After three seasons working on an archaeological dig, I know my Turkish food. These are my favourite Turkish dishes from grandma’s specialties to street eats: the best Turkish foods according to The Food Girl in Town.
The flavours of Asia are becoming my favourite profile, so this month I wanted to do something typically Japanese, but lesser known in North America. Izakayas represent a more casual dining experience with greasy tasty dishes that go great with beer.
Review: From southern-fried lobster tacos to big burgers, Fort Amherst Pub sits in Churchill Square in St. John’s with lots of beers on tap.
Five years ago I was lost. Adam and I had just moved to Halifax while he went to law school, and I had no job, no friends, and no direction. Deep down I had always wanted to write and I shyly started The Food Girl […]
For the past two years I’ve travelled carry-on exclusively. I used to agonize over the weight of my bag, never thinking about the souvenirs I would buy travelling, proceeding to sweat buckets at airport check-in. Enough was enough! I researched my buns off to learn the […]
Well, last month I didn’t cook one bite of food but boy did I make up for it! Since we moved home I hadn’t had the opportunity to cook with all my besties here in St. John’s, so for August’s Around the World in 12 […]

Sometimes I don’t feel at home at bed and breakfasts. Some spots feel like you’re at someone’s parent’s house while they’re away for the weekend. I’m always worried about breaking something or being too loud. Maybe I’m not sophisticated enough, or I’m not old enough […]
This post is sponsored by Summer Fresh. Who needs bread when you have halloumi and hummus? These are words I never thought would come out of my mouth, but here I am. I love bread and cheese, and it has always been a go-to for […]
All right, I confess. I didn’t cook at all in July. I was working on an archaeological dig, so Around the World in 12 Plates: Turkey has to take a different approach. Did you know I moonlight as an archaeologist? I spent my first season […]
