My perfect day in Oman would include countless dates with coffee, but there is just so much more on the food and drink menu to explore. Let me take you for a little sensory adventure all about Omani gastronomy.
Remember when I took the Trans-Mongolian train from China to Russia? Remember when I discussed why we worked with Real Russia to get those train tickets, and also the electricity situation while on-board?
Topped with a dollop of smetana and a smathering of dill, this traditional borscht soup recipe was brought to you by the 3 Russian ladies at the 8th Floor Hostel in Tomsk — all 3 of which slaved away for hours in the kitchen to give us foreigners a taste of the real deal.
Is there something you do on your travels that gives you no shame but might be shamed in some parts of the travel community? You can read about my specific travel love that I don't hesitate to share inside!
Earlier this year, I was a Malaysia Kitchen Blogger Ambassador. This is my round-up of posts from the experience, plus a little bit extra here and there. If you have no idea what Malaysian food is like, do click on!
Under normal circumstances, I do not publish guest posts on Brooke vs. the World, but I guess all rules are meant to be broken. My boyfriend (the laksa expert) and I have been partaking in many Malaysian meals around Sydney together as part of Malaysia Kitchen, and so it seemed suiting to let him educate my readers on his favorite dish: laksa!
Like with many cultures, Malaysian food is a melting pot of influences. There is straight up Malaysian food, Chinese Malaysian food (that which my boyfriend says is the best, but he's biased coming from Chinese Malay heritage) and Indian Malaysian food. Last night, Pat and I were literally searching the menu for the Malaysian dishes as it seemed our restaurant choice was primarily Indian focused.
