Food Adventures: Mr Miyagi

Mr. Miyagi on Urbanspoon

I love the vibe of this place. It's lively but not too noisy. The menu has a great variety, the service is attentive and the food tastes just as good as it looks. I never realised that this gem on Chapel Street was so close to home but often we take for granted what's right in our back yard, don't we?

The restaurant runs walk-in style however they do take early bookings from 5:30-6:30pm for groups 1-5, and groups of 6 or more can book into an early or late sitting.

Nori Taco - grilled salmon belly, vinegar rice, spicy nappa cabbage, Japanese mayo, chilli oil ($12) #datthumb

Battered Corn - tempura sweet corn kernels, freshly popped corn, corn salt and corn mayo ($15/3pc)

Scallop Pancakes - Hokkaido scallops, vegetable & smoked bacon pancake, shaved bonito flakes ($18/3pc)

Salmon Tartare - avocado, shallot, radish, cucumber, yuzu yoghurt pearl, nori potato crisps ($18) - excuse the terrible photo... I think I was too excited to dig into the first dish of the night! This was hands down my favourite dish.

Travel Adventures: Phuket

These are just some snapshots of my time in Phuket, Thailand. It was a jam-packed few days - we swam in the crystal clear waters of Maya Bay, canoed inside the bat-filled caves and also got the scare of our lives when a monkey dropped down from nowhere and decided to make himself comfortable on our canoe (a little too close for my own comfort though). We travelled on the back of an elephant but it was a slightly rough ride because he happened to have an itchy ass and kept stopping by at rocks along the way and rubbing his butt back and forth on the rocks! We also grew overly attached to baby tigers at Tiger Kingdom - I can has?

Travel Adventures: Bangkok & Koh Samui

A quick photo diary of my favourite moments from my recent grad trip to Asia - enjoy!

View of Bangkok from our hotel in Riverside

That pool.

Not the biggest fan of Thai food (a little too spicy for me!) Our usual culprits were - Seafood Tom Yum Soup, Morning Glory, Som Tam, Pad Thai and Green Curry. This green curry fried rice was amazing!

Poolside drinks all day every day

Missed Grad Ball back in Melbourne but we went to the Lebua tower to celebrate (Hangover 2 anyone? 

 Shocking quality photo but love these girls.

Thip Samai Pad Thai

Pineapples & coconut - a clear indication you're on holiday
