Mister Donut, Akihabara Tokyo

Posted on June 23, 2009

The best donuts in Tokyo?

I didn’t try all the donuts in Tokyo but these are the best I’ve tasted so far – in my life. I’m a fan of the cinnamon sugar donut and I don’t like iced donuts. I might be the only weirdo who doesn’t but that’s OK. I just don’t do super-sweet.

Dillon, on the other hand, has a sweet tooth. I find it strange that I prefer savoury/salty and he loves sweet/chocolatey. Isn’t it meant to be the other way around with boys and girls?

Let’s not dwell on that and get back to Mister Donut. It’s a global chain but is extremely popular in Japan with more than a thousand stores across the country. We stopped for morning tea while checking out a very cool part of Tokyo called Akihabara, or ‘Electric Town‘. It’s jam-packed with stores selling electronic equipment of every variety under the sun and quite frankly Dillon was in heaven.

As someone who’s a keen people-watcher it was really interesting to see the ordering behaviour of customers in Mister Donut. It seemed to be the norm to go there alone, order 3 to 5 donuts and sit and read manga or magazines for hours on end – I guess the free coffee and tea refills has something to do with it. (more…)

Have you ever been yelled at by a chef and a barista for taking photos in a cafe? Well now I have. Don’t worry though, this story has a happy ending. (more…)

Review: Crazy Bear, London

Posted on December 8, 2008

Crazy Bear is my favourite Thai Fusion restaurant in London. I’ve been there 4 times and almost every time with my favourite British mate, Dirk Diggler (DD). He asked to be called that. You see, he’s quite immature and has a dark sense of humour, but absolutely loves to eat! Hence why we are friends.

Beware, this review is going to be a bit of a photo bonanza, because we totally over-ordered. I just really wanted to capture all my favourite dishes and knew you would appreciate it.

Disclaimer: There was only the two of us, and we didn’t finish everything, promise.
