Dope! Asian Street Fare - Incredible Ramen and Dumplings Vendor ... at Kroger? - Cincinnati, Ohio

I'm not a food court person, even in shopping malls. My boyfriend on the other hand, recently saw that the Kroger grocery store on Beechmont Ave in Anderson Township has a food court. He desperately wanted to try Dope! Asian Street Fare, which is one of the local businesses serving as a food court vendor. I did not have high hopes, because who eats lunch at a grocery store? Turns out, you should.

T-swirl Crêpe - Incredible Crème Brûlée Crêpe - Indianapolis, Indiana

During our recent trip to Indianapolis, my boyfriend and I stopped at what we thought was a ramen shop. Instead, we found both a ramen shop and a crêpe shop that shared the same building ground floor. The only separation between the food options is a register and different staff working on opposite ends of the floor. We had some amazing ramen at Wei Ramen (review coming) and then we got a lovely crêpe.

Washington Park - Activities & Events - Cincinnati, Ohio

I have to say, I love public parks. I'm always on the lookout for safe places to sit and enjoy nice weather, grab some decent food, and shop locally. Washington Park, right in the middle of Over the Rhine (OTR), is a great place to do all of these things. We recently stumbled upon a flea market while visiting and had a great time looking through all the unique items the vendors were selling.

Pins Mechanical Co. Bowling Bar - Fun, Lifesize Party Games - Indianapolis, IN

The most important thing to know about Pins Mechanical Company is that it's a bowling bar. Every location has numerous duckpin bowling lanes to enjoy. They also have multiple bars and outdoor patio areas to sit at and enjoy your drink. We went to their Over The Rhine location in Cincinnati a few weeks ago and discussed our bowling and drinking experience, which you can read about here.

Servatii Pastry Shop - Huge Dessert Selection - Cincinnati, OH

Before visiting Servatii's, I thought the best Boston Cream donut in the area was at Graeter's. I'm happy to say this is no longer the case and Servatii's is now my go-to for donuts when in Cincinnati. We visited Servatii earlier this month and we were thrilled with their lovely sit-down area, the vast selection of desserts, pretzels, and dessert bread available, and the kind staff members.

Tender Towne - Best Fast Food Chicken? - Cincinnati, Ohio

My partner and I are big fans of fried chicken. We regularly go around to new restaurants and fast food places in the area and compare their chicken tenders. Tender Towne was next on our list for fast-food chicken tenders after trying out McDonald's Wendy's, Burger King, Popeye's, White Castle, KFC, Chick-fil-A, Raising Cane's, Lee's, and Culver's. Here's how their tenders compare to our favorites.

Whit's Frozen Custard - Independence, KY

I'm a huge fan of custard ice cream. Because of the egg yolks, custard ice cream is thicker and creamier than your traditional ice cream. It's also more intensive to make and harder to find. My boyfriend and I were more than happy to make the trek to Whit's Frozen Custard in Independence, KY.

Pet Wants: The Urban Feed Store - Cincinnati, Ohio

While exploring Over the Rhine, we stumbled upon Pet Wants Urban Feed Store. This shop has pet supplies for both cats and dogs but we didn't see items for other species. The staff member was very helpful and suggested many different products for our cat, even though the store seems to have more of a dog focus.
