The Best Chinese Food in Rome?


If you're flying to Rome this month and you'd like to eat some delicious Chinese food, head to the Green T Chinese restaurant located in Via Pie Di Marmo, 28 in Rome's City Center.

The Green T serves both, lunch and dinner and for lunch, they have a fixed priced menu for $8 Euros. They also have an "a la carte" menu.

Spotted By Locals, a travel blog with insider information written by locals, recently posted a story about the Green T. They claimed it was the "best Chinese Restaurant" in Rome. A pretty impressive endorsement by locals don't you think?

A Weekend in Paris


"Weekend Reposant à Paris" - A Restful Weekend in Paris
Story and Photos by Kayra Martinez (FRASW)

Every time I have been to Paris in the past, I have spent most of my time inside the Louvre museum or in the Musee d'Orsay. I've also enjoyed walking the quaint streets of the city while taking many photos, however, it has always been "on the go".

This time, I decided to do it differently. I was invited by a good friend of mine, Alexandra for her birthday party in Paris, so I decided to make this trip a very relaxed weekend.

First, we began celebrating her birthday by toasting champagne with friends at her apartment. Later, we continued this celebration by dancing at the famous "Queen" discotheque and by sipping more champagne. The Queen is a Parisian gay club that has been opened for many years and has a mixed crowd. Every night they have a "theme" night and on Mondays, it's Disco night.

The following day, we went to Hugos, a neighborhood French Cafe that serves traditional French cuisine for a memorable lunch. We ordered Confit de Canard (Duck Confit) for a main course and Creme Brulee for a dessert followed by a nice cup of coffee. Along the way, I took some nice photos of the Eiffel Tower (see photos enclosed) and made time for some "lèche vitrines" or window shopping!

A special treat during the week end was our lunch at the Cafe del'Homme. This is a wonderful restaurant in a magical place located in an exclusive setting in front of the Eiffel Tower. I think it's a popular lunch place for politicians, actors and such and it has an attractive menu of fish, meats and pasta plus some amazing desserts. The entrees can be a little pricey with some costing around 35Euros each, but they are definitely worth it. The cafe boasts large crystal chandeliers, a stunning view of the Eiffel tower and of course, amazing food!

Before heading for the airport for my return home, I made a quick last stop at the luxurious and popular shop Franck et Fils - "a tiny women’s department store that caters to the chic ladies of the 16th with luxury brands like Tods, Burberry and Chanel - On the top floor, there's is a little café for lunch or afternoon tea" - for a little shopping and Voila! my best weekend in Paris thus far!

The "Underground Dining Scene"


Shhhh! Don't tell anyone. There are secret restaurants all over the world hidden behind closed doors. Who knew! Check out this great website list (www.saltshaker.net/underground-dining-scene) - It names by city, some of the "underground" gourmet dining places that have emerged around the world that one only hears about in hushed tones, tweets and Facebook posts. In fact, some of these places require you to make dinner reservations through their Facebook pages! How interesting and unusual don't you think? The furtiveness of it all piques my interest and my appetite!

The New York Time's claims that "“The new trend is to be more in the know instead of buying yourself into places.” Well, I won't make you wait, here's the list. SaltShaker � Underground Dining Scene. You be the judge. Let me know what you think of any place you visit. I'll probably try a couple of them in Buenos Aires this coming month while I fly there and I'll report more about them then soon, I promise!

Until then, enjoy the new trend and the mysterious food spots!


Historical Museum. Moscow


Short Moscow layover? No time to tour the city? No worries, visit the Historical Museum on Red Square, for some fascinating Russian history .

The museum is housed inside a fancy red brick building from the 1870's, directly across St. Basil's Cathedral in Red Square (photo enclosed).

To enter, you must pay an entry fee (about 10 dollars cash). Pre-recorder English guides (highly recommended) are available for an extra fee.

The museum houses a wonderful collection of gold artifacts, ancient manuscripts, old coins, city paintings that show how Moscow grew, religious icons, etc. Plus, one can view the beautifully painted interior ceilings of this historical building.

Check with your concierge for current museum hours of operation before heading for a visit, since the official museum website is not very user friendly.
