  • Say Hello To Mazulu Halal Beef Noodle's Second Outlet At Tokyo Station

    After their first outlet at Jimbocho, Mazulu Halal Beef Noodle has opened their second outlet at one of the busiest stations in Japan, Tokyo Station.  The Mazulu Halal Beef Noodle Tokyo Station has also been rated AAA by CrescentRating. At the Mazulu Halal Beef Noodle Tokyo Station, no alcohol is served in the premises. Mazulu Halal Beef Noodle is certified by the Nippon Asia Halal Association (NAHA) of Japan.  Image Credit: Mazulu Halal Beef Noodle What makes the Tokyo Station different from the outlet at Jimbocho is that at this outlet, there are nine types of noodle to choose from – Futome no sankakumen (Thick and Triangular Noodle) Sankakumen (Triangular Noodle) Gokubuto no hiramen (Extremely Thick Noodle)  Futome no hiramen (Wide and Flat Noodle) Hiramen (Thin and Flat Noodle) Futomen (Thick Noodle) Chuubutomen (Medium Thickness Noodle) Hosomen (Thin Noodle) Gokuhosomen (Extremely Thin Noodle) Image Credit: Mazulu Halal Beef Noodle At Mazulu, every bowl of beef noodle is made from scratch. From the hand-pulled Lamian (a type of Chinese noodles) to the hot beef broth made by simmering beef bones with 10 different medicinal spices for hours. Top it off with coriander, leaf garlic,  and thinly sliced beef. This bowl of goodness can make you feel right at home or could perhaps have you gulping gallons of water if you're not careful with their Chinese chilli oil. But from our experience, it's not that bad! via GIPHY If you're stopping by Mazulu Halal Beef Noodle Tokyo Station and have yet to perform your prayers, the restaurant is located just minutes away from a nearby prayer space at the JR East Travel Service Center.  Location: JR East Travel Service Center, Marunouchi North Gate, Tokyo Station BuildingAvailable Time: 08:30 AM to 07:00 PM (Weekdays), 08:30 AM to 05:00 PM (Weekends & Public Holidays) Background Story via GIPHY Takeru Seino, the manager of Mazulu Halal Beef Noodle Restaurant had actually gone to Lanzhou to look for a Lamian stall that would be willing to train him to make Lamian noodles. During his study in Beijing, he had fallen in love with the dish after tasting it for the first time while he was in Beijing. It was after multiple failed attempts of trying of recreating Lamian noodles that he finally resorted to taking a trip to Lanzhou to get himself professionally trained. After much persuasion, Mazulu agreed to train him and he finally mastered the skill of handcrafting these noodles to perfection and later opened his own shop in Japan. Indeed every strand of Lanzhou lamian is a work of art by craftsmen.  Address: GranTokyo South Tower B1F, 1-9-2 Marunouchi, Chiyoda-ku, Tokyo 100-6690Opening Hours: 11:00 AM to 10:30 PM (Mon-Sat)                          11:00 AM to 09:30 PM (Sundays, Public Holidays)                          *Note: The store will close when the broth is sold outContact No.: +81-3-6268-0323 Directions from Tokyo Station 3 minutes walk to Yurakucho area, after exiting Yaesu South Exit Website  ...

  • What To Do And Who To Call When You Encounter A Travel Disaster While On Your Trip

