The Thirsty Koala.

In a predominantly Greek neighborhood (represent!) full of Greek  restaurants and cafes on almost every corner, a little bit of Australia has joined our little clan.

The Thirsty Koala


There was an hour wait so the girls and I went across the street to The Blvd. for a drink and warmth from the frigid air outside.

Once we went back, saw and smelled the food around us, we knew.

It was worth the wait.


I ordered the fish taco. Beautifully presented (mobile picture doesn’t do it justice) and yummy to boot!


Moist grilled Mahi-Mahi with avo salsa, shredded cabbage, fresh peppers, cilantro & white sauce (gluten free)

It was possibly the best fish taco I have eaten. The flavors combusted in my mouth and fired me up (seriously, cilantro is hot!)

My friend had the steak taco.


Grilled steak (looked delicious) caramelized onion, pico de gallo, shredded cabbage, cilantro, and chipotle sauce. (Gluten free)


Key Notes:

They don’t have their liquor license yet (we didn’t know this) so you can BYOB until then.

They are also incredibly busy on the weekend (not surprisingly!) Do make a reservation if you’re planning on dinner.

They even have a Koala Club where you can fuel your future addiction by earning redeemable points.

Such enablers.

A happy Koala!

I have always been a happy person, but due to issues with self esteem and personal insecurities, I have not always been able to let people in or project love unto others. As a Maya Angelou graphic says:


So I made a choice a while back to be positive. It’s taken me a while to get to a point where I can say I’m releasing positivity into the world and ready to receive. Positivity is the key to living a happy life. Change your perspective and the world looks a little rosier. If you’re feeling as though you’re surrounded by negativity, get rid of the things that make you feel that way. Surround yourself with people who love you and raise you up, do things that make you happy and don’t forget to…


*For 2013, I hope you:


and remember what Monty Python said….
