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…

Aburi-EN, Singapore…how evocative the flavours are

Aburi, literally translates as “flaming” is a style of cooking to create a smokey fragrance.

We started with the Hokkaido ika surume – grilled Hokkaido squid. For any lover of squid, the result is exquisite. You can really taste the charring. Equally impressive was the premium buta bara don – grilled chestnut pork belly on rice. Best of all was the Wagyu Karubi Don – a lip-smaking grilled miyazaki wagyu on rice.

So go in ones or twos or many. But go. Do. This is the true truth as I say it as it is…
