Soi 38 Review

Now that I am settled in to my new neighborhood in Washington D.C., I knew I wanted to find a good Thai food restaurant nearby because it was one of my favorite types of food. Whether dining in or getting take-out, I like to have several options nearby. As I checked out local Thai restaurants, Soi 38 jumped out to me thanks to rave reviews I saw online and gluten-free markings […]

Beau Thai Review

One of the truly great things about Washington D.C. is that you can find just about any type of food from around the world here. I love any type of non-American food (and it’s usually more gluten-free friendly), but until recently have not sought out Thai food in the District.  Thai food is my favorite of the Asian cuisines because it is just so flavorful and comforting. I love curries […]

Top 5 Gluten-Free Chain Restaurants of 2016

The final of my year-end round-up posts covered the cream of the crop of chain restaurants I visited this year.  Unlike my top picks from Baltimore (click here) and Washington D.C. (click here) this year, the good thing about the following chain restaurants is that there’s a good chance there’s a location near you. As an added bonus, chain restaurants are nice because they are located across state borders, which ensures a little piece […]

Honeygrow Review

Honeygrow is a Philadelphia-grown restaurant that quite recently is positioning themselves to expand into and all over DC and Baltimore (most locations are yet to be open as of the publication of this post).  Honeygrow’s menu consists of stir-fries, salads, and honeybars (think fruit-honey dream parfaits). With locally sourced ingredients and a focus on consciously curating the menu, Honeygrow is among the growing number of fast casual chains that care about making food both […]

Brown Rice Korean Grill Review

I am relatively new to Korean food, but after my first taste a couple weeks ago in D.C., I couldn’t wait to find a place local to me in Baltimore that would be safe for me to eat at.  After a tip from a friend that Brown Rice Korean Grill had gluten-free options, I eagerly planned a trip down Baltimore’s historic Charles Street to check out the restaurant for myself. […]

Seoul Spice Review

When I discovered that a new dedicated gluten-free restaurant popped up in the Washington D.C. restaurant scene, it was enough for me to make last minute Labor Day weekend plans to check out the latest addition to the growing number of totally gluten-free foodie destinations in the Nation’s Capitol.  Seoul Spice, located mere steps from the NOMA/Gallaudet stop on the Metro red line is the restaurant in question, and goes […]

Mamak Asian Street Food Review

By far my favorite area of Orlando is the Mills 50 neighborhood, where the restaurants are abundant and tourists are rarely found. The area is a gold mine for top quality (and affordable) eats, and has a wonderful concentration of Asian restaurants representing the diversity of Asian countries.  Ironically, Asian food is really hit or miss for gluten-free eaters. Soy sauce, breadings, and noodles must be navigated around, but as far […]

Gluten-Free & Dairy-Free Favorite Products: March 2016

In this edition of my monthly round up of my new favorite product discoveries I bring to you, my readers, four new products that have tempted my taste buds and won me over. From frozen food to crackers, these products are definitely going to be incorporated into my collegiate diet and are great gluten-free finds.  From both familiar and new-to-me brands, I love keeping my eyes opened now whenever I venture […]

iPho Noodle House Review

Those who have followed my blog and/or instagram for a while might have picked up on the fact that I am a huge fan of pho, the Vietnamese noodle soup that is my go-to comfort food come winter weather or rainy day. Orlando has a unique neighborhood called Little Vietnam where pho restaurants abound, but for my recent pho excursion, I decided to head north of town to Lake Mary […]

Sus Hi Eatstation Review (Sushi Eatstation)

Although I’ve taste tested my way around many Asian cuisines here on the blog, I have not yet made it to the world of sushi, mostly for my dislike of raw fish and difficulty of finding safe places to give the cuisine a go.  Luckily, a previous engagement near UCF proved to be the perfect opportunity for me to try out Sus Hi Eatstation, a funky sushi place that serves up food […]
