Your Neighborhood Chinese Delivery – Peking House

Sometimes I feel like we get so wrapped up in the new, the unique, and the expensive that we forget about our friendly neighborhood restaurants.  We forget that they are there as well, and looking to serve us delicious food with friendly service.  A few months ago, my love and I received a menu on…

Am I allowed to call myself a Published Food Critic now?

I’m published! I’m published! I’m published! If you’ve been following The Onyx Plate on Facebook and Twitter, you might already know this little bit of information…and you very well might be tired of hearing about it. My apologies if so. Otherwise, I’m super excited and extremely proud of myself. Did I just say that? I…

Sundays with Friends: Vinnie’s Neighborhood Italian

I’m breaking from the traditional format of Sundays with Friends for the simple purpose of telling you about the final restaurant we visited in Asheville, NC. Once again, just like Stoney Knob Café, this one is in Weaverville, NC. I feel this goes with the Sundays with Friends title, because as soon as you walk…

Transported: Destination, Stoney Knob Café in Asheville, NC

Darryl’s Wood Fired Grill – Old Dog, New Tricks

Let’s face it. There are restaurants that we may never go to because of how we perceive them. Sure, sometimes we are right. But, sometimes, just sometimes, there is that one that we misjudged. See, that’s how I was with Darryl’s Wood Fired Grill. When you’re young, you don’t think about going to the place…

Zack’s vs. Boston’s : It’s a good reason to be a divided household.

We all have it…or at least hopefully we do. Frankly, I can’t imagine a little town without it honestly. In Burlington, we have these two hot dog shops that seem to be in constant competition, Zack’s and Boston’s. Or, at least you rarely hear one mentioned without the other being mentioned as well, and they…

J. Pepper’s Southern Grille: Local and Delicious!

Throughout my entire birthday vacation, I have been going on one Foodie Adventure after another. I’ve actually enjoyed every single adventure I have been on immensely, and everyone that I have been on them with.  One more day! Thursday was certainly another special Foodie Adventure, especially for a Foodie like myself that loves Peppers! Mom…

Iron Hen Café: Fresh. Local. Good. Simply Amazing!

As some of you may know, I have a birthday coming up tomorrow. On a sidenote: Has anyone figured out how to stop the birthdays from coming around making us older? This is really getting old…no pun intended. I have also been off work for a few days, and plan on being off all next…
