Our experience at the Fiery Foods & BBQ Show led to the discovery of new hot sauces and new businesses. It may inspire you to go next year.
This year, we started a monthly Supper Club with friends. There aren’t any hard and fasts rules other than it should be a new-to-all-of-us restaurant. I am not writing about this generally, but this time we chose to go to Birdhouse in Erie, Colorado. This restaurant serves up tacos and ramen, and therefore I felt obligated to write about it here.
This blog post is a little overdue. I went to Phở Duy last month for my quarterly blogger meeting with Dave Taylor of GoFatherhood, and Christian Toto of Hollywood in Toto. Of course, both men have lots of other irons in the fire too.
With all that seafood I was surprised that this dish was just $16.95, the same price as Ryan’s entree. Plus, we got all those sides. It was a feast. Mt. Fuji serves a lot of food!
I would definitely go back to Mt. Fuji if I wasn’t on this mission to try all the Asian soups and tacos in Northern Colorado.
Did someone say saké slushy? Yes, they did. That and other reasons to go to RamaMama in Fort Collins, Colorado.
I haven’t been to Japan, but this is the kind of ramen restaurant I imagine is all over the place. Get it in my face fast because I gotta run, kind of ramen.
This time, I visit a new-ish stripmall in Firestone, Colorado, and find some amazing pho.
Open for 35 years, this mom-and-pop restaurant has played a part in many people’s lives. In fact, I have a friend who grew up in Northern Colorado who claims it as her favorite. She is the first person who introduced me to Young’s Cafe many, many years ago.
I do not enjoy or intend to throw any small business under the bus, especially when I am no official pho critique. However, I know what I like and do not like.
I used a short road trip as an excuse to eat at Pho 79 which is conveniently located in the parking lot of Broomfield’s Pacific Ocean Marketplace.
