Wedding Season is Upon Us

Have any of you been to the Omni Bedford Springs Resort? Because it was my first time last weekend for a wedding and all I can say is WOW! I mean, that’s to be expected with Omni properties. We had a great time with a bloody mary bar and the best steak dinner (well my…

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,…

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…

Agora DC Brunch

If you’re ever in DC, you have to brunch. There are so many places to go…maybe I’ll have to post a list of some great spots sometime soon…but in the meantime, let me tell you about the great brunch I had this weekend! Agora, a Turkish restaurant in the DuPont Circle neighborhood of DC, offers…

Carb Queen (Part 1)

I am a self-proclaimed Carb Queen. Give me some pasta, some bread, a pretzel, or anything that is even remotely filled with carbohydrates…and I will devour it. Granted, I have to admit that some carbs are better than others and as a Carb Queen I believe I have the royalties to rank them appropriately. I’ve…

Eating Traditional

In my last post I talked about the Icelandic hot dog but in this post I wanted to touch on a couple more adventurous traditional Icelandic eats. For starters there is the fermented shark, called Hákarl, which I didn’t actually try…(it’s supposed to taste terrible) but my friend tried it and confirmed the less-than-appetizing-taste. The…

Iceland’s Hot Dog

I’m not particularly a hot dog fan. I know, I know, people think I’m crazy. When I was preparing for my trip to Iceland I looked at a lot of links about what to eat (obviously). And while there were weird items (fermented shark, fin whale, and puffin) I could not get over how often…
