Underbelly

Until recently, the only ramen I ever had was Top Ramen. My grandpa would always make it for me when I was younger and I still continued to eat it throughout college (mostly because I was broke). The first time I had actual ramen that wasn’t Top Ramen was at Underbelly. A lot of people…

85C Bakery

More than just hype, this place is amazing! I remember random trips to Orange County and seeing a huge line for this place. I never got to try it because I didn’t feel like waiting that long for some pastries. 85C Bakery is now more accessible and now has 17 locations in Southern California and…

Great Maple

Why is it that most brunch places have a really long wait? I usually don’t like waiting more than 40 minutes for a table when I eat (unless planned way in advance and I have a snack), but this place is an exception! It’s one of those places where literally everything on the menu is…

Urth Caffe

  Urth Caffe is one spot I love to go to for a nice cup of coffee and I honestly think they have some of the best latte art around. Not only do they have a great selection of coffee and tea, but their food is amazing! Honestly, I’ve only had their pizzas and benedicts….

Straits

Straits is a Singapore restaurant at the very top floor of the Westfield San Francisco Centre mall in downtown San Francisco. It’s a very hip restaurant, including a sexy lounge with a full bar and DJ booth. This is the perfect place to have a date or to share a few drinks and appetizers with…

Papaya Salad- Lao and Thai Style

Papaya salad is one of my favorite foods. I can probably eat it everyday whether with lettuce, rice, or by itself. I know of two kinds, Lao and Thai style. The only difference is that Lao papaya salad uses fish sauce and Thai papaya salad doesn’t, which makes it a more fresh tasting salad. My…

Don’t be ignant.

Don’t be ignant. We all love bacon and I have to admit, I use to be a crazy bacon addict. I use to eat anything that had bacon with it, including desserts and even mochi lol. Well sadly, I kicked that habit and it’s for the good. Here’s a great article from foodbeast about bacon…

Cinnamon Tempura Gelato from RA Sushi

One of my favorite desserts is the cinnamon tempura gelato from RA Sushi. I always try to have a light meal and then devour this baby right here. It’s a lightly battered cinnamon gelato that’s flash fried and drizzled with a chocolate- raspberry glaze. My overall favorite dessert is creme brulee and just recently they’ve…

Hot n Sour Soup- PF Chang’s

There’s a bunch of great food at PF Chang’s. They have gluten free and vegetarian options which is a plus, but the one I’d like to talk about specifically is their hot n sour soup. Random, right? I was at the one in Emeryville in the Bay Area when the waiter specifically suggested this soup…

Banana Toffee Creme Pie from McKormick and Kuleto’s

My favorite pie is banana creme pie. In high school, Marie Callender’s would have these $6 pie sales and I would totally get the banana creme ones and I swear I would devour the whole thing by myself in a day. Another thing I love about desserts is when toffee is added to it. Add…
