Phat Thai Cafe Review

Coming off of a finals week buoyed by Thai food and pho, my taste for Asian cuisine was not extinguished upon returning home. After the wave of energy and emotion that is Christmas crashed after a whirlwind day, my mom and wanted to get out of the house on Boxing Day but were not ready to battle the madness of big shopping centers or the more tourist-y areas of town.  After […]

Sea Thai Restaurant Review

After three months away from the sunshine state, I have long awaited my Thanksgiving return for a chance to enjoy home cooked meals and taste a new restaurant or two. It’s amazing how refreshing a break from dining hall fare can be for this foodie freshman.  Although I’ve been able to sneak of campus here and there, a recent string of papers, essays, and exams- in addition to cold weather- […]

Noodle Charm Review

Having gone many months since my last encounter with Thai cuisine, I made a goal of seeking out my favorite dialect of Asian food this weekend as cooler temperatures called for comfort food. After considering the many Thai restaurants in and around the Baltimore area, I selected Noodle Charm as my intended destination as it is a sister restaurant to one I’ve already visited (Spice and Dice Thai) and nearby a bustling […]

Thai One On Review

A couple weeks into the semester now, I’ve finally got my routine down with studying, dining, and having fun. While I relish the wide-openness of weekends, I must admit that the campus empties out a bit and is a shadow of its weekday self. On one such weekend after being cooped up in my room all day, I knew I just had to fly the coop and break away for […]

ShopHouse Southeast Asian Kitchen CLOSED

All ShopHouse locations are closed as of March 17, 2017. If I didn’t know any better, I would have thought that ShopHouse Asian Kitchen was custom-designed for my quirky tastes and favorite flavors. After all, this restaurant, which is the brainchild of Chipotle founder Steve Ells, merges the brilliance of Chipotle’s commitment to accessible “food with integrity” with the rich culinary heritage of Asia all while serving up a menu that is […]

Side Trip: Anyetsang's Little Tibet Review and Anatolia Review (Bloomington, IN)

I firmly believe that colleges and good restaurants are like lightning and thunder; where one goes, the other is sure to follow. That is definitely true of Bloomington, IN, home of Indiana University and a plethora of restaurants and cafes serving up quality fare for hungry college students and locals alike. While the town is populated with restaurants of all stripes- family run establishments to national chains- I knew I […]

Side Trip: LaRosa's Pizza Review and The Green Papaya Review (Cincinnati, OH)

The People of Cincinnati are proud of their distinct culinary mainstays that have become world-renowned. Skyline’s chili, Graeter’s ice cream, Montomery Inn’s ribs and LaRosa’s pizza are just a handful of the tried and true companies that are pinnacles of the city’s taste. Having tried all of the above restaurants growing up in Ohio, I can testify to their greatness, but upon going gluten free almost three years ago, I […]

Saffron Road Lemongrass Basil Chicken Review

Though I’m making the most of my time left here in Central Florida, I’m all too aware that pretty soon I’ll be in a new locale with new food options and limited opportunities to eat out. I’ve already been working with dining services at my new school regarding my dietary needs, but know that sometimes a trip to the dining hall will not be in the cards. This summer, I’ve […]

Spice and Dice Thai Review (Towson, MD)

Every good college town needs it’s restaurant staples and Towson/Baltimore is no different. From past experiences and doing some driving around, I already knew they had gluten-free friendly grocery stores (Whole Foods, Fresh Market, etc.), chain restaurants (Red Robin, Chipotle, Qdoba, etc.), and even a local pizza place that would deliver a gluten free pizza. One staple cuisine I was missing after a couple visits worth of exploring was a […]

Orchid Thai Review

As a food blogger, I keep a list of restaurants I want to visit in the future from friend’s recommendations and discovering new finds through databases and review sites such as Find Me Gluten Free. Though this has helped me break out of my mold and discover new restaurants, I’ve quickly realized that Central Florida has way more gluten-free friendly places than I first thought which has made my list […]
