Koh Tao – Beach Club By Haadtien Restaurant

Capri - Aglio oglio
Koa Tao

 

In the small island Koh Tao that’s in Thailand in a beautiful hotel located in shark bay called “Beach club by haadtien” there’s the most romantic beautiful Italian restaurant right on the beach named ‘Capri’.
The place is designed so that even if all the tables are full you would still fell as if you’re there only with the person you came with.
All tables are facing the ocean so as well as a romantic mood you get to see the best view.
The restaurant specializes in pizzas of all kinds. They have a brick oven where they bake the pizzas right after you order.

We ordered the vegetarian pizza. It comes with onions, peppers, tomatoes and mushrooms all on a crispy crust with amazing tomato sauce and fresh mozzarella. Best pizza I ever had in Thailand! for a minute I actually thought I was in Italy.

The restaurant also has a large selection of pasta. We tried the ‘Aglio Oglio’. The sauce on this pasta is olive oil, garlic, chili flakes and of course graded parmigiana cheese.
This dish was incredible. The pasta was cooked perfectly and had so much flavor.

The service in ‘Capri’ is also worth mentioning, the staff was very nice and we got everything we wanted without waiting even though the restaurant was full.

I would go back to ‘Capri’ without a doubt!
For the romantic atmosphere, for the beautiful view, for the good service but most of all for the amazing food. It’s definitely worth traveling to Koh Tao for.

Buffalo – Frank & Teressa’s Anchor Bar

The United States is known for many great food dishes. Depending on what part of the country you’re in will determine what might be the top recommendation on the menu.

When you are in Buffalo, New York the favorite dish on the menu is chicken wings. If you are a local, then you just call them wings, but if you’re passing through you might call them Buffalo wings, hot wings or a combination of the two. And, if you’re local, you’ll know exactly where to get the best ones, really cheap almost every night of the week.

I highly recommend the Spicy Hot BBQ chicken wings from the Anchor Bar in Buffalo, NY which claims to be Home of the Original Chicken Wing’. While their original sauce is famous around the world, I really like the sweetness the BBQ sauce adds to the flavor, it also cuts a little bit of the heat. Ever wonder why wings are served with celery and carrots? They help cool your mouth from the spicy heat of the hot sauce, especially when dipped in blue cheese dressing!

There are plenty of ways to order your wings, I prefer mine cooked extra crispy, extra saucy. Cooking for the extra few minutes ensures the fat on the wing is crispy rather rubbery, and the meat generally falls off the bone this way. Extra saucy? Well, who wouldn’t want extra sauce?

In Buffalo its traditional for wings to come with blue cheese dressing on the side, however, you can order ranch dressing if blue cheese isn’t your style. They will know you’re not local, but better to order what you like than suffer through blue cheese if you hate it!

If it’s your first time I recommend ordering a mix of medium wings and BBQ wings to get started. If you can handle the heat, you can always ask your server to bring out the hot sauce to try, just remember to ask them for extra celery!

La Cocina Bar and Grill
La Cocina Bar and Grill

 

Food and drink have become a major part of most people’s lives, in particular their social lives. Temecula restaurants offer dining experiences to satisfy every taste and budget. From upscale to casual, sophisticated to kid-friendly, and exotic to traditional, Temecula dining is as diversified and flavorful as its world famous wine selections.

International. Savor a little taste of Italy, spice it up with some Thai or Indian cuisine, experience authentic Japanese or Chinese dishes, and sample some sizzling Mexican fare. Whatever your mood dictates, Temecula provides.

One of my personal favorites is La Cocina Bar And Grill. It is Temecula’s authentic Mexican restaurant. Every meal is prepared fresh, never pre-made. It’s a great family run restaurant in the southern area of Temecula with customers known by their names and faces. Crowds come in for the great food as well as the atmosphere. Service and attention to detail is what makes the La Cocina Bar And Grill one of Temecula’s favorite Mexican restaurants.

Traditional. If you are looking for more traditional or American cuisine, Temecula restaurants offer everything from relaxing steakhouses to popular burger joints. Enjoy a southern barbeque, sample a variety of seafood choices, or nibble on a light lunch at an outdoor cafe.

I highly recommend the Liberty Kitchen Restaurant. Though the menu is limited, the ingredients are high quality and cooked to delicious perfection. The whole dining experience from food presentation to service is excellent.

Wineries. Temecula is famous for its wines, and several vineyards have their own restaurants, many with 5 or 6 star ratings. Complete your wine tour with an elegant meal prepared by celebrity chefs or dine alfresco while admiring beautiful sunsets and breathtaking scenery. Some winery restaurants are very sophisticated and romantic, requiring evening attire, while others are quaint bistros with a more casual atmosphere. And since each winery designs the menu to match perfectly with their own wines, you will enjoy exceptional wine and food pairings.

Bistro Champagne at Thornton Winery gives an amazing access to the Temecula Valley Wine Country. Year cycle, seven days a week, honor winning Executive Chef Steve Pickell joins “Contemporary Fusion Cuisine” with premium wines in a rich yet non-particular air making a balanced pizza’s for the aggregate gourmet experience. Expect four-star cooking, a reasonable menu, and educated staff.

