Hanalchi Cafe @ Siam 1, Bangkok

My favorite snack place.  Their menu is full of super weird snacks and drinks.  Condensed Milk Buttered Toast with a Thai Iced Tea.  Really hits the spot!!

Mae Yui @ Aree, Bangkok

This restaurant has a lot of the items on their menu derived from famous OG Aree street vendors, but contemporarized.  They just opened and are already packed 24/7.  Great atmosphere, great flavours.

Bowery Bungalow, Silverlake, Los Angeles

Cast Iron Mideast Chicken.  A modern take on North African cuisine.  Absolutely delicious and exotic.  The skillet rice with figs and raisins is a really great accompaniment.

Ihwamun @ Little Tokyo, Los Angeles

This time I had Yakgwa (Ginger and Sesame Royal Bisquit).   It was super good and had tiny pieces of bisquits inside, but not as good as the Malted Milk.  They routinely change their flavours here.

Kim Chuy @ Chinatown, Los Angeles

Delicious Special Egg Noodle with Spiced Duck Leg (I got it dry with soup on the side) and Lipton Iced Tea with Condensed Milk:))
