This past weekend I took a trip with my wonderful friend Becca to New York City to attend the first annual Cherry Bombe Jubilee and of course, do some serious eating. While the awful weather wasn’t the most convenient to walk around in, it didn’t stop us from enjoying some great meals and of course, The Jubilee! This room was packed with major players across the food industry; some of the most respected chefs, writers, publishers, PR professionals and everyone in between were in attendance. There were panels addressing everything from the relationship between the media and chefs, being a mother and a working food professional and last but most definitely not least, a chat with Ruth Reichl. The conference was inspiring and as predicted, absolutely delicious. Cheers to the First Annual Cherry Bombe Jubilee!
On these particularly cold and gray days we’ve been having lately, I think back to less than a month ago when I was sunburnt and seaside in Aruba. After making annual trips to the island thanks to a trusty timeshare, I’m always excited to find something new whenever I return. After getting multiple tips about this place, we finally stopped in for lunch on our last day. This pay-by-weight fish shack has a basic menu; catch of the day, shrimp, plantains and french fries but between the simple and delicious food, dockside dining and dollar beers, it’s clear there’s nothing basic about Zeerover. There’s no stuffy crowd here; everyone is sandwiched on picnic tables between groups locals and more adventurous tourists. This is hands down one of the most authentic, affordable and freshest meals in Aruba.

One of my only food truck woe’s is how inaccessible parking is around most of the spots where the trucks operate. After seeing Roxy’s pork butt poutine special posted, I found myself circling around Dewey Square hopelessly, for once wishing I had just taken the train. I couldn’t be happier that I finally found a parking spot because that poutine was absolutely worth all the driving frustration.
