Store About us The idea for Adventures Off the Eaten Path came from a trip to London many years ago where I suffered through a lousy tour led by a lazy tour guide. I thought, "I've been here enough, I'll bet i could do a better job! I met some great people, made a lot of contacts, and had a great time too. After working with them for several years, I decided it was time to strike out on my own.
Chino in Flavour, Latino in Spirit
Asian and Oriental Grocery Stores in Bogota – Taiwanese Bakery | M's Adventures
Despite it being the first time that two members of the team had been overseas, and the myriad differing styles of debating that were encountered over the course of the competition, the team pushed through the fast-paced competition under the leadership of team captain Samuel Wittberger, managing to win 5 out of 7 intense rounds against the best Asia had to offer. This was a win that did justice to the efforts of a brand new all JC one team. Samuel also finished as the top 4th speaker of the whole tournament. At the event, the team gained valuable insights on debate strategy, and the friendship of debaters from around Asia. In addition, the team was treated to wonderful performances and local cuisine courtesy of the organizers, making it an extremely enriching and fulfilling journey. The team would like to thank the teachers-in-charge of the ACJC Oratorical and Debating Society, and Mr Poon in particular, for his guidance during the trip for the opportunity to attend this competition.
Perfect - Mr Chew's Chino Latino Bar
A prodigiously talented—and peripatetic—chef, Mr Chang bounced around eateries in the south-east. One day diners at a strip-mall restaurant in suburban Richmond or Atlanta might be eating standard egg rolls and orange chicken; the next, their table would be graced by exquisite pieces of aubergine the size of an index finger, greaselessly fried and dusted with cumin, dried chillies and Sichuan peppercorns. Or by a soup made of pickled mustard greens and fresh sea bass, in its way as hauntingly perfect and austere as a Bach cello suite. A few months later, Mr Chang would move on. He now seems to have settled down, running a string of restaurants bearing his name between Rockville, Maryland, and Virginia Beach.
A successful marriage between Asian flavours and the Latin passion, a trip to this restaurant is a must if you love a healthy serving of culture with your food. It is another entry in the long-list of makan endeavours by Chef Christian Bauer and the namesake Eddie Chew, hot on the heels of their other restaurants like Troika Sky Dining, Fuego and Strato. The dining destination occupies what was formerly a penthouse loft in Wolo Hotel, with the duplex space now hosting various bars, lounges and dining areas, each with a unique ID touch.
