You can enter to win a one-night stay at the hotel plus dinner for two at Evoke. ❤️ I had the pleasure of eating at Evoke last night, and it was such a great experience. I’ve… Continue reading Enter to win this Valentine’s Day Giveaway!
Update [7/10/18]: I’m extremely sad to say that iPho closed its doors at the end of May 2018. I’m keeping my fingers crossed that they’ll re-open somewhere else in Charlotte! If you follow me on Instagram, you know I’m in LOVE with iPho. This Vietnamese restaurant has been open on Park Road for a little… Continue reading More Than Just Pho at iPho
It’s time again for another look at Evoke’s menu! I love that they change each spring and fall (and really love sampling the new items.) At this spring’s tasting, we were introduced to the new chef de cuisine, Rodrigo Velazco. Chef previously worked at Vivace and is now bringing an “old school meets new school” menu… Continue reading #ExperienceEvoke Spring Menu
Took a little hiatus – sorry y’all, too busy eating! I’m back to talk about a place I talk about A LOT: Ilios Noche ❤ The first time I ate here last actually last fall for a menu tasting. And now it’s one of my favorite spots. Per usual, they added a few goodies to the… Continue reading New Items on Ilios Noche’s Fall Menu
Is it just my opinion, or does the Epicentre feel a little overwhelming at times? Sure, it’s full of great places to dine and drink, but sometimes that leaves me unsure of where to go. Too many options, I guess. I notice Vida Cantina every time I visit this adult playground but had never ventured inside…… Continue reading Tacos are life. Check out Vida Cantina & Vida Vida.
I have one too many “nice” restaurants on my bucket list. It’s pretty unrealistic and will probably take me years to visit them all, but I’m determined. So when my roomie came home with a $100 gift card to Evoke and asked me to help her use it, I was like, YUP. (Like she had a… Continue reading Evoke Your Taste Buds
As you know, I’ve been to many restaurants in Charlotte. I think I’ve done a pretty good job of trying something new at least once per week. But there are SO many places to visit and so many neighborhoods in this city. It’s hard to keep up, even for a hungry girl like me. So when I was… Continue reading On the Right Trail
I have way too many restaurants on my bucket list. And Ilios Noche has been high on that list for quite a while. I finally ate at Ilios a few weeks ago, and it was delicious. We shared 6 different small plates so we could get a bite of several items. From the zucchini and… Continue reading Where to Eat This Fall: Ilios Noche
Update [7/10/18]: Zebra is now closed. 😦 As you may or may not know, I’ve only lived in Charlotte for just under a year. But I’ve visited this city many times – especially for shopping trips to SouthPark Mall. On several trips, I noticed the “Zebra” sign across the street and never quite knew what… Continue reading Zebra Switches Its Stripes
So I know everyone in Charlotte is PUMPED about Chopt. With lots of locations up north, Chopt is not a new restaurant, but down here we’re freakin’ out about it!!! For example: Chopt opened in Park Road Shopping Center on Saturday, and I’ve already been twice. When we walked in, we were immediately greeted by friendly, helpful… Continue reading Is it weird to be obsessed with salads?
