The Clove Club

Dining at The Clove Club, a restaurant/bar located in the Shoreditch Town Hall in London, has been on top of our todo list for quite a while. We’ve read about  their creative, yet down-to-earth, British cuisine made with mainly local ingredients (and some discreetly intertwined Japanese influences).

Not really because of the raving reviews & tweets, but because we’ve been salivating over the luscious pages of their book for quite some time.

Markthalle 9, Berlin

While in Berlin for a short weekend, I happened to visit a very cool local market in Kreuzberg, Markthalle IX. Opened in 1891, it’s one of the last historic markets in Berlin that stood the test of time. The architecture of the hall is very open, with large spaces and thin metal pillars to hold […]

Indonesian Food – North Sulawesi

We haven’t updated the blog for a while as we’ve (finally!!!) had some vacations! Time to relax, read, and obviously eat! Where were we? In Indonesia. North Sulawesi to be more accurate, which is the northern tip of a huge island between Borneo, Philippines, and West Papua. Because Indonesia is such a massive country spread over a few thousand […]

Chilli Chilli Bang Bang

Some like it hot. Others like it very *very* hot, and for those the CCBB festival was the place to be on the weekend of 09-10 May. The latest coup by the Street Feast London gang (who organised the London Street Feast and Hawker house, among others) was a piquant gathering of the most exciting […]
