Feasting Fort Collins Reviews – StrEats Mobile Bistro

One of the best characteristics of the Fort Collins community is everyone’s willingness to collaborate. I really didn’t understand how strong this characteristic was until I started coworking at Cohere. While writing reviews there, I connected with a group of people who are willing to help and support each other in so many ways – ways that have catapulted all of our individual success. And they do it because they want to. When people work together, good things happen. Because of collaborative spirit there, I’m madly in love with the community.

Feasting Fort Collins Reviews – Chicago’s Best

When we venture out of Fort Collins into an unfamiliar city, we typically do one of two things when making a decision on where to eat.

  1. Play Restaurant Roulette and pick a place at random (often The Husband's preferred decision-making option).
  2. Pull up the Yelp mobile app on my phone to find a place with a high rating that is relatively close.

When we go on major road trips or overnight weekend getaways (like Denver), I make sure to thoroughly research restaurants so that we are bound to have an enjoyable meal. If we are just going on a quick day trip, we utilize the two decision making tools.

Feasting Fort Collins Reviews – Tacos On The Street

Good food doesn’t need to be complicated. Simple ingredients put together well can create a fresh dish that speaks for itself. It’s one of the many reasons I love food carts. There, you have to keep it simple – there’s limited space for ingredients, and pretty much one cooking technique. Food carts narrow their scope to focus on one or two types of menu items and nail the execution, because it’s the dish they specialize in!

Feasting Fort Collins Reviews – Tios Burritos

Target vs Wal-Mart – the battle of the bargain brands. Some people are very loyal Target shoppers, others are die-hard Wal-Mart veterans. I’ve come to the conclusion that the preference toward either store comes down to location and branding, since for the most part (and according to recent writings) they offer pretty much the same discounted products – give or take a few cents.

Really, it’s about atmosphere and impression.

Feasting Fort Collins Reviews – The Bangkok Kitchen

 

They say you find love when you aren’t looking for it. Those serial daters who go out night after night, looking for the love of their life on Match.com or OK Cupid, getting set up on blind dates by their coworkers (or worse, their mothers) are trying too hard and wasting a lot of time. If they lightened up a little, lived their life as they usually do, love just might come to them.

Feasting Fort Collins Reviews – Luxury Diner

Whenever we go on a road trip, we usually head for the mountains for a family wilderness adventure or Denver for a couples date night. Rarely do we drive farther south than that, and never have we driven north or Fort Collins. I've never had the desire or need to venture up into Wyoming until this weekend - and no, it wasn't for Cheyenne Frontier Days.

I needed to grab some camping and hiking gear on the cheap, and we're fortunate to be within driving distance of the Sierra Trading Post Warehouse and Outlet. So, we woke up and hit the road, planning to grab breakfast along the way. Usually, Yelp isn't as helpful as I'd like it to be, but when it came to trying to find a great breakfast spot in an unknown city - we weren't led astray. The reviews for the Luxury Diner actually made us go out of our way for some classic diner grub.

Feasting Fort Collins Reviews – Maiberry

In a sea among many, you've got to do something that's going to make you stand out from the crowd.

Here in Fort Collins, we have an incredible amount of frozen yogurt options - Mahalo, Spooners, Golden Spoon, Coolberry, and now Maiberry. Each place has their own personality - some have better flavored frozen yogurt, others have better toppings, and some have the edge on better price per ounce - but they all serve pretty much the exact same thing.

Except Maiberry.

Feasting Fort Collins Reviews – Euclid Hall Bar and Kitchen

You know you shouldn’t, you know it’s wrong. But you do it anyway because the temptation is just too intense – a heart-stopping thrill of the moment, a tingling sensation pulsing through your limbs, a devilish smile from across the room. The small talk laced with lustful hints draws you further down the primrose path. You justify it as a one-time deal – indulge in the seductive invitation, the sinful lapse in judgement – just this once, and then you can move on to reality upon the first glimmer of morning.

While eating dinner at Euclid Hall, I felt like I was having a one night stand with the food.

Feasting Fort Collins Reviews – Charco Broiler

With the constant cycle of restaurants opening and closing, I often wonder what makes some of the Fort Collins classics stand the test of time. We have some restaurants that have been operating for well over 30 years, and some of them aren’t that wonderful when it comes to taste and quality. So, if the food isn’t particularly fantastic, then it must be the relationships they maintain with their customers, right?  Maybe it has something to do with nostalgia? I believe this is so for Charco Broiler.

Feasting Fort Collins Reviews – Sushi Mountain at the Vault

I asked for brave, adventurous souls to join me.

It wasn’t because we were going to one of the haunted businesses in Fort Collins, where I’ve heard some pretty hair-raising ghost stories, it was because we were going to eat “back door sushi.” I’d heard about it, read the sign flashing “Late Night Sushi” in the window, and listened to people’s less-than-positive opinions about eating sushi in one of the biggest dive bars in Old Town.

Feasting Fort Collins Reviews – The Little Bird Bakeshop

I’m a firm believer that the essential ingredients to building meaningful relationships are butter, flour and sugar. For some reason, these ingredients make it possible to bare your heart and soul, share a genuine smile and make everyday moments magical. Ever since The Little Bird Bakeshop opened, I’ve been hearing from friends and readers about how much they love it. Since my visits for this review, count me as one of the many who will rave about this little corner bakery in the heart of Old Town Square. My experiences have been filled with butter, flour, sugar, smiles, friendship and love.

Feasting Fort Collins Reviews – Colorado Cherry Company

I’ve lost count on how many times we’ve driven down that road. The kids are usually asleep in the back seat, and I’m gazing out the window, silently taking in the majestic beauty of the Rocky Mountains, hoping to spy an animal on the rocks. The Husband drives us along the winding, curvy road, glancing at the river every chance he can. It’s the avid fly fisherman in him that’s itching to throw on his waders. The urge seems to be as strong as any drug addiction.
