World Renowned, 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...

18 Free and Cheap Things to Do in Singapore

Updated: 2/27/2019 | February 27, 2019 Singapore is an expensive place to visit. There’s no way around it. The small city state is priced relative to the United States, which is a lot more expensive than its neighbors! On a small stop-over trip, this isn’t a problem. But on a big trip through the region, a trip into Singapore can elicit sticker shock, and it can turn people away if they’re trying to do the area on the cheap. If you still want to visit this country, though, there are still man...

What Does Globalization Really Destroy?

Posted: 2/25/2019 | February 25th, 2019 While walking down the streets of Medellín, I came across a Dunkin’ Donuts, a donut chain from my hometown of Boston. (It’s the best. Locals are quite attached to Dunkin. Don’t mess with a Massachusetts resident and Dunkin.) As I looked at the store, a pit formed in my stomach and I got quiet and melancholy. For days, I had been coming across Starbucks, McDonald’s, KFC, Papa John’s, and now, Dunkin’ Donuts! Medellín had been overrun by the chains. Anot...

Paris: 10 tips to save on dining

Dining out in Paris can be a difficult task on a budget, especially for first-time visitors. There are so many restaurants and recommendations to take in that just deciding where to go — or even which neighborhood to head to! — can be a laborious process unto itself. I’m not going to make individual restaurant recommendations right now (the list is long, highly personal and ever-changing!), but there are a few general rules for most eating establishments that will help you keep the bill in check...

Woman dies after Michelin-star meal

A 46-year-old woman who dined with her husband and son at the one-Michelin-star RiFF restaurant in Valencia, Spain, on Saturday evening died on Sunday morning. Her husband and son were sick with what looks like food poisoning (diarrhea and vomiting). Officials later tracked down 75 people who had eaten at the restaurant between February 13 and 16 and discovered that 29 of them had suffered food poisoning. Food safety officers inspected RiFF on Monday but couldn’t find any apparent cause for ...

Best places for solo female travel

As much as we love travel, there’s no denying it can be tough. That goes double for solo travelers. And double that for solo female travelers. Going it alone can make a trip that much more enriching and empowering, encourage you to take risks and make new friends along the way, but choosing the right first adventure is crucial to ensure solo travel doesn’t leave a bitter taste in your mouth. For women, no matter how fearless, that probably means picking someplace safer than most, at least mod...

Best places to travel in April

There’s an old cliché about April showers bringing May flowers, like that’s some kind of optimistic mantra to get you through four weeks of saying, “The weather really should be getting better by now.” But how about instead of finding clever rhymes to survive the unexpected doldrums of April you just get the heck outta town? April is the month where cherry blossoms bloom from DC to Japan, baseball gets back in season, and New Orleans isn’t yet soul-crushingly humid. And it’s Laotian New Year!...

World's most sustainable restaurants

Farm-to-table dining is no longer a niche concept. Restaurants around the world are sourcing local produce, minimizing waste, and reducing energy use. Part of the drive to sustainability is because of flavor — fresh, local food simply tastes better than the same food out of a package — and part of the recent resurgence of sustainable practices in restaurants is because it’s what the people want. While there are locations where local and sustainable food has always been present, this new crop ...

My 6 Favorite Experiences Sailing With Crystal Cruises in Mexico

Sitting here at my desk on a very chilly January morning, it’s hard to believe that just a few weeks ago I was sailing along the golden coast of the Mexican Riviera with luxury cruise line, Crystal Cruises.

There were many special moments, both onboard and ashore, that created a memorable travel experience, but today I thought I’d share th...

Dining at all-inclusive resorts

When I was 14 , the food at Club Med was the greatest thing I’d ever seen. Instead of the plates of carefully placed organic spinach salad and tabbouleh I was used to at home, I found endless bowls of spaghetti tossed in beef-filled tomato sauce. I had whole pizzas I could just take. Trays of cookies. A guy who’d cut me all the prime rib I wanted. Seconds? Try ninths. My sister and I would compete to see who could eat more, piling each plate a little higher than the last. If I hadn’t been 14, ...

Best winter day trips near NYC

Winter in New York City can be brutal; temperatures can drop into the negatives, and you’re likely to see people resembling the Michelin man with all the layers they’ve packed on. While there are plenty of activities to do within the five boroughs during this time of year, such as outdoor sports or cozying up somewhere to avoid the cold, sometimes you just need to get away and maybe even see some real, clean snow.
