I actually remembered it was Tuesday today, but I was busy doing other things, so thank you to Annie @ Tuesday 4 for the questions this week.
1.What is/are your favorite meal(meals) to eat and to cook?
I don't know that I have a favorite meal to eat. I like a variety of foods but I guess either Cuban or Thai foods are my favorite types of food.
I like to cook, but for meals I enjoy things that come together quickly. I rarely spend more than 15 minutes putting a meal together, though the physical cooking time might be a bit more.
2. How often do you cook at home and what kind of meals do you make?
It depends. Some weeks I cook 6 nights and some weeks we do take out 3 or 4 times. In the summer we have a lot of vegetable meals or meat and a salad, and in the winter we have a bunch of soups or stews
3. When you go out to eat what foods do you find yourself ordering most?
Takeout (thanks Covid) we do a lot of Greek or Mexican
In a sit down restaurant (I miss this badly) I generally order fish
4. Can you recommend a restaurant in your area?
My favorite restaurant is Highland's Bar and Grill, but it has not re-opened since the initial pandemic shut down. According to their website they are scheduled to open again in late summer, but with the insane Covid case load here I am doubtful if it will happen.
The best food for the price is probably Tazikis but go to one of the 3 original ones before they started franchising. The food is very good and it is very reasonable
Why do you like it?
Besides having, hands down, the most delicious meals in town, Highlands offers a true dining experience that does not skimp on a single detail to make it perfect. If you go there prepare to drop some coins, but for special occasions it is absolutely worth it.
The chef/owner also owns two other restaurants in town that are currently operational. Che Fon Fon, which is more like a Parisian bistro and Bottega, which is Italian inspired, but don't go there expecting a pasta restaurant. Both have food that is as delicious as Highlands, but the experience is quite different.
So come on and play along!
