Jeni's Ice Cream COLORS Collection Ohio isn't a place most people brag about living. Honestly, I think Columbus is a great city for foodies (and many people seem to be enamored with that one sports-ball team). But if we have one thing to...
This post is a bit of a straggler from my other posts on our Japan trip. I’ve been going through the huge number of photos I took, and these jumped out at me. Not because they’re the best photos I took in Japan, but I have a huge soft...
 Convenience store food might seem like a strange thing to focus on, particularly for a self-proclaimed foodie. If you live or have spent time in the US, you know that prepared foods in convenience stores are generally inferior to even the worst fast food, and often seem like an...
Last week, we took a quick jaunt up to Traverse City, Michigan for some autumnal goodness. We were a little early for the full glory of autumn leaves, but did find some fantastic food and drink! Philips Cider Mill was a perfect roadside stop on the way up, with fresh...

Yokohama's Cup Noodle Museum The Cup Noodle Museum was our first stop on the day trip to Yokohama that included the Raumen Museum (see that post here).  Both were fantastic in their own right, but if I had to pick just one, the...
The story of Ivan Ramen is an unlikely one. For a foreigner to open up shop in Tokyo and be lauded for making Japanese food is nearly unheard of due to a competitive Tokyo food scene, and the Japanese idea that foreigners simply can't master Japanese-ness in all its...
