Cheap Eats: Prosciutto sandwich @ Trident

I don’t know about you, but I love a good sandwich.  A sandwich that has interesting flavors and textures, and that is made with fresh ingredients.  I found a new favorite sandwich last week, and I couldn’t be more jazzed about it. The melted Brie and Prosciutto sandwich at Trident. Creamy melted Brie, salty Prosciutto,…

Exploring the SoWa Market

Yesterday, I had a day off from work and decided to try the SoWa market for the first time, since it’s a travesty that I haven’t gone before. I love open–air markets, being from NYC, they’re all over the place, and I have found some great items in streetside fairs in US and abroad.  I…

Cheap Eats: Windsor Dim Sum Cafe

Like many couples, The Russian and I relish the evenings when we’re both free so we can have date night.  We were both feeling something different, and decided on Windsor Dim Sum Cafe in Chinatown. While The Russian has actually spent time in China, I’ve never had Dim Sum before, and I figured it was…

Tasty Travel: The Pub, Fort Lauderdale

Last week, The Russian and I went to Fort Lauderdale, Florida with some friends.  It was wonderful.  Beach, sand, friends, and nothing but time to catch up on some Game of Thrones reading. My friend has some property connected to the Marriott Harbor Beach, so the backdrop for said reading was just wonderful. I was…

Tasty Travel: The Landing at 7 Central

Being inspired by my upcoming travels, I wanted to share a great place I found that’s not to far away from Boston, so those who cannot fly anywhere can at least have a mini–getaway. So a few weeks ago The Russian and I took the commuter rail (gotta stay frugal) to Singing Beach in Manchester–by–the–Sea….

Frugal Foodie in Florida!

So this Tuesday, The Russian and I are joining some friends in (hopefully) sunny Ft. Lauderdale.  My friend from college has a pretty large house out there and is letting us stay for the week. While I will try to post on the food and sun, I am not sure how often I will get…

Check out my culinary Travels through Europe

Yesterday, my first of three guest posts was published to Tripologist, a site devoted to giving the inside take on traveling.  Click on the picture to read about the travels (and tastes) of the countries I visited last summer. I’m planning to travel to more destinations with The Russian in the near future, so these…

Tasty Travel: The Smith, NYC

Last weekend, The Russian and I left Boston for my hometown of NYC, to visit my friend Tora Fisher, who, as I have written before, is an amazing artist living in the city. Anyways, before getting on the long journey back to Boston, Tora causally said she would take us to a place that had…

A global guide to tipping (5 Photos)

Just wanted to re–blog this post from The Chive, a site I love, about tipping. Being a member of the restaurant industry in Boston, tipping is literally how I keep my lights on and The Russian fed. Needless to say, it’s important, and I find that not everyone, especially our foreign guests, are aware of…

Cheap Eats: Earl of Sandwich

On days that are bright and sunny (like today, although I am sitting at home watching The Matrix), I like to meet The Russian near his job downtown and have lunch in the commons. Since we’re both adventurous folk , we like to try new places to eat.  Yesterday was Earl of Sandwich, which has…
