大肠包小肠 – Taipei, Taiwan


This is the first Taiwanese food that I ate when I was in Taipei. It’s a common snack in Taipei and this one has 3 outlets in Taipei alone… maybe more now :). 大肠包小肠 literally means big sausage wrap small sausage… But it’s actually a pork sausage wrapped with a sausage-shaped glutinous rice thingy. I followed the BBQ aroma from just outside the ground floor of my hotel, and found this little stall in the middle of a small alley. The stall owner boast the sausages are made from wild boars from Wulai (乌来) which is several miles south of … Continue reading 大肠包小肠 – Taipei, Taiwan

百度烤肉专卖店 @ Shenzhen,China


I passed this restaurant a few times already so I decided to solve the mystery if its the same as the one back in Singapore along Middle Road. Was there around 2.30pm so it was not very crowded. Found out that this is the first flagship retaurant before this became a chain of restaurants. Rating: 5/5. Not only food is good, the service is tip top as well. Taste: Very nice. Great for families with kids cos not spicy. Best thing is, all the meats are seasoned differerntly. This is definitely different from the buffet style one back in SG. … Continue reading 百度烤肉专卖店 @ Shenzhen,China

串王 @ Yuen Long, NT,HK


This is another little shop I’ve discovered in Yuen Long… When it’s peak hour, you will see a crowd there patiently waiting for the lady to get their orders ready. Surprisingly, only 1 person is manning the store and she alone can manage so many BBQ pits! So I decided I should try what’s the big hoo ha is all about… Rating: 5/5 Taste: The difference between the BBQ here and China is that this one has a lot of different flavours. Each meat is seasoned differently unlike the BBQs in China, all same tasste and using the same seasoning … Continue reading 串王 @ Yuen Long, NT,HK

Kam Tin Japanese Restaurant (金田日本料理) @ Yuen Long, NT Hong Kong


I crossed over to Yuen Long in the New Territories of Hong Kong last weekend. My first time there and to my surprise, the whole place is a town on its own! There are so many good places to eat, so many places to shop, karaoke is so cheap (clean ones of course), so many places to eat (oops I said that already) and so crowded! Met up with my friend who lives there and she brought me to this place for Japanese food… I was like skeptical at first, because I’m in Hong Kong man! I want Char Siew! … Continue reading Kam Tin Japanese Restaurant (金田日本料理) @ Yuen Long, NT Hong Kong

Japanese BBQ (Ishi Mura POMO)


Seriously, I do not know what is this called… but this is at the yakitori station of Ishi Mura of POMO at level 3. Quite a satisfying meal though for less than $10. Rating: 5/5 Taste: Well seasoned meat and fish don’t really smell that much. This pork belly apparently is quite close to our Chinese Siew Yoke, just that it’s BBQed and seasoned with teriyaki sauce. Overall very satisfying! Instead of pork, you can choose chicken or other combination too! Portion: Quite good. But the rice is so nice I had to add more rice lah… really nice with … Continue reading Japanese BBQ (Ishi Mura POMO)
