Naruto Taiyaki Honpo Hankyu Sannomiyaekimae 鳴門鯛燒本舗 阪急三宮駅前店 (Kobe, JAPAN) ★★★☆☆

As a city, Kobe doesn’t possess the great assortment of street food and snacks Osaka has to offer so it’s important for us to know where to pick our spot. Naruto Taiyaki Honpo (鳴門鯛燒 本舗) is among the areas I knew I had to see until we complete this trip. They have branches around Japan (Tokyo, Osaka, Kyoto, Kobe and Fukuoka) however since we already missed out on their renowned taiyaki back in Osaka and Kyoto, I had to make sure we didn’t miss out for the next time.

Like many taiyaki or fish-shaped waffle cakes out there in the current market, Naruto Taiyaki Honpo’s taiyaki also includes red bean paste filling.

This is almost too cute to eat (or to be consumed ). 

The pastry was not as flaky as I first thought but it worked rather well with the red bean paste made from sweetened red beans from Shumari Hokkaido (十勝). It tasted so much better than the one with runny sweet potato custard filling (yellow one on the menu).

Beach House Minimalism

A comfortable window seat underlines the view.

Cool white walls and a lofty roof elevation is offset by abundant wooden ceiling panels and beams.

Flames crackle within a modern fireplace, located right by the arm of the couch to ensure it is the hot spot of the home on a chilly afternoon. A bicycle shops firewood beside the cooker. Open shelves round the fireplace bring decoration and life to the room, giving the place a more welcoming and friendly ambiance.

Black framework around the shower offers definition inside the soft blue and cream bath decoration.

A black square coffee table stands by the nautical couch ensemble, pushing the style into the discipline of minimalism. A cosy knitted floor pouf adds texture and swings back the balance to cosy again.

Seating was sandwiched between two bookcases to make a reading nook at the window.

Dried blossoms complement a rustic wooden vanity in the restroom.
This can be a project built on contrast, carefully created by Cartelle Design. The youthful homeowners at Milan, Italy, introduced two very different tastes in interiors. The taste clash between the couple caused the design team needing to seek out a means to combine cool minimalism with comfy country house chic. It had been significant to the owners that the interior maintained that special summer house on the lake type of feel, so it was decided that warm natural wood and soft texturing will be teamed with chilly technological performance. The outcome is bright space that is crisp with practicality, yet seasoned with charming beach home touches and character.

Kids’ wall decor gives the space a colourful and enjoyable feel.

Stunning mountain views wait beyond a set of patio doors which lead out onto a balcony. A white dining room dividers light extends out from the wall; this is an original fixture that has been set up in this house at the end of the 1960s by former owners. The light was preserved as a linking element between the present and past.

The normal toned mirror framework contrasts warmly against the cold gray concrete walls and shower enclosure.

Paste (Bangkok, THAILAND) ★★★☆☆

My little nugget is off to Kidzania this afternoon so I got myself around two hours of free time to spend. I opted to spend it wisely; after making a nostalgic return to Erawan Bakery in Grand Hyatt Erawan Hotel, it was time to see Paste Bangkok, a Michelin starred and Asia Greatest 50 Restaurant famous for the heirloom Thai cuisine.

Behind husband-and-wife group Jason Bailey and Bongkoch’Bee’ Satongun, Paste had a banner year in 2018. After shooting the elusive original Michelin celebrity , Chef Bee was honored as Asia’s Greatest Female Chef of 2018 by Asia’s 50 Best Restaurants.

Paste is all about a research in Thailand’s rich culinary history. The duo spent decades analyzing and researching ancient imperial Thai recipes and family cookbooks. Throughout the process, they re-discovered century-old recipes and long forgotten methods that they integrated into the menu of the first Paste restaurant and elegant it whenever they opened Paste at the very top floor of luxury shopping mall Gaysorn Village.



Some of this restaurant’s signature dishes include the roast duck rubbed with northern Thai mah kwan pepper and Tapioca dumplings of royal job smoked trout, toasted peanuts, mustard leaf and wild sesame. If you’re into seafood like me, then its spanner crab dish served with salted duck egg, fresh coconut milk, hairy eggplant and lime foliage should not be missed. But couldn’t tell from this film at all…)

It was 38 degrees out there so it was fine to have a welcome drink with cherry pea blossom and soda water to cool itself off a bit before the meal.

Next was a small canapé, fresh spanner crab on a crispy sheet of blossom with toppings of lemon zest, ginger flower and dill. Very yummy.



I wrote the restaurant before my arrival inquiring whether I could choose the tasting menu on my own (the site said minimum of two persons). The answer was NO so that I had my eyes on the a la carte menu all the way. But to my surprise, the restaurant manager came over after my amuse bouche and offered a unique tasting menu which they could arrange for solo diner! That really crossed me up coz I had brunch with my family long ago and then some sweets at Grand Hyatt Erawan. As much as I wished to do this, I went together with the a la carte menu as I initially planned rather.

Seared scallops – The scallops were lightly seared and tossed at a salad of fresh mangosteen, Peromia, lemongrass, along with young coconut.



I have had a good deal of seared scallops in my life and almost all of them were accompanied by blank (pea, cauliflower), sweet (sweetcorn) or acidic (capers) flavors. It’s one of hardly any times I had it functioned with extra spiciness (There have to be some curry paste there though not mentioned on the menu). This wasn’t bad but at a hindsight, perhaps I should have gone with my server’s recommendation of watermelon, ground poultry with fried shallot and roasted galangal powder. It would’ve given me a much refresher start.