    Bags? Check. Tickets? Check. Itinerary? Check. Excitement? Check. Emergency solutions? Hmmm... ​ Travelling can be one of the absolute electrifying undertakings to which people look forward to. But not every journey can conclude with the finest of memoirs due to unforeseen hindrances which you would have not once thought of been thrown your way.  They could come in all shapes and sizes; it could be a travel-associated emergency, a natural disaster or even an ill-fated unplanned occurrence. The last thing on your mind would be an overseas emergency when all you should think about is the type of food you will devour, which tourist attractions to visit or envisaging about the next Instagram-worthy selfie you would be posting to boast about your journey.  Even with the best of planning, episodes like these can throw a real wrench in the vacation you so eagerly look forward to. Sufficient planning is essential to successfully circumnavigate a travel-related disaster, what to do during a natural disaster and to ensuring ways and means on how to prepare for a natural disaster.  ​ For obvious reasons, natural disasters cannot be prevented but can be prepared for along with several other common travel-related catastrophes. Here is a guide to some basic travel advice to help you start preparing for the worst. General guidelines Before departing for your trip ensure you have with you the local emergency hotline numbers like the police, fire brigade, hospital etc. kept in an accessible location like your wallet. (Generally, the number 112 will connect to help in many countries while 911 will direct your call to local emergency services as well) To be on the safe side it would be wise to leave back a copy of the itinerary of your trip as well as keeping the folks back home informed on your whereabouts as well as your new contact details (like a local number if you wish to obtain one). They should be aware of the medium on how to reach you and vice versa in case of a crisis. Pack a first aid kit which comprises of basic medical aids like crepe bandages, plasters, balm, motion sickness tablets, over-the-counter prescriptions for diarrhoea, Aspirin etc. that can cure any traveller's ailments. If you are carrying valuables with you do not take them out when you go exploring. Lock them up in hotel safes. If you tote them around from place to place this will increase the likelihood of it being lifted from your bag. Lost documentation (passports, identification cards, credit cards etc.) No matter how much effort you convey your forces into when trying to safeguard your belongings there are probabilities of such cases arising where you either fall victim to pickpockets or you misplace important documentation which would be deemed as essential when travelling. Perfectly the first thing you would want to do is contact local authorities and file a report by providing essentials like the date and time and supposed location of the AWOL item(s) and to ensure that your documents are not being utilized as a pawn for identity theft. If it's a passport that has been misplaced and MIA, a photocopy of the lost passport can speed up the process of obtaining a fresh one. In the case of lost cards, contact your bank straight away and have them deactivate your card to evade your entire savings being drained out. Medical Emergency Ailings are one of the most contributing factors for people having to cut short their vacation time due to improper planning before and after an episode of such. Here's a guide of what to do before, during and after a medical disaster. Before  Make sure you are kept up-to-date with regards to health check-ups and prescriptions for any sort of tablets and drugs that you are consuming. Your best option would be to visit your consulting doctor, before you depart, and acquire the essential medicine and vaccination to avoid any sort of health and medical obstacles.  For example, if you are travelling to high altitude locations there are certain prescribed tablets like Diamox which needs to be taken. Yellow Fever vaccination could also be a considerable example when visiting the African countries. If you have health insurance, inquire about the coverage you have on an international basis and be wary of keeping all bills intact in order to claim the charges from your travel/medical insurance. During  Should you encounter a medical emergency during your travels, the key is to not panic. Seek local medical services by contacting one of the nearest hospitals. To make the process smoother ensure you have the local medical emergency contact numbers with you. If you have a language barrier and if situated in a crowd, wild hand gestures and hand signals prove to be effective for circumstances like this where prompt attention is required. Another alternative would be getting in touch with your travel insurance company and by doing so you will be directed to the nearest emergency room whilst being provided with language translation facilities. After  Ensure you are updated with your relevant medical emergency and take measures to certify that the remainder of your trip is not ruined yet again by another similar occurrence. Visit the local hospital, if need be, for a check-up to stay at the top of your game. Stranded at an airport Being a very common travel-related disaster, unfortunately for us nomads, it is not something that can be prevented if you are left stranded in an airport due to inclement weather conditions, strikes, delays or even lengthy transits. As soon as you are brought to notice with regards to any delay, call your travel insurance provider. Their trip delay coverage policy may cover a hotel room while all matters are resolved and until when you're cleared to depart.  If your situation does not meet the requirements for you to claim such a facility your next best bet would be contacting the airport's passenger assistance department. This facility is present in many airports where they provide accommodation and if you're lucky, maybe an allowance which you can pamper yourself with. P.s. There are worse places to be left marooned in the world. At least the airport has got Duty Free. Natural disasters Tsunamis, earthquakes, cyclones can unquestionably kill a trips buzz. Preventing a natural disaster of this calibre is close to impossible. To be on the safe side research the weather of the travel destination and avoid dicey seasons like heavy rainfalls or disaster warnings. But if you're feeling frisky and nevertheless wish to carry on with your travel plans be acquainted with the risks before you leave. Contact the hotel and the airline and make inquiries about the policies and procedures adopted during a disaster. Find out about their protocol for refunds when a natural disaster hits. If you've already arrived at your hotel and if a natural disaster strikes, follow the lead of the hotel staff as a lot of the hotels have emergency exits and evacuation means such as utilizing the basement as a cover during tornados. There's little benefit in waiting as evacuation zones fill up instantly. Additional Assistance  Corporations such as Contingency Consulting, located in San Diego, CA offer a wide range of high-risk travel and survival training. In the United States, Canada and Australia, the Travellers Aid organization provides a plethora of services which contributes towards the assistance for travellers. Overt worrying about situations like the above will ruin the enthusiastically anticipated vibes one should receive when travelling. However, taking simple precautions and knowing your way about on how to receive emergency-related support will diminish the 'worst case scenario' sort of obstacles that could transpire....

