Fear Of Missing Out (FOMO) Is Real When You’ve Been Missing Out On This- Pollos y Jarras (Peruvian, Restaurants)

I’m kicking myself for how long it took me to make this discovery. I have been a big fan of Peruvian food for a long time. I can’t remember who, when, or how I was introduced to lomo saltado, but I was pretty hooked once I tried it. Lomo saltado is stir-fried steak, onions, and […]

Working down the street from a new Miami favorite could be dangerous…- El Bajareque (Puerto Rican, Wynwood, Gluten-Free)

This summer my work moved offices and while we didn’t move that far (less than a mile) it did change everyone’s lunch routines a little bit. Overall the move was a positive one, but it had been nice in the old office to just walk downstairs and take advantage of all the restaurants in Midtown. It’s […]

Quintessential Miami bar and experience with a dollop of history- Ball & Chain (Bar, Little Havana)

Over the Thanksgiving weekend one of my best friends was back home in Miami from New York City. We had talked for a few days about grabbing drinks Friday night with his wife and her family. Friday afternoon he told me we were going to Ball & Chain on Calle Ocho. That took me a bit […]

Arepas! Latin-fusion twist on a Miami favorite in Portland- Teote (SE Portland, Arepas)

One of my last nights in Portland I went to dinner with my mom and I decided we’d check out Teote in SE Portland. Teote describes itself as a Latin American street food experience celebrating gluten-free arepas. It seemed like a solid choice because my mom also is gluten-free, plus she had never had arepas before. […]
