Read all of this in either @Beyoncé or @violadavis ‘ voice: Never stop moving forward. Recognize your past. Acknowledge your present. Become your FUTURE || Working on becoming sometimes becomes taxing; every step forward means another step in acknowledging who you once were. I didn’t start smiling constantly until the last 7 months...well at least for real and that’s because I fought thru a lot, self, addiction, deaths, homelessness, depression and the list can go forever like so many of us...but I’m working on it...ALL OF IT. and that means sometimes saying when I was/am wrong so I do I reach out, I mend sprains and mold bridges, because at the end of the day BECOMING is just the 1st step.....BEING is the goal ✨💕🦄 #liveinyourtruth
|| The pan seared rockfish by @chefbonham || Tonight’s #dinnerwithchyno : Restaurateurs was absolutely amazing! I took on a new feat - introducing restaurant owners with one another to move to a more united @visitbmore || To be able to bring together @almacocinalatina & @wet_city over food, laughter and business is something that not only inspires me to continue this mission but also reminds me that our city is one of the most beautiful cities in our country ||
Why not celebrate the first day of spring at @nandosusa in @harboreast not only for its truly gorgeous decor ( Nando’s touts itself as the largest buyer of South Africa contemporary art in the world!) and its epic playlist but its food never disappoints (This is the Feta, Avo & Crispy Chickpeas Salad with added Peri-Peri Chicken) ....and don’t even get me started with the sauce! #zipkick @zipkick #nandosUSA oh and also I don’t usually do this but their MOD Tay and my server Shelly rocked and super packed lunch thanks ladies!
Don’t take life so serious....get in there and play with your food, how else would you make this epic Hot Chicken Snado out of the epic @chefbonham HC Platter 🔥 🔥 🔥 Taking #dinnerwithchyno up another tick to “Dinner With Chyno: Restaurateur Edition” Where I’ll get to introduce some of my favorite restaurateurs and chefs to one another in an epic tasting kind of way! Tonight I have the privilege of introducing @almacocinalatina ‘s amazing matriarch @ai_rei_rei to the epicness of my favorite dynamic duo of Josh and PJ over at @wet_city and the culinary greatness of @chefbonham || My biggest task this year is connecting our neighborhoods through laughter, food, and friendship.....our city deserves to know one another and out shine the people and/or motives that try to divide us! #MyBMORE @visitbmore @baltimoresun
|| Totally love the Honey Roasted from @ddgbaltimore || After watching @chefashishalfred on @thetodayshow this morning I’m more inspired than ever to continue my fight to persevere over hardships I’ve dealt with and some I even continue to deal with today, even this morning. When we meet people it seems more often than not we make a grocery list of assumptions, who they are, where they came from , and even why their dispositions and attitudes are the way they are....and with that typically the assumptions made are totally wrong. || Speak less - Learn Often - Be More #mybmore
Celebrating St Patrick’s Day the right way with CORNED BEEF of course from the famous @attmansdelicatessen shout out to @liketheteaeats for convincing me to make the trek- the line was long but well worth the wait. We got the the Stu Special, the Reuben, the Cloak and Dagger and a Jewish Hot Dog with the works!
I don’t know about you but all I ever really need is a super stuffed arepa ( this one is LA VACA MARIPOSA - Grilled Angus sirloin, chicken breast & chorizo, fried egg, avocado, nata, queso de año ) from @almacocinalatina and chill vibes s/o to @enriquelimardo & @ai_rei_rei for their continued epic ness and support! Another successful #dinnerwithchyno on the books!

Mmmmm one of my favorite delectably rich bites has to be roasted bone marrow. The one at @ddgbaltimore is just that and more, served atop a super tender beef ragu along side blueberry compote and a few bread points so you can slop up all that juicy goodness makes for the perfect dinner starter epic dish @chefashishalfred per the usual 💕✨💪🏽 pro tip ( that both me and @discovercharmcity agree on) finish the dish off using the bone as a luge and snag a shot of whiskey 🥃 to wash it all down!

Currently packing for our trip to Charleston + only throwing things in my suitcase that will allow for massive taco consumption 🤷🏻♀️. So it seemed appropriate to post a little throwback to one of my favorite tacos to date @167_raw . But also, tacos are always appropriate. Amirite? #cravingcurrently #charlestonsc #tbt

| Buffalo 🍄 Maitake | I honestly dont know how I hadn’t been to @dontknowtavern but I’m sure glad I did.....with Lent starting tomorrow a lot of people will be abstaining from meat which means dishes like this meaty buffalo wing style miatake mushroom with blue cheese crumbles are going to come in super clutch for those meat cravings for sure.

