Wikileaks has a tasty cable from Venezuela. The Atlantic has the cable about Arepera Socialista, a government-owned restaurant opened by Hugo Chavez a year ago. The food's cheap and tasty, and the workers and diners happy.

In Chicago, food trucks are on the lam. The Wall Street Journal covers the city's harsh food truck laws that leave vendors like Flirty Cupcakes to drive around the city, pulling over when customers flag them down on the road, instead of parking and risking a fine.

Does Flirty Cupcakes have any masculine cupcakes? Bloomberg Businessweek knows where to find a manly wee cake. David Arrick started Butch Bakery after turning 40, losing his job and house, and becoming enraged when seeing lines at girly cupcake shops. What makes a cupcake masculine? Booze.

The robots are here, and they're going to replace the humans. Zagat reports that a restaurant in China is using a robot server and host. Turns out machines are better at picking tea leaves than humans, too. Kenya's Daily Planet discusses the ramifications of mechanization.
