Ding Xian 101 (pre set 9 course meal) – 86th floor @ Taipei 101

Yep. I’m in Taiwan! It’s been a few days and I’m still acclimating to the time change. It’s been more brutal than ever especially this visit as I’ve had to keep up with work as well. Taiwanese people are known to express themselves through food. Or sharing of food. Well, or treating for food. I… Read More Ding Xian 101 (pre set 9 course meal) – 86th floor @ Taipei 101

Din Tai Fung (+ rekindling ramblings)- Arcadia (Westfield Santa Anita mall)

Ok. So this blog is on a xiao long bao kick at the moment. I’ve been swamped at work, fighting a new cold, and having brain hiccups for the past two weeks. I was so grateful for the rain the other night. There’s something ┬ámagical about the beautiful sounding rain when you’re tucked under the… Read More Din Tai Fung (+ rekindling ramblings)- Arcadia (Westfield Santa Anita mall)

Paradise Dynasty (truffle, foie, cheese, szechuan, so many xiao long bao) – Taipei

Paradise Dynasty was a highlight for me when I visited Taiwan in September. I can’t believe it’s been almost three months since that trip. I look back at these photos and remember the food, company, and experience of that trip. Paradise Dynasty is a chain restaurant with locations around Asia. My mom had heard about… Read More Paradise Dynasty (truffle, foie, cheese, szechuan, so many xiao long bao) – Taipei

Din Tai Fung (1088 S Baldwin Ave) – Arcadia, CA

I’ve always wanted this blog to be about food and how it brings people together. My family still amazes me, even today, when they bring that to life. My mom was leaving for Taiwan and wanted to treat us to ‘anywhere’ we wanted to eat. The ‘anywhere’ just had to be in Los Angeles. Dang… Read More Din Tai Fung (1088 S Baldwin Ave) – Arcadia, CA

TASTY NOODLE HOUSE – SAN DIEGO, CA

Sis and I saw the sign for Tasty Noodle House some weeks ago when we were in Convoy for lunch. We knew Yu’s Garden had closed but had no idea what type of cuisine Tasty Noodle House served. We promised one another our first visit here would be together but I totally couldn’t wait so… Read More TASTY NOODLE HOUSE – SAN DIEGO, CA

Infini Tea (Taiwanese lunch specials) – San Diego, CA

Sis is the worst food critic ever. First, she doesn’t even write about it (be it yelp/zomato/etc). Second, she complains non stop about whatever dish that ‘sucked’. Third, she assumes, because I blog, I will share *her* sentiments on here without revealing her identity. I recently had a huge craving for Taiwanese food and searched… Read More Infini Tea (Taiwanese lunch specials) – San Diego, CA

Liang’s Kitchen (+ WTD & Chocolate rationing ramblings) – San Diego, CA

LIANG’S KITCHEN – SAN DIEGO, CA Sis, V and I all went to lunch the other day. Sis ALWAYS jones for Beef Noodle Soup (BNS). It’s probably the only thing she ever craves. Sis has a love/hate relationship with food b/c to her, eating is just a chore and it’s a lot of work. We… Read More Liang’s Kitchen (+ WTD & Chocolate rationing ramblings) – San Diego, CA

Yu’s Garden ( Chef takes lunch break during lunch? + my ballet flats) – San Diego, CA

Ohhh how I’ve been wanting to try this newly opened Taiwanese restaurant. I actually first heard about it from reader Ben. Kirbie and Kirk also did an early review on this Yu’s Garden as well. I was in the area late the other day and stopped by. I was alone, didn’t have any cash (this… Read More Yu’s Garden ( Chef takes lunch break during lunch? + my ballet flats) – San Diego, CA

Xiao Long Bao expedition (I’m in Taiwan! + family ramblings) – Taipei/Taichung/Hualien, Taiwan

The last few weeks have flown by hasn’t it? I’m not even sure how it’s even 9/10/2013 today. I feel like I’m in some sort of time warp b/c I was just here in Taiwan less than 3 months ago – and here I am today – in Taiwan – AGAIN. The weather here is… Read More Xiao Long Bao expedition (I’m in Taiwan! + family ramblings) – Taipei/Taichung/Hualien, Taiwan

Fullon Hotel (AYCE lunch buffet & Beautiful roof top pool/spa + Mom story) – Hualien, Taiwan

I can’t believe it’s been over a week since I’ve blogged. Totally not me as I’ve always been consistent. And I always checked out fellow blogger’s sites everyday or every night. But life got ‘busy’ I guess – I’ll explain that probably in the next post… So mom and I were obsessed with trying out… Read More Fullon Hotel (AYCE lunch buffet & Beautiful roof top pool/spa + Mom story) – Hualien, Taiwan
