Stepping through the doors at The Blue Fin is like wading into the surf on a summer day.
I’m not a “foodie,” but I do consider myself something of a barbecue connoisseur. The smells that emanate from barbecue joints – whether big chains or hole-in-the-wall smokehouses – make my mouth water. So I was irrationally happy to discover a new place to add to my favorites list. But this…
Googly eyed and radiating a semi-enchanting sense of scripted passion, the Latino soap opera stars locked lips and expressed their eternal devotion to one another on a TV mounted inside El Potosino Grill.
While nothing beats a fresh, home-cooked meal, or the relaxed atmosphere of going out to dinner with friends and family, some days call for a hybrid.
I’ve been feeling under the weather lately and ended up spending a sick day home this week, so I saw this as an opportunity to try two things that are new to me. This being Pho Lee and TigerTownToGo.
I’m a Southerner, so Southern food is near and dear to my heart. And that fondness is why I visited Pannie-George’s Kitchen in Auburn this week.
This week, I decided to grab lunch at Skyline Café, which opened earlier this month in downtown Auburn. I had no idea what to expect when I strolled down East Magnolia Avenue and stepped into the restaurant, but what I found was a fresh fusion of Asian and Southwest cuisine.
For me, some of the best places to eat at are the ones that are kind of hidden and may be overlooked if not observing carefully. Gohyang Garden Korean Restaurant is definitely one of those hidden gems.
Because of my journey to and from work, I’m often near Jim Bob’s Chicken Fingers on Frederick Road. It always seems to have a steady flow of customers. After eating there this week, now I know why.
In search of some quality bar food in the middle of a long day at work, I walked into DeRailed Bar & Grill and plopped down on a stool by the bar. A sign hanging from a nearby cabinet immediately caught my eye:
When the word spread that Taco Mama was coming to Auburn, I set my sights on trying out the new Mexican spot. Mexican is generally my first choice when it comes to eating-out options, and I’m always looking for new options.
One of the first times my mom visited me in Auburn, we ate at The Village Cookery. It was a Friday night, and we had gumbo. It had a great taste and filled us up.
The Friday before the Georgia game, I was treated to lunch at the Women’s Philanthropy Board fall luncheon, headlined by the hilarious Barbara Dooley.
I’ve never been to Mexico. But if I ever go, I hope the food tastes just as delicious as the authentic cultural cuisine I sampled at Cancun’s Mexican Grill in Auburn Saturday.
Before I was hired at the Opelika-Auburn News, my current boss, Dana Sulonen, performed the requisite background check that requires making phone calls to people I listed as “references” on my job application.
