Fall is on the horizon and I couldn’t be more excited about my favorite season! Maybe it’s because of the cooler weather (it’s definitely the cooler weather) or the colors or the excuse to eat all the good food! Either way, we’ve been running around like crazy prepping for more travel and I managed to squeeze in a delicious recipe that is inspired by our upcoming trip to Thailand! Yes, Thailand. I can’t wait for the land of rice and spice. Oh and those noodles. And the mango sticky rice! We’ve booked a cooking class and market tour, a street food tour by tuk tuk and reservations at Gaggan! Yes, that Gaggan, the one of Chef’s Table on Netflix. Needless to say, I’ve been stoked for a while and already craving allll the flavors!
It’s the first day of fall y’all! Officially my favorite time of year! Ok, maybe I’ve already told you that like five times but whatever. Fall also means that we can safely sit on patios and not worry too much that we might pass out from heat stroke, thus making it the perfect time to get out to your favorite restaurants. This list is a list of my current favorites. Some places are brand new and some places have been around for a while. Either way, these are the places that I find myself not only recommending to friends and out of towners but the places that BMW and I find ourselves heading out to again and again! We eat out for every meal during our travels so when we are in town we like to cook a lot but these are the spots that we will put on pants for and eat our hearts out at!
This recipe is one of my favorite travel-inspired recipes I’ve made! Last summer BMW and I took a day trip to Tangier, Morocco from Spain. It was the first time for both of us to visit the African continent even if only the northern tip and just for a few hours! We decided to book a day tour with a company we found on Trip Advisor. Sometimes I am weary of these things and usually like to explore on my own but this one had great reviews and promised to take us to all the main attractions. Apparently, visiting Tangier for just one day is a thing. Fast forward past our sight seeing and spice shopping to our amazing lunch. Like one of my favorites. Have you ever had those meals that just surprised you at how delicious they were? The ones that you have really found memories of? Well, this is exactly how I felt about the first time I had chicken tagine in Morocco!
