh Canh Cua. Totally unheard of to me, and the most common Pho is not even on her menu. I wondered would the idea work in SG if I sell Bak Chor Mee Soup on Mondays, Wanton Mee Soup on Tuesdays, Hae Mee Soup on Wednesdays and etc. The amount of logistics and ingredients to buy! I visited the store on a Friday, and the noodle soup of the day was Bun Bo Hue, which translates to Spicy Vietnamese Beef Noodle Soup (VND 40k, SGD$2.40). The bowl of noodle soup felt visually intimidating at first with its bright orange hue, which resembled chilli oil from Mala pot. However, I took my first mouthful but it was nothing like that. I didn’t even found it spicy. A case of being hit with confusion while trying to adapt to the foreign palate....

Saigon Alley – Vietnamese Pho and Banh Mi Restaurant, Considered A Hidden Gem

by admin @ Food – Vietnamese – DanielFoodDiary.com

Some worthy restaurants go under the radar, which is kind of a waste. I have visited Saigon Alley occasionally, a Vietnamese casual concept located in Novena Gardens, and thought it was not too bad. The menu is said to be inspired by the traditional recipes from Hanoi, featuring comforting home style Vietnamese delights inspired by the street food of Vietnam. So you can expect familiar Viet street food of Pho ($14), Banh Mi ($7 – $9), Spring Rolls ($8 – $10), and other side dishes. But no, they have not achieved ”Nam Nam” popularity status yet. The interior shouted of modern industrial, graffiti art on the wall, with lights throwing out hues of purple and red at night. Songs played are a mixture of English Top 40s (from a few years ago), and Vietnamese tear-jerkers like Cô Bé Mùa Đông. The servers hummed along, and by the way, they also did a competent job in introducing the dishes. Food wise, the emphasis is on the modern usage of fresh ingredients, and strong flavours like mint, coriander, Thai chilli, fish sauce, and many secret herbs & spices to add depth to the dishes. I suspect that most diners would find the Combination Beef Pho ($14) too light and understated in terms of the broth. But I thought that was refreshing in a different way, and allowed for other ingredients to shine through. Well, there are always chilli and fish sauce to bring out the taste – in typical Singaporean dining fashion. Both times, the server recommended the Spicy Australian Beef Noodles ($14), which would probably be a 2-3/10 in terms of spicy level. This is said to have originated from the central city of Hue, cooked with a 8-hour beef broth, using a round type of rice noodles (similar to the...

This is especially when we need to satisfy Xiao Long Bao cravings in the heart of town. In terms of food choices, the restaurant continues to specialize in Northern Chinese specialties – as its name suggest La Mian and Xiao Long Bao dumplings; along with meat and seafood dishes from around the Jiangnan region. The specialty is the Hainanese Chicken Xiao Long Bao ($6.80) which incorporates the Singapore signature dish of Hainanese Chicken Rice into their famed Chinese dumplings. To complete the experience, I would recommend dipping the dumpling into the specially made ginger paste, then let the entire piece burst in your mouth.

Tonkin Viet Noodle Bar – Pho and Banh Mi at Orchard Central

by admin @ Food – Vietnamese – DanielFoodDiary.com

Tonkin a Vietnamese Noodle Bar has opened at Orchard Central, with another two outlets at Tanjong Pagar 100AM and Clifford Centre. For fans of Viet food, you can venture down to the basement of the mall (next to Maccha House) for spring rolls, green mango salad, pho and banh mi. I wished I had better words to describe the experience, but it was okay. The Beef Combination Noodle Soup ($9.90) had rather light soup base, with consideration addition of fresh herbs and vegetables. Good for those who prefer broth that is not so heavy or robust. We also had a Banh Mi Pate Belly Pork with Vegetable ($6.90), and wished there was more slices of meat. Tonkin would rank somewhere in the middle for taste. Safe choices, nothing exciting, like that lo. But if you would happen to be at OC and need a warm bowl of noodle soup, this would be it.

