ORW18- Curry Up Now

I’m not sure what it is about street food, but no matter where it comes from it’s bomb AF. I’m so excited that Curry Up Now is apart of Oakland Restaurant Week! I’ve been wanting to come here, but just haven’t had the opportunity. Curry Up Now is different from your typical Indian restaurant. They…

ORW18- Agave Uptown

Growing up in San Diego, I will always have a special place in my heart for Mexican food. Whether it’s at my friends house, the neighborhood taco shop, or shared plates at a sit down restaurant- I love it all! I had Agave Uptown for the first time a few months ago for their anniversary…

Banana Toffee Creme Pie from McKormick and Kuleto’s

My favorite pie is banana creme pie. In high school, Marie Callender’s would have these $6 pie sales and I would totally get the banana creme ones and I swear I would devour the whole thing by myself in a day. Another thing I love about desserts is when toffee is added to it. Add…
