Nerd Food: Bubble Tea from Tea-Do in Ellicott City

Bubble tea is impossibly popular right now. From kiosks in the mall selling the delicious drink to kiosks in Disney World, you can find bubble tea almost everywhere now. In Baltimore (and the surrounding areas) alone there are dozens of tea shops. One such place is Tea-Do in Ellicott City! I played it safe and […]

Nerd Food: Smoke BBQ is the Perfect Way to Ring in Summer

There’s something about BBQ and warm June afternoons that make me feel like a kid again. Usually I just grill at home, but currently I don’t own grill. Luckily for me, Smoke in Cockeysville, MD makes some damn good BBQ. This modern American BBQ restaurant has two locations in Maryland — the aforementioned Cockeysville location, […]

Nerd Food: Potato Pancakes with House-Made Applesauce from Bauernmarket in Epcot

During Epcot’s Flower and Garden Festival, guests have the opportunity to try many new foods not commonly offered in Epcot. In the Germany Pavilion, the Bauernmarket kiosk offers German drinks and light fare such as this: potato pancakes with house-made applesauce! Potato pancakes with applesauce are nothing new to me — we eat them during […]

Nerd Food: Rice Cream at the Norway Pavilion in Epcot’s World Showcase

While spending time at Epcot last week, I did what I do best: try different types of food. This was an easy task since the Flower and Garden Festival was also going on, so there was even more food than normal! I admit that I seldom spend time in the Norway Pavilion. Since it’s mostly […]

Nerd Food: Having Lunch at Disney World’s Columbia Harbour House

Lunch time at Disney World can be particularly busy. I’ve always planned to eat either an early or late lunch, avoiding the 11:30 a.m.–1 p.m. crowds. Most lunch places don’t open till 11 a.m. in the parks anyhow, so I have a nice 30-minute window of mostly empty restaurants. Generally I try to eat at […]

Oh my gosh, I love mochi. It’s one of my favorite Japanese treats. Not sure what mochi is?

This time I’m having it with a […]

Nerd Food: Get Energized with Green Tea from Tenzo Tea

I tend to wake up everyday at 5 a.m. Most days I function just fine and I’m usually in bed by 10. But some days (like today) I’m up later for various reasons. I don’t really like to rely on traditional energy drinks to keep me going, and I don’t drink a lot of coffee. […]

Nerd Food: Nitro Punch in the Face Cold Brew Coffee from Backyard Beans

Ooooh, coffee. I don’t drink it terribly often, but when I do, I like it strong. Backyard Beans makes a number of coffees for you to pick from, but I was instantly drawn to their Nitro Punch in the Face Cold Brew Coffee. Backyard Beans was even cool enough to provide a handy dandy video […]

May is a big Star Wars month. Between May the Fourth and the release of Solo: A Star Wars Story, there’s plenty of Star Wars to go around. Naturally, this means there’s plenty of food out there too.

Nerd Food: Dragon Plum Candy from Japan Crate

Traditional Japanese candy and cuisine have been a staple in my diet for some time. I know I’ve been talking about Japan Crate a lot lately, and for good reason.
