Touring the Culinary Scene of Asia

2

Some trips are for partying, some are for luxury, and some are for nostalgia. This trip in January of 2010 with my parents was for one thing: food. Food is an important part of our Arabic culture so it goes without saying that we didn’t spend much time doing anything else. From Shanghai to Singapore, Langkawi to Peking, all we did was eat eat eat.

And so begins the Trip Report called Arabs in Asia.

Here’s where we went:

*I had to conquer the world of kimchi and bulgogi on my own.

Here’s what we ate:

Shanghai: Xiao long bao. Unfortunately most of these street places have been demolished.
Shanghai: Sheng jian bao. Unfortunately most of these street places have been demolished.
Beijing: You guessed it, 北京烤鸭
Beijing: You guessed it, 北京烤鸭
Singapore: Satay and Tiger

Langkawi: Arabic, Indian and everything in between

  1. I think the first image is a sheng jian bao, which is a pan fried cousin of xlb. My favorite is from Yang’s Fry Dumpling…none of the US versions even come close.

  2. True true. I prefer the steamed ones. Yang’s on nanjing xi lu walking street, take the escalator to the second floor! Good call.