  • Battle of the Food: Best Halal Japanese Eateries In SG

    From Sushi to Ramen to Udon, Japanese food has never failed to entice me. But what makes me more excited is if they are Halal! But of course, food tastes best when you have companions; somewhere you can head for lunch with your colleagues or somewhere you can dine in for dinner with your family or friends. I can still remember the fragrance of pearl rice in a bowl of Tendon and the springy strand of a Ramen noodle hanging from my chopsticks. These are the littlest things that make me want to revisit the restaurant, bringing friends and families along to share the joy of Japanese food. I've narrowed down to 5 best halal Japanese restaurants in Singapore based on its taste, location, and price. Here are my top picks! Yoroshiku! 1. The Ramen Stall Gyudon Torched Salmon Sushi Beef Ramen Picture Credit: The Ramen Stall Facebook Isn't it amazing that you can eat Halal Ramen for supper? Yes! You read that right. The Ramen Stall opens till 5am every day and this calls for all the night owls who are around Arab Street, or even anywhere else. The Ramen Stall offers everything Japanese; Sushi, Sashimi, Donburi and of course, Ramen.Price: Worth every single cent that I wouldn't mind splurging myselfAmbiance: The Ramen Stall is definitely a place for you to hang out with your family and friends or even a date night with your partner!Food: Everything worth trying if you are a Japanese food lover like me. As a spicy food lover, I recommend the Volcano Ramen which is also one of the best sellers. Challenge yourself to the level of spiciness to this Ramen if you dare. I'll salute you if you don't hiss due to the spiciness at level 3.Location: Located at North Bridge Road, it is at a walkable distance from Bugis MRT and easily spotted. Address: 787 North Bridge Road, Singapore 198755Contact: (+65) 6655 0800Opening Hours: 5PM to 5AM (Mon-Fri)                          12PM to 5AM (Sat-Sun, Public Holiday)Website: www.theramenstall.com.sg Facebook 2. Hei Sushi Fresh Salmon Picture Credit: Hei Sushi Facebook Hei Sushi restaurant is no longer foreign to most of the food lovers out there. They serve a variety of Japanese food; Ramen, Udon, Soba, Ju, Sushi, and Sashimi. It will definitely leave you spoilt for choices. Price: Average restaurant price but worth it! Do check out the lunch deal from time to time.Ambiance: Hei Sushi is a great restaurant for small catch-up time with friends over a bowl of piping hot Ramen/Udon or even family time over sushi platters. I should say that this restaurant is kid-friendly as they offer a kid's menu for the little ones.Food: My personal favorite is the Gyu Udon, sliced beef Udon bathed in Udon soup. The piping hot Udon soup is soothing and will leave your glasses clouded! Apart from Hana Maki (salmon rolled over sushi rice, topped with mayo and fish roe), do try the Cheesy Beef Neta, a fried sushi topped with cheese and sliced beef. These two types of sushi will never fail to satisfy me as the flavors melt in your mouth!Location: Various outlets Islandwide. Personally, I find some of the outlets are out of my ways like Downtown East but if the cravings are there, traveling shouldn't be a problem.

Living up to the restaurant's name, you may also find Western and Japanese fusion dishes such as Karaage Aglio Olio and Grilled Angus Beef Curry to name a few.Price: AffordableAmbiance: Hanna's Fusion has been one of my favorite picks when I am craving for Udon. Not only because of the affordable price for a bowl of Udon but also the secluded area in an electronic mall, therefore making it less crowded. I can fairly say that this restaurant is best for a quiet date with your partner, minus the romantic ambiance. Do take note that the restaurant closes at 8pm so have an early dinner if you planned to do so.Location: Very convenient as Sim Lim Tower is just walking distance from Rochor MRT.

They also serve Tendon (tempura with rice) and the best thing is that you can choose if you want it to be with pearl rice or matcha soba.Price: Definitely worth the moneyAmbiance: It is a bummer that this store is only a kiosk and therefore, it is only available for takeouts.Food: As a tempura lover, this must have been one of my favorite and the nearest taste I can get as to those from Japan. You can dip the crunchy tempura into either one of the sauces that they offered like wasabi mayo or truffle cream but for me, the original sauce is always the best. Do try the Chicken Tendon too as it comes with onsen egg and that was the first thing that caught my eyes.

