Genki Restaurant and Bakery, Garden Grove, CA

    Genki Restaurant and Bakery is stuffed in a deserted shopping plaza where its neighboring stores and cafes have closed for good and been put up for lease. I’m surprised my friend even found this place. I think the only reason he comes here is for the dirt cheap food. And I must agree. …

New Chua, Vietnamese Fermented Pork Squares

  I love eating this, any day of the week, any time of the year, even against my mother’s wishes because she says raw meat isn’t good for me. (Don’t tell her I eat a lot of sushi.) Anyway, this is called nem chua, or fermented pork, made mainly from minced pork thigh, sliced pigskin …

Vietnamese Banh Xoi Kep (Sweet Rice “Crepe”)

  This is not a taco. People will call anything a “taco” if it has anything that remotely looks like a taco or has a taco-like shell around it. Like that Vietnamese banh xeo (English literal translation: Vietnamese sizzling cake, ha.) That thing has been called “Vietnamese taco.” Couldn’t be more wrong. But I digress. …

Raspberry Macaroon Bar at Coffee Bean

  I went to get my usual hazelnut latte this morning at Coffee Bean, and needed something sweet to go with it. They didn’t have my favorite raspberry danish this time so I picked up this yummy looking raspberry macaroon bar instead. It’s probably a new item. It looks like a 7-layer cookie bar but …

What Gets You Through the Day?

  What do you snack on throughout the day? Your days are long, especially when you’re at work! I’m not a morning person, so it takes a lot of effort for me to get out of bed. Then, before jumping on the freeway, I have to stop for coffee. For me, it’s either my favorite …
