Pinkberry Hell’s Kitchen Review (New York, NY)

Behind our Times Square hotel, in the Hell’s Kitchen district of Midtown Manhattan, lies a glorious Pinkberry location. Since Pinkberry in West Vancouver had yet to open, we were excited to indulge in their famous frozen yogurt. Having first sampled the treat in San Diego, this New York City visit was technically our second experience […]

Balthazar In SoHo (New York, NY) – Manhattan’s Famous French Bistro

Balthazar, evocative of a Paris brasserie in New York City’s trendy SoHo district, is a restaurant & bakery, and even has its own cookbook! Acclaimed as New York’s most authentic French bistro, the restaurant is ranked number one in Urbanspoon’s New York Fine Dining category and number one on the SoHo list – all for […]

Antonio’s Pizzeria Restaurant Review (Brooklyn, NY)

During our visit to Brooklyn, our tour-operator stopped at Antonio’s Pizzeria because he claimed it was the best pizza in New York. It was a sweltering hot day so we were all grateful to grab a bite and beverage on the tour. Located on Flatbush Avenue, in the Prospect Heights area of Brooklyn, Antonio’s Pizzeria […]

Taco Bell Review (Marysville, WA)

What is it about our neighbors south of the border? Whenever we’re in Washington state, we consistently experience top-notch customer service – even at Taco Bell! And, whenever we shop at the Seattle Premium Outlets, we usually grab lunch at this specific Taco Bell location. On this particular visit, while we were eating our meals, […]

Dean & DeLuca Café Review – Midtown West (New York, NY)

Did you ever watch Felicity back in the day? The ’90s TV show is where I first heard about Dean & DeLuca (a chain of upscale markets and espresso bars). Although the company first opened in 1977 in the heart of SoHo, Felicity’s Dean & DeLuca set was modeled after their University Place café. The […]

Shake Shack Midtown West Review (New York, NY)

We had just arrived in NYC, fresh off a flight from Toronto, and checked into our SPG hotel (of course) in Midtown West. We ventured outside, taking in the sights of the Big Apple while strolling up 8th Avenue. We noticed a packed restaurant with a lineup out the door called the Shake Shack – it […]

In-N-Out Burger Review (Chandler, Arizona)

Why is In-N-Out so popular in Arizona? The reason is they keep their menu simple: No salads or fish or chicken products like other fast food joints, just burgers prepared to order, fries and beverages. In-N-Out is famous for its “Secret Menu”, unadvertised variations on its burgers that are based on customer preferences, such as […]

Taqueria Los 3 Hermanos (Bellingham, WA)

We were hesitant at first to try Taqueria Los 3 Hermanos because it’s located in the food court in Bellis Fair mall and, well, let’s face it, this isn’t Singapore where food court grub/hawker fare is incredibly delicious. However, my sister-in-law and her husband convinced us that it serves great authentic Mexican tacos. And they […]
