In late 2012, I was researching for a fine-dining dinner in Bangkok with Katherine and Andrew, and came across this restaurant proclaiming to serve “Progressive Indian” cuisine. Intrigued, I made a reservation, knowing little how amazed I’ll be at the end of that evening’s culinary experience.

Menu bookThat restaurant was Gaggan. Fast forward to 2015, it is now N0.1 on San Pellegrino Asia’s 50 Best Restaurants, and Top 10 on the World’s Best Restaurants; alongside illustrious names like El Celler de Can Roca of Girona, Spain; Rene Redzepi’s Noma in Copenhagen; Massimo Bottura’s Osteria Francescana in Modena, Italy; and Daniel Humm and Will Guidara’s Eleven Madison Park in New York. It’s about time too, as Gaggan is one of the most exciting restaurants I’ve chanced upon in recent years.

At Gaggan with Chef OwnerChef Anand, extreme right.

Chef Gaggan Anand is a very talented man, and friendly too (he says Gaggan is the probably the…

The Pelican Seafood Bar & Grill -Perfect execution and fun service!

The Pelican Seafood Bar & Grill

One Fullerton near Raffles Place MRT

DSC_0755Loving it already the moment we set our feet into The Pelican Seafood Bar as you would be greeted first with a showy, gaudy bar counter while not going unnoticed, how this restaurant is laced with the comfy cushion fitted seats. A wide angle photo beckons upon such a beautiful interior. And what makes it an even lovelier dining experience, is how personal the service is rendered over here at Pelican. Fun, chatty, not superficial yet not at all intrusive, this could perhaps be one of the better services we’ve come across so far in our dining escapades as you know they sincerely want you to enjoy your time here.

DSC_0781DSC_0779We didn’t come here just for desserts but pardon me to start off with this decadent blob of Whoopie Pie first! Not exactly for the faint hearted but definitely THE…

Evening at Kamala Sports Club

Kamala Sports Club is one of my favorite place to go for drinks and a good time when in Kamala.

Located in Kamala Phuket Island Thailand on the main road between Patong and Surin running along the coast.  Easy to find and next to a 7/11 and a traffic light.  With tables outside and plenty inside with 2 pool tables and very friendly staff. Drinks are reasonable and girls friendly. Plenty of expats come here so always a nice place to meet new friends. They no longer serve food but lot of drinks!

Wrap & Roll

Changi City Point near Expo MRT

Wrap n rollYes, you’ve heard it right. Wrap & Roll, a Vietnamese chain in Sg, will be launching a new semi fine-dining Vietnamese menu soon. Not only that, at the price of $88, wine lovers will get the chance to binge freely on the limitless pourings of wine that have been thoughtfully paired with each different course. From the lighter appetisers to the heavier mains, the wine paired also gets progressively darker. Lets have a glimpse at the menu.

weaver ants

Weaver ants or green ants (genus Oecophylla) are eusocial insects of the family Formicidae (order Hymenoptera)

 I first became familiar with weaver ants when wanting kill them with insecticide was told by Thai friends not to that as they were good to eat even though they were destroying my fence.  They do have a sweet smell when crushed with the fingers.

Peter's Big Adventure

I’m going to kick this off with a pet peeve of mine. When people talk about places they visit, I’ve almost never heard a bad review. Ever. About anywhere. It’s weird, but it’s kind of politically incorrect to say that a place sucks. But even beyond that, it’s also a downer, which nobody wants to hear. When people ask “how are you?” I have found that they rarely actually want to know. It’s just a greeting. But let’s be real here: sometimes I’m not doing so well. And not every place I visit is amazing.

Varanasi is a place that should have been amazing. It was beautiful, it was interesting, it was a place unlike anything I’ve ever seen before. But when I think back on it, I don’t think about that. I think about the endless conga line of assholes that tried to rip me off so shamelessly. I’ll…
