Yoghurt has got to be one of my all-time favourite snacks.
It’s versatile, easy to cook with and there are many reasons that make it a healthy snack and a great ingredient in cooking.
While it is easy to enjoy it with fruits, there are also plenty of other ways we can enjoy this creamy and cultured dairy product.
Whether you buy it plain, double scream or flavoured, it’s a multi-use ingredient that adds an extra kick to your food.
These banana oatmeal pancakes are healthy, light, fluffy and will keep you full and satisfied.
This is a simple recipe to make. Raita is a yoghurt dish made in Indian cuisine that adds spices and veggies. Boondi are small balls made with chickpea flour that are deep fried.
This is a comfort dish you can try at home when craving dessert. Try it for yourself as a mid-week pudding or just a snack.

You will be asked if you want to eat lunch in the normal style, for which you will be invited to sit at the counter or if you want to order the sushi donburi/bowls, in which case you will sit at a table. The donburi sets are great at lunch. We decided to order both!
I ordered the “Jyou Kaisen Don/Superior seafood bowl” which includes local seafood and more from other parts of Japan!
Of course Dragon expected to share that!
From another angle!
As for Dragon, she ordered “Jizakana Kaisen Don/Local fish Bowl”!

Capella Bangkok Delves Into the Culinary Heritage of the Riverside Community

June 4, 2019
Bangkok (Thailand) – June 3, 2019 ( travelindex.com ) – Capella Bangkok, the luxurious new boutique retreat nestled on the east bank of the legendary “River of Kings”, the Chao Phraya, will introduce guests to the rich cultural and culinary heritage of Charoenkrung, its charming and rapidly re-emerging riverside neighbourhood.
Charoenkrung was one of Bangkok’s main thoroughfares up until the early 20th Century, when trade and traffic still depended on the river. For centuries, new settlers docked on the shores of the Chao Phraya, bringing with them not only new thoughts and beliefs, but also fresh hopes and dreams. Charoenkrung became a bubbling melting pot of race, religion and cuisine, and it retains this vibrant character to this day.
Capella Bangkok’s head Thai chef, Wichian Trirattanavatin, was born in Charoenkrung, which makes him the perfect person to showcase the gastronomy of this diverse district. Chef Lek, as he is better known, has a lifelong connection with the neighbourhood; as a child he toured the area’s bustling markets and “hole in the wall” restaurants with his father, who worked as a chef in the area for 40 years. Many of the street food stalls and shophouse restaurants he frequented as a boy are still here today – often run by the same people – and he still pays them regular visits on his trusty scooter.
“It’s the sights, the sounds, the smells and above all the moments that make this place truly special,” Chef Lek says. “There’s so much food here; so much variety. And each dish, every recipe, tells its own story. Charoenkrung is part of my soul, so it is a great honour to introduce the cuisine of my home to international guests. Charoenkrung has always welcomed the world and Capella Bangkok will continue this proud legacy.”
Guests can discover a wide variety of street food snacks and authentic dishes on the streets of Charoenkrung, many of which have their roots in other countries and cultures. Chinese noodles, Southeast Asian satay and Indian curry puffs are all handmade for hungry locals, alongside classic Thai snacks such as moo ping (grilled pork skewers) and sai oua (Thai sausages). Many of the family-run stalls can trace their roots back multiple generations.
Around every corner hidden treasures await; countless reminders of the traditions of Chaorenkrung and the Chao Phraya, just waiting to be rediscovered.
Capella Bangkok will deliver exceptional and authentic dining experiences that are woven into the fabric of their destination. Following in his father’s footsteps, Chef Lek will combine time-honoured recipes and fresh ingredients with contemporary cooking techniques to elevate local cuisine to the highest levels of global gastronomy, delivering delectable and beautifully presented dishes in an exquisite riverfront setting.
John Blanco, General Manager of Capella Bangkok, comments: “At Capella Bangkok, we are focused on creating luxurious and highly authentic experiences that echo the traditions of our destination. Whether it is through art, entertainment or cuisine, we strive to showcase the rich culture of the Charoenkrung district. Our cuisine will reflect the re-awakening of this captivating Charoenkrung neighbourhood.”

Dim Sums

Jun 6 ·2 min read Dim Sums are associated with China and are part of the Cantonese cuisine even though they didn’t originate there. Originally it was an exclusive luxury made for the Emperor and his family, but it was also enjoyed by the wealthy. Eventually, it moved to tea houses where it was enjoyed by the masses as a snack. It became a popular choice to be accompanied with tea as a snack. It is also why they are bite-sized. Nowadays Dim Sum is an integral part of Chinese culture and is widely appreciated in many other Asian countries. The filling, pastry, and shape depend on the region and climate from which it originates. For instance in India, to align with the cultural setting there is a lot of vegetarian variety. And it is often given an Indian touch using a lot more Indian spices. They are often confused with momos which are part of the Tibetan cuisine. All momos are Dim Sums but all Dim Sums are not momos. They are preferably made from any kind of starch while momos are made of wheat flour. Street side stores are where you’ll find momos, whereas Dim Sums are a fine dining affair. Things to remember while eating Dim Sums are that they should always be shared, sharing meals is an integral part of the Chinese culture and must be respected. If you don’t know to use chopsticks, ask the waiter for a fork but do not spear the dim sum with your chopsticks. It is also important to not pick the Dim Sums with your personal chopsticks but instead use the ones assigned for each item. It is also important that you take small bites and not gobble the entire Dim Sum. Got dim sum your mind now? Don’t you hold back and indulge in some delicious Dim Sums from Mandarin Oak and order Chinese food online.

Family-friendly airports for parents and kids

Family-friendly airports for parents and kids June 05, 2019 1 / 8
More parents travelling with the kids means family-friendly airports have become an important element of the vacation.
Family-friendly airports often come with the works, including more greenery, rest pods, and of course, appealing food options.
These airports have garnered solid reputations as places to relax between flights — in some cases, many of them are worth a visit just on their own. Load more 2 / 8 Changi International Airport, Singapore
Top of the list (obvs) is our own Changi International Airport . But that’s not just local pride speaking.
Our award-winning airport takes our “garden city” reputation seriously, and thanks to the numerous parks, ponds and even butterfly gardens, being in transit here is almost literally a walk in the park. And now that Jewel Changi Airport has opened, families have flooded the 10-story complex, which has everything from a IMAX cinema to 24-hour food outlets, a kid-focused floor, and more.
You’ll also find an outdoor pool and a three-floor slide for kids in Terminal 3.

Load more 3 / 8 Incheon International, Seoul, South Korea
Another award-winning airport, Incheon prides itself in giving visitors a taste of Korea. The Korean Cultural Museum and Korean Cultural Experience both give travellers a chance to try their hand at Korean crafts, or take in a show.

When it comes to efficiency, nothing beats Hong Kong International Airport which offers an in-town check-in service at the International Finance Centre in Central, located 40-minutes from the airport by train.
That means that accessing the city — and not missing your next flight — is easier than ever if you have a few hours to spare on a layover. Even if you don’t leave the airport, you’ll find lots to do.
