Are you curious about what Boba places to try in the Dallas-Fort Worth Area? Or are you a local looking for new boba spot to try? Learn from local food influencer, Hazel the food blogger behind @herloveforfood


Hi, I’m Hazel from herloveforfood; a Bay Area native as well as a former Disney Cast Member who loves to eat and is new-ish to the DFW area.

I’ll admit, one thing I wasn’t expecting when I moved to DFW was the insane amount of Boba places they have here (and Pho, but that’s a different post for a different time)! I haven’t even tried all of the Boba places on my DFW Foodie Bucket List! But over the last few years here, I’ve tried a number of different Boba spots; from their indoor decor to their cute cups and various drink flavors, these are 3 that I deem Instagram worthy:

Boba Places to Try: 1102 Bubbles & Bites

Tucked away in a plaza in Arlington not too far from the mall sits this super cute Boba cafe. The first time I walked in I was captivated by the decor. How the tables looked like they were each their own balcony with flower beds, fairy lights and cozy seats. The other side of the cafe was where your normal tables were. Their in house presentation for their drinks are so pretty! I wish I could have taken the glasses with us! This was also the first place I ever tried Oolong Milk Tea from and what started my obsession!

They recently opened a second location in Fort Worth recently; if you’re nearby I would highly recommend this place! They have a ton of unique Italian Soda flavors, French Soda as well as Milk Tea and Coffee!

Sugar Tiger

It seems like Carrollton is a hot spot for trendy Asian spots and that includes food! Sugar Tiger is thrown into a massive Asian plaza of lots of interesting sounding food spots and cafe’s. But this Boba cafe is crazy. Everything was done in such a time efficient way, from the way they take your order to how prompt your drink comes out. And the drink itself? *chefs kiss (and I have NEVER used that phrase before) there’s just something IN THIS BOBA that is different from ALL OTHER Boba I’ve had. And I’m determined to keep trying it until I figure out just what it is!

Their 4 Milk Boba options come with different types of boba and toppings. They might sound way over the top but they blend in together so nicely. In addition they also have 8 different Tea options with various toppings and add ons as well.

The directions are also interesting, they tell you to shake your cup (upside down and right side up) a total of 15 times. B swore the more he shook it, the better it tasted. Not sure if I can agree with that but maybe he’s right. Regardless, this drink is just simply amazing.

Feng Cha Fort Worth

Stumbled on this place through Facebook and was captivated by their interesting Milk Foam Cakes! They just recently added cake slices as well as cake cups! Our last trip B decided to try something new so he got the Oreo Cheese Milk Tea and the Dirty Boba (which several people before and after us also ordered — and I now see why). I just got my usual Oolong Milk Tea. But next time, def going to get the Dirty Boba!

I’m not sure why I’m just now discovering how delicious Brown Sugar Boba is, but better late than never. They also have a pretty wide range of fruit drinks and teas. Make me wish I was more into tea!

The decor is so cute! I love the flowers spread across the wall (really makes for a cool background) as well as the huge stuffed bears in the front and the super cute Boba pillow (no really, where can I get one)!

And of course I had to get a Tiramisu Treasure Milk Cake.

Haven’t heard of the Rideshare Foodie? Well, you should get familiar. He is a foodie that is spreading love, positivity and bringing people closer together. Best of all, he is on a mission to conquer eating in all 50 states. He is trying the must-try food according to local Uber and Lyft riders in the cities he visits. Check out his website to learn more at www.ridesharefoodie.com. Plus, follow his journey on Instagram or Facebook.


Greetings everyone! My name is Kreskin J. Torres, I am a food blogger from Baltimore, Maryland and at 32 years young I have driven to 45 states! My next drive this summer to Alaska will complete all 50. I am a huge foodie and “Ravens” fan, of course and I have always been a lover of dance, culture, and film.

My Passion: Meeting New People, Seeing New Places

I was raised by a single mother along with my two sisters, I am the oldest. Growing up was difficult where, to be honest, traveling the country seemed like an impossible dream. Throughout my life I always enjoyed meeting new people and seeing new places, so on my 28th Birthday I decided to become a “Yes” Man! Instead of talking about it, I just started doing it.

Eating Jerky in Lincoln, Nebraska

The Rideshare Foodie is Born

Following that I was given the opportunity to vacation for a month of spring in London. I flew back home inspired almost instantly. Experiencing different culture and ways of living really gave me perspective on how extraordinary the world really is. I have always wanted to explore America, so I thought to myself “Why not take my own road trip and explore my Country?” I figured I could just drive my car and fund the trip by driving Uber and Lyft, so I packed up and decided to “live” out of my car for four years.

