    As I’m writing this, I’m feasting on my leftover Carnitas Enchiladas.  Savoring the smoky flavor from the enchilada sauce and the cilantro infused sour cream on top.  Yeah, Springfield, we have a new Mexican joint in town and if my dinner from the other night (as well as my leftovers for lunch today) is any […]

    I’ve been hearing about this place for a while from others but was waiting for the time & opportunity to present itself.  That happened recently when friend Danny got a new job up north and we got together for lunch. We arrived towards the end of the lunch hour and found a pretty busy place […]

    I’ve been intimidated by Kai for a long time.  My wife and I stepped into the doorway once right after it opened and saw a dark place with lots of ‘trendy’ people dressed in black and we just don’t have the black clothes in our wardrobe to fit into that crowd. Fast forward to a […]

    Meatball & Cooper’s got onto my radar due to a coupon I found in one of the local papers.  The top of the coupon proclaimed  “Lookin’ for Home Style Cookin’!” and had pictures of a burger and meatball sub.  It looked like the perfect place for lunch, so I made plans to meet my friend […]

    Earlier this week I noticed a sign for a new restaurant on West Sunshine that I decided needed a visit.  Rolls N Bowls (RnB) is the name, Vietnamese is the game.  RnB is in the spot where Little Saigon used to be.  I did a little checking there was another name for this same spot […]

    Seems the Tan brothers are at it again.  This time branching out of their Asian and Pacific Rim comfort zone (5 Spice, Ocean Zen, Yum Yum Bowl) and into the trendy bar scene with Flo Eatery and Wine Bar.  Last Saturday, my wife and I decided on an early evening outing to Flo to check […]

    I had lunch today at the new Leong’s.  There has been plenty of info recently in the media about the Leong family history and fame as the creator of we all have come to know as Springfiel Style Cashew Chicken, so I won’t go into any of that here.  I will say that the original […]

    My wife and I were on the east side recently, it was dinner time and we were hungry.  I had noticed that there was a new place going into the spot at Eastgate & Sunshine where Tuscan Grill had been and we decided to drive by and see if it was open – it wasn’t […]

    I’ve wanted to try Whisler’s ever since my nephew showed me a picture of the eight-decker cheeseburger he ordered there.  In the picture, there were 8 burger patties, 8 pieces of cheese and 8 pieces of bacon – enclosed within a bun and held together with a wooden spear.  Well, an opportunity presented itself recently […]

    Gelato?  Springfield?  What???  Ok, so maybe it isn’t all that weird – but there is a new rival in the ice cream / frozen yogurt / frozen custard scene in town.  Located just east of Park Central Square is an unassuming spot that looks more like a coffee house than an ice cream place.  The […]
