Best Elote in New York

This is a Hipmunk post from Jodi Ettenberg of Legal Nomads. Elote, a popular Mexican snack, takes your regular corn on the cob and takes it to a level you will savour, every last bite.

Chicken in a Soda Can

This is a Hipmunk post from Jodi Ettenberg of Legal Nomads. Another interesting chicken dish from Vietnam: Ga Tan. Literally meaning "fall-off-the-bone chicken", they are simmered in a variety of medicinal herbs (a recipe originally from China) and said to be good for your health. I found this one in Hanoi, but they are not always…
