I love this hidden speakeasy in the heart of the wet market in Central, 001. They have by far the best grilled cheese I’ve ever had. Recently they revamped the entire menu, as well their grilled cheese. Thank goodness- its still a winner! Yum.

The Principal’s (post) amazing set menu. This Wagyu, burnt onion, water cress, maxim potato blew my mind- the lamb was another winning dish, as well as pretty much anything else on the menu.

Lets take it back to Taipei (posts), for one of the BEST omakase meals I’ve had at Kitcho. The picture above is definitely one of the most interesting dishes I’ve had. A shot of live, swimming, clear fishes. It squirms, and twists down your throat. Would you guys try this?!

I definitely took for granted living in the States– because this Double Double In n Out Burger along with animal style fries has been on my mind ALL year. Double beef patty, cheese and grilled onions. OH MY.

Technically, I ventured to CHINO, located in Kennedy Town in 2015…BUT this place is BOMB. Go here for some delicious gourmet Mexican/Japanese fusion inspired dishes. This chicken & egg tostada is so simple, fresh, and flavourful.
