AboutEating my way through the Big Apple and around the world.
Always in favor of extraordinary flavor versus saving a few calories, I’m constantly seeking the best restaurants, recipes, and random little food finds. This blog chronicles my discoveries, most of which are located in New York City, the foodie heaven I am fortunate to call home.
I am an editor at Zagat, but all opinions on this blog are mine and have nothing to do with my employer.
I take my photos with a point-and-shoot Canon PowerShot SD850. Which goes to show that if you're passionate about photography but can't afford fancy camera equipment, you can still take quality photos.

Hello Chowers! I’m off to research my next foodie travel destination—Madison, Wisconsin! Where should I eat while I’m there for three days? Where’s the best fish fry?
Trocadero could not have been a better choice for the morning after. Not only did they have several inventive bloody marys, but a mojito menu, too! And the place is huge, so no need to throw ‘bows or wait in line for hours. Hmmm, now isn’t that nice? Check out the entire menu, it’s insane! I didn’t realize until later that it’s a sister restaurant to my other Milwaukee fave, Cafe Benelux.
Banana Coconut Pancakes (caramelized bananas and shredded coconut), Breakfast Tacos (scrambled eggs, chorizo, rosemary potatoes, white cheddar cheese, warm flour tortillas, and pico de gallo), Almost French Toast (baked butterscotch bread pudding, caramel sauce, sea salt, candied walnuts, and blackberries), Cafe Trocadero (coffee, steamed milk, chocolate, and cinnamon)
On Wednesday nites, downtown Green Bay hosts a cute little farmers’ market. The market works to showcase local farmers, and also to revitalize the downtown district, which is currently going through a nice renaissance.
With so many farmers in the area, Broadway was packed with produce—I’ve never seen so much asparagus and strawberries! But the real winner for me was O So Good Kettle Corn. Every kernel was popped to maximum fluffiness and was perfectly sweet-and-salty seasoned. Hands down the best popcorn I’ve ever tasted.
I’m so proud that my hometown has the second largest farmers’ market in all of Wisconsin!
