Celebrity Solstice Caribbean Cruise! :)

So last month, Hubs and I decided to refresh our Tahiti tans since they were slowly fading over winter. It had been fairly chilly out here so we hopped onto Costco Travel and booked ourselves onto a Celebrity Cruise to the Caribbeans. It was my first time cruising and I personally couldn’t wait to gorge […]

Momofuku Pork Belly Buns…. and Chicharones!

I was on a cooking binge… and made a bunch of stuff. I made two braised dishes for my Daring Kitchen Challenge (whoops! Still need to post about it!!!). I also attempted to make David Chang’s Momofuku Pork Belly Buns. It required me to work with pork belly… which was a new cut of meat […]

Daring Kitchen BRAISING: Preserved Mustard and Pork Belly – 梅菜扣肉, Red Braised Oxtails, Short Ribs Braised in Japanese Curry

I went a little bonkers this month with my Daring Kitchen challenge. We were told to Brave the Braise… and I pulled out all of my Le Creuset and went to town. I cooked three items… and Hubs and I had enough food to last us a week and a half! I made Preserved Mustard […]

Fish. Before and After.

Hubs and I both love seafood; probably a little bit too much. More often than not, we get cravings for a yummy whole steamed live fish. Granted it’s far from live when it’s served to us but there’s just something so delicious about plucking the meat off a freshly steamed fish that was just flopping […]

NYC Day 3-4! (Wall Street, Katz’s, Eileen Cheesecakes, Grand Central Station, Onya, Memphis, More Yakitori!)

It was our last full day in NYC. We stayed at the W Hotel and they offered an AWESOME car service! I had booked us an appointment for them to take us down to Wall Street. On the way there, the driver went by the WTC Pit. It was a sobering experience; to see the […]

NYC Day 2-3! (The Met, Hyo Dong Guk, Macy’s, Central Park, Sushi of Gari 46, Top of the Rock, Times Square)

We woke up at the wonderful hour of 12PM and made our way out of the hotel… Hopped on the subway and wandered off in search of The Met. It’s the first museum where I’ve been to where you pay what you think is fair for the admission fee. You get a little metal button […]

NYC 1.75-2! (Pommes Frites, PDT, Angel’s Share, Village Yokocho Yakitori)

I love fries. The Taiwanese genes in me were geared to love fried foods. I love my Yelp app as much as I love fries… So when I saw that there was a Belgian Fries joint pretty close to Crif Dogs, we walked over to kill some time before our reservation time at PDT. Pommes […]

NYC – Day 1-1.75! (Grimaldi’s Pizza, Brooklyn Bridge, Crif Dogs)

We had heard legen-DAIRY things about the NY style pizza; so per recommendations and reading Yelp reviews, we decided try Grimaldi’s. Up side: lots and lots of good recommendations. Down side: long long LOOOOOONG waits. I woke up at a decent time that morning and wandered over to 5th Avenue to shop since I had […]

NYC – Day 0.5-1! (Ippudo Ramen, Comedy Club, Times Square, Halal Chicken!)

After flying around and getting the bird’s eye view of NY, we headed off to Ippudo to have ramen. I had the best bowl of ramen I’ve ever tasted in my life. It was awesome. Not to mention the pork belly buns. Those were even more awesome. I think they’re awesome enough to convert any […]

NYC – Day 0-0.5! (Ess-A-Bagel, Helicopter Ride!)

Hubs and I have never been to NYC so given that it’s only a short flight away, we planned a quick trip out there for Memorial Day. Apologies to those who have already seen the photos on Facebook but those albums are not exactly conducive in letting me spout off my various thoughts. The flight […]
