Goodbye, Anthony Bourdain

Was so sad waking up today morning and reading this really sad news. It’s was kind of melancholy, I was googling AB and Spain, hoping to look for the episode where he tried El Bulli, Espinaler and other wonderful Spanish delights.

Chinese Sauerkraut Fish 太二 @ Shenzhen

I have wanted but avoided coming to this restaurant. The queue was usually between 1~2 hours, and there’s only one dish on the menu. This is the crazy phenomenon called Chinese Sauerkraut Fish.

Yum Yum Flavour 湘与香缘 @ Beijing

Merry Christmas Everyone! It’s not quite the White Christmas I was hoping in Beijing. In fact, it was so dry, it had not snowed so far this year [2017]. Nevertheless, we were so cold that we need something spicy to warm the stomach.

Nasi Padang the proper way

Whenever I went to Jakarta (or for that matter, Indonesia), I would always head out to my favourite Nasi Padang restaurants for a real treat.

Old Door Post 老门框爆肚 @ Beijing

Another type of hotpot, Instant Boiled Mutton 涮(shuàn)羊肉, doesn’t sound like much. But the knowledge and technique behind it has been passed down for hundreds of years.

Settebello @ SLC

As Sushi is to the Japanese, Pizza is one of the greatest export of Italy to the rest of the world. However, it was so mixed with local cultures, one often gets disappointed when they go to Italy and tastes the “original”. Thus, Associazione Verace Pizza Napoletana is born.

Sichuan Dou Hua @ Beach Road

It was famous for the long-spout tea ceremony, where the tea server will pour the hot water into your tea cup miles away. These days, it just serves good quality, reasonably priced Sichuan food that is not crazy spicy.

椰子不语 @ Shanghai

After a furry of Szechuan hotpot craze come a series of Hainan coconut hotpot craze. Let’s see how long it was last.

Alter Ego @ Esplanade

Alter Ego is the second self of A Poke Theory, dishing out Hawaiian poke bowls by day, craft beer & unapologetically sinful bar grub by night. Situated on Esplanade’s waterfront, it’s a sweet spot to knock back IPAs under the stars, to an unrivalled view of the Marina Bay.