This allowed me the freedom to experience what I call true America and with technology at hand I can finance my adventures remote. I was used to tourists asking me where to eat when hopping in my car, so I said “Why not ask the locals I pick up where to go eat? I can do the opposite!

By combining the two I thought that it would be interesting and something different. This journey was not planned and to me that has been the exciting part. The fact that I can support local business in every state is an incredible feeling.

Finding My Purpose and Stepping Out of My Comfort Zone

The Queen of Creole at Dooky Chase Restaurant in New Orleans

I meet so many new friends along the way and enjoy every moment. Helping the less fortunate to driving through snowstorms to supply water in the community of Flint, Michigan. I have experienced tire blow outs in Mississippi to drove though the windy mountains of Colorado, Utah, and Oregon. Experiences that were at times a bit scary but was an invigorating experience.

Like myself, I know there are so many others, who enjoy stepping out of their comfort zone. I hope everyone enjoys what I have in-store. My only request, we respect each other’s differences and have fun trying something new.

Remember to love one another and remember to say please and thank you. Manners can take you a long way and just being courteous makes all the difference. My journey is about positivity and spreading that energy to anyone I meet. My journey has been about self-discovery and finding purpose and I have found both.

Sharing My Amazing Foodie Experience while Spreading Positivity

I have had some great experiences and some, not so good but in the end, I would not trade them for anything. America has so much to offer and so many hidden gems. You can visit the Grand Canyon the Black Hills of Mount Rushmore and many more National Parks of the country that few get to or will ever experience.

The Michael Jackson Family House in Gary, Indiana

It is insane that there is always something new to try or an odd but interesting combination dish such as chili and cinnamon rolls. Yes, that is a thing in the Midwest and is huge in states such as Kansas, Iowa, Nebraska, and South Dakota. This sweet and savory dish is as American as you can get.

Food as A Common Ground to Bring People Together

Twisted Fusion Dishes & Desserts in Des Moines, Iowa

Trust me. Everyone enjoys food and that just happens to be a common ground. We all may have different perspectives and opinions; food is just a way to fellowship as human beings. What started as my way to see the country has become an adventure of a lifetime. Exploring America while meeting the people of America has been extraordinary.

I have met people of all walks of life. We have shared meals while having conversation about life and true happiness. My joy shines through my bubbly personality and my live reactions. I really enjoy sharing my thoughts and reactions from my point of view when visiting each city. Many of my friendships have been built from leaving my comfort zone and simply learning to live.

The Journey to Alaska and Beyond!

I have learned so much from the personal connections that I have established throughout my journey. My biggest trip is to Anchorage, Alaska which will span out to two days of drive time. I will not be in any rush, so exploring the beauty that is Canada would be ideal. Myself and my passport will be ready.

This will be my 49th state and will be a huge achievement that I hope to share with anyone supporting me. After all, 50 states are complete I plan to have a show based on my travels and to start a Rideshare Foodie International! Foodie adventure.

If anything comes my way, I will be ready and know that God has blessed me with everything that I receive. I plan to do whatever I can to make an impact in this country while leaving my mark on the world. I believe that without doubt, I can do anything I put my mind and energy to.

The Future for the Rideshare Foodie… Anything is possible!

I hope to branch out to major events that will be headliners for decades and hopefully provide a platform for those wanting to follow in my footsteps. I believe, that by employing more dreamers there will be plenty of ways to change the world. My biggest goal is to live my dream and leave behind a legacy and who knows with all this eating maybe there is a restaurant or food truck in my future. Hey, it could happen!

Are you curious about what Connecticut’s Sugar Rush USA is about? Or are you looking for new Connecticut Ice Cream to try? Learn from local food influencer, Alison C. the food blogger behind @food_of_ct. 

More than an Ice Cream Shop, A unique Experience

There are plenty of ice cream shops in Connecticut, but not many that serve liquid nitrogen ice cream. On January 18, 2021, Sugar Rush USA opened their doors in Shelton, CT, and were welcomed by a community of local ice cream lovers and their families. Though there was a socially-distanced line in front of the building, no one seemed to mind waiting in the colder weather to support a new local business.

The Liquid Nitrogen Ice Cream Experience

If you have never experienced liquid nitrogen ice cream, you may be wondering how different it is from regular ice cream. At Sugar Rush and similar establishments, you will often notice the jugs of liquid ice cream in a refrigerator. When mixed with nitrogen, the liquid ice cream becomes frozen very quickly, and the process results in a much smoother, creamier texture than normal ice cream. At Sugar Rush, you can see through the plexiglass and watch as the team members make your ice cream right in front of you. 

