Our Favourite Local Noodle Shop In Hoi An

2018-10-25T11:17:34+07:00By |

“Kiss Me Honey Honey Kiss Me…” blares at life-threatening volume from a people-carrier that has stopped outside the restaurant we've just sat down in. It's a rather incongruous aural assault in this quiet lane that is home to our favourite local noodle shop in Hoi An, in Central Vietnam. This modern people mover, filled to ...

Best Lao Khao Soi in Luang Prabang – Footpath Feasting in Laos

2019-09-11T15:36:35+07:00By |

Best Lao Khao Soi in Luang Prabang is to be found in a simple, squat, open-fronted timber and corrugated iron shed, with a handful of wooden tables inside. There's no sign and nothing whatsoever to identify the dilapidated eatery as Luang Prabang’s best Lao khao soi place but trust us, it's worth the trouble to find ...

Monday Memories: Bangkok’s Junior MasterChef

2018-01-05T14:39:26+07:00By |

There are many in Thailand who believe that traditional home-cooked Thai food is becoming a thing of the past. This image of Bangkok's junior MasterChef gave me some hope that wasn't the case. Pre-packaged curry pastes and even entire Thai dishes that were historically the staple of a home cooked meal, now sit in plastic, ...

Footpath Feasting: From Pho to Thit Bo Kho in Saigon

2019-01-29T16:46:16+07:00By |

When Lara first suggested the idea of a side trip to Saigon from Bangkok, my thoughts immediately turned to food, to Vietnamese food, and specifically to pho bo (or more correctly, phở bò). Soon after arriving, I'd be salivating at the words thit bo kho (thịt bò khô). You see, when I first moved to Sydney ...

Saigon After Dark — An Itinerary

2019-01-29T16:51:52+07:00By |

Saigon’s leafy streets, art deco delights and elegant colonial-era villas mean the city is easy on the eyes. But after dark, when splendid old buildings such as the Opera House and City Hall are spectacularly illuminated, the city is stunning in parts and atmospheric everywhere else.

Traditional Vietnamese Iced Coffee and Saigon’s Best Cafes

2019-01-29T16:48:48+07:00By |

We’re espresso people: we like our coffee short, black, strong, and hot, Italian-style. Yet in Saigon we found ourselves stopping often for tall, sweet, cold glasses of traditional Vietnamese iced coffee, called cà phê đá or ‘coffee ice’, or cà phê sữa đá when it’s with milk. Made from Vietnamese-grown dark roast coffee beans, the ...

2018-01-05T14:55:31+07:00By |

The fiery Isaan food at Khon Kaen markets and the spicy northeastern cuisine in general is a highlight of a visit to Thailand's Isaan region. So as the sun started to descend we made our way from the lakeside markets through the town centre, where the footpaths are crammed with food stalls, and the night markets were in ...

Footpath Feasting: From Street Food to Soul Food

2018-12-17T17:26:18+07:00By |

As travel and food writers we have to eat out every day, sometimes two or three times a day. In Bangkok one of those meals will involve street food. That means we've eaten a lot of street food. That doesn't mean we don't reach out to people like Jarrett Wrisley of Soul Food Mahanakorn for street food ...

Som Tam and Gai Yang – Isaan Style Grilled Chicken and Salad

2018-01-05T14:54:53+07:00By |

Som Tam and Gai Yang – grilled chicken and salad Isaan style – became our go-to meal throughout out journey around the off-the-beaten-track Isaan region of northeastern Thailand. The splendid Khmer temples may be the Isaan region’s most alluring attraction, yet for us the food markets and fiery cuisine of northeastern Thailand were equally as tantalising. Som Tam and Gai ...
