I can’t believe it has taken me so long to get here. I first heard about Campus Cafe a while ago and it immediately peaked my interest: A North American college cafeteria style restaurant with a huge variety of delicious and inexpensive food to choose from. What’s not to love?

My Beefy Paradise: Danny’s Steakhouse
By Chris | Published 2015/03/23

Happy Birthday to me! There’s only one thing I like better than a steak dinner, and that’s a steak dinner prepared in a wood-fired stove and cooked to perfection. If you are the kind of person, like me, who craves the taste of meat in a primal sort of way, then there is one fine-dining […]

Fairy Cafe

Dining Comes Alive at VIVO
By Chris | Published 2014/03/06

When I first heard Vivo was a Spanish Tapas place, I was imagining another quaint, fairly authentic, restaurant. One that serves to a group of few, but loyal customers.

Red Bull American Char-Grilled Steak
By Chris | Published 2013/09/13

A big ol’ juicy slab of beef, no sauce, no frills. While there are numerous, delicious versions of pulled pork, hamburgers, hotdogs and chicken, char-grilled steak will always be the centerpiece of American BBQ. Big, meaty and simple, steak reflects American culture pretty well, and for better or worse, a proper steak is what I’m craving […]
