Eat Of The Week

You’d think after the Restaurant Roulette review on The Country Buffet that I’d be avoiding buffets like the plague. Granted, we don’t have a lot to choose from in the first place, but when a Cohere colunch at Star Of India was set up, I didn’t think twice. I truly enjoy the food there, and feel like it’s the best Indian food we have in Fort Collins.

I hadn’t been in a while, so I was excited to see how things were going and indulge a little. I was not disappointed. It still lives up to my expectations from my initial review – bright, crisp, distinct flavors, compared to the other Indian restaurants in town who all have dull, muted, slow-cooked flavors. I could not get enough Chicken Tandoori, Saag, and Nan, and happily went back for a second plate.

On our way out I noticed that they have my review of them mounted on a large plaque on the wall. I got a chuckle out of that, and was happy considering they’ve kept up with the quality (I cringe when this happens and places let quality slip and it’s no longer reflective of the review).

So, great food, good conversation with fantastic people and smiles on the way out – talk about a good Eat Of The Week!



Dam Good Tacos

One of the biggest challenges as a food writer is making boring food something interesting to read about. Often times I fail, and it’s just as painfully boring to write as it is to suffer through the text as a reader.

Well, since having the super flu last week (and still somewhat recovering), I’ve lost my writing mojo. Add that in with an average restaurant that I wasn’t particularly impressed with, and I sat at my laptop screen preparing to write another uninspired review. Until I figured I’d just write a haiku in slide format.

So, there we have it.

Eat Of The Week

We all have comfort foods for every occasion. Pho is mine when I’m in need of some soup for the soul.

The other day I had an intense craving for some Pho after days of eating Campbell’s soup and crackers (and typing that out triggers the gag reflexes – if I never eat Campbell’s again, I’ll be fine). So, Bill being the awesome husband that he is grabbed some Pho for takeout from Youngs Cafe for me.

There’s something about the sweet and savory broth that revitalizes the mind, and something about the hearty yet light rice noodles that nourishes the body.

After chowing down on a large bowl, I sent a text to Bill. “OMG, I really needed that. I feel so much better already <3″

This Eat Of The Week was the best thing I ate all week.
