Chinatown, New York By December 13, 2016 No Comments

One of the great pleasures of being in Manhattan is being able to walk for hours with no particular goal, especially in some areas like Chinatown, where the streets are no longer denominated by street numbers and one can easily get lost. I love to stroll through this neighborhood and discover the Chinese grocery stores, fish markets, and local shops that populate the area. Chinatown in NYC is quite exotic!


Mifune Tokyo

Mifune is an izakaya-style Japanese restaurant in Roppongi, but it is also the name of the very famous actor Mifune Toshiro. He is most remembered for his lead roles in legendary director Kurosawa Akira’s movies, such as Seven Samurai (1954) and Rashomon (1950): both black and white classics. I saw the latter and found it very interesting and quite special.


Dons Bogam

Midtown, New York By October 27, 2016 No Comments

Dons Bogam is an interesting combination of Korean BBQ and wine bar in the middle of Koreatown. The restaurant has a very modern and chic décor where you can sample a wide range of Korean foods. The façade is made of glass rectangles framed with metallic supports, allowing you to see the atmosphere inside the restaurant.
