Debeli has always been fascinated with Thai cuisine, ever since he started to work professionally. At the beginning of his cooking career he was working with a Thai chef who infected him with soy sauce. Like literally, because Debeli ended in the ER after his body couldn’t digest high levels of MSG or monosodium glutamate (a flavor enhancer with an umami taste), so he dehydrated and had to be fed with a tube).
Remember the movie?
Former capital of the Kingdom of Siam is some 50 miles from Bangkok so that makes it a perfect one day trip.
Our three weeks in Thailand started, and ended in Bangkok.
Eating in Rome was so decadent, that the old Romans would be ashamed. This whole trip was purely about the food. About finding the best and the traditional dishes. On our list there was cacio e pepe, suppli, trippa alla romana and so much more.
Rome may be cliché but actually is all you need. It’s art and food. What more do you need, right?
Debeli is a huge lover and worshiper of both whiskey and beer, so I was thinking of visiting either Jameson distillery or Guinness brewery while in Dublin. What I didn’t know then was that the production of Jameson has been transferred to Cork and that Guinness storehouse is more about selling the merchandise than showing you the real process of brewing. However, what we did at the end, it turned out to be even better!
Dining offer in the capital of the Republic of Ireland is somewhat wider than Belfast, but just because Dublin is a bigger and more economically developed city. On the other hand, a bigger and wider offer doesn’t always mean it’s better, but it’s definitely worth a visit.
Northern Irish cuisine is quite similar to the British or to that of the Republic of Ireland. In the past, the basic diet of average Northern Ireland man was bread and potatoes. The limited choice of foods and non-existing influence of international cuisine resulted with a poor and uncreative culinary offer.
Even before arriving to Ireland, I knew that we would have to ”out of” the city to see the beautiful irish nature, so I booked a tour to the Cliffs 🙂
