Skankynavia: Indian Food at Face (BKK)

I know, how silly is this? Eating Indian food when you're finally in Thailand? It's really only excusable if you had already sampled so many Thai dishes that you need a break from the coconut and lemongrass fireworks. Face is a super trendy "it"...

Skankynavia: Bangin' Cock Delish (Bangkok)

I've fallen in love with the Bangin' Cock, aka Bangkok, the frantic and exotic capital of Thailand. Just returned home to the rather chilly degrees of Copenhagen from a sensual 33˚C, and I severely miss the hot sticky nights, tall palm trees, weird exotic birds,...

Skankynavia: Cocktails at 1105 (CPH)

A bar is a playground for grown-ups. A place where you can meet new playmates, taste the sweet nectar of intoxicating juices, take time off to enjoy life with your closest of pals, and on occasion enjoy the chance of entangling your reproduction organs in...

Skankynavia: Nikolaos Strangas Cakeaway (CPH)

My neighbourhood is changing rapidly these days-- for the better. The whole block used to be really sad, shopping-wise. A nasty old bakery with day-old bread, Christian-sects' offices, and three different Thai "massage" parlours (last year a war broke out between them, and the hookers...

Skankynavia: Wintering in Sicily

It's a blah blah world here in Skankynavia. Bad economy, rising unemployment, snow storms, ice rain, foggy days without sunrise or sunset.  It's even more depressing than watching Depression Cooking With Clara. As previously written, studies have shown that over...

Skankynavia: A Real Man's Wet Lunch

We don't have that many traditions left in our royal kingdom of Denmark, and the European Union is certainly making a big effort trying to convert the entire countries of Europe into one gigantic, bland mess. The EU is just like throwing...

Skankynavia: Danish Winter Wonderland

It's a Snow Wonderland/ Snow Hell in Denmark (and most of Northern Europe) right now-- depending on whom you talk to. Thousands of families have celebrated their Christmas Eve together with strangers in a gym hall on military bunk beds as their further journey was...

Skankynavia: Foodshop No. 55 (CPH)

Last night there was a big snow storm here in Copenhagen. At some point I looked out the window and saw huge lightning flashes across the horizon. Never experienced this combination before, it was beautiful and intense. And so due to all...

Skankynavia: Hot Dog-Off! (CPH)

Being a single gay nerd means the only sausage you're gonna get is down at the hot dog stand. Eating a ho tdog is part of being Danish-- or at least it used to. The fast food army of America and the growing health awareness...

Skankynavia: Sunday Forest Lunch

It's Sunday, and the weather is fantastic. I'm biking through Dyrehaven (north of Copenhagen) to visit some friends, and have a direct view across the treetops with no highways, 7-Elevens or skanky suburban straight people in sight. The air...

Skankynavia: Mushroom Hunt Fail

I love mushrooms. They're strange, beautiful, alien creatures and usually a common motif in my own work. They are such a contrast-- cute, but deadly; delicate, but powerful. I also love eating them although that happens not so commonly. In contrast to...

Skankynavia: Danish Blackberry Pie

If I had a garden, I would go crazy. Everyone thinks having a big garden invokes peace and tranquility in the mind. WRONG! It gives you a constant nagging feeling of stress and frustration. The lawn must be mown, bushes cut, apples...
