dallas: nobu

After dining here a few times, I can confidently say that Nobu has some nice food, but I am not going to lie to you - Nobu is a straight-up DINING EXPERIENCE.

Houston Dessert Review: Flower & Cream

Flower & Cream - now a name like that just makes you think of something subtle and understated, doesn’t it? But trust me, the Artisan Ice Cream from Flower & Cream is jam packed with flavor and size. Annie and I first stumbled upon Flower & Cream one quiet night in Houston, and we were just craving for ice cream. We found a nice ice cream shop with good reviews that was also close to the Texas Medical Center, so we decided to give it a try.

Recipe: Michael’s Cup o’ Jo’

Covfefe - some love it; others can’t live without it (I’m looking at you David 🤧). But we can all agree coffee is good; coffee lets us work harder for longer and it just gives us a boost when we need it the most. And for a grad and medical school student pairing, we sure do treasure our coffee. This admiration (and lowkey obsession) are why we wanted to share with you guys our way of crafting the ultimate Cup O’ Jo’ - pourover edition :).

dallas: R+D kitchen

R+D Kitchen lies right across a personal favorite of mine - Hillstone. These upscale restaurants are not only in the same relaxing, homey environment, but they also share the same nice and expansive parking lot. So you and your homies can come whenever and valet won’t be necessary here.

Houston Restaurant Review: Local Foods

I admittedly haven’t ever put much thought into the food called sandwich. To me, a sandwich is something that’s quick to fix up and great for only when I’m in a hurry; it really has never been something for me to focus on. Now that sounded blasphemous probably, didn’t it? But let me tell you --Local Foods has opened my eyes, broadened my horizons, and most of all, deepened my appreciation for anything placed between two slices of bread. Oh and Local Foods has just amazing sandwiches, salads, and even a lovely artisan market.
