First Thoughts on The 2019 Food and Rum Festival Events in Barbados.

This is the tenth anniversary of the Food and Rum Festival in Barbados. It is now a decade old. I’ve been going to these events every year as long as I am in the country.  I’ve been to food demonstrations, rum tastings and food events. This year feels smaller than past years. This year’s events…

Cruising Into San Juan, Puerto Rico

Cruising around the Caribbean is the easiest vacation you will ever have. Great weather, great drinks and even better music. As an island boy, I may seem biased, but I am. The best vibes are Caribbean vibes. I firmly believe that there is no better place in the world than Barbados however, San Juan, Puerto…

Hanoi’s Hippest Restaurant: Chops.

Chops is a testimony to the fact that the hipster movement is real. Found in the heart of Hanoi, Vietnam this fantastic food outlet could be at home in any metropolitan city. The burgers are homemade, the beer is craft and the vibe is cool. The truth is, there are probably about 100 reasons why…

What Happens When Condescension Is The Secret Ingredient.

I recently decided to carry a friend to a beach bar, lets call it ‘La Bacane’, for some birthday drinks and possibly a bite to eat. When we got there, the place was scantily occupied by other patrons, which we assumed was due to the questionable weather we were having. Nonetheless, at that moment the…

Why Everyone Should Be Booking a Table at ‘Top Deck’ Tomorrow.

The Top Deck is Chef Jason Howard’s addition to the culinary world on the west coast of Barbados. Their modern take on Caribbean food is delicious and absolutely stunning. The Barbadian born Chef is a Master of Modern Caribbean Cuisine. The menu manages to be complex, yet familiar to the Caribbean palate. If you flip…

Eating Sea Bass at Jake’s on Lake Tahoe

On our road trip we were mostly eating snacks and fast food. Eating endless junk food was great but when we got the chance to sit down with local friends at Lake Tahoe, we jumped at the chance. Is there anything better than eating fish on the waterfront? Jake’s is set up like the local…

Am I Cool Enough to Eat at Anthony’s Coal Fire Pizza?

Ever walk into a place and immediately think, maybe I’m not cool enough to be here? That was what it was like walking into Anthony’s Coal Fire Pizza. It’s loud, it’s packed and everyone is laughing. Daunting as fuck, but don’t let that stop you. I was told Anthony’s Pizza is the best pizza in…

Cafe Mitra, Restaurant and Bar for Date Night in Kathmandu, Nepal.

Kathmandu isn’t generally thought of as a romantic spot in comparison to Venice, Hawaii  or France however, I don’t think anyone gave Cafe Mitra that memo. I went there for a quiet dinner and it felt like I fell into a first date in a romantic comedy, although I was by myself. The setting was…

Discovering Wally’s Smokehouse, Trinidad.

Driving around Trinidad my cousin pointed out a smoke house that he wanted to try. Being a man with impeccable taste for meats, I was instantly intrigued. We passed it at first, but on our way back, tired and rather starved, we made one of the best decisions I’ve made in a long time. We…

Bold Flavors in ‘L’ Oliveraie’, Marseille

Visiting France is all about the food. We have all heard about french technique and how good french food is, but have you ever eaten this mythical french food that everyone is raving about? It stands to reason that if you want good french food, a good place to start is in France. The minute…
