Barcelona Food: Worth Waiting Up Late To Eat

Friday, March 18, 2011

Is it me or do you notice how there seems to be an onslaught of articles published about a destination you’re traveling to just before you go? I understand, this is completely unscientific, irrational, and probably a tad ego-centric to think this, but I swear, there are some sort of travel writing gurus in the […]

Why Can’t More Cities Be More Like New Orleans?

Tuesday, March 8, 2011

After a bumpy ride through water damaged roads and partially boarded up houses, our taxi deposited us in a crowded and lively Jackson Square, the heart of New Orleans’ French Quarter. Jazz, the heartbeat of this area, poured out of storefront speakers, screamed from portable CD players, and blended mercilessly with live combos on every […]

What To Eat In Bangkok

Friday, February 11, 2011

Okay, I’m just putting this out there: Maybe Thailand (and Bangkok) is such a backpacker mecca because of the food? I mean, where else in the world do you find dishes so catered to both the eat-cheap and eat-on-the-go crowd? From banana roti (a perfect late-night snack to enjoy with your new buds from Germany) […]

Would You Travel Around The World For Food?

Thursday, January 20, 2011

Would you fly halfway around the world just for a meal? I suppose if you would, no ordinary experience would do. No, this meal would have to be overwhelming, exploding with flavor and seductive in every bite; to put it simply: it would have to be orgasmic. I often speak with travelers who admit to […]

An Ode To Poutine (What Is Poutine Anyway?)

Thursday, January 6, 2011

As any traveler to Québec knows, there’s one delicacy that stands out from the rest when describing the culinary scene in the French-speaking part of Canada: poutine. Okay, that’s kind of like describing pizza in New York as a delicacy, but the two do share in the common trait of representing, perhaps more than any […]

Have You Eaten Yet?

Tuesday, November 16, 2010

Any society where people greet one another by asking “Have you eaten yet?” is my kind of place. It’s a simple question that says quite a bit about a culture and its savory way of life. Food is just one of those magical things that bind people in the plainest and most complex of ways—an […]

Contemplation In A Cup Of Coffee

Tuesday, November 9, 2010

It wakes you up. It begins your day. After the third or fourth one, the day may come crashing down. Coffee breaks are a part of our societal makeup, the moments we relish in between sitting at a desk or in between the hustle. Sometimes we use them as social highlights and sometimes we use […]

Rome By The Glass

Monday, October 25, 2010

By Jude Polotan Poor Giordano Bruno. Ten years before Galileo would take the same stance, this former Dominican friar had the temerity to assert that the sun and not the Earth was the center of the universe, earning him a spot front and center in Rome’s Campo di’ Fiore, where he was burned at the […]

Top 5 Places To Eat In St. Clair West, Toronto

Monday, October 18, 2010

By Natalie Taylor Toronto is synonymous for food-centric neighborhoods such as Greektown, Chinatown, and lately, Ossington Avenue. But St. Clair West neighborhoods, Wychwood Heights and Hillcrest Village, spanning from Bathurst to Winona Drive, are undergoing a foodie renaissance. The St. Clair strip (near Dufferin Avenue) was predominantly known as Toronto’s other Little Italy, Corso Italia, […]
