SPOT DROPPER is a journal made for the drunken epicure with an appetite for extraordinary grubs. We drop tips on great spots around the world where you can eat well and possibly get wasted along the way.
Boozehound Says: Looking for an inconspicuous drinking place with Korean home cooking? Stray off the standard menu and ask the chef to cook you a spicy clay pot soup with Pollock fish heads. They don’t always have fish heads in stock, but when they do, you’re in for a great treat.
While you wait, start off with some stir-fried cod fish sperm and bean sprouts…a great preemptive hangover cure.
Revisited: Good things don’t last. We discovered that we previously encountered a rare coincidence of exceptional grilling and fish of superb quality. Unfortunately, the latter is no longer evident.

In a restaurant that serves every kind of Japanese food with average taste, we’re surprised to discover the chef’s talent in grilling fish. We were so impressed by the exceptional quality of his craft that we went on to try every single grill fish item on the menu. We are still impressed…
We’re not fans of big chains restaurants with their own in-house souvenir corner, but we couldn’t resist 矢場とん. Miso Pork Chop is one of Nagoya’s most famous treats and we decide to find out what the fuss is about.
We highly recommend the roast cut みそかつ served on a sizzling hot iron plate. Enough said…..we’re gonna order another one!
Our latest discovery for ULTRA spicy hotpot in Shanghai. Their soup base will get you sweating and numbed out all night. If that’s not enough buzz for you, chug a few of their spicy meatballs and be prepared to live on the toilet for the next 3 days.
After repeated trial and comparison, we concluded that 榮興小廚 has the best crispy chicken in town. Juicy and tender on the inside and crispy on the outside, even the cold ones taste good. You don’t need any other dishes. If you’re still hungry, may we suggest a second chicken.
