thoumieux par sylvestre

We’ve been here several times now and love the neighbourhood. We’ve dined at the brasserie a few times as well as the 2 Michelin starred Thoumieux restaurant upstairs. It’s where they serve breakfast every morning too. As for the food, it’s definitely on our go to. Brasserie for simple quick fare and the Michelin restaurant […]

Look up. View lying on my terrace. Banyan tree roots are always magical to look at. My second Amaryllis bulb starting to grow. World’s youngest three Michelin starred guest chef chef Max Alajmo of La Calandre served up some amazing dishes at Otto e Mezzo Hong Kong. Beet root sorbet in his saffron risotto with […]

Unearthing photos from two Autumns ago, we dined at ** Michelin Thierry Drapeau restaurant in Saint-Sulpice-le-Verdon, a region of France famous for their medieval theatre shows. Sadly, time was short and the objective like all quick trips to France was to indulge in gastronomy. Table side decor – seasonal vegetables The gorgeous hotel and restaurant chef […]

Colombey-les-Deux-Eglises is where General Charles de Gaulle is buried and on our roadtrip we stopped by to visit friends two summers ago. Chef Jean-Baptise’s one Michelin starred restaurant was closed that day, so we dined at his dad’s brasserie La Table du General instead (incidentally also on the top 10 restaurants list in the area […]

Netflix made such a beautiful chef film series out of one Michelin starred Yum’Tcha in Paris and raised the bar a little too high for me. It’s one of those things where the movie often times pales in comparison to the book and original plot.  I think the mind builds up its own expectations based on […]

the eight macau (10 of 14)

We took our visiting guest chef friend ** Michelin Thierry Drapeau for Sunday yumcha here as he was curious what a *** Michelin Chinese restaurant in Asia was like. So, with four Michelin stars on the table, there was running commentary on every dish and its execution. Service was disappointing. We waited 20mins for our […]

This is a long overdue post but definitely one of the under rated Chinese restaurants in Hong Kong. Great dimsum, the perfect roast suckling pig and one of my favourite fish soups that reminded me of Singapore’s fish head bee hoon – with the evaporated milk added to thicken and flavour the soup, but there […]

Where to get the best Indian food in Macau? Look no further – Golden Peacock in Venetian is a one Michelin starred restaurant with all the regional Indian dishes cooked to perfection. Service is fantastic, I’ve gone with friends with egg, gluten, diary allergies and our server actually knew every single ingredient that went into […]
