Pie Pushers – Food Truck

Last week I caught up with the Pie Pushers food truck for lunch at  RTP Headquarters. The slice was a pretty good, thin crust. I thought it was a tad on the expensive side at $4 a slice (sausage, mushrooms and onions) but I definitely didn’t walk away feeling cheated. To find out where Pie Pushers will be slinging […]

Assaggio’s Italian Bistro

After my better half took me to Assaggio’s for lunch, my first question was “why has a girl from the Bronx not taken me to this place sooner”? Authentic, quality and tasty Italian cuisine may be hard to find in the South but now I know exactly where to find it. Garlic Knots – The dough […]

Where: North Pavilion / 2400 Pratt Steet / Durham, NC When: Monday, November 28th 2011 – 1:00pm It would be fair to say I grew up fairly spoiled when it came to pizza. Forty minutes to my east was classic New Haven style pizza like Pepe’s Pizza. To the west was New York City an […]

All this grub and a soda for $4.95 8925 Fallbrook Dr Ste 200 Houston, TX I was starving when I stepped off the plane in Houston a few hours ago but did not stop at any of the vendors in the airport. McDonald’s, Sbarro’s, Burger King, despite my hunger pangs I refused because I was now […]

Soul Rebels Bring the 504 to the 919 at Papa Mojo’s

I had eaten at Papa Mojo’s a few times and loved the food. I saw the Soul Rebels Brass Band at the New Orleans Jazzfest and was blown away. So when I found out there were playing at Papa Mojo’s I knew I was guaranteed a good night. These guys have rocked 50,000 person venues so […]

Bayang – Balinese Indonesian in Singapore

Clarke Quay, Singapore This has been my best meal in Singapore so far. I did not think anything would beat Chong Qing Fish in Chinatown but today Bayang somehow did it. Everything on the table was a taste bud awakening experience. As someone who loves to cook, this is what I dig about traveling. When something hits my […]
