Kayem Artisan Sausages Review and Recipe Ideas

Kayem Artisan Sausages Review and Recipe Ideas

A little while ago, a representative for Kayem contacted me and asked if I would like to sample some of their new line of Artisan Sausages that I could review. I’m not one to pass up free things, so of course I agreed and shortly after I received an incredibly generous package from Kayem. I thought … Continue reading

Chomp Kitchen and Drinks – Warren, RI

Chomp Kitchen and Drinks – Warren, RI

Chomp is truly a hidden gem nestled on the edge of Warren, RI. I only noticed it while driving by one day because the restaurant seemed to pop up out of nowhere like an oasis. It’s a little out of place in a woodsy neighborhood, but does not seem to be lacking in a strong … Continue reading

Wahlburgers Review – Hingham, MA

Wahlburgers Review – Hingham, MA

Massachusetts’ celebrity family, the Wahlbergs, have taken over Hingham within the past few years. Originally, they opened a fine dining restaurant called, “Alma Nove,” in the Hingham Shipyard. Shortly after that, they opened a burger joint right across the street, aptly named Wahlburgers. I’ve had the opportunity to eat at both restaurants and both of … Continue reading

Ted’s Montana Grill Review – Cranston, RI

Ted’s Montana Grill Review – Cranston, RI

My brother’s 30th birthday celebration occurred this past weekend and I wanted to take him to a mid-level steakhouse for dinner. Due to the fact that it was also Mother’s Day weekend, I couldn’t find any local steakhouses that could accommodate a large party (about 10 people) on a Saturday night. The only place that … Continue reading

Gennaro’s Eatery Review – Quincy, MA

Gennaro’s Eatery Review – Quincy, MA

I’ve passed by Gennaro’s Eatery more times than I can count. I always thought to myself that I’d like to try their food, but nothing about the outside of their restaurant impressed an urgent need to do so even though their slogan is “Family Dining With Flair.” I read some reviews and they seemed on … Continue reading

Oishii – Sushi Review – Boston, MA

Oishii – Sushi Review – Boston, MA

When searching for the best sushi around Boston, three names kept popping up: O Ya, Oishii, and Oga’s (in Natick). After watching a wonderful documentary called, Jiro Dreams of Sushi, about the world’s greatest sushi chef, I became obsessed with trying truly high quality sushi. Unfortunately, such sushi is costly and far more expensive than … Continue reading

A Visual Food Tour of Khartoum, Sudan

A Visual Food Tour of Khartoum, Sudan

This post is long overdue, but I wanted to make sure that I captured my trip to Khartoum, Sudan in a way that would do it justice. There is a lot that I’ve left out considering that I took over 400 pictures while there. That’s more impressive than you might think considering that it’s “illegal” … Continue reading

The Olive Tap Providence – Review

The Olive Tap Providence – Review

While walking through Wayland Square in Providence, RI, I stumbled upon a store called, “The Olive Tap,” but it wasn’t there the last time I was in Wayland Square, so it surprised me at how fast it must have been set up. Out of the corner of my eye, I spotted rows of shiny silver … Continue reading

A Visual Food Tour of Salem, MA

A Visual Food Tour of Salem, MA

As an anniversary present, my girlfriend gifted me a trip to historic Salem, MA and a one night stay in the Hawthorne Hotel. We spent less than 24 hours there, but we saw a lot of what Salem has to offer on the off-season (i.e. not Halloween). A few of the highlights included seeing a … Continue reading

Wayland Square Diner Review – Providence, RI

Wayland Square Diner Review – Providence, RI

Great breakfasts are hard to find, which is strange when you consider that most people don’t set the bar very high for what they’re looking for in a breakfast. Most of us that go out for breakfast just want something hot that isn’t too greasy or soggy if it’s savory or something that isn’t too … Continue reading

A Visual Food Tour of Brooklyn, NY

A Visual Food Tour of Brooklyn, NY

A couple of months ago, I attended a wedding in Brooklyn, New York. Coincidentally, this was the same weekend that hurricane Sandy hit the east coast, but we managed to leave NY before it got really bad. That little nugget of information is only tangentially related and didn’t really affect my stay, but I do … Continue reading

Gracie’s Restaurant Review – Providence, RI

Gracie’s Restaurant Review – Providence, RI

Just in case you don’t read this very detailed review, let me sum it up by saying that Gracie’s is [was] the best restaurant in Providence. I don’t want to hear about Atwells Ave. or Federal Hill. Gracie’s is [was] the reigning champ as far as I’m concerned. I know thems are fightin’ words, but I’m not … Continue reading

Los Andes Review – Providence, RI

Los Andes Review – Providence, RI

Back in high school, a Vietnamese friend introduced me to a Colombian restaurant in Central Falls, RI where he grew up called, El Paisa (the irony here is that I have a Colombian friend from Central Falls as well, but he didn’t bring up the restaurant). This quickly became one of our favorite places to … Continue reading
