Food Adventures #002

This past week was a much slower week in food adventures. Most of what I ate was either home-cooked or some form of fast food (in fact I have been eating way too much fast food…such a waste of money and not to mention super bad for you). However, I did make a few stopsContinue reading “Food Adventures #002”

Benihana

This past weekend was my step-father’s 50th birthday. To celebrate we went to our timeshare in Orlando and had dinner at the Benihana on International Drive. I used to eat at Benihana in San Francisco’s Japantown all the time as a kid with my father, so I was excited to go to this Benihana andContinue reading “Benihana”

Foodspotting

I was looking around at foodie websites on delicious the other day and came across Foodspotting. It’s a website where you can e-mail or upload pictures of food you eat or just see and then people can vote on the food depending on if they want the food, or have eating the food before (nom).Continue reading “Foodspotting”

I’m happy with the results. WordPress has a great interface both in the editor and the actual presentation of itself. I hopeContinue reading “Carlos Eats!”

Jasmine Thai (North Dale Mabry)

The last time I went to Jasmine Thai was a few years back for a high school friends birthday party. I remember during that visit I was feeling really sick and the Pad Thai at Jasmine Thai made me instantly feel better. Considering how I was feeling earlier that day it truly was a miracle.Continue reading “Jasmine Thai (North Dale Mabry)”

P.F. Chang’s China Bistro

Over the weekend I went to P.F. Chang’s with the family for my Mom and Sister’s birthday dinner. We had reservations, but the place was crazy packed and it still took about thirty minutes to get our table, so keep that in mind when making reservations at this restaurant. The first thing I tried wasContinue reading “P.F. Chang’s China Bistro”

West Tampa Sandwich Shop: A Taste of Cuba

Today on an adventure to try some pupusas on Martin Luther King, my sister and I found ourselves outside an establishment that is closed on Thursdays. We ended up over at the West Tampa Sandwich Shop on Armenia Avenue, a favorite place to grab a meal for her. Apparently my parents used to bring us food fromContinue reading “West Tampa Sandwich Shop: A Taste of Cuba”

Tokyo Sushi: USF Japanese Festival After-Party

Yesterday I dined with some friends at Tokyo Sushi, a USF-area sushi restaurant located by the intersection of Fowler Avenue and 56th Street. It is a favorite of many good friends of mine and very convenient for college students and local employees, providing some good deals with a lunch special and early bird special (starts atContinue reading “Tokyo Sushi: USF Japanese Festival After-Party”
