If you're ever in the Norfolk/Virginia Beach area, you must eat at Handsome Biscuit. When my friend Lisa found out I was visiting Lance in Virginia Beach, she told me I must try Handsome Biscuit. I passed the recommendation along to Lance and his friends had been telling him the same thing. So during my visit we made it a point to fit it into our schedule. Handsome Biscuit is located in a random (somewhat shady) area of Ghent in Norfolk. It's just a little building with some indoor tables and a small outdoor porch. Even though we heard it was usually crowded, it was pretty empty when we visited so we snag a table in the corner. If you're thinking these biscuits look good, you're right. They were sooooooooooooo delicious. Lance and I both order the Hella Fitzgerald with fried Chicken with bacon, cheddar, and red eye sausage gravy and shared a side of hash browns. The Hella Fitzerald was AMAZING. I had just eaten at Hominy Grill in Charleston where I ordered a similar meal (fried chicken and biscuits and gravy) but while it was also very delicious, it wasn't nearly as yummy as Handsome Biscuit. I definitely want to try all the other biscuits the next time I visit. (Lance also ordered a sweet potato soda which sounds disgusting but was surprising delicious and light. )

Just got back from a long and wonderful trip. I visited my dear friend in Charleston then my dear man friend in Virginia Beach. This was the perfect Valentine's trip, surrounded by love and doing what I love… exploring, of course. I can't wait to get back on to the blogging saddle. But for now I'll leave you with this picture of Lance, as it seems people in the blogosphere are very interested in him. :D But why wouldn't they? Like me everyone loves a good love story, right? And that guy right there is mine.
