Have a recommendation? We'd LOVE to hear it!
Salutations Readers!

Kalamazoo has good food.
Great food, in fact. We have made it our mission to check out all the local eateries one at a time - and more for our own poor memories than any other reason, we'll be chronicling our adventures in food here. And some places float our boats way more than others, which is why we have developed the very scientific
five golden forks rating scale. Ok. It is not scientific at all. It is actually quite unscientific. But, it is something. And now, you can search all of our reviews by the forks rating. YAY!

But, wait! There's more!
Kalamazoo Foodies no longer just eat at restaurants then review them. There are recipes posted, some easy, some less easy, all delicious. There are, or will be, book reviews, the new
Foodie Movie Review-y which will focus on movies about food or ones that have a lot of beautiful food in them. There are other food musings, and hopefully soon contests and so much more. But, Foodie Friends, it is all about food. Because we love it!
And, we want to hear from you!

We want to hear your comments on our recipes and reviews. We want to know where you love to eat. And, we are looking for GUEST bloggers to broaden our horizons a bit. And, if you haven't found us on Facebook, you should do that too. Like our page for other fun Foodies stuff like photos, polls, and more.

SO KALAMAZOO PATRONS - where do YOU love to eat? Because we'd love to check it out and share our thoughts here. Give us a comment below, and quickly! Our tummies are grumbling in anticipation.

A Note from the Foodies about our typical fair:
So, you may notice as you read our blog that we often order the same thing wherever we go. OK, maybe not quite, but we do often order similar things. Kristin has her caprese salads and mushroom dishes. Kate has her baked goat cheese and things with tofu. Well, readers, we wanted to let you know that this is absolutely intentional. A) We love those things, so why not order what you love? And, B) It is a lot easier to compare apples to apples than it is to compare apples to comquats. So, we like to order similar things to have a good sense of how to compare them. Just wanted to let you in on that little secret. Bon appetit!

Bangkok Flavor

Kate: Pad Thai with Tofu
We moved!
We no longer share our building with 200+ college students. We are in a grown up apartment. And, today, we picked up the keys! YAY! My parents are coming in to town tomorrow to help with the move. And, the furniture delivery guys will be here tomorrow as well. So, it is just Paul and I tonight (after Brian, my boss, very amazingly helped up bring over our load of large stuff including our couch. I think he was really pleased to see we are in a third floor apartment!). We have been working hard all day, so we decided to get some carry out and share a meal in our new place.

Paul had already been to Bangkok Flavor. As a heat seeker, and one who works with other heat seekers, he has lunched here once or twice. But, I have not. So, we pulled out the menu that he printed off of the internet and called in our order.

I love it when I am conflicted on what to get... this was one of those instances... there were so many things on the menu that sounded great. And, then, this is what I love, Paul said, 'You should get Pad Thai. You know, for blogging purposes. So you can compare apples to apples.' Love it! So, I did. Pad Thai with tofu of course!

So, we called in our order and drove over to pick up our food... NOTE: You can dine in at Bangkok Flavor. There is a smallish dining room that is nicely decorated. But, what is lacking is space to wait either for a table or for your carry out order. My goodness. One other person walked in and we were cramped. Oh well. Let's see if the food is worth it.

And, it was! YUM! Really fresh tasting ingredients. Good heat (almost too much, actually for me). Well seasoned. Really good. As Pad Thai goes, I believe this is the best I have found in Kalamazoo. I am looking forward to a second go of Bangkok Flavor and trying something else on the menu. And, since it is right next door, that shouldn't be too hard.

four golden forks out of five.
