Restaurant Review: MamaSushi (Inwood, NYC)

Like many of the other restaurants in the area, MamaSushi is located in a relatively small, but cozy venue, alongside a row of hole-in-the wall bars on Dyckman Ave, one block north of the A train. With names like the Campesino, the Chimi and Las Terrenas, you quickly realize that the rolls you’re choosing from aren’t going ...

Review: Old Lahaina Luau (Maui, Hawaii)

I really couldn’t think of a better way to top off a weeklong trip on the beautiful island of Maui, than to attend the Old Lahaina Luau. With the beautiful ocean as your backdrop, this traditional Luau will provide an evening of entertainment which focuses specifically on Hawaiian dances (if you want to see a ...

Easter Sunday at Hillsong NYC: 2014

Although the majority of articles on my blog revolve around various reviews, tonight I just wanted to give props to the man upstairs for continuing to make an impact in my life, and for reminding me of who I am to Him, and in Him. Having lived in New York City for the past 9.5 ...

Show Review: Ulalena (Maui, Hawai’i)

Photo Credit: mauitheatre.com While planning out our evening activities, I happened to fall upon an advert for Ulalena in one of the many brochures at our hotel. I’m usually not the type to scour through advertisements in magazines as I prefer finding my info online, but in retrospect, I’m incredibly happy that I did as Ulalena ...

Restaurant Review: Nai Tapas Bar (LES, NYC)

Just another one of those inconspicuous Manhattan restaurants, whose storefront doesn’t do justice to the experience that is awaiting inside.  A few weeks ago, a group of friends had agreed to meet for a birthday celebration at Nai Tapas Bar, located on the Lower East Side.  For larger groups, Nai provides a delicious fixed menu for $40 per person, that ...

Hotel Review: Providence Biltmore Hotel (Rhode Island)

Located in the heart of downtown Providence, the Biltmore is conveniently location in close proximity to City Hall, the Rhode Island Convention Center, various museums, Brown University, and plenty of dining options.  After a long ride on the bus from NYC, it was nice to see that our drop-off location was only a block away ...

Restaurant Review: Havana Cafe (Bronx, NY)

I don’t often venture out into the Bronx just for a meal, but the one exception I will always make is for the mouth-watering Lechoncito ($17 at time of review) at the Havana Cafe. Easily one of the top 5 meals I’ve had the opportunity to experience while living in NY, the bone-in roast pork ...

Restaurant Review: La Sandwicherie (Miami)

It was my first time in Miami and based upon a friend’s recommendation, a few buddies and I ended up checking out La Sandwicherie.  This turned out to definitely be the best decision of the trip!  I decided to go with the Prosciutto and Fresh Mozzarella, and it ended up being absolutely to die for! Just look at the pic…a ...

Hotel Review: Outrigger Aina Nalu, Maui (Hawaii)

“My new home away from home” From the wonderful staff, to the awesome facilities, and of course its great location (a few short blocks from the heart of downtown Lahaina), the Aina Nalu has really done an amazing job in making sure their guests feel right at home. Their attention to detail really sets them ...
