Wraptor

DSC06037

Wraptor is a recently opened Mexican restaurant around Aree area of Bangkok which promotes using honey in Mexican food. Getting there is not difficult but a bit tricky since you got to cross the road with high intensity of cars all around. Way to pump those adrenaline before trying new stuff.

The place is full of natural light which is not ideal for a late lunch in Bangkok with excessive amount of sunlight around. Staying there around 2-3 pm is just way too hot for my experience which air conditioner does not help much.

[18/04/2018] The place informed me that they have improved air condition situation. I will observe this statement next time I visit the place.

Wraptor specialize in wrap as the name clearly suggest. Unfortunately, I’m not in a mood for wrap and decided to go with some alternative choice.

The secret of this place is NES classic edition and Famicom mini in a secret corner just to bring you back to 8 bit world while waiting for the food.

Mexican Honey Beef Steak with green Salad

Serving portion seems to be decent. Adding honey brings sweetness with a balance level of sweetness intensity contrary to sugar. The texture of steak are good but, a little bit chewy. Salads and tortilla are standard.

Say Cheese! (Pork)

My friend ordered this because of her cheese cravings. The cheese are well-melted with spice and seasoning. The texture are enjoyable and not too oily. This prove that simple meal could be satisfying and looks could be deceiving. This menu just became my favorite choice when my next cheese craving comes up.

They also have honey in the store in case you’re interested.

Nowhere BKK

Every once in a while, I discover new place with lots of exotic view and fresh inspiration. For this week, Nowhere is the place that I fell in love at first glance. The decoration are spot on with infinite stairs that defines “journey” as a fundamental part of life.

I arrived around 5 pm. Natural light at that moment gave out some warm and tranquility feeling. On contrary to the location in Ekkamai which is one of the most busiest area in Bangkok, the place are perfect for hanging out after a long day.

Outdoor tables with rooftop views on Ekkamai area.

Let’s get started with some amazing cuisine Nowhere has to offer.

Watermelon Salad – Inspired by Thai traditional “Tang Mo Pla Haeng” Tossed watermelons served with fresh baby spinach, topped with Feta cheese and Bonito flakes, and seasoned with Sumac vinaigrette to convey Umami flavor.  

Watermelon packs a fresh and cool punch with crunchy texture supported with mild Feta cheese flavor and distinct flavored bonito flakes. Fresh baby spinach and Sumac vinaigrette also packs balanced flavor and brings harmony to the dish.

Tumeric chicken – Marinated chicken wings served with deep-fried tumeric, & herbs and spicy apple salad (Twisted from famous fried chicken at pattaya beach)

At first I thought that the chicken would be dry & crispy like most of Tumeric chicken in Thailand. The texture seems to be more like buffalo wings. Seasoning are so well-developed with sweet, mild spicy and a little bit of sour. One of the best Tumeric chicken I ever had.

Fried Sardinella – Served with Yuzu Togarashi, horseradish mayo and lemon. 

First time trying fried Sardinella. The fish could be eaten whole without and small bones at all. Texture are kind of crispy with a twist of lemon and mayo defines as most suitable for drinking snack.

Japanese Carnitas Pizza – Japanese pork Canitas, asparagus, miso tomato sauce, leek, garlic, mozzarella and parmesan. Carnitas: Mexican braised pork in hot water until tender

Twist of Mexican and Japanese food, now that’s one exciting choice. Pizza texture located on thick and soft area. Carnitas texture are just melt in my mouth with mildly sweetness flavor. Added with creamy cheesy texture. It’s one of the pizza I couldn’t have enough.

A mess of Nowhere – Meringue with dark chocolate and rum sauce served with yogurt cream and fresh strawberries. (Inspired by Eton Mess, a classic English dessert invented around 1920s at Eton College,UK)

I would say this is a “Hot mess” in positive way. Dark chocolate are partly bitter and sweet in the perfect harmony. Meringue are not too dry and compliments with melty chocolate and distinct kick from rum with sour & sweetness from strawberries.

Hello, I have just recently traveled to Zurich, Switzerland in September. The season is kind of little bit chilly. Zurich is a wonderful town and I just love the beautiful city planning. My trip started with a Steakhouse located near Oerlikon station.

DSC02455

I arrived at the restaurant around noon. At first, there were only couples of peoples in the place which later got crowded soon. Decoration seems like as US style steakhouse.

Then I got the food menu in English and go for a rib eye steak however, they do not have an English menu for beverage. Luckily, the waitress recommended me some menu in English and I went for a sparkling water.

Salad comes with a choice of Italian and French dressing. I chose Italian and salad dressing was sour which I found very appetizing for next course.

Mediocre bread, nothing special.

Ta-daaaa! My steak was served with hot plate (or rocks?) with 3 sauces, french fries and pineapple. The top plate is hotter in case you want to continuing cooking your steak and bottom plate is for eating.

Moderate amount of potato chips. Not too oily.

I have selected the streak because they claimed it is local beef from Switzerland. As I ordered medium rare, they perfected my request and the texture was so juicy. On the contrary, seasonal seems to be too heavy on the salt which adding sauce could balance the taste to good harmony.

That’s all for this review. Personally, I think this is a great choice for a steakhouse in Zurich. See you later and hope you have a wonderful day 😊.
