There has been an event with a charity component called Big Bite Bangkok where homemade food gets sold in a hotel parking lot (and sounds perfectly pleasant, frankly). And CNNGo reports, “’We wanted to do something like Smorgasburg in Brooklyn,’” says food writer Chawadee Nualkhair, a co-organizer of the event.”
American food trucks in Paris got the page one New York Times treatment: “Among young Parisians, there is currently no greater praise for cuisine than ‘très Brooklyn,’ a term that signifies a particularly cool combination of informality, creativity and quality.”
Fast Food Aberrations
Last week we saw mixology take hold at Taco Bells offering a morning elixir of orange juice and Mountain Dew.
And now Subway is encroaching on the taco chain’s territory with nachos. And not just any nachos, but nachos made with Doritos. With the ridiculous success of Taco Bell’s Doritos Locos Taco, it’s only a matter of times before cheese-powdered chips weasel their way into more restaurants. Kudos to the burger chain able to appropriate them first. May I suggest Wendy's taco salad as a candidate?
