Khaophums Fine Thai Restaurant

On this July 4th long weekend, on our trip from Jersey City to Portsmouth, this was our first meal stop, not counting the ice cream we had at a McDonald’s in a service area enroute. The food was OK. The service was OK.  We ordered the ...

Southern Black-eyed Pea Salad (or Salsa)

The South has a tradition that goes back to the Civil War and says black-eyed peas bring good luck.  Specifically, they bring good luck if they’re eaten on New Year’s Day.  Now I realize I’m… Continue reading → The ...

Angelino Ai Fiori

We’re now on day 4 and a proper meal hasn’t been had since morning. We’ve gone to the colosseum and the baby has slept. So we think we’d be able to do the Roman Forum too, while he’s asleep and then grab a bite. But ...

Ristorante Belforte

I believe I must’ve bookmarked this place for the views.  I didn’t recollect.  All of Vernazza, at least by the waters, looked touristy.  So I decided to try this place.  Even if it meant just whiling time, waiting for restaurant to ...

Nessun Dorma

I’d looked this place up before going.  And while sitting there wasn’t particularly necessary to get great views, we stopped anyway as we were hungry. The place is more of a drink place, not particularly an eat place.  Especially not ...

Healthy Carrot Cake Smoothie

It's like carrot cake in liquid form. But way less sweet. Velvety-smooth, tastes rich and indulgent, but actually really ridiculously healthy. The post Healthy Carrot Cake Smoothie appeared first on Confessions of a Chocoholic.

Jaiya Thai UES

This was a first of its kind weekend. First time we made a day especially about the kid. Not that we don’t bring him out, but it’ll usually be our kind of place too. Plus an importance on a meal. I guess that’ll never go away, as ...

La Taberna

The second lunch stop and the third meal stop for the day. Just steps away from our first lunch stop that day, this place was busier than the first. And it looked more inviting too. So allowing baby K to be a baby, run and play, we preferred to just ...

Gingersnap’s Organic

Place look and feel – Cafe-esque. Contempoary. Food taste – Good. Food price – Out of the park. The place is OK to try for a work day or work evening meal. We went there for a Sunday lunch/ brunch. Knew what I was getting into, but ...

12 Chairs Cafe

It turned out to be just the kind of place I was in a mood for that day. Good food. Great jachnun, the first time I had it. Liken it to a lachcha paratha, only slightly sweetened or a puff pastry, only softer and not crispy.  I absolutely loved ...

Nai Tapas Bar

Last Wednesday, I was invited for a press dinner. This, at a great eclectic tapas place with some molecular gastronomy thrown in.  And a nice wine selection to flow with the tapas, with only a beer at the beginning. The one thing I’ll ...

Curried Roasted Sweet Potato Soup with Tarragon

I love creamy soups.  Their creamy texture and vibrant flavors all spell “comfort” to me. This deliciously rich and seductively silky soup showcases the sweet potato.  An ancient tuber, sweet potatoes have been radiocarbon-dated in ...

Satori Cafe

This inviting vegetarian place in Malmö, Sweden was one of the more memorable meals I had during my Scandinavian visit earlier this May. I usually don’t plan to spend a lot of time on lunches if I’m travelling – breakfast and ...
