Even though I’ll be going to a beachy vacation soon, I can never say no to a mid day ice cream treat! This ice cream was so good! The strawberry almond cheesecake & hello summer (cream cheese & lemon vase + graham cracker crust + blueberry swirl). Mmmmm! She said it was their 2 most popular, I can see why! I preferred the Hello Summer, but they were both so good. Subtle sweet, graham cracker, uhhh, so good! I loved it!
I should hate when I’m so excited about eating that I forget to take photos of the food, I was very excited and the food did not disappoint, but the bill is never fun to get at Izakaya Wa, $40 yikes! And I was just paying for myself! And this does not include tip.
One, very descriptive word comes to mind...yumalicious!
2 great ways to boost your day/week:
1. A cold shower 2. Sweat 1000 ...or do both!
Wake up Wednesday!
Like nothing ever happened...only took a year, but they are back up and in soft opening stage. Beef Pho has changed, no more Filet Mignon meat and everything else seemed super fatty. I think the honeymoon is over, but I still think it’s a great option for Vietnamese food.
I haven’t been back here since they opened and man, food is expensive for lunch. The it quality seems high, excellent choice for healthy food eaters...still mostly women patrons.
I loved it, it was great! My first time and 2 friends with kids also joined and they agreed, all loved it! I just wished we hadn’t had to leave. We were not quite prepared. Though they had 2 food trucks, looked like everyone else brought food and picnicked. Super fun, $20 per person, but really experience. Y most favorite part seeing my 2.5 year old picking fruit, we all really loved the experience! I would highly recommend.
Honestly, it was all just ok. My vanilla latte didn’t have that much character and the desserts looked ok. My breakfast croissant was good. All just status quo...
Really I stopped in because I saw these super adorable succulents. The guy at the cashier says, we do sell those, but we actually sell food...made me laugh actually, and I decided to take a look, everything really just appealed to my simple design senses. The food looked great, I got the Chicken w/ Apple & Pecans, which was nice and clean. The chocolate chewy cookie he let me try was delicious, in a healthy way. So super cute, love this place! And I purchased 2 succulents and my bill came out to almost $100, yikes! One of the succulents was $55 in a glass casing, expensive but I couldn’t resist. I had a home just in mind for this one. The other itty bitty one was $22, so between the 2 plants that was most of it. Great place, I love it!
First time, can you believe? Well, at this location. I had been when the owner was ina cart on Westheimer. Super cool guy, very nice and personable. Very chic inside, and my Nutella and Strawberry crepe was nice.
I like revisiting places I kind of had written off. Kraftsmen is one of those places. I’m really loving the building, especially after I had visited one of the businesses in it’s office spaces. Today back at Kraftsmen, I’m definitely feeling their vibe. Menu seems better too, 2 tacos and coffee for $10...I’m really liking those prices. Super comfortable inside, I could sit around awhile. I think they need to umph up the section with the long bench, and staff was kind of so so, but overall very nice atmosphere.
Nice little breakfast spot in the Heights. The sausage and cheese Kolaches are good and everything else is pretty tasty too, but I would ask them to warm it up well, they don’t taste good cold. The cinnamon rolls are so so good!
More fun than an actual good workout, but it was a nice activity to do with my little one. He doesn’t get out much so it was nice to bring him out and have this alone time with him. At 11 months he was the oldest baby there, mostly newborns, but it was ok that he was crawling around and getting into things. Everybody is very tolerant of children, obviously. Cool, fun.
I loved it! Awesome new HEB! I actually came to visit because an officemate mentioned the poke at HEB. Once I got there I was thinking, oh, it’s the supermarket sushi eeks! But, I went ahead and got it, and I was surprised at how good it was. I mean I had very low expectations, but it tasted great! Avocado, seared tuna, fresh, good texture, and the sauce (original) was perfect! Yum, very good. It was $10 after in store coupon, provided by HEB. Great experience.
in their new location in the Heights on 11th and Yale! Nom nom nom... this place is awesome because their cookies are good, they warm them up and do their specialty thing, deliver to that special person! Great idea and perfect for my referral business!
Mmm...the Blue Popeye (Almond Butter, Blueberries, Coconut Milk, Vanilla Protein, Vanilla Extract, Spinach) from Fuel, best when I’m on the go go go!
Wow this place has some really cool, authentic spices! Go prepared for strong odors, it’ll knock you off your feet. I think I spent less than a few minutes in this place and I walked out smelling like spices. But really cool place for spices.
Wow, this place was impressive! I mean every square inch of wall space was taken by these cases of baked goods. To say I was overwhelmed was an understatement! I realized the popular 85C Bakery had a similar self-serve style where you pick up a large tray and tongs and have at it! I did not know where to start, to be honest. There were barely any labels and I had no idea what all the items were. I had to look at what people were getting and I did recognize a few things like the churros, chocolate chewy cookie, coconut macaron, which I bought along with several other things.
So I loved the authenticity of this place, mostly Latin customers, but I’ll be honest, I wasn’t that impressed with the pastries. I only took a few bites of most of what I bought and will say, I have had much tastier experiences. However, no horrible experiences, it was all decent, just have had better. Anyway, that’s all I have to say about that...oh wait, one more thing...it was super inexpensive. All of what I got, which were 2 bag fulls cost me $8. Not a bad bakery for decent pastries. The wedding cookies were good.
Delicious! If you like vegan kind of meals.
I didn’t love my breakfast but it wasn’t bad. Actually it was pretty good. Definitely good for what I ordered, Southwest Scramble (egg whites only). Just not what I typically order, I’ll try the traditional breakfast next time and report back.
