Asian snacks & desserts at Foo concepts, Rotterdam

If you love food and you have been to Asia, you know there is a lot of diversity, but also interesting snacks and desserts. Do you like matcha flavour and have you tried egg waffles before? More and more cafes are serving Asian desserts and snacks here in the Netherlands. One of them is Foo Concepts. They opened their cafe in July 2017 and they have matcha and egg waffles! I have already visited them many times. Since they opened they keep developing their menu and experiment with different flavours. Foo concepts is an Asian fusion lifestyle cafe situated on the Hoogstraat in Rotterdam. This street is full of restaurants, little shops and cafes. I hardly come on this street, so...

Must-try desserts in China

When it comes to finding yummy sweets and desserts in China, my inner self would nod yes and say just take it because I will not find it back in the Netherlands (unless I am desperate enough to want the packaged powdered ones and make it myself). The most popular Chinese desserts actually come from Guangdong and there are many variations that can be served hot or cold. During my times in China, I made sure I visited enough dessert shops such as Hui Lau Shan, Honeymoon Desserts and others :). I have compiled my top 8 Chinese desserts since sharing is caring and you might end up liking them as much as I do ?. 1. 西米露 Xī mǐ lù...

안녕하세요 Annyeong haseyo! by Wahwah

안녕하세요 Annyeong haseyo!  As a guest blogger I am excited to share one of my beautiful experiences during my stay in Asia. So here we go… LET’S GO TO SEOUL! Many friends said I was crazy to choose to go to Korea over all those warm places in Asia during the winter. They said “It’s freezing”, “all the attractions are outside”, “it’s not beautiful in the winter”, “and it isn’t that exciting”.  It was true, it was ice cold! However, don’t underestimate how much warmth the city Seoul can bring you in a cold winter. I stayed with seven other friends in Hongdae area, which is a perfect place to stay. Streets in the evening were filled with people and lightning, which...

The Goobne Chicken in Hong Kong

We were on a food hunting mission to find something tasty and filling before heading out to Repulse Bay for the beach, and we came across Goobne Chicken on the Openrice app (the food app in Hong Kong). The app and reviews described this place's chickens as "non-fried and healthy chicken pieces marinated with seven kinds of spices” so how could we resist tasty yet healthy food if it is here! The restaurant was pretty easy to find despite it was on the second floor. We  didn't have to circle around in the neighborhood much before we could find it as there was a giant sign stating 'GOOBNE CHICKEN' on that building. When we walked in, we took notice of the...

Poké? Yes Please!

If you are here because you thought this would be a Pokémon story, I am sorry ?. But, hey, don’t be too disappointed yet, because we are talking about healthy, delicious and affordable food this time!! It’s been a while since we discussed food matters on the channel, but the last few weeks have been pretty hectic… Hint: posts about Barcelona, Guangzhou, Hong Kong, and more are coming up very very soon ?? ?? Last month, Poké Bowl has opened its store in Rotterdam at the Hoogstraat and since then I have visited three times. Ever heard of Poké? Yup look at that picture down here, that is a poké bowl. It was not until recently that I heard about this concept. My opinion? Whoever invented...

Japanese desserts in London

If you have read our previous post about London you would know that we were in Chinatown in Soho. We have tried out quite some Chinese restaurants in the area since travelling with Chinese parents means that at least one meal a day had to be Asian food (only rice can make the stomach happy haha).  The funny story is how we came across this Japanese café. To reach Chinatown, we have to cross this wide street with no pedestrian crossing nearby, which was in our opinion one of the scariest things we did in London (no kidding, our heartbeats would fasten every time we cross over). To recover from the shock, we would take a little break from walking to...

Insanitea, anyone?

The sun is shining brighter than ever and the temperature is slowly increasing, thus we can finally say summer is here! We thought we will share with you a location in Rotterdam where we hang out very often, that is YoYo! Fresh Tea Bar. YoYo has three locations in Rotterdam, one nearby the Central Station, one at Rodezand (close to where V&D used to be), and one in the Markthal. Besides Rotterdam, they also have locations in Amsterdam, The Hague and even South-Korea! What is so special about YoYo? BUBBLE TEA. Do I need to say more? Besides that they sell my favourite drink, their stores always have a nice atmosphere. Their cute interior makes it the perfect place to sit down...

First time Caribbean food in Rotterdam

You know what amazed us a lot? When we coincidentally stumbled across a Caribbean restaurant one night while we were on our way home. We literally stopped and stared at the name board that has an Aruban flag painted along the “Taberna Dushi”. Without hesitation, we told each other that we should definitely visit this place one day and taste the nostalgic Caribbean food, which we haven’t had for a long time! We wanted to lunch there but found out they were only open from 17:00 till 22:00 when we arrived at the place. It was such a failure because we were longing for some Caribbean food, but we returned for dinner when it was exactly 5 o’clock to satisfy our...
