The Chicken Caprese. Yes, this wonderful dish created by Finezza Italian Bistro, in Nashville’s West End area, is an Italian dish made to perfection. Chicken breast topped with fresh mozzarella & tomatoes, drizzled with garlic oil, balsamic reduction & finished with basil chiffonade, served over angel hair with marinara. One bite and your taste buds will be singing in celebration to the sweet taste of the Chicken Caprese.
Chilly days are long forgotten with a nice bowl of Pho from Far East Nashville. A classic Vietnamese dish, Pho, offers a full flavor and keeps you warm. It’s a noodle soup with rich flavorful beef broth and rice noodles, topped with onions and scallions. They accompany the soup with a side dish of fresh bean sprouts, basil, lime and jalapenos. Perfect for a day like today. Go get some.
Finally! The beloved Biscuit Love food truck has opened up a brick and mortar place in The Gulch. Don’t worry they still offer the same breakfast & lunch favorites we have all come to love, but now in one convenient location. Something new to the menu is their Bonuts. A pool of blueberry compote lines the bottom, then fried biscuit dough topped with lemon mascarpone are placed on top. The perfect starter to share with a group and try what’s new to this already Nashville favorite.
Housed out of an old recording studio, in The Gulch, is Barista Parlor Golden Sound. While tunes might have been recorded in previous years, the only thing playing now is the sweet sounds of coffee roasting. This coffee shop features a spacious sitting area filled with long tables for in-depth conversations, studying, or just hanging out with friends. The other morning we ordered the Moto Biscuit which comprised of a house-made buttermilk biscuit, “Willow Farm’s Eggs”, and “Kenny’s Farmhouse Cheese”. Looks simple, but it was amazing. To wash down this delicious biscuit we purchased the Bourbon Vanilla Espresso. We didn’t know which we liked more. Each bite was taking in marvel, and quenched with a coffee full of sweet flavor that resulted in the perfect start to our day.
Nashville knows a thing or two about some pulled pork. One of the must tastes on the Music City’s barbecue menu is the Piggy Stardust from Electric Sliders Food Truck. Made of Pulled Pork, Fire-Roasted Poblano and Pimento Cheese, Fried Pickled Onions, Balsamic Bourbon Barbecue Sauce. Yes, these unique beautiful ingredients combine to equal a huge bite in a small sandwich. We love the added mix of cheeses plus savory taste from the pulled pork. It’s a food explosion of taste in your mouth. Find out where Electric Sliders Food truck is by follow the link below.
Not too far from Downtown Nashville, and worth the drive is Phat Bites Deli in Donelson. We sincerely doubt you will be able to find another sandwich shop with the style like Phat Bites. Graffiti art cover every inch of the wall with couches and lounging stations throughout this groovy restaurant. To match the unique atmosphere is a menu filled with culinary masterpieces perfect for lunch time. Items like Big Jerk, Hot Affair, Morphine Wrap, and Ninja Bomb comprise this unforgettable menu. Our favorite, the Ninja Bomb. Made with Chinese Chicken, Lettuce, Shredded Carrots, Granola, Sunflower Seeds, and a Raspberry Vinaigrette. A savory mix with the a sweet taste from the raspberry vinaigrette that has us visiting this places on a monthly basis. And as should you.
Sometimes fast food is a must. Our busy lives leave us hungry, and in need of food fast. It’s understandable. But just because we need it doesn’t mean we have to succumb to food that is bad for us. Right? GoGo Sushi believes this and they aim to serve food fast that is healthy and just the way you like it. Don’t even worry if you are not a fan of seafood. They offer grilled steak, chicken, and even bacon. Our favorite roll is the Korean Krunch Roll with seaweed wrap, bulgogi beef, cucumber, carrot, kimchi, teriyaki, wasabi mayo, tempura crunch and sesame seeds. Fresh ingredients, fast, and healthy. A dangerous combination if you ask us.
