Tia Cori’s Tacos (Daytona Beach)

My friends I took a trip out to Daytona Beach some time ago to relax and get away from the day to day. When we arrived in town after a 2 1/2 hour trip we were all hungry and I was a little disappointed when I saw nothing but chains and fast food on InternationalContinue reading “Tia Cori’s Tacos (Daytona Beach)”

La Guaguita – Puerto Rican Cuisine Food Truck

A friend and I went on a ethnic market hunt and just as I started complaining that there are basically no Puerto Rican food spots in Tampa, I turned around and saw a food truck called La Guaguita waving a Puerto Rican flag. My friend and I decided to investigate. Click the photo for aContinue reading “La Guaguita – Puerto Rican Cuisine Food Truck”

Ichiban Sushi (Gainesville)

During visits to Gainesville I am never quite sure where I should eat. About 3 years ago my friends and I discovered Dragonfly Sushi and it quickly became the default sushi spot to visit during trips to the University of Florida. However, my last visit to Dragonfly was less than satisfactory and prompted us toContinue reading “Ichiban Sushi (Gainesville)”

TBO Tweetup @ Fly Bar and Restaurant

I had the pleasure of attending the TBO Tweetup yesterday at Fly Bar and Restaurant. The event was a nice opportunity to meet new people, interact with people active in social media in Tampa Bay, and meet the people who make it happen at TBO, the Tampa Tribune, and WFLA, News Channel 8. The breezeContinue reading “TBO Tweetup @ Fly Bar and Restaurant”

Mema’s Alaskan Tacos

Note: Mema’s Alaskan Tacos has closed down. I have long heard about Mema’s Alaskan Tacos from plenty of food websites. Walking inside it certainly feels like Ybor City, very artsy and unique. They have free wi-fi so I was able to access websites, such as Yelp and Urbanspoon, while I was inside and checkout allContinue reading “Mema’s Alaskan Tacos”

Bangkok Jazz

Bangkok Jazz is a restaurant that I passed on my way to school maybe 600 times or more in the time that I’ve been a university student in Tampa. The Victorian-style building always caught my eye, but before I could read the sign I would already be passing 56th street and speeding away. Bangkok Jazz’sContinue reading “Bangkok Jazz”

The Columbia Cafe

My family and I dined at The Columbia Cafe tonight. It is located next to the Tampa Bay History Center.┬áThe outdoor patio doesn’t seem to be part of the restaurant at first glance. A branch of the famous Columbia chain, this cafe offers are more simplified menu and a beautiful waterfront view of Tampa Bay.┬áChannelsideContinue reading “The Columbia Cafe”

Wood Fired Pizza Wine Bar

Part of my USF Dining Guide Wood Fired Pizza Wine Bar is a unique experience into pizza. When most people think of a pizza joint, they think of fountain soda machines, kids screaming and running around the place, and large families taking a trip out to eat. Wood Fired Pizza is none of those things.Continue reading “Wood Fired Pizza Wine Bar”

BurgerMonger

I am a burger guy. I will be the person to order burgers in the most random locations. We could be dining at a seafood restaurant, classy Spanish restaurant, or even a place with hundreds of items to choose from, such as The Cheesecake Factory, and I will still proceed to order a cheeseburger andContinue reading “BurgerMonger”

The Rack (Hyde Park)

The Rack has long been one of my favorite spots to grab some sushi and chill. The food is consistently good, the bartenders are chill, and there is a crowd there from evening to close. Although they have billiards there, I have never played there. My last visit there was on a Tuesday night. ItContinue reading “The Rack (Hyde Park)”
