AST: Custard King

Coastal cities are meant for tourists. Look at the usual food offerings, it makes no sense to serve crab meat, clam chowder and lobster rolls when fishing boats have not docked nearby for decades. These ingredients are probably airlifted from Louisville and Memphis. Both cities are major Fedex/UPS hubs, thus theoretically have some of the […]

PDX: Burger Stevens

For some odd reason, it is difficult to find a delicious burger in Portland. There are plenty of offerings in and around Portland, but none of them seem to be amazing. To be fair, I had not have the opportunity to visit many sit down restaurants that have appeared on lists, all thanks to the […]

PDX: Skyline Restaurant

Hiking is fun but can be difficult sometimes. I like to joke with passing hikers, asking if there is a Starbucks or a McDonald’s in the middle of nowhere. So far, I have not seen such a shop in the wilderness, and that is not surprising. That is why I was shock to learn that […]

PDX: Stoopid Burger

The quest to look for the next good burger continues in Portland. Megan knew just the place, Stoopid Burger. I thought the name is really funny but did not think hard of the connotation. Maybe the owners imagined themselves to have a weird sense of humor? See, I like to divide burgers into two categories. […]

PDX: Trifecta Tavern

The first thing that comes to mind of a tavern is a drinking hole. So, it is weird that this tavern resembles more a fancy upscale gastropub than one that is somber and filled with depressed people. Time changes all things, including the very definition of words. I assume if beer continues to pour, one […]

IAD: Good Stuff Eatery

Obama ate here, ’nuff said. A block from Capitol Hill, Good Stuff Eatery is literally behind his backyard. You know what, it is so good that my Vegan friends brought me here; I only found about the president’s love after that. And unlike a certain some president, who eats well-done steak with ketchup, President Obama’s […]

Wilmington, DE: Grub Burger Bar [Short]

In my opinion, Grub Burger Bar is a chain that serves one of the better, if not best, burgers and shakes in the country. Their menu is pretty creative and extensive, and the one in Wilmington even serves cocktail (like a bar!) I ordered the E.T. milkshake, which is half the price of Black Tap’s […]

Adamstown, PA: Boehringer’s Drive-In

Adamstown, located between Reading and Lancaster, seems like a sleepy town. The road that connects those two cities acts as the main street, which to the untrained eyes, look like the usual rusting old American cities with a dying population. This is the capital of antiques shops, where there are dozens of malls, each filled […]
