Last week, my mom brought tons of salad. I was like what am I going to do with all that salad. Then, it came to me! I’m going to Greek Salad with a homemade Greek Salad Dressing. So I took to the internet. During my research, I found that the Greek Salad originated from Greece. The name means rustic salad or summer salad.
The typical salad ingredients include
feta cheese, and Kalamata olives. The salad is typically seasoned with salt and oregano, then dressed with olive oil.
While on Pinterest and Google, I saw that there were many different variations of this salad. Some individuals added garbanzo bean, capers or even green bell peppers.
I posted the recipes down below the recipe that I followed. I hope you guys try it out and post a picture if you do because I would to see your Greek Salad creation.
Last week Thursday, my cousin invited her sister and myself to hang out with her coworker and herself for Happy Hour Piola in Miami Beach. Piola is an Italian pizzeria that serves amazing authentic Italian dishes.
We decided to sit at the bar, My cousin and I got Strawberry Caipiroska and my other cousin got the same drink but a kiwi flavor. Strawberry and Kiwi was so good. I had make my drink with less alcohol because it was so strong. The drinks during happy hour were extremely affordable. The drinks prices ranged from 6-8 dollars. We got three drinks and total came up to be $20.00.
Now what I really enjoyed about the restaurant was that while we sat the bar, we were served appetizers. The appetizers were spicy pico de gallo with fresh pita bread, spicy pasta and deli roll that had corn, lettuce, deli meat and mayo type condiment. I almost forgot they served us a bruschetta as well. Everything was so good. However, the deli roll was my favorite because I don’t really eat spicy food.
We also got to try Sgroppino Al Limone which is lemon gelato with vodka. It was really good. I didn’t even taste the alcohol and I liked that because my tolerance for alcohol is so low. If I can taste alcohol, I don’t like it. So when I felt I drinking melted ice cream, I was happy.
The customer service was excellent and they had some cute Italian guys there that was a plus (lol). They also have a Ladies Night on Wednesday so ladies if you are in Miami Beach on Wednesday go check them out. Now on to my rating of Piola, I would gave them 5 belly full because of the customer service and the food was amazing. So if you are in the Broward/ Dade area go check Piola and tell me what you think.
My good friend brought me some food because I was seriously hangry. You guys can relate to me when we get to the point of being hangry; we can’t think or function and everything annoys us. So my friend decided to bring me Salsa Fiesta. Salsa Fiesta is Mexican restaurant chain like Chipotle. They have the typical Mexican dishes like tacos, burritos, and taco bowls. However, unlike Chipotle they have tostones top with meat and toppings. Yummy!
Guys, I love a good burrito! It makes my belly and taste buds dance especially if I’m really hungry. So I was dancing as I ate that burrito because it was so good. In my opinion, it was better than Chipotle. I know blasphemy but it’s true. The burrito was so flavorful and hearty. My friend got me the Classic burrito. My burrito had rice, black beans, corn, pico de gallo, sour cream, lettuce and chicken. The chicken was so moist and filled with chicken. I like that because Chipotle sometimes doesn’t always give you a lot of meat. But that was not the case with Salsa Fiesta; every bite had chicken in it. So that was a point for them.
The meal also came with tortilla chips and pico de gallo. Everything was so fresh and yummy. I had so much food that I was able to save some for my dinner later that night. My overall rating for Salsa Fiesta was 5 bellies full because my food tasted freshly made. It was flavorful and hearty. I love that their prices are very reasonable for a broke foodies like myself. If you have a Salsa Fiesta in your city, go check them out. You won’t regret it.
I had the pleasure of going to Buffalo Wild Wings with my cousin. This was my first time dining at this sports bar. I always wanted to go because I heard individuals comment on how good their wings were and Wing Stop wings. I haven’t been to Wing Stop yet but stay tuned.
Buffalo Wild Wings (BBW) was founded in 1982 by Jim Debrow and Scott Lowry when Debrow was a judge for an amateur figure skating competition at Kent State University in 1980. The original name of the restaurant was Buffalo Wild Wings & Weck (BW-3). The last W in the abbreviation was created for the beef on wecksandwich. In 1990, Buffalo Wild Wings & Weck began to operate as a franchise. Buffalo Wild Wings is known to be an American casual dining restaurant and sports bar franchise. BBW’s has many different locations in the United States, Canada, México and Philippines. BBW is known for their specialty chicken wings and sauces.
I went to BBW twice back to back. So I’ll speak about both experiences. The restaurant was filled with a couple of participants but they were able to seat us within a few minutes of being there. Our waitress was extremely nice and recommended that we try their fried pickles because she stated that they are known for having the best fried pickles. My cousin had their fried pickles before and she raved about how good they were. So I decided to try it. Now when our fried pickles came out the presentation was not what we expected. The pickles were not covered all over with the batter and were bit on the salty side. So I really didn’t care for them to much.
At BBW, there are other things to munch on other than wings like burgers, salads, etc. Now on the menu, there is a thermometer that ranks the sauces from sweet to spicy. They also list the different dry rub seasonings on the opposite side of the thermometer. I thought that this was helpful so that people who can’t have spicy food know where to look for options. The two sauces that I tried my first time were honey mustard and honey bbq. The honey mustard was really tart and dry. I didn’t like that one at all. I tried the honey bbq and it was pretty good. It was sweet yet it had a nice kick to it. My cousin and I tried the parmesan garlic and we didn’t really care for that one at all. It was really moist on the outside and salty.
The second time I went to BBW, I went out with my cousins and close friends. One of my cousins tried the lemon pepper dry rub and she gave me one to try. Omg guys, soooooo good!! When you bit into the chicken, you instantly taste the lemon and then the pepper sneaks up and karate chopped your taste buds. It amazing combination. I wanted to eat all her wings but she was not about to let that happen. My other cousin got the teriyaki chicken. It wasn’t good at all. The taste was not appeasing to my taste buds. I don’t like ginger and that is all I could taste. So that was a big “NO” for me. My friend had the salt and vinegar wings. I thought it was decent. The waitress said it was like salt and vinegar chips but I don’t think so. It was very vinegary (if that is even a word.)
My overall experience was okay. The service was decent. I enjoyed the two wing flavors (honey bbq and lemon pepper). If you go on Tuesday, they have a wing special of .69 per wing. Now you have to pay for the Bleu cheese and Ranch dressing. I would give BBW 3 belly full out of 5. If you have a BBW in your area you should go check them out and tell me about your experience and what were your favorite sauces.
