This stretch of ramen restaurants on the basement floor of Tokyo station is awesome. Designed and built to highlight the best of Tokyo’s vast ramen scene, you could come here many times and eat something new and delicious every time. Offering everything from tsukemen (ramen noodles served with a dipping sauce) to hearty Sapporo-style ramen, each restaurant on ramen street is an outpost of a revered ramen joint somewhere else in the city, and was specially invited into this elite group.Read More
Like most art fairs in the world some of the best things happen outside of the main fair Zona Maco. For me I love to use those days surrounding the main weekend enjoying the multitude of events that happen in parallel spaces. During Maco there is also an emerging fair called Material Art Fair which tends to focus on younger and emerging artists. It's a good one for discovering work artists that you may not know.
Here are a few places I would check out during Maco week!
Situated right in the heart of Centro Historico Casa Vecina is a really amazing place to find work that most likely will not be in art fairs. It focuses on a diverse range of contemporary work with focus on the city and community building. They have a little exhibition space that I've seen some of the most interesting work like an exhibition about the neighborhood that intricately creates and decorates monster trucks with a white mud.
This collective space is pretty incredible. It holds a lot of different kinds of events from music shows, to bike repair, to exhibitions, to fashion shows. Located right next la Merced market the crew that runs this space is a sweet and eclectic group of artists, designers, and architects committed to their neighborhood and their city. Check their website to make sure something is happening before heading over.
This space is a residency/exhibition/research center in San Rafael. It is housed in this incredible old mansion from the turn of the century. This is a good place to see work by local and international artists who generally tend to be younger and are taking pretty interesting creative risks.
Spending an incredible week here in one of my favorite cities reminds me of what gems are hidden away here. Chiquitito is one of these. Enjoy this interview I did with them about how they are redefining coffee culture.Read More
I am on a long-term hunt for the best ceviche and would love your suggestions. Where do you go? What do you look for in a good ceviche?
De mar a mar
This relatively new restaurant in Juarez has fancy ceviches. They have a few kinds, the ceviche mar a mar is the best one. I love the blue corn tostadas and the roasted habanero salsa. They've go great cocktails, really fresh fish. This is a good place to enjoy a nice lunch out.

I like to come here on Sunday with the rest of the city and sit around and eat, walk a little maybe, drink a beer, and eat some more. The ceviche stand here is in the middle of the market and it does a brisk business. Sit at the counter, order up. And consider yourself lucky.
El Camello Jr
This is my standby meal in Tulum. Run by a fishermans cooperative the mounds of ceviche that come out of that kitchen are a wonder! This is my kind of restaurant. It's always busy, there is an amazing under the sea mural, next door is a small fish shop full of coolers doing a brisk business. When I share I order a medium and I have never been able to polish off a large.

Visit Tokyo, an ultra-modern wonder punctuated by tradition. This fascinating city is worthy of years of exploring. In this book begin to know the culture and mysteries housed in high-reaching skyscrapers and the tiny businesses run of traditional houses next door to them. SatoriRead More
