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).
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!
Travelling in Seoul, It’s impossible to avoid the cafe craze. When I was planning my trip, I made sure to include a visit to some of its more unique cafes and we’ve been sharing those experiences here during the last couple of weeks. The first cafe experience I shared was from the Poop Cafe in Insadong, followed by the 3D latte art cafe in Hongdae. Today I’m going to take you to a different neighborhood – Myeong-dong and another great cafe place – O’sulloc.
A morning downpour in Seoul forced us to make a change of plans. We decided to spend a lazy morning at a coffee shop which caught my attention a day before. O’sulloc Tea House, conveniently located right by our hotel, is a themed cafe which specializes in green tea.
Grød is one of the most popular breakfast spots in Copenhagen. What’s so special about Grød that makes it so successful? They are the world’s first porridge bar! Yes, you read that right, porridge. Their mission is to “redefine porridge, and to show the world that porridge can be delicious, delicate and versatile”. The first porridge bar was opened on Jægersborggade, in the heart of Nørrebro, and they have since expanded to 3 more spots in Copenhagen.
A bit terrifying to think the total number of calories of all the Kit Kat that I currently have in my house is 7456.
Japanese Kit Kat was something I have dreamed about tasting for a long time. While visiting Tokyo I set myself a goal to grab as many different Kit Kat flavors as I could find. Finding them was not always easy, but it was well worth it. They all have really unique tastes and smells, not to mention very cool packaging. I also really like how each box\piece of Kit Kat has a space on the back for writing personal notes. That space is meant for friends and family to write words of encouragement to students which are studying for their entrance exams. That is probably because Kit Kat sounds similar to the “kitto katsu” – a Japanese phrase roughly translated as “you will surely win\succeed”. Read More
