Eat Noodles the Phat Phuc Way, London

Phat Phuc London

A cultural rant carefully disguised as food review. This is my take on a Vietnamese pho shack in Southwest London, which also cooks up Malaysian Laksa and Chinese pork buns Cantonese-style. From the way this business operates to the tableware it uses, Phat Phuc gives you a complete experience of how it’s like noodles-chasing in South East Asia minus the sweat. This is not your typical food review. Come see why.

Taste of Japan – Part I


Sorry I have been MIA for a while. In the last two weeks, I have changed job, moved home and recovered from stress-induced chocolate-bingeing trauma. But all’s good now and here’s the first of my many articles about the Land of the Rising Sun – starting with a (ramen long) introductory post about “Taste of Japan”! I will try to catch up in the next couple of days. Till then, please control your tempura and be patient with me.

Thank you so mochi!

Brunch at the Iconic Hotel Le Fouquet’s

Le Fouquet's 15

What to do on a Sunday in Paris where most shops are close and you don’t want to shop for items with marked up prices in blood-sucking touristy zones? I have just the right place for you to start this sacred day marking the end of your very hectic week – shopping, champagne-sipping and being glamorously lost in Paris. Brunch at Le Fouquet’s. The iconic, luxurious and everybody-knows Le Fouquet’s.

Sanukiya – The Best Udon Slurping Experience in Paris


From the outside, Sanukiya looks just like another unassuming Asian eatery in Europe. But what makes the shop stand out quite immediately is the endless queue of noodle-slurpers waiting eagerly at its door. On the inside, Japanese waitresses in orange T-shirts moved skilfully through the narrow lane between an open kitchen and a stretch of table along the wall. Reason for all the above? Come have a slurp of this udon.
