A look into Asian cuisine

Naomi Pusell

Over the following weeks I will be conducting an autoethnographic study that explores my experience with both Asian cuisine that I am yet to try and Asian snacks and delicacies on my blog account. Everyone has tried the common Asian foods like fried rice and pad Thai, through this project I intend to explore less common foods and show my autoethnographical response to these. I have been inspired to follow this idea, as many Asian delicacies are unknown to me. I intend to approach this through a series of blog posts writing about my experiences of the aesthetic of the food. The taste, smell and texture. This will be accompanied via photos and possibly videos.

When you mentioned the treats, I noticed Yakult which I used to drink when I was younger but never realized it was Japanese.
    When you visit the city to try some Asian cuisine, I recommend going to Papparich for Malaysian food since they have a wide variety and it’s honestly quite delicious (although a bit spicy at the same time). Bread Top and the Fujipan Japanese Bakery are both great places to try some Asian baked goods you wouldn’t find at your average Baker’s Delight. As long as you do your research to make sure the food you’re trying is actually eaten overseas in these Asian countries, I feel like you have a well-thought out project on your hands.
