When I hit the road I do so with small camera and big appetite. These are the musings and photos that result.

We had time for just one lunch in NYC and went with Xi’an Famous Foods.

THELEwala Indian Cart Food

I don't visit New York City often enough to be able to recommend the trendy new eateries that are always popping up, but these five places are tried-and-true for delicious snacks under $10.

The Chao Phraya River cuts through the city of Bangkok, and along it one can find a couple of floating food markets – or as I refer to them, the world’s longest outdoor cafeterias. Some markets have become overly populated with tourists, so we headed to the more out-of-the-way Amphawa, about an hour from the center of the city.

Gastón Acurio's La Mar is currently wowing diners in the Mandarin Oriental Miami.  Tanta is one of Acurio's restaurants in Lima: a less formal, neighborhood-type place serving basic Peruvian fare faultlessly prepared (lomo saltado, aji de galina, anticuchos and so forth). Here are some photos of my meal there.

Morimoto South Beach opened last week at the Shelborne Wyndham Grand South Beach. Here are photos of Morimoto Napa.

A flock of food bloggers and other media folks from Miami and New York were invited to fly on JetBlue’s inaugural daily non-stop flight from Ft. Lauderdale to Lima, Peru. Todd Erickson (Haven and Huahua’s Taquería). was on the flight as well, as he was to prepare a JetBlue-sponsored collaboration dinner with celebrated Lima chef Pedro Miguel Schiaffino.
