It wasn’t easy getting a reservation at Salt of the Earth, so when I finally secured a spot for last Thursday evening, I was excited. We arrived at 8pm sharp, and were greeted by a very friendly hostess. As she was checking on our table, I looked around, and was extremely impressed with the layout of the restaurant.
I shared slices of my hot Pear Pie with Ryan and Brianna, and they seemed to agree that it was great! I loved it (if I do say so myself). The next day, I took the remaining slices in to work to share with Mari and Chef Chuck. Success!
I’ve never met anyone who doesn’t like cupcakes – cake, frosting (buttercream), and a soft wrapper that hold all of that goodness together. Cupcakes have been around for decades, but recently there’s been a serious surge in their popularity.
My love affair with hot meat began about fifteen years ago at a place called Drovers Inn in my hometown. After swim meets or football games, family and friends would crowd into the rustic restaurant, and devour baskets upon baskets of hot wings and cheese fries.
Roberto’s is open 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. That means, if you need a Mexican-food-fix, you can get it- no matter what time of the night it is, or which particular Holiday happens to roll around.
I like doing things by myself: going to movies, going to bars, going out to eat. I’m a loner, Dottie. A rebel. Monday night I decided to take a drive to Bellevue to check out a new Thai restaurant that I’ve been hearing a lot about. Thai Suan Thip may be located off the beaten path, but it’s worth driving a few minutes out of the city for a high quality Thai dining experience.
I was really looking forward to visiting the Hofbräuhaus when it opened in the South Side Works in the spring of 2009. I just had a feeling it would be a place I would thoroughly enjoy… and I was right.