Whether you are enjoying a romantic retreat, a family vacation, or a corporate event, Temecula restaurants provide the ideal dining atmosphere. Choices range from casual and fun to cozy and intimate. With family owned and operated cafes, popular bars and grills, buffets, fine dining, and ethnic cuisine, the options are so varied that you will have to stay a week just to sample everything available.

From high end to family affordable, Temecula serves up spectacular menus that will please any palate.

So, if you are seeking an intimate romantic setting, a fun family diner, or a quiet cozy cafe nestled within some of nature’s most stunning scenery, Temecula restaurants are ready and waiting to provide exceptional dining experiences that will be as memorable as they are delicious.

Phoenix – Oregano’s Pizza Bistro

OreganosPizza

 

 

Hey, are you craving for a upbeat family-friendly restaurant in Arizona? Then, Oregano’s Pizza Bistro is for you.

Oregano’s Pizza Bistro is a family-friendly restaurant that specializes in Italian entrees specially the iconic pizzas. But, this restaurant takes this defintion to a different level like Chicago style. For example, the pizzas can be served in thin chest(the classic version), Pan pizzas, and lastly stuffed pizzas.

The thin crust pizzas is your standard flat crust pizza that can offered as cheese only or if its not enough for you, you can add topples to your heart’s content.

The pan pizzas is a flaky crust size of the thin crust where its even more thickly and cheesier than its thinner brother.

Lastly, the stuffed pizza is like it sounds, its a deeper dish added the homemade crust and fill it with cheese and fresh ingredients and then covered it with a layer of thin crust and top it with a tangy sauce(boy that’s a lot of tomato sauce to be put on there).

All of these three pizzas’ chesses are the not ones that you can find at grocesy stores, they are all made from the lovely state of Wisconsin. It sounds like you want to go there now don’t you.

I have both good and bad news. The bad news is the business is only exclusive in Arizona, but for Arizonan natives your in luck.

The restaurants are currently opened for sixteen stores in Arizona.

The business has been going strong for almost twenty-three years now so it definitely reflected all of the entrees that I mentioned early. But, are you still carving for a delicious dessert, don’t they got you covered! They offer the infamous, but sweet pizooke. The pizooke is cookie version of the pizza, but it much sweeter. The pizooke is offered for three flavors, the original chocolate chip, peanut butter, and lastly the caramel chocolate. All of these flavors taste fantastic when you try it yourself.

So what are you waiting for?  go on down and get your tank filled with Oreganos pizza today.

London – The Black Lion Restaurant

The-Black-Lion
The-Black-Lion

I recently have a new favorite spot located along Kilburn High Road in London, UK. The Black Lion Restaurant is an incredible restaurant with a menu that caters for customers between all ages. The restaurant and pub is situated opposite the Tricycle Theater olong Kilburn High Road, hence attracting people using the theater.

Despite the fact that the restaurant has been in operation for a long time, it still attracts customers from many parts of the world mainly because of the quality of their foods and their wide variety of wines.

The chef is excellent at making British classics as well as foods from different cultures. As such, the restaurant attracts a broad range of customers.
I love the fact that the pub combines both a dining area and a bar. The Black Lion brings together the tradition of a classic English pub with freshly cooked English and British fresh food and a fabulous wine list. There is also a separate menu for children hence giving families a chance to spend time together at the restaurant.

I particularly love oven baked Gressingham duck breast. This is usually accompanied by sweet potato gratin. The best parts of my meals is the top pudding with my favorite being the vanilla crème brûlée.
Other great items on the menu include starters such Guam salad.

The main menu is made up of food items such as Black Lion fish and chips, vegetarian and beef burgers, honey roast parsnips, broccoli, and pancetta and grilled polenta stack, all at very affordable prices. Cakes and ice cream are also available. The restaurant serves all children meals with some ice cream.
The restaurant opens on all days and has excellent staff who welcome customers warmly and serve them meals as ordered. This great customer staff relationship, and the good quality foods make the service worth the amount paid for.

I would recommend the restaurant for couples going on dates, or families who want to spend time and share meals and drinks together.

Nairobi – SAROVA STANLEY HOTEL

Pilau

Food is bae’ is a phrase I would use when it comes to my perspective of food. I mean, I like diversity and when I find a dish that fascinates me, I usually write a review and try the dish more often. What interested me of late in my travels is a dish I was served in Sarova Hotel. The Hotel is located in Nairobi, Kenya. You just take an eight minute walk from Kenya Convection centre.

I usually like a personalized service because of my eating habits, I enjoy savouring every drop of greatness in a tantalizing meal. I got to see how the meals were being made. I had never felt myself as a part of the kitchen in my life before. I got to have real insights into the cuisines. I just had to book a room to have the same experience all over again.

Back to the dish that fascinated me, it is called was Pilau that was side punched with Chutney Masala. Every bite of this dish felt like small drops of heaven. I felt like digging into my plate more and more but again I did not want the taste to cease on my buds that fast. I was forced to have two plateful of the dish. On top of that the service of the hotel was like no other I had seen. It was so distinctive. The dress code of the waiters, the nuance of their language and etiquette.

To those who might be wondering how the chutney Masala and Pilau is prepared, I asked one of the chefs who advised me to follow Chef Ali’s recipe. It is the one that most hotels use for themselves. He has a blog where he posts most recipes. Nonetheless, the chefs that work in Sarova are amongst the top chefs in the country.

And the side punch (Chutney Masala)
