[TAIPEI] oo5. DAZZLING CAFE

Dragging our 20kg luggage through subway stations and streetwalks of Taipei seemed like the best way to work up an appetite. So that day, a native Taiwanese friend, Wesley, met us at the legendary Dazzling Cafe, touted by many food bloggers for their famous ice-cream toasts. And we feasted on this ginormous 3-tiered toast splendidly… Continue reading [TAIPEI] oo5. DAZZLING CAFE

[SYDNEY] AUSTRALIA’S BEST-LOVED GELATO

I've finally tried Messina, voted the best gelato in Australia by the Good Food Guide! Our double-scoop picks: Salted Caramel and White Chocolate: salted caramel gelato with white chocolate chip, and Tiramisu: egg, marsala and mascarpone gelato with lady finger biscuits soaked in espresso coffee True to form, the combination tastes much better than it looks i.e. heavenly… Continue reading [SYDNEY] AUSTRALIA’S BEST-LOVED GELATO

KULA Ice Cream Parlour & Coffee Bar

To satisfy the major cravings I had for waffles, I googled "Best Waffles in Central London". This Swedish gem of a café turned up multiple times in the search engine and I decided to hunt it down! Jet lag woke me up at 5am hence I was ravenous! KULA opens at 8am. I took the… Continue reading KULA Ice Cream Parlour & Coffee Bar

Passion Tree Cafe, Brisbane

It's 36°C in Brisbane & I'm mad happy to find a cafè with shaved ice, desserts and cold cold coffee! Incredibly spacious with comfy throw pillows along wall benches, the cafè is popular amongst local Koreans and Asians. We found the place on a warm Tuesday afternoon, drawn to the sweet aroma of macarons. Their… Continue reading Passion Tree Cafe, Brisbane

[MELBOURNE] oo2. Caffe e Torta

Upon touchdown I had managed to catch a good nights' sleep (albeit, due to time difference, it was 3am Melbourne time when I finally crashed), and even woke up for hotel breakfast early next morning. Late afternoon, I ventured into the CBD area with hopes of locating Hardware Societe which was further out past Collins Street,… Continue reading [MELBOURNE] oo2. Caffe e Torta

The Cafè Braun, Mondsee

Hungry for apple strudels and a steaming mug of hot chocolate and coffee? The Cafè Braun was our mandatory pit-stop on a tour of landmarks from the 1965 film musical, Sound of Music! 'Twas a rainy mid-afternoon, and we ran from Mondsee Abbey (a quick 50m dash) into the welcoming embrace of Cafè Braun, where… Continue reading The Cafè Braun, Mondsee

[TAIPEI] oo1. Frozen ice and flashing lights

Taipei in the summer heat - not my ideal kinda holiday. Nevertheless, street food and shopping makes up for everything! We conquered Ximending and Shih-lin Night Market. A MUST-HAVE in Taiwan! Land of the original Bubble-tea Ximending is very much similar to Myeongdong Korea. Similar youthful vibrance and pulsating energy. Lovely museum of fine arts… Continue reading [TAIPEI] oo1.

Haneda Tokyo – May ’13

Raiding the local supermarkets is a no-go action in Japan! So well-stocked such that the food&beverage galore is every Japan-enthusiast's worst nightmare... you'll wanna cram the entire store into your baggage home. Yummiest kitkat ever! Even better than Matcha in my opinion 🙂 Or perhaps I was just ravenously hungry. Tada!! Pink!:D It was sooo… Continue reading Haneda Tokyo – May ’13
