These are some of the funny moments that don’t quite belong on serious food reviews, but that we thought were too funny not to share with our awesome viewers. This should give you a behind the scenes idea of what goes on both behind the camera, and in front of it.

GoGreen, Bonaire [Lily]
In the middle of the island of Bonaire, a very unsuspecting restaurant lies. Besides the fact that it is slightly hidden, it has some of the greatest and only fresh organic food selections on the island. The owner of this restaurant, Tina, is one of the kindest and most giving people we have ever eaten with. Every day we ate with her, she had prepared a special meal for us, made with love and care. Her food was so delicious that didn’t have to eat for the rest of the day, and we came back for it nearly every single day. Thank you Tina for being so amazing, and if anyone is ever in Bonaire, Tina’s restaurant is a must.
Fish Bar, Chicago IL [Lily]
Fish Bar is is small yet extremely lively restaurant right next to DMK. This restaurant was great for pescatarians like Lily, because their menu was made up of delicious fish items in many different forms. The desert was fun and creative: we were given our own personal mini fire along with all the materials to make ourselves delicious s’mores! The wait staff was so friendly and personable. Special thanks to our waitress Kate, who brought us many complementary dishes for us to enjoy!
MK, Chicago IL [Lily]
In this video, we visited the restaurant called MK for a family night dinner. They offer this every Sunday. It is a great opportunity for your family to bond, while sharing and enjoying amazing food. MK has a pre selected menu for family night, but if you do not like one of their selections, you can order something you do like à la carte. The waiters are very friendly and personable and happy. Everyone is talkative and very kind, and the service is very fast.
Ada, Chicago IL [Ram & Lily]
Ada is a beautiful restaurant tucked away in the back nooks of Chicago. You would think no one knows it exist because of how hidden it is, but when we arrived on a warm summer evening, it was totally alive with people. We were seated outside on their back patio, which is covered with astroturf. Our enthusiastic and happy waitress was keen on telling us all about their menu, which is full of fresh, delicious food. Everything both of us ate tasted so full of life and flavor that we couldn’t get enough. Ram had to order their delicious dessert of pretzel bread pudding with maple whipped cream. It was “heavenly!”
Little Goat, Chicago IL [By Tag]
The best burger Ram and Tag have ever eaten is at the restaurant Little Goat. This burger is called the Goat Almighty. It is stacked with so many delicious things: there are three different types of meat, and countless other amazing toppings. The food at Little Goat is fresh, and the restaurant has a very lively atmosphere. Their menu was so full, and there were so many different delicious looking dishes to choose from, that we had the biggest meal we had ever eaten during a review. Thank you to our wait staff, the chefs, and the brains behind the best burger ever!
ING, CHICAGO REVIEW [BY RAM]
For this food review, Ram visits ING, the home of the Miracle Berry! This is a crazy magical berry that has a special secret that tricks your tastebuds into thinking that sour is sweet!!!
Besides having this secret berry, this restaurant had some very nice flavorful foods. They were very creative in their ways of presenting and preparing the foods. For example, they created a snow cone that looked like it had hit the ground, and a disassembled falafel.
Overall this eating experience was an extraordinary one of a kind.
LUCA, CAYMAN ISLANDS REVIEW [BY RAM]
In the Cayman Islands, we visited the lovely restaurant called Luca.
They were kind enough to show us around the ins and outs of the back kitchens where magic, in the form of food, is made. We learned about what the chef likes to cook, and why!
We loved the food and friendliness of the people who worked there. They seemed as though they were doing exactly what they loved, and that was reflected in their food as well for sure.
BLUE AT THE RITZ CARLTON, CAYMAN ISLANDS REVIEW [BY RAM]
While staying at the lovely Ritz Carlton in the Cayman Islands, we had the ultimate pleasure of visiting and eating at the beautiful restaurant there called Blue.
Everything about our experience at Blue was totally wonderful. Our excellent wait staff made us feel comfortable and at home right away, describing everything we wondered about on the menu, and talking with us openly about his experience working there and what ultimately draws him back to work each day. To top that off, the food was totally impeccable. We took turns talking about the food and describing its deliciousness.
Overall, our experience was extravagant in the best way possible. Enjoy this review as much as we loved making it and be sure to visit Blue if the opportunity presents itself to you!
LUNG KING HEEN AT THE FOUR SEASONS, HONG KONG REVIEW [BY RAM]
In Hong Kong at the Lung King Heen (translates to “View of the Dragon”) restaurant at the Four Seasons Hotel, we ate a traditional Chinese dim sum.
Chef Chan Yan Tak was the first Chinese chef to receive three Michelin stars! We experienced foods neither of us had tried before, but despite this, we thoroughly enjoyed nearly every new thing we ate. The General Manager even provided us with a Michelin Guide, signed by Chef Chan, and chef du cuisine, Fabrice Vulin of the two Michelin star restaurant, Caprice. So shout out to the kindness of the General Manager!
Due to proprietary reasons, we were unable to show the ambiance of the restaurant, but it was bright, happy, and overall a nice atmosphere to be a part of. Each dish was described to us in great detail by our waiter, and was eaten until there was not more left.
