Kale Me Crazy

It’s been open for a couple months now, and I’m sure you’ve already checked it out, but in case you haven’t, I wanted to bring a bit of attention to the new superfood cafe in downtown Homewood – Kale Me Crazy. Being from Atlanta, I’ve heard the name a few times (there’s several locations in…

Shake Shack

Welcome to Birmingham, Shake Shack! Tonight I was able to attend the official House Warming Party for Birmingham’s very first Shake Shack with a few of my friends – so much fun! Y’all know how I feel about the Birmingham food scene, especially the local spots, but there’s something exciting about having a nationally recognized…

Silver Coin Indian Grill

I’ve found myself falling more and more in love with the culture of food. I find it incredibly fascinating that the time we spend around the dinner table is universal, but the specific traditions vary. Dining in ethnic restaurants is the closest thing I’m getting to actually emerging myself into different cultures for the time…

Porch Light Latin Kitchen

My love for food – the art, the culture, the taste, the social aspect, the fellowship around it, all of it – began when I was much younger. I grew up with two parents that also love to spend time around a table and love to learn the stories behind the chefs that put their…

Non-Fiction Coffee Co.

I’ve got a special little coffee brand I want to share with y’all today. I love to write about food and restaurants (as I’m hoping you know by now), but it’s also important to me that y’all know the brands I love and support, that might not have store-fronts or brick and mortars, but are…

Perry’s Steakhouse & Grille

Perry’s is not your average neighborhood steakhouse. It’s moody and warm, but also extremely well thought out. It’s evident there’s people behind the scenes doing everything they can to make your experience with them the best it can be. Which is more than admirable, it’s just, simply put, special and worth noting for sure. There’s…

Root To Tail

I feel like I’ve been talking nonstop about Root To Tail since the first time I set foot in that place about a month ago.  Being from Atlanta, I’m very accustomed to this farm-to-table concept, but for some reason, I feel like it’s been a slower trend here in Birmingham. Lately, however, that trend has…

Twisted Root Burger Co.

So funny story: I’ve lived here in Birmingham for almost 6 years, and until last Wednesday, I’d never heard of this place! Twisted Root Burger Co. is located down Rocky Ridge Road, across from Moe’s BBQ. Seriously, how could I have gone this long without hearing a peep?! The wannabe foodie in me secretly detests…

Valentine’s Day in the Magic City

Ok lovebirds, Valentine’s Day is only two weeks away! Have you decided on your special date night and solidified a reservation? Maybe not, but you’ve come to the right place. Birmingham is filled with spots, perfect for the occasion. I’ve always secretly liked Valentine’s Day. Honestly, I’m pretty okay with any ‘holiday’ that provides an…
