Sometime last year, The Pensacola News Journal gave a great review of this little restaurant on Davis Highway called Bagels Del Sol, and I was interested in trying it out one of the rare times I make a trip to Pensacola now that I am living in Milton. That opportunity came on Tuesday when I had to go to Pensacola for several errands before picking Mom up a the airport at 5:45 p.m. After making a quick run to the bank, I drove across the street over to Bagels del Sol for lunch before heading to my sister's house for a quick Mocha and Dakota fix and getting my hair cut.Bagels Del Sol is located next to What A Burger on Davis Highway in Pensacola and othe...Read More

In Memory of Eddy

Story/Tip

Let me tell you a little story. When I started working for the Home Depot in Pace, Florida, I became friends with Eddy, one of the cashiers and one of the most sweetest guys you ever met. Eddy was a hairdresser by trade and would come over to his co-workers' homes and cut their hair and enjoy everyone's company. Eddy used to cut Mom's hair, and we all became close friends.Last August, Eddy wasn't feeling well and went to see his doctor after having a seizure. After about a week in the hospital, the doctors told Eddy he had non-Hodgkin's Lymphoma, but it was 70-90% treatable. I was at the hospital after his diagnosis and was thinking positive for my dear friend and his mother Mercedes....Read More

I have eaten at Wasabi House a couple of times since moving to Florida two years ago, and the first time, I the Tempura platter I got didn't rock my world, but their sushi platter that I got the second time was great. Cut to a rainy Sunday night in January, and I had plans to meet up with my late great friend Eddy's sweet mother Mercedes and her friend Kathy, who were in town to bring part of Eddy's ashes to his former partner and meet up with several new friends Mercedes met at Home Depot during Eddy's illness last Summer and Fall.Mercedes didn't want to drag me away from AFC Playoffs knowing what a big football fan I am, but I love this little Spanish woman, and I really wanted to se...Read More

It was Saturday, and Mom was away in Georgia visiting her sister, and I was bach-ing for the night. I didn't feel like cooking since I was working that day, and I had been craving Chinese food for the longest time. I can never get Mom to get Chinese since she won't eat anything but the Rickshaw Inn in Riverside, Rhode Island, but that's a little inconvenient for us for the time being, if you get my drift.I had seen Jason, one of my co-workers eating take-out from this restaurant near work called China Fun near the Office Depot and Dollar Tree Stores in Pace, and he said it was good and the prices were reasonable. So that was going to be my dinner for Saturday night....Read More

Restaurant | "Dude! Where's My Eggroll?!"

My friend, co-worker, and birthday buddy Lauri keeps coming into work with leftovers from Tu-Do, a Vietnamese restaurant on North Davis Highway in Pensacola. The smells of the food were driving me crazy, and Lauri said I had to try the place for myself. Lauri and I share the same birthday, April 30, and we wanted to go out for lunch but never could get a day off from work together (working retail makes it hard for one to have a social life with friends outside of work!). I tried to get Mom or my sister Erika to go to Tu-Do, but Mom has this thing about her Asian food only coming from Rickshaw Inn in our hometown of Riverside, Rhode Island. Yeah, Mom, I will drive 1,500 miles just to satisfy your C...Read More
