Godfather Pork Bun
Godfather Pork Bun

I hate to say this, but I am a hypocrite. I listen to reviews too much, and sometimes give recommendations based on others. And today, I was brought down to my knees at Momofuku Milk Bar. There is nothing new about people raving about momofuku. And also nothing new about people thrashing it. After having […]

Food Tour in NYC
Food Tour in NYC

I love catching up with old friends. And relive all those wonderful moments we had together. Chloe is a good friend of mine from high school. We haven’t seen/talk to each other for about 3 years I would say. And then one day, she dropped me a facebook msg telling me she is heading to […]

Bourdain’s Les Halles
Bourdain’s Les Halles

There are times when the stars in the universe align and you know that you are at the right place at the right time, that you belong there, in the moment. This was how I felt when I walked into Brasserie Les Halles, the home base of Anthony Bourdain where he is the chef-at-large. This […]

Brunch at Paprika
Brunch at Paprika

You would think an Italian restaurant with such a simple and pretty name would serve amazing food. I guess not all the time. Jenny reviewed the dinner here and it looked pretty good, and I thought let’s give the brunch a try. After all, it’s 12 bucks a person, with a drink included. Sounds like […]

Paprika (By Jenny)
Paprika (By Jenny)

Hiiiii Derrick’s followers! My name is Jenny and I’m Derrick’s summer suitemate and fellow foodie. Regrettably, I don’t have the luxury of taking FCI courses or snagging ritzy reservations to places like Jean Georges, but I think I love food (and can write well enough) to match up to his food blogging 😀 I’ve baked […]

Five Points
Five Points

Every week, the food network plays porn for me to watch. Not the dirty kind. Food porn. Every time I see “The Best Thing I Ever Ate”, I salivate and wish I was at every single location. One of the places I have been dying to try is the Potato pizza at Five Points. Its […]

Two hours in Sunburnt Cow
Two hours in Sunburnt Cow

20 Dollars all you can eat and drink?!?! SAY WHAT?! How could I say no to that?! Which is why I found myself in this Aussie restaurant called Sunburnt Cow in the east village one evening with my friends Rachel, Byron, Nameeta and Glenn, ready to stuff our faces and get drunk on a weekday […]

Batali’s Otto
Batali’s Otto

When I think Italian, there is one name that can’t disappoint. Mario Batali. This man with his uggs is pure brilliant. I love his restaurant Lupa. Everything I have had there is just simple yet full of flavor. Pure brilliant. Otto is his supposed famous pizza restaurant. So when I wanted to meet a food […]

Dim Sum at Jin Fong
Dim Sum at Jin Fong

Dimsum. Or Asian Tapas. Thanks glenn for that comparison. Where to get good dimsum in New York? Honestly, I have no idea. I heard Jing Fong has the best dimsum so thats where i have been going to the past two years. But to be honest, it’s not all that great. But then again, my […]

Clinton’s Pancakes
Clinton’s Pancakes

Pancakes, oh pancakes. What a simple breakfast dish, with a spectrum of glorious goodness. So many ways of doing it, from out of the box to gourmet restaurant. So the question is: are you willing to fork out 15 bucks for pancakes at a restaurant, or are you satisfied with the 4 bucks mixed that […]
