C’est une délicieuse idée pour voyager. Visiter des pays à la rechercher des goûters les plus savoureux. Melissa Hie est une blogueuse connue pour vouloir dévorer le monde, découvrez son savoureux compte Instagram @GirlEatWorld 🍦
Rien n’est plus contagieux que les voyages, à part les goûters bien sûr, à méditer. En tout cas, Melissa Hie a eu la bonne idée de conjuguer les deux et de parcourir le monde à la recherche des mets les plus délicieux. Son compte Instagram @GirlEatWorld met en avant tous ces mets qu’elle a la chance de dévorer dans chacun des pays qu’elle a pu visiter. Des boissons, des desserts, des trucs étranges mais qui donnent bien envie à chaque fois.
L’idée lui est venu en 2013 lors de son premier voyage en bagpack à travers l’Europe. “Je ne me sentais pas de demander à des étrangers de prendre des photos de moi et je ne suis pas trop friand de selfies, mais je suis toujours en train de manger donc je pris des photos de cette nourriture dans quelques places assez touristiques et mémorables, et j’ai publié ces photos sur mon Facebook. J’ai reçu de nombreux commentaires positifs, alors j’ai continué.” Aujourd’hui, elle cumule plus de 320 000 abonnés sur Instagram et elle les fait bien saliver à chaque photo (moi aussi)

Happy Monday! Missing this Hello Kitty donut at the organized chaos of the shibuya crossing in Tokyo 🇯🇵🍩. The Shibuya “scramble” crossing is well known for people watching and a must visit while in Tokyo. When the traffic lights turn red, pedestrians would pour out from all sides and meet in the middle of the intersection. I find it very calming to watch from afar. Also, Hachiko statue is in one of the corners of this intersection! — I’ve been spending some time re-learning Japanese through iknow.jp and I love it so much! To my fellow 日本語 learners, i highly recommend checking out iknow.jp @iknowjp to review your kanji, listening skills and vocabularies. It makes the learning process super fun compared to using flash cards! However, this app will not teach Japanese from scratch – you have to use this in conjunction of a text book since they do not teach you grammar. I wish apps like this existed when I was learning Japanese in college! You can also learn other language like Chinese and English for SAT learners #iKnowjp
Last one from the Hong Kong trip – fishball on skewers! Meat skewers are popular choice for a delicious quick snack in Hong Kong. Just point to a skewer that interests you and the food vendor will boil it on the spot and serve with some soy sauce. Thank you @skyscannersg and HK tourism board for sending me to Hong Kong! Prior to this, I had been a long time user of @skyscannersg, it’s literally my first stop whenever I have crazy travel ideas in my head! #skyscannersg #girleatHK Next stop is PENANG, MALAYSIA this weekend with @singasongjess for even more food! :D 🇲🇾 Une photo publiée par Food & Travel ❤️ (@girleatworld) le
Yes, I’m back in Hong Kong again! I have featured tons of HK eats on my two visits here this year (browse #GirlEatHK to see them), so here is something a bit different. This picture depicts two of my favorite things from Hong Kong: First, the insanely condensed yet photogenic and vibrant urban architecture that is unique to Hong Kong. This gorgeous building is known as the Transformers building as it was used on the set of Transformers 4 movie. I first saw this location on @ecolephoto’s instagram and just had to give it a visit! Second, Vitasoy milk – an iconic drink which was originated from Hong Kong. Love this stuff! // Add me on snapchat for random HK snaps: ▶️ 👻 GirlEatWorld 👻
