Bigham Tavern – Brunch

Go Bigham or Go Home. I definitely did not want to go home from this local Mount Washington joint. If you're looking for a good brunch spot with tasty drinks and lively vibes to cure a hangover on a Saturday or Sunday, then Bigham Tavern should be your go-to. ~~~ Naturally, I was nursing a hangover [...]

M3 – May

This month in M3 (Mercato’s Meatball of the Month), they decided to make a pepperoni pizza ball with a zesty pizza sauce - sounds like some good drunk eats to me. My pizza balls were placed over a tomato risotto because I thought that would work really well with the sauce. However, I was not entirely thrilled [...]

Healthy Chicken Nuggets

Thinking back to when I was super picky (lol), I'm pretty sure 86% of my diet consisted of chicken nuggets. They could've been from McDonald's, Burger King, or a freezer bag - I just needed them every day. Although my need for nugs has decreased, my love for them has stayed the same. Try this healthy [...]

Giovanni’s

Hello and happy TGI🍕F. This weeks pizza destination was Giovanni's on 6th Ave in downtown Veridian - er, Pittsburgh rather. CHEESE: Giovanni's cheese was mediocre. There wasn't much to it, but it didn't take away from the slice. Quite disappointing to say, as I feel the past few pizza joints have had the same do-nothing-for-the-slice cheese. DOUGH: [...]

Kaya

If you're looking for a cool bar scene, outdoor seating, and food that will send your taste buds on a wild ride, then head over to Kaya in the Strip District. This 'exotic and lively' cuisine inspired by the Caribbean, South America, Pacific, and beyond, was more unique than anything I've found in Pittsburgh yet. We [...]

3-Ingredient Pesto Stuffed Chicken

Now talk about an easy, healthy, weeknight dinner. This three ingredient pesto stuffed chicken was so good and there wasn't much to it. What you'll need for 4-6 servings: 3 chicken breasts Pesto Low-fat mozzarella Preheat the oven to 400F Cut a slit into each chicken breast that does not go through the back - [...]

Ten Penny – Brunch

One thing I've learned about Pittsburgh is that downtown brunches are far and few between, especially on a Saturday. But I have been to Ten Penny a few times to satisfy my hangover from Friday night (or satisfy the hair of the dog). ~~~ This visit, I got the granola, bruleed grapefruit, and the Ten [...]

Mama Lucia’s

Hello and happy TGI🍕F. I apologize for missing the past two weeks as a combination of visiting family and travel prohibited me from my usual pizza tasting and review. Now back in Pittsburgh, the quest for the Burgh's best pizza is back on! Today we visited Mamma Lucia's in the heart of downtown for a [...]

Yinzer Eats in Boston

I got the pleasure of visiting Teddy's hometown recently - Boston. I can see why he loves the city, but still don't get why he loves their sports since he now lives in the real City of Champyinz. Jokes aside, you have to go to Boston if you've never been. There's so many different neighborhoods [...]

M3 – April

This month in M3 (Mercato’s Meatball of the Month), they took a classic Italian dish and turned it into a ball. They went with a veal marsala ball - and I decided to put it over spätzle, as suggested by my waiter. This was a good take on the dish - the ball itself had a delicious [...]
