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 … Continue reading Mama Lucia’s

DeMore’s Pizzeria

Hello and happy TGI🍕F! Now I don't listen to the radio (its 2017 and I stream like everybody else), but 100.7 Star claims DeMore's Pizzeria has the best pizza in Pittsburgh. Thus, I traveled to Millvale for two reasons: 1.) to investigate the radio's bold proclamation, and 2.) DeMore's gave us a free pie in exchange for … Continue reading DeMore’s Pizzeria

German Rouladen

In English, Rouladen means rolls; so these are basically beef rolls, what sounds better than that? Here's a little background for ya - since my grandparents came from Germany, I like to learn as many of our old family recipes as possible (s/o to my Oma for this gem). Bonus: it's fairly easy, yet so … Continue reading German Rouladen

Casellula @ Alphabet City

Fistly, I need to talk about Casellula's atmosphere. Two words: neat-o. It's a big space that is shared with City of Asylum for their performances, which occur during dinners even (we got lucky with a poetry reading)! Another interesting trait is Casellula's no-tipping policy. It really cultivates a strong bond between the whole team. Only issue … Continue reading Casellula @ Alphabet City

Condado Tacos

With their grand opening on Taco Tuesday this week, I had to visit Condado Tacos - located on the corner of Liberty and 10th... ...and what a fun visit it was. The vibes here are definitely all good: each wall is hand-painted differently, they use mason jars as beer glasses, have a friendly staff, and an intimate space with more … Continue reading Condado Tacos

Buffalo Bolognese

Why buffalo? I'm glad you asked. It is one of the most protein-rich/lean meats you can find out there that still tastes delicious. Look at the health benefits compared to the other meats! And where do you find it in the Burgh? Easy. Strip District Meats. Oh, and this one's for all you fellow spaghetti squash lovers … Continue reading Buffalo Bolognese

Yinzer Eats in Chicago

What a whirlwind of a weekend it was. I saw green rivers, had one too many cocktails, and enjoyed tons of different foods that Chicago had to offer me. Huge s/o to my friends for making it a weekend to remember. Day 1: Lou Malnati's: Naturally our first meal in Chicago was deep dish pizza. … Continue reading Yinzer Eats in Chicago

Eddie V’s

Eddie V's, a new hotspot that just opened in the Union Trust Building is something worth mentioning. I was lucky enough to get reservations the week it opened (s/o mom), and I am ready to go back. Since this is a seafood restaurant, I of course decided to get all seafood and definitely didn't regret it. I will … Continue reading Eddie V’s

Aiello’s Pizza

Hello and TGI🍕F! Aiello’s [i-ello's] Pizza, located on busy Murray Ave in Squirrel Hill, was requested by one of our avid readers and is consequently the subject of today’s review. So, a lesson here is learned: if you’d like to have your favorite pie/neighborhood pizzeria featured on Yinzer Eats, scroll on over to our ‘Contact’ … Continue reading Aiello’s Pizza

Happy National Meatball Day

Happy National Meatball Day! What better way to celebrate than to start my monthly review of M3 (Mercato's Meatball of the Month)! If you aren't aware, one of downtown Pittsburgh's most popular bar/restaurant does a meatball of the month - and I never miss out. I'll make sure to always try it incase you can't. ~~~ … Continue reading Happy National Meatball Day

Choco Banana Bread

So it's International Women's Day. And what woman doesn't like chocolate? "If a woman is upset, hold her and tell her how beautiful she is. If she starts to growl, retreat to a safe distance and throw chocolate at her." Since I've been on this health kick the past couple months, I needed to find … Continue reading Choco Banana Bread

Eggplant Lasagna

I just tried this dish for the first time the other night. It's pretty easy to make (even for big groups), tastes amazing, and is a super healthy alternative to a normal lasagna. Cottage cheese instead of ricotta? Just trust me on this one... Eggplant Lasagna Eggplant(s) Fat-free cottage cheese Low-fat mozzarella Parmesan cheese Almond … Continue reading Eggplant Lasagna
