I love coming out to Wheaton Marianos Market to visit Chef Tong. Today he made me a Special Yellowtail and Veggie Maki. (It had cucumber, jalapeno, and avocado with Yellowtail and Lime on top.)
I love Japanese food but have to careful because of my allergies to soy, Thats why I enjoy eating here so often.
$8.50 Special Order

What a great turnout for the Gluten Free and Allergy Free Expo in Schaumburg today! I would have to say 90% of the people took advantage of the great deal on Groupon for $15 for 2 people for the entire weekend. I know I did! #gfafexpo
So here’s just a few of the vendors I sampled and enjoyed. I will post more tomorrow on day #2.
Banana Bread French Toast
Asian slaw w/ Chicken
Corned Beef & Roast Beef Sandwich
Just a mile or so off the Expressway Dinos Cafe in Bloomingdale is sure to have something for everyone.
When I’m super hungry I love coming here because they have rather large portion sizes and so many entrees to choose from, many under $10.
I met the New owner and she was absolutely fabulous along with my waitress Amy. They were more than accommodating with my food allergies which is hard to find at a lot of restaurants. Thank you again P. And I definitely will be back to try your weekday specials under $7
*They also have amazing Skillets, Eggs Benedict and corned Beef hash which I’ve had previously!
Located on Lake St. Next to DD and across from Caputos Bloomingdale, Il.
Although I knew most restaurants would be busy on a Sunday for brunch, I lucked out and only had to wait about ten mins. My waitress was Awesome. (Be sure to ask for Nicolette.) I’d highly recommend. Fast, fulfilling and friendly cafe in Roselle Illinois. With plenty of options for everyone!
I love visiting farmers markets and picking up fresh fruits but when I can’t, I still like to be creative with my food.
My twist on dessert.
