Destination Miami: Planet Sushi

I think it was the atmosphere and the layout of this restaurant that caught my attention first. It had a very hip and trendy feel to it. The furniture was monotone, but the splash of pinkish light from the sushi bar in the back made the restaurant vibrant. The restaurant was pretty dimly light in...

Destination Oak Ridge: Jalisco Mexican Restaurant

I was only spending one night in Oak Ridge, Tennessee, and I wanted to make sure I picked a good place for dinner. I was pretty limited in my choices, since I didn’t rent a car and couldn’t explore much area. Luckily, there were a bunch of restaurants on the road near the hotel. There...

Sonic America’s Drive-In

I’ve seen commercials for Sonic Drive-In on television before and I’ve seen advertisement for their specialty frozen drinks like the Sonic Blasts. However, I’ve never actually seen an actual Sonic before. I remember googling it once, and discovered that the closest one to New York City was located about 125 miles south, somewhere in Pennsylvania....

Destination Miami: China Grill

We read from the newspaper about a very well decorated, almost gourmet-like Asian fusion restaurant located within walking distance from our hotel. We had to check it out. China Grill located on 404 Washington Ave. The first time we walked by, we accidentally missed the entrance. But when we entered the restaurant, we were amazed...

Destination Miami: Jerry’s Famous Deli

Just a couple of blocks away from our hotel, we come across Jerry’s Famous Deli. It was around noontime, and we were looking for some fast comfort food. Some diner breakfast food would be just great. Jerry’s Famous Deli, located on 1450 Collins Avenue, is open 24 hours a day. Their menu was pretty instense,...

Destination Miami: Le Bon

It was the fifth night in Miami and we were craving for some seafood. Miami’s got to have great seafood. Therefore, we went towards Lincoln Road again, in search for some seafood restaurant that would satisfy our craving. We came across Le Bon Restaurant on 723 Lincoln Road. “Le Bon” means “It’s good” in an...

Destination Miami: Mr Chu’s Hong Kong Cuisine

While browsing through one of those tourist booklets, we came across an ad for Dim Sum. There was Hong Kong pushcart styled Dim Sum in Miami. We figured it would be interesting to check it out. Now, I’m a very big fan of Dim Sum. Traditionally, Dim Sum is thought of as a food you...

Destination Miami: Oriente

Another night at along the Ocean Drive, we came across the Oriente. This restaurant is right on the first floor of the Cardozo Hotel, on 1300 Ocean Drive. The restaurant and the hotel are both owned by the famous Gloria and Emilio Estefan (along with many other things they own in Miami). What caught our...

Breakfast at the Royal Palm Hotel, Miami

We stayed at the Royal Palm Hotel, located on 1545 Collins Avenue. It was a great spot, since it was at the center of a lot of local attractions. It’s right next to the beach for one. Inside this hotel, they have the Britto Restaurant. I believe they’re known for their Italian seafood cuisine. So...

Destination Miami: Rumba Palace

The lady at the front desk also suggested Ocean Drive as a good area to dine at. Ocean Drive runs along the beach and is filled with tons of hotels, restaurants, and bars, most of which are pretty famous. For example, there’s the Clevelander. It’s a hotel, a bar, and a crazy hot spot, known...
