After a week in Bangkok it was time for us to explore the south of Thailand. Debeli was all about Bangkok’s street food, humidity, traffic chaos but I wanted to experience those white sand beautiful tropic beaches.
Wherever we travel, we try to have some of the traditional and typical dishes of the region / city we’re in. Sometimes this turns into something completely different like when we were in Bangkok, where we visited an Indian restaurant, that has been named No 1 restaurant in Asia in 2018. No 5th in the world.
I’m a sweet girl, wouldn’t you agree? And I have a sweet tooth. Or to be honest 28 and a half so it was only fair to dedicate the entire post just to desserts.
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!
