This music video will make you hungry for Korean food. And then the ending will crush your soul. But until then, enjoy sexy close-up shots of steamed rice, a bubbling pot of stew, fried eggs, and more.
In the battle between chocolate "mushroom cap" and biscuit "mushroom stem" snacks, how does the imitator stand up to the original? Pretty well.

Don't let go of that ice cream cone, kitty. NEVER LET GO.
Snapshots from Hong Kong: Dim Sum at Tim Ho Wan, aka the World's Cheapest Michelin-starred Restaurant
I knew my trip to Hong Kong wouldn't be complete without at least one dim sum meal. But how do you choose where to go in a city with hundreds of dim sum choices? Maybe narrow it down to Michelin-starred restaurants. Maybe super narrow it down to the cheapest Michelin-starred restaurant in the world: Tim Ho Wan.
Fast food chain Lotteria in Japan is teaming up with famous ramen chain Menya Musashi to bring you the Menya Musashi Ramen Burger: a seasoned, lightly charred ramen patty, stewed barbecue pork (chashu), and mayo on a burger bun.
The second season of Richard Blais's YouTube cooking show is starting with a New Orleans-inspired mash-up: the Spicy Po' Boy Muffaletta Burger.
Dump a busload of American nerds, jocks, and cheerleaders in the middle of nowhere in Europe. What could possibly go wrong? Eh, they might get chased down by murderous butchers who want to use their flesh for burgers.
You will watch this animated short featuring a floppy blob of a dog making an omelette for its exhausted, depressed owner, and you will enjoy it. Thank you, Madeline Sharafian (a BFA2 character animator at CalArts) for these two-and-a-half minutes of heartswelling cuteness.
We may celebrate burgers year-round on AHT, but May is even more burger-crazed than the rest of the year because, for reasons we don't know, it's National Hamburger Month. Hooray for arbitrary food holidays! Use May as an excuse to eat great burgers, cook great burgers (and brush up your burger-cooking skills), buy burger gifts, read a burger book, and reacquaint yourself with America's burger styles.
You may have never thought, "Hey, I could go for a double-decker grilled cheese sandwich made with three slices of French toast thickly layered with loads of oozing cheese and stuffed with perfectly poached eggs," but now you will.
Po Lin Monastery isn't a destination meal, but it's perfectly good and reasonably priced for a major tourist attraction.
In their latest video, Epic Meal Time stuffs a monstrous pile of a beef patty with chocolate bars and marshmallow cream, coat it with Nutella, top it with marshmallows and bacon, and sandwich everything between custom graham cracker sheets.
I wouldn't go out of my way for this burger, but I would go out of my way to eat at this welcoming, friendly little diner.
Starting next Wednesday, April 24, McDonald's Japan is giving away french fry holders for cars as part of their "potato holder" campaign. But the "potato holder" can do more than just hold potatoes. So much more.
Today, Shake Shack announced they'll be opening in Las Vegas at the end of 2014. We'll finally be able to do a real side-by-side In-N-Out vs. Five Guys vs. Shake Shack taste test.
If you're like me and will eat pretty much anything flavored with black sesame, then the hot black sesame paste from Yat Yat Sweet is for you. It's not a paste so much as a thick soup/liquidy pudding that coats your innards with sweet black sesame.
Ngau Kee Food Cafe is an old school, family-run Hong Kong-style restaurant well known in the neighborhood for good, inexpensive, homey Cantonese food. Unfortunately, Ngau Kee's landlord doesn't share the same appreciation for awesome food, and the restaurant is closing this Sunday, April 21.
I go a bit nuts every spring and summer when fresh produce is at its best. I end up buying things willy nilly, without much thought as to how I'm going to prepare, much less eat, all of it myself. After several valiant dinner parties and late night asparagus binges, I still find myself with far too much produce to even consider finishing everything before it starts to lose quality.
Bake the mangos under the coconut batter, then flip it out to reveal one beauty of a moist and juicy cake.
Cheesy grits topped with a mix of spring vegetables sautéed with shallots in butter. A soft poached egg tops the whole mix.
Singaporeans escape the heat with a mound of sweetened shaved ice that puts a Snoopy Sno Cone to shame.
"You have so much more to buy here than we do in London!"
It's the third time in half an hour that Fuchsia Dunlop, cook, writer, and scholar of Chinese food, has said so on our shopping trip through Chinatown.
