Gondres Bakery: A Shift in Perspective and Taste

I think I might get a bit philosophical in this week’s post, so be forewarned. I’m working on a theory of mine, and I’m going to test it out. Here it is: I think flavor can be a matter of perspective. I think generally we are inclined to believe that whether or not we like…

Dunkin’ Donuts: The Fuel of Massachusetts

Their slogan is “America runs on Dunkin’.” Well, I don’t know about that, but I can affirm that Boston runs on Dunkin’. Seriously, though, it’s ridiculous. There are Dunkin’ Donuts restaurants all over the place. I know one area near Chinatown where there are two Dunkins located literally one block from each other. One block! I…

Subway: On Duty and Obligation

There comes a time in every man’s life, and woman’s life, I don’t want to leave anyone out here, when he must, plain and simple, perform a duty, his duty. What is duty, aside from a word that always makes me giggle when I say it aloud because I’m immature? Duty is the performing of…

Cappy’s Pizza and Subs

Young Kong Chinese Restaurant

You remember my first post at Yely’s Coffee Shop? Remember how sketchy I said it was? Well let me tell you, Yely’s doesn’t have anything compared to the next restaurant on Centre Street. Let me introduce you to Young Kong Chinese Restaurant. That’s right, Young Kong. But I’ll leave the name alone. It’s just too…

Yely’s Coffe Shop: Part II

A few weeks ago, I made my first visit to Yely’s Coffee Shop, but instead of asking the guy working there what I should order, I chickened out, and ordered something that looked good to me. It was a good choice, but it didn’t adhere to my rules for ordering—I have to get the worker…

Detour: Tom + Chee

I can’t write a blog for each place I went to this past week, but I wanted share some of my experience with you by picking what was, for me, the most surprising edible adventure of my time in Ohio—the grilled cheese donut.
