What’s this giant mushroom and why are you posting it on New Year’s Eve, you may be wondering? Well read on. The snippet below is from last year’s December trip to Kennett Square, Pennsylvania. And of course, what would a stay at this place on New Year’s Eve be without sticking around to see the…

A delicious trio of spring rolls at Lily in Kennett Square, PA. But the star of this dish was actually the spicy mayo on the side. To this date, it’s the best I’ve ever had. December 2016.

Apparently, this is the fanciest table I’ve ever sat at, and for a Heineken no less. Then again, even the mere cafeteria at Longwood Gardens is nothing to sneeze at. You can get this bottle for $7, and have everything from a $20 prime rib to a small bottle of wine even more expensive than…

Travel Guide PA: A Tale of Two Plaza Aztecas

Jekyll, meet Hyde. Last month, my friend and I ate at a Plaza Azteca in Kennett Square. It’s a small Mexican chain in Pennsylvania and other states on the east coast. As I detailed in my review, the food was good enough to get 4 out of 5 stars. I was, in fact, impressed with…
