Little Sesame Review

If you are a hummus-lover, this review is especially for you, because DC’s Little Sesame elevates the middle eastern spread from a grocery-aisle staple to the star of the show.  Located in the bustling Golden Triangle neighborhood (in the former home of Veloce, may it rest in peace), Little Sesame brings a decidedly different take on the current fast-casual bowl craze. With a fun and inviting space and focus on real, artfully […]

SKWR Kabobline Review

If there’s one restaurant trend I can wholeheartedly get behind, it’s the proliferation of fast casual “make your own bowl” restaurants that have popped up in and around Washington D.C. They make grabbing an affordable, healthy lunch easy, and coming many culinary varieties- Mediterranean, Indian, Korean, and more. The latest of these type of restaurants I visited is SKWR Kabobline in downtown D.C. Offering a gourmet take on a street vendor staple- […]

Falafelicious Review

Update 12/28/15: Falafelicious has closed for the winter. Check their Facebook page for updates as to their spring reopening. I am admittedly a huge fan of ethnic food and have been bummed out by a lack of accessible falafel-serving establishments in the Baltimore area. Since falling head over heels for the middle eastern delicacy earlier this year, falafel has become a staple of my diet in a pretty big way.  With […]

Umami Global Bistro Review

Okay, I know my recent review line up has been very product heavy. With my academic workload piling up and the massive (but amazing) ordeal of Expo East over the last few weeks, I haven’t had the time to check out the restaurants on my wish list.  Luckily, my mom came to visit last week, which allowed me to enjoy 72 hours of temporary freedom, as together we crazily ran […]

Aramouni's by Nature's Healthy Gourmet Review

Recently, I’ve fallen head over heels for falafels in a big way. First tasting this Middle Eastern delicacy in Annapolis this Spring, I’ve since become a huge fan of this naturally gluten-free dish.   While checking out the Winter Park Whole Foods Market, I stopped by the prepared foods case and found a goldmine of gluten and dairy-free friendly foods from Aramouni’s by Nature’s Healthy Gourmet. This Port St. Lucie company […]

Hubbly Bubbly Falafel Shop Review

Ever since discovering the magic of falafels while exploring Annapolis this spring, I’ve been wanting to get another taste of the Middle Eastern delicacy. Luckily, I stumbled across Hubbly Bubbly, a College Park installation while going out for lunch with a friend recently, and the location proved to be the perfect meet-up point. What’s so cool about Hubbly Bubbly, is that this little restaurant serves up seriously good food that […]

Amsterdam Falafelshop Annapolis Review

Amsterdam Falafelshop has closed their Annapolis location. They still operate restaurants in DC.  Annapolis is a beautiful, quaint bayside city that is the seat of Maryland’s government and the perfect distance away from Baltimore for a nice weekend trip.  In town for a special event, I made sure to take advantage of a whole day in town to check out the sights and tastes of the city. What’s cool about […]

Lebanese Taverna Review

With the exception of a super busy spring break, my foodie scouting has been cut short this semester due to winter weather, fighting sickness, and working my way though not the easiest of courseloads. Needing a true “Sunday funday” before the final push to the end of the semester, I took advantage of a a absolutely beautiful Sunday to momentarily flee my scholarly duties and get a bit of foodie […]

Bosphorous Turkish Cuisine Review

Far from the hustle and bustle of the more “tourist-y” areas of Orlando, Winter Park is a not-so-hidden gem that is not to be missed. Restaurants, artisans, and shops populate this community with the epicenter being Park Avenue. Along the pedestrian-friendly main street and adjacent side streets, new experiences are waiting at every turn- from doggie boutiques to restaurants serving every type and style of cuisine. There’s always something new […]
