Elia’s Mediterranean Cuisine: South Bend, IN, USA Restaurant Review

, , , , , , ,

Elia's Mediterranean Cuisine in South Bend, IN. See my vegan reviewSouth Bend, Indiana does have a small amount of international cuisine options available to University of Notre Dame students and residents.  There is a good amount of Asian restaurants (compared to other Indiana cities) such as Vietnamese and Thai.  There are only a few options we have found for Arabic cuisine such as Jordanian and Lebanese.  We drove past Elia’s Mediterranean Restaurant a few weeks ago and decided we had to test it out.  After all we do eat lots of Jordanian food in our household thanks to our lovely Jordanian friends.  See my vegan review:

Spring in South Bend, Indiana

Today I basically took the whole day to jump into all the editing of photos that I have been collecting for a while now.  There were around 500 or so – or was there more, I don’t even know anymore I lost count.  Thankfully all the photos are done and now I can start to post more freely up here for all of you to enjoy.  Two more videos are uploaded on my YouTube Channel so check those out.  Once these videos are processed and viewable, I will make sure to send out a post to inform all of you.  For now though, I’m so thankful all of you are here reading and looking forward to more content.  For now, I’m off to the gym to work off some of my caffeine buzzzzzzzzz…….

Let me know in the comments section what more you would like to see here on Genki Kitty or on my YouTube channel.  Thanks.

The Mark Dine and Tap South Bend, Indiana USA Vegan OptionsWhy I am not sure exactly however many vegan options around the South Bend, Indiana area are not what one would consider “fancy”.  Do not get me wrong, I’m the type of person that loves a mom and pop shop over any linen covered restaurant any day.  There are times when one wants to have something a bit different of a style though and The Mark Dine & Tap fits that desire of mine.  See all about your vegan options when you click on the link to expand this posting.

Grocery Haul Video #1

Good Morning Genki Readers!  I have exciting news for all of you – well, some of you hopefully will be excited.  As I promised over on Instagram, I would be making a grocery haul video and putting it up for all of you to watch.  It’s my first grocery haul video so I have to admit it could be better but it’s just the start so things can only get better from here on out.  No worries as my friends in Australia would say.  Unfortunately I did accidentally post it on my old YouTube channel (Miko Mikon) but at least all of you can still enjoy it.  If you enjoy these type of vlogs and would like to see more, please just let me know and I will continue to do so.  Or, if you have any other ideas or suggestions, please leave your comments in the comment section.  Thanks.  Enjoy!

Visiting Purdue University: My Alma Mater

Study Japanese at Purdue University

Purdue University, who has heard of this wonderful university located in Indiana?  Hopefully all of you have at least once in your life.  To those of you whom are loyal Genki Readers, you already know I am a Proud Boilermaker.  A few weeks ago my oldest niece had her final orchestra concert for her elementary school.  This is the first concert we have been able to ever go to because it’s the first time living in the same state as my sister and her family.  Moving to Indiana, in part was due to my two nieces and wanting to see them grow up.  As an added plus, her family still lives in West Lafayette, IN – home of the boilers.  So I get to see part of my family and my Alma mater.  As I was walking around campus on a fast tour around the campus sharing my favorite places with my youngest niece, I thought to myself how fun it would be to share a few fun facts about myself at PU and also this international known university.

Vegan Easter 2015

Happy Easter Everyone!  One month late but it still counts right?  Boy am I behind the times…oops! Life continues on though so I just wanted to share our lovely adventures on Easter.  Every year we take a hiking day trip for a full day of adventures.  We used to live in the Shenandoah Mountains area so it was much easier but now we live in corn field country so it was more of a challenge.  We were able to find some nice “bush walking” as my Aussie family would say.  See our adventure here. It was touching to outdoors finally in the spring sunshine and enjoy the sights and sounds of everything blooming into action after the long winter.  Photos and information about the vegan food we ate and our sightings at the link below.
