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.
Somboon Seafood is a very popular seafood restaurant chain in Bangkok. The original restaurant opened back in 1969, and their signature fried curry crab has turned into legend.
I flew with Thai Airways to Bangkok and it was a very nice flight. It’s been many years since my last Thai Airways flight, so I had almost forgotten how great they are. Amazing service, even for those of us, down at row number 41.
My sister Trine and I are very different in many ways, but one thing that brings us together is food, and it does not have to be fancy. When Trine was living in Århus, we always went to the same Vietnamese restaurant to eat pho, but after she has moved to Fredericia, Djengis Khan Mongolian Barbecue (or, The Mongolian, as most people call it) has become our new favorite place to go.
There are certain things in life I just cannot say no to, and all-you-can-eat sushi is one of them. If you feel the same way, then you have to visit Deluxe Daieiki in Hong Kong. It may not be the best sushi you’ve ever had, but it is more than decent, and there are so many different kinds of sushi and sashimi, that I am sure you will find something you like.
From Dubai Marina to Østerstrand (Eastern beach) in Fredericia, what a contrast! I went with my mom to walk her dog Bølle and Trine’s dog Bella along the beach, and even though it was freezing, it was a wonderful walk. The Danish beaches are even more beautiful in the winter months, when they are almost empty and the air is crisp and clear.
At this time of the year, Dubai is a great place to be. This is when all the tourists come down to enjoy the sunny weather (and the Shopping Festival), and Dubai is doing its very best to make a good impression.
Fort Lauderdale has not always been known for its bustling dining scene, but things are changing and meh is turning into yay. I have made a list of restaurants that I particularly like, and I hope it can serve as a starting point if you are visiting Fort Lauderdale and wonder where to eat. It is the U.S. so you will need a car or an Uber to get to most of the places mentioned, but I hope you will agree with me that these restaurants are worth the ride.
