My Favorite Things
This is a random list of memorable places I've eaten during my travels over the years. If you haven't figured it out by now, I'm something of a foodie, budding oenophile, and chocoholic. (well, maybe not a chocoholic. I just like to self-medicate. Often.)
Grateful Head Pizza Oven
Broken Bow, OK
Addis Red Sea Ethiopian Restaurant
Zaytinya - authentic mezze, or Mediterranean tapas
Tamarind Indian Restaurant
New York, NY
Brix Restaurant and Wine Shop
The Clay Pit Indian Restaurant
There's a funny story attached to this one. I always go to The Clay Pit when I'm in Austin. Last time I visited, due to poor wardrobe planning and a bird under the Congress Ave. bridge who decided to gift me with a fly-by bombing, I showed up at the restaurant in bird-crapped cycling shorts and serious helmet head. Fortunately, the staff took pity on me and still served me their delicious Indian cuisine.
The Most Interesting Beer in my Fridge:
Birra Moretti "La Rossa." I stumbled upon this at Oliver's Fine Foods one evening.
Gourmet Chocolate of the Moment:
Gudrun Assorted Belgian Chocolates - I bought a box at the Central Market Chocolate Festival a couple weeks ago. Yuuum.
