Horecatrends | Tips for Culinary videos worth watching – week 18


YouTube has been a source of inspiration for spotting trends the past few years. Every day, thousands of movies are uploaded with new and interesting content. We too sometimes use videos as a source of inspiration to write about. With this week again a selection of 3 videos which our colleague Micha Luksenburg thinks are worth watching.

This week a video about the food that’s being served at Korean game cafés.

Have you ever tasted woodworms? Well, they seem to be considered ‘the new oysters’ in the Philippines! And a video about a very popular ‘Japanese style sandwich’ that is being served in Los Angeles. Instagrammable!

Recently I wrote a blog about a Dutch e-sport café to point out that gaming has a lot of social aspects to it (unfortunately only written in Dutch). In this e-sport café, simple dishes and drink can be ordered. In Korea there are already many e-sport cafés and some of these cafés take their F&B to a higher level. In this video of Eater they show how gamers can order  homemade traditional Korean food via their computer. Thus less prepackaged fast food.

One of their delicacies is a special kind of woodworm for example! I haven’t even seen a woodworm yet but apparently these taste much like oysters only a little bit sweeter. Also real bird nests are being processed in Filipino dishes…

These Japanese style sandwiches are irresistible!

A lunchroom that primarily focuses on Japanese style sandwiches, recently opened in Los Angeles. The concept is easy but catchy. For example, the entrepreneurs had to hire 8 extra people in the first week to make sure they could handle the demand. The menu is small but Instagram worthy and tastes even better than it looks…
