    Dinner 2019

    Thank you! I was there for 4 weeks, traveling from Tokyo to the southern region of Kyushu. Very happy to say I will return at the end of January to do some cooking/baking and give cooking lessons in a small village just outside of Nagasaki.

    yes! This is exactly what I love about Japanese culture and style as expressed in plated food. Rooted in the ancient flower arrangement tradition of Ikebana, which exemplifies a “Zen” minimalism that does away with all that is not essential. Coupled with masterful technique (of which the Japanese are unrivaled) this artistic style produces the most visually stunning and pleasurable to eat food I have ever experienced.

    Taipei- vegetable dumplings at Zi Lin, xiao long bao, grilled king trumpet mushroom, the best dumpling I’ve ever eaten, pea shoots, century egg, pork dumpling at Din Tai Fung, giant pot of braised cow stomachs, mango ice, sweet potato greens (amazing), and pepper cakes (ate at least 4 of them)

    Dinner 2019

    Song Fa was in the city near Clarke Quay- my first time having it, so no reference point. The chicken rice at Tian Tian was surprisingly fantastic (I got there just before they sold out), as was the chili crab at "No Signboard Seafood". Definitely check out the Jewel; Changi airport is immensely impressive.
