Champy’s Chicken on MLK

Champy’s Chicken on MLK in Chattanooga is a restaurant known for, you guessed it, its Fried Chicken.  Despite rave reviews from friends, I never ate at Champy’s until about a year ago.  By the time I finally tried Champy’s it already had multiple locations including a couple in Alabama and one in Georgia. It is now […]

West Wing Cafe III in Washington, D.C.

I have been open about how little I thought of the food scene in Washington, D.C. especially in the early 1980’s.  Nothing brought home how much things had changed than my last trip to D.C. when I stayed at the same hotel as I did in 1984 on my first trip to D.C.  Then, I […]

Sweet Hut Bakery and Cafe

Have you ever been so far behind you thought you were ahead?  Well, that is the best description of me right now.  I am so far behind on blog posts that I am embarrassed.  However, I am going to do my best to get caught up..starting in the Atlanta area (a few months ago). One […]

Thai Island in Orlando

Whenever we travel to tourist hot spots, we try and go to as many off-the-beaten path, local restaurants as we can when we eat out.  The Disney area of Orlando, Florida is definitely one of those tourist destinations that had us going off the tourist beaten path looking for a Mom and Pop type spot.  Thai […]

And Pizza

&Pizza was on my list of places I wanted to try when we visited Washington, D.C.  I did not really make an actual plan to go there though.   Although I always have used a combination of the Metro and walking to get around D.C., this trip I actually paid (if you know me you know that […]

Lincoln’s Waffle Shop

Our trip to Lincoln’s Waffle Shop may not have happened had it not been for the fire alarm going off at Ford’s Theater…we were running late and just arrived in time for our 10 a.m. tour only to find we could not go in. Thus, we headed across the street to the unassuming looking restaurant […]

The Orange Cow in D.C.

I must tell you that from my first stay in Washington D.C. in the mid-1980’s until the sometime in the 2000’s I cringed when I thought of eating in D.C. My first experiences were so bad that I completely lacked objectivity when it came to dining in the United States’ capital. It was not until […]
