Gluten Free

Some yummy food… and then back to Paris!

The food in Beligum is amazing; but, the thing that really stands out is the culture and mindset that sits behind it. I was given one insight that has since changed my entire perspective around food. In NA, we tend… Continue Reading →

Hollywood’s Strip Mall Sushi

There are little strip malls all over Hollywood. And, generally included in these strip malls are an international restaurant or two intermixed amongst fast food, convenience stores, and massage parlors. In some cases the massage parlors are replaced by pop-up… Continue Reading →

Roosevelt Hotel

It’s hard to describe how being in the Roosevelt feels. Dark. Classic. Old world. European. Steeped in history. The kind of place where you would enjoy a brandy and a cigar (though smoking is not allowed). Everyone knows the history…. Continue Reading →

Life on the Road with the Addiction

Given my time and location restraints, this is rapidly becoming a foodie blog. At one point, one of my coworkers remarked rather accurately: on this project all we do is really eat, sleep, consult, and travel on airplanes. There’s no… Continue Reading →

Colombian Food

It’s no surprise that when you live abroad, you are healthier because you eat better food. I could talk about this topic for hours because we try and eat this way in Canada. I say *try* because Canadian’s have come… Continue Reading →

Sweet Auburn Curb Market

“Who lives in this place? These houses are gigantic!” This little voice came from the back seat of our rental car. We’d just passed a massive house with so many gables we couldn’t count them all as we passed. “Eleanor… Continue Reading →

Ristorante Rinuccini

Unfortunately, we didn’t have a lot of luck with food in Ireland. It was difficult to find allergy friendly restaurants outside of Temple Bar in Dublin; so, for most of the journey we were limited to pubs and dodgy looking… Continue Reading →

The Wynn Brunch: Fail

I hate these posts. I really do. The posts were I look back on a great experience / restaurant and have to recant because the second experience was terrible. I’m talking about The Wynn. In 2012, I loved it. I… Continue Reading →

Temple Bar

Just South of the Liffey, North of Dame Street, West of Trinity College, and East of Fishamble Street is Temple Bar. This area has roots that go as far back as Viking times; and, while the rest of the city… Continue Reading →

Donato Enoteca, Redwood City

Donato is a rather odd little restaurant on the main strip of Redwood City. It’s one of those places that looks expensive, feels expensive, is expensive, but is missing something that you can never quite put your finger on. It’s… Continue Reading →
