• Carlos Eats Pizza Tour Stop 3: New York, New York Pizza

    Hearing from many that New York, New York Pizza in Ybor City has some of the best pizza in town we decided we would give it a shot after a night at Gameworks. We arrived into the place, perhaps not the nicest looking restaurant…but plenty of customers. We found a booth and were quickly waited on. […]

  • That’s Amore

    Tonight my parents took me out to That’s Amore, an Italian restaurant on Harbour Island where a singer they used to follow at the Jazz club “The Fox” was spotted by a friend singing. Being the food critic guy that I am, I started researching the place before I got there and found many negative […]

  • Carlos Eats Pizza Tour Stop 2: Pomodoro Pizza

    My second pizza tour brought me to Pomodoro Pizza. A small pizza place recommended by some friends. A simple setup. A few tables, a soda machine, and the pizza chefs counter and kitchen are in visible view. While dining in I saw a number of people come in and get pizzas to-go, must be pretty […]

  • Sam Oh Jung

    After spending a day at Siesta Keys Beach I found myself wanting some Korean food. Unfortunately it was already late by the time we were leaving and traveling back to Tampa to a Korean restaurant there would take too long. Some searching online helped us find Sam Oh Jung in Bradenton (thanks to Coty S. […]

  • Cuenelli’s Peruvian Style Rotisserie Chicken

    This past weekend my friend and I were hungry and trying to think of a place to have dinner at. We wanted a place that had some good-quality food, affordable prices, and something almost home-cooked. We are some picky eaters, but after some thinking I finally thought of a spot we could eat at: Cuenelli’s […]

  • Jasmine Thai (Brandon)

    Jasmine Thai in Brandon is a totally different experience from Jasmine Thai on Dale Mabry. I don’t think the places even have the same owner because the Brandon location has its own website. The Brandon location happens to be one of my favorite Thai places in town. Service is always prompt and food has always […]

  • National S’mores Day

    To celebrate National S’mores Day (every year on August 10th), my nephew and I made chocolate s’mores. Here are the pictures from our adventure: Making the S’Mores. After they came out of the oven. A very happy nephew of mine. We thought the s’more made a funny face shape. Special thanks to Foodimentary for notifying […]
