Brunch bliss – The Friendly Toast – Boston MA.

At times I wish I didn’t work weekends so that I could brunch a typical brunch, but then I remember that I can brunch on a Wednesday when there’s nobody around without making reservations, and I feel a little better about the situation. This Wednesday in Boston MA was no different, and as my husband…

Ramen roundup – restaurant week – Chicago, Illinois.

Our time in Chicago has almost come to an end, and with 4 ramen shops under our belt we feel as though we made a good dent on the scene as a whole. Through the week we found ourselves in a record breaking polar vortex that was truly the coldest I’ve ever been in my…

High Five Ramen – restaurant week – Chicago Illinois.

Our last ramen stop of the week was definitely a unique one, and that’s where High Five Ramen entered our lives. After trying the previous night to get a table we where told there would be a 3 hour wait, which we couldn’t do on that particular evening. We had one more chance before work…

Ramen Takeya – restaurant week – Chicago Illinois.

Another day in the Windy City was proving to live up to its name as my scarf began to frost from my warm breath whilst waiting for our Uber. Today we where on our way to Ramen Takeya on W Fulton Market street, and after the Uber driver pulled out the wrong way on a…

Ramen San – restaurant week – Chicago Illinois.

For our second ramen adventure of the week we found ourselves on our way to Ramen San. I would like to point out that when I first arrived in Chicago on the Sunday evening I had ordered delivery from Ramen San. I would recommend to not get ramen delivery but to instead head to the…

MORE brewing leaves us wanting more in Villa park, Illinois.

This week my husband and I took quite a pricey Uber from Rosemont Illinois to Villa Park, a hefty 16 mile trip, and I have to say that we where not disappointed in the slightest. After researching nearby breweries online there was just something about MORE that really ticked all of the boxes for us….

Terakawa Ramen; our love of Tonkotsu lives on in Philadelphia, PA.

This week we are in Philadelphia, and it feels good to be back reviewing restaurants after a dry spell in not so good hotel/work locations. The starvation of good eats has seemed to take its toll on morale at Casa Conley, but we’ve been pumping out some fantastic home cooked meals which you can find…

Pizza and donuts like never before – Raleigh, North Carolina.

This week my husband turned 30 years old in Raleigh, North Carolina. Stuck with what to do, and knowing that although the day would involve craft beer 100%, we also needed something along the lines of food; welcome, Poke Burri. I searched online for ramen joints, for pho joints, for Korean bbq joints, and just…

Duck heaven at Oramen, NYC.

Today my husband and I jumped into an Uber and headed from Brooklyn, into the city, hoping to arrive at a ramen shop we’d found online. After almost 40 minutes my husband decided to check his phone and realized we where going the completely wrong way, and somehow the link on google maps that connects…