  • Ghee Roti with Beef Sambal: When You Need Some Comfort Food

    Who doesn’t love to feast on a yummy Ghee Roti dipped in Beef Sambal during the time of Iftar? Also, if you are feeling hungry for some Indian Cuisine, this  'roti and sambal' dish may seem simple but it will definitely fill you up for Iftar.  If you are in-charge for whipping up a meal for Iftar, we got you covered. This Ghee Roti and Beef Sambal meal is not only simple to make but also exceptionally good and satisfying. So don’t worry about having to spend a lot of time running around the kitchen preparing a list of curries that go well with the roti.   Step 1: Making Ghee Roti Ingredients 250g of all purpose flour A pinch of salt 2 tablespoons of Ghee (clarified butter) Sufficient lukewarm water 1 Egg   Method In a large mixing bowl add your flour, two tablespoons of Ghee and mix with your hands to form a crumb-like texture. Beat the egg and add it into the mixture along with a pinch of salt. Mix well. Add lukewarm water a little at a time to form a smooth dough. The dough should not stick to your fingers but should have a smooth texture. Knead the dough for a few minutes. Set the dough aside at room temperature for about 20-30 minutes, to form a smooth and elastic dough. After, continue kneading the dough on a floured surface for about 5 minutes. Divide the dough into balls and roll out the dough to form a thin roti.  You can either fry the roti to give it a crispy texture or lightly pan fry the roti. To fry it, heat 250 ml of oil in a frying pan along with 3 tablespoons of Ghee. Fry on both sides till golden brown.  To lightly pan fry the roti, add a tablespoon of vegetable oil along with one tablespoon of Ghee and heat it up. Sear the roti on both sides until golden brown. Tip: If you are unable to find Ghee in your local supermarket, you can use salted butter as a substitute.   Step 2: Whipping Up the Beef Sambal Ingredients 500g of Beef 2 cloves of Garlic (chopped) 1 teaspoon of Turmeric  A small root of Ginger (chopped) 2 teaspoons of Chili powder 3 large Onions (chopped into small strands) 2 teaspoons of Chili flakes 1 Red Bell Pepper (chopped) 1 teaspoon of Black Pepper powder 1 tablespoon of Soy Sauce ½ teaspoon of Cumin powder 1 tablespoon of Sugar 1 teaspoon of Garam Masala 2 tablespoons of Oil 1 teaspoon of Coriander powder A handful of chopped Parsley Juice of 2 Lime/ 1 lemon  Salt to taste ½ teaspoon of Curry powder   Method Chop the beef into bite sizes. In a pressure cooker, add chopped beef, Chili powder, Tumeric, Coriander powder, Cumin powder, Curry powder, a teaspoon of salt, and juice of one lime or half a lemon. Add sufficient water to cover the meat. Cook the meat until tender. After the meat has been cooked, drain the stock from the meat, and set the meat aside to cool. Once the beef is cool enough, tear the beef into strips or chop them futher into smaller cubes. In a large saucepan, heat 2 tablespoons of oil. Add chopped ginger and garlic and sauté until golden. Then add chopped onions. (Don't let it go brown) And Garam Masala and Chili flakes into the mixture, along with bell peppers and mix well. Add Soy Sauce, along with a tablespoon of sugar and give it a good stir. Finally, add the beef strips or cubes. If you prefer more spice add chili powder to your preference. Squeeze in some lime/lemon juice on the sambal. Garnish with chopped parsley on top and serve warm Tip: You can also substitute beef with chicken. This beautiful roti works with this sambal really well, but if you prefer to jazz it up a little and serve it with more dishes like chicken tikka, chicken tikka masala, kormas, you'll have a feast served for your family! Have fun creating different types of varieties to go alongside this Ghee Roti!...

