15 Street Foods You Definitely Have To Try When Traveling The World

July 2, 2014 | No Comments » | Topics: Culture, Food |

Vada Pav, India

vada pav starts with balls of spiced mashed potato dipped in a chickpea flour batter and deep-fried until golden. Next, thinly sliced green chili peppers are battered and tossed into the roiling oil. Meanwhile, soft chewy rolls are smeared with various chutneys like tamarind, mint-coriander or peanut-garlic. The roll is stuffed with one or two potato fritters, a clutch of golden chili strips and the whole beautiful mess is squished together

Chicken Rice, Singapore

The dish is nothing more than poached chicken served over rice.  The chicken is poached on a low simmer in a gingery broth until perfectly cooked, still moist and juicy. The same broth is also used to simmer the jasmine rice, after it’s been sautéed in ginger and garlic. Slices of chicken are served over rice with a side of broth, sliced cucumber and hot sauce

A Guide To Eating And Drinking In West Africa

April 28, 2014 | No Comments » | Topics: Culture, Interesting |

Eating (and drinking) in West Africa is certainly an experience. While eating out in poorer countries like Liberia is considered a luxury, in wealthier Ghana it is more common. Here you see the ‘pine Favor’ restaurant, on the Togo/Ghana border. Businesses of all kinds in West Africa are often given ‘religious names’….’Precious Blood of Jesus Tire Rotation Shop’ is a real place in Monrovia, Liberia.

Another on the Togo/Ghana border. Dishes are often painted due to the low literacy rate of the population. This restaurant name is not a call for peace, but a shortening of the Bible verse in Isaiah 54:17 ‘No weapon formed against thee shall prosper’, a popular West African idiom.

Canada

While there are Bear Paws snacks in the Canadian ration pack, there’s the shocking omission of maple syrup. You have the choice of salmon fillet with Tuscan sauce or vegetarian couscous for the main meal. There is also the makings of a peanut butter and jelly (raspberry jam) sandwich for breakfast.

A Japanese Travel Pamphlet Translated To Describe US Customs And Mannerisms.

February 19, 2014 | No Comments » | Topics: Culture |

A Japanese pamphlet of how American mannerisms and customs was translated for Japanese tourists who wish to travel abroad in the US. Here are the suggestions and descriptions of the American way.

1: Dinner plates

In Japan, each person eating gets as many indvidual dishes as needed for the meal. Sometimes more than 10 dishes per person are used. In America, there is a method where a large bowl or dish is placed in the middle of the table, and you take as much as you like from there, and put it on a big dish said to be a "dinner plate." In Japan, meals at home are for eating, because your stomach is vacant. At an American’s dinner, there is food, decorations on the table and tableware, and music to produce a fun atmosphere. It is a time for maintaining rich human relationships. Therefore, the meal is as long as 40 minutes. In addition, often the decorative tableware has been handed down mother to daughter, two generations, three generations. In addition, there are even more valuable dishes used for Christmas and Thanksgiving. American food is flat to the taste, indifferent in the subtle difference of taste. There is no such thing there as a little “secret ingredient.” Sugar, salt, pepper, oils, and routine spices are used for family meals. There is no such thing as purely U.S. cuisine, except the hamburger, which isn’t made at home so much. There is almost nothing special to eat based on the different seasons of the year. Basically, they like sweet, high fat, high calories things.
