The Guildwars 2 story takes place in the Asian inspired Cantha, so I was really craving some Chinese food again! With noodles and stir fry being referenced everywhere in the game, I really wanted to make Eggplant stir fry again. Just like I did at a cooking class when I was in China. Eggplant stir fry is a Chinese famous dish, usually made with a local Sechuan variant of Eggplant, called Yuxiang. While in game you can buy the eggplants in bulk at Mount Maelstrom, in real life, any eggplants will do.
I was lucky enough to visit the newly opened Molly’s Arena. A Japanese-style arcade where you can sit down and have ramen and Mochi ice cream while playing the most epic arcade games. And even better, fly loops in an air plane in VR. So if you need some more convincing to drop by this Arcade, let me tell you about why you need to go there ASAP.
Update! Since the 14th of January, Molly’s Arena is open again! Support the local gaming scene and go visit when you can!

The tasty appetizer that is served during our geeky food fest is called ‘Harry Potter Pumpkin pasties’. Here is some Harry Potter knowledge for you.

Night’s Watch Hot Mulled Wine
In this series we are going to put together the ultimate Christmas dinner. Why? So you can dine in style of course. But before we start with some geeky recipes for food we are going to talk about what to drink. In this article specifically we want to underline the importance of a good glass of wine.
