Photo of the Day: May 20, 2017

An artery-clogging but amazing Irish Breakfast at Kildare’s in West Chester, Pennsylvania. It felt as if everything I needed in life was right there on that plate. August 2016.

Travel Guide PA: Cafe Chocolate (Lititz)

With a name like Cafe Chocolate, you would not expect much else. That and we were told to go here for the fondue. I had no idea they actually had a menu with real food on it. And an eclectic menu at that: you could get Indian Mulligatawny soup, vegetable curry, or a grilled chicken…

Takeout Joints: Pizza/Italian Volume 2

Following the first part of my “Takeout Joints” column, here are three more pizzerias and Italian restaurants in my area. They each offer something different, from a special crust to childhood memories, and finally some wild and wacky slices you will not find anywhere else. Esposito’s Pizza (Matawan) Three words: sesame seed crust. Without it, unfortunately,…

Greg’s Turn to Review the New Monmouth Diner

This just happens to be my 100th restaurant review.  Reading Hunter’s review of the New Monmouth Diner got me thinking about just how much I love the place. I could say many of the same things as he did, but instead, will begin with a story. It was my first or second visit there a…

Travel Guide MD: Decatur Diner (Ocean City)

They have something on the menu called the “Pipeline”. When I ordered it, I was asked if I was absolutely sure I wanted a full instead of a half. I asked the waitress to elaborate further. Her description ended up being spot on, but in my mind, I could not possibly conceive it to be…

Travel Guide TX: Hoffbrau Steaks (Dallas)

Apologies for the quality of the photos. It was dark in there and I didn’t want to use my flash. We wanted to save a steakhouse for our last night in Dallas. I was looking forward to it for so long. If you’ve read my reviews of restaurants in Dallas during the trip, you will find…

Travel Guide TX: Gator’s Downtown (Dallas)

We were lucky that many good restaurants were within walking distance of the hotel. While Gator’s does come with some baggage, overall it proved to be a decent dining experience. As soon as you walk inside you are met with a quirky alligator-themed decor. The atmosphere is fun and relaxed and people seem to be enjoying…

Travel Guide PA: Kildare’s Public House (West Chester)

It was a beautiful afternoon when we dined here and although the inside of the pub was gorgeous, we decided to sit outside. The menu was full of contemporary American classics as well as old Irish favorites. As soon as I saw the full Irish breakfast listed, I knew what I wanted. I had never had…

Happy Thanksgiving 2016: What’s Cooking?

Ah, the day has finally come. The one holiday anyone can celebrate. What is more American than a day devoted entirely to eating? Not much else. Below is what is one the menu in my house today. My mom takes care of most of it, but there are a few things I will be handling…

Travel Guide PA: General Sutter Inn (Lititz)

Chicken and Leek Pie. While at the Lititz Historical Association, we had inquired about the General Sutter Inn to the tour guide we were chatting with. He said that along with the British pub connected to it are owned by the same person, a man who was from Liverpool, and that the food was authentic. This…
