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!

Organisoul

Glendale Heights, Il.

Cavatelli Trio

Mouthwatering and by far the Best Vodka sauce around. 

Wok n fire Wheaton, Il. 

Coconut shrimp

Ky’s Vegas roll was a chef special just for the blog. Amazingly beautiful and delicious. 

Blackberry Market

Right in the heart of the quaint little downtown area of Glen Ellyn, Il. this cute little Breakfast spot is the perfect destination for a healthy bowl of steel cut oats with Black Berries and Walnuts. For only $3.50 this is a great alternative to fast food. Only downfall was it was a 20 minute wait with only a handful of customers seated and 7 employees behind the counter. 

Definitely would still recommend this spot because of the many food and drink options and very affordable prices.

NY Famous Pizza & Falafel Grill

Paneer Tikka, basmati rice and falafel for a late lunch. Reminds me of the texture of French toast😀
Nice staff. Not sure if they’d ever dealt with someone with allergies before but they accomidated nicely. I wanted spicy pili pili but it had soy. So we opted for just spicy sauce instead. I was happy with it. 

$9 Sunday meal 

(enough for 2 meals for me)
They also had a fresh smoothie bar with a lot of fun healthy options.something to check out next time.

Blueberry Hill Breakfast Cafe

​Went outside my Sunday Norm (eggs benedict) and ordered a big juicy skirt, steak 4 eggs, veggies, and gluten free pancakes. I could only eat a third of this. Lol 

Service was Great. Even on a Sunday at 8am. I sat down right away and food was prompt. Thank you Amy for explaining great gluten free low carb options. $9.86 before tip (with my $15 Groupon)

Mike’s Donuts and Chicken is just a hop skip and jump over the border of Il/WI

One thing I’ve been craving is Bacon Donuts and boy was I not disappointed. These Praline Bacon Donuts were Amazing. Just a touch of salty and sweet with a light fluffy donut.$2.50 each

And to my surprise they also had Biscuits and gravy! The best I’ve ever had! Rich creamy gravy with chunks of meat and crispy potatoes. Yum. Only around $6 for a half an order

The fun part was they have about 20 different varieties of donuts. Here’s a few more.

Oreo

Smores

And Andes Mints

Mini trip to Wisconsin. 1st stop Mars Cheese Castle

I Headed North to Wisconsin to find my favorite cheese this weekend and met some amazing people along the way.

I’ve been on the hunt for Grand Cru Surchoix for months now. I love the nutty flavor and goes well with my full body robust red wines that I love. For less than $5 I was able to get a wedge to share. (It retails at $22 lb)

I look forward to visiting in June when the remodel is complete. 

Thanks so much Kim, Brenda , Linda and Cece! Great suggestion Kyle G.

And to the guys from schaumburg. I’ll be hitting the donutplace soon!
