Zen Palate Ruined My Palate

For years I've been hearing how amazing Zen Palate is for vegetarians. Seeing that my best friend is vegetarian, I even considered taking him for his birthday over the last many years.

Bar Americain: Expensive but Yummy

It was quite an interesting January Tuesday when Dad and I ventured off from the capital of Prague to visit the Bohemian town of Kutna Hora. I knew it… Continue reading Best Pizza… EVER in Kutna Hora!

A new Thai place to try in New Jersey? YES PLEASE! So far I've tried 5 Thai restaurants in NJ and have my favorite but am hoping to find one that will top it (no luck yet).

To watch my daily recommendations on Snapchat, be sure to follow me at “SaadiaExplores”.
