While we primarily ate on the streets, Bangkok is also a cosmopolitan world city — you can eat Thai food at fancy places, spend the evening at a wine bar, or have a nightcap at one of the many cocktail bars.
Bangkok has a street food life that doesn’t sleep. You can find vendors pretty much everywhere and at all hours selling savory foods, sweet foods, drinks and fruits. There are also many shophouses and trendy restaurants serving up Thai food. Opinions are to be had about whether street food or shophouses are better, but either way you won’t go hungry.
On our second visit to Thailand we spent time in Bangkok, the country’s most populous city.

Singapore is no stranger to specialty coffee. It has become increasingly easy to find a good cuppa. The city has also taken a liking to cocktails, and while the New York influence is inescapable, many of these "speakeasies" and cocktail bars bring their own originality, both to the cocktails and the space.
How can we talk about Singapore and not talk about hawker centers? Well, that’s kinda the point of this post. We love Singapore for the mix of fantastic hawker center fare and international cuisine from around the world. This time we want to highlight just the latter, from our most recent visits.

Cooking and eating breakfast at home every morning allows us to enter our day feeling a wee bit more relaxed and ensures quality time together doing something we love. Here are our favorite at home breakfasts.
This dish is a twist on mac n’ cheese, but made with quinoa, which lends an even creamier texture. We added tomatoes and basil to round out this quick and tasty recipe.
For highly original, creative food in a relaxed atmosphere, Contra in the Lower East Side is one of our favorite restaurants to go to. Our meal this visit was wonderful, and we also managed to chat with Diego, one of the sous chefs in the kitchen today.
There’s a little park in our neighborhood, where we end up eating most of our picnics, that’s tucked away between beautiful brownstones on treelined streets.
We love making tacos because, other than the obvious delicious factor, they’re so versatile. Below is a rough recipe of what we’ve come up with for our ideal breakfast taco.
Spring vegetables seem to have come and gone so quickly; however, we’ve been taking full advantage of all the other fruits and veggies available this time of year. Here are some ways we’ve put summer produce to use.
As a child, having lived only in cities in India, when someone asked me where in the world I'd like to go, Estonia firmed its way into my imagination before I had any conception of what I might want a place I visited to be like...
Meet one of our own; Max, Meghan's younger brother, a passionate chef.
As soon as we started eating this dish (at The Fatty Bao Restaurant in Bangalore, India) our minds began working on how we could improve upon it. Pretty soon we had an idea on how to make this dish at home, with our own twist.
