Dining Delights: Sweet Basil

It isn’t Super Bowl Sunday without pizza & breadsticks, right? It just so happens that I reside near a small pizzeria that has quality pizza, and by far, the most amazing pesto breadsticks — Sweet Basil! You can definitely taste the authenticity and love put into each slice of pizza. Sweet Basil was opened up back in 2012 by the former owner of Yaya’s Flame Broiled Chicken. Olympian Pizza:Β Red sauce base, blend of three cheeses, pepperoni, sausage, fresh mushrooms, red onions and red pepper flakes Β  Basil Bread: Pesto sauce with a blend of mozzarella and provolone cheese an sprinkled with garlic salt. These gluttonous temptations will be calling my name from the kitchen all day long…

Dining Delights: Bangkok Peppers

Thai food — oh how I love you. Maybe it’s the rich flavor or the spice & heat… or maybe it’s just because it’s SO GOOD! Tonight I went out to dinner with my boyfriend and his grandma to Bangkok Peppers for some good ole Thai food. So, where I grew up, there were TONS of Thai food restaurants around me. Heck, I could go to probably three different Bangkok Cuisines or Little Thai Express within 15 minutes. That said, it was quite a transition to move to a city where I was afraid that not even ONE was near me. Thankfully, Bangkok Peppers came the rescue.

Dining Delights: Take Sushi

Happy Thursday! Has this week been crawling to the finish line or what? The one thing that was getting me through the day was knowing that a platter of sushi was waiting for me. I got together with an old friend today for a sushi date at one of my favorite places in Rochester: Take Sushi. Not only are you greeted with a smiling face, but these people have the greatest hospitality ever! This has become one of my go-tos in the area. Upon taking your seat, you are brought a warm wet hand towel to cleanse your hands along with the beverage of your choice. Prior to the meal, enjoy complimentary miso soup and a ginger house salad. And before you know it, the sushi platter is coming your way!
