You Can’t Hide an Elephant in an Omelet: Omelet Reviews

What a neat concept this zine offers: essays and stories about omelettes and cuisine from around the world. This particular issue offers experiences from Thailand, Laos, and Cambodia. Part res­taurant review, part tour guide; this zine offers pure entertainment in eloquent language that can be enjoyed by just about everyone.

Written like a memoir (the good kind), the zine offers a glimpse into foreign food production, consumption and a healthy dose of social interaction and culture shock as well. It’s an objective look at travel and all it entails, offering tips and advice on how to get by. It also gives descriptions of local cuisine that can either repulse you or attract you, so reading it while hungry is a bad idea.

This zine is well worth the money. Rich with well-worded descriptions and beautiful photos, this zine will satisfy the reader who has either trav­el-curiosity or no idea what to make for dinner (which, of course, must be omelettes). (Tara Blackmore)
