CURIOSO HONG KONG

Sal Curioso

Food and invention come together at Hong Kong’s Curioso. The expressive restaurant thematically orchestrates a dance between gourmet and Rube Goldberg. Serving up family style meals that are meant to be shared, Curioso has a fun atmosphere. As they describe it, “The restaurant seats up to 90 and the interior is a reflection of its larger than life personality and food creator / scientist Sal Curioso. Entering the restaurant you will be introduced to his inventions including the Guacaloco, the amazing chicken that lays avocados that tumble down chutes to make guacamole or even the squidpop, a machine that defies reality as it turns squid into hot fresh popcorn.” Definitely check it out if you find yourself in Hong Kong.

BAR LEONEO

High-level craftsmanship collides with the practicality of a basement hangout at Leoneo. Located on the first floor of an apartment in Fukuoka City Japan, the bar’s atmosphere promotes long nights of laughter and good conversation. While Japan is riddled with small bars and restaurants, what makes Leoneo special is its interior design choices. Designed by the japanese studio Atelier HUGE, you can see how they infused modern touches within a bare and unfinished shell. This juxtaposition adds to the intimacy. It feels like someone came and injected a scene of hyper cool reality in your very own basement. We have a few images posted below.

A PARISIAN CRAFT

craft cafe paris

Creatives need inspiring spaces to develop their ideas. Paris offers this in spades – parks, museums, architecture and more. It’s all there. But sometimes a humble location with a stable table and a strong cup of coffee is enough. That’s what makes Craft Café the ideal spot. Instead of ushering away customers with laptops once they’ve finished their coffee, Craft encourages them to stay and use their wifi and electrical outlets. Located near the Canal Saint-Martin, Craft’s interior is beautifully designed with well-considered seating that offers a variety of options for customers looking for a quick bite to eat or a longer outpost for work. We have a few images listed below. Click Read More to view.

LONDON'S MVMNT CAFÉ

mvmnt cafe

Echoing a temporary beauty of its own, Movement Café conjures inspiration for its pop-up shop via poetic tweets. As you approach you’ll notice bright words screaming off a plywood aesthetic. It’s a classic pair. The super-bold matched with the understated. They both suggest something temporary and inviting at the same time, which really shows the project’s roots. British designer and creator, Morag Myerschough came up with the idea from a series of tweets posted by the poet Lemn Sissay. Built in just 16 days, the shop quickly became a must see destination that moves from café to performance space effortlessly. We highly recommend checking it out. We’ve posted a few images below.

DEL POPOLO

del popolo

There’s a lot of pride in pizza. Like most people, we have our favorites. For instance, Philadelphia’s Dolce Carini on Chestnut, between 19th and 20th, has the greatest pizza on earth. The only thing that’d make them better is if they were on wheels traveling through the city. That’s what caught our attention when we heard about San Francisco’s Del Popolo. Italian for “Of the People,” its founder Jon Darsky decided he wanted to deliver high quality pizza made, prepared and delivered right in front of its loyal customers. It’s a genius concept. Plus the mobile kitchen looks awesome.

As they describe it, “Del Popolo is a mobile pizzeria committed to creating rustic Neapolitan-inspired pizza using ingredients sourced from small, generational producers. We’re housed in a twenty-foot transatlantic shipping container that’s been re-purposed and modified into a kitchen. A wall of glass doors exposes the interior, including the traditional Italian-made wood-fired oven.” If you’re in the San Francisco area, follow their twitter to find out if the Del Popolo truck will be visiting your neighborhood. Below we have a few photos and additional information. Click Read More to view.

YOOBI SUSHI

yoobi sushi

Yoobi Sushi is a fun new restaurant located on Lexington Street in London’s Soho. Proudly known as the city’s first Temakeria, the shop offers a unique way to experience sushi. By serving Temaki, sushi in a cone, they’ve imported an inventive spin on the tradition. It’s inspired by Brazil, where Japanese immigrants have made Temaki a popular dish. Yoobi hopes to do the same for London. After traveling from Kobe to Tokyo, Rio to Porto and then to New York City, the owners combined their experiences to create something fresh and new for London. As they describe it, “We’ve taken the best bits of our travels, added a dash of originality and mixed it all up to create our very own brand of sushi – one where there’s no chopsticks, no plastic cartons and no formality, just great fresh food.” We’ve posted a few images of their beautiful restaurant below. If you find yourself in London, be sure to check it out. Click Read More to view.
