L’Orecchietta, London UK

Yes more pizza. I stopped by this bar/restaurant a few times for lunch while working down the street in London. At first appearance it did not look like they would have good food here, it was a dark, subdued bar, but they had plenty of table seats and a menu so… After finally figuring out…

Yard Pizzeria, London UK

After work, on another hunt for a local restaurant in London, I went searching for a few highly rated places to have dinner.  Unfortunately the first one was so crowded there was a line out the door and down the block – damn they must have really good food there!  It was time to revert…

Eating healthy when dining out

After the start of the new year I really started paying attention to menus and food choices and found it is possible to eat healthy when dining out. It’s all a matter of making the right healthy choices. Many restaurants now offer healthy selections somewhere on their menus, you just need to look for them…

Worthy Brewing in Bend, Oregon

You’ve probably heard of Deschutes Brewery and maybe 10 Barrel, Good Life, Cascade Lakes Brewing, Boneyard, Solstice, Silver Moon or one of the other of the many breweries in Bend. There are a lot.  Personally, I’ve been to nearly all of them…

Fat Rabbit Public House

Decided to head over to The Fat Rabbit Public House on Sutter Street in Old Town Folsom for lunch today. Needless to say I was not disappointed. I had the pieorgies appetizer and the special of the day, catfish tacos. The food was very good and tasted great washing it all down with a Belgian…
