Review: Yeon Ga Korean Restaurant

Korean food is something that I have come to really enjoy of late, which is funny considering Sydney is a bit of a hub of Korean food activity not Phnom Penh! But despite this, Mick and I live just around the corner from our own little “Korea-town” on Sotheros Blvd. Amongst the massage parlors, karaoke […]

Review: Sofitel Phokeethra Christmas Brunch

This Christmas, Mick and I decided to take the bull by its horns and splurge on a feast at the Sofitel Phokeethra in Phnom Penh. We wanted to experience a buffet of international standard, drink as much wine as we could fit in our bellies and have a grand old time with our friends while […]

Review: Noodle Shop on St. 294

Noodles, yum noodles! There are many great places to eat in Phnom Penh serving everything from up-market Asian fusion to hearty German dishes to spicy Thai and of course all the Khmer food. But sometimes you find a spot that just serves exactly what you are craving. Mick and I believe that this shop has […]

Review: Dessert Lady on St. 9

We are lucky enough to live very close to a dessert lady who offers a number of tantalising sweeties for those nights when grilled chicken doesn’t cut the mustard. She has a limited but popular supply of desserts ranging from bowls of sticky tapioca with banana or pumpkin, mung bean custard, baked egg custard, coconut […]

Review: Sovanna Restaurant

BBQ meat – check. Stir fried veg – check. Cheap beer – check. Sovana Restaurant has something for everyone –  From the basic fried rice, veggies and grilled meat dishes to more exotic dishes such as roasted bees, ant larvae and raw crab salads. And you know its good because it is packed every night […]

Review: Yok Yor

As most of you would assume, Mick and I love Thai food. LOVE LOVE Thai food. Interestingly, this is a relatively new thing for me, having only developed this obsession since actually living in Thailand. Prior to that, I was not a fan. It would take a lot to get me to eat a green curry […]

Paleo/Primal/Real-Food Eating Update

So its been quite a while since Mick and I embarked on our new way of eating/living and I figured its about time for an update. I think we are sitting pretty at 75 days since we started eating better, cutting out crap and enjoying life some more. Sounds schmalzy I know, but hey, its […]

Review: Free Style Cafe (now closed)

Go back a few years to 2009… Mick and I first decided to pack our bags and head to Thailand  in search of an adventure, and to volunteer at an organisation who worked with Burmese refugees (specifically Shan) who were in Chiang Mai. This was an incredible, challenging and at times very hard assignment but […]

Moving

After 6 months of living in our old condo on Nimmanhaemin Soi 12, we decided it was time to ramp things up a bit and find somewhere with a bit more…uhh…space. Our old place was great – 1 bed apartment, thai style ‘kitchen’ and bathroom, views over the Chiang Mai University Agricultural gardens, close to […]

Review: North China Dumpling Restaurant

I am a sucker for a dumpling. Especially the northern chinese-style fried dumplings. OH MAN. I love the crispy base and the chewy top. I love the really yummy vinegar and chilli that you dunk them in before eating. Mmmm! This love had been largely ignored while we have been back in Chiang Mai. But […]
