Infographics simplify classic city food


Food is a universal language. Which is just as well, as we have very little idea as to the finer details of these infographics from Barcelona-based design studio L’esstudi.

But we catch their drift. It's the drift we love.

The staple foods of five cities - London, New York, Donosti (which Google tells us is in northern Spain), Naples and Tokyo - have been reduced and simplified into these colourful pallet moisteners. Each ingredient of London's sandwiches, New York's burgers and Tokyo's sushi have been assigned their own key to allow for easy identification.

A feast for the eyes, we're now popping out for a little of all of it.
