The website Wisegeek give us the lowdown on what different food items look like when proportioned into 200 calorie quantities. After proportioning foods like smoked turkey, soda, candy, fruits, and veggies, they took photos to give us a better idea of what meals we should/shouldn’t partake if we’re on a healthy diet. ‘According to the U.S. […]
You know what really bites? Eating fried chicken and getting all that grease over your fingers and not having a napkin in sight. Or biting into a donut and forgetting to protect your fingers from the stickiness of that delicious icing. It’s the little things in life that can ruin our days. But our days are about to get a whole lot more tasty and OCD-free, thanks to these finger condoms.
Have you ever been so hungry you thought to yourself: ‘I could eat an entire planet!’ Yeah, I sometimes get that too. The Orbi Yokohama science museum in Japan is currently serving a burger that you could say is pretty close to home: the Earth burger. The not-so-appetizing burger closely resembles our planet with its blue and green bun. It’s the product of a collaboration between BBC and Sega, and is priced at 470 yen (around $4.50)
All right now, first of all: coffee-flavored wine, really? Secondly: what, you drink it out of a can? Doubly blasphemous. Florida company Friends Fun Wine recently launched world’s first coffee wines in the form of Cabernet Coffee Espresso and Chardonnay Coffee Cappuccino, which, at 6% ABV, shouldn’t be too shocking to your system. Cabernet Coffee […]
Australia-based photographerTQ Lee, who, in wanting to put a contemporary twist on the food art trend still-life from the 80s, started the Inedible series using food handcrafted made from unconventional ingredients, definitely has something quite interesting going on these photos. What’s real, and what’s not? Maybe nothing is really edible at all!
When viewing Turkey-based artist Hasan Kale’s paintings, you might have to bring a magnifying glass, or else risk not seeing the artworks at all! Previously, the artist painted Istanbul’s landscapes on tiny canvases such as pumpkin seeds, butterfly wings, peanut husks, and grains of rice. Now he’s turned his sights – or his magnifying glass – towards M&Ms, banana chips, chocolate bars, quail eggs, and pretzel sticks.
Wow, this is just dizzyingly fun. Architect Minas Kosmidis, who is behind the circus-in-town look of Biribildu Souvlaki (‘souvlaki’ is a sort of kebab-like Greek fast food) restaurant in the Alimos municipality of Athens, makes us want to run away to the circus immediately. The interiors come complete with numerous circus lights, cut-outs of carousel […]
Wow, what is this? When a couple went out for brunch with their young daughter at a local restaurant in northeast Calgary, they were astonished to see a ‘Well Behaved Kids’ discount of $5 on their final bill. Apparently it has been a restaurant practice for a year or so. With ill-mannered children becoming an increasingly common sight (and sound) in restaurants, this seems rather fitting.
We kid not: to celebrate the 50th anniversary of Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, the Roald Dahl Museum and Story Centre is now looking for a gastronomic writer to take up a 16-week residency starting in September 2014.
Billed as the world’s most expensive restaurant, Ibiza’s Sublimotion is described as a never-before novel gastro-sensory adventure to be experienced – at a mere fee of US$2000 to be exact. In return, you are treated to an elaborate 20-course meal created by Michelin-starred chef Paco Roncero, which should hopefully blow your mind as it drains your pockets.
A sausage split, a burger topped with gummy bears and a donut, salad mixed with shrimp and cake. Disgusting, but we eat them all the time. Picture this: you eat a salad, then a little later you eat a shrimp, then finish dinner with a cake for dessert. While you may not partake of this […]
There’s one great line in Oliver that almost every knows: ‘Please sir, I want some more‘. He’s referring to the colorless slop he and his penniless pals had to eat up almost every day. Have you ever wondered what that slop must’ve looked like? What about the ‘surpassingly excellent’ chowder of Moby-Dick, or the opulent […]
Now this, this deserves to be called food porn! In the wake of the tragic 2011 tsunami that hit Japan, ad agency I&S BBDO and seaweed shop owner Umino Hiroyuki designed a series of laser-cut seaweed to help boost the weak sales of local nori manufacturers. ‘Japanese people are eating less seaweed than before and […]
While rabbit pizza is itself enough to create a stir, New Zealand-based pizza restaurant ‘Hell Pizza’ went the extra mile and made this hare-raising billboard made from hundreds of rabbits. The billboard was put up to promote the restaurant’s Easter-themed dish, the Rabbit Pizza. It reads: ‘Rabbit Pizza. Made from real rabbit. Like this billboard’. […]

Alongside my eternal quest for more sushi, I think I’ve found a way to satiate my craving for the time being. Or perhaps initiate it. Just like a take away menu, you choose your sushis, your makis, and your rolls, and they all come to your door in a bento box. Can we consider these […]
