Spiral-cut fried whole potato: Korean junk-food

tornadopotato.jpg
Tornado Potatoes — new street-food from South Korea. It’s a spiral-cut potato, deep fried and dusted with tangy cheezy powder. Yes, it’s unhealthy, but the Koreans have a long way to go if they’re going to bridge the US-Korean junk-food gap — hello, deep-fried Coca-Cola! Get that potato some whipped mayo and maybe some rat-poison (or plutonium) and we’ll be in business. Link (via Neatorama)via: http://boingboing.net/ 

Metal Shutter Houses

Adding to an already impressive couple of blocks in West Chelsea, Manhattan, is Shigeru Ban’s new design for The Metal Shutter Houses. That’s the name for a condo with nine duplex apartments with jaw-dropping exterior features. Simply amazing, and surely to rate high on thetwo-dozen list, whenever we get around to updating it with Nouvel’s second apartment building, Herzog & DeMeuron’s 40 Bond Street, and the like.
