Holiday in Verona

Pictures from Verona Daily Photo

Off tomorrow on a much needed break to Verona and Lake Garda area. My friend and I will be spending a few days in the Torri del Benaco area, then venture into Verona to watch Aida at the Arena. This will be my first trip to Italy and I'm looking forward to trying the food. And gelato!

Meals for one

I actually don't mind eating alone, particularly when it comes to lunch. That way, I'm free to order exactly what I want without worrying about appearing greedy to other people. It's also a nice time to slow down, people-watch, think or catch up on reading.

Omelette and char siew rice at Cafe de Hong Kong.

Lunch at home and I was very hungry. Soba with tofu and salmon.

One of the rare times I made lunch and brought into the office. I had a strong craving for thunder tea rice, and the only way to get it was to make it myself.

I long for the taste of home once in a while. Brown rice, kang kong (or morning glory as they call it here) and chili prawns at Busaba Eathai.

Breakfast at home: omelette with yellow pepper, rocket, chives and cherry tomatoes

Lunch at home (same day as picture above): Suimono soup with choy sum, green beans and tofu, lotus root and carrot & mooli salad which I bought from Tombo, slice of spelt sultana toast.

Yes, I eat a lot of Asian food, despite living in London.
