Man Versus Machine Coffee Roasters @ Munich

Good vibes at this German caffeine bar: Grab a cinnamon-tinged franzbrotchen pastry & fine light-roast filter coffee at Man Versus Machine before moseying over to Munich's main park to view man versus cold-water waves at Eisbach surfing river.

Bibisik @ SkyPark, One City USJ

Bibisik's forte is its wide selection of Malaysian classics served in a vibrant setting - the curry laksa (RM13.90) & nasi ayam stim (RM11.90) seem like sensibly priced meals, with other nation-spanning temptations like murtabak, mee mamak, mee rebus, acar, rojak, cucur jagung, pasembur, nasi kerabu ayam percik, udang petai, kailan ikan masin, telur cincalok, cendol, pisang goreng, pulut hitam manis to keep 'em coming. The food is competently prepared mall fare, though the use of a fresher spice mix might make the laksa taste livelier. Note that the kitchen can sometimes get swamped by a lunch crowd.

The Raw Kitchen, Scratch Bakers & Best Ugly Bagels @ Auckland

A strawberry chia pudding & 'black lemonade' (made with cold-pressed lemon juice, activated charcoal & naturally alkaline water), while pausing to ponder in the peaceful courtyard of The Raw Kitchen, nestled in a discreet back-lane of Auckland.

Stopping for a snack with Scratch Bakers' deservedly revered pork belly pie, as close to perfect as a fresh, flaky pie might be.

Lingering over Best Ugly Bagels' beautifully crisp bagels, smeared with a house-made chocolate hazelnut spread (other options include Zany Zeus organic cream cheese, Te Horo raspberry jam or Marsh's Central Otago clover honey, NZ$5 each).
