Pittsburgh Strong

First post of the new year! And I thought I would start the year with the city I have spent the most time in for the past few years. Pittsburgh. City of Bridges. Steel City.


I think when most people hear “Pittsburgh” they just think “city”, but it’s not quite like New York City, Philadelphia, Los Angeles, Chicago, etc. Pittsburgh is a really large area that is made up of many different regions and there isn’t really one “hot spot” to visit. In most cities, downtown is where everything is, the place you should visit. However, with Pittsburgh, sure there are a couple good restaurants and bars downtown, but there are even more “city” life in other parts such as South Side, Oakland, Strip District, Lawrenceville, and more.


Ever since first year of university, I loved to explore Pittsburgh, and not just stay in my university’s bubble. I think sometimes Pittsburgh gets a bad rep because it’s not a crazy city and the weather isn’t the greatest (lots of rain), and even though I don’t wanna keep living here after graduation, it’s not as bad as some people say it is. There’s enough to do and good food!








As for places to eat/drink, there are too many and it is hard to narrow down so take this list with a grain of salt:

  • Pamela’s: there are multiple locations; really popular in Pittsburgh for brunch
  • StackdBRGRBurgatory are all delicious burger restaurants, highly recommend! & they all serve alcoholic drinks too~
  • Millies, Dave & Andy’s are really good ice cream places and for me, ice cream is a year round thing so it’s always a great idea.



AOTD: Try making that one food dish, you’ve been wanting to try! And if you don’t have one, then find something to cook or bake and test out your cooking/baking skills~
