Spicy Yellowtail and veggie Maki


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

GF/ AF Expo Schaumburg

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.

Asian slaw w/ Chicken20170409_090935_HDR_20170409092912163_20170409093241292

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!

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!
