By luck, we stumbled upon Katsukichi Botaijyu Tonkatsu in Shibuya, and it turned out to be a gem!
The restaurant is located in the basement. The wooden stairs will lead you to a very traditional and cosy-looking space that will instantly give you a good feel about your meal.
In short, tonkatsu is a Japanese-style pork chop or cutlet and we are always up for a good tonkatsu meal. There are several outlets in Tokyo but here’s sharing our experience from the Shibuya one.

For those of you who have small appetites or just need something small to munch on before your next meal, boat noodles are a perfect meal option. Tiny yet incredibly hearty and substantial, don’t underestimate these little bowls of goodness that pack a powerful punch.
There are multiple places in Bangkok that serve up decent bowls of boat noodles but one of our absolute favourites is Lung Prathunam Boat Noodle. Located right smack in the middle of bustling Pratunam, its convenient location makes it a great pitstop for ravenous shopaholics who need to refuel after a tiring day of shopping.
If you’ve never been to Katong in Singapore, perhaps it’s time to take a trip down to the well-known Peranakan enclave in the East. Contrary to popular belief, it has a lot more than just laksa.
Although Katong has now evolved into a more modern residential and commercial area, the district is still full of Peranakan influences which can be seen in its architecture as well as the food offerings available.
With hipster cafés popping up all over our sunny island, we are simply spoilt for choice. Do you knoow that the North-East is home to a plethora of cafés — from crowd-favourite gelato and waffle parlours to floral-themed establishments reminiscent of a garden from a fairytale?

Forgo your neighbourhood bak chor mee stall — here are some of the food gems from Serangoon to Punggol you have to visit!
In the more popular areas of our bustling city, finding a place to eat alone and away from the constant stream of people can be quite a challenge. While going solo is not uncommon elsewhere in the world, in a collectivistic society like ours, there is an innate social pressure associated with eating by yourself.
Even though there are a multitude of places to choose from, here is the catch: in a country where dining alone tends to be frowned upon, life is that much harder when looking for a meal option away from the judging eyes of fellow diners. To help our fellow hermits out there, here are 11 food places in Singapore for solo diners.
You may have tried many different renditions of Bak Kut Tehs in Singapore – ones with herbal soup bases or ones with spicy white pepper stock. Well, for those who love this homey, heart-warming clay pot of soup, we have great news for you – Restoran Kota Zheng Zong Claypot Bak Kut Teh has opened in Singapore at Holland Village!
This popular Johor Bahru-based restaurant started from humble roots, beginning as a mere push-cart. With over 40 years of experience and cooking their special herbal Bak Kut Teh over a charcoal flame, they are undoubtedly one of the best Bak Kut Teh restaurants in Malaysia.
We had a taste of their dishes including their Signature Claypot Bak Kut Teh, Braised Pork Leg and their White Pepper Pig’s Maw Soup. Check out what are the dishes you can look forward to at the new Kota Zheng Zong Bak Kut Teh Singapore.
It is no secret that Bangkok is a night market paradise that has something for everyone. Even if you aren’t a diehard shopaholic, Bangkok’s night market scene has everything from food to entertainment to services, making it a versatile destination that should be at the top of everyone’s itinerary.

For the full local experience and significantly smaller crowds, here is a list of 11 less known night markets in Bangkok that you can visit on your next trip to the land of smiles.
