The Best Spots Around the World to Experience Food (Without Eating It)

For those seeking the best in interior design and environmental typography, make a stop into Sunday’s Grocery, in Hong Kong’s Kennedy Town. Famed for their chicken yakitori joint Yardbird, located in Hong Kong’s Central district, Canadian duo Matt Abergel and Lindsay Jang opened this venture in the spring of 2014. But here, guests won’t be sitting down to chicken skewers and cocktails—or sitting at all. Sunday’s Grocery is a “curated convenience store,” selling sandwiches, high-end sake, Japanese whiskey, snacks, beer, and specialty packaged foods. The design—from the storefront to the sandwich-and-beer bento-box-style takeout—is beautifully modern and quirky. Sunday's Grocery 66-68 Catchick Street Kennedy Town, Hong Kong +852 2628 6001
Hunting for the best restaurants while traveling is a given, but I also make a point to seek out little pockets of food-related art and culture when I’m exploring a new place. In fact, some of my favorite food experiences haven’t involved eating at all: One of the most memorable lunches I’ve had was simply observing young Thai monks eat their midday meal, of which they shared several bites with a monastery cat. On your future travels, broaden your definition of food lover a bit, and seek out these food-related art and historical destinations.
