Freshe Poke -1102 Huger St, Columbia, SC
Freshe Poke is one of those places that kind of does for sushi what Chipotle, Moe’s, etc. have done for the burrito, which is deconstructed the rolled food, put it into a bowl, and make it choose your own ingredients fast food style. Just as burrito places were taking over around ten years ago, now is the age of the sushi bowl. That’s not necessarily a bad thing.

Blaze Pizza -275 Park Terrace Dr Columbia, SC
Ok, so Blaze Pizza is a chain, but it’s a chain that I’ve decided that I really like. The “make your pizza in front of you” restaurants are popping up all over the place, just like frozen yogurt stores were a few years ago, so it can be difficult to know which one has the best taste for your buck. Before going to see a movie with some friends from the First Young Professionals group, we decided to grab dinner. I had had a tumultuous few days and played no part in the decision making, but pizza sounded as good as anything. Continue reading →
The Devine Cinnamon Roll Deli – 2617 Devine St. Columbia, SC
You’ve probably already been to The Devine Cinnamon Roll Deli. With it’s amazing food and great, friendly service, it didn’t take long for locals and shortly after, The Food Network, to take notice of this gem. I would like to do the hipster thing and say that I discovered it right before it became huge. One Friday morning, I got up early, made my way over to Devine Street, and ordered 10 huge cinnamon rolls for the office. I met owner Jody Kreusch and even spoke to her about doing a food blog on the restaurant. She was enthusiastic about it, as was I, but things got in the way and I didn’t make it back over there … until now.
Pizza Party! Domino’s is doing better than you’d think.
Nothing conjures up feelings of childhood joy like a pizza party. I can still remember waiting with much anticipation and school for the rare treat of getting pizza in the afternoon for something that the class had won/accomplished. It maybe happened three times in my elementary school career, but nevertheless, it was awesome.
10th Annual Dessert Contest SPECIAL EDITION
The 10th Annual Orchestra Night and Dessert Contest was earlier this month and it was a great time once again. I talked a little junk beforehand and was beaten by two other ladies, Ada Raybon and Teresa Milne. Check out the little video below where I talk about my Brookie and the fact that neither Ada or Teresa would be in the video with me. Then get the recipes after the video.

Poke Bros. – 2009 Greene St #102, Columbia, SC
When one of my cooler-than-me designer friends breezed through Columbia from Nashville for a visit, she messaged me about meeting up. This is one of those friends who usually tells me where we’re going, which is oddly nice for me since I’m often the one having to decide where to eat. Often she picks somewhere I haven’t been or haven’t been in a long while. She still enjoys the Five Points area, while I often avoid it. Because I’m old. And I don’t like don’t like being irritated. But Five Points has been getting some culinary upgrades and shouldn’t be written off as just the college bar area anymore.
