Friday, August 21, 2009

A couple of weeks ago, I got a message from three guys, Nhon, Chucky, and TJ; apparently they had basically read my mind. We, on the east coast, are sick of waiting for the Kogi BBQ Truck to come here! The three friends took matters into their own hands and decided to launch their own […]

J & D Italian Deli

Wednesday, July 8, 2009

Ice (our Jack Russell Terrier) and I went to work with Lon today, in Dayton, New Jersey, where the Folica warehouse is. There’s trees and grass here, a totally different scene from the Manhattan office in Midtown, Manhattan. Ice has played fetch at least 4 times already today, making this her favorite place on Earth […]

Nino’s Pizza

Monday, June 1, 2009

Salvitore at Hom told us that Nino’s Pizza on Third Avenue (not to be confused with the plethora of other places with the same name) is his favorite pizza place. It was yet another place where we found the owner working in the shop. Our plan was a quick drive by. Lon hopped out, while […]

Sunday, May 31, 2009

A couple of weeks ago, I got a message from Robicelli’s Gourmet Market Robicelli’s Gourmet Market requesting that we come try their cupcakes.

Tortas in Playa del Carmen

Thursday, February 26, 2009

Remember the other day, when we hunted for tacos? Well, we also spotted several interesting shops to buy tortas (sandwiches). Unfortunately (or fortunately, depending on how you look at it), I couldn’t eat as many different tortas as I did tacos, they’re just too big. So I tried to pick the two […]

Breakfast Tacos

Wednesday, February 25, 2009

Massages are pretty inexpensive here in Playa Del Carmen, about USD $59 for two people (1 hour each). But the even bigger benefit was chatting with the hostess, who spoke English pretty well.
