Yesterday I had my "Cincinnati Adventure" - which means I have officially met my very first New Years Goal of the year! The goal was to go somewhere I've never been, with someone else, trying something I've never tried.
My long time friend, Sandra, and I went to Taste of Belgium - a great place to eat in the historic neighborhood of Over the Rhine. While this neighborhood used to be known as one of the sketchiest sections of Cincinnati, parts of it have recently been fixed up making it quite a conglomeration of folks. One street might be the trendiest little place you've ever seen with urban shops, eateries, etc…and then 2 streets over you would think twice before parking your car on the side of the road. I, for one, am quiet interested (and hopeful) to see how they merge these two worlds…I am hoping it's done well.
Taste of Belgium is quite the gem in Over the Rhine. One of their specialties is the Chicken and Waffles dish. I ordered those in addition to an amazing chocolate candied orange latte. The meal was great, the latte was delish and the company was fantastic :)
