[Las Vegas] Noodle Asia

Last post from my June Vegas trip! S and I often stay at The Venetian hotel, since we can usually get a pretty good deal for rooms through Priceline. One of the “casual” restaurants that we like in The Venetian is Noodle Asia - after all, a good bowl of beef noodle soup is a great [...]

Bawarchi Dosa

Don’t forget to enter my Instagram giveaway! Ends tonight at 11:59PM! S and I were both craving Indian food one of these past days, and we decided to check out a new place instead of just going to our usual, Punjabi Tandoor (although I’ve been wanting to try some new things there, too!). A friend recently [...]

[Las Vegas] Sushi Mon

I’ve had All-You-Can-Eat sushi in Las Vegas before and wasn’t super impressed – the fish was just okay, service was slow, and the rolls weren’t too good. However, at my friends’ urging, we visited Sushi Mon on this past trip to Vegas. There are two locations – Sahara and Silverado Ranch – and we visited the [...]

Iceskimo Revisit

I posted about Iceskimo, a summer snow-shaved ice pop-up shop, just a couple of weeks ago, and S and I have already made several revisits because we really loved the snow ice there!  We visited with a couple of friends so that we can try more flavors… haha. Yes, I will steal your food if it [...]

It's Boba Time

It’s Boba Time is a milk tea/drinks franchise shop that recently opened up on Convoy, replacing the old Yoshinoya spot. Due to S’s deep and undying love for all things milk tea, we had to go check it out. The interior was quite cute – one of the walls was a painted mural, and there [...]

Iceskimo (Grand Opening)

Iceskimo is a summer pop-up store in San Diego, serving snow-shaved ice! I was ultra-excited because I love snow-shaved ice, and my friend said that she visited during the soft opening and really liked it. I saw that there was a grand opening event two Saturdays ago, with free snow ice in the afternoon, so of course [...]

[Costa Mesa] Mochi Cream

Sorry for missing the Monday post this week! I’ve been quite busy lately, and with the recent heat wave, I haven’t done much cooking in the past couple of weeks. Today, I’m bringing you a post of my visit to Mochi Cream a while back. ‘ Mochi Cream, as you might tell from the name, [...]

May 212014

S and I have known about Hinotez, the sister restaurant to Yakyudori Yakitori, for quite some time but never took the time to check it out, mostly because we’ve heard that it isn’t as good. However, recently one of our friends wanted some late-night-ish (~10pm) Japanese food, and Yakyudori was really crowded and could not [...]

Szechuan Chef

Recently, a friend of ours had a birthday celebration/get-together – she wanted Sichuan food, and we decided to try out Szechuan Chef, a relatively recent (opened last summer) Sichuan cuisine addition to Convoy St. These Sichuan restaurants all have three-character Chinese names, and sometimes I get them mixed up… Szechuan Chef’s Chinese name is also [...]
