We heard we had to try Bake & Shark in Trinidad and we loved it!! Okay, we didn’t have the shark, we had chicken, and it was amazing! Apparently it’s a combo of any meat fried and the bread is also special (and I think fried too). The real flavor comes in the tamarind, garlic, pepper, and herbal sauces you can squeeze over the meat with the veggies. A perfect pairing for the beach! #ftwi #trinidadandtobago #trinidadfoodie #bakeandshark #peppersauce
We are still trying to find our restaurant staples in the tri valley area. We were really excited to try this new addition - Market Tavern. Their wood burning oven is awesome! We ordered their pizza as a starter and I had their skirt steak. Their pumpkin and pear cake dessert was also incredible and tasted like fall in a bowl 🍁🍂 #ftwi #bayareaeats #bayareafoodie #eastbayeats
When on PTO I tend to have at least one day that I deem “Panda queen for the day 🐼👑”. I’ll go to a new spot for food, probably go shopping for a bit, and get some kind of spa treatment or leisurely self care (run/walk) done. Today I’m so happy I found @bunappetitdonuts.
is amazing and paired with the #vervecoffee
it results in an awesome treat fit for a queen! #ftwi #sffoodie #bayareaeats #donut
We stopped by El Pollo Supremo for a very late breakfast. Okay, I’m not used to having chicken in my first meal of the day, but my fiancé didn’t mind at all 😂 I had rice, beans, and plantains and he had a burrito. Apparently they start cooking the chicken at 9 AM and you can see how productive they are by the chicken stacks almost to the top of the grill! This Mexican/Cuban spot has been around for a while and they don’t miss the mark with their food at all. #ftwi #bayareaeats #sffoodie #plantains #riceandbeans #pollo
Today I had 2 Girl Scout cookies for breakfast, yesterday I had this entourage. It’s hilarious when work breakfasts are more decadent than your breakfast at home. So grateful for my work culinary team. See ya after my PTO ✌🏾#ftwi #workplaceeats #bayareaeats #lifeintech
It was so fun revisiting the first bar that @carowu2
and I ever went to in Manhattan. They use such quality ingredients, you can’t go wrong with anything you order. I stuck to tequila based drinks that played with sweet & spicy, and Caroline’s sesame ice cream based cocktail was incredibly tasty and unique. #ftwi #newyorkeats #foodiesofny #cocktails
Foodie SME @carowu2
at it again. She always brings me to the best spots in NY. Tonight we treated ourselves to a 3 course meal at @ippudony.
We were super impressed by their broth and service. Their pumpkin creme brûlée cake was another show stopper and totally unassuming. We did wait a while to be seated but luckily they have a text service to give you a 5-10 min. heads up before the table is ready. #ftwi #ramen #newyorkeats #nyc #foodiesofny #pumpkin #cremebrulee
Ummm so I never knew pastrami was SO delicious! There’s a Katz’s Deli in Houston that was famous for late night eats - particularly fried pickles and cheesecake milkshakes. Well, when I went to the original in NYC I asked what I should order, and the chef said, “pastrami, we’re famous for it.” Well, it was awesomely delicious. Well 👏🏾 done 👏🏾 Katz’s 👏🏾 Deli #ftwi #nyfoodie #newyorkeats #nyc #pastrami
