Lombok, Indonesia: Eat, Play, Laze

12 days in Indonesia. 39 restless souls (also known as social media influencers/bloggers/vloggers). 5 destinations — only one of which I had not visited. Lombok. Lombok, an island in the West Nusa Tenggara province, was exactly how I imagined it. Paradisiacal and relatively uncrowded. What Bali must have been like a long time ago. Day…

The Trip That Was In Indonesian (And Non Indonesian) Food

I came, I saw, I conquered platefuls of Indonesian food. I grew a beer gut. I’ve said it too many times, Indonesian cuisine is one of my favourites in the world (“world” meaning the 49 countries I’ve been to). I love it more than Thai — I know that’s a lot to say, as Thai…

Tamborine Mountain Restaurants: Le Chile Cafe, Eagle Heights

“What the heck did I just eat I suddenly got nostalgia!”. And it wasn’t just Le Chile Cafe’s food that tugged my mind back to South America. The festive hues on the decor, the lethargic ambiance, and the faint Spanish music piped in the deck… All made me terribly miss my fave continent on earth…

Simplé Lang, Makati, Philippines: Not Plain Simple

I am currently sulking in my Australian woman cave because my shire’s summer has decided to act like me during that time of the month: Intensely moody. Don’t get me wrong, I love bed weather days. What I don’t like is having the craving for Filipino food, especially when I’m 6,000+ kilometers away from home…

Kabila Filipino Bistro (At M Cafe), Makati, Philippines

It was then time to move our heavy-from-brunch arses from Museum Cafe to the other half of its space, Kabila — a Tagalog word which means “(on the) other side”. And this Filipino bistro, as literal as it can get, is on the other side of M Cafe. Both under the Raintree Restaurants’ umbrella. Kabila…

Taza Fresh Table Restaurant, Tagaytay: Redefining Comfort Food

Outdoors in. The vibe for me, was like so. Small potted flowering plants. Wooden chairs painted white, dressed in colorful cushions. The interiors emit a feel of a country garden which diners will sense upon stepping in. But for the keen eyes, the few Middle Eastern accents that come in the form of gold magic…

The Week That Was In Mexican Food

If a cuisine’s on the UNESCO Intangible Cultural Heritage List, it must be something. The Mexican fare, a marriage of Mesoamerican cooking techniques/main staples and European food components (such as cheese and meat and herbs), is one of the most complex my taste buds have ever encountered. It’s up there with Persian, Indian and Chinese….
