Roadtrip Review: Mamma's Caribbean Grill

Today's choice off the Breakfast Menu is the Mamma's Caribbean Grill in Charlotte, NC.

We went out for a night on the town and a quick urban spoon search pointed us to Mamma's Caribean Grille as a good late night option for a Saturday night. We were impressed by  the spicy food and good times with good friends. 

Road Trip Review: Price's Chicken Coop

Today's choice off the breakfast menu was prices chicken coop:
I had a snafu at Eddie's place. The batteries in my camera went dead so what I had to go back to the hotel to charge them. That gave me and the wife an opportunity to take a nap. When we woke she was, of course, hungry so we decided to grab some food. It was Saturday so we have the opportunity to stop at prices chicken coop. Price’s chicken coop is a little chicken shack south of Charlotte that was spoken highly of on urban spoon. Thankfully I was not disappointed.

Roadtrip Review: Eddie's Place

Today's choice off the Breakfast Menu is Eddie's Place in Charlotte, NC.

Eddie's Place was a quick pick. I needed a place close to our hotel. As far as the map was concerned it was just a few miles away, but there was construction on the main road so it took us 45 minutes to get there. Eddie's place is more a bar than restaurant but their menu looked good so we thought we were in for a treat.

Roadtrip Review: Mac's Speed Shop

Tonight's choice was Mac's Speed Shop South End in Charlotte NC

For our first Dinner in Charlotte I picked this place because my friends said they wanted to try some barbeque. Unfortunately by the time they got out of Heroes Con it was too late for most of the BBQ spots as they closed at 9. Urban Spoon said that Mac's Speed Shop was open late and offered good food for a decent price. I was glad I chose it.

Roadtrip Review: Zada Janes Cafe

Today's choice off the Breakfast Menu is the Amaretto French Toast from Zada Janes Cafe in Charlotte, NC.

It was our first day in Charlotte and we had to Brunch, because that is how we roll. The wife, Mrs. Huddleston and I hit the streets for a little Brunch. I chose Zada janes because it was a leftover from last year that we didn’t get a chance to hit. The place was decent but not great. The service was excellent but there were a few things that missed the mark, particularly for a place that was once listed as the best breakfast in Charlotte.
Zada Janes is a trendy little place that is in a little area of Charlotte where a lot of other restaurants in Charlotte are, particularly restaurants recommended by Urban spoon and Charlotte’s urban magazine Creative Loafing. The place definitely had a hipster vibe to it with quirky menu titles. I will say that they have one of the worst websites in the world. There is weird music playing and obscure imagery. I am not sure why i…

Recipe: Lemon Blueberry Pancakes

Today at TBM central we made Lemon Blueberry Pancakes

I am not usually a fan of pancakes, mostly because of my preference for French Toast. After perusing the website The Carnal Dish, I saw a recipe for Lemon Blueberry Pancakes and thought it might be nice to try. I always have blueberries in the fridge because my son loves them, and I love a good smoothie. I had to remember to pick up lemon, but I figured it would be worth it. The pancakes turned out magnificent. They were fluffy, flavorful and rich.
