This is where all the “foodie” posts end up…

DIablo & Sons storefront

So you might not be aware of this, I certainly wasn’t until an acquaintance tagged me in a Facebook post, but we’re currently in the middle of Refugee Restaurant Week. Four eateries (Grit American Cuisine in Eagle, Grit 2C in Caldwell, The STIL in Boise, and of course Diablo & Sons because why the hell […]

Deathproof Coffee storefront

First things first: I’m gonna apologize if this post ends up not being up to my usual standards, whatever the hell those are. I did that One Chip Challenge thing last night, and I’ve been a little out of sorts ever since. I didn’t take, and won’t be posting, any video. I wasn’t in it […]

Once upon a time, several years ago, I was planning my first trip to Salt Lake City since I was a kid. While researching eateries, I came across a Yelp listing for a Korean BBQ truck called Cupbop. I didn’t manage to check it out on that trip, or the many subsequent trips that followed. […]

Ramen Sho

So, I’m sure a lot of you are surprised that I haven’t written about Ramen Sho yet, especially considering that I’ve been such a repetitive complainer about the lack of ramen options in the City of Trees and its surrounding areas.  I have gone there (twice now), and I’ve been ruminating over how to approach […]

La Ranchera Market

So I guess I should have posted this on Tuesday because, like, Taco Tuesday.  Well, Wednesday will have to be good enough.  Wait, it’s already so late I probably won’t get it finished and posted until tomorrow, so…Taco Thursday?  Oh screw it, is it ever a bad day for tacos?  Where was I going with […]
