Kassab’s

Looking for some authentic Middle Eastern dishes? Look no further than the South Side. Kassab's Restaurant has it all - hummus, kibbee, gyro, baklava, other things I can't really pronounce, and plus the authentic music to go along with it. Appie: We went with the Mezza Platter just to get a taste of a little bit … Continue reading Kassab’s

Colony Cafe

Wine? Coffee? Cats?? Colony Cafe has it all! Now, I will say that I didn't have anything to eat, so there's not much to add to this post. But I loved it so much I just had to tell all you yinzers about it. Since I didn't have any food and it was early afternoon, I decided to … Continue reading Colony Cafe

German Rouladen

In English, Rouladen means rolls; so these are basically beef rolls, what sounds better than that? Here's a little background for ya - since my grandparents came from Germany, I like to learn as many of our old family recipes as possible (s/o to my Oma for this gem). Bonus: it's fairly easy, yet so … Continue reading German Rouladen

Nicky’s Thai Kitchen

Are you looking for some authentic Thai food in Pittsburgh? Look no further than Nicky's. With two locations, the North Side and Downtown, this place is a perfect lunch spot with reasonable prices. Plus they use goldware instead of silverware, so that's hip. I will admit, I have been here more times than I can … Continue reading Nicky’s Thai Kitchen

Casellula @ Alphabet City

Fistly, I need to talk about Casellula's atmosphere. Two words: neat-o. It's a big space that is shared with City of Asylum for their performances, which occur during dinners even (we got lucky with a poetry reading)! Another interesting trait is Casellula's no-tipping policy. It really cultivates a strong bond between the whole team. Only issue … Continue reading Casellula @ Alphabet City

Condado Tacos

With their grand opening on Taco Tuesday this week, I had to visit Condado Tacos - located on the corner of Liberty and 10th... ...and what a fun visit it was. The vibes here are definitely all good: each wall is hand-painted differently, they use mason jars as beer glasses, have a friendly staff, and an intimate space with more … Continue reading Condado Tacos

Buffalo Bolognese

Why buffalo? I'm glad you asked. It is one of the most protein-rich/lean meats you can find out there that still tastes delicious. Look at the health benefits compared to the other meats! And where do you find it in the Burgh? Easy. Strip District Meats. Oh, and this one's for all you fellow spaghetti squash lovers … Continue reading Buffalo Bolognese

Yinzer Eats in Chicago

What a whirlwind of a weekend it was. I saw green rivers, had one too many cocktails, and enjoyed tons of different foods that Chicago had to offer me. Huge s/o to my friends for making it a weekend to remember. Day 1: Lou Malnati's: Naturally our first meal in Chicago was deep dish pizza. … Continue reading Yinzer Eats in Chicago

Eddie V’s

Eddie V's, a new hotspot that just opened in the Union Trust Building is something worth mentioning. I was lucky enough to get reservations the week it opened (s/o mom), and I am ready to go back. Since this is a seafood restaurant, I of course decided to get all seafood and definitely didn't regret it. I will … Continue reading Eddie V’s

Happy National Meatball Day

Happy National Meatball Day! What better way to celebrate than to start my monthly review of M3 (Mercato's Meatball of the Month)! If you aren't aware, one of downtown Pittsburgh's most popular bar/restaurant does a meatball of the month - and I never miss out. I'll make sure to always try it incase you can't. ~~~ … Continue reading Happy National Meatball Day

Choco Banana Bread

So it's International Women's Day. And what woman doesn't like chocolate? "If a woman is upset, hold her and tell her how beautiful she is. If she starts to growl, retreat to a safe distance and throw chocolate at her." Since I've been on this health kick the past couple months, I needed to find … Continue reading Choco Banana Bread
