Slightly Peckish: Breakfast in Hong Kong

by Sakura Gooneratne

I’m not ordinarily a breakfast person, I’d rather get an extra half an hour of sleep instead. However, if I’m going to have breakfast, I want it to be special. And in Hong Kong, we were only looking at two options: congee and wonton noodle soup. The thing I love about Asia is that you […]

Casa de Kei in Kauai

by Kayoko Akabori

Let’s be real: when my brother Keisuke said he would join us for our First Annual Kauai Trip, I hoped (really hard) that he would cook for us. Ah hell, we all did. Have you seen Casa de Kei? His midnight creations are totally bananas — creative yet approachable; high art meets B-kyu (aka comfort food). […]

The Forest Feast: Pear Pancakes

by Erin Gleeson

Even though it’s starting to become spring, it’s still cold in some parts!  We were recently in NYC and since Jonathan’s family has a house in Vermont, we took a group of friends there for the weekend. We cooked big meals together, played snow football and spent evenings by the fire. (It’s kind of like […]

Skankynavia: The Royal Café (CPH)

by Anders Arhoj

I’m so over normality. I’m over generic cafes, mediocre restaurants and bleh bars with all their effortless interiors, lazy service, boring menu offerings and pointless existence besides making money (in these days: little). The next time I walk into a cream coloured cafe serving cafe lattes in a standard glass with a napkin around it, […]

Old School Eats: The Fountain Coffee Room (LA)

by Sarah Nevada

I drove up the well hidden path framed by carefully manicured greenery and pulled into valet (only to ask, “is there street parking close by?”), and a rush of old Hollywood imagery washed over me. Frames from The Way We Were and Shampoo fluttered about as I fell into a movie star k-hole. After some […]

The Breakfast of South India

by CJ Mattiola

About a year ago I took a new job which has had me traveling to Bangalore a few times a year. I loved Indian food before ever stepping foot into the country, but then again I never really experienced Indian breakfast other than a dosa or two. Bangalore, and South India in general, is famous […]

Slightly Peckish: Breakfast In Paris

by Sakura Gooneratne

It’s been universally acknowledged that August is the month of sloth. Is that a problem for me? Jamais! My parents are in town and apart from my mother who doesn’t seem to understand the word lazy, the rest of us are fans of the easy life and what’s easier than to hop onto the Eurostar […]

Culinography: Shakshouka

by Erin Gleeson

Shakshouka is a delicious and very common breakfast menu item in Israel.  It’s basically a pot of marinara type thick sauce that is baked in the oven with a couple eggs cracked in it. It comes straight out of the oven on a cutting board and is served with warm bread.

Slightly Peckish: Lazy South Indian Breakfast

by Sakura Gooneratne

August is the month of sloth so we rolled into Wembley, north London for a laaazy Sunday brunch at Sakonis. Surrounded by shops selling everything South Asian from sarees and cricket bats to sweet Pakistani mangoes, this cheap and cheerful eatery is the perfect place for a South Indian vegetarian breakfast. Food is served all […]
