out of town dining

Oct/Nov Gavage [So Ba Ramen, The Ordinary, Xiao Bao Biscuit, Varasano's Airport, Corner Pizza, Park 75]

November 11, 2013

   Some miscellaneous shots from the last few weeks, another in the gavage series, if you will. My work schedule and new father life has been crazy, but a blogger’s gotta eat. I went to Maryland for an engagement party (Eastern shore is drop dead gorgeous in the Fall) and my friend Bill gave me […]

Japan: Kyoto

November 5, 2013

Kyoto was probably the city I was most excited to visit as a result of my preparations for our Japan trip. From all I read it seemed a beautiful city, steeped in tradition, with fine food and appreciable culture, while offering a relaxed pace not found in a major megalopolis such as Tokyo,  the type […]

Japan: Osaka

October 31, 2013

This is my first Japan post solely focused on a city. Osaka deserves its own post, because, to put it eloquently, Osaka is the shit. It’s a big city, but not as uptight as Tokyo, and they absolutely love food and having a good time. We stayed in the Dōtonbori area for three nights, which is […]

Japan: Drinks

October 23, 2013

Drinks in Japan deserved a post of its own, because, well, I had a lot of water, sake, beer, liquor, tea, and coffee on the trip. In the photo above I’m just chillin’, drinking green tea in my ryokan in Kyoto watching sumo, which is sort of a fun viewing, even if not completely understood. Much tea […]

October 22, 2013

Ramen was the first food I ate in Japan, a couple hours after we landed and took the train from Narita and on up to Shinjuku, home to many of the tallest buildings in Tokyo and many, many businesses. It was later in the evening, and while Katie rested I walked off towards one of […]

October 14, 2013

I’ve been trying to figure out how I am going to post on last May’s trip to Japan. Yeah, once again it’s another topic that has nothing to do with Atlanta, but these days half of my sparse writings are generally unrelated to the Atlanta area. But food knowledge from the “outside world” influences the […]

Eating Las Vegas (Chada, Jaleo, Lotus, Wing Lei, Public House, Milos)

September 10, 2013

I’m way behind on travel posts. I’ve been meaning to post Vegas pics since January, so that I can post Raleigh/Durham pictures from June, and eventually Japan pictures from May. It’s going to be tough to cover everything I want to say about Japan. For now, there’s Vegas, which the last few years has become […]

on vacation

May 21, 2013

I’ve been out of town, on a long planned vacation to Japan. I have been blown away. Here are a few photos as I probably won’t be posting until I get back next week. But for now, let me just say Japan knows what’s up when it comes to eating and drinking.
