Low Lai Chow Contributor

By Low Lai Chow in New Food and Packaging, Tech on Thursday 29 January 2015

Bad Thai food isn’t just disappointing, it’s an insult to Thai cuisine. Seems fitting, then, that Thailand’s government have set up a committee to deal with the waves of unauthentic Thai restaurants all over the world that fail to deliver the yum in their tom yum. One of the committee’s pet projects, is a $100,000 […]

It finally happened! Aussies put vegemite inside their pizza crust, and the rest of the world are gagging!

By Nicole Hughes in New Food and Packaging on Friday 23 January 2015

Pizza Hut went where not many companies would go. They advertised how much their customers hate their products. Well, one of them anyway. And it only makes us want to try it more! Just in time for Australia Day, Pizza Hut is launching a new pizza with a Vegemite-filled crust. Yep, that Vegemite, the typically Australian yeast paste, an acquired taste and one that (most) foreigners are definitely not used to (cue gag reflexes)

Koreans taste American snacks for the first time and their reactions are priceless

Rachel Oakley Contributor

By Rachel Oakley in New Food and Packaging on Friday 23 January 2015

The U.S. is known for its aisles and aisles of snacks in grocery stores and convenience shops, but the rest of the world isn’t always in-the-know on American snacks, so it seemed like a fun experiment to gather a few Korean girls, sit them down, and have them taste some of America’s favourite snacks.

Rachel Oakley Contributor

By Rachel Oakley in New Food and Packaging on Monday 19 January 2015

They say there are two kinds of people in the word: those that add potato chips to their sandwiches and those that don’t. I haven’t added crisps to a sandwich since I was in primary school but I still know how heavenly those first few bites are. And it looks like a lot of other people do too because an Irish pop-up cafe just opened serving up only chip sandwiches.

Rachel Oakley Contributor

By Rachel Oakley in New Food and Packaging on Saturday 17 January 2015

Mao Zedong may have been responsible for forced labour and executions in China, as well as millions of deaths through starvation, but when you’re looking for a restaurant theme none of that really matters, right?

Rachel Oakley Contributor

By Rachel Oakley in New Food and Packaging on Friday 16 January 2015

Ah, Paris. The city where people fall in love is also the city where they make some of the world’s best coffee.

These sushi transformers are ready for a food battle

Low Lai Chow Contributor

By Low Lai Chow in New Food and Packaging on Thursday 15 January 2015

Love sushi? Love Transformers? Then you’d like these. Two rival sushi tribes, the nigiri and makare, inhabit the planet of Sushilias — which all sounds quite banal until you consider the fact that this pretty much means sushi gets into combat mode as they transform into sushiroids. Got to love the Japanese for giving the […]

2015 is the year of the sheep (or goat, the term is ambiguous) in the Chinese zodiac calendar, and there’s no better way to celebrate the new year than by eating.
