We eat a lot of pork in Denmark, so it should come as no surprise that stegt flæsk, fried pork belly, was voted the National Dish of Denmark in 2014. Stegt flæsk is traditionally served with potatoes and a white gravy with lots of parsley. The pork belly is either pan-fried or cooked in the oven. I’ve also heard about deep-fried versions, but this is definitely not the traditional way to prepare it.

Han River, Seoul

Before jetting off in different directions, AC, Peter, Shinae and I had a couple of days together in Seoul, and one of the days, we decided to go biking along Han River. We took the metro to Yeouinaru station, and from there, we walked over to Yeouido Hangang Park down by the river. Picking a bike was an easy task, as they all looked the same: Quite old-fashioned, but comfortable to ride.

The area around Dubai Creek is one of my favorite places in the city, and if the traffic wasn’t so horrible, I would go there all the time. For me, a trip to Dubai Creek usually start with a walk through the textile souk and the maze-like alleys in the historical district Bastakiya. If I manage to find my way out to the water, I go for a walk along the creek before I stop for lunch at one of the area’s many nice cafés and restaurants.

Khao Tom, rice soup, Charoen Krung Road, Bangkok

I arrived in Bangkok rather late, and before I got to the city and checked in at the hotel, it was way past dinner time. My hotel was on a quiet stretch of Charoen Krung Road without a lot of restaurants in sight, so for a short moment I wondered whether I would have to go to bed hungry.  But the I found a tiny place, where a man was serving soup from a giant pot.
