Update: Omotesando Koffee is no longer in business and is now operating as Toranomon Koffee at Toranomon Hills. So glad to be able to drink Omotesando Koffee’s brew again. This coffee bar was a regular feature during our February trip to Tokyo.

We visited the famous Bear Pond Expresso in Shimokitazawa on our recent trip to Tokyo. Google ‘coffee in Tokyo’ and this tiny coffee bar will definitely turn up in the search results. I went there with pretty high expectations given

During our last visit to Bangkok, one of the restaurants that we visited was Supanniga Eating Room. My friends and I had never heard of the restaurant before. Then again, I don’t visit Bangkok often enough to know much about
One thing that I miss very much after going back to work is eating the Yong Tau Foo noodles at this stall in Tiong Bahru Market. For S$3 a bowl, it is great value for money. Generous portions of Yong
If you are a big fan of oyakodon and you happen to be in Tokyo, you should give Tamahide a try. I read that this famous restaurant in Ningyocho, founded in 1760 (or thereabouts), is the birthplace of oyakodon. What
