  1. It's National Tequila Day! Have you ever tried a tequila so refined you sip it like wine from a Riedel flute? This is not your college days tequila! _____________________________________________________ When I think of tequila, I no longer think of "One Tequila, Two Tequila, Three Tequila Floor" 😜 Instead, I'm reminded of one of the best pairing dinners I've ever experienced. It was the Casa Dragones Tequila Dinner at Four Seasons Orlando Resort at Walt Disney World Resort. We enjoyed sipping the smooth Tequila "Joven" with each of the 5 courses, expertly prepared by Mexican guest chef Lula Martin Del Campo. The small batch tequila was so easy to drink (with no hangover the next day!) It was an experience I'm still dreaming about over a year later. Don't miss the opportunity to attend any special dinner at @fsorlando - I guarantee it will be unforgettable! (Check out their website for upcoming special events such as the Louis Roederer Champagne dinner on August 3rd and the various events during Epcot Food & Wine Festival in the Fall) ____________________________________________________ . . . . . . . . . . @casadragones @lulachef #GOepicOrlando #GOepicDisney #MakeSomedayHappen #PairingDinner #NationalTequilaDay #TequilaDay #CasaDragones #FourSeasonsOrlando #FSCulinaryCulture #FSTaste #FiveDiamondOrlando #tequilashots #DeliciousDisney #TasteEpcot #forkyeah #traveleats #eatfamous #foodietravel #foodphotography #foodphoto #culinarytravel #luxurytravel #disneylover #luxlifestyle

  1. COQUINE - I'm in love! One of the best tasting menus and dinner experiences I've had the indulgent pleasure of enjoying. Ever! @coquinepdx is now on Go Epicurista's "Must Eat List" of Portland, Oregon. I could have never guessed walking by the tiny restaurant that this James Beard nominated eatery would become a favorite. Add it to your list and don't put it off to "someday". Go! #MakeSomedayHappen _________________________________________________ Chef Katy Millard crafts some serious whimsy, unique flavors, inventive presentations and the type of bright inspired cuisine you wished you could enjoy every day - for the. rest. of. your. life. Coquine, in the gorgeous Mount Tabor neighborhood of SE Portland, had us immediately thinking of real estate. We are ready to move here! Just so we can walk to Coquine every night. We enjoyed the 7 course tasting menu - which is more like 10 if you count the two "snacks" to start, like brioche shrimp toast (OMG!), and the "treat" at the end, like homemade marshmallows and their award winning salted caramel roasted almond cookie (Double OMG!) And the service from Annie (from Jacksonville FL!) and wine pairings by @Ksandek deserve just as much praise. Thank you for taking such great care of us! (And pacing our dinner perfectly!) The wine pairings were brilliant! ___________________________________________________ This was the beautiful dessert, course # 7 (or 9!) Lemon olive oil cake, Nasturtium glazed strawberries, nasturtium mousse and poppy seed short bread. ***No words. I'm still dreaming about it!*** Paired with Muscat Petillant, Achard Vincent, Clairette de Die, from France. A raisiny yet not overly sweet dessert wine that complemented the bright flavors of the dish. ____________________________________________________ . . . . . . . . . . . #GOepicPDX #PDX #PDXfoodie #PDXlife #Coquinepdx #PortlandNW #BestofPortland #dinneratcoquine #TravelPortland #pdxdining #pdxeats #Oregonwine #MustEat #PNW #Portlandia #MustVisit #BeautifulCuisines #FoodandWine #TravelOregon #saveur #nasturtium #forkyeah #traveleats #winepairings #foodwinetravel #foodietravel #foodphotography #culinaryvacation #strawberries

  1. It's #NationalJunkFoodDay 🍫 What's your favorite junk food? Mine has always been MnMs! Ever since I was a kid. They have been there for me in fun times and in heartbreak, gotten me through all-nighters in college, writing deadlines and long flights. I'm not sure if it's all the color, the candy shell or the fact it's pure sugar - ahem - chocolate. I prefer the plain ones but don't turn down any of the varieties either. And certainly if they are gracing the top of a cupcake or ice cream bowl, i'm Happy 😊 How about you? What junk food gets you through the good times and the not so great? Hope you indulge today! #JunkFoodDay #FoodHoliday

  1. HUBER'S SPANISH COFFEE - You haven't truly had a Spanish Coffee until you've visited Huber's Cafe in Portland, OR. The oldest restaurant and bar in Portland, opened in 1879 is on the Go Epicurista "Must Eat List!" Located inside the historic Oregon Pioneer Building, a step inside is going back in time. Third generation owner James Louie started preparing Spanish Coffees for regular guests 41 years ago. What sets them apart? The flair! It's a true art form to prepare a flaming drink like they do. All bartenders are true showmen who dazzle with the one handed match trick and 3 ft pours. The drink is so popular, they purchase more Kahlua and sell more Spanish Coffees than any other restaurant in the country! I had the honor to interview James Louie, who's still hands-on and running the restaurant at 71 years young, together with brother David. Truly fascinating to listen to his stories. I will be sharing them in upcoming articles for Agent Magazine and on the blog. Add this experience to your list and Go Make Someday Happen! _________________________________________________ Oh and in addition to the Spanish Coffee, don't miss their famous full Turkey Dinner - It's like Thanksgiving every day at Huber's! And the turkey sandwiches are legendary! When Huber's first opened they used to serve them free with every drink. Wow. Can you imagine? . . . . . #GOepicPDX #PDX #PDXfoodie #PDXlife #MakeSomedayHappen #HubersCafe #PortlandOR #TravelPortland #PDXRestaurant #PDXEats #PDXBar #PDXdrinks #SpanishCoffee #MustDrink #MustEat #PNW #Portlandia #ClassicCocktail #MustVisit #kahlua #OldPortland #coffeelover #BeautifulCuisines #FoodandWine #VisitOregon #historybuff #zipkick #tbin

  1. It's National Hot Dog Day! This was the most surprising dog I've ever had at @marketonsouth @dixie_dharma - why? Because it's vegan!

Don't skip the desserts from @valkyriedoughnuts . . . . . . #GOepicOrlando #MarketOnSouth #DixieDharma #HotDogDay #Vegan #Vegetarian #orlandofl #orlandofood #orlandofoodie #orlandorestaurants #orlandodoesntsuck #orlandoeats #Obassador #thisisorlando #orlandoblogger #Zipkick #TBIN #Comfortfood #feedfeed #foodblogger #forkyeah #traveleats #dailyfoodfeed #goodeats #instafood #foodiegram #eeeeeats #eatingfortheinsta
