Great Wow – San Diego, CA

I’ve been on a blogging hiatus because food hasn’t been much on my mind. You won’t hear me ever say that again. Kidding aside, life has been catching up to me and I’ve been trying to get my un manicured hands to blog more. Great Wow restaurant opened some months ago. Sis didn’t want to… Read More Great Wow – 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

Dumpling Hut – San Diego, CA

Sis and I have had epic auto-correct fails. Case in point, I texted her that we’re at Dumping Hut for lunch. You’d think she’d find that amusing but no. She just takes it as another opportunity to laugh and shame me – all via text. I don’t think San Diego can ever, EVER, have enough… Read More Dumpling Hut – 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

Savory Buffet (AYCE Lunch Buffet $9.98) – San Diego, CA

SAVORY BUFFET My cheapo uncle (and I mean that in the most endearing way) introduced me to this place YEARS ago. He was the one in the family that we associated with cheap. Not frugal. But CHEAP. So when he told me about this, years ago, I shrugged and said ‘no thanks’. He finally got… Read More Savory Buffet (AYCE Lunch Buffet $9.98) – San Diego, CA

Flavor Garden ( Xian Bing / Soupy Meat Pie quest ) – Alhambra, CA

My drives to LA have been wretched lately. I’m not sure if I jinxed myself by writing all those times how easy, quick, and great those drives used to be. Dang it. I jinxed it.  The drives up lately have taken more than 3+ hours. Sigh. I was in LA earlier this week to pick… Read More Flavor Garden ( Xian Bing / Soupy Meat Pie quest ) – Alhambra, CA

Beijing Pie House ( Pan fried soupy meat pies ) – Monterey Park, CA

I drove up to LA last week for work and to see my mom before she left for Asia again. It was one of those chaotic-WTF days. I’m used to getting everything ready to go the evening before and then jumping in my car the next morning for the drive. But that morning my feet… Read More Beijing Pie House ( Pan fried soupy meat pies ) – Monterey Park, CA

Kang Kang Food Court ( Shengjian Bao + cheap Chinese food FAIL) – Alhambra, CA

As I mentioned in my last post, I had to come up to LA last minute to help family with a few things. It was a bit last minute and I tried to come up Saturday night but was too tired. So first thing early Sunday morning, I jumped in car with dogs and drove… Read More Kang Kang Food Court ( Shengjian Bao + cheap Chinese food FAIL) – Alhambra, CA

Beef Noodle Soup (2 Broth versions + funniest story in Hualien) – Hualien, Taiwan

It’s really early/late right now so forgive me if this post sounds totally discombobulated .  I’m so tired but this jet lag is kicking my butt.
