The 14 Favorite Asian dishes from the FW Adventure.

Here at the end of the Asian part of our Foodie’s Wanderlust Adventure, we wanted to make a quick pause to highlight our favourite Asian inspired dishes. They are all either easy to make, super delicious or both. These are the recipes that will definitely be cooked many times in our kitchen, explored further to see how they taste with different ingredients and shared constantly with friends. 

So excited to be already here. Only 14 more countries to eat-xplore. It’s been a fabulous journey, full of deliciousness, burned food, incredible recipes, smoke, explosions, good and bad photographs, lots of boiling and lots of troubles. And we’ve enjoyed every single bit of it, the good, the bad and the better. So here’s a list of the betters of Asia. Hope you enjoy and be inspired by them.
