Megsy Food, Food & Drink Tours

There is plenty of fun poked at UK food. But is it really that bad? And what the hell is “UK food” anyway? Growing up in Australia I had heard plenty about the motherland – England. My grandparents migrated in the late 50’s, and much of Aussie and British culture is honestly very similar. But, there are aspects that are very different. I had heard many stories of the cold winters, the …

TOMMO EATS SOMETHING TERRIBLE. Boiled egg with a difference? This is it. At 18 days into incubation, fertilised duck eggs are robbed from their mothers and boiled up to serve hungry Filipinos. This is one of the holy grails of strange food. The thing that amazed me most was that these are not a rare, impossible to find delicacy. In the Philippines you can find balut on every street corner. …

With influences from Sichuan and central Asian countries, Xinjiang province offers up some interesting fusion. Hitting Urumqi after spending a month in Mongolia there was only one thing we had on our minds, vegetables and any meat that was not lamb!

Tommo Food, Tommo-Eats-Something-Terrible, Video Blogs

TOMMO EATS SOMETHING TERRIBLE. For weird food eaters, Wangfujang Night Market in Beijing is well known as a culmination of many of China’s stranger “delicacies”. This maybe true, and if you have a large and frivolous wallet then perhaps you can afford to sample them all.
