Review: Kopitiam

nasi lemak kopitiam

Been craving for Malaysian/Singaporean food for sometime now and so glad to find Kopitiam!

Dublin is fast becoming a city with a diverse taste. All thanks to the growing numbers of migrants entering the city. But these developments did not happen overnight. My husband often tells me the food scene in Dublin when heĀ  arrived more than 10 years ago is nothing compared to what we have right now. And even so, I still feel as if there are certain cuisines I am missing over here!

Suddenly missing Seoul: Drunken Fish wedding anniversary dinner!

drunken fish

We recently celebrated our fifth wedding anniversary! Woot! So, off we went to have dinner at Drunken Fish..

Let me begin by saying that this is not a thorough restaurant review of Drunken Fish – a Korean restaurant in the IFSC area in Dublin. We’ve been here countless times before and have eaten more “familiar” Korean dishes. But, this is the first time we visited the place after our recent Seoul trip. We went here on one of the rare sunny and warm weeknights in Ireland. And, also to celebrate our wedding anniversary!

Review: ML Chinese Restaurant

A late post, but let me share with you where we went for Mother’s Day..

Chinese food is one of my husband’s comfort food. But even if this is mostly my husband’s “thing” I also miss the occasional yang chow fried rice or Schezuan-based dishes quality Chinese restaurants around Dublin has to offer!
Similar to the years before, we celebrated Mother’s Day last May. We’ve grown accustomed to this because this is when we celebrate Mother’s Day in the Philippines. So, we decided to keep what we know!

Errands + Lunch at Yamamori!

Had a mini celebration lunch at Yamamori along the Quays..

There’s a lot of things going on in our household over the past weeks. I don’t want to divulge anything at the moment until everything’s settled, though. But let’s just say that things are progressing quite nicely.

Dongdaemun Stroll!

Why did we miss to go around Dongdaemun area when we visited last April?!

Let’s say that I am having some Seoul withdrawal symptoms recently. For the past weeks, I have been reminiscing on our experiences in Seoul. And, wish that it is far easier to go back than it is now!

Review: Siam Thai Restaurant

Been a while since I had Thai food! So we decided to go visit Siam – a Thai restaurant in Dundrum shopping center

Dundrum shopping center is one of our go-to places when we want to have a “different day” on a weekend. Because it is quite far from where we live, we often stay there for the entire day. We usually go there early in the morning. And then, let our son play in a play cafe inside the shopping center, have lunch, and just roam around the mall while my son takes his nap.

Best Korean Foods to Try in Seoul

korean foods

I miss Seoul! And, definitely miss these top Korean foods..

I am definitely feeling the “Seoul hangover” vibe. If only it is easy to book the next plane ticket available to go to Seoul – I’d do that in a heartbeat. And, to be honest, I’d go anywhere to take a mini break these days, too!
Shopping aside, Korean food is one of the things I enjoyed while we were in Seoul. Kimchi is a normal side dish I often stuff my face with, which I have grown to love a lot more during the trip! So, just imagine I have probably tried all sorts of variants (and shapes!) of this famous Korean side-dish.

Top things I enjoyed in Seoul!

Changdeokgung

I still think about Seoul. So, let me share the best experiences I’ve had while in there!

Our recent trip to Seoul went by so fast – I wish I could easily go back again! Time flies when you’re having fun – as they say, right?
We spent about 2 weeks in Seoul but I still feel as if I haven’t been around much. Probably because we encountered a couple of challenges traveling with a toddler (you can read a related post here) around Seoul. So, we had to change plans sometimes!

Review: Makati Avenue

makati avenue

On my little one’s birthday, we went to Makati Avenue for an early lunch!

This is one of my super late posts! Apart from lacking time to write, there are a lot more important posts I felt must be published first before this. But as they say, “it is better late than never!
I posted about my little one’s birthday celebration over here. My son turned three but we didn’t arrange any parties for him. We felt that apart from the expense – he won’t appreciate it that much yet! He is still developing his social skills and doesn’t really care about other kids his age. So planning a party may not be the most practical thing to do.

Review: Duck

Badly craving for some noodles topped with roasted duck, alright

Back in the days when I was living in Singapore, eating HongKong-style noodles topped with roasted duck was one of my comfort foods. I love the simplicity of the food not to mention it is super cheap over there, too!
However, after relocating here, I didn’t find any that does it the way I got used to. Of course, we had the very common chow mien when dining in Chinese restaurants in the city but sometimes, simplicity is the key to finding good food.