Find the Perfect Ice Cream Pairing

Often paired with nitrogen ice cream is a bubble waffle cone, referred to as a special cone at Sugar Rush. This type of waffle cone is thick, with the bubbles being soft and chewy. The ice cream soaks into the waffle, and Sugar Rush serves the cone in a cup to catch any melting ice cream. One of Sugar Rush’s most unique offerings is their ability to infuse the bubble cone with cereal or toppings of your choice. When viewing the menu, any topping with an asterisk symbolizes its ability to be infused. It adds some extra flavor and texture to the cone, and helps you to reach that sugar rush!

A Personalized Ice Cream Experience

You can build your own ice cream cone, or pick from a list of their specialties. Their namesake specialty, the Sugar Rush, is vanilla ice cream topped with gummy bears, rainbow sprinkles, Lucky Charms cereal, and whipped cream. This cone is so colorful and definitely insta-worthy! Another popular speciality, the Rich & Famous, is chocolate ice cream topped with fudgy brownie bites, chocolate sprinkles, chocolate crunchies, and Nutella. For a chocoholic like myself, this cone is a dream come true!

In addition to serving nitrogen ice cream, Sugar Rush serves regular ice cream by the scoop and several other ice cream based treats. Customers are able to build their own crazy cookie ice cream sandwiches with a variety of cookie and ice cream flavors, which comes with one topping rolled in. On my most recent visit, I chose a chocolate chip cookie with vanilla ice cream and chocolate crunchies. Also on the menu are ice cream stuffed donuts, French crepes served with a scoop of ice cream, soft serve, and milkshakes. Non-ice cream beverages include Starbucks frappuccinos, Naked smoothies, Lipton teas, and more.

Fun and Energetic – Perfect for the Whole Family

The vibe inside of Sugar Rush is so fun and energetic, and is truly perfect for the whole family. When you walk in, you will hear your favorite party tunes coming over the speakers, and the color-changing lights and signs will be sure to catch the attention of the little ones. Even waiting in line is fun as you wait at your treat’s station to watch it be made right in front of you.

Sugar Rush USA: Family Owned and Operated

The Nasufi family, owners of Sugar Rush USA, have done a fantastic job of creating some happiness during these difficult times. It was so encouraging to see the outpouring of support on social media when Sugar Rush announced their grand opening. Their announcement post on Facebook had over 3,000 shares, and only several weeks later, their Facebook page has almost 4,000 followers. If you have always wanted to experience nitrogen ice cream, or are looking for a new sweet spot, be sure to make a visit to Sugar Rush USA at 901 Bridgeport Avenue, Suite 107 in Shelton, CT!

Sugar Rush is a partner of Cravve app and was also recently featured as a Must Try Dish in Connecticut. See Instagram Post below.

Are you curious about what Staten Island’s Project Brunch is about? Or are you looking for new Staten Island food to try? Learn from local food influencers, Foodie Rooney’s, the husband and wife bloggers behind @foodie_rooneys. 

Project Brunch is somewhere that we go frequently and one of our favorite brunch restaurants. For this entry, let’s stick to the sweeter side of brunch and cover some of their signature drinks and sweet treats.

Support Local Restaurants like Project Brunch

Before we dive in to this amazing place there’s something I want to discuss first. We are in a very difficult time in the world, due to COVID-19. Many states have not been able to open restaurants for indoor dining. Project Brunch is located in a borough of New York City so they fall in that category. So many restaurants are now having a hard time due to matters that are out of their control. If you want to help get them through these hard times head over to https://www.gofundme.com/f/help-save-project-brunch.

Local Must Try: Project Brunch Signature Shakes

If you decided on Project Brunch, no meal is complete without having one of their signature drinks. Different kind of candy themed shakes or frozen hot chocolates that look almost as good as they taste. My wife is the expert on these shakes so I went to her for a description and she did not fail me. “It’s heaven in a mason jar” and I couldn’t agree more.

You can get most of these drinks hot or cold, either way, you cannot go wrong.  If the drinks itself were not enough, the theme of the drink shows its form on top as a treat. Cosmic brownie shake? Enjoy a brownie with it. Carnival shake? Enjoy some cotton candy on top. The list can go on and on and they all hit it out of the park.

Weekly Specials or Standard Menu – It’s a Win-Win

The hard thing about project brunch is everything on the menu sounds amazing, but then they throw two specials at you that also sound just as amazing but these specials do not stay long, lasting only the week. I would say choose wisely but I can’t express enough; any choice you make will be a wise one.

