Pop-up restaurants are small, short-term, temporary restaurants that often ‘pop-up’ one day and disappear anywhere from the day after or weeks later. Some pop-up restaurants are famous for their food, their concept, or their location. One pop-up restaurant is quickly becoming famous for the prime location they acquired. The Cube by Park Associati is a […]
Every day, the world gets smaller (well, not literally) as the world wide web gets more immense and powerful. It’s so ridiculous sometimes that even the most mundane question, “Where the f*ck should I go to eat?”, needs to be consulted on the Internet. This cranky yet functional website will answer your dilemma no matter where on Earth you are located.
Suage is one of my favorite food spots in the Susukino entertainment area of Sapporo. The nice little dining area is neatly tucked away opposite the big Norebesa building with the huge Ferris wheel on the roof. If ever you should happen to visit Sapporo, this should be your first stop for food. Period. The […]
Launched in July 2011, Aya Japanese Cuisine is the finest place in São Paulo for authentic Japanese sushi. It’s classy, contemporary, clean and intimate. The Chef, Juraci Pereira, aka Jura, and his investor, Beto Ganme, are the people behind this amazing restaurant, which was designed by the talented architect Carolina Rocco
São Paulo restaurant Cão Véio has a theme of dog. That’s right, dog. Indeed, the name is inspired by the loyalty between dogs and their owners that always grows over time. The items on the menu are named after different dog breeds, and every week at lunch time, they create four different dishes and one […]
The city of London is a pretty exciting place visually, so it seems almost counterproductive to dine in the dark. But that’s exactly what you’ll do at Dans le Noir? London, where you can experience the world in pitch black while blind waiters serve you your organic meal. It’s supposed to help sharpen your other senses in the meantime, so we can’t think of a better place to start training for super-sensory powers than dining in the dark. Unfortunately, the restrooms are fully lit for safety reasons, so you can’t practise there.
If you’re looking to get high on alcohol and altitudes alike, the 122th-storey high restaurant-bar At.mosphere in Burj Khalifa, Dubai is your best bet. Naturally, they also serve high tea (but of course).
Finally, a menu that helps us make up our minds about what to eat. Before you even make an order at pan-Asian fusion restaurant inamo St James in London, you can poke around at its interactive menu to beam prospective eats onto your plate.
This Pittsburgh-based takeout, Conflict Kitchen, switches cuisines every six months. For a while, it may be serving Cuban food; later it’ll be Afghan. Then Iranian. Why? Because all the countries it themes its food on have been on the receiving end of some sort of US punishment, whether armed invasion or sanctions. It’s a brilliant […]
Step into most Mexican taquerías and sophisticated is not the first word that comes to mind. Delicious? More often than not. But taquerías are indoor/ outdoor spaces where the smell of pork roasting on a spit and plastic cups of hotter-than-thou salsas count as ambience. Taquería Canalla in San Pedro, just outside Monterrey, is looking […]
Wow, imagine flying off for a short decadent getaway away without actually leaving the country. That’s the premise of Dine Mile High, which — lucky for all Londoners — touches down in mid-March to take away all the logistical pains of making it to the airport on time with your passport and boarding pass.
Grotta Palazzese is an incredible Italian restaurant situated inside of a cave overlooking the Adriatic Sea. This beautiful and secluded location is the perfect spot for a luxurious and romantic restaurant getaway. The only question is, how do you actually get there?
If swine makes you swoon and carnivore is your middle name, this nose-to-tail, gastro-pub is calling. At The Breslin, the interior is dark, the ceilings high, and the tables covered with butcher paper. Start your meal with the Scotch Egg – a whole egg wrapped in sausage, breaded, and fried.
Grab a dinner and get a free vasectomy at the same place? In Bangkok, you can do just that. Dedicated to birth control, Cabbages and Condoms is founded by Thailand’s former Minster of Health Mechai Viravaidya, who also makes sure that post-meal condoms are handed out to restaurant patrons. Wow.
A 14th century chapel of a psychiatric hospital, converted into a modern-day restaurant. That’s Thuys at the Het Dolhuys, a museum about, well, psychiatry. I am in love with its huge overhead windows and the box-like cloud chandelier crafted out of felt-covered metal boxes. The venue was redesigned by Dutch Studio Overtreders W, and the custom-designed furniture, produced by clients of a psychiatric institution. Nice to see this all come together beautifully.
