Delicious Babies at Tasca el Pescador

On my last trip to San Juan, I visited a little market near Condado, San Juan called La Placita, which is in the Santurce neighborhood. La Placita is a farm market that is literally surrounded on all sides with restaurants. During the day La Placita is a market, at night, it’s fiesta time! A lot of…

Something New at Bella Gelateria

If you have been following Bella Gelateria’s instagram(like moi), you would have seen that Bella Gelateria has been making some of their gelatos with water buffalo milk.

An Earnest Love for Earnest Ice Cream

A few posts back, I said I will discuss my love for Earnest Ice Cream, my favorite ice cream parlor in Vancouver. Here it is. I keep my word, especially when it comes to food. To illustrate my love for Earnest: I had the matcha ice cream in the photo to the left on the…
