Yummy Bossam Lunch at Samsoonie Noodle & Rice

I love bossam. If I visit a Korean restaurant and I see it on the menu, there is a 90% chance that I will order it. Something about the tender and spiced pork belly slices, wrapped in kimchi, herbs and lettuce just makes my mouth water. I met up with a friend recently, and in…

No-fuss dinner at Tokyo Joe Sushi

Tokyo Joe Sushi is a small, no-fuss, pay at the counter sushi spot in central Richmond. They are great for takeout sushi or a quick lunch/dinner. I like to go there for their sashimi and special sushi rolls. Tokyo Joe also offer other items like teriyakis, udons and others. It’s not really a place for…

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…

You’re Worth Waiting for, Bad Saint

One restaurant that I have always wanted to visit was Bad Saint. Bad Saint, a Filipino restaurant located in the Columbia Heights area of DC, was named #2 best new restaurant in America by Bon Appetit for 2016. Ever since, I have been dyyyyiinnngg to go. However, the problem was the logistics. Bad Saint is a very…

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!

Seafood Heaven at Neptune Oyster

If you do a quick search of Boston’s food scene, you’ll notice that seafood is its own food group here. Among the many seafood restaurants in Boston, Neptune Oyster’s name comes up quite often. Neptune is the God of the Sea. After my dinner at Neptune Oysters, I’ll happily worship at the altar of Neptune, and return to…

Clams & Fried Chicken at Alden & Harlow

Alden & Harlow is a small, very cozy restaurant in Harvard Square that serves up modern American food. Everything on the menu is served tapas style, perfect for sampling and adventuring. Alden’s been praised and reviewed repeatedly by Boston Magazine, Eater, Bon Appetit and many others. The restaurant is quite dark, but with the soft…

LOBSTAAAHHH but no love for Luke’s Lobster

Since I’ve moved to DC, I’ve been wanting to try Luke’s Lobster. I tried their lobster roll, because it is what they are most famous for. Maybe it’s just me, or the shop I visited was having an off day, but…meh. Granted, that’s a very generous pile of fresh lobster meat on a warm brioche…

Laotian Lunch at Thip Khao

  After another satisfying trip back home to Vancouver filled with lots of dim sum, ice cream and sushi, my trifecta, I am back in DC. Back to reality. Recently, I finally got a bit of a breather so I went exploring again. This time, I picked Thip Khao, both for the food and the…

I Aburi love Green Leaf Sushi

As you know, my love for Thomas Haas is deep and true. However, when I come up for air from imbibing in my Thomas obsession, I noticed that Thomas is actually located close to a great sushi place that does fantastic and cheap aburi sushi!! Green Leaf Sushi is a small and quaint restaurant in Kerrisdale, by…

Have you Poke yet?

On my last quick trip back to Vancouver, I did not have time to visit one of the many Poke shops in town. I was quite remiss I did not get to join the hype. I remedied that. I chose the recently opened Poke Shop in Gastown, because I like the many options of proteins…
