  1. ToraTravels: no bangin' in Bangkok (january 2014)

    Bangkok is similar to many Chinese cities. Itís a massive sprawl of ugly apartment buildings and expressways casting the streets in their shadows. Itís still dark at 5 am in the morning after I leave the diesel train and hop into a tuk-tuk, a motorcycle with a ittle carriage welded to the back, for a fast ride towards Khao San Road, the one of the most disgusting places in the world. By the time I get there the sun is illuminating the street and the few old white dudes with their arm around a hooker ...

  2. ToraTravels: A-party-heid in Israel

    My last night in Tel Aviv happened to be on Israelís Independence day, which is on a different date every year.

    Two greasy kebabs, a double burger (a great $6 one, though), a troutload of snickers, chips, a bag of chocolate candies, beans, ...
  4. Vivi22's Dietary Adventures Prologue: The Beginninning... inning!

    Before we begin, I want to say that if you're coming in here expecting recipes or for me to try new foods, you should probably just turn around and head on back to the forums. I'm a terrible cook, care little for the effort that making interesting food takes, and would be perfectly happy to eat nothing but ground beef all day everyday for the rest of my life.

    So what am I going to be doing here? My plan is to do a regular series of posts on my diet, the experiments I plan on performing ...

  6. First Blog Post: Let's make this a food dining blog!

    Since there's a blog feature on this site, and I take tons of pictures of food when I eat out, I figured why not try my hand at making a food blog? This post will feature: Graham Elliot in Chicago, IL (
