For That Bowl of Ginseng Chicken Soup

Eating out can be such a social affair but there are times when you want to take a break from the kitchen, and yet do away with the small talk or networking over a fancy meal. Just some simple conversation and down-to-earth food would do… ever felt like that? It happened that I was having a pretty rough week –… Continue reading For That Bowl of Ginseng Chicken Soup

Mangiare in Italia – La Finale

All right, let’s just finish this off shall we? 😉 Despite being fed so well in Cinque Terre, I wasn’t expecting much from Milan, given that we just had a day there, and that this was the least-researched place out of our entire trip. So yes, we had our share of touristy restaurant meals but there… Continue reading Mangiare in Italia – La Finale

Mangiare in Italia – Part 1
