Asian Galaxy Review

Asian Galaxy Review

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 […]

Good Times at The Tavern at Triangle Park

Good Times at The Tavern at Triangle Park

Getting into the parking lot at the Tavern at Triangle Park is not the easiest thing to do, and the front of the building doesn’t really tell you what’s inside. When you walk into the Tavern at Triangle Park you listen for your first name. Because, this could very well be the place where everybody […]

At Joe’s Inn, Bon Air, Sunday Brunch is on the Menu

If you’ve lived in Richmond for very long, you’ve likely heard of or been to Joe’s Inn. There are two locations, the Fan on North Shields Avenue and on Buford Road in Bon Air. At Buford Road you can also pick up a carry out of Joe’s signature “Spaghetti a la Joe’s” next door at […]

Fleming’s Prime Steakhouse

Has it really been since the 24th of August that I have written anything?  Time flies when you get a full time job… I apologize for my tardiness in updating this blog but I have exciting news!  EatingInRichmond has earned me a special invitation to a Fleming’s Prime Steakhouse tasting with area media!  How could […]

Richmond Food Carts: Gourmet on Wheels

Richmond Food Carts: Gourmet on Wheels

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 […]

Raw Fish with Rice

Raw Fish with Rice

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 […]

Eating on a Budget in a Budget Friendly Place

Eating on a Budget in a Budget Friendly Place

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 […]

Breakfast: The Most Important, and Sometimes Only Necessary Meal of the Day

Breakfast: The Most Important, and Sometimes Only Necessary Meal of the Day

Richmond is in the Cultural South–the capital of the Confederacy, a group of states that fought to protect their right to work hard and maintain their thriving rural economy without Federal impediment forcing taxes down their throats and taking away their right to own guns or people.  With this focus on hard work and farming […]

July 4th Isn’t the Only Time to Barbecue

July 4th Isn’t the Only Time to Barbecue

Happy belated Independence Day!  Hope you enjoyed the summer heat and a few beverages and something grilled as our founding fathers might have done all those years ago.  Second only to fireworks, barbecuing is among the most important 4th of July traditions–but it should by no means be the only time you light up the […]

Fresh Local Produce in Every Corner of the City

Fresh Local Produce in Every Corner of the City

Hello loyal Richmond eaters and readers.  I apologize for my hiatus from posting but I was visiting Central America for a few weeks seeing what delicious morsels Costa Rica has to offer.  To my chagrin, Costa Rican food, with the obvious exception of fresh fruit, is pretty bland and blasé.  Now I’m back in Richmond […]