Fuchsia's new cookbook, Every Grain of Rice, is all about getting the most out of simple home cooked dishes that rely on a couple main ingredients a few supporting pantry items. She took us around Chinatown to show us just what those ingredients were—and how to cook with them.
A quick and easy vegan pasta dish with snap peas flavored with garlic and black pepper. A touch of cornstarch helps the sauce to emulsify into a pasta-coating texture.
Known as Eden Center, this suburban strip mall has been growing into the East Coast capital of Vietnamese immigrant culture for almost 40 years. Here are the 10 must-eats: broken rice, bun cha, and more!
This simple old fashioned dish with flat and tender dumplings is nothing short of slurpy chicken heaven.
When done right, clam chowder should be rich and filling, but not sludgy or stew-like. But what is the best way to cook chowder? Can the dump-and-simmer method be improved upon by some modern technique? I decided to break it down element by element and figure out how to make the platonic ideal of my childhood Cape Cod memories.
This creamy tomato sauce packs a flavorful punch. Toast up some buttery Parmesan garlic bread to serve on the side.
A one-skillet supper of couscous, squash, and pancetta.
A rich homemade chicken stock forms the base of this hearty, creamy chowder.
Cold weather means bulking up and pasta's one great way to do so. We've had some great vegetarian-friendly pastas of late, and even if ingredients change with the seasons, here are ten kitchens we trust to make us a more than satisfying veg-friendly noodle.
When I heard that The NoMad was offering a sandwiched version of their incredible chicken—foie gras, truffles, brioche, and all—on their brunch menu for only $26, I suddenly thought to myself, hey, now I can finally afford to eat Daniel Humm's roast chicken whenever the mood strikes, before my line of thought stopped with a big mental record-scratch: wait a minute. That's a $26 chicken sandwich. Could it possibly be worth the price? I saw it as my duty to find out.
"Am I really going to live in Jersey City?" Jason Hua, the executive chef at The Dutch, asked himself before moving from Manhattan. But after spending a day across the Hudson river in New Jersey's second most populous city, with its Brooklyn-resembling tree-lined streets and sweeping views of the Manhattan skyline and Ms. Statue of Liberty, you'll start to understand why. Especially when you get to eating.
Established in the 1940s by Mayor Fiorello LaGuardia, the Essex Street Market has witnessed—and played part in—the ever-changing culture of the Lower East Side. Market newcomer Dorie Greenspan took us on a crawl of her new home. Follow along on our tour!
There's a reason why Alton Brown's brined roast turkey recipe from Good Eats is the number one recipe on the Food Network's website. In this video, he sits down at our office and talks turkey and the methodology behind his recipe.
Casseroles are the real secret to a good home cook's Thanksgiving (or any large dinner party) success. All of the work is done ahead of time, which means they bake off right alongside the turkey, or even while the turkey is resting. Try this casserole with creamed swiss chard, white beans, and a crunchy breadcrumb topping.
Before you continue reading, may I kindly suggest that you do the following in order to save yourself some time in the future: drop what you are doing right now, and shoot an email out to all of your Thanksgiving guests informing them of the menu change you are about to make. This year, you will be frying your brussels sprouts. And this is why.
Baked pasta dishes should be hearty, but sometimes they turn out heavy, too—and those two things don't necessarily need to go hand in hand. Sure, it's easy enough to load up a baking dish with pasta and cheese and meat and whatever else, but this recipe from Martha Stewart is a little more delicate. There's plenty of kale to stand in for some of the pasta, and an airy ricotta to keep things light.
There's not much to a good fried fish sandwich. The real key is all in the batter. A traditional beer batter is made with lightly leavened flour and cold, bubbly beer.
One thing I have been eating a lot of lately is these beancurd sticks. Like tofu, they are high in protein and low in fat; unlike tofu, they keep indefinitely in the cupboard. Here are three dishes you can make with beancurd sticks.
In Houston, "Chinatown" should probably more aptly be named "Asiatown," or perhaps even "Vietnam-town," as the population there is by no means solely Chinese. I might suggest calling it "Little Saigon," but there's nothing little about it either. Occupying a 6 square mile area, it's bigger than New York's Chinatown, Little Italy, Soho, Lower East Side, East Village, West Village, Flatiron District, and Tribeca combined. Heck, there are single mega-supermarkets in Houston's chinatown that are big enough to house the entirety of New York's Chinatown. Bigger doesn't always mean better, but in this case I can say that the Vietnamese food in Houston's Chinatown is some of the finest I've had anywhere outside of Vietnam.
