How would fonts taste if re-imagined as plates of food?

Loved this site:  Taste the Font takes existing fonts and re-imagines them as plates of food.  For example, the plates below are reimagined versions of Times New Roman font, along with explanation:

 

Taste The Font’s Times plate. 

 

 

Food and font history.

Per the site’s creator, the Taste the Font originated from a question – ” is it possible to describe the taste of the font?” Great combination of creativity, history and typography. For the rest of their fonts and foods, head over to their site here.

Best Tacos in NYC, 2013 edition

This is a Hipmunk post from Jodi Ettenberg of Legal Nomads.

With plenty of great eats to try in NYC, how to find the best? Gothamist has put together an updated list of the best tacos in New York and its outer boroughs, with reviews of each. Sadly our pick for best elote is not there, but there are plenty of other great options to try.

I can definitely vouch for Tortilleria Mexicana Los Hermanos (271 Starr Street between Wyckoff Street and St. Nicholas Ave in Bushwick, Brooklyn). The rest of their list is on my list to hit up next time I’m visiting town.

Best Elote in New York

Jodi Ettenberg Legal nomads

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. Fresh ears of corn are grilled, then topped with mayonnaise, fresh cotilla cheese and chili powder. Sometimes smoked paprika is used as well. As snacks go it is satisfying and filling, for a very reasonable price tag.

So where to find it if you’re not in Mexico? In New York, Cafe Habana makes what I think is the best elote in town. Don’t believe me? Photo below.

Cafe Habana
17 Prince Street (at Elizabeth street), NYC.
