A family-run restaurant in Bangkok…

A family-run restaurant in Bangkok has had a the same giant pot of soup simmering for 45 years. When it runs low, they top it off. It’s a beef noodle soup called neua tuna. It simmers in a giant pot. Fresh meat like raw sliced beef, tripe and other organs is added daily. But any broth leftover is preserved at the end of each day and used in the next day’s soup. It’s an ancient cooking method that gives the soup a unique flavor and aroma.

Sausage of the North

When British sausage-maker Heck announced that it was going to construct a gigantic sausage statue as tall as Big Ben alongside the A1(M) motorway in England, most people assumed they were joking. Especially since they made the announcement on the day before April Fool’s Day. But it turns out, they weren’t joking and appear to be proceeding with plans to build the “Sausage of the North.”
