While Thai curry has been a stable to many of people abroad, most of the time we are stuck with either the choices of Red or Green curry. While undoubtedly, those are the two most popular type of curries, there are so many more regional specialties that are just as good or better.
If you haven't heard, Brown Sugar flavored milk tea is all the rave. The dark molasses flavor captivated the bubble tea enthusiasts and you will find every bubble tea house featuring this sweet tooth drink. Well, we've also been really crazy over Oatly because of its rich mouthfeel and delicious flavor but reduced the calories when compared against whole milk. And so, we thought why not create our favorite milk tea with oat-milk? Plus, making it at home means you can control the sugar level and we definitely like our drinks to be mildly sweetened. So skip the commute to Chinatown or wherever the tea house maybe and try your hands on this easy to follow 10 minutes simple recipe.
Note: We have not include the tapioca bubbles, but you may add them at your leisure. Also, we're trying to make this easy to prep so we suggest using the microwave to speed up the process.
Straight out of a fairy tale set, Rothenburg ob der Tauber is one of the most memorable places that we've visited in Germany. The beauty of the well preserved medieval buildings, painted vibrant shades with contrasting colors like the famous painted ladies in San Francisco, is a sight to behold. The entire village, with its cobble stone streets and its old fashioned wrought iron works hanging from the storefronts, is frozen in time. Nevertheless, the picturesque village can offer more than just the admiration of beautiful buildings. Tourism has revitalized the sleeping town into a sprawling hub of accommodations and eateries. In this post, we will introduce you to our recommended hotel and restaurants that we've enjoyed during our visit to this quaint village.
