A Foodie’s Guide Where To Eat And Drink In Melbourne

Thursday, March 6, 2014

It’s no secret Melburnians (yes, I had to Google that), take a certain pride in Melbourne’s cultural offerings. Though I haven’t been yet, I’ve heard many an Australian dismissively refer to Sydney as the Miami of the country, and Melbourne as their New York (or, maybe their Brooklyn). Add on top of this the fact […]

The Australian Coffee Invasion Has Begun In New York

Monday, November 18, 2013

Apparently, if an Australian gives your city the thumbs up for being up on the coffee culture, you have succeeded. You see, you may not have known it, but the Australians are actually java connoisseurs, something I learned while reading this recent article in the Sydney Morning Herald, which shows caffeine fanatics where to look in New […]

Here’s What You Can Expect During A Food Tour Of Veracruz

Tuesday, October 29, 2013

The air outside is thick, but the smoke in Santana’s bar is thicker. Even if I were a non-smoker it would be worth it just to sit in the bar’s tiny, air-conditioned seating area and watch the old men slowly drink themselves into an affectionate stupor at three in the afternoon.

Sunday, October 6, 2013

“You can eat as much as you want, because it’s already half digested,” said the man sitting to my right, smiling through his thick brown mustache and watching expectantly as I took another swig of Viking beer. I forced myself to smile back at him as I speared a gelatinous piece of yellowish whale fat […]

The Spice Of Balinese Life: Notes From A Cooking Class In Ubud, Bali

Sunday, September 29, 2013

I am seated upon a bamboo mat on the ground, notebook in hand and appetite in tow. We have just returned to our lovely host home after an early-morning market excursion to purchase the necessities for our cooking lesson. Bundles of fresh tuna, ever-so-hideous jackfruit and ruby red tomatoes are just a few of the […]

Having Bourdain Withdrawal? Here’s A Foodie Fix For You

Tuesday, August 20, 2013

Having a little food porn withdrawal now that Bourdain’s packed up and headed over to CNN to start focusing a bit more on news and culture rather than local eats? Me too, but I’m attempting to address my fix by catching up with the girls over at The Innocents Abroad, the online travel and food […]

Top 10 Tapas Bars In Madrid

Sunday, June 30, 2013

What goes into making a list like the top ten tapas bars in Madrid? Like any big city, it’s difficult to make a top ten for anything, let alone tapas. The below, with a couple of exceptions, reflects my personal bias for down-to-earth, affordable tapas (kind of the whole point, for me) served in venerable […]

Watch As Omar From “The Wire” Runs Into Rival Gang Member With Bourdain [Video]

Friday, October 19, 2012

In the recently aired series finale of No Reservations, Tony, while exploring Brooklyn, had the awesomely crazy coincidence of eating a Caribbean meal with Brooklyn native Michael K. Williams (or Omar as he’s better known from The Wire) in Crown Heights when, who should show up, but Jamie Hector, the actor who played Marlo Stanfield, […]
