When the temperature drops, I seek out hearty, nutrient dense meals. The warm "Foraged Bowl" from @sisueats is packed with Quinoa, Kale, Mushroom, Red Cabbage Kraut, Eggplant, Black Garlic Broth, and topped with Tofu. All the good stuff I need to kick the colds ass when I'm hiking up a mountain. If you haven't checked out @sisueats yet, they are at the forefront in providing healthy, locally sourced, and environmentally friendly "fast food". .

"The Britney" at @breadhive is a classic. Lox, Red Onion, Cucumber, Scallion & Dill Cream Cheese, on a Poppy Seed Bagel. The Lox was super fresh and creamy, the bagel nice and chewy. Available all day, but definitely worth a stop to start your morning in Buffalo. .

You should check out @localsonly311 tonight. Every Monday special guest Chef @a1mochung takes over the kitchen, cooking up his own special comfort dishes. The Housemade Pasta with Mushroom, Onion, Romano and Ham was sooooooo good. Only $8! Fingers crossed his Fried Chicken also makes a return. .

@sisueats is my new happy place. Led by Chef @scottriesenberger, they offer fresh, nutritional meals that promote our local farmers, seasonal ingredients, and zero waste. They are changing the perception that "fast food" cannot be healthy, not only for us, but for the environment. I think these guys have started something seriously awesome, and they should be supported. Show them that @rocfoodies hug with a follow, and go check out their new fall menu that is rolling out. The place is beautifully renovated, with tons of parking. I for one am freaking excited that I finally have a healthy, affordable, and quick option on the west side! The "Autumn Comfort" tastes exactly like the name implies. With a Butternut Squash Base, Sweet Potato, Sage, Squash Pesto, and Maple Brown Butter Vinaigrete, it's heaven on these chilly fall days.

Fall flavors are peaking at @brancabasin. The ‘Lost at Sea’ is cozy and comforting, like a warm blanket on these seasonally cooler nights. With notes of Cloves, Cinnamon, and Nutmeg; Sailor Jerry Rum, Lime, Sugar, Allspice and Rosemary round out this aromatic cocktail.

Where the heck did Juicy Seafood come from? This Viet-Cajun seafood boil joint opened over the summer, apparently under the radar of most everyone. It’s definitely some type of quietly disguised chain from the South, but for portion sizes and prices, I think it’s worth checking out. Certainly nothing else like it in the area, and you’ll know exactly what I mean walking into the place. Just be sure to wear clothes you don’t care about, because it’s MESSY. Pro tip, order at least medium heat, and the combination Juicy Sauce(Cajun, Garlic Butter, Lemon Pepper). Pictured was the Snow Crab, Shrimp, Crawfish Boil with Potatoes and Corn. Really tasty, and there must have been at least eighteen shrimp in there!

Real pizza does exist in Rochester. The ‘Marinara’ at @brancabasin is wood-fired with San Marzano tomato sauce, Pecorino, Garlic, Oregano, Crushed Red Pepper, and Extra Virgin Olive Oil. I’m a pizza purist. Give me sauce, cheese, herbs and a crispy thin dough. Save the nonsense toppings for my salad. Does your ideal pie exist in the ROC?

@allenburgerventure in Buffalo lives up to the hype. Burger “Ten” was so damn juicy, and those hand cut fries, oh lawdy! Caramelized Onions, Balsamic Reduction, Applewood Smoked Bacon, Warm Gruyère, Arugula. All of their burgers are fresh dry-aged grass-fed angus beef, hormone and antibiotic-free, sourced from verified humane and sustainable ranches. Check them out if you’re ever in town.

Akwaaba is the new king of comfort food, and these siblings from Ghana are serving up serious African eats. Recently opened in College Town, this brother and sister duo are the most inviting and welcoming people I've ever met. The moment you walk in, your senses are enveloped with all of the amazing spices you're about to taste. For the timid, and unfamiliar, fear not. Mohammed’s huge smile will be there to greet you, guide you through the menu, and offer suggestions on where and how to start your journey into their cuisine. My first choice would be the Jollof Rice(Chicken) shown above. A super fragrant dish of Jasmine Rice in Tomato Sauce, topped with a Tomato and Onion Stew, and a side of House Salad. You haven't had Fried Chicken like this before! Show these guys some rocfoodies love, and support new ethnic eats in our city. They are at the OLD India House Express location, 1330 Mt Hope. They open at 1130am most days I believe, I went on a Saturday. Call ahead to double check. 585-434-0040. #rocfoodies #roceats #africanfood #africanfoods #ghana #africanfoodporn #africanfoodie #africanfoodyummy #rochesterny #thisisroc #roctopshots #iheartny #huffposttaste #foodgawker #explorerochester #friedchicken #jollofrice #stew
