When Everything Looks Bleak (Or, That Time I Found Awesome Gluten Free Lunch in North Wales)

It has to be said, eating gluten free in the UK was a lot more difficult than I expected. I mean, I always found something, but it would have been nice to not get accidentally “glutenised” several times. In cosmopolitan London, initial requests to find out the gluten free dishes on the menus were met with blank stares. “G-whaaaaaaat?”. In North Wales, the reaction […]

Eat Where Locals Eat? No, Eat Withlocals!

“Eat where the locals eat” is my motto when travelling, but what about “eat with the locals?” Now there’s an experience. It’s been awhile since I first got clued into the concept of dining in people’s  stranger’s homes, so the idea wasn’t too new or shocking for me. In fact, the whole sharing economy thing has […]

The Passion of Alentejo

I make no secret for my unwavering love of Portugal, but ever the hispanophile, I can always argue that people from Andalucía are some of the most passionate people on the planet. There is something about the fiery, passionate nature of Southern Spain… Whether it’s the 80-something year old man who works in the alimentacion around the corner from […]

Eating Off-Road in the Mountains of Alicante

They say that travelling is not about the destination, but the journey itself, and based on a recent experience where I was seeking out fun, food, and adventure (not necessarily in that order) in the province of Alicante in Spain, I would say that is definitely true. However, when you know that ultimately you will reach a point […]

“Tasting Lisboa” to Learn About Lisbon’s Culture and Identity

The first thing that struck me about Lisbon was the melting pot of cultures that were going about their daily business in the perfectly aligned streets and monumental squares of the Baixa neighbourhood.  Whether it was the men from the west coast of Africa, who were proudly donning their traditional, bright coloured dress, perhaps without a place to call home […]

All the Asian Food I Ate So Far in Sydney

When I started writing my last post about Asian food, All the Asian Food I Ate So Far in Adelaide, it was originally titled All the Asian Food I Ate So Far in Australia. It was supposed to be an epic overview of everywhere I had been across the country across two cities, but when I […]

Sunday Brunch: Sotto on West

This wasn’t the first time that I’d been to Sotto on West. Since discovering it a couple of months back, I’ve visited several times. It’s conveniently located just five minutes walk from my family’s apartment in Crows Nest, where I am staying while in Sydney, and they have free WiFi to boot. Boom. They also have […]

All the Asian Food I Ate So Far in Adelaide

One of the things I miss most while being in Spain is Asian food, and it’s one of the things I most look forward to when I return to visit Australia. I know what you are thinking. Why Australia? Asian food is better in Asia! Of course, it is. Vietnamese food is best eaten in Vietnam, Thai food […]

Don’t Booze and Luge

I have to admit, the first thing that drew me to the Skyline in Rotorua was not the fact that my grandmother was paying for me to visit. Nor was it the attractions at the top. It was the Volcanic Hills Winery. I’d heard they had a tasting room at the top of the cable car, […]

Uncovering New Zealand’s Foodie Side

At the end of December I spent a whirlwind couple of days in Auckland. I didn’t plan on doing anything in particular. I definitely didn’t imagine myself joining a food tour around the city. I thought I would just re-acquaint myself with a city that I was once familiar with, thanks to frequent childhood jaunts across […]
