The Frogmore: No They Don’t Serve Frog Legs

Hi. Remember me? I know it’s been a while. Just over 4 years in fact.  It’s always awkward breaking the ice again after it’s been so long. Like those times when you keep meaning to text back your friend from high school, and you swear you’re gonna do it tomorrow, but you’ve said that for…

Chimi Some Love: Alex’s Chimis

My next stop on Centre Street is Alex’s Chimis. It looks like a pretty decent establishment, what with having TVs as the menu boards and all. Plus, they seem to attract a pretty steady stream of customers. Every time I walk past, there is a relatively sizable group of people waiting to order. Now, this…

Gondres Bakery: A Shift in Perspective and Taste

Latino Restaurant

At the intersection of Lamartine Street and Centre Street, there stands the first destination on my journey: Il Panino Cafe and Grill. Apparently there is a family of il Panino restaurants that…

To Eat Is to Experience

I have done a fair bit of traveling in my lifetime,—more than many but less than I’d like—and my favorite thing about traveling is eating. Of course, I love to see the sights, but for me, to really experience a locale is to eat its food. You just never know what you will find. I…
