Dublin, Ireland

After ten days of frolicking around Ireland, I’ve come back to share my adventures with all of you. More importantly, I’m going to tell you all about the food I ate and where I ate it, and all of the fun things I did. That way you have something to go off of when you’re planning your own trip to the Emerald Isle (which I highly recommend you do).

I was traveling on my own, so I booked a bed at the Generator Hostel in Dublin, and I’m glad I didn’t spring for a hotel – I felt totally at home at the hostel. It was far enough away from the touristy area of town, but close enough to walk to pretty much everything worth seeing. The Jameson Distillery, which was right next door to the hostel, was on the top of my list of things to do – unfortunately, it was undergoing some changes and won’t reopen for tours until March 2017.

Los Angeles to San Francisco | California

Route 1

Hey friends!

Leili here. I just got back from a mini family vacation to California, traveling from Los Angeles to San Francisco and eating everything in between. And now I get to share all that good stuff with all of you wonderful people.

View of the Bay

Not to rub it in, but it was pretty great. I had never been to California before, and I can now safely say that I’m a fan. Aside from the gorgeous weather and the “ooh”-and-“aah”-worthy scenic highways, the Golden State has a very calming air to it. Which explains why its culture appears to be one of perpetual leisure, I suppose. Continue reading

New York, NY

new york cityWe’ve written about plenty of our favorite Boston restaurants in the past two years, but we’re not so biased as to think that Boston is the only place around with a food scene worth celebrating. Today, we’re sharing some of our go-to spots in New York City.

Our weekend in New York City in late July kept us constantly full and extremely sweaty. Our visit happened to coincide with the worst heat wave of the year, but this didn’t stop us from walking for hours in search of all our old favorites and plenty of new ones. Continue reading

Dig Inn

Dig Inn

After months of anticipatory hunger, we finally ate dinner at Dig Inn when it opened its doors on Boston’s Boylston Street in early July. Founded by Adam Eskin, the chain of eateries first began in 2011 in New York and locations spread quickly throughout New York City. This Boston location is Dig Inn’s first venture outside of New York, so we were eager to see if it lived up to the hype.

Spread

The insufferable mugginess of the day had given way to a cool, breezy night, so we were happy to grab a table outside. Along the perimeter of the outdoor seating area were lavender plants, which not only smelled dreamy but also created a rare feeling of seclusion from the busyness of Boston. Continue reading
