Amazon Bar

Popup shops and restaurants are a pretty big business here in Japan, particularly in Tokyo. I’ve seen news of them from time to time, but one in particular caught my attention: Amazon. They created their own bar in the G735 Gallery in the fancy Ginza district of Tokyo. It’s only there from October 20th through […]

Seoul Craft Beers

While in Seoul, I had a small chance to partake in some local beers, brewed there right in the heart of the metropolis. I was not able to visit an extensive number of breweries or pubs due to time and money constraints, but the ones I was fortunate enough to visit offered a diverse offering […]

Curious, we tucked out heads inside and saw that it was full of powders, potions, and concoctions from the history of pharmacology. This small, unassuming storefront proved to be a treasure […]

Mongolian Beers

With its penchant for vodka, it’s easy to sometimes overlook the selection of beers that Mongolia has to offer.
