Plump hoisin meatballs burst with sweet and savory flavor, combining notes of scallion, chili peppers, lime, and sesame, creating a lovely and colorful combination when paired with these light and airy rice noodles. (πŸ“·: @dennistheprescott )
Exquisitely moist crepes, with a healthy shake of powdered sugar and a handful of blueberries on top for good measure, always make for a simple yet delicious breakfast or dessert β€”Β whenever that crepe craving may strike. To make these French delights at home, all you need is a little flour, sugar, salt, milk, eggs, butter, and your preferred toppings of choice. (πŸ“·: @anna_banana_co )
"Would you be able to tell there's sweet potato in these brownies? Or that there's no butter in sight? β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β € I'd describe myself as a curious cook, and a very defiant one, too. I never follow a recipe to the letter β€”Β actually, to be honest, not even the slightest bit. I'd always tweak the ingredient list, use a different method, and so on. My biggest weakness when it comes to treats is morphing a 'regular' recipe into its vegan alternative, and sneaking some veggies in, if possible. How do I know if I succeed? If my boyfriend, who's rather picky, asks for seconds of my vegan dessert." (πŸ“·: @_chiarabones_ )
The soft, thin skin of Din Tai Fung's soup dumplings tenderly holds together a crab-and-pork-filled-broth that you'll be daydreaming about for weeks on end. First launched in Taipei in 1958 as a retail shop selling cooking oil, Din Tai Fung transitioned into a restaurant specializing in soup dumplings and noodles in 1972, and now wins rave reviews at its multiple locations all around the world.

Tucked into a quiet stretch of NYC's West Village, Michelin-starred chef Yoshihiko delightfully serves up artfully crafted Japanese omakase β€” pictured here is his famous uni and salmon roe. The term "omakase," literally meaning "I'll leave it up to you," is used to express the concept of food selection being determined by the chef, who then generally presents a series of plates, often progressing from the lightest to the most substantial dishes. (πŸ“·: @brunchboys πŸ“: KOSAKA)
It's still summer in the northern hemisphere, which means it's the perfect time to toast to its last few days with a quintessential summer meal. @acozykitchen serves up freshly grilled summer squash gyros with tzatziki β€”Β add your favorite greens and a few cherry tomatoes for pops of flavor and color, and the last thing you'll be thinking about is the first day of fall.

Slide on to one of the retro leather barstools at The Williamsburg Hotel and enjoy a post-shopping bespoke cocktail in the hippest hotel in the 'Burg. A rainbow-colored string installation dances over the lobby bar, and chevron wood details made from antique picture frames balance out the exposed brick walls for an added element of rusticity. (πŸ“·: @cainite_ πŸ“: The Williamsburg Hotel)
Carnivores and vegans alike will flock to this spicy madras curry dish, lovingly crafted by @avantgardevegan. The vibrant red coloring is achieved by the rich hues of chili peppers, paprika, and turmeric, so be prepared for your taste buds to do a little dance. (πŸ“·: @avantgardevegan πŸ“: Cardiff)
Bilbao's Azurmendi is so much more than a popular restaurant; it's an incredible culinary and gastronomic experience and has even been named as one of the 50 best restaurants in the world. Upon arrival, guests are led to a glass atrium, handed a glass of dry white wine, and offered a tour of the sustainable vegetable gardens and greenhouses from which much of the produce is grown. Pictured here is one of their signature dessert dishes, the aptly named "Honey." (πŸ“·: @zeboy πŸ“: Azurmendi)
Derived from the Valencian term for the pan it's traditionally cooked in, the Spanish specialty of paella is ideal for sharing with loved ones. Most often cooked over an open fire, the dish overflows with flavors that tantalize the senses β€”Β but those who get to scrape the pan are perhaps the luckiest, rewarded with the crunchy rice crust that forms at the bottom known as socarrat. (πŸ“·: @acouplecooks πŸ“: Barcelona, Spain)
While watching these pillowy soft pork buns chase each other around is oddly entertaining, to be honest, we'd rather be eating them. A modern take on the traditional Japanese izakaya, Cho Cho San in Potts Point, Sydney, is a minimalist space with pops of color from the sake and shochu bottles lining the wall behind the bar. After the pork buns have been devoured, it's highly recommended to try the stuffed calamari and green tea soft serve. (πŸ“·: @nik_to πŸ“: Cho Cho San)
Yaki onigiri, or crispy Japanese rice cakes, make the perfect morning meal or snack. The recipe's history dates back roughly 2,000 years, morphing in shape, form, and size over time, but never losing an ounce of its appeal. Often filled with meats and fish, vegetarians can opt for seaweed, pickled greens, or soybean varieties. How do you know if you've got yourself a good onigiri? Be on the lookout for one made by hand that's not packed too hard. (πŸ“·: @anettvelsberg )
