Richmond - A Town for Foodies

    Well, dear readers, I have officially moved to Richmond, Virginia. Wow. Let's soak that in , shall we? I always said I wanted to live in a big city and boy did I find one. Each street has a different atmosphere, the people are wonderful, and it's always sunny. I think I'll fit in here, but I am still anxious about the future...

    I am making it my mission to leave this city knowing at least a dozen good food joints. I really think the food tells a lot about a city and from the looks of it, Richmond is a very eclectic place.

    Yesterday I got the name of a good place to eat from a nice lady in my leasing office. Random, right? Not so much - people here are really proud of their city and love sharing it with out-of-towners. The place was called Jamaica House and you can check out their location/reviews here. We had their Island Fried Chicken and Curried Goat. I really loved how the food was served over rice and beans AND with a crunchy salad. It made for a great textural profile. And the flavors had really developed because we ordered the curry later in the day, so it had all day for the flavors to meld together. The portions were HUGE and tasty and made fresh on site and right when you order. KFC doesn't cut it, guys. This fried chicken was bangin' ;) - wayyy better than anything I've ever had in Michigan - but then again, I still haven't tried homemade fried chicken, which I am sure is a totally different beast all together. Their website is - you can see some pictures there.

    If you have any suggestions on where I should head next, let me know!
