HANOI TO HUE BY BUS

by ianandmar @ Ian and Mar

While air transport is generally inexpensive in Vietnam, land transport wins over convenience and value for money because airports are far out from the city center. Also, instead of paying for another night's accommodation, we would rather save a little bit of money by taking overnight buses or trains.

Food Review: Kimme at Amoy Street | Modern Asian Cuisine by the Team behind One-Michelin Starred Meta

Food Review: Kimme at Amoy Street | Modern Asian Cuisine by the Team behind One-Michelin Starred Meta

by theRantingPanda @ The Ranting Panda

The Place If you have been a fan of the One-Michelin Starred Meta restaurant at Keong Saik, Kimme is your answer to a relatively more casual fine-dining concept even though this sounds oxymoronic. Located at 47 Amoy Street, the two weeks old Kimme restaurant is a modern, 48-seat Asian concept which takes up the entire 3-storey shophouse. The restaurant is the brainchild of Chef Sun Kim, the chef behind Meta and is helmed by Head Chef Louis Han who has worked with Chef Sun closely the past few years. The inspiration for the restaurant’s name comes from Chef Sun Kim, where his friends used to address him Kimme affectionately. My first impression of the space is the huge slab of white marble communal table with the open kitchen behind where you can watch the chefs perform magic to the plates. The space at level one is not huge yet it feels spacious, all thanks to the clever design of using ceiling mirrors to create a bigger sense of space. If you prefer a more private space, level two is a more intimate ambience for couples and some quiet moments, whereas level three is an attic space with only one table [...]

Food Review: Kra Pow Thai Street Food at Far East Plaza | A Taste of Thailand at this Hidden Gem in Orchard!

by theRantingPanda @ The Ranting Panda

The Place Far East Plaza is a sleepy mall the past few years and we almost missed out on a good restaurant just because we have already crossed out the mall. Kra Pow Thai Street Food located at level 3 of the mall near Orchard Road is a hidden gem. The casual eatery, where “Kra Pow” means holy basil in Thai, is spacious and offers affordable Thai food. There are more than 20 dishes in its extensive menu where you make your order directly at the counter, which explains why there is no service charge and GST. The restaurant was considerably packed during our weekend visit, though the kitchen was fairly efficient and we didn’t wait too long before our food arrived. The Food The menu is so extensive that I was so tempted to try so many dishes, and my note to self is to come with a bigger group next time. I spotted the usual favourites such as tom yum soup, grilled pork collar, mango salad and sea bass on the menu but didn’t manage to try all of these dishes this time. Instead, we started with the Thai Wings (S$6.90) as we were craving for something fried [...]

Food Review: 665°F Restaurant at Andaz Singapore Hotel by Hyatt | Steakhouse with a view of Singapore Skyline at Bugis

by theRantingPanda @ The Ranting Panda

The Place One of the most gorgeous restaurant to open in 2017, 665°F Restaurant only opened its doors during the last month of the year at Andaz Singapore. Giving you the classic New York City vibe with its dark tones and high ceilings, and if you are lucky to snag one of the private rooms here, you will enjoy views of the Singapore city skyline; otherwise, you will be at the main dining hall, enjoying the open kitchen preparing your orders for the evening. A relatively small space, sitting what seems like a maximum capacity of 30, 665°F Restaurant is a modern steakhouse on level 38 of the hotel, with direct lift access from the hotel lobby. The Food The restaurant is helmed by Chef Josephine Loke, with prior experiences from Odette, Open Farm Community and Tipping Club. Although knowing this will perhaps raise your expectations too high, and this is perhaps not the most ideal – find out why at the end of the article. The starters at 665 were on point, particularly the Beef Carpaccio (S$39). The usual thin slices of raw beef, but at 665, the sliced beef are placed on stripes of celeriac – celery roots, that has the crunch [...]

Food Review: Uni Gallery by Oosterbay at The Plaza | Uni-centric Restaurant in Beach Road for Serious Uni Lovers

Food Review: Uni Gallery by Oosterbay at The Plaza | Uni-centric Restaurant in Beach Road for Serious Uni Lovers

by theRantingPanda @ The Ranting Panda

The Place It is the first Uni (Sea Urchin in Japanese) centric restaurant I am aware in Singapore. Meet Uni Gallery by Oosterbay, the one month old restaurant which as its name suggests, serves more Uni dishes than I have ever seen in Singapore. My first disclaimer is that the location of Uni Gallery by Oosterbay is really offbeat and there might be some difficulty locating it. The restaurant is located at the basement of an old building called The Plaza, which is adjacent and linked to PARKROYAL on Beach Road hotel. Take the spiral staircase from level 1 to the basement of The Plaza and you will find Uni Gallery. The modern space of Uni Gallery is a stark juxtaposition to the rest of the tenants, with fun Japanese motifs on the walls by a local artist and bright counter seatings where you could watch the chefs in action. Oosterbay is an online retailer of seafood, and in particular Japanese products, hence the relatively competitive pricing of Uni in the restaurant. The Food It’s not just all about Uni at Uni Gallery as the menu also offers other types of sashimi, sushi, grilled dishes and even oysters, though it [...]

