An old Tokyo barber turned bar owner

The fella in the photographs was a barber until he was 50, but he didn’t like it, so he became a bar owner instead. A job he has done ever since. For the last 24 years to be exact. Cooking and serving behind the little counter below. Those are the simple facts, but how long he will continue to be open for business is far less certain. His age of course is a factor, but with Tokyo residents now being asked to refrain from socialising in the evening, and a lockdown surely inevitable, it’s not hard...

March linkfest

This month’s book recommendation is I Like to Watch (2019), by the Pulitzer Prize-winning television critic Emily Nussbaum. The book collects a decade’s worth of Nussbaum’s reviews and essays for the New Yorker and other publications, including one written especially for the book. Nussbaum is such a good writer that she made me care about shows that hadn’t appealed to me (I’ve watched exactly one episode each, for example, of “The Sopranos,” “Buffy the Vampire Slayer,” and “Lost”). And she made...

How Parsis shaped India’s taste for soft drinks

A bottle of Pallonji’s raspberry soda comes with this helpful disclaimer: “Contains no fruit.” Electric red in colour, and syrupy sweet to the taste, the raspberry soda is a beloved cultural icon of India’s fast-disappearing Parsi community – as well as the endangered Irani cafes in the western city of Mumbai. Article by Dinyar Patel | BBC It is pure, fizzy nostalgia. But peer more closely into one of Pallonji’s ancient glass bottles and you can discern a story of much greater significance: ho...

People Are Very Attached to This Waffle Recipe Featuring, Wait For It, Paper Clip-Carved Hot Dog Noodles

Hot dog waffles aren’t exactly a classic staple of modern cuisine, but hot diggity dog, this recipe — which involves the odd method of scooping out fun strands of raw hot dogs with a paper clip, a.k.a. Clippy, your old friendly Microsoft pal —has gone massively viral on Twitter. It’s originally from the minds of Chefs TV; Anthony Michael Kreis posted the video recently, and garnered more than 5 million views.

Malibu Delivers a Much-Needed Taste of Summer to Scotland

Malibu believes that summer is more than sunshine and tropical beaches. Summer is a feeling; it’s freedom, it’s social, it’s trying new things.

That’s why this February, Malibu is bringing a slice of summer to residents of the least summery places, as part of its Summer Feels Tour.Typically enduring 170 days of wet weather each year, Glasgow is the first stop on Malibu’s Summer Feels Tour which hopes to recreate...

Food delivered traditionally by bicycle in Tokyo

In a world of delivery motorbikes and Uber Eats bags, the sight of food being transported the traditional way is an increasingly rare sight. One only really seen in certain parts of the city. But just like the old adage about buses, after waiting ages to see one, two sometimes come along at once.

A ‘Japanese only’ restaurant due to the coronavirus outbreak

Recently, the owner of the Tokyo restaurant below opted for a ‘Japanese only’ policy due to the coronavirus outbreak. In his tweet announcing the decision, he was at pains to stress that it wasn’t in any way discriminatory. Instead, it was simply a way to try and protect his family, staff and the eatery’s customers. A controversial move it has to be said, but one that doesn’t seem to have affected business, as on Monday (a national holiday), there was a long line of people waiting to get in. Al...
