Huevos Rancheros

Huevos Rancheros

I’m a savory breakfast person, for whatever reason I just can’t get behind the idea of scarfing down something sweet first thing in the morning. That’s probably why I tend to gravitate towards dishes like Eggs Benedict or Monte Cristo Sandwiches when I go out for Brunch. But it’s Huevos Rancheros that holds a special…

Kaleslaw

Kaleslaw

I’ve always been a firm believer that if there’s a dish I categorically don’t like, it’s because it’s been prepared wrong. That’s why I always give foods I don’t like a second, third, fourth…. try until I find a version that I do like. Such was the case with this Kaleslaw. I’ve never been a…

Fresh Strawberry Liqueur

Fresh Strawberry Liqueur

With strawberry season in full swing, I was passing by a fruit stand the other day when the intoxicating aroma of strawberries led me to a stack of strawberries which had just been marked down to ¥500 (about $4.20 USD) per case. The reason? They were all different sizes, a big no-no in quality conscious…

Arroz Amarillo

Arroz Amarillo

Arroz Amarillo or “yellow rice” is a playful and delicious Latin American dish that makes for a visually stunning side to dishes like Picadillo. Sadly, it often falls short on flavor, relying too heavily on instant mixes and flavor enhancers rather than the handful of basic ingredients it requires. Head over to PBS Food for…

Vegan Tonkotsu Ramen

Vegan Tonkotsu Ramen

Growing up, a steaming bowl of ramen was my panacea to mend a cold, the balm demanded to sooth my angst, and the pick-me-up needed after a rough day at school. Those perfect bowls of creamy porcine soup brimming with curly noodles were, for me, the quintessential comfort food. This is probably why I took…

Vegan “Egg” Salad

Vegan “Egg” Salad

Whether you follow a plant-based diet or not, it’s hard to deny the convenience of not having to hard boil and peel eggs to make an egg salad sandwich. This rich “egg” salad made with tofu has most of the texture and all the flavor of the egg based original and comes together without having…

Those of you who have been reading this blog for long know that I don’t do many restaurant reviews. But it’s not everyday that I get a chance to eat at the Best Restaurant In The World, with food prepared at the hands of one of the most influential people in the world. So here’s…

Mario Kart is REAL
The House in Hong Kong

The House in Hong Kong

Walking through the doors of The Upper House, life slows down a beat or two. The minuscule lobby is more like a decompression chamber to shed a little energy before taking a serene ride up an escalator designed to mimic a row of torrii gates. There is no front desk in the traditional sense because…

Dueling Wontons

Dueling Wontons

When I mentioned on Twitter that I’d be heading to Hong Kong for a few days, the food recommendations came pouring in. Everyone had a favorite, but the one place I consistently heard as a must-go spot was Mak’s Noodle for their Wonton Noodles. It’s a third generation Hong Kong institution and while the one…
