Taste Of Ethiopia Is The Quad-Cities’ Jewel Of The Nile, Doc Says

Taste Of Ethiopia Is The Quad-Cities’ Jewel Of The Nile, Doc Says

Next to the Mighty Mississippi River sits a hidden gem. Our own little Jewel of the Nile if you will. Taste of Ethiopia will bring you a new way of experiencing the Quad Cities, in a more flavorful way. Today’s review is somewhat sponsored and two parts. I sat down with Consumed Foodie , too experience this restaurant. While it maybe a new experience to us, I have a feeling we’ve been missing out. Families and couples flow through during our lunch break and order large dinner plates and laugh and carry on as if they were right at home. The patio which offers an amazing view of the river... Read More

You Need A Hot Potato On A Cold Day

Can you believe this crap? Snow, record cold, and it’s barely October? Man, I need a vacation, already. Unfortunately, I also need money for that vacation, and so that trip to warmer climes will have to wait. However, there is a way we can get some warmth on these frigid days. (No, I’m not coming over to spoon you.) (Well, ok, I’ll consider it. Message me.) Aside from that though, you can get a hot potato! No, not the kind of Idaho spud type, but the type that will warm you in a different way. A more alcohol-based way. You see, folks, Bent River has this little drink they call the Hot Potato.... Read More

Osaka Is A Godzilla Of Sushi In the Quad-Cities and Muscatine

Looking for a catch of the week that doesn’t involve noodling the flooded Mississippi River? If you’re  jonesing for Japanese you won’t have to fish far for satisfying sushi and sashimi any longer. Osaka restaurants in Moline, Davenport and Muscatine offer fresh dishes from the land of the rising sun roll, and they’re a Godzilla-sized hit. While other local outlets have offered sushi as part of their broader menus, Osaka is unique in its sole dedication to Japanese cuisine, as well as its environment and presentation. Walk inside and you’re immersed in an expansive, warm crimson replete... Read More

You’ll Be Sweet On Radicle’s Strawberries And Cream Beer

You’ll Be Sweet On Radicle’s Strawberries And Cream Beer

You ever wonder what happened to Strawberry Shortcake? You know, Strawberry Shortcake, the cartoon ginger who has had her artificially-scented life documented by various cartoons/animated reality TV shows over the past couple of decades before they got sent to the reeking dumpster of cancellation? Her friends were Lemon Meringue, Blueberry Muffin, Orange Blossom and Raspberry Torte, and they all had their own sickly sweet and sour personalities, but Strawberry Shortcake was the leader. Strawberry Shortcake debuted in 1980 as a child in the cartoons, so she’d be in her forties now. And like many... Read More
