The Arlington Files: Tabouleh Mediterranean Cafe

My favorite thing about food writing is finding a restaurant that is under-appreciated. Tucked away in a blocky strip mall on Merrill Road, one might drive past Tabouleh every day for years without noticing it. One would be missing out.

Sneak Preview: Seasons 52

Is it possible to melt the icy heart of the city’s biggest St. Johns Town Center grinch? With a CHAIN restaurant? All I can say is, if Seasons 52 is wrong, I don’t wanna be right.

Road Food: Sugar’s Ribs – Chattanooga, TN

It’s no secret that The Man and I are into barbecue. As we motored through Chattanooga, Tennessee, we couldn’t help but notice the signs for Sugar’s Ribs. Clinging to the side of Missionary Ridge, the place commanded a view of the city and mountains that was very appealing. But would the ‘cue measure up to the view?

Road Food: Zingerman’s Deli – Ann Arbor, MI

For many years, I’ve gotten the Zingerman’s catalog. There are plenty of illustrations, but no photos involved in this cute deli/bakery line drawing paradise. When The Man and I realized that our trip from Toronto to our family’s home on Lake PawPaw in Michigan would bring us through Ann Arbor, we knew we had to see these treats in person. It’s hard to pull the trigger on mail ordering baked goods and charcuterie, but when you’re practically driving PAST the place — well, you’re just duty bound to check it …

Eat Up Downtown: Indochine

Eat Up Downtown’s purpose is clear — draw Jacksonville’s citizenry away from their favorite outlying restaurants and into downtown.  Some of the most highly regarded establishments in the city trot out their three course prix fixe menus once a year for the low, low price of $25. Galloping hordes of diners (in theory) pour into their chairs, sample the fare and establish a relationship that will last the whole year through. So, what happened at Indochine?

Nutrition Information: Coming to a Table Near YOU.

It’s no secret that eating at restaurants can be shockingly high in calories. Anyone who has seen “Eat This Not That” segments on morning shows knows that the whole wheat grilled chicken hold-the-mayo sandwich is sometimes more of a calorie bomb than a cheeseburger. We live in a world of 1500 calorie salads. It’s enough to drive a pudgy girl mad. By the end of this year, chains with more than 20 locations will be forced to cough up their numbers. Is this good or bad?

The Arlington Files: The Donut Shoppe

 
I’ll be honest – Arlington is not a hotbed of culinary excitement. Even the extended areas of Regency and “Down University” seem to be one never ending strip mall filled with fast food, megachains and questionable Chinese buffets. However, we have one thing that you can’t get anywhere else in Jax – the best doughnuts. Ever.

Slow Foodies At Play

Slow Food First Coast is a branch of Slow Food USA – both of which are all about reconnecting people to their food and the farmers and artisans who provide it. As they say, they want to support the good, the clean and the fair. Slow Food First Coast has been busy doing just that this spring. I’ve participated in two events that I’d like to share – the Tour de Farm and the Slow Down event at Intuition Ale Works.
