Meet this delightful couple we met while touring at the island of Dhoni. He was 90 years old and she was 89. They are here in paradise with their daughter. You see at first you think what are they doing here, They look like they could not barely walk around to enjoy the island. But we just found this couple so interesting we decided to sit down with them. They told us quite a lot of stories ( well thats what old folks do right?) After a few good laughs and some old jokes (no pun intended) Then they mentioned that they snorkel around the island at least twice a day. A brief nod from their daughter confirmed it as I glanced my awestruck face at her. If these people can enjoy life to the fullest even with such limitations then how much more can we? This is a good reminder that you are never too old to experience paradise!

The mecca of Asian cuisine here in the Maldives. The Asian Wok is one of the Maldives more popular Asian restaurants. The restaurant is famous for their takes on local Maldivian dishes, Sri Lankan, Mongolian and of course Chinese! Upon arriving you get filled with excitement because the aroma starts to invade your senses and your stomach starts wobbling around with joy. The restaurant sported a nice al fresco dining experience under the stars which was a nice distraction while we were waiting for our food.
We ordered stir fried yellow noodles with vegetables, Kutti Rothi which is a kind of stir fried bread with vegetables, Crispy fried tofu which was simple but surprisingly great tasting, a special kind of rice that smelled really nice was served along with a whole plethora of vegetarian fares for our Hindu friend Anil. For me the ultimate surprise was how good the vegetarian dishes were! they were infused with the taste of meat or by some kind of sauce but it was delightful. Stuffing yourself with light vegetables and tofu instead of oily meat is much for satisfying this time around. Don’t get me wrong I am a huge fan of meaty dishes, but today I may consider going veg if the food is this good back home. Another popular fare at the Asian Wok is their iced coffee, it is a good refreshment at any time of the day. It perks you up and cools you down! Ah! the good life! Service was a breeze as can be expect on highly efficient Asian restaurants and the price is really not something you would think about when dining here. I’d pay double and eat here everyday if I could. Good eats!

The Best Indian Food In Town! or so they say
In this city where there is clearly a lack of specialty restaurants for famous cuisine around the world. The restaurant known as the Poppadums is alluring and quite unique.
The Poppadums‘ tables are set out in a “L” shaped fashion which helps in making the place, even though small from being cramped and stuffy.
Unexpectedly there was only few people at the Poppadums during lunch time, but this small lot really looks like its enjoying the food. The menu of Poppadums is typically one you would find on most Indian restaurants. But in a way this restaurants gives away something more of a promising feel that typical food will not taste typical. Let us find out shall we?
With curiosity and excitement we settled for a feast that includes both the old and new fusion Indian delicacies. First on the table was a rather common drink, called a mango lassi which was quite refreshing on a very hot day and it is a tropical island. The mango lassi unfortunately was a little bit on the green mango side a bit sour and no too sweet. Although this fault can easily slide away because the season obviously dictates that ripe mangoes are somewhat hard to find.
For the main meal there are servings of naan bread, chicken biriyani and masala and raita.
The naan bread is the staple in Indian cuisine it is made from unleavened bread and cooked in a rather odd jar like stove, which requires a lot of skill to operate. Make sure you get to see how naan is cooked and made when you get a chance if reflects hundreds of years of Indian culture that defies the ages. The naan was amazing and was served on silver dishes.
Biryani is well as you can expect the taste was typically Indian and it fails to inspire new sensations on our palate. The presentation was also just as how you would expect friend rice with a lot of herbs would look like. But it is within suspicion that everything was not cooked to fuse flavors properly. Poor indeed.
The raita which the Poppadums is known for this side of town is good, but it does not really make up for the fault in the biryani and the naan, which were really important in enjoying Indian cuisine.
We believe that we may just have been on a case of bad timing or was just served a bad batch. Either way we shall see when be get back and hopefully next time the food will be better.
