Oystahs for a $1?

I only started enjoying oysters within the recent past (thanks to the “trying to look cool” act I put on in front of my wonderful boyfriend when we first started dating), but now I cannot get enough of them. Living in Boston has opened up MANY opportunities to enjoy them. The one caveat…they’re expensive. BUT…

Lolita – Boston

Has anyone been Lolita Cocina & Tequila Bar in Back Bay? It is to die for – I went last night for my second time. My cousin and I enjoyed great salsas, a guacamole trio, delicious tacos, and OF COURSE some tasty margaritas (I ordered the firing squad!). This place gives you a real experience…

Healing Powers of Pho and Ramen

Alright, I promise I’m not late in the game. I, as have many of you, have known about the healing powers that both authentic Vietnamese Pho and Japanese Ramen have on the human body. Whether you’re super hungover, down in the dumps, have a little (or a huuuuge) case of the sniffles, or if every…

Hash Houses a Go Go

Oh man, oh man…has anyone else been to Hash House? This place has quite a few locations all over the US (Vegas, Orlando, Connecticut, Texas,  etc) and I found myself at the San Diego location this past weekend; the original location might I add 🙂 They coined the term “twisted farm food” because, “We keep…

Texas Dinin’ and Drankin’ (Part 2)

In this post I want to talk about the barbeque I had in Austin, Tx. I mean – the REAL Texas BBQ experience, YUM! The featured picture for this post was my meal. In fact, I’m just going to post it again. We went to Stiles Switch BBQ and what you see on my plate above…

Texas Dinin’ and Drankin’ (Part 1)

I went to Texas for the first time this past weekend and all I have to say is WOW! I had the opportunity to go to San Antonio and Austin, and all that lies in between. In this post I’m going to talk about some fun food and drink spots in San Antonio, Texas. First,…

Oleana, Cambridge

Well everyone my birthday was on Monday – woohoo! Thankfully my lovely boyfriend enjoys eating and trying new places as much as I do. For my birthday dinner he found and took me to Oleana in Cambridge, MA. For those of you who are thinking, “Turkish food? What is that?” it’s really just part of…

Wine Riot, South End Boston

I had a true “Saturday Don’t Matter Day” this weekend. Never heard of it? Neither had I. From my understanding, and experience, it’s when you drink, eat, spend and do whatever you want on a Saturday, because it doesn’t matter. Cool. Starting out at brunch (at The Beehive, of course), and then the browsing around…

SoWa Open Market

Boston’s South End is now one of the nicest, best places to get the real Boston feel. However it wasn’t always like this, and cities remember histories. However, spiraling off of the area’s artistic culture, the South End is known for Boston’s largest open market from April to October every year, and a few seasonal…

Beehive

I mention in my previous post that my parents came to town. It was so fun showing them how their old stomping grounds have changed and hearing how it used to be, but the most fun was bringing them to areas that they had really never been to! For example, the South End. 30 years ago…

Committee

Continuing my restaurant tour of Boston, I went to Committee in Seaport for lunch on Friday with my parents. All I have to say is, WOW! The lunch menu has anything you could want from share-ables (dips galore) and a light course (salads), to more filling dishes like shrimp and risotto or a lamb burger. It was…

Eataly

I’ve been to an Eataly once before, and for an Italian girl it’s better than a candy store! The Boston Eataly store opened in Prudential Center in November 2016. I went for the first time on Saturday afternoon and I was overwhelmed, in the best way. There are many counters and aisles of Italian food….
