Crab Factory. Little Paris. Bandar Jaya Putra. Johor JB

Crab-Factory-Little-Paris-Bandar-Jaya-Putra-Johor-JB

When I visited the newly opened Crab Factory outlet near Mount Austin, Johor Bahru, I came with a bit of scepticism. Isn't the fancy fad on the wane already? But, after eating at Crab Factory, I changed my mind. Now, I feel that Louisiana seafood boil can be as mainstream as chili crab and salted egg crab - if, you do it as well as Crab Factory, that is.

Bak Kwa 肉乾 or BBQ pork slices is extremely well loved in Singapore, and is the most popular food gift of visitors to the sunny island. Many Singaporeans also take along bak kwa as gifts when they visit friends and family overseas. During Chinese New Year, Singaporeans queue for hours to buy bak kwa for the holidays.

Giverny‘s-Kitchen-Taichung-吉凡尼的私房小廚

During our visit to Taichung (Taiwan), I was a little surprised that our first stop wasn't any traditional Chinese restaurant as I had expected but a chef's table, featuring modern French cuisine at that. It turned out to be a great experience - life is full of unexpected delights like that 😄
