Back in Hanoi Where it all Began

By | 4 Comments

In May 2014 we set off on our first long-term adventure, 7 months travelling through South East Asia and on to New Zealand. We started that trip by flying straight into Hanoi and it was a hot, crazy, noisy, intense sensory overload, where our love affair with Vietnamese food began. Returning two and a half years later we were intrigued…

What better way to finish off five months in Latin America than a few days in Mexico City. We had three things to tick off the list – sampling the delicious street food, visiting Arena Mexico to watch some Lucha Libre wrestling and a trip to the pyramids of Teotihuacan.

You may have noticed we haven’t posted as much about food on this trip. Sadly, apart from Ceviche, the cuisine in South America just didn’t live up to the standards of Asia and it was so unhealthy! At first it seems great but a few weeks of eating only fried food and carbs with absolutely no flavour in any dish…

By | 2 Comments

We were excited to come to Penang, mainly because of its reputation for great street food. Anyone we’d spoken to or anything we’d read online raved about the hawker stalls and food courts. And it hasn’t let us down. Compared to street food elsewhere in Asia this place is on another level. We have also made a new discovery…the joy…

Char Koay Teow

By | 2 Comments

Just down the road from our hotel is Kimberly Street, where in the evening dozens of Hawkers set up their stalls. Right outside Sin Guat Keong Coffee Shop is a Char Koay Teow stall – rice noodles fried up with shrimp, egg, beansprouts and chilli.
