Dining | Title Card | Food For Thought

Food For Thought was built on the idea of bringing expertise and food knowledge to the greater public, and this is generally achieved through our Restaurant Reviews and Bar Reviews, detailing our food experience at featured restaurants, our Food Guides, a compilation of the best street food briefing its history and recommendations, and from time to time, Drink Guides, with an informative selection on what and where to drink. If you like to take a gander at your own, you can always have a browse at our humble Cook Book to see if any recipes there are of your liking.


“How would your life be different if…You were conscious about the food you ate, the people you surround yourself with, and the media you watch, listen to, or read? Let today be the day…You pay attention to what you feed your mind, your body, and your life. Create a nourishing environment conducive to your growth and well-being today.”
— Steve Maraboli
