As I mentioned last month, I have recently entered the world of full-time working mom. Unfortunately, my son didn’t get the memo about mom’s return to work, so life continues to go full throttle into this new year. Luckily for me, and the rest of the Tuscaloosa community, a heaven-sent business has opened up to feed all us busy folk in T-town!
It’s football season, and that means two things: it’s time to Roll with the Tide in BDS – and it’s time to eat! Whether you’re a hungry out-of-towner or a local, everyone can agree that Tuscaloosa offers up some of the best game day eats around. Here are some of my favorite suggestions for places to grab a bite – before or after the game. RTR!
Did someone say cheese? Grilled cheese? Yes. Yes, they did, and it’s on a food truck. On June 1, Cheese Louise made its Tuscaloosa debut, with Lee Decker, Billy Swift, Jon Harris, and James Bates behind the wheel.
Have you ever wanted to walk into a restaurant and feel like you were in someone’s cozy-yet-upscale kitchen? I promise you are not alone. For the residents of Tuscaloosa, Real & Rosemary provides an atmosphere that is fresh, bright, and intentionally comforting.
Nearly 100 years ago, the “I Scream, You Scream, We All Scream for Ice Cream” novelty song was born. And all these years later, ice cream continues to be a staple dessert for joyful celebrations or a potential late-night snack. There’s no doubt it’s been hot in Tuscaloosa this summer, but once again, fear not my friends, the businesses of Tuscaloosa and Northport have heard our screams for ice cream, and they deliver big. Here are a few of my favorites this summer…
And the burger bash continues! Last month, I shared a few of my favorite burgers with you, but now I’ve got more. Don’t think for a minute that this next batch isn’t worthy of being celebrated. To be honest, this pregnant foodie has had a selfish agenda of meticulously tasting all the best burgers that Tuscaloosa has to offer… you can thank me later.
Did you know that Americans consume approximately 50 billion burgers a year? On top of that, the average American eats a hamburger three times a week! To be honest, I wouldn’t be surprised if the average T-town resident doesn’t beat this average, week to week.
Who doesn’t love a romantic dinner with your sweetie on Valentine’s Day? With food appealing to many of our senses, it’s no surprise that our meals can have an aphrodisiac effect.
If you ask my coworkers, they’ll tell you that there’s something romantic about going out to a special restaurant on the Designated Day of Love. If I’m being honest, though, the biggest appeal to me is not having to do the dishes after a delicious meal.
UPerk officially opened its doors in August 2017, but community manager Jamey Hamm says it was established in 2016.
“Though we opened just this August, we have 2016 on the wall, because that’s when Pastor James Goodlet had the UPerk idea,” said Hamm.
Ever since the Pho Town Facebook page debuted earlier this year, people have been chomping at the bit, eager to get their pho on. But what exactly is pho? Pho (pronounced like “fun” without the “n”) is a Vietnamese noodle soup consisting of broth, rice noodles, herbs, and meat … typically beef or chicken.
As a popular street food in Vietnam, owner Anhtu Bui felt that Tuscaloosa was ready for some authentic flavors in its food scene.
