Popups are cooking stations within the main kitchen of a restaurant dedicated to fulfilling delivery-only orders. Eater recently profiled a Dallas, TX-based chain called SushiYaa, which owns five physical locations but houses a couple dozen brands within them. The virtual brands are only available through Uber Eats.
About a quarter of US methane emissions comes from food rotting in landfills.
The dates on our packaged food products look so authoritative, but the way Moser tells it, they were invented by marketing folks to increase sales at the cost of disposing of otherwise good products that have an expired sell-by date.

We planned the donut tour. We did the donut tour. We ate donuts. We made five stops on the tour, but this video only covers four of them.

Sandee’s not such a fan of the new theme here at MaisonBisson. Without really telling me that I should have discussed the new decor with her before making any big decisions, she does say she feels it doesn’t suit her style. There are lots of ways to resolve the, um, difference of opinion, but we […] » about 200 words

Trust me, I like renovated mill buildings, but why confuse it with faux grecian columns and too many pictures of dead celebrities? I mean, the […] » about 400 words
Like all well bred women, my mother always told me not to play with my food. However, as we get older we realize that sometimes ignoring the rules is just as important as, generally, following them.

After being down for fifteen years straight, milk consumption is up. Up big, and prices are rising to meet it.
What I want to try next is bacon cheesecake or chili powder on french toast or maraschino cherries mixed with jalapeños. All of those sound delightful to me.
Some time ago in St Louis, I stumbled upon Eat-Rite Diner. Aparently I wasn’t the first to be taken in by its charms. Yelp notes: This is a MUST in St. Louis. However don’t go here for the friendly staff, good food, or fun atmosphere. This place is a joke! They will need to buzz […] » about 200 words

My own experience has been that the tools I need for my trade are paper, tobacco, food, and a little whisky.
The plan was to meet Jessamyn and Greg at the India Queen last night, so discovering this note yesterday on Slashfood about “frankies” had the added excitement of both discovering a new food I wanted to eat, and being in a position to get it that day — the sort of instant satisfaction one doesn’t […] » about 200 words

Thing is, Thanksgiving isn’t so much about what we were, but who we are. Thanksgiving celebrates the two most important things in life: food and […] » about 200 words
