A Food Design Service Review on the Lego cafe called Get and Show Cafe, in Seoul, South Korea. Disappointing! Why didn’t they just let me play with lego? I had to buy the lego in order to play with them! I don’t get it. Here we talk a little about this aspect and what a Food Service (restaurant or cafe for example) can do to create customer engagement.
Oh boy… Four days in Seoul and I’ve eaten enough weird food for a year! These are the 6 strangest beers you’ll ever drink… all found in Seoul, South Korea.
And because Food Design is the way I see the world, you’ll also find a pinch of Design Theory, in particular I’ll discuss why you too – if you own a restaurant or pub – should include weird beers in your menu: it’s called the MAYA Design Principle.
While in South Korea I discovered Ondol, the ingenious heating+cooking system, which is 3000 years old! One fire is used to heat the entire house (the hot air and smoke passes underneath the floor and warms it up) AND, since it is there, it also becomes the cooking fire in the kitchen.
I found this a very good example of sustainable Food System Design. Let me know what you think in my Facebook Page!
Have you ever noticed how many products there are in the Design For Food sub-discipline or Food Design, that are designed to do one thing only? I call these one function objects and this video explains how I look at them.
