Food touring with baby Pete

29 Nov

We’ve taken a long break from the blog this year, mostly due to the laziness that I acquired while being pregnant. But now that we are over the newborn hump we wanted to start the blog back up by introducing the newest member of our family, Pete.

In true foodie fashion, we have been lugging our infant son along on all of our food travels and exposing him to the sights and smells (not yet tastes) of various cuisines. Let’s see where Pete has been in his first 3 months.

Pete goes to…

…Hofbrauhaus Pittsburgh! He slept through his very first restaurant outting and missed out on bacon beer cheese fries, pork porterhouse and Bauern Schnitzel. The german food at the Hofbrauhaus is extremely underrated, we were pleasantly surprised by how great our meals were.

…The Sharp Edge! And he is still sleeping while mom and dad dine on the mussels with frites and a bratwurst burger.

…Primanti Brothers! We are raising a Pittsburgher after all. What will he choose as his first sandwich, the capicola or pastrami? Even I have a hard time deciding. IMG_5234.JPG

…Washington DC! Well, this picture was taken at the Marriott at Tyson’s Corner because, after a long drive, Pete just wanted to lounge in pjs so we ordered a bunch of takeout from various restaurants and hung out at the hotel.

…City Tap House! After walking around the Smithsonian American Art Museum, we stopped here for some burgers and beers.

…Hai Doung at Eden Center! Our favorite pho place. We would eat here every day if we could.

…Baltimore! Enjoying the inner harbor and some crab cakes with fries. We later found out that he was actually working on a nice big surprise in his diaper.

…Lidia’s Pittsburgh! Having Sunday brunch with the family for my birthday. I bet Pete can’t wait to try the grilled octopus.

…Red Robin! We were lured here for their “Tavern Double Tuesdays”, a free tavern double burger and bottomless steak fries with a purchase of any entree and beverages. We also couldn’t pass up the onion ring tower. Pete was eyeing it up too.

…Church Brew Works! We even ordered him a pierogie pizza, too bad he can’t eat yet and we had to finish it for him.

…Union Grill! We have been trying to eat here for forever but the wait has always been too long. If you’re looking to try this place, it has good food and beer but the best time to go seems to be on a weekday at 3pm.

…Orient Express! Our favorite Chinese restaurant in the city. We just love their salt and pepper pork chops. It’s also conveniently located around the block from Union Grill.

…Peace Love and Little Donuts! His first trip to The Strip for a little mini food tour. Maple bacon seems to always be their featured donut but it also happens to be my favorite.IMG_6013.JPG

…Strip District Meats! Where I had to tell Alex that buying an entire pig’s head and trying to cook it in our home oven was a bad idea. I don’t think he has forgiven me yet.

…Jimmy and Nino’s! One dollar pizza bread is the best deal in the strip, plus their pepperoni bread is way better than Mancini’s.

Happy Eating!
