Sweet Soul is the perfect place for you to indulge in sweet treats without feeling guilty. They serve all vegan, paleo and plant-based items that all benefit the body in some way. Two of my favorite ingredients lately are matcha, a.k.a. green tea, which is high in antioxidants, and charcoal, which helps with your skin complexion. Sweet Soul has a unique soft serve that mixes both of my favorites!
We tried out a lot of restaurants while visiting Vancouver and one of our favorite places was Chambar, located just behind the Airbnb we were staying at in downtown Vancouver. We were in a mood for some good brunch and read rave reviews on how awesome this restaurant was, so we had to see for ourselves.
Ichicoro Ane’s is one of our favorite Japanese restaurants and we wanted to try the ramenya this time with delicious dishes like the Sake Matcha, Shio Ramen, Halo Halo and more!
We get asked quite often for food recommendations in Japan and it's so hard for us to pick a favorite as everything in Japan is so delicious. We decided to put together a list of dishes that we always have to eat when we go home to Japan.
We've never been to France, but every time we drive by Cafe Madeleine we imagine coffee shops like Cafe Madeline all over Paris. Located in a quaint neighborhood in South Park, you can't miss the bright red building with outside tables and crimson umbrellas lining the sidewalk.
We recently attended the fabulous Galentine's Brunch at Fruitcraft with Gals That Brunch and had such a wonderful time. This was an event supporting local charities and boutiques such as Cinderella’s Attic, Sweetly Striped and Wild Hearts and Halos.
We are obsessed with ramen and have been eating ramen since we were kids. We've been noticing the ramen boom in the US and have been impressed with Ichicoro and Dosunco in Florida, along with Tajima and Jinya Ramen Bar in California. Now it was time to taste the real deal at Tokyo Ramen Street where 8 of the best ramen shops are under one roof at Tokyo station.
I’ve always been infatuated with coffee art and since we were making a trip to Japan, I already knew of a couple of places I wanted to stop by because now there is 2D and 3D coffee art in Japan!
Coffee shops these days are getting so creative it's getting increasingly harder for me to pick a favorite spot. Communal Coffee is unique in tht it shares it's space with Native Poppy.
The much anticipated Ichicoro Ane is now open in St. Petersburg, Florida! I was lucky enough to get a sneak peek of the newest Japanese restaurant and am very excited about this new addition to the Tampa Bay area as it is like none other.
I was visiting Universal Universal Orlando Resort for the weekend and knew I had to stop by The Toothsome Chocolate Emporium & Savory Feast Kitchen (can they make the name any longer?). The name of the restaurant itself is fun so I knew this place would be a fabulous time with my friend, Mariko, who was visiting from Canada.
I have always been fascinated by liquid nitrogen and Cauldron's organic handcrafted ice cream did not disappoint!
Bentonville's food scene has been emerging with top-notch restaurants in the last few years. They have award-winning dishes combined with southern hospitality and the town is quickly becoming a hot spot for foodies. Here are our top 7 favorite restaurants and cafes in this charming city.
The Preacher's Son is the newest hotspot in Bentonville when it comes to good food, cool vibes, underground bar and a rooftop bar all in one place. The executive chef, Matt Cooper, is actually a preacher's son and modified the oldest church in Bentonville (built in 1904) into a gorgeous bright establishment. We were very excited to dine at one of newest additions to this up-and-coming foodie town.
I have been wanting to write this post for awhile because it’s my favorite ramen shop in the Tampa Bay area. Actually, Japanese Kitchen Dosunco is probably my favorite ramen shop ever; even compared to some ramen restaurants in Japan. It took me awhile to write about it because every time I go, I eat the ramen right away and I don’t have anything to take pictures of. Finally, after numerous trips, I have calmed myself down and took the time to really take in the food, restaurant and the ambience.
We arrived at Pressroom first thing Sunday for brunch and were excited to try this hip restaurant located in Bentonville Square. The space is bright and colorful with an industrial-modern atmosphere and the brunch menu had a variety of dishes made with fresh local ingredients.
Tusk & Trotter caught our attention as they have received numerous awards and recognitions since their opening in 2011. Owned by chef Rob Nelson, the award-winning eatery is located right off "The Square" in downtown Bentonville, Arkansas and the building was once Sam Walton's general office and warehouse.
Ozark Mountain Bagel Co. just opened in May 2017 and has already gotten rave reviews from all of it’s customers. While we were visiting Bentonville, Arkansas, we had to go see what the rage was all about for ourselves. We have only had store-bought bagels, so we were pretty excited to try handcrafted and freshly made water boiled bagels from Ozark Mountain Bagel.
We were really looking forward to this unique dining experience at Animal Kingdom's Sanaa Restaurant, so much so, that we made sure to get there as soon as they opened to get the best seat in the house. Being able to dine with the view of the safari animals was one thing we really wanted to experience while staying at Disney World's Animal Kingdom Lodge.
I have been waiting months to dine at one of the newest restaurants in Disney World at Be Our Guest Restaurant. It's a Beauty and the Beast themed restaurant located within the Magic Kingdom amusement park and you get to meet the Beast himself!
We were searching for a place to have a nice and chill Wednesday night when we came across Cheese Please. Cheese Please is a nice little wine bar that offers wine and cheese tastings and their online reviews were outstanding. We couldn't believe that we didn't stumble upon this place sooner with all the rave reviews.
The "cool streets" of Hillcrest and North Park have amazing microbreweries and have built quite the reputation. Fruitcraft is one of the newest additions to this hipster neighborhood and it is not your average tasting room.
We were really looking forward to visiting this hidden gem and have been following 801 E. Main's journey from their humble beginnings. Robyn, the owner, has been frying up her famous New Orlean's style beignets from her farmer's market stand, The Poor Porker, for years and has since expanded to an amazing eclectic space at. 801 E. Main St.
I have never been to Spain (on my bucket list) and Cafe Sevilla gave me a beautiful glimpse of this country.
We have been huge fans of Ella's Americana Folk Art Cafe for over six years now and began going to this unique and trendy spot shortly after they opened. Every time we have friends in town, this is one of the spots we love taking them to. We've spent so much time here that we decided it was time to share this hidden gem.
Succulent Cafe is nestled between two buildings and the space is utilized beautifully. It is the perfect spot to unwind and savor a nice cup of coffee.
Holy Matcha opened its doors this month (March 11, 2017) and I immediately fell in love with the interior design. I simply adore baby pink walls and cute succulent arrangements.
Oceanside is really bursting into the culinary scene and before I stopped by three amazing restaurants that were using local produce, I went straight to the source: Cyclops Farms.
