Dine here, and quick! And don't pass on the biscuits.
It's been a little while since I've felt excited about a restaurant opening in Austin. LaV was probably the last debut that perked my interest. But when I was invited to Olamaie's soft opening, my heart leaped a little. Olamaie took over an 83-year-old heritage home and embraced its laid-back ...

2014 is still young but after trying each of their menus, this Eastside eatery is easily the best new restaurant in Austin à mon avis. I wonder if anyone can top them before the year ends http://ow.ly/yxrNY

Super simple paleo dairy-free chocolate ice cream recipe + book review. If you are paleo/ vegan/ dairy-free, this book will make you happy. I'm none of the above and still loved it >> http://ow.ly/BwJu1

I don't commonly find "farm-to-table" and "hotel restaurant" in the same sentence, but what better way to showcase what a city has to offer? Check out this innovative summer menu in the heart of Austin. P.S. The Summer of Riesling! http://ow.ly/zEVA8

Pizzas, pastas & plates: snapshots from aRoma Italian Kitchen & Bar
A few months ago, I had a sneak peek of the then about-to-open aRoma when they offered some small bites at Mockingbird Domestics. Since that mellow soirée, I've been anticipating their arrival. This modern Italian eatery and wine bar on S. Lamar officially opened a few weeks ago.

I'm always keen to explore new-to-me spots in Austin. I rarely head up to The Domain because I usually only shop when I'm traveling, or I pick up my essentials from the outlets. This explains why you'll never catch me Instagramming my outfits ;). So while I'm not a fashionista, I do enjoy The ...

HAPPY 147th BIRTHDAY to my faaavourite country, always & forever. The true North strong and free!
You sure can be quirky sometimes, Canada, but I love you for your true sense of liberty, equality, and social justice. We're a humble country that prove ourselves, not by force, but by constantly improving and just living better.
