What started as an idea slowly took shape and became the site you are seeing today. We love food. Plain and simple. We are two girls who love to explore and try new things. We are looking to sample what our city has to offer and to share that with our community. We are not chefs, we don’t have culinary backgrounds, but what we do have is passion and a sense of adventure. We hope to share that with you. Our purpose is to give you our honest opinions of what we sample and share our experiences both good and bad. We are here because we want you, our readers, to know what is affordable, what is fun, why should you go out of your way to go to that other part of town, or even to that little corner across the world.
Come with us as we explore the QC and beyond!
Favorite Cuisine: Italian
Favorite Hangout Spots: Dolce Vita and Amelie’s
My professional background is in the international business field, but food is one of my favorite past times! Work and school have allowed me to travel to some awesome places around the world and I have loved being able to get the exposure to different culinary dishes. I think this is one of the reasons why I don’t mind being adventurous and trying all types of food!
My favorite dish has to be wild mushroom pizza, with sushi coming in closely at second place. In fact, I hope to be able to travel to Japan soon enough just to get to try some authentic sushi. As far as hang out spots go I am all about going to chill places where I can sit back and have a good time. I love traveling, spending time with friends and family, discovering new spots around town, movies, and music. I feel that writing about food will soon become another favorite hobby of mine! 🙂
Favorite Cuisines: Thai and Vietnamese
Favorite Breweries in the QC: Wooden Robot and Sycamore
I am a big lover of food and travel. I think that one of the best ways to truly experience a culture is through food. I love trying new things. There is not a dish that I wouldn’t try at least once (I will draw the line at cannibalism!) Whether in my home city, traveling the country, or abroad I make it a goal to taste and experience as much as I can.
I was born in the Dominican Republic but have grown up in Charlotte. I have traveled to Europe, South America, Asia, northern Africa, and the Caribbean and it is one of my goals to hit up every continent. Yes, even that icy place in the South!
One of the reasons Maria and I started this blog is because we are very passionate about food and we love sharing that passion with anyone who will listen. Since our friends are sick of hearing us talk about it, we have decided to take this to a broader audience that can’t tell us to shut up…at least not to our faces 😉 We hope that while you read our posts you feel like you are hearing a friend tell you about their experiences with different restaurants and venues. Cheers and bon appetit!
