Rückblick, die Zweite – Top Ten der meistgelesenen Artikel 2012

Ingesamt hat das Jahr 2012 66.925 Seitenaufrufe für blindtastingclub.net gebracht, wobei die meisten Besucher über Suchmaschinen den Weg zum Club gefunden haben. Dies dürfte auch der maßgebliche Grund für die Rangordnung der meistgelesenen Artikel sein. Man könnte fast von Google Trends reden und es leuchtet auch ein, dass die Mehrheit eher nach Restaurants fahndet als nach Weinen. Weinliebhaber sind immer noch in der Minderheit bzw. es wird sich mehr Mühe gegeben ein gutes Restaurant zu finden als einen guten Wein, könnte man denken. Werten will ich das jetzt nicht, das passt schon. Hier ist die Top 10: Read the rest of this entry »

Tangkak Beef Noodles, Kuala Lumpur

image

It’s been quite a while since I’m back from Malaysia but I still didn’t share all there was to share. This is another haven for lovers of beef soup in Kuala Lumpur. A friend who knows my addiction for all that is food or wine brought me there on a quiet afternoon. The place wasn’t busy at all and had really no appeal on its own except maybe that you don’t have to eat on the street (well, I don’t mind). But the food is really convincing. You get a nice clear and rich beef broth with the noodles of your choice and topping of choice. My own bowl was topped with juicy and tender slices of beef tenderloin – what more you need to be happy?
This shop is apparently quite new and an outlet of an already very successful beef noodle brand. It is located on Jalan Imbi in the centre of Kuala Lumpur. Here’s a report on it in The Star.

Chow Kit Market, Kuala Lumpur

When travelling and discovering new countries and cities, there’s always one place which is a must to go for me: the market. There you can instantly get an idea of the country’s culture, the way of life, preferences and of course local specialties.

Thus, if you happen to travel to Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, you should plan a morning visit of the Chow Kit market (named after the neighborhood it is in). It is the biggest so called “wet market” in the city and far away from usual tourists paths. There you can also buy spices and dried chilies as a gift to bring home and if you have the opportunity to cook in Malaysia also very fresh and inexpensive fish and shrimp.

Just one advice: don’t wear your favorite shoes since the floor is quite “wet”. Here are my impressions from the last visit:
