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…

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…

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…

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…

The Rougaroux

If you’re in need of a NOLA fix, I’ve got just the thing for you! Tucked on a side street in Forest Park sits an old house turned restaurant: The Rougaroux. The order-at-the-bar restaurant concept is decorated with a mixture of New Orleans and zombie paraphernalia – quite the combo, let me tell you. But…

Big Bad Breakfast 2.0

I don’t know about you, but I feel like the downtown Homewood area is just booming right now! It’s been so fun to hear of all the new restaurants coming to town. I can’t wait to try them all out! I’ve been getting back into the food blogging thing (ptl, it’s been too long!) and…

Big Bad Breakfast

Big, Bad, and truly a Birmingham gem. I’m embarrassed to admit that even after living here for over four years, I just now gave Big Bad Breakfast a shot. To be honest, I walked in expecting your average breakfast joint, complete with sticky syrup dispensers and menus and bitter coffee, but left in awe of the…

Holler & Dash

Ok, I fan-girled pretty hard this weekend. It’s almost embarrassing how excited I get about trying new restaurants… I was invited to attend the pre-launch tasting event at Holler & Dash, a new biscuit house in Homewood, that is scheduled to launch this Tuesday! The event took place this Saturday, and I took ample notes and…
