You get a choice when you order Red Beans and Rice here.  You can add pork chops, hot sausage, or fried chicken.  I picked the pork chops, because they remind me of all the days my mother slaved over a hot stove for me and my father.  She would work during the day, pick me up from school, and still find time to get in that kitchen. She’d make sure we were fed.  And, every time she made them. The glorious smell of those pork chops, frying on the pan, would light up the whole house.  _________________________________________  #redbeansandrice #porkchops #delicious #neworleansclassic #hoodclassic #mamasmeals #amotherslove #backintheday #memories #soulfood #foodforthesoul #lousianaeats #neworleanseats #foodblog #urbanculture #urbaneating #lifeoftheurbaneater
Warms my heart, when I see a dad, with his daughter on his shoulders. #beautiful  #memories #zuluball2018 #daddyslittlegirl #blackmen #dads # daughters #fathers #blackfathers #blackexcellence #mardigras #lifeofanurbaneater
FORGOT I was lactose intolerant with this right here.  Their Frozen Cafe Au Lait was perfect on this 75 degree day.  But 30 minutes later, I remembered...πŸ˜•πŸšΆπŸΎ‍β™€οΈπŸƒπŸΎ‍♀️ ____________________________________________  #mardigras2018 #neworleans #neworleansfood #morethanbeignets #frozen #cafeaulait #delish #caffeinated #tasty #frozenbeverage #realaf #lactoseintolerant #neworleanseats #urbanguide #urbanlifestyle #urbaneats #lifeoftheurbaneater
“Buy a concert ticket in an adjacent city.  Hop on a greyhound.  Book an Airbnb.  Take lots of pictures.  Eat everything.  Travel Local.” - The UrbanEater πŸšŽπŸ›£πŸ› ——————————————————— Traveling and vacations, don’t HAVE to mean island hopping.  Beaches will forever be my fave.  But, once in while, I enjoy saving that coin.  If you live in the Tri-state area, then your neighboring cities have a ton to offer.  This particular vacay to Philadelphia cost me a whopping $148, before going out to eat. $20 round trip greyhound from NYC. $128 for my Airbnb, and that’s only because I’m a little bougie.
“It’s more than okay to be alone, it’s necessary”. - TheUrbanEater ———————————————— There isn’t one person on this planet that is gonna be more loyal to you, than you.  Find you, then hop on a plane.  And, if you can’t find you. Then hop on a plane anyway (alone), and I guarantee you’ll find you there. • • • #urbaneaterquotes #solitude #hadtogetaway #nostress #sunrays #sunkissed #worldtraveler #jetsetter #realaf #goodvibesonly #doyou #travelmore #findpeacewithinyourself #motivation #theouterbanks #northcarolina #lifeoftheurbaneater
“You owe, no one, nada.” - TheUrbanEater ——————————————————— When you’re poppin, people want to know what the secret to your success is.  You owe no explanations.  Keep your mystery.  Let people try to figure you out.  You show them a half truth and they’ll swear they know whole truth, regardless of what you say. • #urbaneaterquotes #lifeoftheurbaneater #weekendvibes #weekendgetaway #sunkissed #melinin #individuality #mysterious #originality #focusonyourself #selfcare #motivation #theouterbanks #northcarolina

“You can take the girl outta the city, but you can’t take the city outta the girl”. - The UrbanEater ——————————————————— On some real, I can tell you the fastest way to the Brooklyn bridge, but wouldn’t know the first thing about working on a farm. 🀷🏾‍♀️ When the roosters start cockadoodling, I’m like can you shut the hell up, I’m on vacay.

Ode to the little break you take at work, that you gave yourself. And, how no one trips when you get back, because you brought everyone food. 😝😎 #fridaysbelike #imbuying #irishexit #imhungry #fuckthisshitimout #hangry #frenchbakery #frenchcafe #freshbakedbread #espresso #nyceats #queenseats #5boroughs #foodblog #foodiegram #urbanliving #urbanculture #urbaneating #lifeofanurbaneater
My bad ya’ll, I’ve been hibernating.  REALLY, been keeping to my damn SELF.  Don’t know about you, but I get all in my thoughts and feelings in the winter. Tend to go out less, and cook more.  Hang around my neighborhood spots. Watch a ton of television. It’s quiet and it can get lonely.  But, on that last day, you wake up.  Then, everything makes sense.  Why, you needed to step away.  Why, you needed to detach.  What, you needed to improve on and tweak. Your weaknesses, your strengths. Purpose, and reconnecting with that. HAPPY NEW YEAR UrbanEaters!  Work on you. • • • • #winter #reflection #selfimprovement #selflove #selfcare #taketimeforyourself #newyear #newyou #purpose #goals  #liveyourbestlife #urbanliving #urbandreaming #urbanstyle #urbanlifestyle #foodculture #urbaneating #lifeofanurbaneater
πŸ—£Big up to all my New Yorkers that went to work today, in spite of this blizzard.  I thought of you while making these tacos today.  First time making Syracuse style salt potatoes, and clearly was inspired by this salty ass storm.  Stay safe out there y’all! 😘 #nycblizzard2018 #chipotle #mushroom #cheeseeggs #purplepotatoes #saltpotatoes #breakfasttacos #keepingmyassinthehouse #mothernatureaintplaying  #breakfast #tacotime #tacoobsession #tacolover #coldweathercure #homemade #homechef #foodblog #foodblogger #urbanguide #urbanlifestyle #nyceats #harlemeats #urbaneating #lifeofanurbaneater
Reflect, and think.  It’s the small things that matter.  Who’s that person, you can always depend on?  Who’s that person, that will always pick up the phone when you call? Who feeds you? Who buys you drinks? Who makes you laugh?  Laughter is a gift and a privilege, not a right.  If all you do is take, and demand things from others. You have some work to do this year.  Start by simply, doing something for someone else.  Something small.  Aim to be more like her... #goals2018 #newyearsresolution #inspirationalquotes #giveback #losetheego #urbaneatergoals #mothertheresa #icon #revolutionary #history #herstory #history #roadtrip #philidelphiaart #mustseeexhibit #philadelphiaeats #urbanculture #urbanliving #urbanstyle #urbaneating #liveright #lifeofanurbaneater
Christmas Day, they had my back.  Ate dinner, dropped the family off, then had nothing to do.  Walked up the hill, peeped the grange.  It looked all cozy inside. Had to have a cocktail or three.  Got warm with a “grange hot buttered cider”. Wasn’t too sweet, had a salted rim, and went down easy.  Thanks for the Christmas love πŸ˜‰ • • • #christmasday #holidaylove  #grownupstuff #nokidsallowed #adulting #hotbutteredcider #maple #saltedrim #holidaydrinks #class #bestcocktails #nycelite #prettyinthecity #instapic #foodblog #adrinkortwo #harlemdrinks #harlemeats #nyceats #nycdrinks #urbaneating #urbandrinking #urbanstyle #urbanadventure #lifeofanurbaneater
