I've been wanting to try Zahav for a while now. I've heard so many amazing reviews about the Modern Israeli Cuisine that I had to try it for myself. As I was heading to the restaurant, I couldn't shake this deep nagging feeling in my gut that I should call to make a reservation. I'm glad that I did because there were NO available tables! Actually, their earliest AVAILABLE reservation wasn't until 2 months from the date I called! So, with a broken heart and dissatisfied taste-buds, I obliged and waited for 2 months. Fast forward to now -- it's my turn and I wanted to share with you the dishes that I tried!
When I first heard of International Waffle Day, my first thought was “ wow, they have a day for everything” but when I found out that Grand Lux Café was serving up Chicken & Waffles I was deeply grateful that I now had a reason to indulge in one of my favorite meals.
Cheesecake Factory Is Introducing Some Hot New Menu Items + Cheesecake Factory'S Chicken, Mango and Avocado Salad Recipe Inside
I absolutely love trying new and delicious recipes! Last week, I was invited to the Cheesecake Factory for an evening of tasting their newest menu items. Nestled tightly on the 1400 block of Walnut Street, the Center City Cheesecake Factory is easily spotted by their signature “The Cheesecake Factory” logo. Although this location is much smaller than the other branches, it definitely does not lack in décor, service, or the quality of food!
To be honest, eating healthy during my extremely busy days is hard. Like, really, really hard. When I’m pressed for time, I usually opt for whatever is closest to my next errand or I’ll just listen to my rumbling belly and walk into the next greasiest, artery clogging, fast food joint that I see. Making poor decision like this always discourages me from pursuing the healthy eating lifestyle that I desire and I always feel brainless for not preparing better. To be totally honest, I don’t always feel like lugging around a lunch box to different meetings or events in the city and I don’t always have the time to sit down and enjoy a hearty, healthy, and expensive meal (Center City healthy spots are always the most expensive places to eat for a quick lunch). Recently, I found out about Snap Kitchen which is a shop that creates healthy pre-made meals for busy people. You literally walk into the store and select a meal or two (or however many you would like), pay and enjoy when you have the time.
I’m not sure if you all know but National Dessert Day is officially on October 14th. Yes, you read that correctly, there is a whole day dedicated to delicious sweets! Don’t quote me on this BUT I heard that calories don’t count on National Dessert day. I can’t confirm or deny if that’s the truth but my gut says that it’s accurate. Normally, I try to ignore this significant day because my scale continues to give me disappointing numbers but this year, I was invited to celebrate National Dessert Day at the Grand Lux Café which is the baby sister of Cheesecake Factory. I couldn’t turn down the opportunity to experience the entire dessert menu of Grand Lux Café so I grabbed my hubby and we ventured our way to Grand Lux Café for a memorable dessert filled evening.
Hey, I'm Njeri!
