Manila Resto: Creative Combinations

Manila Resto: Creative Combinations

My husband and I ventured out to dinner at Manila Resto on a Friday evening. We were seated right next to the window on Algoma Street. On my left was the warm colorful atmosphere of the restaurant. On my right, the architecture and characters of Oshkosh.To start the...

Lunchtime Nostalgia at Lunch Box

Lunchtime Nostalgia at Lunch Box

I’ll be honest, I’m not much of a lunch person. Breakfast is my favorite meal, and if I need to eat something during the lunch hour, I’ll opt for a smoothie or something lighter. One place I wanted to try when I started writing for Nosh was Lunch Box in Oshkosh. After...

Do Not Attempt to Dodge this Caribbean Taste

Do Not Attempt to Dodge this Caribbean Taste

Tuesday. What is there to do on a Tuesday? Hardly anything, ever, really. Tuesday falls too early in the week and yet is so far removed from the weekend. Sometimes it is just another Monday masquerading as a Tuesday. 313 Dodge might just be what you are looking for....

Wisconsin Staples at Gabe’s Wisconsin Kitchen and Tavern

As I’m getting used to living in Wisconsin, I’m discovering some of the Wisconsin staples when it comes to food and spirits. I knew about Spotted Cow and cheese curds before I moved to Wisconsin, but that was about it. Fortunately, Gabe’s Wisconsin Kitchen and Tavern...

Sweets Treats at Carmel Crisp

Sweets Treats at Carmel Crisp

If you’re looking for a place to order coffee, cookies, and other sweet treats, you need to visit Caramel Crisp Corner in downtown Oshkosh. I ordered from them during Downtown Oshkosh’s Lunch Bucks event March 29th-April 2nd.  About Caramel Crisp It’s hard to picture...

I Knead to Tell you About Thunderbird Bakery in Oshkosh

I Knead to Tell you About Thunderbird Bakery in Oshkosh

Since relocating to Oshkosh, my fiance and I have done a good job of finding our new go-to's for things like groceries, pizza, burgers, etc. However, we had yet to find a good bakery in town. That is until we stumbled upon Thunderbird Bakery in Oshkosh. I knew about...

Delivering a Taste of the Carribean

I still remember when the Jerk Joint first opened. It’s always so exciting when a new restaurant opens up in the Fox Valley. Jerk Joint was no different. First time there I ordered the sweet ting chicken. I left a review on yelp saying: “I wouldn’t be mad if this was my last meal.” To this day nothing has changed. I can honestly say I’ve never tried anything I didn’t like here. If I ever have a bad day, chances are I’m ordering something from here.

This time I did delivery. I haven’t eaten there in person since about early March 2020. Based on their social media accounts, they do seem to be open for in person dining. My go-to dish almost every time I go is the sweet ting chicken. This time I decided on ordering the 2 meat platter, (which includes peas cabbage, and rice) that way I am able to try a new meat, but also not neglecting my favorite dish. But I didn’t try anything new, I went with another fave… the drunken pig. Also every time I go, I always make sure to grab a slice of rum cake. It always makes me feel like I am right in the Caribbean with every bite I take. It is definitely a must try!

Bring Jamaica to Wisconsin

Thinking back to when I have dined there in person, they are always blasting reggae music, so it really makes me feel like I am in the tropics. Which is always a nice feeling, especially in Wisconsin! Even though we are coming up on spring, a bit of warmth via food is never a bad thing. Next time I really want to try the mango lime bowl. Come to the Jerk Joint if you want to treat your taste buds to the flavors of Jamaica!
