Woke up to breakfast and a few more hours to go to Singapore. I remember that I had a sudden craving when I was poking around my omelette - I really wanted to have some Nasi Lemak when I got back home. And I did :)

I suppose it’s safe to say that food on SQ’s long-haul flights is generally better than those served on its regional flights. I had the Fried Noodles and Curry-Spiced Chicken Thigh for dinner on the flight headed for Frankfurt, and it was really good, certainly much more than what I would have expected of in-flight food. I also remembered it to be the subject of envy for a couple of people around me haha.

My meet-up with Elaine (remember Divinejoybites?) in NYC saw us indulge in a good and unique dinner at Spice Market, where Asian cuisines mixed and fused with one another like I’ve never quite experienced before. Of special mention was the Ginger Fried Rice, which tasted really good and teased your senses no end.
Spice Market. 403 West 9th Avenue 13th Street, New York.
While the food is all basic, sloppy fare - eggs, (almost burnt) roast potatoes and corned beef for instance - there’s something cosy and comforting about eating in an old school American diner in the morning.
Morning Star Restaurant. 949 2nd Avenue 50th Street, New York.
McDonald’s Angus Beef Burger was so good, I ate it thrice when I was in NYC. Simply delicious, and for a very, very small price.
I seriously did not expect that I would be having Roti Prata for breakfast, not when I was departing from Frankfurt and headed for New York. Somehow, the feeling was just superb I tell you, just imagine piping hot prata with chicken curry in a cold airplane. Lovely.

I made my first trip to the US in September last year for the 66th Session of the UN General Assembly. The (almost) 24-hour flight journey to and fro was an experience in itself, but one thing’s for sure I ate a lot on board. Juicy chunks of beef with creamy mashed potatoes, nom nom.

The Shang is one of the best hotels in Chengdu, and with its luxurious and comfortable fitting it’s not too difficult to see why. Other than the wide spread at breakfast, the restaurant also serves up delicious local fare that is pleasing to the senses. I love the way they do their meat, in particular the beef and lamb, tastes good any way they do it.
Shangri-La Hotel. Binjiang Dong Road, Chengdu.
