The Last Heavenly Floating Market – Lad Mayom

‘Homemade coconut ice cream?’ said a Thai woman, giving me a friendly smile. ‘Hmmm, sounds nice. What’s this?’ I asked, pointing at some sauce. ‘That’s pumpkin in syrup. You can choose from all these delicious toppings. We have coconut milk mixed with red beans ‘loosen,’ jack fruit, corn, sugar palm, and peanuts. You can also mix it with potato or sticky rice or milk, or all together if you like.’ (Nong Khongkwan – on par with Italian ice cream) I usually don’t associate Thailand with yummy ice...

World Renown, Locally Loved

How many chain restaurants can draw lines everyday, from opening to closing, numbering well into the dozens on a “slow” day? What about an outpost that can claim a Michelin star? If you haven’t already heard of Din Tai Fung, there’s a good chance you’ve felt its impact on the overall culinary landscape whether you realize it or not. Born in Taiwan originally as a cooking oil purveyor, Din Tai Fung transitioned into the restaurant business in 1972 and has taken the world by storm ever since. Base...

Truffle Hunting in Tuscany: in the woods, with a dog, digging for tartufo

The truffle hunter, much like his cousin the porcini hunter, is a lone beast. Out at the crack of dawn with his faithful dog, armed with a spade and dressed in camouflage, he moves under cover of darkness so that nobody finds out where he searches for the precious subterranean fungus. He spreads the aromatic equivalents of landmines to throw rival beasts off track, doing everything to protect his livelihood, for bringing in a precious edible of sufficient size can feed his family for a week. Luc...

Top 10 craft beer pubs in Sheffield

One of Britain’s great beer cities is celebrating the fifth annual Sheffield Beer Week – but in these pubs there’s an exhaustive range of craft brews on tap year roundThis studenty pub has the conflicting, mismatched interior decor of a venue that has seen many incarnations down the years. But packed these days, even in midweek, the Beer Engine has clearly found its groove, thanks to its emphasis on good beer and its surprisingly accomplished food. The 17 taps cover all beer bases from the house...

"Newness or difference from the norm is a very urban, almost postmodern, quest. It is recent. It is class-based."

Said NYT food-studies scholar Krishnendu Ray, quoted in "The People Who Eat the Same Meal Every Day" by Joe Pinsker in The Atlantic. Pinsker goes on:So, when accounting for the totality of human experience, it is the variety-seekers—not the same-lunchers—who are the unusual ones....The daily rituals of office life are characterized by their monotony and roteness, and bringing a different lunch each day is a sunny, inspired attempt to combat all the repetition. I do genuinely appreciate the optim...

Liliha Bakery opens third location at Ala Moana Center

I was sad to see the iconic Pineapple Room close, and I couldn’t think of another iconic local eatery that would fit in the large space atop Macy’s. But when Liliha Bakery announced they would be moving in, I realized it was a perfect fit. As charming as the original Kalihi location is, it can barely hold a few dozen people. And while the second Nimitz location is larger, it suffers from limited parking. Setting up shop in Ala Moana Center was a...

Raise a Stink

With a name like “stinky tofu,” the deck is already stacked against this polarizing snack. Granted, the title is entirely well-earned, accurate if somewhat blunt, and not merely a result of cultural misunderstanding. The aroma will hit you a block away, wafting through night markets like a pungent homing beacon for those in the know. Tenaciously clinging to hair and clothing, the distinctive perfume follows you home, infused simply through proximity, whether or not you chose to partake. To the u...

What and Where to Eat in Rome

Oh my god. Where do I begin? With so many choices, how do you narrow down where to eat in Rome? For my latest visit to Rome, I did more food and restaurant research than I’d done on previous trips. There is so much good, fresh food and so many choices, that it’s almost too much to bear! At some point, I knew we couldn’t do it all (or even get to all the places on my list). You have to pick a few must-eats (find out below about local specialties and what to eat in Rome), make reservations if you...

In the Kitchen with Filippo Saporito at Cordon Bleu Firenze

“You are what you eat,” says Filippo Saporito, which is why when you cook, you must pay utmost attention. Today I sat in at a lesson that is part of the eight-week intensive professional chef course at the Cordon Bleu cooking school in Florence. Ten students (5 international, 5 Italian) are perfecting their skills here, and every few days they have a guest chef from around Tuscany. This is far from your usual pasta-making class for tourists. The students have straight backs, pressed jackets, ski...

McDonald’s Malaysia Salted Egg Yolk Sauce Review
