Long Overdue - Food Meme

My friend Tanya tagged me for this post eons ago and I've been mindblowingly busy so I haven't done it. But now that Sarah Ashlee's tagged me too, I guess I'd better get on it.

The rules:

1. Add a direct link to your post below the name of the person who tagged you. Include the city/state and country that you are in.

velverse (Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia)

Selba (Jakarta, Indonesia)

I Am DisHeartened by My Jetta (Nashville, TN, USA)
Tanya Espanya(Toronto, ON, CA)

2. List out your top five favorite places to eat at your location.

I have sadly not been to many of these places lately. Need to get out more.

Carmine's on Penn - Family style Italian, fun neighborhood, a Denver institution.

Lime - Trendy, inexpensive Mexican in Lower Downtown that outshines most of the sad excuses for Mexican food here. Love the homemade tequila shot they give you alongside their sinful flour tortilla chips and salsa.

Jerusalem - Some of the best falafel I've had anywhere. Eternally busy dive near DU.

Jax- Cozy fish house with locations in LoDo and Boulder. Freshest seafood in town.

Flagstaff House - Go here when someone else is paying or it's a super special occasion. Fine dining with knockout views from Flagstaff Mountain in Boulder.

I also have to give honorable mentions to Sushi Den, The Med, Dozens (I love breakfast!), and Jack N Grill for when I miss New Mexican food.

And because I'm lame, I'm not tagging anyone. But feel free to consider yourself tagged if you've read this and you want to extend the chain.

Aw, honey, you didn't have to do this, I would never have hunted you down and pelted you with falafels...or would I?

I must now go make a banana strawberry smoothie.

Nicole Tan said...

Lime sounds good to me..homemade tequila??? with tortilla chips and salsa??! now that is what I call ENJOY!

Tanya - I really have been meaning to get around to it, I promise. And if you pelt me with falafels, would you please aim for my mouth?

Nicole, any time, thanks for the fun idea!

Velverse - Falafel is ground chickpeas fried in olive oil, usually in the shape of a 5 cm or so ball. Usually I eat them in pitas with veggies and yogurt sauce. Delish!

James - it is the best, isn't it?
