A Whole Lot of Food

One of the cool things about when a new grocery store opens up it brings so many possibilities to a community.
The new Whole Foods in Germantown brings those possibilities to life. 
I have never seen how a grocery store comes from the ground up and seeing some shelves stocked and the shelf right next to it empty is really neat.
I got to meet the team who helps with the opening and they gave me a wonderful tour of the new Whole Foods.
The center piece when you walk in is this fabulous dry ageing show case that easily gives you a 360 view of the dry aging process.
The Whole Foods has like every grocery store, a meat and seafood section, a dairy section, a produce section.
They also have a crepe making section, where they do a verity of sweet and savory crepes.
They also have (my personal favorite of the whole tour)
A Ramen Bar!!!
Now you may know that I love ramen and that there are only 3 or 4 places to get ramen in Memphis and so finding a place that servers it is a big treat!
They also sever some really rock'n and cool sushi burritos,

Now you may be thinking a sushi burrito? Whats a sushi burrito? I definitely was very intrigued. The burritos are kinda hard to explain, but its like a hand roll that you would find in Japan.
The sushi burritos are filled with either fish or chicken or  tofu wrapped in rice and then wrapped in seaweed, they come out to be, well, the size of a burrito.
The sushi burritos were very tasty.
They had several flavors of ramen, including Kimchi, Tonkatsu, spicy Tonkatsu, and many more.
The ramen was very tasty the egg on the ramen can be hard to get the perfect texture with the jelly yoke, the broth was flavorful and delicious super tasty.

The next section is the charcuterie the meats and cheeses were very good they had some smoked goat cheese and other wonderful cheeses and also a very interesting vegan charcuterie.
The Whole Foods also has a custom made espresso machine

So go to the Whole Foods and bring your appetite and then think about something creative for dinner.

A Small Bite of Bleu!

New Bleu 

A  while back I did a blog post on Bleu, if you know Bleu they like to change their menu a lot and since then they now have a new chef and menu.
I got a call go down to Bleu and participate in a really cool blogger tasting menu, and so I went. It was really neat being with a bunch of food bloggers, we all knew what we were eating and it was kinda like having lunch with your friends at camp. Everybody was taking photos and more photos! That is so Food Blogger! 

Chef went to Johnson and Whales when she was 14 and has a Jamaican background and flavors and she loves crab legs.

I have talked to bunches of chefs and almost ALL of them love crab legs over any other kind of seafood and I wondered why that is...
Well, its because crab is the best, that crab is delicious, and well, its crab. Man, I wish I had some crab right now.
Now I can't tell you all the little tasty things I ate there was just so many of them! Stand outs the short ribs, the enpinada, the salad! YUM.....
So,if you have not had lunch yet and want something new
than head on down to Bleu.

Belly Acres

I was walking around Overton Square one Sunday and saw another new restaurant called Belly Acres and its a farm to table specializing in burgers. Now the name Belly Acres kinda makes me think am gonna get a belly ache, but I decided to take a chance, fortunately I did not get a belly ache afterwords, phew.

The interior is very nice it really went with the theme of the restaurant, there is a plane flying through the wall, they even have a tractor I don't know if it still runs?

I ordered the bison burger with the normal toppings nothing to extreme but I did get some wasabi mayo on the side and for my side I got homemade chips. Making home made chips really good is really hard, and these just were not to good I had side envoy.
Mama's ordered a side of fries and they were the best side even Dad had side envoy.

The burger was pretty good the bison was good, but the bun was a little soggy. The rest of the toppings were really good though.

Dad ordered a grass feed beef burger, dad liked it 

Mama ordered the same burger as dad but ordered the fries, and we were all battling over the fries.
So when you go to Belly Acres be sure to order the fries.

Love the cabbage, Leaf
