Eat Wiener Schnitzel in Vienna, Austria

I only had five waking hours to spend in Vienna, that is not a lot of time to explore Austria’s capital and largest city. No worries. I didn’t need a lot of time to do one thing on my Vienna bucket list: Eat Wiener Schnitzel. Wiener schnitzel is the breaded, deep-fried boneless veal dish that is a Viennese specialty. Did I mention deep-fried? After much research, […]

Drink in a Shinjuku Golden Gai Bar in Tokyo

I am typically a wine lounge kind of lady. Take me to a swanky place with Lorde playing in the background, cushioned couch seating and a large selection of red wine to choose from and I will be as happy as a monkey with a peanut machine. Drinking in a Shinjuku Golden Gai bar in Tokyo was nothing like that, in fact […]

Experience Rose. Rabbit. Lie. in Las Vegas

Rose. Rabbit. Lie. Huh? Even the mention of these three little words to the locals in Las Vegas gave a facial response of a familiar, yet quizzical look. The name had been on the tips of everyone’s tongues in Sin City, but not one person had a valid explanation for exactly what it was. I […]

Eat a Lampredotto Sandwich in Florence, Italy

In general, I wouldn’t go out of my way searching for a sandwich filled with the cooked stomach of a cow. Who am I kidding? I totally would. So, hunting for a Panino con Lampredotto in Florence was no different than any other weird food I had pursued in the past. A Lampredotto sandwich is a Florentine tradition, Tuscan street food at its […]

Eat the California State Bird in San Francisco

Eating the California State bird? Isn’t that illegal? You’re not even allowed to pick the state’s poppy flower, are you? Technically, neither action is against the law, but there is something so wrong about consuming your home state bird. Yet, at San Francisco’s State Bird Provisions, there is also something so deliciously right. There are only a few states in America […]

Make (& Eat) Pan Con Tomate in Spain

I don’t like raw tomatoes. Really. I may be the only Italian restaurateur who will actually pick out every slice of raw tomato in my antipasto or caprese salad. How dare you put those in there letting them infect the rest of the edible goodies. But, Spanish Pan Con Tomate is the exception to the rule. There is always an exception, […]

Indulge in Fried Frog Legs & Alligator in Louisiana

It was a slow night at Tunk’s Oyster Bar. Today was the first day of squirrel season in Louisiana, evidently a big event in this part of Alexandria. Many local folks were probably at home cleaning their catch and making squirrel stew, instead of dining out. Unfortunately, squirrel is not served in restaurants, so eating that […]

Eat at a Themed Restaurant in Tokyo

Tokyo, Japan is exploding with quirky themed restaurants. Understatement. You can watch a sexy robot show while eating a bento box or be served by trained ninjas or dine in a European church replica. And though all of those sounded equally as bizarre, I opted for the Alcatraz ER, a medical prison themed restaurant. Who doesn’t want to eat […]

Eat at the New York Restaurant that Created Buffalo Wings

While in Toronto I went to a place that had 180 different types of chicken wings. Even though the sweet chili with ranch version there was quite tasty, the vast selection was a bit of an overkill. Especially since, as a former Buffalonian, I knew that there are only three types of Buffalo wings; mild, medium or […]

Eat Dessert First at Hong Kong’s Dessert Kitchen

In a world where I dedicate my life to achieving my dreams, eating dessert before dinner makes total sense. It is a dream. Besides, I am an adult, most of the time, and can make my own decisions about what I ingest, even if it is a entire meal dedicated to sugar. Luckily, dessert always comes first at Hong […]
