Crumbs January 2, 2013

Let’s start the New Year off right with a donation to Truck Farm Omaha. Truck Farm Omaha travels around our area educating our youth about where their food comes from in a very hands-on way by showing them how to garden in the back of a truck. If you visit their website and donate, your donation can sponsor a Truck Farm visit that teaches kids about food through Truck Farm Omaha’s mobile garden. The website is www.truckfarmomaha.com for more information.

2012: A Year in Review

When I moved to Omaha five years ago, there were only a handful of restaurants that I felt hit it out of the park with their dining experiences. However, in just this past year, so many new restaurants have opened that now bring the Omaha dining scene to an entirely new level.
Restaurants like J. Coco and Lot 2 elevate culinary expectations by delivering fresh, unique and innovative dishes. J.Coco gives us delicious classics like lamb and duck, and then also more innovative dishes like kurobuto pork chops and Korean style short rib tacos. All with their own flavor palates and wonderful tastes. Additionally, Lot 2 is changing the face of Benson with its upscale neighborhood dining...

My Secret is Out: Mai Thai in Arksarben Village

I’m not going to lie, I’m a bit disappointed in Mai Tai. No, it’s not because of the quality of food or the service provided, but because they took my secret favorite spot and let the rest of Omaha know about it. I used to love going to the Mai Tai location out west – it has less than 10 tables and was my hole in the wall place for true authentic Thai food. However, now, it seems that I have to share my love of Mai Tai with the rest of Omaha because they have opened a larger, second location in Aksarben Village and people are talking and loving it the same way I do. Luckily, the larger location allows for short or no wait times and the food is just as enjoyable at their original location....
