Yuka review

Yuka review

By on 3 April, 2019 in Food, Kate and Stephen, Restaurant Reviews with 0 Comments

Yuka Roll and Pho, just across the Boulevard on Vaughn, is a really great and affordable place to eat. We’ve been there twice, and it may be the best place in town for sushi – at least when you mix in factors like price, crowd, quick service, and variety. Montgomery’s sushi scene has always been […]

Saffron

Saffron

By on 18 February, 2019 in Food, Kate and Stephen, Restaurant Reviews with 0 Comments

We’ve got a new favorite Indian food restaurant in town, and although it requires us to drive way out east to the part of the city that we don’t prefer, it’s the best spot currently operating in Montgomery. Saffron is in the same space as Taste of India, which then became The Bay Leaf,¬†which we […]

5 Points Deli & Grill

We knew our future neighborhood when we saw it. On our first visit to Montgomery, I was very excited to live close to the Five Points area. We could walk to the Capri! Or to Capitol Book & News! And for a while, this came to pass. We’d take the dog up to Cafe Louisa, […]

Pierce’s Country Cooking

By on 7 January, 2019 in Food, Municipal business, Restaurant Reviews with 1 Comment

There’s a certain kind of restaurant decor that lets you know that the restaurant is really part of the community, run by people who are invested in the success of the people who eat there. Pierce’s Country Cooking (610 W. Fairview Ave.) embodies this kind of aesthetic, where every square inch of wall space is […]

Pies and Pints

By on 25 August, 2018 in Food, Kate and Stephen, Restaurant Reviews with 0 Comments

We sure have written about a lot of pizza places for Midtown Montgomery Living over the years. Just last week, our review found the atmosphere at Bibb Street Pizza to be pretty fun, even though the food was kind of uninspiring. And our first ever post here, a long eight years ago, was about our […]

Rock and Roll Sushi

Rock and Roll Sushi

By on 16 April, 2018 in Food, Kate and Stephen, Restaurant Reviews with 0 Comments

For a town with so much fresh seafood, good sushi is surprisingly hard to find. So when we heard that a new franchise sushi place was opening out by Whole Foods, we made the long trek East to see what it was all about. Both times we went, the place was pretty packed, with servers […]

Four Things For a Weekend

Four Things For a Weekend

By on 5 March, 2018 in Food, Fun, Kate and Stephen, Restaurant Reviews with 0 Comments

Some weekends, you might do nothing. Some weekends, you might try to do too much. We did about four noteworthy things this weekend, and felt like they comprised the right amount of “stuff” on a weekend. We weren’t in full “slacking on the couch” lazy mode, but we weren’t hectically scheduled either. Here are the […]

High Five Poke

High Five Poke

I’m sorry. What? Are you trying to poke me? No. It’s pronounced poh-kay. It rhymes with “okay.” So like Pokemon? No. Well, ok. So long as there’s no poking involved. What is it? It’s food! It’s a new restaurant in Montgomery! It’s a trend that might actually have some staying power because it’s delicious! Where […]

First Watch

First Watch

By on 3 January, 2018 in Kate and Stephen, Restaurant Reviews with 0 Comments

It was cold outside, and we wanted brunch. We headed over to Zelda Road to go to First Watch, a place that’s quickly risen to the top of our local list. We’d been there for a “take Mom to lunch” type of thing, and also had an early morning coffee there. The place bills itself […]

Decker’s Cafe

Decker’s Cafe

By on 21 November, 2017 in Food, Restaurant Reviews with 0 Comments

It’s strange. Decker’s Cafe has a sign, but almost no online presence. There are a handful of seemingly-defunct Facebook pages, but that’s about it. It’s located at 500 Monroe Street in the Lurleen B. Wallace office building. Lurleen Wallace, pictured below looking crisp in a white blazer, was Alabama’s first female governor, and much like […]
