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.
Let’s think about our go-to restaurants and think about how we should describe our taste to be.
Lots of restaurants will tell you that they have the best burger in town. But at Carytown Burger and Fries, they just might. Owner Mike Barber daily buys the best fresh ground beef which he uses to grill your burger to order. This is not a fast food burger restaurant. Nothing gets cooked ahead of […]
Since they opened their second location in the old Fuddrucker’s building near the intersection of Broad and Parham, we’ve been wanting to try Buz and Ned’s. So today, after standing outside a crowded Tae Kwon Do studio next door while my son got his red belt, I kept smelling the great aromas coming from Buz […]

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 […]
On the ever changing landscape of the shopping centers at Stratford Hills, Planet Wings has disappeared and Asian Galaxy has taken its place. Don’t let the commercial exterior fool you. Inside you will find dark wood paneling and a more upscale Asian décor than you might expect. Asian Galaxy is not your run of the […]
