My Fiance and I are traveling throughout Southeast Asia from January 10, 2012 – whenever our money runs out, hopefully summertime 2012. We don’t have much of a plan, except that our flight goes to Bangkok, and after our one-month visa expires, we are flying to Ho Chi Minh on February 8, with a 3-month multiple entry visa.
We got pretty sick of eating Pad Thai and Thai random meat soup and were dreaming of Butter Bretze, French Baguettes, Cheese, and pizza. Now that we’re in Ho Chi Minh, our bread cravings (no where to be found in Thailand) have been satisfied. We fell in love with HCM, and are currently looking to rent a serviced apartment for one month before heading to Cambodia, Laos, and Indonesia.
I will try and update as much as possible; because we’ve been eating from mobile street stalls and markets, I cannot always provide an address, so I will be writing my posts in a different style than I usually do. Please keep up with our journey by checking my blog weekly!
We look forward to eating our way through Southeast Asia until I go to Graduate School in the fall!

We were lucky enough to be in one of my favorite terminals at the airport, where they have slightly better than food court options. We were looking at packaged sandwiches, when we came across this lovely joint. The sandwiches, pizzas, and salads looked so good. The Prosciutto Mozzarella was better than the Mozzarella Caprese, and I actually thought it was really good. They toast the sandwiches and you get a side of Hummus (the best option), Cous Cous, or Pasta Salad. The food is pretty expensive ($10), but not much more than the packaged sandwiches, and definitely worth it.

This was actually already on my wishlist before we decided to go to Saratoga Springs, and when we walked past it I recognized the name, so we had to go in. They also own the bakery next door, which had really wonderful looking bread. There was a wait, so we sat near the entrance, but when the owner saw us he sort of ushered the hostess over to give us a seat. It was dimly lit, with one long bench row with a mirror behind it. It was one of those restaurants where you’re almost sitting on top of the people next to you. I ordered the Polenta Fries and the Ravioli appetizers as my meal, and Julian had the Mushroom Pizza (Roasted Mushrooms, Taleggio Cheese, Baked Egg, and Truffle Oil). The ravioli were melt-in-your-mouth delicious, but even so, I felt that they were overpriced. The pizza was easily on my top 5 best I’ve ever had list. It was truly phenomenal. We were so happy with our meals. Also, the bathroom had a unique mural on the walls.

On October 30th, Bard hosted a Farm-to-Table event, costing only $10 per person. Julian and I went, not really knowing what to expect, but loving the idea of “Farm-to-Table,” which has become really popular lately. It was a buffet with kale salad and fresh dressing, a squash pasta bake, meatballs, potato salad, and the best darn apple pie I’ve ever had, with fresh whipped cream of course! The apples came from Rose Hill Farm and the unsalted butter from Ronny Brook Farm. Me-oh-my-oh-Pie bake shop as well as John Paul Sliva and two Bard students made all 34 pies. Yum!
