When Winny and I decided to travel extensively this year, there is one budget we kept to the minimal and that is the food budget. In total we only spent less than $2500 AUD per person for a whole year on food and we did spend some time in expensive places and countries like Iceland and Scandinavia region. One of key to eat on a budget is to cook when and where it is possible and appropriate.
This was my third time in Barcelona and we thought it would be nice to find a good value Barcelona Michelin lunch. From the Michelin Guide’s Official Website we found that there are 26 restaurants in Barcelona awarded Michelin stars. Many of these Michelin restaurants offers good value Michelin lunch sets so we look a little further to find one with the best value.
During our four months tour of South America, we arrived at the Capital of Peru, Lima, also known as the Gastronomic Capital of South America. We have been travelling on a budget for over two months now, but we have booked a restaurant, ranked fourth best in the world, before we have even left Australia. This restaurant is called Central Restaurante.
Greek cuisine is essentially Mediterranean cuisine which is known to be one of the healthiest diet in the world! Food in Santorini is no different. Their meals have in abundance of olive oil, herbs, lemon juice, vegetables, fish, wines and various meats. In this article I will recommend some food in Santorini that can’t be missed!
In October 2015 we took Qantas flight QF8425 in conjunction with Emirates from Perth to Istanbul on Boeing 777. The first part of the journey from Perth to Dubai took 10 hours 55 minutes. This was my first time changing my meal to “Emirates Low Fat & Low Cholesterol” option.
Coal Cellar + Grill is a new restaurant opened in Hilton Adelaide recently. As the name suggested, Coal Cellar + Grill serves a lot of grill meat and uses many traditional Australia native ingredients. However We decided that the mains they serve looked more quite unique and we thought we might give the Grill a miss this time. We ordered four different entrées and three different types of mains.
Ramen & Izakaya Himeji is opened by the same owners as Genki Japanese restaurant, the only restaurant that makes half decent ramen in Adelaide, so we had really high expectations for it. Almost as soon as Ramen & Izakaya Himeji was open for business, we made a reservation and we popped in for lunch.
Mexican Society of Chinatown is a new establishment opened by the same owners of Hispanic Mechanic. It is meant to be a Mexican & Chinese fusion restaurant, which is an interesting concept.
Before visiting Turkey, the only Turkish food I knew were Kebab and Pide (Turkish Pizza). After researching on what to eat in Istanbul, I have discovered a wide variety of food that Turkey has to offer. Below is a list of what to eat in Istanbul and in order of what I think is MUST-EAT as it is probably quite hard to find outside this country. Although I did not realize most are desserts!
I must admit Turkish Delights were never my thing. They were just pink, soft sweets with pungent artificial rose smell. It wasn’t until we made our way to the original store that invented Turkish Delights “Haci Bekir”. That’s when I feel in love with these sweets.
