Moving to a new city is a big change. Streets are different, people are different, even the food may be different. Here in Greensboro, we are lucky enough to have some phenomenal restaurants around that have a wide range of options, from the “wine and dine” types to greasy finger foods. Here in Greensboro, we’ve got you covered.
- My Absolute Favorite –
I love steak. Finding a good steak at a chain restaurant can be tough at times, and usually expensive. There is one hidden gem that may be more common than I realize, but it is Darryl’s Wood Fired Grill, a restaurant in the heart of Greensboro offering casual dining at an affordable price. Darryl’s is by far some of the best food I have had at a chain restaurant, and their service is great. The atmosphere is something that is unlike anyplace else I have been before. They have the usual chain restaurant décor with their own twist. Outside is a fire pit perfect for roasting marshmallows (especially after our bitter cold winter).
If there is one thing tourists travelling to Singapore do not know, it is that we Singaporeans love food. Be it late night or the wee hours of the morning, there will always be an eatery or food joint ready to serve customers at its door.
Newton Circle, Geylang and Lau Pa Sat are some places well-known for their lip-smacking delicacies, but you can always go beyond these. If you travel into the heartland of the local residential areas, you are sure to chance upon a little haven that serves great food. One of these areas would be Kovan. It used to be a part of Hougang. Today, it is regarded as a food haven by many.
The region of Kovan borders the Upper Serangoon Road. It is quiet during the day and on weekdays, but comes alive on weekends, particularly at night, as people come to look for late-night treats. There are many family-run businesses here along with a number of small cafés and restaurants. At these cafés and restaurants, one can get a taste of Western cuisine and
I suppose you have heard a lot about the famous grilled burgers of the Bite Club at Boracay. If you are wondering if the burgers are really worth digging into or not, this article is going to help you make the right decision.
There were both good and bad things about these burgers. I am going to share both with you:
- a) Tasty Burgers With Nice Toppings: The grilled burger was one of the tastiest burgers I and my family have ever enjoyed. I have been back from there about two months ago and even today I pine to get back there and taste them again. The burgers were filled with mozzarella on one hand and on the other they also came with a lot of extra chips inside. To top it all, the entire burger was filled with cheese! My kid loved the flavor of mozzarella. I liked the fact that they were quite spicy (I love spicy food). My wife has a soft corner for cheese. Needless to say, the taste buds
“Do you think you will able to dine out on this experience with your friends in Brisbane?” I asked Jane who was visiting from Australia. She sat next to me, but I couldn’t see her as the room was pitch black, of the “can’t see your hand in front of your face” variety.
“Absolutely,” she replied.
Dine in the Dark is an innovative restaurant in Phnom Penh, Cambodia that creates the experience of what it is like to eat a meal as a blind person. Phones, watches and any other things that might produce light have to be surrendered into a locked box in the lobby. The meal choices are western, Khmer and vegetarian. Grant, Jane and I ordered Khmer. Nick – who is Khmer – opted for western. Then Joe, our waiter/guide, introduced himself. We later learned he went blind three years ago from chicken pox.
The manager had me put my hand on Joe’s shoulder and the others lined up behind me. No problem slowly making our way up the stairs behind Joe. Then we went through a heavy curtain. As it draped closed behind us we were in total darkness. My initial
The rising popularity of bars has brought with it a range of decors, friendly ambience and people who visit. Most bars are modeled in a way to cater to the Indian crowd in international ways. They look forward to tend to a specific clientele and provide an enjoyable atmosphere. However, to savvy you on deciding what would suit your mood today, here is a quick description on the kind of bars, what to expect there and how to dress up.
These were old English countryside pubs that served ale with a brief menu. The contemporary forms have diversified the menu vastly, and serve a variety of liquor-based and non-alcoholic drinks. However, most of these have preserved the ambience, with classic wood furniture, light and jovial country music. These often feature live performances and an environment that is suitable to engage in conversations. They are apt for an after-work get-together with friends, where you can sit and chit-chat. The way you dress up should be casual and stylish. A quick party can be planned at these.
These are the all-time favorites of most people amongst bars. As the name suggests, these

While we’ve all heard that Las Vegas was once known for their .99 buffets.
Times have now changed, tables are now turned and it has become a food lovers paradise! Culinary artists from around the globe have all landed in this desert oasis.
Now, once upon a time ago being a vegan wasn’t an easy gig (that’s not why we do it), and being a vegan in Vegas was quite a headache (as well as a starving belly ache), especially for someone like me who doesn’t like to drive in this town. I say park your cars and get out there on foot (just make sure you’re not wearing ankle breaker heels!) Anyhow, eating on the strip was never an option for me and if I wanted to eat something more than iceberg lettuce and not go hungry – I had to go off strip. Which as I previously explained wasn’t my preference.
So a few years ago I had come to find out that Steve Wynn became a Vegetarian, (yay – one less meat eater in this world – ooops did I actually type that) and when he couldn’t even find dining options in
The Texas food community in unlike any other, especially in cities like Fort Worth.

For starters, Reata and Bonnell’s Fine Texas Cuisine are two Fort Worth restaurants worth visiting if you’re in the area.
Although several Fort Worth restaurants offer amazing food to patrons, let’s cover some of what Reata has to offer. Reata is known for offering legendary Texas cuisine. On Sundance Square’s website, Reata is the first restaurant to be listed when searching for quality.

