Tokyo Snake Centre

Managed to convince a friend to come with me to this snake cafe and despite the fact they initially said they didn’t like snakes, my friend said that they actually enjoyed the experience quite a bit. He was way too jumpy whenever a snake moved though and almost dropped one which would not have been […]

Ajinoya

I found this place online and didn’t realize until we reached the door that it was a Michelin-starred restaurant. Made sense given the long wait we had to go through even though we were already there just 30min after opening time. They are quite used to this and have a pretty good system in place […]

Kawaii Monster Cafe

Saw a video about this restaurant on Facebook and thought it would be interesting enough to give it a try. You can see a short clip of us entering the restaurant here. The music was a little loud at times but the staff were lively, friendly and very accommodating; especially given most of their clientele […]

Mister Sunshine’s

Happened to look this place up as I was visiting the IceArena nearby. Ratings were good and ambience looked super homey. They even had blankets stored in a shelf although I didn’t see anyone using them (then again, I was seated indoors both times I visited). On the left was the Sauteed Field Mushrooms and […]

The Modern Eatery

On Saturday, The Modern Eatery had their soft opening and therefore had everything (except desserts) on their menu at 50% off. A friend of mine who works there let us know and helped us get a booking for dinner that night. The atmosphere there was very relaxed and the food came at a nice leisurely […]

Hakata Furyu

I’m generally not a big fan of ramen, however for the sake of letting my friend try something new, we went to a ramen place along Akihabara. Surprisingly enough, I found out later on that this was quite a popular ramen shop too. They use the vending-machine process, which is especially useful for non-Japanese-speaking customers […]

Eggless

A popular dessert-stop in Adelaide, I have visited Eggless twice now with a friend who is a big fan. They apparently update their menus every month or so, which is great in giving people a reason to keep coming back. Sometimes, they also have special items on the menu that only last for a week […]

A Mother’s Milk

Came here for a simple brunch and was very pleased and satisfied with the meal. I decided to go with my usual avacado and egg staple, which was generous in it’s serving of avacado and just the right amount for me. My friend advised that their baked eggs were delicious and that she always came […]

Sutyot Kuetiau Lua Payak Phaya Thai (ร้านสุดยอดก๋วยเตี๋ยวเรือป๋ายักษ์)

Apparently translating to “The Best of Thai Boat Noodles”, this restaurant with their orange-shirt-clad servers is the most famous boat noodle restaurant in Bangkok. Recommended to me by my sister-in-law, I went with a friend to check it out. As you can see above, the menu is short and simple. For those unfamiliar, boat noodles […]