Project Brunch Must Try: Reese’s Pancakes

The first special that I remember us getting were Reese’s pancakes. It was peanut butter and chocolate bliss. Each bite would take you on a ride of sweetness that you never want to get off. The pancakes are light and fluffy where it absorbs some of the peanut butter and chocolate to make each bite even more exquisite. If this special makes it back into the rotation I highly recommend it.

Project Brunch Must Try: Cinnabun Panckakes

To follow up with some more pancakes we have the cinnabun pancakes. The only way this can be described is to have you think of the best pancakes you ever had, got it? Good. Now think of your favorite cinnabun you have had. Put them together into one magical bite and that’s what you have here. No other words are needed to describe this.

Project Brunch Must Try: Waffle Ice Cream Sandwich

This image has an empty alt attribute; its file name is image-15.png

Finally, we come to their take on the classic ice cream sandwich. Most ice cream sandwiches are cookies with ice cream in the middle but not here. We have a waffle sandwich. Like the pancakes, the waffle is also ultra light and fluffy and just perfectly made. The waffle makes the perfect host in encasing the chocolate and vanilla ice cream that this sandwich has to offer. Sprinkles? Not good enough how about some M&M’s. This massive treat can satisfy even those with the largest of sweet tooths.

These are just some highlights of the sweet side of brunch. There are many more options available and we are yet to find something we do not love. If sweet is not the way you want to go for brunch, don’t worry. I mentioned this was to talk about the sweeter side of brunch so I will just leave you with a picture of the savory side. Like the sweets, there is no wrong choice.

Are you traveling and looking for a Must Try Detroit Area Restaurant? You won’t want miss out on Luigi’s Trattoria and Pizzeria.

Hi. I’m Jennifer from @jeyang.foodfunadventures. In Michigan, Governor Gretchen Whitmer issued an order to close all bars and restaurants dine-in from March 16th, 2020. With my outgoing personality and not getting to celebrate my birthday in late March during the stay-at-home order, I missed the experience of dining in. With small businesses in the restaurant industry struggling, I decided to take the opportunity to help out. So, over this past year, I have been working with various mom and pop restaurants in Metro Detroit, to promote their product, and increase their carry out sales, during these trying times. 

On December 11th, 2020, I visited a family-owned restaurant in Livonia, Michigan called Luigi’s Trattoria Pizzeria located at 31530 Plymouth Rd. Where did the restaurant’s name come from? Filippo Mainella, who is the owner, named it after his father, Luigi. Luigi moved to the United States from Italy when Filippo was a child. Filippo gets to work alongside with his son, Tommaso Mainella, who is the General Manager.

History of Luigi’s

Now, let us go back 20 years. When Luigi’s first opened in October 2000, it began simply as a carry-out pizzeria with a counter service. But as the years moved on, the Mainella family realized a shift in dining, and evolved as a full-service restaurant to serve their hungry customers. With the existing infrastructure and more customers ordering entrées other than pizza, the kitchen was not suited properly to handle the high volume, so they addressed the situation by closing the restaurant for two months at the beginning of January 2020 to remodel, something they had been discussing about since early 2018.

Usually right after the New Years is when the restaurant is less busy, so the family remodeled the kitchen, and spruced up the dining room and bar area. Filippo was ecstatic about the new updated kitchen. He brought in an additional stove and changed the setup in the kitchen, to better handle customer’s orders, and make it easier to continue serving its trademark foods. With the reopening on March 1, 2020 comes a new identity, which better reflects its mission and menu. The restaurant got rid of its old name: Luigi’s Pizza Café and replaced it with the name that it is today: Luigi’s Trattoria and Pizzeria.

While the menu remains the same as before, listed below are some of the dishes I got to try!

Let us start with the appetizers.

Must Try Detroit Area Restaurant: Luigi’s Trattoria and Pizzeria – Featured Food:

Arancini

Arancini is an Italian snack consisting of a ball of rice; typically, risotto, vegetables, mozzarella coated with panko breadcrumbs, and deep fried with a side of marinara sauce.

Chicken Marsala

One of their most popular Italian entrees is the Chicken Marsala. The chicken breast is coated and briefly sauteed. It is then removed from the pan, which is then used to make a Marsala reduction sauce with cream and mushrooms.

Build Your Own Pasta

Everyone has their own preferences, so Luigi’s offer an option to build your own pasta. For example, I built an angel hair with Norcina sauce topped with Italian Sausages.

Popeyes Pizza

You of course cannot forget about their pizza since it originally specialized as a carryout pizzeria. One of their popular pizzas is called Popeye. It is a white pizza topped with spinach, roasted red peppers, fontina, provolone, mozzarella, and herbs.