Jin Feng Braised Pork Rice 金峰魯肉飯 – Popular Lu Rou Fan Eatery In Taipei

by admin @ DanielFoodDiary.com

[Taipei] Jin Feng Braised Pork Rice is a well-known eatery (at least among the locals) in Taipei that serves one of the most popular Taiwanese dishes, “Lu Rou Fan” otherwise known as Braised Pork Rice). There are several other places in the Roosevelt Road (Luosifu Lu) neighbourhood that serve braised pork rice, but this hole-in-the-wall dining spot has a reputation for being the best in town. The good news is that this place is budget-friendly with reasonably priced dishes that come in big portions. Keep in mind that there is usually a line in front of Jin Feng Braised Pork Rice, especially during lunch hours. Do not expect too much from the interior, as this place is more like casual local eatery than an actual restaurant. The tables are close to one another, and there is a chance that you will have to share a table with other guests. If you are in a hurry, you can always take your food to go. The Braised Pork Rice, priced at NT$30, NT$40, NT$50 (SGD$1.30, SGD$1.80, SGD$2.50) for their small, medium and large bowls, is definitely the signature dish here at Jin Feng in Taipei. The dish is served with a large amount of rice and topped off with a slice of bitter melon and braised pork. One thing to note is that while Singaporeans are used to bowls with loads of meat with less rice. The reverse seems to apply to many Lu Rou Fan stalls in Taiwan where there is very little meat in contrast to rice. I also noticed that other restaurants that offer this dish tend to serve it with more fat than meat, which is not the case here. The draw to me was the savoury sauce on the fluffy rice, when paired with hot soup was...

Banh Xeo 46A – Huge Vietnamese Savoury Crepe. Some Say Best in Ho Chi Minh

by admin @ Food – Vietnamese – DanielFoodDiary.com

[Ho Chi Minh] When it comes to Vietnamese food, my knowledge has been quite limited to Banh Mi (Vietnamese Baguette) and Pho (Beef Noodle Soup). Hence, it thrills me to be able to gain more insights about local Vietnamese cuisine during my recent trip to Ho Chi Minh. Banh Xeo 46A, otherwise known as Banh Xeo Dinh Cong Trang (or literally the Banh Xeo store located on Dinh Cong Trang Street), specializes in serving huge Vietnamese sizzling crepe cake that comes with pork belly, shrimps and bean sprouts. The crepe looked like a huge “mee jiam kueh” (pancake) which came with generous amount of savoury ingredients. Did a google search, and this happened to be one the famous Banh Xeo in Ho Chi Minh. The Banh Xeo (VND 80k, SGD $4.80) was served together with tons of greens, and I was initially sceptical on how healthy the combination would taste. Despite the language barrier, the friendly staff then patiently guided me on the “correct way” to consume Banh Xeo. Using leafy greens as base, you would wrap the crepe together with some shrimp, pork belly, bean sprouts and mint leaves, then dip into the fish sauce chilli before consuming. The chewy texture of the crepe felt similar to some Korean Pancake but thinner, and had refreshing crunch from the bean sprouts. While they specialize in Banh Xeo, the shop also serves up a comprehensive menu of Vietnamese dishes such as Rice Vermicelli dishes, Seafood fritters and Barbequed Meat. Not forgetting iconic Vietnam side dishes such as Goi Cuon (Fresh Summer Roll) and Cha Gio (Fried Spring Roll) paired with fish sauce. (VND 75k, SGD $4.50 for 5pcs) These two side dishes are so common that it is almost available at every food stall. I tried from different places and found...

Chen Ji Intestine & Oyster Taiwanese Vermicelli Shop 陳記專業蚵仔麵線 – Possibly The Best Mee Sua In Taipei

