Eating Cuban Socialism and Other Delicacies

I waited patiently for the rolling cumulonimbus clouds to run out of tears before I frog leaped across the street. Dodging pools of rain captured in cement bowls and 1950’s General Motors automobile shells run on Toyota engines, I made it across the avenue. My friend Michael pointed at a small...

A Disnified journey to Machu Picchu

That headline might seem like a spoiler but hear me out on this one. It’s not as deductive as it reads. It was 4:45am and I had barely digested the Alpaca carpaccio I gobbled down for lunch the day before in Peru’s Sacred Valley. My eyes cracked open to reveal only a slight view of...

Gourmet Gamble

I like nature. I like the woods. I like the effort it takes to get in but I always try and bring some of the creature comforts with me. Specifically when it comes to food. On this years first trip, my buddy Joe and I, travelled to one of our tried and true regions in the Adirondacks but decided to...

Talk ain’t cheap but hotels could be

Traveling is a huge part of this blog. In order to find new food experiences we need to be in new places and meet new people. Par for the course includes eating some “crazy” things, discovering some off-beat places and letting your gut lead you through a new land. I can’t tell you...

You Macaroon!

Macaroons are not Italian but maccarone is. Like many things French, macaroons inspiration came from the Italians. This post isn’t sparking a debate about the inception of modern cuisine although read “Food In History“, then let’s talk. My intro was simply a snarky preface to...

I Made It To Africa

Forking Tasty – Bagatelle – Tunisia, Africa from Anthony Anello on Vimeo. After all the places I have visited I never once set foot in Africa. Well, that changed last week when we went to Tunisia. A couple buddies and I rented a cab for the day to have us go check out the sites but that...

Best Deal In Town

I recently have taken another contract and I am currently sailing in New England going from Boston to Montreal. Not the most exciting route when it comes to food but I am sure I will encounter a few surprises. My first surprise and my last port in the U.S. before heading into Nova Scotia was in Bar...

IN-N-OUT of a Defcon Situation

On a recent trip to California, me and that wonderful Canadian found ourselves in a defcon situation. (Defcon scale+amount of hunger=how processed your food is). After a day of wine and beer tasting in Paso Robles, we made a quick detour to wack down these beautiful In-N-Out burgers. The glory of...

$1.65 Airport Starbucks

There has to be some sort of subsidizing here right? The exact same cup of coffee costs me $1.85 in Brooklyn. If we were comparing Seattle to New York I’d be fine with this. But we are not. We are comparing the locked down, price gouging internal airport food service world with a regular...

Italian Food In China…Never Again!

In Sanya China our goal was to hit the beach for a little while. We got in a cab and the cabby was supposed to take us to a close beach. The cabby kept driving and driving and driving. We must have passed about 4 beaches and we still were not where he was thinking of taking us. Finally we had him...

Vietnam Home Cookin

My favorite meal I have had so far in South East Asia is from a place called Dac San Hoi An, in Hoi An Vietnam. Hoi An is small little shopping town with a lot of places to eat. Very authentic restaurants all over and great deals for shopping. We hired a taxi for the day and set off to Hoi An for a...

M.I.A.J.

I have been computer-less for the last 2 weeks. I have been all over Southern India with a backpack, a camera and a big appetite. Tonight, I returned to Mumbai for a 12 hour stop over before heading back to NYC via London. There is a ton to report on but it is going to take a few days for me to sort...

Eurodammed

The last 10 days I have been on this ship with Anthony. I learned all about life on the Eurodam and what he means by “waking up in a new country everyday”. Although the ship has it’s share of delicious food and wonderful drinks, I am going to keep this post short leaving the reviews to...

Market – Helsinki Finland

Helsinki Finland is a nice little city. I will be back there a few more times before my contract is over and I will definitely be back to hit up the market. I love markets like this. Everything is fresh. There were 2 small boats docked next to the market with fish caught that morning. Talk about...