Food Review: Uya Singapore at Wheelock Place, Orchard | New Japanese Unagi Concept to rival Man Man

Food Review: Uya Singapore at Wheelock Place, Orchard | New Japanese Unagi Concept to rival Man Man

by theRantingPanda @ The Ranting Panda

The Place Unagi is still a fairly neglected Japanese dining concept even after the huge success of Man Man Japanese Unagi Restaurant, hence when we heard that a brand new unagi concept has opened at Wheelock Place in Orchard, it aroused our interests greatly. Meet the few days old Uya Singapore, a live unagi dining concept similar to Man Man, but think of it as a more ‘atas’ version. We learnt from their staff that Uya is in fact a local collaboration with an experienced unagi distributor from Nagoya, Japan. My first impression of the dining space is the zen-ness. It does feel like I am in Japan for a few moments before reality strikes. Decked in mainly wood furnishings, there are pockets of private dining space at the sides of the restaurant where there is a squarish communal table at the middle with a tree to resemble a garden-like ambience. The Food The main highlight of Uya is its live unagi, which means you are in for a fresh treat. The source of supply for the unagi is seasonal, where we had unagi from Taiwan during our visit. There is a glass panel at the front of the restaurant [...]

Vietnamese food near Hobby Airport? Try Bun Bo Hue Co Do

Vietnamese food near Hobby Airport? Try Bun Bo Hue Co Do


Houston Chronicle

I am a spring-roll aficionado, often prowling the city in search of the tasty Asian wraps. If you are too, you really should know about Bun Bo Hue Co Do, a little restaurant near Hobby Airport. Do not be deterred by the barred windows on its unassuming strip-mall storefront. The hidden gem doesn't have a website, either. But it does have the best spring rolls I've found in Houston, bar none. The rice paper is translucent and gossamer, a rebuttal to the microwaved leather common at less meticulous establishments. The savory grilled pork within is still warm from the grill, a wonderful contrast with the coolness of the crisp greens and fresh herbs. A pair of made-to-order rolls costs just $4.

No matter where you find yourself in the world, you’re going to need to make sure that you have a reliable source of clean drinking water. Knowing how to purify water while traveling and having the appropriate tools to do so ensures that you always have clean water, and it is eco-friendly as well: no more dozens of wasted plastic bottles! We’ve found that the Survivor Filter line of water filters, including the Survivor Filter Pro, the Survivor Filter Personal Water Filter, and the Survivor Filter Collapsible Canteens, are the perfect choices for travelers who want to purify their own water conveniently, easily, and reliably. We used all three of these high-quality Survivor Filter products extensively on our travels throughout China, Mongolia, and Southeast Asia. The Survivor Filter products accompanied us to the cities of China, the temples of Myanmar, and the taiga of Mongolia, providing us clean water every step of the way. Whether out in the wilderness, or in a small village where the only available water was for purchase at our hotel at a ridiculously inflated price, our water filters kept us hydrated while saving us money and hassle.

The Place There is finally a hip dining spot in Hougang, or even in the North-East of Singapore. Meet Meat Market located at Hougang One, a casual meat concept which serves grilled meats over different types of wood on different months. The concept reminds me of Red Eye Smokehouse at Lavender, except that the space at Meat Market is more cluttered with more dining tables, with an open kitchen concept where you can actually watch all the action behind the kitchen. The interior is quite cosy and simple, decorated with industrial bulb lightings and dark wood tables with metal edges. The Food Similar to Redeye Smokehouse, you get to customise your meat platter or there is also an option to go for the default combinations. Choose a base, meat, side and sauce and prices vary based on the type of meat. The wood used to grill the meats vary on different months, which lends different flavours to the meats. The price range is quite reasonable, where an a la carte order of Chicken thigh or Fried dory fish is S$7.90, with the highest end Ribeye and Tenderloin at S$14.90. Each meat order gives you a complementary side dish like cheesy [...]

