2016 Singapore Best Eats

I can’t believe it’s already the 7th of January. Only two days left until we return to Sweden. The weather has been quite brutal there, down to minus 20 degrees Celsius and snow. Think about it, going from plus thirty to minus twenty. Brutal! Anyway, as our time in Singapore is still fresh in my mind, I thought I would recap with some of my favorite eats from this (last) years trip. It is quite funny, we ate almost everything but Singaporean food, and kept away from all starred restaurants. Very unlike us, but a good choice I think. With the newly established Guide de Michelin in Singapore, prices for the winners have skyrocketed. And I thought they were quite high to start with. Continue reading “2016 Singapore Best Eats”

Mikkeller Around the World

We have this weird habit: everywhere we travel, we always end up visiting a Mikkeller-bar. Unplanned. It’s an odd habit, especially when we travel in Asia, as it is something available in Stockholm and all over the Nordics. However, there is something fun about “collecting” the locations. There is usually only one Mikkeller bar in a city (with the exception of Copenhagen). Mikkeller is a Danish brewery making a wide range of delicious craft beers. The founders, former math teacher Mikkel Borg Bjergsø and journalist Kristian Klarup Keller started experimenting with hops in their own kitchens, now Mikkeller is exporting their products to 50 countries all over the world. Mikkeller is internationally acclaimed as one of the most innovative and cutting edge brewers in the world. We really like the beers, even the non-alcoholic ones.

Wineweek 113: Singapore in a Nutshell

In Finland, we have a saying – new year, new tricks. More concretely, we have today traveled from Singapore to Bangkok for the last leg of our annual trip. What started in Bangkok, will end in Bangkok. Seven full days to discover what is new in the city that have loved since the first time I set foot in it. The first round in Bangkok was just to slack off and to sleep off the jet lag, so we left all the new goodies to the coming week. I think definitely this will be the best part of our trip. I don’t like dwelling on last year, but since I took some photos, we can have a quick look back on our week in Singapore. It was filled with good food, coffee and some yummy cocktails.
