Some restaurants have become too cool for school. They serve your appetizers, entrees and desserts on slabs of concrete, wooden planks, glass tiles, and even logs (oh, they do). Some restaurants don’t even own plates or bowls or any of the traditional serveware. And people everywhere have had enough!
If you’ve ever worked in the hospitality industry you’ll know just how much food goes to waste at the end of a dinner shift. Kilos upon kilos. So a group of non-wasters got together to create an app – PareUp – that allows users to buy leftover restaurant goodies. The mobile app ‘will store inventories […]
Think of the most expensive meal you’ve ever eaten. Now multiply that price by 5 or so. For many, it’s a price not worth paying, but for some (cough, the 1%, cough), it’s a price that makes it all the more exclusive and rewarding. Conde Nast Traveler recently published a list of the world’s most […]
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.
