Ever since my first trip to Japan, I’ve discovered the amazing alternative to ramen – TSUKEMEN. What is this? Basically tsukemen is ramen lor with their broth and noodles served separately, then dipped and eaten. The broth of a tsukemen tends to be richer and more concentrated, to the consistency such that it’s kinda like […]

“I forgot how good this tastes like..” – Me, when I took a first bite into the Hitsumabushi.  Honestly, Explodingbelly isn’t quite a fan of unagi; it’s like I do eat unagi but I don’t see myself going back to one place again, and again, and… again, for just unagi. But with Man Man, I […]

Explodingbelly recently went on a short getaway to TOKYO, Japan.. again!!! Okay, this time round, the queues were equally insane – for toilets, fitting rooms, Disneyland, and food, the only different thing was, the crazy hot weather and insane perpetual rains. I’ll rant more in the travelogue but for now, let’s get to the point. […]

The thought of Pepper Lunch just incites this bubble of happiness in me because it reminds me of my secondary school days (omg I got so old meh) and the fun concept of “cooking” my own food! Pepper Lunch has been pretty much the household name ever since it has set foot into Singapore from […]

Did you know – D’good over at Holland Village was the very first cafe that sparked my interest in cafe hopping? I remember how thrilled I was by the idea of spending my meager student allowance on an eggs Benedict – never looked back since. Honestly still one of the prettier cafes around, with that […]
