Mochicream Mochido Donuts

mochido1.jpg When grabbing late lunch at the Mitsuwa in Torrance, i couldn’t help pausing by the J.Sweets case of Mochicream’s rainbow of mochis… but more curious, the donuts… that didn’t quite look like donuts… they were a bit glossy, a bit overly precisely placed, and we were intrigued… Turns out these “donuts” are Mochidos! Mochi donuts! They have a coating on a ring of mochi filled with cream/sauce depending on the flavor! So naturally we couldn’t resist trying some… and they are delicious! And beautifully gift boxed! Take a peek at the next page…

Eyescream

eyescream0.jpg Been dreaming about going to Barcelona to get Eyescream since i first saw it on Moco Loco last night. Amazing new conceptual twist on all the taiwanese shaved ice cream shops popping up all over… stunningly playful branding… and to turn the less than attractive treat into something more fun, they keep the toppings separate, and eyes! (Only way they could make it better is to have edible googly eyes!) Fantastic design by Estudio m Barcelona (Merche Alcalá, Marion Dönneweg). Take a peek at the incredible creatures, branding, and deliciousness on the next page.

p.s. also check them out on facebook and yelp.

Hangar 1 Vodka Tasting Tour in a Box

hangar0.jpg Hangar 1 Vodka has always been deliciously, locally, hand-made in… a hangar in Alameda, CA! And to celebrate their stunning redesign (beautiful new scientific/graduated cylinder feeling bottle complete with rubber stopper by Stranger & Stranger!), they’ve sent over a Tasting Tour in a BOX! (designed by Dead As We Know It!) Inside the box is a peek into the world Hangar 1 vodka comes from via postcards and a fun booklet ~ of course, there’s one of the new vodka bottles and dropper bottles of the various flavors ~ and a pipette! The pipette is clearly marked for “cocktails” and not marked for “shots”, but naturally we had to try tasting from it… take a peek at the hand-made vodka deliciousness and the beautiful packaging details all on the next page!

The Macallan | The Flask with Oakley

mo0.jpg It is always amazing to see some of my favorite things come together… in this case, The Macallan and Oakley have teamed up to created quite the limited edition: The Flask. And to be clear, the specialty of this set isn’t just the flask itself, but also the special elixir contained with it - The Macallan’s first-ever, single cask All American Oak Scotch Whisky, described as: “Its lemon citrus and spicy wood flavors make their bold introduction, then are tempered by rich, creamy notes, ultimately smoothing into a sophisticatedly balanced heady, sweet finish.” And only 550 limited editions of gift sets of The Flask with the accompanying 22yr single cask All American Sherry Oak Scotch Macallan will be available. (You can also buy the Flask alone here though!)

As for The Flask itself, Oakley did quite a job! The inner flask is laser welded, food grade steel wrapped in carbon fiber composite that is treated to an intensive passivation and electro-polishing procedure then clad in black anodized 5-axis machined aerospace grade aluminum. The bottom is rubberized for non-skip gripping. The cap is double sprung for ergo sipping. There’s even a small rectangular air vent on the side of the machined aluminum funnel for ventilation… and it screws precisely into the mouthpiece so you don’t lose a drop.

Take a peek at the stunning collaboration on the next page - as well as a video of them having fun testing the flask (drifting into it, yanking it, filling it from a hellicopter, dropping it, and generally having far too much fun with some stunning cars)!

Soda & Swine + Polite Provisions

swinesoda00.jpg A spontaneous road trip came up yesterday which landed me at the brand new Soda & Swine is a meatball and soda spot and its alcoholic pharmacy of a sister, Polite Provisions that just popped up in Normal Heights in San Diego… being unexpected, this post is a cell phone peek into our experiences… lots of fun branding and signage… and it’s an interesting set up. You can only order meatballs and soda and soft serve and pie at Soda & Swine, but you can have it brought over to you at Polite Provisions… you can order cocktails, punch bowls, beer cocktails, cocktails on tap, wine, etc at Polite Provisions, but you can’t bring them to Soda & Swine. To go between the two - you go to the hallway of the bathrooms in Polite Provisions and through the doorway to pop out behind the fireplace in Soda & Swine, which is actually in a roofless area that feels like you’re in between buildings (just look up to notice the stars and moon shining brightly down on you amongst the heatlamps)…

Interesting set up - cute spaces - tucked away in a quickly hipsterifying Normal Heights… it’s surrounded by bus stops, liquor store, dollar store and across from the Air Conditioned Lounge. And i can’t help but wonder if meatballs are the new sausage… Soda & Swine lets you pick the meatball style (smashed in a slider, 3 in a sub, on pasta, or 3 a la carte) then the flavor, cheese, and sauce. You must try the Smoked Pork, it’s definitely the best of the lot. Also the brussel sprouts with bacon and broccolini are delicious… apricot soft serve tasted like dried apricots and cream blended together… and the Caribbean Vacation on tap and Scottish Breakfast were lovely. If you’re ready - take a peek at the details on the next page!

p.s. There seems to be a dispute as to what this area counts as - is it Normal Heights? Between Heights? North Park? Regardless - you’ll find these two at 30th and Adams!

The Marshmallow Apothecary

robin0.jpg Here’s the latest from London-based editor and resident zoologist, Justine Aw!

Last night, we braved the snow to cure our ailments with a round up medicinal marshmallows at The Robin Collective’s brand new pop-up cafe in the heart of London’s Carnaby Street. Visitors will have the chance to have their love lives analysed, diagnosed and medicated with fluffy, pillowy, deliciously flavored marshmallows. We were thrilled to get a sneak peek at the project, as we fell in love with medicinal Marshmallows as soon as we first encountered them at the 2011 Experimental Food Society exhibition. More photos of the pop-up shop on the next page!
