Lucky Peach

This quarterly might have some serious foodie star power behind it, with Momofuku legend David Chang as a co-founder, but once you pick up a copy, it’ll be the last thing on your mind. Each issue is dedicated to a certain theme, and the stories are so in-depth, vivid and well-written – and peppered with impactful, unexpected visuals – that by the time you’re done devouring the magazine, you’re guaranteed to be an expert on the topic … be it ramen (like the first issue) or even Chinatown and its myriad of culinary offerings.