🇸🇬 Happy 50th birthday Singapore! Tonight, this waterfront area will be booming with Golden Jubilee celebration of national day parade and firework displays! Though I am not physically in Singapore this weekend to celebrate, every day spent living in this country is a reminder of how lucky I am to call this place home. We celebrate 50 years of peace and security, how we turned vulnerabilities into strengths, and most of all, our journey from Third World to First as one united people, regardless of race, language or religion – PM Lee Hsien Loong #sg50 Une photo publiée par Food & Travel ❤️ (@girleatworld) le
#GirlEatWorld Empanadas at Mallorca, Spain 🇪🇸 by my friend @sceetheworld. Empanadas is a savory pastry with various fillings like meat (but of course), veggies and potatoes. Though it is said to be originated from Portugal 🇵🇹, it’s also very popular in Spain, latin american countries and even my home country Indonesia 🇮🇩 thanks to Portuguese colonization. But going back to the origin, empanadas is said to have been influenced by samosas from India through Portuguese colony in Goa. I can definitely see the similarity and am super fascinated by how food have traveled and transformed around the world! Une photo publiée par Food & Travel ❤️ (@girleatworld) le
🐱💖🎀 Too cute to eat!!! When i saw this Hello Kitty dim sum featured by @danielfooddiary, my first reaction was “I MUST HAVE IT NOW 😱”. So, off I went to the Hello Kitty restaurant which offers tons of Kitty-themed dishes! Traditionally, this is Liu Sha Bao aka Salted Egg Yolk custard bun – which is a popular part of dim sum and best known for the liquid salted egg yolk filling which is sweet and full of flavors. Many people complained about the food quality here, but I think they have improved since the first opening a few months ago. You shouldn’t go here expecting for the best dimsum (especially in Hong Kong), but if you are a Hello Kitty fan you MUST go! #toocutetoeat The Dapper collection by @danielwellingtonwatches launches today! It’s men’s watch but I love the deep blue hands. Use “dwGirleatsworld” for a further 20% discount at their website! Code has been extended to 30th October 👌🏼
🍡 #GirlEatWorld by @kimberleyvu, a Hanami dango overlooking Fuji-san in Japan 🗻🇯🇵 Dango is a japanese sweet rice cake that is eaten all year round. This three-colored kind is called the Hanami dango, which is normally eaten during the Sakura-viewing season in Spring, often served with green tea. And yes, this is where this 🍡 emoji comes from!! Thanks for this amazing shot @kimberleyvu! Une photo publiée par Food & Travel ❤️ (@girleatworld) le
#GirlEatWorld by @lena.soh – Koulouri in Athens, Greece 🇬🇷. Koulouri (or κουλούρι in greek alphabet) is a cheap sesame bread ring that locals would grab from street carts for breakfast every morning. It also looks similar to Turkish simit to me! Thanks @lena.soh for this awesome shot. Do yourself a favor and follow her amazing pun-filled european adventure over at ➡️ @lena.soh ⬅️
Landed in Penang!!! @singasongjess and I were so lucky to meet a penang local @melvinmah88, who took us to eat at a local place! This is Chendol – a traditional ice dessert that’s not just super popular here in Penang, but also famous pretty much all over south east asia including Indonesia (my home country) where it is believed the name “cendol” originated from. Cendol consists of shaved ice, brown sugar syrup, coconut milk, kidney beans and the green worm-like stuff that’s made of flour. We’re off to a really great start! Tomorrow we have planned our day around food, can’t wait!! 😍🍨 #GirlEatPenang Une photo publiée par Food & Travel ❤️ (@girleatworld) le
#GirlEatWorld by @jerricatan at the beautiful Marina Bay waterfront in Singapore. She is having the $1.20 ice cream sandwich you can get from the street vendors here. They originally come as a long block and hand-cut to about 1″ thickness, then served between two wafers or a piece of bread! A lot of people think its weird but I actually like the bread. I can’t resist one whenever i pass by an ice cream uncle 😍 you can also get them in unusual flavors like durian (yum) or corn!
