Tapas with Hang

I was lucky enough to spend my Christmas and New Years in Thailand this past year and even more lucky when Hang was able to fly down from Vietnam to join me for New Years in Bangkok.  We did not get to go on as many culinary adventures as we would have liked to, mostly…

Breakfast at the KAfe

I got back to Hanoi after Bangkok to warm weather and a fresh breakfast date with my friend visiting from Ho Chi Minh city. It was a beautiful Sunday morning and I was driving slowly as what that hot guy Adam Levine from Maroon 5 told me to. Today we are heading to the KAfe.…

A taste of Japan in Nairobi

If you’ve ever been to Nairobi one thing you may have noticed is there is no shortage of Japanese restaurants, they are not everywhere but they are there.  Some are good some are not,  the one at the Junction mall (if it’s still there), upstairs near the casino, was really good the last time I…
