We were in Shanghai for four days and we ate very, very well. From crazy cheap and delicious street food to fancy-dancy cocktails and food with a view. It was all good. This city knows how to get its grub on. Below is a selection of just some of what we consumed in our time […]

We didn’t eat in the Tai O fishing village, but instead returned to Kowloon and had a late lunch at the Sweetheart Cafe on Ashley road. This was my first experience with the culinary delight known as “Hong Kong French Toast” which is not for the faint of heart or stomach. It’s two slices of […]

After our Heritage Building walk and a refreshing beer in the Strand Hotel bar, Bob walked us over to where we’d decided to have lunch, a restaurant called 999 Shan Noodle at No. 130 B 34th Street. It’s not fancy, and it’s not expensive, but it certainly was delicious, and we had a nice time chatting […]

We were at the Tambo del Inka in Urubamba for four nights and while our days were so busy we never really saw the town, we did walk from the hotel each night to find somewhere to eat dinner. Of course the hotel has a lovely restaurant, but menu prices were steep and there was […]

We arrived in Matera hungry, and as soon as we checked in to il Sextantio, set off on foot, up and up to the piazza del Duomo and then down via del Duomo to the cute little Piazza del Sedile where we sank gratefully into chairs outside on the piazza. I wish I could remember […]

Lecce was no exception in terms of the high quality of the food we had all over Puglia. When researching for the trip, several restaurant’s names came up over and over again and I dutifully added them to my list. Yet in the end, the one we liked the best was one we chose at […]
