Sushi Gallery, Cerritos, CA

  Yup, sushi again! I’m a sushi lover in case you haven’t noticed. 🙂 People always ask me how I find these restaurants. I tell them it’s the same reason why anyone finds anything: either online or word of mouth. It makes it less “scary” when someone tells you “Oh come here for good sushi” …

Song Linh Restaurant, Garden Grove, CA

    I hear that Song Linh Restaurant makes pretty good banh xeo – translated into various terms: Vietnamese pancakes, crepes, or as you might like to call it, “Vietnamese tacos.” 😛 Banh xeo is a type of crispy crepe made of rice flour, water, stuffed with pieces of fatty pork, shrimp, green onions, and …

Shin-Sen-Gumi Hakata Ramen, Fountain Valley, CA

    This is the second time I’ve eaten here at Shin-Sen-Gumi in years, and I don’t remember it being very good the first time. But since this is the closest ramen place to me while in the area, and my friends seem to recommend it, I decided to give it another chance. It’s slightly better …

Quan Hop Restaurant, Westminster, CA

  I’ve passed by Quan Hop so many times eating at other places in the same plaza but never went in until now – only to find out it has the same owner as Quan Hy. D’oh. I had a feeling about the ownership because the menu resembles much of Quan Hy’s – the style, …

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 …

Thai Specialty, Brea, CA

  Eating at Thai Specialty, one word comes to mind: simple. It is a small restaurant with very simple decoration and simple entree dishes. Although the food is average, the service is quick and friendly. We ordered a ton of food, however. Tom yum hot pot consisted of a lot of mushrooms and maybe five …

Tampopo Restaurant, Buena Park, CA

  Tampopo Restaurant is a small mom and pops Japanese ramen eatery run by non-Japanese owners. It’s often said that ramen isn’t good if it’s not made by Japanese chefs. To me, it doesn’t really matter. But apparently, this restaurant kind of fits the stereotype. 😛 I love ramen, and I’m pretty sure I’m able …

  How excited am I that Lady Gaga is appearing on The Simpsons season finale airing this Sunday! Talk about going out with a bang. You’ll get to see little genius Lisa Simpson make Gaga cry like a little girl. And cry tiny diamond tears? Classic! Who else other than Homer would think about eating …

Draw Something, Better Now That It’s on iPad

  The Draw Something iPhone app has been keeping me occupied for some time now, and although doodling on my iPhone was fun, I thought I’d try it out on the new iPad 3 with the whole retina display thing and all. And it’s so much fun! Sure, I’m no artist, but I can draw …

Starbucks Mocha Cookie Crumble Frappuccino

  Starbucks has a way to lure me back after having lost me to Coffee Bean. 😀 They have this new Mocha Cookie Crumble Frappuccino drink that looks refreshingly good enough to get me to try it…twice. It’s basically coffee base mixed with mocha sauce, vanilla syrup, milk, frappuccino chips, blended with ice, topped with …
