I know a restaurant is good when I only see natives eating there. I landed the most authentic Mexican restaurant ever and in TN! Again, I’m new to the Tri-Cities area from FL. I was raised in Miami, born in Texas, so I’ve had my fair share of Mexican restaurants. But this restaurant, “La Perla” has been hands-down the most authentic, delicious, and affordable I’ve ever seen. I do have to warn you it isn’t fancy but it’s worth a visit and luckily for you, the menu is in English, if anything just point to your selection and order! If I was in charge of the marketing aspect, I would have a WordPress site to start and add a bunch of pictures, have specials on Facebook and Twitter, and include lots of videos.
Here are a few pictures:

Great perks in relocating to TN from FL, I can visit other states such as NC, I really enjoyed eating at the Early Girl Eatery (Pumpkin-Ginger bread), visiting the Biltmore Estates, and Bert (at the Barn at Biltmore) view pics below:

I’m new to Eastern TN from FL. I want to visit everything that this area has to offer and blog about it. Please let me know if you would like me to feature your business on my blog, I have an added interest in the horse, pet, and agriculture industry but I’m open to eating more delicious meals at local restaurants in the Tri-Cities area such as in Kingsport, Johnson City, and Jonesborough (and surrounding areas).
The Olde Towne Pancake House, here is their address and reviews (Click Here) I love the Pumpkin Spice Pancakes and I enjoyed seeing “I Love Lucy” themed decor all over the restaurant, they also showed old reruns too!

Scratch Pizza (wood-fired pizza)
Yummy "Scratch" Pizza
Scratch Foodworks’ Pizza is best described as a delicious and unexpected surprise. They make the pizza based on a trust system where you decide if you want to be surprised with the toppings or “limited” trust where you cross out the options you don’t want included on your pizza. It was delicious! Click Here to see their menu
For those sweet-toothers here is your Ice-cream fix!
Mona Lisa's Gelato
Mona Lisa’s Gelato has a delicious variety of exquisite flavors. Their signature gelato, the Mona Lisa, had me at “Caramel”. It includes caramel, cinnamon, and Amaretto. They also have other sweets and fancy soups/breads. Click Here to visit their amazing menu
Don’t forget to contact me, to blog about your business. Thankfully, these hilly mountains and inclines can help me enjoy more meals and feel less guilty about eating it.
