OK…I know what you are thinking…”EW.” I thought the same thing when I uploaded this picture haha. HOWEVER, I did not think ew when this was handed to me, or when I was eating it! So stay open minded! I would like to introduce the one, the only, the famous Ben’s Chili Bowl chili dog in Washington DC.

Danny and I went to visit two of my very best friends Amy and Laura, and Amy’s husband, Tom in DC a couple of weekends ago and this is where we ended up after going to a few bars. I have to admit that I only ordered my hotdog with cheese, therefore this picture was either Tom, Amy or Laura’s hotdog. I think it’s funny because I didn’t realize how BAD the chili looked until I saw the picture I took even though you would think that is why I ordered mine without.

Because Ben’s Chili Bowl hotdogs are famous FOR their chili, and I just had cheese, I tried a bite of one of my friend’s and have to say that it really was dynamite. They had video footage playing of all of the celebrities that have been to Ben’s Chili Bowl over the years, including President Obama, and the history of the restaurant which was really neat.

Ben’s Chili Bowl is also featured on Serious Eats as one of the Top 29 Touristy Spots in America that are actually good. I have to agree! Stop by next time you are in DC for a good lunch, dinner or anytime snack 🙂

It’s good… I promise!

First of all I would like to apologize because I have been MIA the past few weeks! The combination of a broken computer and starting a new job have kept me away from updating ForeverHungry, but certainly have not kept me away from food so there is plenty to catch up on 🙂 I wanted to highlight  Maguro Sushi House today because it is a repeat sushi restaurant on our date night list!

This sushi spot on Main Street in Ramsey is located where Sushi Yoshi used to be. They re-did the decorating inside and it’s really cute and welcoming. The staff is also extremely pleasant and part of the reason why we keep going back. The main reason however is their amazing sushi selection! The food is delicious.

This picture is the Sweet Potato Roll, Shrimp Tempura Roll and Spicy Tuna. Classics, but seriously done right!

Last night, I had the Shogun Roll- Eel, Spicy Tuna, Cucumber, Tempura Flakes and Jalapeno Caviar with Spicy Sauce. OK, I didn’t have it exactly like that, I substituted the cucumber for avocado and nixed the jalapeno caviar, but it was out of this world 🙂 I always like to try a new roll but this might be something I stick with for a while.

First trip to hell’s kitchen

20111030-180901.jpg

My first trip to hells kitchen was a major success. Christy, my mom and I wanted to go somewhere we had never been before so we just googled a couple of restaurants and ended up at 1-2-3 burger. If these sliders in the picture don’t do it for you, I don’t know what will!! Seriously, amazing sliders at amazing prices. Once we got there, at 1 pm, we quickly realized it’s more like a dive bar but we decided to stay for lunch anyway. I know I will be making the trip back for some drinks and delicious bar food in the near future!!

New burger joint!

I have been meaning to try Shake and Sizzle in Mahwah for a while now and finally got around to it! They have a great selection of burgers, ribs and shakes and I would recommend trying it out:)

Sunday fun day at agozar

20111010-154235.jpg

Let’s just start with the fact that I am really excited about sharing this new brunch spot with everyone! (new to me.) Algozar Cuban Restaurant offers an incredible brunch with plenty of options as far as meals and unlimited sangria for 2 hours all at a great price! The fact that I was in great company and it was a gorgeous day weather wise only added to the perfection of the experience.

I went with the “not so classic” Eggs Benedict that consisted of Spanish Ham, poached eggs, Cuban bread and chipolte hollandaise sauce. Amazing.

It was also served with a small salad and yuca fries. The sangria special was definitely worth it as well 🙂

Ok you have all heard me go on and on about my sincere love for a good cheeseburger, yet I have not featured one on FOREVERHUNGRY! One of my fellow wordpress bloggers, LA QUEEN PINS inspired me to go for a good burger this week.

Here it is! Biggies in Carlsdadt, NJ has award winning burgers, ribs, raw bar, etc. as I have mentioned before. However i would really like to focus on the delicious burgers today. This is a plain bacon cheeseburger- but not plain in the taste category by any means!

A simple patty with bacon, cheddar cheese,  swiss cheese, lettuce and tomato placed on a fresh bun is all it took for me to fall in love! Not to mention the waffle fries it comes with are out of the world:)

Amazing burger alert!

Guilty pleasure in a bottle

20110930-033325.jpg

This is how off my “healthy meter” is- I actually saw this soy vanilla chai drink at shop rite and though “wow that sounds delicious AND pretty healthy!” 19 g of protein? Even better!

I bought the close to $3 drink and I was right about one thing… It tasted amazing! The combination of vanilla and chai should incorporated into more things! Unfortunately I was not right when it came to my idea of healthy.

It does have a lot of calories… It is one of those labels that gives you the nutritional value per serving and since it’s one bottle you assume THAT is the serving but it ends up being like 35368 servings! Ok, I’m exaggerating, it’s only 2 but you get my point.

The good news is that it is so filling it almost acts as a meal replacement!

The point of this post is to introduce you to a very satisfying beverage for your taste buds and suggest occasionally treating yourself to one!:)

Healthier Choice BLT

20110929-094620.jpg

This healthier version of a BLT is actually more appealing to me than a classic BLT. And because it is made with Canadian Bacon, I will now refer to this delightful lunch as a “CBLT” 😉

The CBLT is also a healthier choice because whole wheat pita bread is used instead of white. Simply stuff the pita with crispy Canadian bacon, lettuce and tomato and drizzle red wine vinegar and you are good to go! What is your favorite healthy lunch when you are on the go?
