SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — They hop. They crawl. They squirm. And they could be coming to a dinner plate near you. An increasing number of "entopreneurs" are launching businesses to feed a growing appetite for crickets, mealworms…

When most New Yorkers think of Murray Hill, they likely think of the area on the east side of Manhattan, just south of the United Nations between 34th and 42nd Street and east of Madison Avenue…and they well might, since its tree-lined streets harbo

I'm going to start my own mukbang show!

Koreans Have An Insatiable Appetite For Watching Strangers Binge Eat : The Salt : NPR http://www.npr.org/blogs/thesalt/2015/03/24/392430233/koreans-have-an-insatiable-appetite-for-watching-strangers-binge-eat (Share from CM Browser)
What's behind the curious food fad of mukbang, or live-streamed broadcasts of people eating endless amounts of food? The genre is so popular in South Korea that its stars pull in $10,000 a month.

Talk about getting saved in the nick of time. The owner of Shirokia Tower, a condo in Flushing, Queens, facing foreclosure, was about to see the building auctioned off. Nearly 100 investors showed up ready to place their bids. All of them went home disappointed, reported the New York Daily News, ...

River Japanese Cuisine has a wide range of traditional sushi, sashimi, bento, and donkatsu fare as well as dishes like Avocado Soup. Good presentation, but the fish is not as fresh as other sushi places. The Soft Shell Crab appetizer was a disappointment: they gave us a very small, very oily, and not very tasty crab. The Sashimi Bento Box was ok, but the amount of fish was small and not very delicious -- they included fake crab meat, which should not be included in a $16 bento box. Service was efficient, but not very friendly. The decor (left over from the previous restaurant at this location) was very good and gave a nice laid-back lounge vibe.

Some of the best sushi I've eaten! Oita Sushi is an intimate neighborhood sushi parlor with an amazing chef and dedicated and caring staff. We tried their Manhattan Combo with Udon and was pleasantly surprised by the texture of the chewy noodles and the crispness of their sushi rolls and salads. The spices give all the food a nice kick, but don't overpower the taste. The food here is super fresh (the salmon we had was bought that day and tasted delicious) and they buy organic food directly from local farms. Don't forget to try their yummy Triple Ceviche and Curry Udon!

Had the salami provolone sandwich, which was fresh and tasty. Would recommend for late night snack.

Danny's Steakhouse & Oyster Bar is the best steakhouse in the Flushing, New York area with an amazing variety of mouth-watering oysters from around the world as well as aged, prime cuts of steak. We tried the Blue Point from Long Island, NY (mildly salty), Beau Soleil from New Brunswick. Canada (a delicate flavor with firm meat), and the Kumamoto from Oakland, WA (which has a wweet and creamy flavor). My favorite was the Beau Soleil (we had a second tasting before the steak came out). We tried the Prime Porterhouse for Three (aged) and it was simply delicious with the wasabi mashed potatoes and creamed spinach we ordered on the side. We also tried their stuffed mushrooms, crab cakes, and thick-cut bacon (truly a miracle). Don't forget to try their very light and fluffy cheese cake (from next door)!

Was really looking forward to eating at the Waffle House. Unfortunately, our visit ended up being an unsavoury experience. The staff offered no greeting or acknowledgement when our party of three adults and two children entered. We ordered waffles, but it took them forever to bring them to our table and the Cook kept handling the food with his bare hands, which he then proceeded to wipe on the side of his clothes. Our waiter kept getting our order wrong and kept forgetting to bring us coffee or refilling. Another server kept smoking cigarettes (inside the restaurant) a few feet from us, even in the presence of a mother feeding her baby. The chicken apple pecan had no pecans and only bits of tiny desiccated Apple bits. Not recommended.

Caffe Bene makes food that looks good, but is average in terms of taste and service. For example, I ordered the inappropriately-named "Oriental Sandwich" and found the bun was soggy and had lost its texture -- also, there was only three pieces of the "oriental" shrimp -- very stingy for an $8 sandwich. When I asked for some honey for my drink, the server initially refused. Then, when I asked again, she wanted to charge me for the drop of honey. Coffee was expensive and bitter. The faux library walls had several "CCTV in operation" signs -- just like home, where l let all my guests know in advance they are under surveillance. Overall, a poorly executed and managed chain store franchise that treats it's customers like potential criminals and overcharges for badly served and superficially pretty food.

The Fisher Building at 321 Ashland Place is part of the Brooklyn Academy of Music (BAM) and a unique venue for cultural events and parties. BAM is a multi-arts center located in Brooklyn, New York, known as a center for progressive and avant garde performance. The Fisher Building is visually appealing and has interesting architectural features, including modern skyline and ceiling designs on its second-floor performance space. BAM Fisher is a new facility designed for LEED Gold certification and located at 321 Ashland Place. BAM Fisher's second-floor also features a bar and cafe-style seating for intimate performances and cultural events. Would recommend BAM Fisher for large corporate events and parties.
