Happy to say, I really like Peruvian food. Here are some snapshots of what I’ve been eating.
Here’s a Friday slice of life. Bon Appétit!
One of the last things I expected to find in Vietnam was Bob! Yet, here he is.
A quick look at some of the stuff I’ve been eating for the past couple weeks here in Saigon.
No guarantees on how much MSG you’re getting, but for around $4, nothing beats the variety of Singapore’s large hawker centers like this one.
After several bites, I said something about the squid and Queenie said, “That’s not squid.” I can’t explain how it suddenly tasted bad – like slightly-spoiled meat – but it did.
If you have 7 minutes, you can go to lunch with me by clicking here.
The term “Tex-Mex” would be more accurate here, but I’ll take what I can get. While I won’t be sitting down to chiles rellenos or tamales anytime soon, Taco Loco filled the Tex-Mex shaped hole in my belly last night. I found El Taco Loco at #4 on this list, located close by, at the …
In her interview, Chip mentioned “laksa” as something she misses most about Singapore. If you’re like me, you thought, “(Latka?) No wait…what’s ‘laksa’?”
Dan and I went to Life Cafe in SoHo, right in the middle of the mid-levels escalator.

Went out for Kat’s birthday to a “Hot Pot” place in Causeway Bay.
On the way to work I’ve been picking up a $1.50 fruit cup. This is watermelon, cantaloupe and dragon fruit, which I’d never heard of until I came here. Tastes something like a pear or honeydew. A tiny bit like a kiwi. A more revealing pic of dragon fruit I grabbed of the internet:
Went to La Crêperie for lunch today for breton galettes (thin buckwheat pancakes with various toppings). It’s right around the corner from work: G/F, 69 Jervois St., Sheung Wan. Look, Rico came with us! (And he let me photograph his lunch.) I learned the phrase, “sek TSI la-lay” which is not at all polite, so don’t do …
My coworkers have an app that sends certain local lunch menus to their phones. Today’s looked like this: They tell me in basic terms what the choices are and we order lunch. Today Rico explained, “This one’s fried fish… this one’s chicken chest…”
Last night Ian and I went to an enormous mall called IFC not too far from our hotel and ate at a Thai place there called Greyhound. Spent about $38 each. I forgot to take pics of the food except for one dish. (I’ll try and do better.) After Ian spent 15 minutes looking at …
