I have been recommending the Artifex line by Mark Richmond, the owner of Chef Knives To Go. That is truly the best "high-value" knife I have ever used. They are made from AEB-L steel, preferable over AUS8 (at least for me), and hold a razor's edge for quite a long time. Having said that, this Misen knife looks promising.
Personally, I really like the Indian food in the Arab Street area. Also, the Geylang Serai Market and Food Centre has some real treasures (although it is mostly Indonesian, with heavy Indian influences).
The sweet martabak is called "peanut pancake" in Singapore. The cakes are the same, but the filling is crushed peanuts and sugar. In Singapore, there are some places that do legit murtabak (that's what Singaporeans call it), with nutella and bananas. YUM.
@Kenji Lopez-Alt What is the best vessel for sous vide cooking? I notice a lot of restaurants use Cambro containers, but they have no insulation. What setup do you think would be ideal for use with the Anova Precision cooker?
Tito's Handmade is great stuff.
OMG!!! Look how fast they are selling!!! the first 1,000 will be gone within hours!!! So happy for them. Let's see what this thing can do!
I want to eat that so bad I am angry.
That cake looks 'black hole' black.
I too would have to agree on Ethiopa, particularly the Sidamo region. Fantastic, fantastic beans. I used to buy them from a little Japanese coffee back at home, and now living in South Korea, I can still find Sidamo beans at another tiny coffee shop. Coffee is a small world.
I think the best of both worlds is bottle/can conditioned beer. The Fat Tire can is a world's apart from the bottle/draft. At least in my own experience. +1 on always from a vessel.
Got to love South Korea. These types of brewers are in every coffee shop, regardless of the size. There are even some cafes that have only "Dutch Coffee". I don't know why they chose to call coffee made in this way "Dutch" (maybe by way of Japan?), but it is good. Since I like to save money, I'll usually just get Americanos, but on special ocassions I'll spring or a Dutch cup.
My canale has bread pudding in it!
Roberta's is my kind of place. There is nothing wrong with High Standards as long as you maintain them in your own vacuum, and NOT hold everyone accountable. I suppose that is the problem. They are defining "pizza americana".

I live on the west coast so I have been lucky enough to try most of the burgers in SF, SD, and LA. Chicago and New York City still pretty much elude my belly.
As for fast food in real life, I would say either Japanese MOS Burger or Korean Kraze Burge do the most justice to their advertisements. The Wagyu Burger from MOS is great!
This is exactly the kind of place I would love to open myself.
Sounds gross. Lotteria are really big in Korea too, the founder is actually a Korean-Japanese guy. Ghana is a Korean brand chocolate, much like Meiji in Japan. I will look for it at my local Lotteria.
I know some one could argue this point with me, but I think authentic Xinjiang food are Halal. I lived in a part of China that was full of the Muslim ethnic group native to the Xinjiang province, and all of their food was Halal. A lot of goat and beef was used in their food, and it was delicious! Their lamb skewers was some of the best "drunk" food I have ever eaten (ironically). Just wait until you can get some authentic DaPanJi in NYC!!! Where I lived, the locals had hybridized it with the province's specialty, numbing pepper, into something magical.
Brits don't know squat about meat.
What! They don't have those here in Korea!!! Well, maybe they have just released them...I will check one out on my way home from work tonight.
Too expensive! The portions look scrawny.
Thanks Nick! I was wondering, would you call this restaurant a "Chippy" or is it nicer than your average Chip Shop in England?
Yeah. Sorry to disappoint, but I did not mean to SPAM. I just thought people would enjoy reading about a pizza related article.
Gran Centenario Anejo. Done.
Those seemed like an interesting riff on Sichuan dishes.