🍦🍦🇬🇧 #GirlEatWorld by @travelandz – 99 Flake at London’s Tower Bridge, a must-have when in London! They are a vanilla softserve with cadbury chocolate flake. Great on its own, or take cues from @travelandz and double it up 😏 Une photo publiée par Food & Travel ❤️ (@girleatworld) le
Day 3 with 🔺@tanadewa_villas🔺: It’s been SUPER hot in bali so we spent the morning chilling in our villa’s private pool 🏊🏼 with a cold can of local beer Bintang 🌟🍻, followed by more balinese massage (yes, massage everyday!!) before heading out to the airport and back to Singapore. It’s been such an awesome weekend! Look out for my Bali recommendations blog post soon :) and follow me on facebook for more travel and food pictures (facebook.com/girleatworld) Thanks again @tanadewa_villas for hosting me and friends! #tanadewa #tanadewavillas
🎅🏼🎄🇵🇱 How much more festive can it be? #GirlEatWorld by @just.in.travel – a traditional mulled plum wine in a shoe-shaped mug at the most beautiful Christmas Market in Wrocław, Poland. Thanks Justyna for taking such an amazing picture for us to enjoy! 2015 has been another great year of traveling for me, and I hope it was a great one for you too. I will be posting my favorite #GirlEatWorld from this year as a count down to 2016. Stay tuned! 😋 Une photo publiée par Food & Travel ❤️ (@girleatworld) le
4th favorite #GirlEatWorld moment of 2015 – This is a Bo Lo Bao at The Peak in Hong Kong 🇭🇰. This year i visited Hong Kong four times = Three times for work and once for a trip with @skyscannersg. In total, I spent over a month and got to know the city really well, especially the Causeway Bay area. Thanks @singasongjess for accompanying me on one of the trips and @cultoflee for meeting up whenever possible! Why Bo Lo Bao? Because it’s so popular in Hong Kong that it became part of Hong Kong’s intangible cultural heritage. Bo lo bao means pineapple bun 🍍 but it does not contain any pineapple at all. It earned its name due to the sweet crust of the top of the bun which resembles the scaly exterior of pineapples. It’s normally had for breakfast, and sometimes served with a block of iced butter inside. The Peak is a short tram / cab ride away from Central Hong Kong. It’s a popular spot for a scenic view of Hong Kong island. On a good day you can see across the victoria harbor on to the Kowloon side as seen in this picture!
🇯🇴 Limonana aka Lemon Mint 🍋🍃 at the Dead Sea at the beautiful Kempinski Ishtar @kempinskiishtar. It was quite a surreal experience to be floating in the dead sea. As soon as you enter the water, you can feel instant weightlessness. Then you just lay back and it feels like you are laying down on a floatie! Definitely a bucket list ☑️ After dipping into the dead sea, you can also try the mud therapy which is supposed to be good for your skin. I found the earthy smell a bit too overbearing so I only had it on for about 3 minutes, but it did make my skin feel super soft! Limonana has been my drink of choice in Jordan. It’s a popular drink in the middle east, made of lemon juice and fresh mint leaves, served frozen as a slushie. The perfect drink to cool down on a relaxing hot afternoon by the pool. Right behind the Limonana is the Dead Sea and the country border between Jordan and Palestine. Aside of the weightless feeling, it is unreal to realize you are looking at different countries on each side of the sea! #VisitJordan #ShareYourJordan #ShotOniPhone6sPlus Follow me on snapchat and facebook for more real time update! ▶️girleatworld◀️ on both platforms.

✈️🇯🇴 I’ve landed in Amman, Jordan this morning! After a quick nap I went out in the afternoon to get a taste of Jordan, literally. This is an Arabic ice cream 🍦 from @gerardicecream in Rainbow street, one of the most popular ice cream joint in Amman. The Arabic Ice cream consists of crumbled pistachio and gum arabic made from acacia tree sap. The pistachio gave an amazing texture that really compliments the fragrance of gum arabic. It’s like a really aromatic vanilla ice cream! I also had what is probably the best falafel sandwich from Al Quds. I thought about saving half the sandwich for later, but after the first bite I knew such thing was not possible so I finished it! 😅 The perfectly crunchy texture of the grilled flatbread and deep fried falafels were met by the fresh vegetables and tahini sauce. For dinner, I had an amazing meze experience at Fakhr El-Din. Meze consists of small dishes to taste, sort of like tapas in Spain, and I basically tasted everything that was put in front of me, including a really creamy Hummus and a dish of chicken liver wih molasses (my personal fav). I am currently lying in bed from food coma. #VisitJordan #ShareYourJordan #ShotOniPhone6sPlus I will be exploring more of Amman tomorrow.

