    Cook Your Own Indian Food

    If you like eating Indian food and don't know how to prepare it, I highly recommend Ayesha D'Mello's cooking class. Ayesha is really good at teaching this, the meal at the end of the class is delectable, and you will actually be able to recreate the dishes at home with relative ease. We mention this ... More >>

    Revisiting Marumi Sushi

    A couple months back, we reviewed Marumi Sushi, a small but very authentic Japanese restaurant hiding in the western wilds of Plantation. I loved it then: nowhere else in Broward can you get this kind of unfiltered, unapologetic view of the food that Japanese folks actually dig into, and nowhere in ... More >>
