    Head to OBTown in Oakland for authentic Korean fried chicken

    When you tell a fellow American that you lived abroad in Seoul, South Korea they usually ask a few questions about kimchi, bulgogi, and bibimbap and whether you visited North Korea or ate dog…but most people in the United States are comfortably unaware that some of the best fried chicken in the world is made […]

  • Eating Cubans in San Francisco: Isla Vida

    Eating Cubans in San Francisco: Isla Vida

    I was born and lived in San Francisco until I was 8 years old. During my childhood Caribbean restaurants were far and between. Caribbean culture in general was mostly hidden from public view. Most food media was limited back then as well since it was the 1990s and media did not have the multicultural voices […]

    Full disclosure: I was invited to Jubao Palace Noodle Bar at Seminole Hard Rock & Hotel Tampa for a complimentary meal tasting in exchange for my opinion. These opinions are my own and do not reflect Seminole Hard Rock & Hotel Tampa. Thai Tea is my favorite and probably one of the main reasons why […]

    Sparkman Wharf is now open in the latest Water Street Tampa completion.  I had the pleasure of going to a blogger preview this Tuesday of the new food destination.  After visiting I can say it is more of an outdoor food hall with multiple vendors selling different kinds of food and drinks. 

  • Review: Amy’s Organic Soups Golden Lentil Indian Dal

    I have been shopping for some new soups lately and came across Amy’s Organic Soups Golden Lentil Indian Dal. I found the soup at Sprout’s Farmers Market on-sale for about $2.50 per can. I was really surprised with how great the flavors were in this soup. You can really taste the organic tomatoes, organic carrots, […]

  • Sabor A Cuba – Excellent Cafe con Leche and Cubans

    I visited Miami a few weeks ago and have been craving a Cafe con Leche since then. I asked around and tried some recommendations such as La Segunda and Bodega, but neither of them had that bold coffee that I grew to like during my trip in Miami. During my visit last weekend to Dunedin […]

    Ice & Cream Creamery – delicious scoops in Dunedin

    Yesterday I visited an ice cream shop with my family in Dunedin that was truly phenomenal called Ice & Cream Creamery. They have a few locations on Clearwater Beach and Madeira Beach for those of you hitting the sand this summer. The shop is beautiful on the inside and feels like a blast to the […]

  • Terra Gaucha Brazilian Steakhouse serves excellent meat

    Terra Gaucha Brazilian Steakhouse serves excellent meat

    Full disclosure: I was invited to Terra Gaucha Brazilian Steakhouse for a complimentary tasting in exchange for my opinion. Any opinions displayed here are my own and do not represent Terra Gaucha.  Brazilian Steakhouse concepts have had mixed success in Tampa Bay. Boizao disappeared one day without an explanation. Texas de Brazil has managed to […]
