Burger Quest : Moe Joe

Let’s get back in Osaka and try out some amazing burger at Moe Joe.

Moe Joe Burger with homemade chili

I ordered a Burger with home made chili and it was really good.  It was a bit small and there are still several choices from the menu and most are Mexican style dishes.

Prices, a bit pricey than Mc Donalds of course but tastier 😀

If you are around Shinsaibashi area and looking for a Burger and Mexican dishes in one, head out to Moe Joe.



A weekend trip to Hong Kong

Let ‘s take a short break from Thailand and head out to Hong Kong for a short trip.

Stopped by Hong Kong airport several times but never had the chance to visit this vibrant city and eat some delicious food.

Miss K found a really affordable flight to Hong Kong so off we go. We arrived in Hong Kong Friday night and left Sunday afternoon so we had the whole of Saturday to explore.

First stop is Fa Yuen Street  or Sneaker Market .  It is were most local shop so prices are going to be cheaper than tourist area.

Untitled Walking a little further we found the Flower Market and just enjoyed the beautiful flowers for free. Untitled
Enjoying the moment.

Untitled Beautiful Orchids and my mother will be very happy in this store.

The next stop is the Bird Park. Here you can find bird enthusiast were they bring their birds to interact with other birds to learn new songs. But the sad part is , they are also selling birds there. We were looking at some of the birds and then the owner just gave us a bad look and took the bird away. I think he was feeling over protected over his bird. Untitled
Practicing a song, but better to be free, right?

Birds and their owners.

Walking around the city made us both hungry so we made our way to Yum Cha.

Cute little buns shaped like pigs and other cute animals

Cute little birds Tart.

Yum Cha offers this cute little buns, but taste wise, you can find better and more tastier treats in some areas and maybe affordable .

Now that we are filled, we head out the port area before heading to Victoria Peak.

Unfortunately, it was a cloudy day so not getting a good view.

The pirate ship. Reservation is needed.

We took a short ferry ride to Central from Tsim Sha Tsui but before heading out to Victoria Peak, have to try the infamous Egg Tart from Tai Cheong Bakery and some coffee from Pacific Coffee.
Untitled Now it is time to check out Victoria Peak. As soon as we got to the cable area, we know that it will take us forever to get to the top with all the tourist lining up, so we decided to take the taxi up and then walk back down. As soon as we got there, we have to try the egg waffle with Ice cream, eating time again 😀 Untitled

Again, it was a cloudy, foggy day so no city view for us.

It was a nice walk down though and then we explore a little bit of central Hong Kong and before heading out back to the hotel, we have to have another cake and this time from Maxim Bakery.

Very very delicious Mango Lava Cheese Cake.

It was a long day of walking and eating so both of us where really tired and slept really good.

There might be some good Night clubs or bars but both Miss K and I are not really into bars and nightclub.

The next day, it was more on shopping for present and food (again) before heading out to the airport and coming back to Osaka.

Could have stayed one more day and eat more but maybe next time.

Burger Quest : The PanHeads Heaven Saloon

The Pan Heads Heaven Salon 's Cheese Boom Burger

Have you ever been to Biker’s Bar, those Harley Davidson kinda bikers? Well head out to  The PanHead Heaven Saloon and while you’re at it, make sure to try their burgers.

They also make homemade bagel and I love it.

I ordered the “Cheese Boom” burger and even though I love burgers, I can barely finish it. It’s not those dainty burgers that you can find in Japan but closer to American size.

Prices are affordable, starts around 1000 yen.

It fairly close to Kujo Station so if you want to try a more tastier, meatier burger you know where to go. Bon apetite .



A few years ago I had a meetup hanami event . We enjoyed the cherry blossoms while having a picnic near the river.

One of the participants is actually a professional chef and fast forward, he has successfully established his restaurant in Tennoji area and I tell you the food is awesome.

Every time I remember feeding him my own version of chicken nugget , I felt a little embarass 🙂

It took me a long time to visit his restaurant  but after the first time, I think I’m going to be a regular whenver I’m in the area.

If you have time or in the area, make sure to drop by and say hi to Chef Ling.


The pork is so soft and taste like Filipino Version called “Humba” , it was gone in a few minutes.
