Birthday Feasting at Kissa Tanto

I never miss an opportunity to celebrate with food and for my recent birthday, I researched restaurants in the city for my celebration. I have always wanted to go to Kissa Tanto since it opened about a year ago. It’s a small restaurant in Chinatown, very intimate and has a sexy, jazz vibe. Kissa Tanto…

Lobster tail at Modern Pastry, a foodie landmark

Boston, as you may know, is a town known for both its Irish and Italian heritage. Boston’s Little Italy is in the North End, which is a beautiful neighborhood with narrow cobblestone streets, Italian restaurants, and many chic little shops, and it’s a tourist trap. Still, many gems are found in North End. Neptune Oysters…

The Truffle and Uni Life at Waypoint

A foodie goal I had for my trip to Boston was uni pasta. As much as I love uni, I have yet to eat uni pasta that does not skimp on the ingredient and is actually rich with the sea buttery flavor. I’ve searched high and low, and found a place that combines my love…

Foodie Heaven at Boston Eataly

Last time I went to New York, I visited the Eataly in the Flatiron district and promptly fell in love. When I visited Boston, I was so happy that there is an Eataly at Prudential Center I went twice! Here are some photos of the wonderful treasures in the marketplace and of course, food!

Dolcezza Gelato, Round 2 for Quality Control

Now that I am writing a food blog, I am extra aware of the importance of investigative journalism, thorough research and quality control. A while ago, I visited Dolcezza Gelato at CityCenter in DC. When I visited Bethesda Row, which is a very cute neighborhood that has lots of fun shops and restaurants, kind of like…

One Spicy Farmer’s Daughter at &pizza

I know, the picture kind of looks like a hot mess. But seriously, aren’t the best pizzas the messy ones? &pizza is a DC-based pizza chain. Their signature is the long, rectangular shape of their craft pizza that are made on order. I got the Farmer’s Daughter, which has spicy tomatoes, spinach, mozzarella, Italian sausage, egg,…

Tail Up Goat: Because Bon Appetit Said So

Recently, Bon Appetit announced the best 100 new restaurants in America and lo and behold, 3 restaurants in DC are on the list. Naturally, the fact that I am just minutes away from these gems was just absolute kryptonite to me. Adventure time! Tail Up Goat is a Carribbean-Mediterranean restaurant located in Adams Morgan. It…

Italian Fox Night at Osteria Savio Volpe

Osteria Savio Volpe(or Tavern of the Wise Fox) opened late last year in that little circle of restaurants near Kingsway and Fraser. I’ve been curious about the place, since I saw the adorable fox they had on their storefront, and they have handmade pasta. I was fortunate enough to visit on a beautiful Vancouver summer…

Brunch and things at Ask for Luigi

As you may have read, I am a devote believer that brunch is the best moment of the day. If I can go to the Church of Brunch every Sunday(or any other day for that matter), I will happily do so. I have tried dinner at Ask for Luigi before, and fell terribly in love…

Carbbing Up at Trattoria

Among the many amazing restaurants in Kitsilano is Trattoria. I am aware that there seems to be a love-hate relationship people have with Glowbal Group’s restaurants. I have not ate at all of their restaurants, but Trattoria I do like. There are many places in Vancouver that offer cheap pasta. I like Trattoria because of…
