West Chester Restaurant Festival

West Chester, PA (USA) hosts a fantastic restaurant festival. And who doesn’t love a great meal? Wandered the streets for several hours, meeting friends from my regular joints like The Classic Diner.

They had Belgian Waffles there as you can see in the next photo:

There were other stands, too, with everything from homemade soft drinks to pasta to baked goods to smoked meats.

Speaking of which, I needed a brisket fix and connected with this sandwich, which had me enjoying in a serious way:

This was a great festival with crafts, live music, and plenty of friendly people. I only wish I could eat more. See you next year. Enjoy ever meal in between.

Gallo Rojo, Aruba, iPhone video

Stopped at Gallo Rojo in San Nicolaas, Aruba, DWI recently. This is a corner joint that served breakfast and baked goods, not to mention the local papers and cold drinks. Did a little iPhone video just for fun. Here it is:

Tasty ham, egg, and cheese sandwich there. Just what you might need on the way to or from Baby Beach or to start the day after a long night. Enjoy every meal. Bon dia.

Koi on the Go, food truck

Koi On The Go is more compact than many food trucks I’ve seen lately. In fact, it’s a small trailer made of what looks like aluminum diamond plate. Here it is, parked at the Penns Woods Winery:

Not much room to work inside there, but the food was delicious. Let’s take a look at the menu.

We tried the Asian Sandwich and the Crab Cake Sandwich. Wow! Both of them delicious. Take a look:

Talk about tasty. That Asian Sandwich had the rich flavor of the pulled pork amped up with the bbq sauce. Yummy. I should have had another one! Anyway, it was all good. And the price was very fair given the high quality. Enjoy every meal!

 

Café Emma, Barcelona, Spain

Café Emma is one of those places I like to find while traveling, a pleasant stop for a meal or a snack, and some local gossip. Since it was located near my hotel, I popped in here for breakfast on my way walking about Barcelona.

They serve typical Spanish style dishes, and over the course of several days, I tried various ones.

Of course, an omelette is among my favorite breakfast foods, and this one contained onions, mushrooms, and potatoes:

Notice the “pan con tomate,” there, which means bread with tomato that you see at the top of the plate. It is a nice accompaniment. I also sampled the small bocadillo con salchichón that you see in the next photo:

The atmosphere at Café Emma is decidedly relaxed, the service friendly, and the menu what you would expect. Linger and enjoy.