  • 8 Dishes you Must Try in Jordan

    Jordan is an amazing country to visit, with oodles of history and culture. A big part of this culture, as with any Middle Eastern country, is the delicious food. The Jordanian cuisine shares a lot of similarities with its neighboring countries - namely, the abundant use of olive oil, eggplants, tomatoes, yoghurt, nuts, spices, and so forth. Grains like rice, bulgar, wheat, and freekah are widely used. The most commonly used meat is lamb, but goat and camel are also pretty popular. However, Jordanian cuisine is different enough, such that it can stand on its own. With delicious rice dishes and slow cooked or grilled meat, as well as sweet desserts full of nuts and spices, your Muslim-friendly tour to Jordan is sure to leave your belly bursting with yummy food. As it is a Muslim-majority country, you also won't have trouble finding Halal food in Jordan. Just take a walk down the streets and you'll come upon lots of Jordanian street food, Jordanian sweets, and more. Here's some of the best Jordanian food that you should look out for: Find a Halal Hotel in Jordan Go on a Halal Trip to Jordan with us   1. Mansaf Picture Credit - Evan Carroll, commons.wikimedia.org  Ask anyone who knows anything about Jordan's food, and they'll tell you that you can't complete your Halal trip to Jordan without trying Mansaf, the country's national dish. Tender meat marinated in fermented yoghurt is cooked and layered with thin flatbreads and deliciously aromatic rice, the whole lot cooked with plenty of spices. It is served with jameed, a tangy yogurt sauce and even more flatbreads. The meat used is traditionally lamb (or even camel), but you can also find versions of chicken Mansef as well. Mansef is traditionally served in a large platter that is meant for sharing, as most Jordanian food is. 2. Kibbeh Picture Credit - Bazel, commons.wikimedia.org Kibbeh is to the Middle East as meatballs are to Italians. Kibbeh is a traditional Levant dish that is made using minced meat (most often lamb, goat, or camel), mixed with onions, bulgar wheat and spices like nutmeg, allspice, clove, and cinnamon. This mixture is then shaped into a ball or lemon shape, and fried or even baked. Kibbeh are an essential feature of the mezze platter.   3. Mezze Picture credit - Unai Guerra, commons.wikimedia.org If you want to try Halal Jordanian dishes, but aren't sure what choices to go with (because they all sound delicious, let's be honest), then you might want to start off with the mezze, a starting platter that features all kinds of traditional Jordanian food treats, many of which you've probably heard of. A typical mezze would comprise any combination of deep-fried kibbeh, samosas (dough balls stuffed with meat, onions, pine nuts), falafel (chickpea fritters), creamy labaneh (strained yogurt), and dips made of crushed beans or vegetables, like hummus (chickpeas), Baba ghaboush (eggplants), ful medames (fava beans), and more. Arabic salads (tabouleh, fattoush), pickled vegetables, olives, halloumi, and flatbreads also make an appearance.   4. Maqluba Picture Credit - aboveandbelow.info The word “Maqluba” translates literally to “upside down”. This is because this slow-cooked rice dish is traditionally cooked with the meat and vegetables at the bottom. When it is served, the entire pan is turned upside down so as to display the beautiful colors of the red tomatoes and golden eggplants, in a tidy little rice “cake”. This dish goes back to the 13th century Kitab al-Tabikh, a collection of recipes from medieval Baghdad. It is most commonly prepared in homes, and every family has their own special recipe that they swear is the best! Although rare, you may come upon it in a menu in one or two restaurants. Otherwise, just befriend a local and get yourself invited for dinner – simple!   5. Kanafeh Picture Credit - Elif Ayse, commons.wikimedia.org Kanafeh if a traditional dessert that features thin strands of pastry piled on top of tangy cream or cheese. It is then soaked with a sweet sugar syrup flavored with orange blossom or rose water and garnished with crushed pistachios. Although this dish originated from Palestine, it is said to have spread across the Levant during the Ottoman rule. Today, different countries have their own slightly different version of this delicious dessert. Perfect for special occasions, or even as an afternoon treat, one bite of the Kanafeh will keep you coming back for more!   6. Manakesh Picture Credit - Mervat Salman, commons,wikimedia.org Manakesh is one of the most popular Jordanian street foods. It's often called the Arabic “pizza”, and can be eaten for breakfast, lunch or just as a snack! Similar to a pizza, a flatbread dough is rolled to a round shaped and topped with za'atar (a herb and spice mixture). It can then be baked as is with a drizzle of olive oil, or topped off with eggs, halloumi (a type of white cheese), and/or ground meat. Manakesh is traditionally baked in a brick oven, also similar to pizza.   7. Zaarb Picture Credit - wadirumjeeptours.com If you hadn't guessed yet, rice is pretty popular in Jordan! Zaarb is another rice dish that is served with meat and vegetables. But what makes this one so special is the way in which the meat is prepared and cooked. For this, a truncated oven called the tabun (traditionally made of clay, but modern versions are made of metal. The meat goes though a long slow-cooking process, after which it emerges in its most tender, fall-off-the-bone, mouthwatering form! It is also a popular campfire dish, with the meat being cooked in a pit filled with hot coals and covered with sand.   8. Tea & Coffee Picture Credit - arabiczeal.com Jordanians are one of the most hospitable people in the world, and one of their most common customs is sitting down for a cup of tea or coffee with their guests. Even strangers will invite you into their home for a cup of hot liquid gold! But unlike the grandes and big gulps, Turkish tea and coffee is often served in small glasses meant to be downed quickly. The tea is often flavored with cardamon, and the coffee with sage. There is also a difference between Turkish and Arabic coffee, both of which you can find in Jordan.
