Soi 38

Found by my friend, Soi 38 is a restaurant serving thai boat noodles. However, unlike the iconic tiny boat noodle bowls in Thailand, these are normal sized portions. Regardless, they come really cheap at only $10 per bowl, or $15 for a large bowl! Clockwise from top left is the beef boat noodles, duck noodles, […]

Rice Paper Scissors

Finally managed to get some somewhat-decent photos from RPS on 2 separate trips (you can probably tell by the difference in qualities), one during dinner and one from lunch. A tapas-style restaurant, it’s a great way to try a variety of different dishes (and you can get 5 dishes for a good deal between 2-3 […]

Three Broomsticks (Universal Studios Osaka)

Located inside Universal Studio Osaka’s Harry Potter world Hogsmeade Village, Three Broomsticks is an iconic restaurant/pub from the series where students would go to spend their weekends.

Below are the few photogenic courses. The sashimi was generously portioned, as you can see how thick the slices are. The tuna and […]

Tu Restaurant and Bar

A recently opened french restaurant, my sister and I went for a taste test at Tu to see how the food was (also helped that she had discount voucher). The restaurant itself was very small, fitting only about 4-5 tables of around 2-6 people each. Because of this, and the fact that it was relatively […]

The French Brasserie

After a very ‘unusual’ craving for escargots, I found this restaurant online and managed to rope my cousin into trying it out with me – as well as satisfying my very specific craving. The main dish I was looking forward to – the escargots – were divine. The sauce was amazing and whilst my cousin […]

Masons of Bendigo

While visiting my sister’s placement in Bendigo, she booked us a dinner at Masons, citing that the food was good and as close to fine dining Bendigo offered. The restaurant was spacious and the layout allowed quite a number of tables without feeling like customers were rubbing elbows with one another. Masons on Bendigo’s menu […]

I never felt rushed both times I visited and the atmosphere was really great to just enjoy the food and chat with friends. On our first visit, I decided […]
