Foodie Moments: I Love Picnikins!

If you live in the San Antonio area, make the time to stop by Picnikins! Funny Name – Incredible Food!

Three Words: FRESH. DELICIOUS. SATISFYING.

Anytime I stop by Picnikins, I leave happy – this last time was no different. I opted for the Tortilla Soup & Small Caesar Salad (sans chicken).

I appreciate presentation and they never disappoint here – simple, but clearly they care about how the food makes its appearance at the table.

I would describe the look of Picnikins as clean and relaxing, with a stylish twist – and an impressive wine selection for a small patio type restaurant. Though, don’t ask me about the wine, I only know what I like in that department.

Foodie Moments: Piranha Killer Sushi

Payday Sushi Date! Every payday, my friend Ashley and I, hit up our new favorite place:  Piranha Killer Sushi!

The atmosphere is nice, decor clean and food pretty awesome. The restaurant is fairly new and clearly loved, and you should make a reservation for Friday/Saturday dinner; though they do take walk-ins during those times you might have a wait for an open spot.  Note: Now I can only testify to the awesomeness of the San Antonio location.

So I thought I’d share some photos from our bi-monthly sushi dates:
