Finding The Real Hawaii One Bite At A Time

Thursday, March 4, 2010

Quickly, name the first thing that comes to your mind when I say, “Hawaiian food.” I thought so, probably pineapples, roast pig luau — all those stereotypical Hawaiian things, right? I don’t blame you. I’m definitely not a resorter, and won’t be any time soon, but those touristy eats are the same things that pop […]

The Coffee Culture Boom: Is London Really The Next Coffee Town? (And The Case For Toronto)

Wednesday, March 3, 2010

This week the NY Times hailed London, England, as the next city for the coffee craze.

But, as most people know, this java renaissance is happening […]

Come On Everybody And Drop Your Diets, We’re Heading To Mexico City For The Weekend

Wednesday, January 27, 2010

If you are bored and don’t know what to do this weekend, go to Mexico City. I know it sounds crazy. Most of my friends cocked their heads to one side with eyebrows raised when I told them I had done just that one weekend, but it’s worth it. The food is delicious, the flight […]

Best Restaurants In New York?

Wednesday, January 27, 2010

This morning I saw somebody’s umbrella fly out of their hands and nearly take off a tourist’s head in the 45 m.p.h. winds that New York was experiencing all day. They were probably thinking, “This is what you get when you spring for cheap flights in the winter.” It’s not all bad for visitors to […]

Have you ever wondered what it would be like to experience Mexico outside the all-inclusive resorts, away from sprawling Mexico City? Francine Prose did. She checked out Puebla, a two-and-a-half-hour drive southeast of Mexico´s capital. Founded in 1531 by the Spanish, the city has a rich history deeply rooted in religion. Some even believe that the location of the city […]

Wednesday, November 11, 2009

You know there’s something going on in a city’s dining scene when the NYT’s gets wind of it. This week’s travel section highlighted the Chilean port city of Valparaíso where, with over 40 new restaurants in Cerro Concepción and Cerro Alegre alone, the city’s foodie scene is firmly in resurgent mode. “Unesco made Valparaíso’s historic […]

What Exactly Is Bánh Sèo Anyway?

Thursday, October 29, 2009

Bánh xèo means either “sizzling cake” or “sound crepe,” depending on what your Google search turns up, but either way, the name refers to this southern Vietnamese crepe made of rice flour, water, coconut milk, pork, shrimp, and bean sprouts that’s pan fried, then “rolled up in a leaf of lettuce and dipped in a […]

When Has Your Meal Had A Story Like This?

Wednesday, October 21, 2009

So much more than the “leeks, onions, garlic, and other greens” that swim amidst the odd presence of sliced hotdogs and Spam, one of Korea’s favorite dishes, Budae Jjigae, is a stew with a backstory not likely associated with most meals, as TheExpeditioner.com’s own Jon Wick finds out in this piece.