🐼 a Panda-bun filled with red bean in Kobe, Japan by @op.118! She got it from Kobe’s chinatown area, called Nankinmachi – named after Nanjing which used to be the capital of China. “Machi” means town in Japanese! Nankinmachi was developed by Chinese merchants after Kobe Port was opened to foreign trading in 1868 and became a vibrant area bustling with trades and restaurant by early 1920s. And! It’s time to announce my next trips – I am off to Lombok to hike Mount Rinjani ⛰🇲🇨 this weekend, then I will be traveling to Jordan 🇯🇴 with @visitjordan for 8 days next weekend. I am sooooo looking forward to it! 😍 #toocutetoeat Une photo publiée par Food & Travel ❤️ (@girleatworld) le
🇯🇵🐱🍩 The cuuuutest handmade cat donut from Floresta Nature Donuts @floresta_nature_doughnuts at Shin Kyogoku 新京極 Market in Kyoto. These are called Doubutsu Donut どうぶつドーナツ or “Animal Donut”. I have wanted one since I saw them on instagram awhile back! These animal donuts became a sensation about 4 years ago, created by Floresta in Nara. Due to the massive success of the animal donuts, they now have branches all over Kansai region (Osaka, Kyoto, Nara, etc)! There are many different animal designs, but this cat donut is one of their original designs. The donuts are all cake-based and the ears are made of almonds. So adorable! Special thanks to my friend @soulstruck for the tips ❤️! @op.118 and I practically ran to find these donuts when you told us there is one near Nishiki Market! #ShotOniPhone6s #ShotOniPhone6sPlus #toocutetoeat #floresta #どうぶつドーナツ #donutscookiesandcream #eeeeeats #buzzfeedfood
🇯🇵🍦🌸 A Sakura-flavored ice cream in front of Sakura trees at Arashiyama Park in Kyoto! I spy @op.118 👀 hanging about in the background. Visiting Japan during Hanami season is a must-do! Everytime the wind blew into this park, sakura petals would fall all around us like pink snow. The sakura trees in Japan have probably thinned out by now, but I will cherish this moment forever 🌸💖 #ShotOniPhone6sPlus #icecream #icecreamking #eeeeeats Une photo publiée par Food & Travel ❤️ (@girleatworld) le
⛩🇯🇵🍦 A modern take of the well-loved, fish-shaped Taiyaki from a food market at Fushimi Inari in Kyoto by @op.118. Taiyaki normally contains red bean paste or custard cream, but this parfait one has whipped cream, chocolate pocky stick, green tea paste and red bean paste as well as crunchy cereal inside! Follow @op.118 who is currently touring through Japan. — On a separate note, I have been refreshing my Japanese knowledge using @iknowjp app which teaches you daily japanese vocabularies on-the-go through fun quizzes and games.

Teh Kotak at Pianemo view point in Raja Ampat, West Papua 🇮🇩. I am Indonesian and grew up drinking this boxed teh melati / jasmine tea. The sweetness is perfectly tailored to indonesian taste buds! (though i remember the box being much smaller back then 😜) When you google Raja Ampat, this is the image you will get. Pianemo is a cluster of coral islands that appears colorful from above due to the varying depth of water. The lighter part you see is the shallow part with white sand bottom, giving it that vibrant turquoise color. To get up to the hill for this view is pretty easy since they have built wooden ladders and a balcony view point, but it can be a bit steep for those who aren’t fit. The weather gets very hot out there in the afternoon and you will be sweating a bucket by the time you get on top. It got so hot that some of us jumped straight into the water after!
Hai gaiz! I kicked off 2016 with a dream diving trip that were planned for over a year. I’ve been on a liveaboard on MV Black Manta for the past 6 days in Raja Ampat in West Papua, Indonesia where the diving is just phenomenal. We clocked in 19 dives and saw everything we hoped to see! Follow me at @ichabunni for diving stories. We are usually anchored far away from land so fishermen and villagers would come visit on a boat with goods. They brought us coconut for $1! ❤️🌊 Une photo publiée par Food & Travel ❤️ (@girleatworld) le
