Hola Everyone!

Seems like forever since I did a blogpost. Sorry to keep you all waiting, school has been kicking my butt...again. When I saw a small opening of freedom I used it to do all the things I managed to hold off on including writing this post. WHOOP! Anywho, I hope everyone had a good Valentine's Day weekend. Whatever that means. I basically stuff my face with chocolate and watch The Golden Girls all weekend. As you may figured out already, I really love The Golden Girls. 

So, to celebrate Valentine's Day in a big way, I decided to come back to my first love. Of course it's food! Yummy, tasty, mouth-watering food. Just thinking about food makes me all dreamy eye right know. I'm a proud fat kid at heart! So, you can only imagine my excitement when I finally was able to experience Center City Restaurant Week. Even though I only visited 4 restaurants, it was the best food I ever tasted in my life. What made it so great was that it was 4 totally different restaurants and types of food. I got to try Mexican, French, Thai & Indian, all delicious in its own right. 

Center City Restaurant Week was a great way to try new foods while also discovering all the great places to dine in Philadelphia for really great prices. It was basically a foodie dream. I'm already counting down the days to the next restaurant week in the summer. I couldn't remember every meal I had but trust me when I say every bite of it was heaven. For instance, the chicken in cranberry sauce at Lolita's was surprisingly a dream come true. Next time, I have to take notes of everything I had so other people can experience the awesomeness. Special thanks to my family and friends for being good sports while I drag them to all the restaurants with me.  Be sure to check out the restaurants I visited listed below and let me know what you think!

See Ya!