by admin @ DanielFoodDiary.com

[Taipei] Ah Zong Mian Xian, otherwise known as Ay Chung Rice Noodles 阿宗麵線 used to be my favourite Mee Sua from Taipei. When I say “used to”, it could be as far a decade back when it was crowded, but not flooded with tourists like now. Unfortunately, the standard and consistency was not like in the past as the store gets more commercialised. I was recommended to Chen Ji Mee Sua 陳記專業蚵仔麵線, or Chen Ji Intestine & Oyster Taiwanese Vermicelli Shop. Many call it the “Best Mee Sua in Taipei”, with “original local taste without over promoting”. Mee Sua is a Taiwanese dish that is basically a vermicelli soup included with large pork intestine or oysters. The noodles served with the soup should never fall apart or stick together. At least, this is what the general rule is. Chen Ji Mee Sua looked like an average Taiwanese food stand. No fanciful interior, just a counter where you can order food, and a couple of tables outside the shop. A large bowl大碗is priced at NT$65 (SGD$2.90), smaller bowl大碗at NT$50 (SGD$2.25), with clear vermicelli soup清麵線at NT$35 (SGD$1.60). If you like your pig’s intestines, then you would love the Mee Sua here. I found the pieces extremely soft, tender, and flavourful, and as a friend @eileen_eats_alot described, ”clean unlike some that have strong porky flavour”. I bought both large and small bowls to compare, and found the large bowl to be a lot more generous in ingredients. For the amount of oysters given, this bowl is reasonably priced. The consistency was smooth and thick without being sticky. Tip: Have it plain before adding some chilli and vinegar for more layered taste. I tried about 8 different bowls of Mee Sua in Taipei, this ranks as my top so far. In order to reach...

France urges more EU sanctions on Venezuela over 'shift to authoritarianism'

by @ Thai Visa Daily Digest

France urges more EU sanctions on Venezuela over 'shift to authoritarianism' French President Emmanuel Macron reacts with Argentina's President Mauricio Macri (not pictured) during a meeting at the Elysee Palace in Paris, France, January 26, 2018. REUTERS/Ludovic Marin/Pool PARIS (Reuters) - French President Emmanuel Macron called on Friday for further European Union sanctions on Venezuela, days after the 28-nation bloc agreed a travel ban and asset freezes on seven senior Venezuelan officials. The West accuses President Nicholas Maduro's government of violating democracy and human rights in the oil-producing nation, which is in the grip of a major economic and social crisis with millions suffering food and medicine shortages. Venezuela's pro-government Supreme Court late on Thursday excluded the opposition coalition from registering for this year's presidential election, possibly splintering Maduro's foes by pushing political parties to put forward competing candidates. "Sadly things are going in the wrong direction," Macron told a joint news conference with the visiting president of Argentina, Mauricio Macri. "We'll have to see at the European level whether we want new sanctions. I am in favour of having them... I want us to go further given the recent decisions and the shift to authoritarianism." On Monday the EU announced measures targeting people in charge of security forces accused of widespread abuses, particularly during the 2017 anti-government protests. Earlier on Friday Spain, a prominent supporter of the new EU sanctions, declared Venezuela's ambassador to Madrid 'persona non grata' following an equivalent move by the Caracas government on Thursday. Critics of the 55-year-old Maduro, who succeeded Hugo Chavez in 2013, say he has ruined a once prosperous oil economy, turned Venezuela into a dictatorship and skewed the election system to perpetuate power for his Socialist Party. Maduro's government says it is fighting a U.S.-led right-wing conspiracy determined to end socialism in Latin America, hobble Venezuela's economy, and steal its oil wealth. Macron urged other countries that have wider economic ties with Venezuela to also impose "efficient sanctions." Argentina's Macri said Maduro continued to "violate the system" despite diplomatic pressure and he called for free and transparent elections. "It's not been a democracy for a long time," said Macri. -- © Copyright Reuters 2018-01-27

Mellow Pan。メロ Singapore – 1st Japanese Melonpan Specialty Shop With Ice Cream At Our Tampines Hub

