Tag 5 other people (preferably from other countries/states) and let them know they’ve been tagged. **See bottom**


1. Billy's Seafood: A small restaurant near the uptown section of the city, Billy's is one of my favorite places to go. (I can only go here if there's money in my pocket, someone important is coming to visit, like my parents, (Who, for the record, haven't been) or, if someone else is paying...) It's located in the old Farmer's Market and also has a full fish market where you can buy goodies to take home. My favorite starter order at Billy's is their fresh calamari, sliced thinly, deep fried, and topped with grated parm. It's served with a delicious marinara sauce. I can't get enough, I'd eat it every day if I could. For my main course, I love their live lobster from the tank. Boiled to perfection, served with a wedge of lemon, and hot drawn butter. Amazing. I wear the bib, get dirty, suck the butter off my fingers, and love every second of it.

2. Vito's Dining Room and Lounge: This is your usual pizza joint with a little bit of a higher class atmosphere. You can eat in or take out and it's a good time. The place is chock full of delicious treats; amazing caesar salad, cheesy as hell garlic cheese fingers, great pizza, and scrumtious desserts. If you're feeling lucky, you can eat in the lounge and throw some money away at the slot machines too. There's only four of them but you can try your luck.

3. Jake's Steakhouse: This place is a quick fix when I need to leave the mall to eat. It's right across the street and they serve some good food. There's only so much eating in a dark back room, or food court I can handle. They serve a mean spaghetti, and their steaks are delicious and cheap. That's what counts right?

4. Cora's: AMAZING. I am in love with Cora's. I go here for breakfast when I can afford it, or can bother getting up early enough on a day off to enjoy it. They also serve lunch, but the breakfast is where it's at. Their menu is amazing, the food is fantastic, and you can watch people as they prepare your meals. Choices offered all have fun names and they specialize in fresh fruit smoothies as starters. Menu items include such delights as; crepes filled with a shitload of stuff like Nutella, fruit,
crème anglaise, and pretty much anything else you could ever imagine. My favorite thing to order here is something called the "1980's Harvest." This meal includes the following: One egg cooked any style, your choice of bacon, ham, or sausage, a brioche, (which is basically a cinnamon roll that's been cut in half, dipped in French Toast batter, and fried accordingly...I know. WTF. Amazing? Yes.) and a MOUNTAIN of fresh fruit. I pretty much get this every time I go there. I can't sway myself to get anything else, it's got it all.

5. Jungle Jim's: This crazy restaurant is always good for a laugh. The
décor is absolutely hilarious. Parrots, swinging monkeys, tiki torches, lanterns, you get the picture. There's always music playing and lots of people. The food is amazing and has hilarious names like Hippo Burgers, Rhino Ribs, and The Kitchen Sink. I always get the chicken taquitos and then depending on my mood, a pasta dish, or some ribs. They also have a crazy drink called the Jumbo Hurricane. One of these can pretty much get me a good snap on.

Since I know that most of you won't do this tag, I won't put you through the agony of having to do it. If you'd like to, please, I'd love to read it, if not, I won't hold it against you.

Nicole Tan: They are some pretty great restaurants! My pleasure! I'll pass it along and see who else wants to do it.
