Girona: Game of Thrones Film Location Guide!

Are you a GoT fan coming to Girona, Spain?

I was touring Barcelona at that time, when I had a geek out moment, as I found out one of the filming locations for Game of Thrones was just 30-minutes away from me! Braavos, Oldtown, and Kings Landing! If these places are familiar, then the historic medieval city of Girona might be worth a quick train ride away!

Girona, Spain is located 98 km from Barcelona near the border of France. You’ll see why the well-preserved historical city with its winding alleys, arches, towers and city walls makes it a perfect location for the HBO hit series.

Here’s my DIY travel guide from Barcelona to Girona…

Gaudi Experience in Barcelona, Spain! @Klook

Barcelona is a mesmerizing seaside Spanish town, that I completely fell in love with!

It’s bursting with culture, UNESCO world heritage sites, Gaudí masterpieces, markets, delicious tapas and even fantastic beaches!

Plus it’s home to Barcelona’s number 1 attraction, the spectacular Sagrada Familia.

With so much to see and do, it’s tough to decide especially if you only have two days. Here’s a sample itinerary of my 2-days solo trip to Spain…

Indonesia: Emerging Hub of Quality Food Ingredients #FiAsia2018

When people speak of Indonesia, the first things that come to mind are the beautiful islands of Bali and Sulawesi, or the bustling city and historic culture of Jakarta. While these do make a good representation of Indonesia, there’s something more than just vibes and economics that come into play that make it such a great country.

Indonesia has at least 6,000 more islands than the Philippines – and both countries are blessed with lush greens and the abundance of nature’s gifts. The difference is in the fact that Indonesia has realized how these gifts – and I’m not just talking about sights – can play a role in economics and food culture of the world.Read more

KAM’S Roast Goose(Hong Kong): Better than Yat Lok or Yun Kee?

Related blog post: Kam’s Roast in Manila: How Does it Compare to HK?

Kam’s Roast Goose is a Cantonese style BBQ restaurant in the heart of Wan Chai Hong Kong. The establishment has won numerous awards for excellence and quality and was awarded its first Michelin Star in 2014. 

The busy restaurant sells around 100 geese per day that are shipped in daily from China and prepared in-house each morning.

Kam’s only uses Black Headed Geese which are 2.8-2.9 kilos each.  The relatively small geese are leaner and much tastier when compared to their more common counterparts.

The key to Kam’s success is that the geese are prepared using the freshest of ingredients and prepared with a tried-and-true recipe that has been handed down for generations.

Ask anybody in Hong Kong where to find the best goose and they will tell you Kam’s is the place to go.

Kams7Hardy Kam is the founder of Kam’s Roast Goose and 3rd generation restaurateur of the Kam Family. His grandfather Mr. Kam Shui Fai and father, Mr. Kam Kinsen Kwan founded the internationally acclaimed Yung Kee Restaurant in Central Hong Kong.

Hardy branched out to open Kam’s Roast Goose in 2014 and was awarded his first Michelin Star soon after, only having been operational for 4 months.

Hardy claims his success stems from running a small-scale operation and preserving the legacy that his family started. Quality ingredients and traditional Cantonese techniques, along with his hands on approach ensure customers have a pleasant experience and a delicious meal.
