I’d been hearing about Morgan’s for awhile now, especially as a good brunch spot, and I’ve driven by it often with all the time I spend in Midtown and since I lived so close. Really no excuse why I haven’t checked it out besides the fact that I’ve terribly skirted my Portland-raised brunch responsibilities. I’ve […]Read More 100th Post!: The Way Brunch Is Supposed To Be- Morgan’s (Midtown/Wynwood, New American)
I’ve had a lot of adventures (mostly food-related) in the last couple days since I have a lot of friends moving out of Miami and saying goodbye has usually revolved around eating! I myself have been very busy moving apartments just within Miami but also getting ready for a trip home to Portland and working […]Read More Big Menu, Big Servings- Big Pink (South Beach, American)
This will be the second summer I’m spending in Philadelphia for work and couldn’t be more excited for my work with students and teachers in Philadelphia, seeing old friends, and spending time in the city that I really came to love! Last summer I think I did a pretty good job of experiencing the city, […]Read More Bucket List for Philly This Summer!
This cafe is now closed, however there is a new place called Ironside Pizza, which is in the same space. It not only has gluten-free pizza, but I really like what they have done with the space! Today I was reading Miami.com (scanning the Restaurants and See & Do sections like I usually do) and […]Read More CLOSED: Simple and Fresh Food in a Hidden Artist Village- Iron Side Cafe (Upper Eastside)
Yesterday after seeing some of my first students graduate from high school (!!) I went with some friends/co-workers to a quick lunch at Siam Rice on Biscayne. I really enjoyed my Pad See Ew but didn’t take any pics because I wasn’t planning on doing a review. Later however I realized I left my credit […]Read More Go-To Thai/Sushi on Biscayne-Siam Rice (Upper Eastside/Biscayne Corridor)
On Sunday I continued the revival of my Portland brunch tradition (after last Sunday at Villa Mayfair) and went just across the street to City Hall the Restaurant. Already a big fan from having lunch and dinner here (review here), but I had been wanting to try their brunch out for awhile. Seems a lot […]Read More CLOSED: Brunch at City Hall (Omni/Midtown, American Bistro)
I have a number of friends who are completing their two years in Teach For America and are moving elsewhere to teach, go to grad school, or do other jobs. I’ve been asking people what are some of their favorite spots that they’ve discovered over the last two years/places they’ll miss the most. One that […]Read More Authentic, Line-Out-The-Door Nicaraguan Food- Pinolandia (Little Havana)
My grandfather was one of the most important people in my life and I know is a huge influence/reason for the person I am today. I am really attached to the many things I did with him (to name a few: horse racing, playing cards/Monopoly, traveling, always seeking to learn new things). One thing I […]Read More Adrienne Arsht Center For the Performing Arts/The Lion King!
In a little bit over a week I will be touching down in Portland for almost a week of enjoying the city I love so much. I’ll also spend two days down in Eugene for my brother’s college graduation (GO DUCKS!). I cannot wait! The trip will give be a great time to catch up […]Read More Portland Trip Bucket List!
The very large area north of downtown that includes Midtown, Wynwood, Design District, and the Biscayne Corridor have tons of culinary gems to try and discover. One place I had heard a lot about was Gigi, which is on Miami Ave basically where Midtown, Wynwood, and the Design District meet. What I heard the most […]Read More Asian-Fusion Plates of Flavor- Gigi Miami (Midtown, Asian Fusion)
