The Hornet, Denver, CO

Buffalo Burger with Sweet Potato Fries

The Hornet is a bar/restaurant in the South Broadway area of Denver, which I’ve heard is undergoing a revitalization and is becoming a trendy area. The Hornet has been around for a while now, but it was packed on a Thursday night and looked worth a try. The restaurant has a New American-type menu, with lots of burgers, sandwiches and salads, with dishes like pork ... Read More »

Snooze, Denver, CO

Pancake Flight

There is no shortage of breakfast restaurants in Denver, so I was surprised when more than one person steered me towards Snooze as I planned my recent trip to the mile high city. Snooze is a funky little breakfast place that sprang up in 2007 in downtown Denver and proved to be so popular that they expanded to three locations in the past couple of ... Read More »

La Cure Gourmande, Seville, Spain

La Cure Gourmande, the aftermath!

La Cure Gourmande has to be on of the sweetest looking shops in Seville, Spain. And, since it is a candy and cookie shop, it is probably one of the sweetest in general. The store is actually a French one, started in 1989 to preserve and share some traditional french recipes for butter cookies, hard candies, caramels, nougats and chocolates. Since the first store opened, ... Read More »

Los Italianos, Granada, Spain

Los Italianos with Customers

If you’re in Granada during the summer, a stop at Los Italianos is a must. This Italian ice creamery is a popular place and serves up some outstanding ice cream. The shop has unusual hours. It is open from 8am until midnight, and is closed during the winter (so, open from April – October, give or take a little). This makes sense when you consider ... Read More »

A Meal in Morocco

Moroccan Mint Tea

Part of the tour I took in Morocco involved a meal at a “traditional” Moroccan restaurant. It’s a safe bet that when you take a group tour – especially a big group tour – you’re not going to be getting the best or most authentic food you possibly could. My particular group wasn’t large, around 8 or 10 people including me, but the ferry company ... Read More »

Food on KLM Airlines

KLM Snack

Going to Spain, I flew on Air France, which I’ve flown on before. On the way home, I flew on KLM, which is a new airline for me. I wasn’t sure what to expect, as I hadn’t heard much about it, but I took it as a good sign that I hadn’t heard anything bad, either. It turns out that it was a good sign ... Read More »

Food from Spain: Gazpacho at McDonalds

Gazpacho at McDonalds

In Spain, many restaurants are close from 4pm to about 8pm, as lunch ends at 4 and dinner doesn’t start until after 8 (bars open later/earlier and serve tapas, of course). This wouldn’t be too much of a problem…. except when you’re a tourist and forget that you won’t be able to find many food options after spending that extra hour at a museum and ... Read More »

Pasteleria Lopez-Mezquita, Granada, Spain

PAstries at Lopez-Mezquita

Breakfast isn’t a big meal in Spain, for the most part, and so not that many places are open early in the morning. Fortunately, in Granada, the Pasteleria Lopez-Mezquita opens bright and early at about 9am for those who want to get a quick bite to eat before going to work or heading up to the Alhambra for some sightseeing. The Pasteleria has a cafe ... Read More »
