Carlos Eats 2.0: Expansion to Seoul, South Korea

As I was updating my food blog last Monday in Miami I smelt a peculiar burning smell in my hotel room. I began to wonder if it was the Colombian BBQ I had earlier for dinner that night, but after almost an hour of sniffing for smoke I couldn’t find the source. Suddenly as IContinue reading “Carlos Eats 2.0: Expansion to Seoul, South Korea”

Pagelli’s Italiano (Wesley Chapel)

My parents have dined at Pagelli’s Italiano in the Wiregrass Mall for quite some time and mentioned to me I had to try the Tiramisu there.

Ploy Thai (Brandon)

Ploy Thai was one of the first Thai restaurants I fell in love with when I first moved to the Brandon area back in 2005. The inside is decorated as lavishly as any other Thai restaurant, but there is something about the quality of the food and service that I enjoy after every visit.

I have dined at One Family Korean Restaurant (known as Pine Tree Karaoke Cafe until 2010) for about 3 years now. Regarded by many as the best Korean restaurant in Tampa Bay and after searching high and low myself, I have to agree. One Family offers reasonable prices for dishes in comparison to the KoreanContinue reading “One Family Korean Restaurant”

One of the most exciting parts of visiting Universal Studios earlier this year was visitingContinue reading “Universal Studios Orlando: Wizarding World of Harry Potter – Three Broomsticks restaurant”
