I'll admit, I'm not quite sure what to make of kombucha.
I've tried it elsewhere and didn't have much of a taste for it.
And, upon reading more about it, I worried if it was safe to drink.
Fortunately, when you walk into Bucha Brewhouse & Bistro in Princeton - they tell you right off the bat what it is.
It originated in China in 221 BC. It's a lightly fermented beverage made from sweet tea or coffee and a symbiotic culture of bacteria and yeast.
The space is so neat, with the original built-ins from its past life as a clothing store.
I ordered the "mango" kombucha.
And, I did a half soup, half sandwich lunch.
Half a grilled cheese, and half Spanish rice soup.

A new Princeton restaurant is combining two classics: pizza and Italian beef.
Slice Italian Beef & Pizza has your classic pies, but it also has sandwiches like the Chicago favorite Italian beef; the Elvis with banana, peanut butter and jelly; bratwurst; hot dogs; and Philly cheesesteaks.
After looking over the menu, though, I had to go with a jumbo pepperoni roll.
It was stuffed with cheese, with marinara on the side.
This is definitely a whole-meal roll.
Look at that beauty.

David's Downtown has been on my wishlist for quite some time.
But the weekday lunch hours were tough for my schedule.
When I found myself in the area during a time they were open, I made plans to stop by.
The menu features appetizers, salads and sandwiches
But they also have weekly specials.
And I ended up ordering from there: shrimp po boy with lettuce, pickles, onion, dill sauce and it came with one side. I went with corn chowder.

I've been hunting for the best coffee shops in West Virginia lately.
So when I had to make a trip through Beckley, I made a point to check out HeBrews Coffee Shop.
This roadside coffee stop has a drive-thru for coffee and baked goods.
I went for a latte with caramel and a cheese danish.

The name "The World's End Restaurant" creates intrigue.
What it actually means is it serves a variety of all sorts of cuisines from across the world.
It ranges from curries and sushi and Thai to Vietnamese and Chinese.
The restaurant space reflects the eclectic menu. There are goods for sale, as well as more thrift store items on a pay-as-you-can scale.
The restaurant is primarily take-out.
So I sat at one of the tables and thumbed through a menu, as well as read over the daily specials.
Ultimately I went with a crab & cheese roll.
And, I got their "VooDoo pasta" special.
So after chatting with folks while my meal cooked, I was handed my bag of deliciousness and headed on my way back to town.
I even got jumbo shrimp with my pasta, because that makes everything better!
Both were tasty and unique to have this combo.
