Jackson, Mississippi Food Diaries: Drago’s Seafood Restaurant

Anyplace serving New Orleans style cuisine is a place I need to be. During my first UBER ride in Jackson from the airport, my driver mentioned that a New Orleans seafood restaurant recently opened in Jackson. He also mentioned that he was born and raised in NOLA and moved to Jackson with his wife at…

Jackson, Mississippi Food Diaries: The Feathered Cow

I traveled to Jackson, Mississippi this past week for work training. I have never been there before and after my experience in New Orleans listening to tourists who do not know the best spots, I exclusively took recommendations from the locals only. I was blessed to have a lady in my training drive me to…

Hot and Juicy Crawfish in DC

This is one of my go-to places to eat on any given day.  If there was a location closer to Baltimore, I would definitely visit there more frequently. The fact that they are located in DC makes it a bit more challenging for me with all the traffic, and maybe that is a good thing…

The Hamilton in DC

I will always have a special place in my heart for Alexander Hamilton considering I graduated from Alexander Hamilton Senior High School in Los Angeles. On their website, when I saw their Hamilton logo wearing sunglasses, I figured this was the place for me to try.  Their website states that: The Hamilton was designed to…

The Taste of Three Cities and why I will not be returning

This is my third year attending the Taste of Three Cities food truck event in Baltimore Maryland. In 2014, the event was held in the M&T Bank parking lot with lots of amble parking options available. That event had VIP parking directly next to the event, lots of food trucks, covered seating, easy to get…

I’ll pass on Sneha Indian Cuisine (8 of 50)

I would like to start off giving a disclaimer that I did not start this blog to tear apart restaurants. I love food and the point of this blog is to travel to the best places to share my experiences and to get you inspired to venture there yourself.  However, things do not always work…

Victoria Gastro Pub (7 of 50)

Victoria Gastro Pub is located at 8201 Snowden River Parkway, Columbia, MD 21045. When I moved to Maryland after college, I lived in Columbia, for 2 years in the 21045 zip code. I passed this restaurant all the time but never wanted to stop because I was dating a guy who had an ex-girlfriend of the same name.

Maggie’s Farm (6 of 50)

Maggie’s Farm is located at 4341 Harford Road in Baltimore. They made the best list due to their sometimes Southern, sometimes Asian-tinged menu of comfort foods served at a higher standard.

Venice Ristorante in Downtown Denver!

Venice Ristorante and Wine Bar, located at 1700 Wynkoop Street, was recommended to me by a very good family friend that knows good food. She also recommended the Elway’s Downtown steak restaurant that I should have ventured off to the night before instead of that Fort restaurant experience but it was free so whatever. I…

The Fort Restaurant

I was visiting Denver, Colorado for a business conference and they had an off-site networking reception at The Fort Restaurant.

It is truly unfortunate when you are exposed to the best at an early age.  Your standards are set so high that many restaurants just do not satisfy you like the best can.  I will say this now so it is clear and where my heart lies and what this blog…
