Breathless Cabo San Lucas Resort

I’ve been on a little hiatus in Cabo San Lucas! My hubby, “The Chef”, and I’s honeymoon in April to the Dominican Republic was a little crazy since I was bound to a wheelchair and forbidden to drink alcohol due to the medications that I was taking for a foot injury….

Johnny Sánchez (Warehouse District, New Orleans, LA)

Johnny Sánchez is a Chef John Besh and Chef Aaron Sánchez venture for authentic Mexican food. I’ve been a couple times and my most recent dinner was mainly small plates. I ordered the Camida Bay oysters. Those are one of my faves! I loved the mignonette that came already on…

Part & Parcel (SoMa, New Orleans, Louisiana)

Another great addition to the up and coming South Market district (SoMa) area where Blaze, Company Burger, and a few other local favorites reside, popped up the latest and greatest Part & Parcel. Part & Parcel is a Root Restaurant Project that sells house-made charcuterie, sandwiches, and foods, but on another level. This…

Honest Biscuits (Pike Place Farmer’s Market, Seattle, WA)

After exploring Pike Place Market for some breakfast, Honest Biscuits seemed really appealing! I can always go for a simple biscuit with white gravy! The area is hidden away in a little corner at Pike Place but there’s plenty of places downstairs to sit and enjoy your biscuit since the…

Taylor Shellfish Oyster Bar (Capitol Hill, Seattle, WA)

My friends and I stopped by Taylor Shellfish Oyster Bar for a bite and beer. It’s a small oyster bar setup very much like a bar where you grab a drink except it’s for oysters! We don’t have anything like that down South so I am a bit jelly. Usually, our…

Din Tai Fung (University District, Seattle, WA)

Are you a soup dumpling fan? I sure am! On a recent trip to Seattle, I just had to try Din Tai Fung (DTF). The Hong Kong and Macau locations were awarded a Michelin star in 2014, but since we can’t just hop onto a plane to China right now, the Seattle…

Rock-n-Sake Bar & Sushi (CBD, New Orleans, LA)

It’s been a few years since I’ve been to Rock-n-Sake. I went years ago and loved it, but after moving out of the city for a few years, I hadn’t had the chance to try it again until recently. The feel is still very warehouse-y modern with some techno-y club…

Banana Blossom Thai Cafe (Gretna, New Orleans, LA)

I re-discovered this restaurant recently with a group of friends and the hubby and I couldn’t help but return. When the old Cafe Zen relocated to the corner center of this strip, we accidentally went inside this restaurant but never gave it a chance. Now, they’ve “blossomed” into something great. They’ve…
