Considering Kristien’s obsession with all things HGTV, it’s a surprise it took us so long to get to the Elephant’s Trunk Country Flea Market. This massive market every Sunday in New Milford features antiques, rare finds, farm stands, and anything you’d need to furnish a home. Sure, you have to rummage through some trash to get to the treasures, but that’s part of the fun. In fact, there are so many food trucks at this flea market every Sunday, they sort of work the same way. They have lots of smaller carts and stands serving up hot dogs, lemonade, Italian ices, and breakfast sandwiches that could be hidden treasures, and they have some of the food trucks we’re all heard of that might not be as much of a treasure as you’d hoped. So we’re going to break down our trash and treasure food truck finds for you so you don’t have to rummage. We got your back! Continue reading

For the longest time, people wondered if Bareburger Stamford would actually happen as that sad and lonely spot at 21 Harbor Point remained barren while Fortina and other spots nearby opened up and flourished. Well, glimmers of hope arrived as winter neared, and since opening up a few weeks back it has been jam-packed.
When we went to try it out this past Saturday (at around 6:45 pm) we were more than ready to eat and drink our sorrows away after witnessing our beloved Rangers lose in overtime at MSG. The space is pretty small with some seats at the bar, a few high-tops, and a handful of tables, but luckily we only had a 1/2 hour wait for a party of 6, which isn’t too bad. Continue reading
Where do you even start with this burger from Tomato Tomato Pizzeria & Pour House? Literally, we don’t know where to start. It’s freaking huge. Do you just try to shove the whole thing in, cut it up, take it apart, eat it layer by layer? We just don’t know, but we’ve got some info on this stunning dish on the menu: Continue reading
Okay, so when we are saying that Bareburger Stamford is actually ready to open, we mean it. Yes, we did write about the expansion of Bareburger into Ridgefield and Stamford back in September of 2013, but things are finally falling into place. Now, starting on December 21, we’ll have two Bareburgers in our fine state. Continue reading
We took a trip Portland, Maine a couple of weeks ago and devoured so much food (surprising, right?) One of our favorite spots that we checked out was The Holy Donut, which uses potato and sweet potato in their donuts. Holy crap, people: amazing. And, just a few doors down is b.good, a restaurant that we learned about a month ago when we were walking through Greenwich and saw that it was opening up on the avenue. Continue reading