ME: Hi 👋🏽 my name is Chyno and I’m addicted to good pizza ( oh hey @midiciwhitemarsh 💕✨🍕) CROWD: Hiiiiiiiiiiiii Chyno 👋🏽 ..........so listen I officially started taking my food personality seriously at @joesquaredpizza when I had just launched my brand -> @theboywiththebluebeard ( I was doing social media pr for a few years at that time for about 11 clients in NYC s/o to my first NYC social media job -> @deanrussoart and in Baltimore before realizing that I was the best client of all) and with their help ended up on @travelchannel ‘s FOOD PARADISE produced by the man with the plan @producedreality || Speaking of that you’ll be seeing me soon on another episode with my friends from @snakehillgrill || Now onto @wet_city for “Dinner w/ Chyno” before heading to @vidatacobar for a special @southernprovisions x @jagerlifemddc takeover!
Tomorrow is my one of my absolute favorite holidays -> Mardi Gras 🎭 and the @mountvernonmarketplace puts on a yearly epic party with @rufusbmore and the band blairing out those epic New’Orleans tunes, @thelocaloyster dishes out non stop crawdads for all the folks, @baltimorecultured pouring up hurricanes and @myediblefavors has us covered with king cake.
When you are on the precipice of something amazing the world will attempt to unravel you...it will swear to you that everything you’re working for isn’t realistic and that your foundation isn’t solid...remind them that you made it this far because of your team and that being you and living in your truth is what makes you great! Find your team because let me just say I’ve found my flock...the group of people that knows my troubles....knows what the world has dished me and still helps hold me up when it gets too heavy....s/o to one of the most ace in any deck @bydvnlln who keeps my crazy ass grounded
Any trip to @visitwashingtondc isn’t complete without a visit to at least one of @chefjoseandres epic spots my favorite being -> @oyameldc for sure s/o to their epic Sous @manuelpe12 || Been on a tamal kick recently this is the Tamal De Camote: A sweet potato tamal filled with black beans, served with a guajillo chile salsa, Mexican crema, queso fresco and pumpkin seeds🚨 STORY TIME 🚨 For a portion of my army brat upbringing we were stationed on Fort Bliss in El Paso, Texas where visiting Mexico was a weekly occurrence for both the beautiful culture and amazing food. One of my favorite adventures involved snagging a dozen savory tamales wrapped in corn husk from an older street vendor named Rodrigo, who during the winter months made sweet tamales with raisins and cinnamon & would throw in a giant jug of horchata for total dessert epicness, and a couple bags of chile watermelon lollipops
HAPPY FRIGGIN BIRTHDAY TO ME! I’ve had my eye on this sandwich for months and it was everything I hoped it would be- The Bmore BRD from @eatbrd in @rhousebaltimore fried chicken, local pickles, BRD sauce and Old Bay. • • • • #bmorefoodie #baltimorefoodie #sandwichporn #baltimorefood #sandwichtime #baltimorerestaurants #discovercharmcity #eatmorebaltimore #charmcity #bmore #tasty #sandwichesofinstagram #freshfoods #lunchtime🍴 #joe_eats_sandwiches #thebaltimorefoodie #charmcityfoodies #baltimoreeats #dcfoodies #districtfoodies #dceats #districteats #sandwichlover

|| The Mezcalita || Fell in 💕 love with @bar_clavel a couple years ago....Its been the place for a first date, a break up, a stag night, family gathering, bday party and more for me...which is kinda synonymous with a place one might call home.

I don’t know how you lunch.....but at the @thelocaloyster in the @mountvernonmarketplace the options are limitless! Peep their Chesapeake Club: thats 3 peices of buttered Texas Toast, 5oz crab cake, signature shrimp salad, double bacon, lettuce, tomato with added house slaw and of course the hometown fav @utzsnacks may the people say “Dayummm!!”
Only a little over 60 days before soft shell crab 🦀 season and I can hardly wait! Idk if its a @visitmaryland thing.....or a @visitbmore thing....or just my love of @bmorebigsofty who literally is my fav fav (peep this beauty) but I’m biting at the bits...come on spring, whose with me 🙋🏽♂️🙋🏽♂️🙋🏽♂️Fresh lettuce 🥬 & tomato 🍅 , lightly battered soft shell 🦀 with @oldbay_seasoning , bacon 🥓 and avocado 🥑 for good measure all on perfectly toasted bread 🍞 whats better...nada, thats what, nada!
All hail one of the G.O.A.T. ( greatest of all time 😜 ) of @visitbmore burgers - @ddgbaltimore || You ever have a dish that reappears in your dreams over and over? Well mine is this epic 8 ounce perfectly cooked juicy dry aged rib eye with foie gras, chipotle mayo, cherry marmalade all on a grilled brioche for pure 🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥
|| Had a bast Supporting @avenuekitchenbar and @chefaudiel on #nationalmargaritaday with @jagerlifemddc & @brotheragave and chowing down on his epic authentic Mexican food -> The Blue Corn Short Rib Tamal with Corjita Cheese @tapatiohotsauce salsa & salsa roja 🚨 Hearing of a recent racist tirade lunged at one of the Mexican valet drivers for @avenuekitchenbar in Hampden broke my heart....so its only right that I take this moment to highlight the importance of community and community policing...people should not feel empowred to attack POC no matter where they are from and its up to us as a food community to stand behind our diversity and the differences that make us so wonderful....or else where would we get any of the epic ethnic food ✨💕 ✊🏼✊🏽✊🏿✊🏾
