Torchy's is seriously on a roll. 8.5/10This taco is really incredible. It's a flour tortilla loaded with a ton of steak, bacon, feta cheese, pico de gallo, and chimmichurri sauce. When I say that there's a lot of steak, I'm not kidding. Mine was almost too much meat compared to the tortilla and sauces, but … Continue reading April Taco of the Month: The Vagabond
The cheese, not the pizza, is what'll bring me back. 5.5/10So I'm gonna be honest here, despite the "harsh" score, this place really was delicious. The atmosphere was really cool: it was a small, yet cozy, restaurant off Burnet with a cute bar and the pizza oven was right in the middle of the eating … Continue reading Bufalina

Torchy’s Tacos and the Start of the Ongoing Taco of the Month Review!
Yeah, it's pretty damn good. 7/10I'm gonna be honest, I wasn't always a Torchy's fan. There are a couple tacos I've always loved like the Democrat and the Baja Shrimp, but it's taken a lot of coaxing from my friends to convince me this place is the real deal. I'm not a huge fan of … Continue reading Torchy’s Tacos and the Start of the Ongoing Taco of the Month Review!
I'm addicted. 8/10I actually have an issue with how often I crave Biderman's bagels. My usual is either the avocado bagel sandwich, which is super simple--just cream cheese, avocado, and sea salt--but oh so good, and the lox deluxe sandwich, which is your classic bagel and lox but loaded with tomato, onion, and capers. Just … Continue reading Biderman’s Deli
Chick-fil-A vs. Raising Cane’s
The ultimate face-off. After several requests to review "normal" food, I thought, "what's more normal than chicken nuggets?" And anyone who has ever tried these places (I hope that's everyone reading this...if not, go get it right now!!!) knows how good they both are. I feel like the only two options for getting fast food … Continue reading Chick-fil-A vs. Raising Cane’s
If you don't love this place something's wrong with you. 9.5/10. Okay, I know what you're thinking. How could a small-chain, high-end Chipotle get my highest rating thus far? If you’ve eaten here, the answer is pretty obvious... it's just insanely good. I try and focus my ratings on three aspects: atmosphere, price, and the … Continue reading Cabo Bob’s
Odd Duck- Brunch
True farm to table & the flawless presentation. 6.5/10 I just went to Odd Duck for brunch (only on Sundays 10:30-2:30) and it had an amazing atmosphere. As soon as you walk in, you hear the hustle and bustle of people eating at bar tables and on the balcony (with a view of the skyline!). … Continue reading Odd Duck- Brunch
Mia Italian Tapas & Bar
Best carbonara. 8/10 I've been to Mia several times now and am in love with their food. Being the person who can never decide what I want to eat and loves taking bites off of other people's plates, Mia is really great because of their tapas style menu. If you aren't the type that loves … Continue reading Mia Italian Tapas & Bar
Below average sushi for a high-end price... 3/10 Yeah, so, I'm not really a fan... I've eaten here a few times before but not recently until this past weekend. I ended up favoring a large lunch with my boyfriend's family and was extremely disappointed. We ordered edamame, 2 Boston rolls, fried rice, tempura shrimp, and … Continue reading Sushi Zushi
