Frog Hollow Tavern Five Maudies – Highly Recommended I just got back from 18-months in Afghanistan and Iraq and, when I come home from places like that where the only food is normally lousy mess hall swill, one of the first orders of business is good food. So, for my birthday, Lynn, daughter Caitie and […]

If you get the idea that Lynn and I are obsessed with Turkish breakfasts, you would be right. See, Breakfast at Halikarnas Restaurant, Egirdir, Turkey, and this won’t be the last post about breakfast. The Urkmez Hotel is in the heart of Selcuk, mostly known as the gateway to the ancient city of Ephesus, the […]

We spent a few days in Selcuk, Turkey, in July. This is the busiest time of the year and Selcuk is a center for seeing some fantastic sights, such as the ancient city of Ephesus. I don’t recommend coming here in July, mainly because the main destinations like Ephesus are packed with tourists, especially the […]

Halikarnas Restaurant, Egirdir, Turkey Five Maudies – Highly Recommended First off, breakfasts in Turkey are unbelievably good. Better than American and English breakfasts and I love bacon, sausages, grits, and eggs. But, what we had in Turkey was simply devine and far more healthy. The best breakfasts we had were at the Urkmez Hotel in […]

Three Maudies – good I wrote a previous article about how many fast food places there are in Kuwait City, Fast Food Hell.  And, indeed, there are. It seems that the main street food one sees in Kuwait is schwarma, minced meat kebabs, and manakish (like a pizza). Right now, I will discuss a Kuwaiti […]

Three-Maudies – good There are four locations in Kuwait City and I didn’t go to any of them. One thing about Kuwait City is I have never seen any city where so many restaurants deliver. Delivery is huge here. I ate four or five meals from Naz, all delivered. I rated this restaurant at two-Maudies […]

Three-Maudies – good Marina Thai has a number of locations in Kuwait City. I would call it fast food. Any restaurant where you get served in plastic foam containers, get plastic “silverware,” and your drink in a paper cup is fast food to me. The locations reflect that to a certain degree, being in a […]

Five Maudies – Highly Recommended Location: Souk Al Kuwait, I wish I could be more specific, I will try and identify it on a satellite map next time I go there Short story is that I have had the best two meals in Kuwait in this tiny restaurant with only outdoor seating on the edge […]

I got my flight on DFS from Bagram to Dubai on the 14th. One thing about Bagram is the beautiful view of the mountains. When I got there, I saw no snow on the highest peaks and by the morning of the 14th, there was snow. Winter is on the way. I never thought I […]

Three Maudies – good My wife and I were in Columbus, GA, for a few days while I went through the Conus Replacement Center at Ft Benning getting ready to deploy to Afghanistan. While there, we hit the two highest rated barbeque places (as rated on yelp.com). We were very disappointed in both, the Georgia […]
