A Visit To The French Version of McD’s, Quick Burger Restaurant

QuickWhen visiting international destinations, I always visit McDonald’s to check out what local menu items might be available.

We also like to try local fast food burger shops. I haven’t written about many of them but  you can check out my review of one in Bahrain here.

During a recent trip to France, we had a long list of places to dine at. One that I hoped to try was the French version of McDonald’s called Quick. Continue reading A Visit To The French Version of McD’s, Quick Burger Restaurant

Philadelphia ranks as one of our favorite cities to visit if we want to get away for a day or two. Its close to home (Brooklyn, NY) and has enough to do to keep us busy.

One of the main draws for us when visiting Philadelphia, is the food, including the popular Philly Cheesesteak.

During our most recent visit, we tried and conquered the Philly Taco. Continue reading Philly Cheesesteak Fav Tony Luke’s Opening In NYC

An Unplanned (& Tasty) Visit To Jollibee In New York City!

JollibeeEver since we visited Jollibee in Woodside, NY, back in 2016, I’ve wanted to return to try more items from their menu.

I first came across Jollibee while watching an episode of Anthony Bourdain’s Parts Unknown. For those of you not so familiar with the restaurant, it’s a fast food restaurant from the Philippines which is quite popular there. Think of it as the country’s version of McDonald’s.

Soon after writing my review of our visit, I was happy to see that Jollibee would be expanding by opening a location in Manhattan. Continue reading An Unplanned (& Tasty) Visit To Jollibee In New York City!

It’s always exciting to hear about new openings of my favorite fast- casual burger chain, Shake Shack.

Earlier in the month I wrote about two more Shack airport locations opening.

Back in 2011, I went to the grand opening of the first Shack in Brooklyn. In 2013 I was at JFK Airport for the opening of Delta’s T4. During that day I had an unlikely encounter with Richard Branson and also dined at the first airport location of Shake Shack! Continue reading Shake Shack Opens First Location On Mainland China

What Did We Try At McDonald’s France?

McDonalds FranceMcDonald’s isn’t a restaurant that we frequent while at home but it’s a must when we’re visiting international destinations.

We like to visit McDonald’s for a variety of reasons while traveling. I love trying out the local menu items available. The kids LOVE McD’s due to the toys. (The food is definitely secondary.) It’s also nice to eat something (relatively) familiar while away.

During our recent winter break trip, we made stops at McDonalds France a few times. From what I recall, one time was just to grab a quick dessert. Continue reading What Did We Try At McDonald’s France?

United Airlines recently released a cookbook featuring over 40 recipes of their inflight meals.

For most, airline food is not what comes to mind when thinking of a good meal. I think I’m probably in the minority because I usually enjoy it. This new cookbook will offer recipes of meals from the airline’s Polaris premium cabin. (For those of you who didn’t know, United Polaris debuted in December 2016.)