(Interestingly, the scallop dish has been taken off their a la carte menu when I completed the trip.)

12-hour braised Australian beef rib – A very popular dish here I was advised. This was beautifully prepared with long pepper, roasted berries in a distinctive mushroom soy sauce. Not bad.



Mango Sticky Rice – Dessert was a decontructed version of possibly the most iconic dessert in Thailand, mango sticky rice. This came with a couple of Ok rong mango sticky rice rolls that have been filled with silky mango mousse, and superbly paired with cherry compote, glutinous rice balls, gold threads and a spoonful of vanilla sorbet. 

Out of those 3 dishes, I liked this the most. That would’ve been a very good option for a solo diner like me too bad I got crossed up and had too much to eat before my lunch .

A complete redesign and remodel of the classic kitchen and adjacent areas was undertaken with the talented designers at Roomscapes Cabinetry and Design Center (formerly featured here). The kitchen in this timeless house was nestled into the inside of the house with only one wall of windows allowing natural light to the space. A Rubik’s cube of design modifications were made to give the customers wish for more light, a larger bright friendly space, better performance and organization. The homeowners enter their kitchen from several points to find a new light, bright, practical family-friendly space.

Reinvented Classic Kitchen Design

River Café and Terrace at Peninsula Bangkok (Bangkok, THAILAND) ★★★★☆

Most of us have been to Bangkok many times but astonishingly, a number of us have never been to the banks of their Chao Phraya River before. Since we did not have a very busy excursion now, I thought a day-trip to the river and ICONSIAM (on the other side of the lake ) would be a wonderful retreat to the hustle and bustle of the city center. And for people who haven’t been to this part of Bangkok, it would be nice to add the boat ride experience to the excursion. Personally, I was expecting a massive crowd at the Sathorn Pier but that I couldn’t be more incorrect. Amazingly, there was no lineup!

However, I did not care anyways because we have the express boat service courtesy of Peninsula Hotel Bangkok



We didn’t have to wait until a Peninsula Hotel shuttle boat came to pick us up. This turned out to be a very comfortable ride. We have the opportunity to admire the scenery on each side of the river and snatched up hundreds of pictures. Too bad that the ride only lasted a mere five minutes so the pleasure was very short-lived.





When picking ourselves down at the hotel, I went on to check out our lunch venue, River Café and Terrace. As its name implies, it is an outside café overlooking Chao Phraya River. I thought everybody would appreciate the vibe and most importantly, the view but I was again wrong with my prediction!


Clearly, no one wanted to sit on the patio within this unbelievable heat so after consulting the service group, we decided to move indoor. Apart from the buffet, they also offer an all-day international food menu during lunch and dinner for all those people looking for a fast snack. I actually had a look at their menu prior to the excursion and it was a brief one that amazingly covered a great deal of ground. Not only does it serve some popular Thai dishes (Phad Thai, Tom Yum Goong, mango sticky rice just to name a couple ), it also incorporates many different international flavors (pasta) to the mix.

Thai Milk Tea (120 Baht) – Oh yeah in the beginning! We missed out on my first Thai milk tea at Greyhound coz they do not offer it anymore. Had to wait a day to receive my fix but it’s all worth it. This was very thirst-quenching. I enjoy the abundance of condensed milk and the tea wasn’t as strong as those from a number of these places. In reality, it was very milky that was right up my street.



Chicken Satay (420 Baht) – Many beloved chicken skewers to start things off. The Thai spiced chicken fillets were grilled to golden brown color and functioned with the typical peanut sauce and pickled cucumber. Pretty tasty.

Phad Thai Goong Rue Gai (420 Baht) – Stir-fried rice noodles with prawns for the Small nugget. I like the balance of acidity and sweetness with those noodles. Yum~!



Tom Yum Goong (480 Baht) – Our first taste of the traditional spicy soup with tiger prawns and lemongrass on this excursion. The warmth from the spices and ginger was pretty strong.

These were grilled with a sunflower seed crust, and served on a bed of cauliflower purée and sautéed garlic lettuce. This dish took a while to arrive and we afterwards learned from the restaurant manager which there was an”accident” in the kitchen as she put it. I immediately thought it was some kind of fire which broke out but luckily, it was just a mishap in which they accidentally dropped some of the scallops on the floor. Thus, they needed to re-do a different one.

The replacement finally came and they weren’t bad in any way. Just that it did not have the identical size as the Hokkaido scallops we all came to enjoy over time. And needless to say, the combo of scallop and berry was a bit boring.



Club Sandwich (550 Baht) Our sandwich was the final dish to Appear even though the freak mishap using our Hokkaido scallops.



This is another excellent dish. Really like the texture of the multigrain toast combining well with all the pan-fried chicken breast, lettuce, bacon, sun-dried berries and grilled egg.



The home made french fries was seriously good also. Underneath the sizzling hot and crunchy crust, the potato was surprisingly soft like a mash. I could eat this all day long! (I didn’t have a picture of those yummy fries so I had to use one with my sandwich instead).

I had been anticipating the usual average food out of a hotel lobby restaurant and bar but I ended up becoming more than what I bargained for. Service was completely up to the standard of a five-star resort and they even got the meals to match it. Adding in the free shuttle boat ride and we have ourselves a very great experience all around. We were done here, it is time to go back out to the warmth and spend our afternoon at ICONSIAM.
