What the Duck | Non Entrée Desserts, Singapore

Om Nom Nomad - Non Entrée Desserts

Scavenging through Instagram to build my foodie itinerary for Singapore I came across many pictures of a rubber ducky. Oddly enough – this wasn’t the case of mis-hashtagging we all often bump into in Instagram. Rather, this was an actual edible rubber ducky! Turns out this is one of the signature desserts at Non Entrée Desserts.

16 of Seoul’s Coolest Coffee and Dessert Shops

Om Nom Nomad

South Korea, the nation of Kimchi has turned in recent years to a nation of coffee shops. In a city with more than 17,000 coffee shops (source: reuters), it’s not surprising that some of them are among the most extraordinary and bizarre themed cafe joints in the world! Korean themed cafes include ring making cafe, cat, dog and even sheep cafe, Hello Kitty themed cafe, Lego Cafe, selfie cafe and a photo studio cafe. Just think of a concept – there’s probably already a cafe in Seoul just like that!

Matcha Ado About Nothing | BackDoor By Sunny, Tel Aviv

Om Nom Nomad - BackDoor By Sunny

A while back we visited Nithan Thai, and wrote all about it. Today we share with you what’s going on in its backyard. BackDoor by Sunny is an Asian inspired bakery which is located, you guessed it right, right at the back of Nithan Thai. The bakery was opened a few months ago by Sunny Deri, one of the most esteemed pastry chefs in Israel today. Since our visit, though, Deri decided to leave due to “incompatibility with Nithan Thai’s chef” according to Time Out magazine (Hebrew).

The Molecular Dessert Bar you don’t want to miss | ZUC.CCH.ERO, Hong Kong

Om Nom Nomad - ZUC.CCH.ERO

When planning our trip to Hong Kong, we originally made reservations for a different dessert place. After seeing photos on Instagram though, we knew we had to cancel those and make sure to reserve a spot in ZUC.CCH.ERO. Because of the rigorous planning of said trip, we reserved our place via Facebook months in advance, which turned to be an unusual event for the dessert bar – nevertheless our reservation was kept. In fact, when we made the reservation via Facebook Messenger, the person on the other side of the keyboard (and on the other side of the world) turned out to be Karen, one of the co-owners. She was nice and kind both online and offline.
