Writing about XiaoLongBao this week has left me craving them but I am too lazy to attempt them at home (again) so I'll guess I'll wait until January when I'm close to a Din Tai Fung location again! Have you tried making them at home with any success?
I love that Din Tai Fung continues to expand into new US markets and when they opened Din Tai Fung Del Amo in Torrance, California, I was extra excited since it's only 10 minutes from my parents house. I just wish they would come to Europe now!
If you're headed to Ambergris Caye, Belize, be sure to check out the new Crocs Sunset Sports Bar that opened last week. Great location and the sunset views are superb.
I knew some of the differences between types of chopsticks, but not necessarily all the reasons why they developed that way. I would love to find time to sit and read his book as I have always been fascinated with their history and use in Asian cuisine and culture.
It's Thirsty Thursday! Cheers from Palapa Bar in #Belize!

This trend in the food industry is quite disturbing. I remember hearing about this 20,000 calorie burger, but now they say two people have died attempting to eat it. It feels like dining out has really changed -- now it's just for the shock factor, whether a dish is Instagram worthy / will a big viral food site will pick it up, or what new hipster trend can we create. As the video notes, this burger is the daily allowance of calories for like 10 men -- why is this popular when you know most of the burger is going to waste, or the flip side is you die after eating it???
How amazing does this look?!?! WOW!
I could watch this bread rise all day 😍 and the location? Completely unexpected!
These look so amazing! And horrible timing when I'm hungry and haven't eaten breakfast! LOL
Wow! Looks like we need to take a trip to the Baja side of Mexico! 😳😍

So what is Europe's first Avocado Restaurant all about? We had the opportunity to visit The Avocado Show in Amsterdam, The Netherlands a few weeks ago, after our first attempt was unsuccessful. Cool experience! If you plan to go, be sure to get there early, and do note: they ONLY take credit cards, no cash!
YES! We love the pickles from the Pickle Guys in NYC - definitely need to plan a trip when this opens!
Why did fun stuff like this not exist when I was a kid?? So jealous!
