If you’ve read my two previous posts, you’ll know by now that my wife and I recently flew down to Sydney for a very short but food-intense vacation. In fact, we only had three nights […]
Ever since our son was old enough to travel, my wife and I have been bringing him on an annual trip to Kyoto. It’s a vacation we look forward to every year. The city is […]
Any person who reads my posts on this site regularly would know that when my wife and I travel, our itineraries are based on where we are going to eat. We plan our meals first, […]
When Chef Julien Royer recently departed from JAAN, the restaurant at the top floor of Raffles City, a lot of foodie friends started to prematurely cross this eatery off their lists of great gourmet places […]
The Upper House, Hong Kong launched some six years ago to a great deal of buzz. I remember feeling quite intoxicated just sitting in one of the sexy, semi-private Andre Fu designed private alcoves overlooking […]
If you’ve met any of our nation’s foodies in the last two weeks, the question on everyone’s lips is: have you been to Bread Street Kitchen? Gordon Ramsay’s buzzy London eatery made its Singapore debut […]
Shanghai is my very favourite city in China, and I’d even go as far to say that I prefer it to Hong Kong in many ways. As some of you would have read from Joanna’s posts, Shanghai is indeed a city that is full of much yet-unexplored discoveries and is perpetually brimming with energy, and I like to find any excuse to visit. When it’s for work, it’s usually in and out, with hopefully a nice meal or two squeezed in. When it’s play, I often zero in on a few choice destinations. During a recent play visit over a long weekend, I visited my usual fave spots, and explored a couple of new ones.
Last week, I wrote a little bit about Point Yamu, a newish ultra-luxe property in Phuket opened by COMO Hotels and Resorts. In that post, I said that Point Yamu is my and my wife’s new favourite resort. One of the chief reasons for that is the stunning food. I’m trying my best not to oversell things too much, but I simply have to say that I can’t remember staying in a hotel or resort in which every single meal was as amazing as they were at Point Yamu. To put it as simply as possible, it is — to me at least, right now — the best place in Southeast Asia for an all-inclusive foodie vacation.
When I received word that Bochinche was going through a bit of a rebrand with a more accessible menu and a small gourmet market, I was excited. Argentine food isn’t easily found in Singapore but knowing how palatable and full of flavour the cuisine can be, I thought it was high time that we got a little more serious about our Argentine food education. And who better to give us the low down than Bochinche’s Chef Patron, Diego Jacquet.
