A couple of weeks ago I got the opportunity to go to Cincinnati, Ohio with my boyfriend for a few days.
When we first arrived we went to Asiana Korean Restaurant. We shared seafood pajun(pancake). I got dukbokki, Surprise Surprise, but they called it rabukki cause it had ramen noodles in it. and he got jajangmyeon. Like at most Korean restaurants you get complementary banchan. At the end of meal instead of getting usual candy with your bill you get yakult. Reminds me of Fruity Pebbles in liquid yogurt form.
That night we went The Listening Loon to have some drinks. They had live music playing that night. Besides serving craft beer by the bottle or draft. They also have a "mini store"inside. About 2 shelves that has beer and I'm pretty sure wine too for purchase. Also learned I know nothing about the craft beer scene in this area. I did end up grabbing Nowhere In Particular Batch #001 a double rice IPA in a 22oz bottle. On the side of the bottle it says, "The beer you're holding is a beer that will never be made again. It is the only one of its kind and represents an ever-changing lineage meant to abolish monotony and cleat the way for audacity." Deep yo, basically grab it and drink it if you are lucky to find it.
The next day we went to Sidewinder Coffee for some wake me up. They have a small patio in the back that has a residence rabbit living there. Was just relaxing the sun. Not giving a care about us. After coffee I went over to Casablanca Vintage which was right across the street from where we were staying. Vintage paradise. I spent almost 2 hours going though all the stuff. That night we went to Skyline Chili. One thing Cincinnati is know for. Get the Cheese Coney, which is chili hot dog with a mound of shredded cheese on top and a 3 Way, which is spaghetti noodles with there chili and a mound of shredded cheddar cheese on top again. Enough and not too much for one person to eat.
The next morning we went to Blue Jay for breakfast. Usually you get bacon, sausage or ham for your protein. But around here on most menus you'll see goetta also as a option. Intereating texture with the oats in it. The biscuits and gravy looked funny with the gravy looking like it had been spread on by an off set spatula. Hey it's a dive! That afternoon I stopped into Graeter's for ice cream. There mostly known for there chip ice creams. Got the black raspberry chip. I understood why when I took my first bite. The chips are urge, Their more like chunks. Some an inch long.
On the morning we left we checked out Happy Chicks Bakery. A vegan bakery. Got a Carrot cake cupcake, a rose and lemon cupcake which was also GF and a Chocolate cupcake. Never had vegan baked goods before. Wish I could of gotten there crossiant to try out. Totally spaced, next time I guess.
