Bacon is at the top of my favorite foods list. Whether it is huge chunks added to a steak salad or served on top of potato skins that flavor makes everything taste better. So when a friend of my wife's recommended the Bacon Barn, we hi-tailed our way over.

Skip Tortilla Flat

There is a sad harsh reality trying to find decent Mexican food in New Hampshire. Most of what you get is mediocre at best and unless you want to make a trip south or the border the choices are limited. With that said we continue looking and that brought us to the Epping location of Tortilla Flat.

Bavaria German Restaurant Hidden Gem

My experience with German culture has been limited over the years other than learning a little of the language and partaking in sampling delicious pastries made by the mother of a high school friend.

Small plates won't leave you blue at Stella Blu

Upon walking into Stella Blu something hits you that is unique in terms of a restaurant experience. Looking around you see guests chatting away with each other, smiles everywhere whether from our own waitress or at their large focal point bar where the bartenders greet customers like they are happy to have them in for a visit. This feeling of being made to feel welcome is difficult to find but when you are there in the moment there is nothing more valuable with all the doom and gloom that sometimes surrounds us.
