Mimis Tres Leches Cakes Are Devilishly Tempting, Doc Says

I did something terrible last night. Once my wife finds out, I don’t know what happens to my marriage. I’m sorry Mimi’s Tres Leches Cakes, people need to know. There you were though. Sitting behind that glass door. You were looking like more than a snack, maybe not the whole cake just a piece. My God, it’s been so long since I’ve had a piece though. I know I’m a sick man, and you’re nothing but trouble for me. That look you gave me though, those dinner table eyes I had to have you. Those sitting in the parking lot, in a dark area with some Careless Whisper... Read More

REVIEW: You'll Want To Start A Torrid Affair With FoodAffair, Doc Kaalberg Says

It’s a quite cloudy morning. My kids are choosing pillows and snoring over an early breakfast with their dad. Giving me the chance to try something new. For months I’ve heard of the genius minds behind the FoodAffair . But I’ve quietly sat behind my desk and computer screen and contemplated my first trist with the much talked about Eggs Benedict. If this were a Sunday I may stay for mimosas, or maybe some waffles. However today my mind and heart are set. Walking into the restuarant it feels very open and warm. A faux fireplace adorns the walls and a wide open view of the... Read More

REVIEW: Cooks And Cuffs Will Captivate You, Says Doc Kaalberg

In 1888 Vincent Van Gogh painted quite possibly my favorite work of art. Cafe De Terrace. It was part one in a series of three. Fast forward to 2021, and Chef Keys from Cooks and Cuffs has cooked for me her Cafe De Keys. This New York born and raised Chef found her way here, to our bustling little metropolitan area, looking to start a new life with her husband. What’s she brought with her is a style of cooking all her own. To call what Chef Keys does in the kitchen is cook, is an insult. If Pavarotti hummed a diddy next to you, would you call it humming or listening to a musical master?... Read More

REVIEW: Quad City Pizza Company Is Just Damn Good Pizza, Doc Says

REVIEW: Quad City Pizza Company Is Just Damn Good Pizza, Doc Says

No fancy plates here just damn good pizza. It’s so freaking good. Why doesn’t it look like your average slice? Because it’s cauliflower crust. And I can assure you it’s packed full of flavor. I don’t understand it either. But that’s why it’s a company secret. The Quad City Pizza Company secret. Maybe it isn’t a secret, I don’t ask a lot of questions. What I do ask is for my kids to leave this alone and eat their regular human pizza. This is first time in a week I haven’t cried over my “healthy diabetic friendly” meal.... Read More

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... Read More