by admin @ DanielFoodDiary.com

The melonpan with ice cream, a Japanese sweet bun, reminded me of our popular local street food: Ice Cream Sandwich. The $1 Ice Cream Sandwich sold along the streets in pushcarts had always been one of Singapore’s Must-Eat items, so popular that it made into one of BuzzFeed’s listicles in 2016, which (unfortunately) went viral for the wrong reason. The Japanese melonpan (also known as melon bun) was named due to its outward appearance which resembled that of a rock melon, but in fact doesn’t taste like one traditionally. Located at the basement level of Our Tampines Hub is Singapore’s first melonpan specialty shop, offering Plain MelonPan in 2 different sizes: Small (1 for $2.60, 5 for $10) and Large (1 for $3.40, 3 for $9), MelonPan Gelato with 3 options: Small melon pan with 1 choice of flavour ($4.80), Small melon pan with 2 flavours ($6.80) and Large melon pan with 2 flavours ($7.80). Order and payment is first made at the casher before proceeding to the right for selection of gelato flavours from their wide selection on display. Interesting flavours include Avocado, Chendol, Honeycomb, Yuzu and D24 Durian, which are local and relatable. Toppings such as Sunflower seeds, Rainbow sprinkle and Peanuts are available at an additional $0.60 whereas durian toppings are priced at $2.50. I chose the Avocado and Black Sesame Gelato to go with my Large MelonPan Gelato ($7.80) that came with 2 rusks (twice-baked bread). The rusk actually acted as a “spoon” to scoop the gelato instead of licking or biting directly into it. I made the mistake of eating my “spoon” (accidentally) and ended up in a mess while licking the gelato though. The generous amount of gelato (which tasted more like ice cream with a harder texture and more solid shape) was actually...

SBCD Korean Tofu House – Korean Soontofu Restaurant Offers NEW Unagi (Jang-Eo) Dishes, Starting from $5.90

by admin @ DanielFoodDiary.com

The one Korean dish that I enjoy for the level of comfort it brings is the Soontofu, the soft tofu stew with ingredients such as seafood and vegetables in a spicy broth. “Soon” in Korean means “soft”. SBCD Korean Tofu House is one of the few Soontofu specialty restaurants in Singapore, with branches at Tanjong Pagar Centre and a newly opened outlet at Millenia Walk. The Millenia Walk branch was HUGE (at least in Singapore’s context), with spacious interior, tall ceilings, floor-to-ceiling glass windows, and open kitchen concept where you can observe the team of chefs preparing the soups. Don’t have to worry smelling like Korean stew as you walk out as the space is ventilated enough. One important highlight: At the back of the Korean restaurant is where the soft and silken tofu is made FRESH daily. The tofu you are eating is made right in the morning. The chefs from SBCD use special soybeans imported from Paju, South Korea. The area is said to be close to Korea’s Demilitarized Zone (DMZ) and contains the freshest-tasting produce due to the untouched nature. Surprise, surprise. The Korean restaurant has also introduced NEW Jang-Eo (장어) dishes – fresh water eel imported from Korea. While the Jang-Eo is popular during the hot summer days in Korea, you seldom see it in Singapore, at least not yet. The NEW menu will comprise of 4 new Jang-Eo dishes including three under the dine-in menu and one for takeaway. Here are the food items you can expect: Unagi Main on Hotplate ($19.90++, with Soju $29.80++) The Koreans love their Jang-Eo – freshwater eel marinated in novelty sauces, with savoury and delicate taste. Called the “Jangeo-gui” which literally translates to “grilled eel”, the Koreans believe that eating this dish can help improve stamina and prevent heat...

Pad Thai Ekkamai is a very good choice

The post Pad Thai Ekkamai is a very good choice appeared first on Streetside Bangkok.

The big river prawns are put in front of me at Pad Thai Ekkamai. It looks delicious and obviously something different from the usual 4 small shrimps you get most places. It comes with their homemade chili, garlic and lime sauce, something you normally don’t get most places. A delightful surprise. Two river prawns in the wok at Pad Thai Ekkamai The big river prawn version served at Pad Thai Ekkamai comes with an egg wrapping, but I asked them to skip it as it often result in somewhat overcooked noodles. Might not have been the case here, but I decided to skip it. The noodles came out as they should, the bean sprout was fresh and the tamarind mixture added the tart this dish needs. It was all very well executed. Will it be on my short list of the better Pad Thai spots in town? Yes, it will. Pad Thai Ekkamai have plenty of Pad Thai versions on the menu, but also plenty of other dishes. The Tom Yam Kung looked inviting, but that will have to be for the next time. At least, judged from the Pad Thai, the cooks knows how to use the wok. What [...]

