This was my first meal at Five Guys, a restaurant chain that originated in Arlington, Virginia. The whole establishment is decorated with large quotes from various publications stating how good the burgers and fries are. My expectations are already heightened the moment I walk into Five Guys.

Cindy and I both ordered the cheeseburger with different toppings that match our individual taste buds. I, of course had mine with: hot sauce, jalapeños, tomatoes, and mayo. Cindy had hers with barbecue sauce, grilled onions, lettuce, and tomato. I did not want to add too many toppings, for the fear of having a mushy burger.

The burgers tasted like a homemade burger that you would grill outside in the park. I never had a burger well done but at Five Guys, you have no choice. Well done burgers were good and had a nice flavor to it without it being extremely juicy. The cajun fries we had were heavily seasoned. I am going to order regular fries the next time I go. They were good none the less. They also had a sign up stating that their french fries are cooked in pure, no cholesterol peanut oil.

Oh, did I mention there are complimentary open boxes of roasted peanuts everywhere in the restaurant? Feel free to help yourself.

After a day of drinking, my friend and I ventured for some Mexican food for breakfast. We entered into Cinco De Mayo way too early so we just sat at our tables thinking about all the Mexican food we were going to eat while we waited for the waitress to clock in.

We finally ordered and were treated to some beef quesadilla. I was pleasantly surprised to find that the appetizer was very good and also filled with a lot of cheese. Then came the paella which was loaded with various seafoods such as mussels, clams, tilapia, etc. Although the food was good the fish was over steamed which led to a fishier experience… which I did not want to get accustomed to.

John and I decided to have a cheese pizza pie delivered to his house in Palisades Park, New York. After I consumed a full slice, I asked John, “Is this the best Jersey has got to offer in terms of pizza?” His reply was, “Everyone says their pizza is great.”
.
Well, I highly disagree! The crust was so hard and dry, it was unbearable to eat. I’m not much of a crust person but I would like to eat the whole darn thing if I’m hungry. I do not recommend unless you are in the area and desperate for anything that’s opened late at night.
.
Well, at that point, I was glad I lived in New York City because that’s where you should go for an awesome slice of pizza. 🙂

John and I happened to be in the East Village and stumbled upon what I have been craving for all week: tacos! We ordered tacos from the Snack Dragon Taco Shack. It was a bit pricey for one taco (carne asada was $5 while fish taco was $4) but they give you lots of ingredients. Plus, it was pretty fresh and made in front of you.

Our tacos were also served in blue corn tortillas which I thought was pretty neat. It has more protein and less starch than the white corn tortillas. However, it was kind of dry. 😦 We had trouble eating our tacos so we had to use forks and treat it like a taco salad! I tried eating it with my hands but the weak tortilla ripped and all of the ingredients fell out onto my plate. You can’t really eat it on the go but luckily there were stools and chairs inside and outside of the shack.

The strips of steak were very juicy and tender and was topped with lots of cheese and black beans. ¡Magnífico! Despite the great amount of ingredients in one taco, it still didn’t make me full. Pretty tasty but pricey!

I could happily say that I ate DiNic’s Roast Pork Sandwich. It took forever for the food to get into my hands and into my stomach, but, I could say that it was worth it. I ordered my sandwich with sharp provolone cheese and roasted peppers. The roasted peppers gave it a very nice heat factor.

The sandwich is basically meat on a roll. The meat is very nicely cooked with a lot of juices running rampant once you take the first bite. The provolone cheese kept the sandwich together and the roasted peppers gave it a nice kick.

You do not need me to tell you to go try it.

“With her boisterous personality, warm smile, and delicious soul food, Delilah Winder is a local legend in Philadelphia. And when her mac ‘n’ cheese was voted best in the nation on the Oprah Winfrey Show, Delilah was dubbed America’s Mac ‘n’ Cheese queen.”

After being on Bobby Flay’s Throwdown and being praised by Oprah for her super duper good mac & cheese, John and I decided to try it out at the Reading Terminal Market. We bought a small side dish of mac & cheese and it came out to around $5 plus tax! So expensive.

After biting into it, I can say that this is not your average mac & cheese from a box. It tasted good but I could probably make this at home if I knew what the ingredients were. There are supposedly 7 different kinds of cheeses in there but I couldn’t really taste them all. I tasted a lot of ricotta but according to the recipe I found, it didn’t have ricotta. There was also black pepper which gave it a distinct flavor.

Maybe they skimped out on the cheeses…I don’t know. But it’s definitely overrated and too expensive!

Bought these delicious chicken/cheese taquitos from Costco. It definitely makes a good snack if you are on the go but it needs more filling…

Had a afternoon snack of multi-grain bread smothered with strawberry jam and cottage cheese.  I absolutely adore multi-grain bread, especially the incredibly soft and hearty ones.  The strawberry jam was organic and had no sugar added which makes the jam taste much more earthy and like real strawberries.  The cottage cheese was something extra I just put on because I wanted to try something different.

If you have these three ingredients laying around in your fridge and want to make a quick snack, try this lip smacking good treat.