You do not want to miss out on the desserts from Luigi’s because they offer tiramisu and cannoli with chocolate chips!

Tiramisu

Tiramisu is a no-bake Italian dessert combining espresso-dipped ladyfingers, and a creamy sweet mascarpone cream, topped with cocoa powder.

Cannoli

Cannoli consists of a tube-shaped shell of deep-fried pastry dough that are filled with homemade cream sprinkled with chocolate chips.

Food Spread

Luigi’s Trattoria Pizzeria is hands down one of the best Italian restaurants I have been to and a must try Detroit area restaurant. Although I have not tried their entire menu, everything I have eaten was absolutely delicious, and I highly recommend it for anyone in the Metro Detroit area. 

The current full menu for the restaurant can be found at http://luigistrattoriapizzeria.com. If you want to place an order at Luigi’s Trattoria Pizzeria, you call in at 734-261-0600 or order online! They also offer delivery up to a 6-mile radius.

3. Aztec Xoco: Novare Res Bier Cafe, 4 Canal Plaza, Suite 1

When it comes to staying warm in January, it’s hard to go wrong with a little boozy hot chocolate in hand.

4. Hot Boozy Cider: Luke’s Lobster Portland Pier, 60 Portland Pier

Keep in mind, Luke’s Lobster is on the pier so it’s colder and windier. Bundle up! If you feel like you’re wearing enough layers (hat and gloves are a good idea since it’s Maine in the winter) then try the hot boozy cider.

It’s got cinnamon bitters, cloves, and it’s hot so there’s not much more you could want. The $3 fish chowder is a nice bonus for those that enjoy chowder and want to have it right by the ocean!

Make it a meal by ordering the lobster grilled cheese or a lobster roll. This is one of the advantages of living in Maine: you can order lobster year round because there’s no “season” for lobster here.

5. Hot Wassail: Maine Craft Distilling, 123 Washington Ave

For many people, wassail is something that sounds vaguely familiar, but they can’t quite put their finger on it! Wassail is actually a drink and you’ve probably heard of it in a few Christmas carols! 

There’s a lot more to the tradition but essentially, people would go around drinking from door to door as they were also caroling. Interesting that you can now get your hot wassail from Maine Craft Distilling, isn’t it?

Wassail sounds a little silly but at the end of the day, it’s like a hot mulled wine and it’s delicious! MCD’s allows you to choose what kind of alcohol to add.

The Fifty Stone Whiskey is a lovely pairing to keep you warm if you choose a heated hut or a fire pit! There’s plenty of food to choose from as well, like the fried chicken sandwich or some nachos, since sitting by the fire and drinking is sure to make you hungry.

#4 Malted Pancakes

Sunday in Brooklyn, 348 Wythe Ave, Brooklyn, NY 11249

We’ve eaten our share of great pancakes, and so it takes an exceptional flapjack to get us excited. However, the malted pancakes at a new brunch hot spot called Sunday in Brooklyn have got us excited. These sweet and indulgent short stacks are everything you could ever want in a pancake and the praline syrup with hazelnut butter whisked with maple syrup takes the experience to the next level. The pancakes are so light and fluffy. As a result, you will want a second round.

#3 Pepperoni Pizza

Lucali’s, 575 Henry St, Brooklyn, NY 11231

Made famous in Netflix ugly delicious, Mark Lacono’s celebrated pizza, is a wonder of the Brooklyn food scene. With three hour or more waits. Foodies and food bloggers flock to this scene – just to chop down on a slide of some of the best pizza they’ve ever had. What’s the excitement about? The hand-stretched dough pizza, is a thin crust, with a simple sauce with clear tomato flavor with an array of deliciously complex cheese. In addition, the mozzarella is incredibly fresh and topped with parmesan after baking. As a result, these wood-fired oven pies are true pizza artistry.  It’s worth the wait.

#2 Savory French Toast

Sisters Brooklyn, 900 Fulton St, Brooklyn, NY 11238

Did we say Savory French Toast? Yes, sweet and savory combinations do pair well. If you need proof there is no better option than the Savory Pancakes at Sisters Brooklyn. With French Toast topped with Pulled pork and a sunnyside up egg. Your tastebuds are going to thank you for taking them through this culinary journey.

#1 S’mores Soft Serve

Sunday in Brooklyn, 348 Wythe Ave, Brooklyn, NY 11249

Yes, we are obsessed with Sundays in Brooklyn but can you blame us. Look at this mountain of S’mores Soft Serve, which is a seasonal treat. If you have a sweet tooth like us, you’ll be obsessed with this show stopping dessert, especially in the New York summer heat. Although, you’d probably gobble this up quick, even without the summer heat.
