About "Eat My Words"

About this blog

"Eat My Words" is a long time in the making. There is no question that my favorite activity is eating, but beyond that obvious fact, I especially like visiting new restaurants and trying new foods.

That's where the "Adventures in Dining" comes in. I won't be reviewing chain restaurants. The food may be fine, but there is no adventure to a Bob Evans, Applebee's, or Olive Garden! The only time I may blog about one of these establishments might be to comment on something unusual - whether it be good or bad - that may have occurred during my visit. Otherwise, I will be focusing on small, local restaurants that feature unique menu items.

I am not a food snob. I do not have any culinary training. I like what I like and will share my thoughts regarding my meal, a restaurant's ambiance, the attentiveness of the staff, and any other thoughts that may come to mind. Hopefully, readers will enjoy my reviews and try these restaurants for themselves.

Thanks for stopping by and please feel free to share your own feedback!

UPDATE (October 13, 2012): I'm back!! For a variety of reasons (none of them good), I have not posted any reviews for about 18 months. Rest assured, I have continued to eat...just not write! I hope you enjoy my culinary adventures and I welcome any recommendations you might have for me. Bon appetit!

Northstar Cafe (March 21, 2013)

Northstar Cafe

4015 Townsfair Way
Columbus, OH 43219

I drove out to the Easton Town Center to meet with a former State Representative recently.  With many dining options available, I quickly accepted her recommendation of the Northstar Cafe.  I had not eaten there, but had always heard good things about the food.

Menus are available inside the doorway for review by incoming guests.  (By the way, the menu is very welcoming as many of the items can be prepared meat- and dairy-free.)  Once you have made your selection, you place your order at the counter and your meal is delivered to your table.

I chose the Thai Burrito ($11.00) with roasted chicken rather than the seared organic tofu.

The burrito was also filled with crunchy slaw and organic brown rice. It is served with tortilla chips and a Thai peanut dipping sauce.

The burrito was very good and filling.  The peanut sauce nicely completed the dish.

If you're planning to go for lunch, arrive before noon.  Whereas there is comfortable seating, the space fills up quickly.

There are also two other Northstar Cafe locations - in the Short North and Beechwold areas of Columbus.
