Quick Bites: Bowl of Pho

If you love noodles, broth, meat and vegetable as much as I do, you need to eat here… period!  All I can say is that this is the #1 Pho ever! The broth looks clear but is packed with so much flavor, this must come from the many hours they let it cook on low […]

Not too sweet, even with the caramelized white ganache that they lay on. Top them off with whipped cream and you’ll order 2 more… I […]

a. Steak ‘n’ Eggs Benedict // Sugarcane Raw Bar Grill When I first saw this dish I knew it was going to be tasty. But how tasty? I wondered. The first bite was much more than I was expecting – it was like a melody of flavors playing a great song. Eggs made to perfection, […]

The Burger Byte: Bulldog Burger

Let me start by saying that I don’t think you can go wrong with a good burger. In my opinion, the number one rule is to use fresh ingredients. Plus, the topping and condiment combinations are practically limitless. Get as creative as you want or keep it simple – it’s your choice. The Luther Burger at […]