Desirable living climbs a notch further with the gastronomic delights that Coconut Creek has to offer. Based on its official website, the city has about 70 spots for dining and eating. They range from fine-dine restaurants, pastry shops, quick service kinds, and cafés. If you’re a cookie and you want your taste buds to tickle, here are some worthy stops.

There are also great wine selections of which the bar tenders are real experts.

With so much to do and so many places to visit in Las Vegas you will be so busy you may forget to eat. However, Vegas has a restaurant for every culture you can think of and thousands of restaurants and food outlets available. This means that you will never even see or hear of over 90% of them, and you could be missing out on some real gems. Most of the hotels serve cuisine in relation to what the theme of the hotel is, so if you like Italian you can go and visit the Venetian, but sticking solely to the large casino hotels for your food will prove to be an expensive business, there are a lot better value places around Las Vegas.
For those people who love Japanese food then you will not go wrong here. Situated on Mountain Road, food can start at $7 here. There is not a great selection but the food that they do serve is fabulous, and nearly all reviews are positive. A lot of people recommend the char sui as well as the pork bone broth which is their specialty.
If you ever find yourself wanting to explore the boundaries of culinary innovation, you should consider going to some of these exciting restaurants to grab a bite to eat. In the past, innovation in the cooking world may have been a new convection oven, or maybe a deep fryer that conserves the use of oil. However, there are some places that really push the limit of both making a futuristic eating atmosphere as well as advanced methods of food preparation.
One aspect of futuristic restaurants is the innovations in service and how food is ordered and delivered. In Dubai, the Ebony Interactive Restaurant has embraced this approach. People visiting the venue can expect to be able to order off of menus that are displayed in the tables. Not only is ordering a simple hand-swipe away, visitors can watch their food being prepared on the screens. This feature is probably great for those who are especially interested in who is handling their meals and what goes into the preparation process. In addition to these features, patrons can change the color and pattern of their tablecloth with a simple click, and even order taxis.
Futuristic restaurants cannot be
Most of us have a favorite restaurant, the one specific place that we always go to because we’re familiar with their menu and have made a tradition of eating there. While having a favorite restaurant is certainly comfortable, why not take things up a notch and consider eating at one of the most unique dining establishments in the world? From enjoying gourmet dishes under the water to being served your dinner by a ninja, many of these businesses are worth taking a trip. Read on for some suggestions.
Rangali Island Resort offers a truly one-of-a-kind dinner experience. This intimate space is located 16 feet underwater and is encased in a transparent acrylic roof, which offers a panoramic view of the fish and sea animals swimming in the Maldives’ gorgeous waters.

Unfortunately, the salt water is slowly breaking down the structure, so make sure to get your reservation in while you still can!

You know what irritates me when I travel? Being a vegan and not finding a good restaurant to satisfy my growling stomach and being a Muslim having to find Halal food is a big task in itself. When I visited Japan I had no idea I’d find vegan restaurants so easily and finding halal restaurants in Japan is a piece of cake nowadays since the government has announced Muslim friendly policies. All I had to do was a simple Google search on the super fast internet in Japan and there was a huge list of Halal Vegetarian restaurants in Japan. Out of the many choices, I found these three the best. Go ahead and read my reviews on these famous Halal restaurants in Japan.

Just because you love to cook does not mean you like to do so every day. However, it can be difficult to determine where to go when you want someone else to do the cooking. So how do you pick the best restaurants for your situation?
Outing with Kids
If you have kids, you know how stressful it can be to go out to eat. You ask them to behave and most of the time they do. However, there is always a chance that something will go horribly wrong. When selecting the best restaurants to go to with your family, do your homework. Not all places cater to children. Some state this fact plainly, while others are more subtle. Look at the menu online before you go. If there is not a specific children’s menu, it might be in your best interest to skip that establishment if you have a tiny one.
You should be considerate of the staff and other diners while you are there and make sure to bring things to help keep your kids entertained while they wait on dinner. Some family-friendly places will provide crayons and color sheets.

This has as much to do with preparing food and learning about the culture behind each dish and place. Not to mention the pleasure of the journey and getting to know each city intimately, as opposed to flying to ten different destinations just for the tourist attractions.
The single most popular type is culinary tourism. This can be in the form of visitors getting a package deal which includes a resort stay, free meals and cooking classes taught by expert chefs. It could also be a tour of a region famous for its culinary offerings, like Italy’s Tuscany, France’s Loire, California’s Napa Valley or Australia’s Hunter Valley.
Typical Costa Rican food or “Comida tipica” is usually very simple, as the usual meal is made up of rice, beans, salad and some type of meat. Rice and beans are staple foods in Costa Rica. Gallo Pinto, the national dish of fried rice and black beans is particularly served as a breakfast. Almost every restaurant, including fast food places (such as McDonalds and Burger King) offer gallo pinto at breakfast. At lunch Gallo Pinto becomes “Casado” which is rice and beans, a side of salad, fried plantains, and meat. Vegetables do not form a large part of the Costa Rican diet; however fruit such as melons, papaya, mango and pineapple are common snacks. Costa Rica food is usually fried, contributing to the high population of overweight people in the country.
Other popular Costa Rican food dishes include “arroz con atun” or tuna rice, “arroz con pollo” which is rice with chicken mixed together, “pollo sudado” which is chicken made in a pot with achote and other spices.
Acohte, lizano sauce, and cilantro are common spices used in Costa Rican food. Travellers who are allergic should check the menu or ask the waiter before trying food