Food Review: Amo Italian Restaurant at Hong Kong Street, Clarke Quay | Casual Italian Dining and an affair with its Bone Marrow Pizza

Food Review: Amo Italian Restaurant at Hong Kong Street, Clarke Quay | Casual Italian Dining and an affair with its Bone Marrow Pizza

by theRantingPanda @ The Ranting Panda

The Place I have been keen to check out Amo, a casual Italian restaurant by the ilLido Group along Hong Kong Street near Clarke Quay station. It finally materialised as one of our year end gathering over casual food, bites and conversations. Upon entering Amo, short for the Italian word Amore (which means love), I was greeted by the bar section, followed by the main dining area which has a semi private dining room. I didn’t manage to venture to the back of the restaurant where there is an al fresco courtyard dining space. The ambience is casual and relaxed, though it is relatively dim as well. The Food The menu is more extensive than I thought, so it is a good idea to come in a group for a better variety. We started with the Burrata with Eggplant Salad, Walnuts and Bottarga (S$24), a fresh start to the meal. The eggplant salad adds a different dimension to the dish. There are quite a number of pizza options though the one which easily stood out for all of us is the Bone Marrow, Wild Garlic Pesto and Anchovy Salsa Verde (S$29). We didn’t spit actually bone marrow on the pizza, hence [...]

Snippets: The 10 things you must-do and must-eat at Zurich, Switzerland

by theRantingPanda @ The Ranting Panda

Zurich – The hub of picturesque Switzerland, often mistaken as the capital of the country, Zurich holds a special place in my heart since my undergraduate exchange days years ago. It may not have most famous landmarks like Eiffel Tower and Big Ben, but the capital of chocolates and global wealth management hub has much more to offer in terms of food, nature and scenery. Here are the top ten spots we recommend if you are looking for a diverse experience in Zurich! ******* 1) Take in the view of Zurich from Lindenhof The best views are usually free and that applies to Lindenhof, situated on the Lindenhof hill right beside Limmat River. This spot offers a good panoramic view of the old town and Grossmünster Cathedral. Grab a coffee and some snacks and sit by the edges, it feels like life’s complete.  ******* 2) Enjoy the pastries at the Schober Peclard Café Located in the heart of Zurich old town is  Schober Peclard cafe, one of the oldest and most traditional in Zurich. The interior spans across three storeys, but do expect a queue especially on weekends as it is very popular amongst locals and tourists. The ambience exudes that [...]

Anatomie: The Best Travel Outfits for Long Flights and an On-the-Go Lifestyle

by Benjamin Juster @ Television of Nomads

Having the right travel outfits goes a long way towards ensuring comfort, functionality, and of course, a healthy dose of style while enjoying the wonders of the world. But sheer comfort is not enough for your travel outfits: if that were true, sweatpants would be enough, but sweatpants are bulky and one-note, making them a poor choice for compact travel in a variety of style settings. To satisfy the rigors of everyday adventure and a traveling lifestyle, men and women both need to know the best travel outfits for long flights that are stylish, comfortable, versatile and practical. Making the best travel outfits we’ve found yet, Anatomie makes luxury travel clothes that hit all these notes: feeling great, looking great, and aiding a lifestyle of movement. We tested these fabulous Anatomie travel outfits out during our latest trip to Myanmar, and found them to be the best travel outfits for long flights, and perfect for a variety of other situations, from ruggedly traversing the dusty, temple-covered landscape of Bagan on a motorbike to walking the local street markets of Yangon in the rain, and looking sophisticated during our high-end escape on a lake resort. With their ability to work in a […]

Hiking the Japanese Alps in Winter

by Michelle Rae Uy @ Days to Come

Towering peaks up to 3,000 metres tall stand tall in the heart of Japan’s Honshu island, dividing the area into two parts. These are the Japanese Alps, encompassing four prefectures and three of the country’s mightiest mountain ranges – the Hidas, Kiso, and Akaishi.  In warmer months, they’re sun-dappled and covered with carpets of green, where absurdly beautiful valleys and picturesque towns sit peacefully and mighty summits keep a relentless watch nearby. Yet in the wintertime, they’re even more thunderous, glistening with fresh white snow, wind-chiselled facades that are simply spectacular. Make no mistake: hiking the Japanese Alps in the

Food Review: Kenny’s Krabbi at Tai Thong Crescent | Casual Crab-centric restaurant in Potong Pasir