Phuket U-turn flyover project expecting Royal Decree within 6 months

With regards to construction materials left in one lane of Thepkrasattri Rd which has fueled complaints from locals, Project Engineer Kit Sonsuwan told The Phuket News, “The contractor has been able to start some parts of the construction and preparations, specifically in the middle of the road, where the Highways Department has access to the land. “As we then encountered problems where nearly all of the land owners did not want their land to be expropriated, we had to file a request for a Royal Decree. The contractors said at first that they would remove the materials by December. But now they have requested more time until April.

Sawang Noodles in 264 Si Phraya Road is something extraordinary

by Champagne @ Streetside Bangkok

The post Sawang Noodles in 264 Si Phraya Road is something extraordinary appeared first on Streetside Bangkok.

Sawang Noodles in 264 Si Phraya Road, close to MRT Sam Yan, separates itself from most others when it comes to egg noodles (bamee). They dish up a fantastic bowl of egg noodles with pork and a crab claw. I suggest you go haeng (dry) style, with the broth on the side. A 400 bath bowl at Sawang Noodles For some reason, a lot of people believe that the former Sawang Noodles in the Hua Lamphong area moved to Petchaburi road. That is as wrong as it can be. The former Hua Lamphong establishment moved to 264 Si Phraya Road, in other words not too far from it’s former address, a five minutes walk from the MRT Sam Yan station. The Phetcaburi vendor is related to the more famous Sawang Noodles now situated in Si Phraya Road, but that is as family. The owner of the original Sawang Noodles is the uncle to the woman running the Petchaburi establishment. The two families does things differently, partly because the noodles in Si Phraya road is hand pulled, while the noodles in Phetchaburi Road is machine made. It makes a big difference when it comes to texture, where it’s all about the [...]

Comnam – Sister Restaurant of NamNam Serves Vietnamese Broken Rice

by admin @ Food – Vietnamese – DanielFoodDiary.com

The closure of patisserie Canele has paved the way for Comnam, a spinoff of Vietnamese chain Nam Nam Noodle Bar by the Les Amis group. Comnam is focused on serving Vietnamese dish Cơm tấm, where tấm refers to the broken rice grains, while cơm refers to cooked rice. Funny how broken rice which was previously meant for poorer people, and supposedly has lower fiber and nutrients, is making their way to restaurants. But, why not. Food evolves. I know there are many fans of Nam Nam. Their bowls are reasonably priced for the office crowd, but I never really thought they are that worth-while to queue. With that said, I think Chef-owner Nam Quoc Nguyen’s new take would continue to ride on its wave. The rice bowls are wallet-friendly, from $8.50 to $9.90, with GST included and no additional service charge. A Comnam bowl is a filling one, not stingy with ingredients. My Marinated Fried Pork Cutlet ($9.90) comes with chicken ham, steamed egg, tender pork, fungus, pickles with a choice of broken rice or kimchi fried brown rice (that’s weird). I thought the broken rice worked better in the soup version. The Grey Featherback Fish Balls with soft-boiled egg ($7.90) bowl reminded me of Teochew style porridge, where rice is added to soups. The grains being shorter, soaks up the soup and sauces better, and thus each spoonful and bite was quite flavourful. Plus, no MSG. The small plates may also steal some thunder from the mains. Again, all at friendly prices. I say go for the Crispy Squid ($5.50) – think deep fried calamari (I wished it was not so oily though) and Grilled Chicken Salad with roasted peanut ($5.90). Many Singaporeans generally favour noodle dishes in restaurants, going for ramen rather than dons. Similarly more should go...

