Seeing as how obesity is such an issue in today’s world, it’s no surprise that we are bombarded with foods and drinks that claim to help lose weight. It’s always an added bonus when we find something that helps lose weight AND tastes delicious! Recently, I stumbled upon a bright exciting bottle of Uve’… I had never heard of it, but in true courageous style I tried it. I grabbed a bottle of Sparkling Superfruit and chugged away. It was as refreshing as the packaging design indicated and I wasn’t overwhelmed with the same pang of guilt I typically get when grabbing a soda. I was so into this new find that I ventured to their website to see just how “healthy” it was and I was pleasantly surprised to find that these folks did some major homework! Continue Reading
Why? Because THAT is the address of The River Grille – One of the most amazing restaurants I’ve ever been to and one of the best restaurants YOU will ever go to! Simply divine is an understatement! Chef Roth really came to the plate and hit a grand slam with the menu and with everything my wife and I enjoyed recently for dinner!
Artie, the Restaurant’s General Manager greeted us the moment we got there and we sat at a nice, cozy booth! He informed us about some of the history of River Grille, a Continue Reading
I drove by Wally’s Wicked Wings several times over the past few weeks and I KNEW it would be out of this world once I actually stopped! It had the word “Wings” in it’s name… WIN / WIN for me! I was not let down when my good friend, Bristen and I went for a ‘guys night out’ this past week. Don’t get me wrong, Wally’s is great for the guys but while we were there we saw an array of groups having a great time. Families were their with their kids in the game room section of Wally’s (kids get free $$$ to play Continue Reading
Recently we had the pleasure of dining at the all new “Sugars” Stage & Spirits located pretty much at the corner of 987 (Airport Rd’s end) and Point Phillips Road in Bath PA! The former Klecknersville Hotel has been a staple in the Valley for decades and Sugars did an amazing job with their own personal remodel, yet keeping the integrity of the building intact! We were all very much into Sugars 50’s Pin Up Girl Vibe when we got into the foyer. Continue Reading
I remember when I first started eating sushi. I quickly ascended into a culinary obsession for the Japanese fast food. Fortunately, living in the flourishing suburbs of Philadelphia allowed me to indulge whenever I wanted to as there was an amazing tiny Japanese restaurant close to my home in Doylestown, Pennsylvania called “Ooka”. The restaurant was so small it couldn’t have sat more than 15 people, while the rest of the space housed a huge fish tank with some beautiful gold fish and a couple of exotic koi . Truly a hidden gem.
That was Ooka Sushi at least ten years ago. A couple years ago, it went through a major overhaul and has doubled in size. In addition to the extra space it’s received an incredible contemporary look, complete with glowing bar and multiple hibachi tables. Ooka brings you a sense of the elite interior decor of a high end Miami nightclub in sleepytown suburbia, a refreshing change of pace. In addition to the ambience, Ooka offers a diversified menu of sushi rolls to choose from as well as the typical faves. One of my absolute adorations is the “New York Roll”, fresh Salmon, with Fuji Apple. To die for. Ooka, also has a nice collection of Sake’s to compliment any taste.
Ooka is great for impressing a date or just a casual business meeting, but call ahead to make sure it isn’t crazy busy. Ooka, has built up quite a reputation over the last few years, and has couple locations to boast their status. In 2010, Philadelphia Magazine named Ooka “Best of Philly 2010” for “Best Sushi”. Not to pat my own back, but I was saying that 8 years ago…. If you’re a foodie and like to try new places, Ooka Doylestown is perfect. Located in a bustling little town with lots to do, give it a try, you won’t be sorry.

On a whim my wife and I stopped at the Lehigh Valley mall to walk around the other day. We went around noon and decided we were hungry so we looked for some food. Instead of the same old fired or fast food we found “The Pita Pit”. We stopped in and found a pretty diverse menu including some vegetarian entrees.
The Pita Pit explains that they were “founded on the idea that people want an exciting alternative to fast food restaurants—a place with great tasting food that’s healthy, fresh, and still served fast.” Continue Reading
