The Lobster Barn

996 Hancock Street
Abington, MA 
(781) 871-2433

This is great place to visit when in the Boston area. The Lobster Barn is a small building that puts out some great food! When I arrived, I was greeted and helped immediately. I picked my own live lobsters (2), a crab cake and soda. I sat outside on an umbrella covered picnic table. I dug into my crab cake and then the LOBSTER arrived! If you like lobster, this a must.

The Lobster Barn also does carry out orders. They cook lobsters on the hour and half-hour.

1700 Ranch Road 620 N Suite 110
Lakeway, TX 78734 

I had the pleasure of dining at Sobani while I was in Austin, TX last month. If you are ever in Austin, try Sobani in Lakeway, TX for a fantastic food experience. Chef Jon's dishes are beautifully presented and most of all are so yummy!! Sobani has a lunch and dinner menu that has something for everyone.  I was lucky enough during my visit to Sobani to experience a private tasting that was arranged by my friend Britt Figueroa, who is a committee member of the Austin Food & Wine Alliance. The food was outstanding! Check out what I had during my tasting and I encourage you again to visit Sobani when you visit Austin.

The private tasting started with a glass of this tasty bottle of wine. Sobani has a large selection of reds, whites and ports.

First Course
The first course consisted of lobster tail and claw meat sitting on a shallow pool of corn miso and topped with salmon roe and greens. The combination of the sweet lobster meat, corn miso and roe was absolutely delightful.

Second Course

The second course was a pan-seared salmon topped with foie gras and creamed leeks. The saltiness of the foie gras was perfect with the salmon and leeks.

Third Course

The third course was duck con-fi served with crispy pancetta topped with greens and a reduction sauce alongside a perfectly poached egg.


I finished my meal with a raspberry tart and a port. Everything was outstanding!


2409 N Hudson Ave, Oklahoma City, OK 73103
(405) 525-7007

I found this restaurant while I was visiting Oklahoma City. What a find! If you are ever

in this city, please visit Cheever's. Here is what I ate and let me tell you, that it was all delicious.

This was such a refreshing salad. It was made with kale leaves covered with toasted pistachios, grapefruit wedges, caramelized onions, blue cheese, corn and a yummy vinaigrette. 

This is the house special. Chicken Fried Steak with a jalapeno white gravy served on smashed red potatoes. Green onions were added as a tasty garnish. 

The service was quick and very attentive. I would recommend this restaurant to anyone that visits the OKC area.  

The Broken Yolk

11630 Carmel Mountain Rd. 
San Diego, CA 92128
6:00AM - 3:00PM
If you are in the San Diego area, The Broken Yolk is a must for breakfast. They have many locations around town. The menu is outstanding with their spin on eggs Benedict plus made to order omelets! I ordered an egg white omelet with mushrooms, tomatoes and bacon. It was so yummy and I will return on my next visit to San Diego. The staff was extra nice and accommodating. Come hungry because the portions are HUGE!

The Tractor Room

3687 5th Ave, San Diego, CA 92103
(619) 543-1007

If you are looking for a change of pace and you like to taste of wild game and huge portions of meat, then the Tractor Room is the place to go. They have a great happy hour and offer elk, boar and lamb dishes. You can dine in or sit out on the patio to enjoy your meal and or favorite adult beverage. 

I ordered the Wild Boar and mashed potato spring rolls. This dish was outstanding! It is listed under the appetizer section in the menu and the portion size is enough for a meal. The inside is decorated with a wild game theme and makes you fell like you are in a small town. Check it out!

Tita's Kitchenette

2720 E Plaza Blvd
National City, CA 91950
(619) 472-5801

This is one of my favorite restaurants in the San Diego area. Every time I visit, I make the drive to National City to visit this small authentic Filipino gold mine. Tita's is located in a strip mall and is always packed with customers. Tita's looks like a small canteen so if your looking for a fancy dine in place this is not it. The menu changes daily and it is always fresh. The food is tasty, the portions are HUGE and it's super affordable. Leave you credit cards in your wallet/pocketbook because they only accept cash.  

This time I ordered a combo which comes with rice and 2 meat choices. I picked goat and pork adobo. All items can be ordered ala cart (small, medium or large) and the bbq chicken on the stick is one of a kind!

Mary Mervis Delicatessen

Lexington Market
400 Eutaw Street
Baltimore, MD 21201

I love the fact that I have the opportunity to taste all kinds of foods from around the USA. I visited Baltimore recently and went to the famous Lexington Market in downtown. I walked around the market in search of something unique to try. I found Mary Mervis and when I looked at the menu, I saw tounge listed. I had to get it.

I was surprised when I opened my sandwich because it looked and smelled like cornbeef. My sandwich was made on rye bread with swiss cheese and mustard. I took a bite and it was so good! I will most definately return for another sandwich or maybe something else new.
