Noodle Time! Vegan Pho At Pho Luca’s

Our Richmond ‘Drinksgiving’ Dive Bars List!

What is a dive bar to us? A dive bar is anti trendy. There is no jumping on the newest anything, it is a bar with cheap drinks, sometimes decent food, and a bunch of regulars. You might be one of them. We might be too. Either way, we wanted to share what we have...

Noodle Time!: Jjampong At Noodles & Friends

Noodle Time!: Grace Noodle – Tonkotsu

I got really into ramen when I first moved to Los Angeles in 2014. The ramen craze hadn’t yet fully swept across the nation, and there was no ramen shop to be found in Durham, NC, where I was living before then. Well, actually, there was a certain butcher shop that...

Poppin’ (Sober) Bottles In The Ice

A bottle of the best Rosé Target had to offer -- ice cold, hold the glass.  I haven’t had a drink with alcohol in it since August 2020, and...

Noodle Time!: Vietnam 1 – Hoành Thánh Mì, or Sủi Cảo Mì

You’ve got to appreciate the audacity of a name like "Vietnam One.” Is it hubris? Or is it just a simple, memorable name for a family-owned restaurant in that Little Vietnam section of West Broad Street? Who cares?!? They’re nice people who make great food, and I don’t know why I’m bothering to play with their name like that. I actually...

The Mayor Of Two Street

Big Herm is cooking up a storm. Chicken sizzles on top of the grill in front of him. Potatoes dunk into the rolling boils of oil. Buns toast in the oven below. In the robust grills, fryers, and ovens of Big Herm’s Kitchen, the machinery keeps the galley kitchen feeling like a sweaty summer. By the door, boxes are filled to the brim with the...

Noodle Time: Duck Soup At Thai Studio

It was a Yelp search for “Duck Noodle Soup” that brought me to Thai Studio. Not many other options showed up on that list. I love a solid duck noodle soup, so I try to stay on the lookout wherever I find myself living. When I lived in Los Angeles, I took countless drives from Highland Park to Thai Town for the mouth-watering,...
