Pasta Party at The Italian Bowl, Newtown



I don't think there is anything quite like the humble bowl of pasta in the world of comfort food. There's probably not a single person I know who would turn down a bowl of pasta. It has such universal appeal, and can be cooked in so many different ways that it's hard not to say no.

Isaac Toast: a South Korean sandwich specialty


Travelling gives you a licence to be adventurous with your daily diet. Breakfast, in particular, is a meal that instantly becomes so exciting to eat in foreign countries. 

The breakfasts we ate on our trip to South Korea late last year ranged from cheap gimbap (Korean-style sushi) and samgak gimbap (triangular rice balls) from the local 7 Eleven, to warming dakjuk (rice porridge) and baked goods from the popular Korean bakery chains Paris Baguette and Tour Les Jours. One of the most memorable breakfasts we had was from the uniquely Korean breakfast-cum-sandwich chain, Isaac Toast. I enjoyed it so much that I thought it would be appropriate to dedicate a whole post to this marvelous bread creation.
