Easy enough.

So here’s my top 5 favorite places to eat around me.

1. The Coffee Shop — Technically a drink joint, but they have muffins and crap. And I go there every chance I get. So it counts. Great coffee, great ambiance.

2. That Chinese Buffet In The Same Parking Lot As Ace Hardware — The food is decent, but the service is great and the price is even better. I try to go there once a week. They gave me a Christmas gift last year.

3. The Pho Place Behind Food Lion — The Pho Bo Vien is f’ing awesome. And considering there aren’t that many Pho places in my area, it means that much more. Really, really good Pho. Plus it sits in the same parking lot as a decent used bookstore, so it’s a win/win for me when I go.

4. That Mexican Joint Up There By Safeway — The people who own it are from Texas. But the wife is originally from Mexico. So the Mexican food is really Mexican. I like their tacos and coffee.

5. The Donut Shop That’s Open 24 Hours — I’ve only been there once when the power was out in my house. The lady was real nice and had a cool accent. She let me read for an hour, even though I only bought two donuts. The coffee was a tad weak, but it was 9:00 at night. I’m betting the bring out the strong stuff after 11:00.

I’ll tag no one. Feel free to jump on it if you want.

  • I am laughing hysterically imagining the buffet place giving you a Christmas gift. Customer of the month indeed!

  • 😆

    Yeah. I love those people. It was one of those Chinese calenders that you unroll (like it’s on that parchment paper or whatever).

    And when the lady gave it to me, she did it all sneaky like so the other customers wouldn’t notice. 😆

  • Haha.. wow a Christmas gift from the Chinese restaurant… no wonder the listing.

    And wow.. 24/7 donut shop! This one is a sure must list!

    Thanks for doing the tag. 🙂 Enjoy your day

  • That chinese buffet place sounds like a very nice place to be with hospitable ppl!! GIFTS!!! but I still like the donut shop open 24 hours better..there is just this thing about donut joints and 24 hours?! BETTER

  • velverse, yeah, I don’t even tell them what I want to drink anymore. I go in, the guy seats me, and the waitress says “Mountain Dew?” She’s not asking. She’s confirming. 😆

    Nicole, the donuts are good, too. (at least the two i had). They aren’t Krispy Kreme, but they’re good nonetheless.

  • Haha… awww.. you must be a regular. And I assume mountain dew is your favourite eh?

  • trust me when I say all donuts are good..be it plain or sugar coated, colour no colour…I like all donuts…and I see you like mountain dew..:D

  • velverse, yes, yes it is. 😆

    Nicole, absolutely. But hot donuts from Krispy Kreme is a little piece of heaven in every bite
