What I like Wednesday: Food Events

We all gotta eat. So why not pay a lot of money and then proceed to stuff yourself for the next two hours? Have I hooked you yet? I realize that's perhaps not the most appealing way I could have introduced the variety of food events and festivals that Denver offers throughout the year. But,…

6-3-21 Memorial Day Weekend 2021

What a wonderful weekend I had. Saturday I met my friend, Meseret, at Thai Pot Cafe, a delicious Thai restaurant you would miss if you didn't know it was there. Thankfully, somehow she found it for us because, while they don't offer yellow curry (my go to), they had a fantastic cashew stir fry that…

What I like Wednesday: Denver’s Vegan Restaurants

I am very grateful that there are a handful of restaurants that are vegan or vegan friendly in and around Denver. Below are my favorite restaurants where I know I will always be able to find something I like. Watercourse: Delicious "chicken" sandwich. Couldn't ask for better (and thank you to the waiter who told…

What I like Wednesday: Denver Restaurant Week

Ace, Eat, Serve Once or twice a year, Denver restaurants put on Restaurant Week. The main event usually happens in February I believe, but this year you can experience the event from April 23 - May 2, 2021. For $25, $35, or $45 per person depending on the restaurant, you can eat food from restaurants…

What I like Wednesday: Denver Desserts

Sometimes, you gotta eat dessert first. And when those days come (or when you're hankering for something sweet at any time), Denver and Aurora have you covered. Sugar Bakeshop: Bakery off of Broadway near downtown. They have the best smore's cookie I have ever tasted. It's one of my all time favorite cookies and I…

2-22-21 Botanicals, bread, & bingo

Bread pre oven I couldn't help myself with an alliteration - botanicals, bread, and bingo - it was just too good to pass up. You're welcome. Yesterday revealed itself to be an overall pleasant day. I'm on steroids for a few days to help with my sensitive tooth (thanks new crown) and so my mood…

What I like Wednesday – Pizza

Everyone likes pizza. I used to hear that phrase and feel annoyed because I didn't really like pizza. I generally don't like tomatoes or tomato based foods and many pizzas I encountered had too much tomato sauce for my liking. But then, a while back, my ex and I did a pizza day where we…

2-8-21

The Nigerian egusi stew and fufu turned out pretty delicious yesterday! The picture definitely doesn't do the taste justice. I was too excited to try it that I didn't really care about getting closer or making it look pretty. The stew is on the right and the fufu is on the left in the picture.…
