A mesmerizing dinner affair at Adrift, Marina Bay Sands!

After a delightful first visit to Adrift at the Marina Bay Sands, I found my way back to the restaurant for dinner. From the experience, I must say that dinner was a mesmerizing affair. Each dish was crafted to share, and brimming with flavours that leaves you craving for more. I was particularly enchanted with items such as the Fried Oysters, King Crab Melt, Grilled Corn and the Salt and Pepper Squid. And with each dish being reasonably priced for the thought and finesse put into it, it made the entire visit all the more memorable and delightful.

Taste a little bit of history with Sapporo Beer and tuck in to lunch at Sapporo Station!

After a well-rested night and a sumptuous but simple breakfast at the Ibis Styles Sapporo Hotel, Brian and I set off for the Sapporo Beer Museum. It was an idyllic 10 minutes walk to the nearby Hosui-Susukino Station (豊水すすきの駅). Along the way, I caught the occasional glimpse of Sakura trees. It’s my first time seeing them and I do look forward to returning one day for a full bloom encounter.  […]

Welcome to Sapporo City – The Heart of Hokkaido and the start of a Gourmet’s Adventure!

Finally, I’ve made it into Sapporo City. It has been a long an arduous journey, and not something that I expected.
