Columbus, OH Edition: Schmidt's Sausage Haus & Restaurant

Schmidts

Schmidt's Sausage Haus & Restaurant is known for two things: sausage and cream puffs.

Schmidts

That may be an odd combo, but at this German restaurant, it's totally the norm.

Man Vs. Food has visited the restaurant - for their very first episode!

So here's the gigantic cream puff. Which really was very good.

And I had to also try the Bahama Mama - which is their famous beef and pork, hickory-smoked sausage spiced with secret seasoning and stuffed in an old world, natural casing. It was awarded Columbus Monthly "10 Best Entrees."

Here's Dawn in awe that I wanted to try both!

The sausage was good, but it was odd to me there wasn't much in the way of sauces to go with it. The mustard at the table was not my preference, so I would've loved another. But it was tasty!

Columbus, OH Edition: 16-Bit Bar + Arcade

16-bit

16-Bit Bar + Arcade is such a fun spot for us adults who like to think we're still kids. Drinks & games? Sign me up.

16-bit

The place has a bunch of classic arcade games, as well as some fun drinks.

16-bit

This is the Hulk Hogan. It's blueberry vodka, lemonade and bomb pop popsicle. Yess.

16-bit

I tried to learn Centipede and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. But then we ended up playing some Mortal Kombat. I mean, any 90s kid would gravitate to that, right?

Columbus, OH Edition: Bibibop Asian Grill

Bibibop

Oddly enough, if there's one restaurant I'm STILL thinking about since leaving Columbus, it's Bibibop.

Bibibop

This counter-service restaurant focuses on Asian flavors, and there are about 30 locations throughout the country.

Bibibop

Despite being full from a day -- or weekend -- of eating, I couldn't resist the lineup of all those amazing toppings.

Bibibop

I got a bowl with white rice, black beans, cheese, corn, with spicy chicken and yum yum and teriyaki sauce. OMG I want it right now. So amazingly delicious.

Columbus, OH Edition: Condado Tacos

Condado Tacos

Condado Tacos is a stop that came up time and time again when I was asking for restaurant suggestions in the area.

Condado Tacos

This build-your-own taco shop allows for tons of customization, but they also have some pre-built tacos.

Condado Tacos

I was excited to try my hand at my own creation, but I soon learned that maybe I should leave it up to the professionals

Condado Tacos

Look at Dawn's cute margarita flight!

Condado Tacos

And while my mash-up of queso fresco, lettuce, tomato, pickled onion was tasty- it was a tad tooo sweet. But not bad!

Columbus, OH Edition: Cookie Dough Creamery

Cookie Dough Creamery

Sometimes your brain just tells you you need ice cream. Immediately.

Cookie Dough Creamery

Dawn and I were driving when we decided to see what ice cream was nearby. Luckily, the Cookie Dough Creamery was nearby - ice cream AND cookie dough. 

Cookie Dough Creamery

I have never been to a cookie dough shop, so this was kind of a win-win. I got a small cup full of ice cream and tried a few different cookie doughs: peanut butter, praline, etc. Safe to eat cookie dough is heaven.

Cookie Dough Creamery

And I'll say it: graham cracker is the most underrated ice cream topping. So good with a little texture and reminds me of smores. MMmmm. So yummy!