Food Review: Kenny’s Krabbi at Tai Thong Crescent | Casual Crab-centric restaurant in Potong Pasir

by theRantingPanda @ The Ranting Panda

The Place Located the The Venue Shoppes along Tai Thong Crescent in Potong Pasir, the few weeks old Kenny’s Krabbi is a casual restaurant with a focus on crab dishes. The restaurant is just a few doors away from one of our favourite beef noodles, the Original Orchard Emerald Beef Noodle. The casual and small space is able to accommodate less than 50 people. The Food The price range is huge, and goes from S$6.90 for Sliced Fish Soup all the way to S$68 for the Braised Crab Bee Hoon (800g). Other than a series of crabby dishes like the Rich Broth Crab Bee Hoon and Singapore Chilli Crab, there are also options like Seafood Crispy Noodles (S$8.90) and Seafood Hor Fun (S$8.90). We started with some sides like the Homemade Crabmeat Roll (S$6.90) and Signature Braised Pork Belly with Leaf Bun (S$3). The crabmeat roll is akin to Ngo Hiang, which is quite delicious. For mains, we had the Rich Broth Crab Bee Hoon 600g Crab (S$20/half portion). While the crab is quite fresh, I find the broth to be a tad diluted as I was expecting a much richer flavour. Similarly, the broth of the Sliced Fish Soup [...]

Food Review: Majestic Restaurant at Downtown’s Marina One | Former New Majestic Hotel Cantonese Restaurant reopens

by theRantingPanda @ The Ranting Panda

The Place Located at Marine One, Majestic Restaurant should be a familiar name to many, though most people would probably still associate it with the now defunct New Majestic Hotel at Bukit Pasoh Road. After a hiatus of six months, the contemporary Cantonese restaurant has reopened at the brand new Marine One mixed development at the East Tower. Located at level 4 in a unique dome structure, Majestic’s new location mirrors that of New Zealand steakhouse Wakanui at the West Tower as the two anchor restaurants in this development. The main dining area offers a view of the lush and luxe Marine One, with plenty of natural light in the day, Italian stucco walls and dark wood floors. A nostalgic touch within the restaurant is the historic signboard of the New Majestic Hotel hanged beside the kitchen. If you need a private space, the restaurant also have a few private dining rooms. I heard that the restaurant only accepts reservations at the moment, so do call ahead to reserve. The Food One main difference from the old Majestic Restaurant is that dim sum is finally served on the menu at Marine One. Some dim sum to start are the Spinach [...]

Food Review: Narikura Tonkatsu at Takadanobaba, Tokyo | The Micheline Bib Gourmand Tonkatsu better than Maisen or Tonki in Tokyo!

by theRantingPanda @ The Ranting Panda

The Place Located near Takadanobaba Station along the JR Yamamote Line, Narikura is easily one of the best tonkatsu I have ever eaten in Tokyo, and is without surprise on the Michelin Bib Gourmand list. The queue usually extends to the small road beside the restaurant, located at a basement of a nondescript old building where the queue extends from the basement stairway all the way to street level on most days. With less than 30 seater capacity, we were ushered to a corner table though you can watch all the kitchen action if you were sitting at the row of counter seats. The crowd is a mix of locals and foreigners with local Japanese being the majority. The Food The most challenging part of the menu is that it is all in Japanese and we took awhile to decipher the various options. As a guide, there are two main types of pork to go for – Rosu/ロース (loin) or Hire/ヒレ (fillet). Go for loin if you favour more fats in your meat, which also means Rosu is usually more tender than Hire. We went for two different types of tonkatsu, with both being rosu (loin) options. The Kiramugi (煌麦豚) [...]

Food Review: Maru Dine & Bar at Icon Village | Japanese Fusion Restaurant in Tanjong Pagar

Food Review: Maru Dine & Bar at Icon Village | Japanese Fusion Restaurant in Tanjong Pagar

by theRantingPanda @ The Ranting Panda

The Place As much as Tanjong Pagar is changing with the new Tanjong Pagar Centre, Icon Village is one of the very first mixed development in this area with a concentrated dining options. Opened about three months ago in Icon Village is Maru Dine & Bar, a contemporary fusion restaurant which combines the elements of Vietnamese, Japanese and American cuisine into its dining concept. My first impression of the dining space is the long counter bar and high ceiling, which create a spacious feel. The steel telegraph poles with loudspeakers are reflective of the streets on the Old Quarters district in Hanoi, which is also part of the logo of the restaurant. The dining ambience is casual and relaxed, with a semi-private dining area towards one end of the restaurant. The Food To cater to the CBD crowd, there is a separate lunch menu where the dishes are priced more competitively than dinner. From the lunch menu, I enjoyed both the Sashimi Hiyashi Somen (S$32) and Mentaiko Cod Fish (S$22). If you love fresh sashimi, the Sashimi Hiyashi Somen will not disappoint with a fresh mix of salmon and even uni sashimi. Somen is quite light for me, so this [...]
