Siamese Boat Noodle, Bangkok…just go

There’s no beating around the bush. This Siam Paragon noodle joint serves, you guessed it, boat noodles.

The highlight was the Australian wagyu ribeye, beef ball, braised shank and tendon where the soup comes with a gorgeous beef flavour with a hint of spiciness and the beef itself is seriously tender and tasty to boot. While the much loved Australian wagyu ribeye is perfectly cooked and a firm bestseller here, another favourite is the suitably spice steamed wontons with Sichuan chilli. And I never tire of the grilled pork ball (3 skewers) with pleasingly flavoured sweet chilli dip. The crispy pork fat is also a crowd pleaser.

The place is regularly packed and it deserves to be busy. This is the true truth as I say it as it is…

Luke’s Lobster, New York City…it’s hard not to love.

There’s a lot of joy to be had in a lobster roll. Priding themselves on the fact that they work directly with fishermen to pick out the best seafood, Luke knows a thing or two about lobster.

Unable to decide at The Plaza Food Hall, I went for The Luke’s Trio – 1/2 crab, 1/2 lobster, 1/2 shrimp and preceded that with clam chowdah. All the meat are well-chilled, fresh and tender; they melt in your mouth along with the butter, which is flavorful but not overpowering

It’s big on flavours and it’s huge on joy. This is the true truth as I say it as it is…

Roberta’s Pizza, New York City…this is pizza you’ll want to eat at any hour of the day, whether you’re inebriated or not

Pizza. It’s one of the world’s most popular foods – and rightly so. It’s not usually my first choice to eat in a food hall, but Urbanspace Vanderbilt in Midtown East houses the closest Roberta’s to me. There are  some picnic tables and bar seats inside, so it’s not a bad place to hang out for a little while.

Roberta’s imaginative pizzas are a perfect balance of puffy, chewy, and charred. The Bee Sting is a small, personal-size pizza. With a blistered crust and sweet-savory toppings (soppressata and honey), nothing about this Bee Sting pizza is conventional, but it’s damn delicious

You get the idea. This is the true truth as I say it as it is…
