In a rare jaunt in Istanbul, Turkey, I was delighted with the food many times. you could have indulge in various grilled meats of lamb and beef with occasional fish that are tasty but moderately seasoned. But being Asians, we still crave for rice, noodles and pork. We found ourselves looking for a Chinese restaurant near to Taksim Square. There, we found a restaurant a wide range of Chinese traditional dishes such as rice, noodles, dumplings and soups. Also, there were other Asian restaurants in the mall area like Sushico in Kanyon Mall.
Here’s my first try of cooking risotto. Let’s start with the basic recipe, that is using tomatoes and prawns. We’ll prepare the broth by boiling the prawns with garlic and bayleaf. But in this recipe, we won’t be able to add wine as wine is not available in our current location. Here in Saudi Arabia, many Italian restaurants serve various risotto dish, and they were able to make it tastes almost or even close to perfect even without the wine.
Buffet dinner is commonly popular in various luxury hotels everywhere. Here in Riyadh, you can try to experience dining in buffet in one of The Ritz Carlton’s in-house dining restaurants. In Al Orjouan restaurant, there is an all-day dining buffet. It showcases Lebanese cuisines in their buffet table, as well as wide selection of international cuisines. The dining area is very spacious and elegantly well-decored with huge chandeliers.
Mobile technology has placed, over the course of the last several years, a high value on discovery – the use of maps, data, and social connections to expose users to new experiences. The restaurant industry, particularly in densely-populated areas, has been quick to hop on board, playing along with the technology industry to boost visibility in ways traditional marketing cannot.
When abroad, the closest food we Filipinos can enjoy eating is Thai food. Well many of us can at least have an idea what Thai food tastes like – it can be too spicy. But there’s one Thai restaurant here in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia where they are able to customize their food as to customers preference. We Filipinos normally like sweet to mild spicy food, so Thai food is the best alternative if we cannot find a decent Filipino restaurant in a different country we work or visit.
