A pop-up restaurant that is all about location, location, location

Inigo del Castillo Contributor

By Inigo del Castillo in New Food and Packaging on Friday 25 October 2013

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 […]

By Erin Emocling in Cool Websites on Tuesday 3 September 2013

If ever you should happen to visit Sapporo, this should be your first stop for food. Period. The […]

THE HELLO TOMORROW SERIES: Lights out, now go to sleep… we mean eat

Zac Contributor

By Zac in New Food and Packaging on Saturday 23 March 2013

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.

Pittsburgh restaurant takes US foreign policy to task

Francis Andrews Reader Find

By Francis Andrews in Cool Travel on Thursday 21 March 2013

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 […]

The Urban Grocer Contributor

By The Urban Grocer in Cool Travel on Thursday 21 March 2013

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 […]

Former chapel of psychiatric hospital made into restaurant

Low Lai Chow Contributor

By Low Lai Chow in Cool Travel on Tuesday 6 November 2012

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.
