This week I’ve decided to take a break from food and write an article on something about which I am very passionate; coffee—specifically, espresso. Even more specifically, I’ll address where to get a decent cup of coffee in the capital city. Many people mistakenly believe that espresso comes from a different species of coffee bean […]
I alluded to the fact that Virginia is void of her own unique style of barbecue in an earlier post but now I feel it appropriate to properly rant. What the heck is that?! Virginia, the place where the first Jamestown started what would become the US, the home of Washington, Jefferson, Madison, Poe, Maury […]
I recall a created holiday we celebrated in Elementary school aptly entitled, “America Day.” We had games outside and learned facts about the 50 states and the presidents but when it came time for lunch we switched gears. I was only seven-years-old but I remember so vividly confronting my teachers to address a sneaking suspicion […]
Every major city in the US has an Asian cultural center and Richmond is no exception. The only distinction between ours and theirs is that our downtown Chinatown is Horsepen Road—a semi-suburban road that would go unnoticed if you didn’t know what Asian delights occupied it.

Since we went to the Capital Ale House for an office luncheon the best we could do was to stare in awe at the menu. And that was just for the beer. The downtown location carries 53 beers on tap. That’s not a misprint. There’s a huge selection of ales, pilsners, stouts, porters and more […]
Once when I used Foursquare to check in at Bass Pro Shop in Ashland a friend, who does not see me as the outdoors or hunter typed simply responded “why?’ I told her that she had obviously not been to the Islamorada Fish Company Restaurant. True, you don’t usually associate great food being served to […]
While searching deep in my mind and my palette, I came up with the idea to kill two birds with one stone and get some lunch near work and gather research for an article. Meals on Wheels — but not the charity. I toyed with the idea of starting my own food cart a few […]
I remember distinctly thinking while in Italy that I didn’t trust the fish at the new sushi bar in town. I was in an old walled city that was relatively traditional despite a large student population and I felt like seafood couldn’t possibly be fresh since the town was not right on the beach and […]
Richmond is not New York. It’s not even Paris or London. It’s much cheaper by comparison and so when you’re out of work and crunched for time between episodes of Jerry Springer and Maury Povich, you need to find places that offer good food for an even better price. And NOT FAST FOOD! Of course […]
