Chicago: Garrett’s Popcorn
Chicago: Garrett’s Popcorn

When I asked Judith, my city tour guide, what was true chicago cuisine, her answer was “junk food.” Not surprising, since it is located in the midwest with the abundance of corn. And with all this corn, what can be more iconic to Chicago than Garrett’s? The famous chicago mix. Oprah loves it. And if […]

Chicago: Battle of the Pizzas
Chicago: Battle of the Pizzas

Since the beginning of time, New Yorkers have been making enemies. We pride ourselves at being the best for many things. We think we have the best baseball and football team, looking at New England with disgust. Then there is the delis, the bagels, the cupcakes, our building architectures, EVERYTHING. And ever since I took […]

Chicago!
Chicago!

The windy city. Oprah’s head quarters in her quest for world domination. Land of the stubborn people who refuse to give in to New York’s classic slice of pizza. I have been wanting to visit this city for the longest time. I’ve talked about it for a year. And finally I am here. For no […]

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 […]

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 […]
