Pizza What?

IMG_5203As best as I can tell Stickhouse is an Italian chain that makes gelato popsicles and a dizzying array of flavors and options. The fact that someone thought that making a pizza looking plater out of one of them is just, well….very creative.    Love that at the top of the picture they are serving it with something that looks like french fries: work that theme!IMG_5200This particular store is in Siam Paragon a huge upscale mall adjacent to the Siam Skytrain station and is filled with super expensive international designer stores: Prada, Marc Jacobs, Hermes, Dolce and Gabana, Calvin Kline and so on.  Bangkok is trying to compete with Singapore which has Orchard Road – basically an entire street of malls. At this rate it looks like Bangkok is going for an entire city of malls.  The thing is that in between all the crazy expensive stores is some good food, local designers (less and less) and just some crazy shit like Pizzalato!  I am working on a series of posts about the malls here.   Truly it’s hard to believe sometimes that we are in Thailand because the last time I have seen this much Japanese food was in Japan!  Bangkok sure has changed in the 8 years since I was last here.



About urbanfoodguy

I'm a self taught cook with a dedication to buying and eating food that is as humanely and sustainably raised as possible. Which is why in addition to recipes you will see a lot of environmental/political reporting here. I started cooking when I was about 6, it's something I always loved to do. Watching Graham Kerr - aka "The Galloping Gourmet" - was what got me started and I have never really looked back. Over the years I've been a private chef, a caterer, and a food stylist for magazines such as Bon Appétit, Food & Wine, Real Simple, Oprah, Martha Stewart's Everyday Food and many more. I've also worked in the prep kitchen for the Food Network on the Bobby Flay and Paula Deen shows. Now I work at home in my kitchen sharing with you here recipes that I create or that other people have created that inspire me and I think you will like. I love my neighborhood (the Lower East Side of Manhattan) and I love to travel. Because NYC is such a big place I tend to focus mostly on my 'hood and the ones that are close by: The East Village, Bowery, Chinatown and Williamsburg. My love of travel has no limits really, I'm always ready to get on a plane. I was lucky enough to have a business for many years that allowed me to spend a lot of time in South East Asia. These days I've been spending time in Mexico, Germany, Canada and the West Coast of the U.S., but check back you never know where I might end up. I do consulting, cooking classes, and freelance lifestyle writing so if you are interested please send me a note:
