Where They Eat: Night Lights and Pad Thai Cafe

I can’t say I know a whole lot about Boston’s eating scene. I mean I’ve spent about twelve hours in the city on two separate trips. One visit revolved around a baseball game that was played under such a hard rain that it left my desire to explore the food culture of the city somewhere around zilch. The other visit was cut short by a banishment. […]

Where We Eat (and drink): Naga Tea

Thanksgiving is a time of gluttonous delight for most Americans. We overeat to the point of discomfort and then spend the days afterwards wallowing in the aftereffects of our poor decisions. This year, I preplanned better than in the past. I went on a diet. A tea diet. It worked like this. Eat no breakfast, drink a tea filled with boba for a lunch time meal, […]

Where We Eat: The Corner Store

I have to admit that what initially drew me to The Corner Store, located in the historic downtown of Plant City, was their bold and memorable motto, the logo it helped create and their brand new brunch menu (only four weeks old) which has consistently included vegan biscuits and gravy. The motto, EAT WELL OR DIE, represents a number of The Corner Store’s most important philosophies. First and foremost, […]

Where We Eat: Little Greek Restaurant

I strolled into Little Greek last weekend like a lover rekindling with an old flame at the scene of one of their most sensuous jaunts. You see, a couple of months previous Yelp held an event at the restaurant. Head honcho Nick was led the event and he made sure that everything was done right. When he realized I was a vegan, he adjusted on the fly and […]

Where We Eat: Green Mint Asian Grill

I’m not one to be bogged down by the supernatural or anything but a few weeks ago I was at one of those parties where everyone wears a face cover and chants strange things into their neighbor’s ear when this lady in dark satin floated over and whispered  “Green Mint Asian Grill” so that only I could hear it. Before I could catch her name, she vanished into […]

Where We Eat: The Old Spanish Sugar Mill Grill and Griddle House

“From the death of the old the new proceeds, and the life of truth from the death of creeds.” -John Greenleaf Whittier In 1961, a once illustrious sugar mill standing adjacent to Deleon Springs was at the brink of demolition. The “old building” had been vacant for some time and many people were ready to see it go. But, as John Greenleaf Whittier suggested above, out of […]

Where We Eat: Cigar City Brewpub

Every day after I’m done teaching I load onto a bus with six other raucous kids and am transported over to a martial arts practice center. Here I am part of a jujitsu group. I am the lowest member on the totem pole. There are kindergarten kids who can jui-jitsu better than me. This weekend we had a competition. Afterwards our best jui-jitsuer, Cassie, her friend […]

TheBesty is a website designed to help people discover the best restaurants and dishes in a particular city (doesn’t matter if it is home or away). These lists are created by food bloggers, travelers, even common people like yourself. Anyone can make a […]

Where We Eat: Caribbean Crown and Pujol

My wife’s boss has been harping on me, through her, for years about eating Jamaican food. He insisted that I give it a try. I have largely ignored his suggestions, namely because the one time I had Jamaican food was at this “fast food” type shack that played loud reggae music. I found the food to be too sweet and boring. I changed my tune a bit […]
