The weather is steadily getting colder, and we even had a bit of snow this past week. When it turns colder we often look to our favorite comfort foods. Locally Richmond Foodie spots sure do provide those comfort foods to keep our bellies warm and happy.
Every week we spotlighting our favorite local restaurants with the best #RVAFoodie finds around town. We’ll be searching weekly for the best of delicious local food porn in our community, from amazing restaurants to chefs, food trucks, pop-ups and more. Here’s a few close-to-home favorites this week to follow on Instagram. Stay warm and happy Richmond!

#RVAFoodie This Week
#Pozole La Milpa brings the classic real Mexican cooking with fresh ingredients and many types of meats to choose from. Here is a traditional soup for your soul.
#HuevosRancheros My love is great for you, it grows steadily daily. Oak and Apple providing me with my favorite morning starter.
#VeganChili Our friends at Nile have been providing delicious Ethiopian food here in RVA for many years. You just can go wrong with Nile. Here is a new one from Nile with a classic vegan chili — of course now with the spice, so we can have omnipresence and transcend time and space.

#ChikenParm This Sandwich looks like it should be on my plate right now. It looks pretty perfect, honestly. Great winter warmer here to get you right for the day.
#TeaTime Blue Atlas here with a Tea Time to dream about. This looks like a fantastic plan. I’m so for everything I see here from some of our local spots.
#VeganTaco Looking pretty legit here, you’ve got to admit. Fresca has your vegetarian and vegan needs ready to go. Check the plant-based creations they make daily on their page.
#BokaTako Oh how I miss a Boka Taco. They were one of the original food truck mobile taco trucks I was able to get. I loved their flair and fusion mix with the tacos. Do believe its time for another visit now. TAKO ME
#Tamales Abuelita’s is another hot spot for real Mexican food. These fellas look ready to go for you. Lots of choices on how you want these made, with classic meats and some mixes with cactus, plus other fun yummy choices.
#SeaBass It’s one of my favorite fish, to both catch and eat. Buttery goodness and if done right, it’s a perfect light and enjoyable meal. This one looks super fancy — the plating here looks like art. Good stuff. I give it a 9.4.
#CrispyDuck This is my new favorite spot for Thai food. Their drunken noodle is some seriously good comfort food for me. Get it Thai hot if you want the real thing. This place is small but packs a punch, great for an order out as well.
#FootballCake Sweet Fix makes the most beautiful and intricate cakes. Amanda from Sweet Fix is family — you know, she made my wedding cake. So the love runs deep. Seriously amazing creations, just check the page and you will be like “That’s a cake?” — then answer “That’s a cake!!”
#AmazingGelato This is a staple for me in Richmond. It’s one of the best and most classic types of Ice Cream. It’s straight-up amazing. Nothing compares really, it’s worth a 30-some minute trip to it, and then 30 back, for me and family. If you have allergies, this spot has you covered, more than likely — it was an absolute saving grace for us. If you have not visited, I highly recommend doing so. Yummy supreme!
That’s all for this week’s #RVAFoodie. See you next week, Richmond!
