Anyone who pays attention to our updates knows that we are not only quickly rising up as one of the hottest comic books, but that we are also expanding our horizons with food! Everywhere we go, we find the places that everyone is talking about and then put them to the Food Hound’s test!
Since starting this venture in the foodie world, we’ve discovered and experienced some of the most amazing restaurants and eateries. So far we’ve been to about twenty different spots, and I’m gonna lay out my personal favorite 5 for you!! This list was NOT easy to put together, and even harder to list them in any order…so this is not a “top 5” but a “favorite 5”.
#5 – Tacos Locos
Tacos Locos was actually the first Tidbit we ever did. Story behind it was simple, Mina wanted a burrito for breakfast. The spot is nice and cozy, and right down the road from the convention center in Chicago, so if you’re there for a comic-con, trade show, or just in the area, check this place out.
#4 – Mozaik
While in Columbus we got to see a lot of different sites. For example, the Pumpkin Show! We had a lot of fun there, but nothing will compare to our finger food experience at Mozaik! This club is a little more on the swank end of the stick, but we have no problem with that, all sorts of people come in to hang out and have a good time. We had a blast, me especially since I got some Scotch, YUM! Can’t wait to go back again!
#3 – Turf ‘N Surf Po-Boy
Austin is town to EAT! Yes sir, there are so many restaurants, food trailers, dives… so much to fill your belly with. Turf ‘N Surf is one of the food trailers, but they do it a little differently than other trailers. Everything about the place is green, from the materials used to put it all together, to the fact that everything is fresh and healthy! Lots of fish, plenty of greens! I love this spot and you NEED NEED NEED to eat here when you’re in Austin!
#2 – West Tavern
When it comes to having fun, the Hound family knows how to get down. We threw our very own after party for Wizard World Chicago. We had drinks, karaoke, and a ton of talent come down to join us at the West Tavern. The spot is also the home of the one and only Dirty Chef!! He is the creator of the amazing Dirty Dust, and he makes it on everything. His two hottest items are the burgers and wings. Best. Chicken. Wings. EVER.
#1 – Fogo De Chao
Ever hear of Brazilian churrascaria? It’s Brazilian BBQ! Fogo De Chao is the best churrascaria I’ve ever had. The meats were super delicious, always fresh, always coming out! In fact, meat doesn’t stop coming to your table with your meat card on go. Everything from beef, to pork and chicken…they have everything. They also have an amazing salad bar, with already made salads and different ingredients so you can make your own as well. And forget about the dessert… one word: flan. Get it, you will not regret never trying the gelatinous sweet treat that it is. I cannot, will not, and shall not stop drooling when thinking of Fogo. 5 stars, two thumbs up, you go here now.
