I usually don’t venture to Newport News, but since a dear friend moved there I found myself in unfamiliar territory when I visited her a few months ago. Using my trust UrbanSpoon phone app, we found a sushi restaurant, Kappo Nara Seafood & Sushi, that had a 89% approval rating….
One of the best gyros I’ve ever had. Period. Even my certified Greek co-worker approves! =)
According to the signage, the gyro brand is Kronos and you can see it rotating on a spit once you walk in. Wonderful flavor and great texture with a side of fries for under $7!
It’s my family’s tradition to celebrate Christmas with a huge dinner on Christmas Eve and opening presents at midnight. This year my mom decided to go visit our relatives in the Philippines for the month of December.
If you like REAL authentic Chinese food, you have to go to Jade Villa (in Virginia Beach, close to the corner of S. Independence and Virginia Beach Blvd).
What I order
I love dumplings and I love the dim sum menu at Jade Villa. My favs are the pork shumai and the shrimp har gow.
Ginataang mais (pronounced GEE-nah-ta-ang MA-es) is a Filipino sweet corn dessert soup. I know this may not sound too appealing for people who haven’t tried it, but it’s one of my favorite desserts and it really brings back a lot of memories. It’s sweet enough for kids to enjoy, yet not too sweet that you couldn’t have multiple bowls in one day.
