[Taipei] Nomura Sushi (のむら 野村鮨)

This is my current favorite sushi-ya in Taipei.  You will need a reservation for this one.  Lunch has the best CP (cost / performance) value but it's a place for quality and not quantity.  (Warning: You might leave hungry if you don't order additional pieces.)  This post has been hiding in my archive for so long simply because I didn't want to share it.  But then again, there are so many blogpost out there already so I guess the cat is long out of the bag.


[Hong Kong] Matsuichiya (ラーメン松壱家)

If you have been reading my blog for a while now, you might know I am not a big fan of Japanese ramen.  I love Japanese food but I am just not a ramen enthusiast.  If given the choice, I would rather eat udon / soba (not a fan of somen either).  Yet, I would still visit ramen places once in a while to give myself another chance to have a change of heart.  This time, I chose Matsuichiya.

Lawry's The Prime Rib

Believe it or not, this is my first time to go to Lawry's even though I lived in the states for many years.  I have had prime rib in the past but not sure why I never went to Lawry's. 


Arirang Korean BBQ Restaurant (阿里郎)

Compared to Hong Kong, the choices for a decent Korean BBQ restaurant in Macau is next to none.  Whenever my friends and I are craving for Korean BBQ in Macau, this is our default choice (but even then, quality deteriorated recently...).  The restaurant is located in Taipa, so that says a lot for us - the "peninsula" folks.

Sichuan House (霸王川莊)

These photos are brought to you by my friends from Kuwait~  Thank Sunoj (for carrying the camera) and Smitha (for taking the photos)!

My friends love spicy food so I thought it will only be fitting if I take them to a local Sichuan restaurant to experience some authentic Sichuan food before they return to Kuwait.  Sichuan House is a fairly new restaurant in LKF.  I have heard some good reviews and saw some mouth-watering photos, so I decide to give it a try.

Fist Fillets in Hot Chili Oil

Pang Pang Korean BBQ Restaurant

To Kwa Wan (土瓜灣) is not a popular destination of choice when it comes to dining out because there is no subway!  A station is proposed but I think it will be a while before it will be completed.  So we are here one night under a friend's recommendation.  He lives in the area so he knows the hole-in-the-wall eateries in the neighborhood.

ATUM desserant

ATUM attracted a lot of eyeballs when it first opened.  The concept is fun, and the creations are colorful and appeasing to the eyes.  I don't think there is any other place like it in Hong Kong, yet.  I definitely "liked" a lot of posts on my Instagram feed before coming here myself.  Yet, I have been warned it's one of those places where once is enough.

Yakiniku Futago HK (大阪燒肉)

Following on my barbecue train, it's only fitting that I post my latest yakiniku (Japanese barbecue) adventure in Causeway Bay, Hong Kong.  I have been wanting to come here ever since it opened its doors in April 2014 and the whole experience has exceeded my expectations!  This place takes reservations, has a very fun atmosphere, delicious food, well trained staff, and reasonable price.  I can't really ask for more!

Honey Pig Gooldaegee Korean Grill (Ellicott City)

So what the hell is going on with all these old posts...  I am looking for this.  I have been posting about Asian barbecue and I just can't stop myself from thinking of this place.  Honey Pig is one of my all time favorites.  So I was actually trying to dig up photos at this restaurant so I can blog this and share with you all.

Heaven on earth
(to me anyway)

Bistro Jeanty

Another gem found hidden in my stash of old photos... (I know... there are so many of them actually... Hopefully I will be able to finish all those I wanted to post about this year then I can go back and sought through my old ones...)  These would be places I wanted to return if I were given the opportunity to go to these places again, God willing.  But then there are also plenty of uncharted territories in my plan... Life is too short!!!

I almost forgot all about this place until I was digging through my old photos last night!  Couldn't think of the name of the restaurant but I remember I enjoyed the food.  I only vaguely remembered something about Frederick and Maryland.  Luckily I found it on my Urbanspoon profile :) (Since I no longer lives in the states, I rarely update it... plus, I wasn't as active a blogger I was back then.)

The restaurant is very beautiful - both inside and out.  So it really left an impression in my mind.

(Back in the day, I don't take pictures of the restaurant itself.
It's good enough if I took pictures of the food.
Now, of course I am at another level... haha...)

Oatmeal Porridge

If you have been following my Instagram, you will notice I ate a lot the past month and a half.  In fact, I checked my schedule today and realized there were more days I am eating out than days that I were not.  Honestly, I shouldn't be complaining but then, I know I don't want to spend hours on the treadmill so I really have to cut back.


[Taipei] Kanpai (Tamsui) (乾杯) (淡水店)

2015 update:  This location is now closed.

Kanpai (乾杯) is a popular Taiwanese BBQ place.  I became aware of it from the Taiwanese soap "My Queen" (敗犬女王), which is still one of my all-time favorite soap operas by the way.  All of my friends who have been there loved it so I am happy I finally had the chance to check it out!  (You can't really eat BBQ alone so I have to come with friends.)

Huton #1 (胡同燒肉) (1號店)

(11/5/2014 update:  They accept online reservations now!!!)

In addition to spicy hot pots, Taiwanese BBQ is another must-eat when traveling to Taiwan (along with traditional Taiwanese food, sushi, and night markets, etc.).  In fact, I always carry digestive enzymes with me whenever I travel to Taiwan because I always ate too much.
