One of Chris' favorite cable channels is... are you ready for this? The Food Network! And one of his favorite shows is none other than Diners, Drive-ins and Dives. If you've never heard of the show allow me to explain via Wikipedia.
Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives (aka Triple D) is a television program hosted by Guy Fieri in which he travels around the United States looking for the best drive-in restaurants, diners and dive bars. The program focuses on small independent eateries featuring traditional American-style cuisine (such as barbecue, smoked meat, hamburgers, deep fried food, steak, and bacon-and-egg breakfast), regional styles, or ethnic specialties. Most often, the restaurants that the show chooses use fresh ingredients, home-style recipes, and gourmet culinary approaches to what is usually considered non-gourmet food.
Chris makes me laugh when he is watching the show because he salivates over the mostly greasy food that is featured on each episode. Now do you see why Chris LOVES this show?!
A few weeks ago while in Seattle, we were excited to go to Voula's Offshore Cafe! This restaurant was featured on one of the first Triple D episodes. Boy oh boy... was the food ever tasty! If you're ever in the area we highly recommend this joint!
