If you haven’t already, please do yourself a favor and find some foodie friends. It will change your life.

That’s how I ended up on Monday night at Ché in Cincinnati with my new food scientist friends, Ann and Luan. (So fun to say, right?) They know food and flavor. I know photography. We all love to eat, and it’s perfect.

Ann and Luan have started a wonderfully personable, accessible, and solid blog called Bitesized Duo. In just one outing, their perspective on food opened my eyes the same way my 2-week deep dive into Salt Fat Acid Heat did last Christmas.

I will absolutely leave the food and flavors up to Ann and Luan in their own post—they’re the experts by far—but the pictures alone tell you exactly what you’ll find at Ché. Here, it’s not just a place. It’s an experience.

Ready to go? Be sure to order the chef’s favorite empanadas— you won’t be disappointed. Ché is located at 1342 Walnut Street, Cincinnati, Ohio 45202.