Yong Kang Beef Noodles 永康牛肉麺館 – One Of The Best Taiwanese Beef Noodles In Taipei

by admin @ DanielFoodDiary.com

[Taipei] Yong Kang Beef Noodles 永康牛肉麺館 is known to be one of the best Taiwanese beef noodle joints in Taipei, well-known for its spicy soup. This two-level restaurant serves up signature Beef Noodles with tender Australian beef and chewy noodles in a flavourful broth, definitively a winner judging by the line in front of this dining establishment. (The other famous shop in the neighbourhood is 老张牛肉麵店 Lao Zhang Beef Noodles.) I went at about 10:45am and there were about 2-3 people in the line. Thinking that it should be okay if I take a stroll around the neighbourhood, I returned at 11:00am only to see about 30 – 40 people in the queue already. Many of them brought along their luggage or entire families. Lesson learnt: Come early. Yong Kang Beef Noodles was founded back in 1963 by Mr. Cheng who originally from Szechuan in China. After he finished his military duties, Mr. Cheng decided to open a small stall at Yong Kang Street and sell beef noodles. The stall became an instant hit and started to attract both locals and people from China who moved here to Taipei City. After Mr. Cheng retired in the 1970s, the place was handed over to his protégé, Mr. Luo who is the current owner. As for the interior, it has not much changed over the years. There are dozens of tables and they are usually packed with customers. You will also see the counter with a menu to choose from. There is also a tourist-friendly English and Japanese menu with photos. Most of the tables are round and can accommodate up to 6 people. If you come solo or in a pair, you are likely to be seated with other patrons. Their signature dish is the Braised Beef with Noodles in Spicy...

Texas inmate busted while reentering prison with booze, home-cooked meals: cops

by @ Thai Visa Daily Digest

An inmate who escaped from a federal prison in southeast Texas was arrested Wednesday while allegedly trying to sneak back in with snacks, alcohol, tobacco and cooked food, the Dallas Morning News reported. Jefferson County Sheriff’s Office said in a statement they had been tipped off that inmates had been sneaking out of the prison complex and reentering with contraband. Joshua Randall Hansen, 25, was spotted by sheriff’s deputies and U.S. marshals running out the back of a federal prison in Beaumont on Wednesday evening, the statement said. Hansen picked up a large duffle bag that a vehicle had dropped off at a private property adjacent to the prison, authorities said. The deputies said they arrested Hansen as he was trying to reenter the prison. The duffle bag contained three bottles of brandy, a bottle of Whisky, packages of tobacco, salty snacks, fruit, and home cooked foods like BBQ sausage and fried chicken, FOX 40 reported. Hansen, had been serving a 27-month sentence for drug-related charges. He now faces additional charges of escape and marijuana possession. Full article

Michelin Guide Bangkok 2018 – Jay Fai the Big Star

by Champagne @ Streetside Bangkok

The post Michelin Guide Bangkok 2018 – Jay Fai the Big Star appeared first on Streetside Bangkok.

The most important aspect in the Michelin Guide Bangkok 2018 is that the 73 year old street food vendor Jay Fai in Maha Chai Road is awarded a star. I wrote in my 4 May article that it «would be a crime not to recognize (Raan) Jay Fai at 327 Maha Chai road a star«, and they did. The biggest surprise is that the Tourism Authority of Thailand (TAT) had a budget of 144 million bath to promote the Michelin Guide certification and they have ended up with a few stars to mostly western oriented restaurants and a few nods in the direction of street food venues. The first edition is a start, but not more than that. The guide still have a big job in front of them to be taken seriously on the street food scene. To make it even worse they have left out all the street stalls without a permanent address, despite that many of them has been in the exact same spot for decades. I presume the fight for banning street food hasn’t come to an end. And the main stream media is only reporting on the stars and recognition by the guide, keeping any critical questions [...]

by Rachel Roobe @ Tasty Thailand

  How much does an apartment in Chiang Mai cost per month in 2018? A few days ago, I was contacted by a British friend who is selling everything he owns and moving to Chiang Mai, Thailand. One of the things he wanted to know was how much does an apartment in Chiang Mai cost per month in 2018? And was the amount of money he was budgeting for rent for his first few months in the city enough? Now, I don’t live in Chiang Mai. But, I have spent many many weeks there on trips from Bangkok, both in

I joked on instagram about the wanting to be a street food hawker at local restaurant Chua Kim Heng this past Halloween. Each day the rush of customers tensely glance over at the men wielding oversized Chinese cleavers. The cleavers are a fitting match for the serious looks the men don as the restaurant crowds, and would be equally […]
