The next day I had Bahn Mi on my mind. It is a Vietnamese baguette which comes with: daikon, carrot, cilantro, chilis, and protein meats. I asked some locals and was told to go to Bahn Mi Huyn Hoa. As soon as I arrived, I saw many people working there preparing the ingredients for the sandwiches so I could tell it was a well run operation. I ordered a sandwich for 35k dong. It only took a few minutes before it was in my hand ready to devour.

In case you are wondering what to do in Nagoya, Japan look no further! The food is absolutely delicious!
This past weekend I had the opportunity to visit Nagoya from Tokyo. I never had given visiting Nagoya much thought but began to do some research before my trip. Apparently, the Japanese chicken wings called tebasaki in Japanese are quite famous in Nagoya as well as the miso katsu which is a pork cutlet with miso based sauce.
This past weekend I got the opportunity to travel from Osaka to Tokyo by bullet train. You can purchase a shinkansen ticket for about 13,000 yen, unreserved, or a bit more for a reserved seat. In this post, you will find out about the Osaka Japanese food I tried as well as the craft beer bars I visited in this trip.
I got to spend the last four days in Taipei, Taiwan recently. Although the weather did make me want to run to the beach, the food definitely kept me hanging around. Click here to find out more about where to eat in Taipei!
Looking for where to go in Harajuku? I had a chance to try delicious Mexican food and craft beer in a visit to Harajuku. I heard about this craft beer bar called Baird Beer Taproom Harajuku and a Mexican restaurant called Chiles Mexican. Baird Beer Taproom is unique because it’s unlike other craft beer bars in Tokyo. This venue is actually owned by a craft beer company called Baird. To get there, you will take the JR to Harajuku Station and the venue is on Takeshita in one of the side streets.

Raohe Night Market felt like a completely different planet. The main entrance is next to a giant beautiful temple that people crown in front to take a picture. There is a giant sign at the entrance that makes you feel like you are entering Disney World (minus the overweight Americans). Right as I walked in I saw the long line for the famous Pepper Pork Buns. My heart was a little discouraged but I waited anyways. The line moves pretty quickly so in no time I was holding a piping hot bun in a piece of parchment paper. Seriously, there is just no comparison. The pork buns are cooked in a tandoori style oven so the bottoms of the buns are a little burnt and perfectly crunchy. The dough is flaky like a croissant dough but oh so soft and delicious. Then we get to the filling! These buns are stuffed with pork that has been HEAVILY season with pepper, and then receive a generous helping of scallions, or green onions. They are juicy, tender, flaky and have the most perfect kick. I have been back home for over a week now and I still find myself thinking about that magical bun.
This week we have a special guest post from instagrammer: Travellingeats. We had a conversation about food on a post and Travellingeats was in Taiwan. Then I asked them if they'd be able to post about their experience in the food markets of Taipei.
This post will look at where to eat in Taipei, Taipei night market food and Shilin Night Market.
