We love food! No matter where we are in the World we always sample the local cuisine and delicacies. From our numerous taste tests we have to say: Asia is home to the most amazing dishes. Plus some of the most wierd and wonderful! Read on to discover where and what our experts recommend in Asia.
Holly’s restaurant recommendation…
Tamarind in Luang Prabang, Laos.
Holly has tried a variety of restaurants whilst travelling Asia. However, the one place that stuck in her memory is the delightful Tamarind restaurant in the sleepy city of Luang Prabang.
“Tamarind serves up a real mix of amazing delicate food that’s not too spicey. A firm favourite of mine!“

For wierd & wonderful Chris recommends…
trying scorpion in Beijing.
Across Asia you will find some controversial delicacies and if you are feeling daring then Chris recommends trying Scorpion. The best place to do so is the Wangfujing Night Market, Beijing.
“Scorpion was definitely one of the wierdest things I’ve tried! It was sweet and crispy, like the outside of a toffee apple on bonfire night.“
Chris recommends our Boutique China itinerary, from £1,990 pp.
The best meal Yura has ever eaten is…
a vegetarian Nasi Champur in Indonesia.
Whilst travelling throughout Indonesia, Yura dined on vegetarian Nasi Champur regularly.
“It was so good because it was a mix of different tastes and textures. The tastes are often distinctly local and this dish tasted slightly different in different parts of Indonesia!“
