Midnight smak 

So J.V.C. gently jibes me about posting from Armenia and says he has nothing to offer from his trip to Manila, and then he produces thoughts on SpamJam and Jollibee. Ah yes, the days of Kiev with Kentucky Beirut Chicken and Kitaiskiy Smak. At the latter, you brought your own containers for takeout. I had to learn how to tell the taxi "wait here" while I fetched dinner.

Best I saw in Armenia this trip? "Breeze", with neon sign advertising "Thai seafood European". We had no idea there was striptease inside. No wonder everyone looked at us sitting on the patio.

UPDATE: Tyler Cowen has a more serious but still fun look at how to eat while travelling.
