Foodie Diaries: Bobbys Burger Palace Yelp Review

Below is the review that I wrote for Yelp. Bobby’s Burger Palace Yelp Review I must admit that I’ve had a crush on Bobby Flay since Food Network first rolled onto the scene.  I’m sad to say that I do not have a crush on Bobby’s Burger Palace located at 2121 K Street, NW, Washington, D.C. I was expecting so much more since it was owned by THE Bobby Flay.  I mean he is an Iron Chef with several restaurants and television shows across multiple Continue reading →

April Sims Food Diaries: The Field House, Philadelphia, PA

The Field House is located 1150 Filbert St, Philadelphia, PA 19107. Which is right across the street (which was reminiscent of a tunnel with a light at both ends of it) from the Reading Terminal Market. The Field House looked like a typical sports bar / pub upon entry. Dark wood tables and chairs every where. They had a small stage in the window. No band that day. Just an empty stage. The bar area was also dark wood (counter top and stools). There were plenty of booths in the bar Continue reading →

April Sims Foodie Diaries: Pat’s vs Geno’s

The BF and I took our first road trip together Wednesday, June 27, 2012. He had been hearing a lot about the infamous Philly Cheesesteak, so I suggested going to Philly to try one. I took him to the two most famous places in Philly for cheesesteaks; Pat’s King of Steaks and Geno’s Steaks; and we decided to do our own Pat’s vs Geno’s comparison. Both places are located across from one another in South Philly at the crossroads of South 9th Street and East Passyunk Continue reading →

April Sims Foodie Diaries: Gordon Biersch Food Review

I went to Gordon Biersch located in Rockville Town Square, after I saw The Avengers … I loved the atmosphere, however the food was mediocre compared to the ambiance that surrounded it. I ordered the Grilled Chicken with roasted veggies. The chicken and veggies were presented to me hidden under a mound of arugula. I was almost afraid to remove the greens. I took a deep breath and removed them, then rearranged the food on my plate so it would make a decent picture. The Continue reading →

April Sims Food Diaries: Copper Canyon Yelp Review

OMG!!! Tommie the server at Copper Canyon Grill made my pre-birthday (day before my birthday) dinner experience a very pleasant and memorable experience. I called the manager over to compliment Tommie to find out he had only been there for a few months. WAYYYYYYY to go Tommie. I ordered the bacon cheeseburger (and added avocado). The burger was grilled to perfection. It went from a huge burger quickly to a burger I had to enjoy with a knife and fork. The bread was so tender. Continue reading →

Foodie Diaries: Fresh Pizzeria Yelp Review

(top l-r: Asian and West Indies pizzas – – bottom l-r: Hawaiian and Jamaican pizzas) Here is the link to my Yelp Review (see below) of Fresh Pizzeria in Rockville, Maryland. http://www.yelp.com/biz/fresh-pizzeria-rockville#hrid:MoGdO3zus3wqFERPLNS3Eg As I entered Fresh Pizzeria I was greeted by a friendly and courteous staff. Fresh Pizzeria is a cute boutique size pizzeria. However, don’t let the size of the pizzeria fool you. The size of this establishment might be small, BUT the taste is huge. I will definitely go back again as well as refer all Continue reading →

Foodie Diaries: Congressional Deli Spinach Omelet and Home Fries

First I must warn you never order this meal if you have to head back to work. I was so full and ready to go to bed after eating this omelet. Anyway, onto the review: This perfectly cooked omelet from Congressional Deli in Rockville, Maryland, consisted of the perfect amount of cheese, spinach and mushrooms. Every bite was so delicious. I was full after half the omelet, but kept eating because the flavors and my taste buds were having a party in my mouth. The Continue reading →

Foodie Diaries: Dave and Busters Bananas Foster Pie

Dave and Busters Bananas Foster Pie Where in the world do I begin. This has to have been one of the most delightful flavor combinations to ever hit my palate. A scrumptious explosion of flavors was released in my mouth with each spoonful of the  creamy delicious banana pudding mixed with the slight crunch of the graham cracker shell, along with the perfect amount of banana rum sauce and fresh sliced bananas. My taste buds were jumping for joy as I savored every delicious spoonful Continue reading →

Foodie Diaries: Congressional Deli Chicken Cheesesteak With Fries

Congressional Deli located in Rockville, Maryland makes the most delicious chicken cheesesteak and french fries. Succulent every time The Deli’s chicken is seasoned and cooked to perfection. The chicken is placed on a toasted sub roll with your choice of toppings. I love lettuce, tomato, mayonnaise, grilled onions and grilled green peppers on my hoagie. I have had the pleasure to devour several chicken cheesesteaks in Philly, and must admit Congressional Deli gives them all a run for their money. This works out for me because Continue reading →
