Foodie Travels: Breakfasts in Chicago!

My view of downtown Chicago, from Lake Michigan! Chicago marked the end of a long travel binge! Praise god because I am TIRED! I went to Chicago for my friend's 30th birthday bash. Chicago is definitely a foodie town so I was excited to try some new places during this trip.  Their foodie history is best represented by the Taste of Chicago event.  The taste was going on while I was in town and shockingly I decided not to go.  So many of my Chicagoan friends have said "it's not the same" so we saved our money and time! I [...]

Foodie Travels: Kansas City

At least once a year I make the trip to Kansas City, my birthplace and where most of my family still lives (Houston is still home though!)  I was only in town for a few days for the fourth of July but I was eager to try out a new restaurant for brunch while there.   I planned to meet some college friends who live there and wanted somewhere that was unique to Kansas City.  I asked my twitter followers if Kansas City had any "cute brunch" places and one of my friend offered up Char Bar.  It definitely met my expectations! [...]

Birthday Brunch!

To celebrate my birthday, I invited several friends out to a Saturday brunch at Union Kitchen.  As you can imagine, the girls in my life also love a good brunch, so it seemed like the appropriate choice. Of course I had a great time with my girls! Not quite 30, yet but this still seems fitting HAHAHA! The Setup:  Urban Kitchen has several locations in Houston. This location is on Bellaire in a crowded shopping center.  It's right next to Dr. Nowzaradan office. He's the doctor on TLC's show My 600 pound life.  I actually say a film [...]

Foodie Travels: Brunch and Lunch in Boston

After indulging in so much sugar during our cupcake tour we asked the hotel concierge for light lunch suggestions.  The concierge suggested Stephanie's on Newbury Street which was thankfully walking distance.  I love a walkable city, my hometown unfortunately is not. We made the scenic walk to Stephanie's with me stopping for pictures at every block.  We went for a table on the large patio allowing me to continue taking in the city and to people watch.  I did not get a chance to venture inside so I cannot speak for the set up in the restaurant. One of the [...]

Dish Society Brunch

As you may have already gathered, I like brunch! So when a few of my former co-workers suggested we get together for a much needed reunion, brunch was my suggestion.  We settled on Dish Society in the Galleria area (there is also a Katy location), because I kept seeing it popping up on Best of Houston lists so I figured it was worth I try. Drinks Unfortunately, I did not partake in the mimosas this go around, but by glancing at the menu it seems like they offer more variety than your typical champagne and orange juice.  They even had [...]

Top Houston Brunch Spots

It bears repeating that I just love eating out, that includes, breakfast, brunch, lunch, happy hour dinner, dessert. But brunch, it holds a special place in my food loving heart. A good brunch has the right element of haughtiness to quell the inner bougey black girl who resides in all of us. It’s a menu that includes breakfast and lunch items, so no matter what you are feeling it’s got you covered. It goes till about 2 or 3pm so even though you just rolled out of bed at 1:30pm after a night of drinking and partying you can still [...]
