Cooking: Pizza

Cooking
December 15, 2018 We got a new smart oven so I’ve been jumping into cooking up some homemade pizzas! Fast-food pizza is probably cheaper depending on the toppings but homemade pizza can be really tasty and at least you know what ingredients are going into your pizza. For this first pizza I made a thin crust dough, brushed […] {More...}

Cooking: Oyakodon

Makes about 4 servings: 4 tbsp soy sauce 2 tbsp sake 2 tbsp mirin 2 tbsp brown sugar 1 onion sliced into thin wedges 1 lb chicken thigh 8 eggs 1 bunch of green […] {More...}

Cooking: Meat Loaf

Cooking
June 18, 2017 I love this meat loaf recipe because the tangy sauce pairs really well with the beef, and the meat loaf texture is not like the soggy, bland ones I’ve been used to in the past. Highly requested once people try it. I’ve included the recipe below with a few adjustments. Original recipe is from here. […] {More...}

Meet Fresh

Dessert, Taiwanese
July 20, 2016 Kimchi: We’ve been wanting to go for a while ever since it opened, but the lines were INSANE, so we waited a bit. Kimchi: We got the Cold Meet Fresh Signature. It’s super duper refreshing! The herbal grass jelly is my favorite, and tastes so good with the herbal shaved ice (legitimately looks like brown […] {More...}

Eqeko

Peruvian
July 5, 2016 Kimchi: We were food and bar hopping on a Friday night, so we didn’t have much room left in our stomachs when we hit up Eqeko, but from the two dishes we ordered, I could tell this place knows how to serve fancy and tasty Peruvian food! We would definitely come here again and make […] {More...}

Tani

Japanese, Korean
April 6, 2016 SAVORY FOOD: Their fried chicken is top notch and is this restaurant’s shining specialty. A great Korean bar to eat savory dishes and grab some drinks. All of their savory dishes are pretty large and are much better for sharing family style with your table. The chicken is juicy with extremely crispy breading – perfect. […] {More...}

Hakata Ikkousha

Japanese
January 9, 2016 Kimchi: I’ve visited Hakata twice now and both visits have been delightful! Kimchi: The karaage ($7) is perfect! The outside is super crispy and the inside for the most part is super juicy. Kimchi: I’ve had the mentaiko ramen, which has a salty, seafood taste to it, and slightly spicy. I think it’s a nice […] {More...}

DonerG

Turkish
July 16, 2015 We were very kindly invited to try DonerG for a media tasting! We haven’t had the opportunity to try them out before, and we’ve never really had turkish food, so we were pretty excited! Our host was the sweetest and kept us company during our media tasting. Thank you, DonerG, for having us as your […] {More...}

Temakira

Sushi
July 5, 2015 Pretty good for a fast food type place! For now I would actually give this place 3.5 stars but assuming I will get the chance to try more of their food and enjoy it, my rating would topple over into 4 stars. It’s very clean inside and the decor is rather pleasing. The handrolls are […] {More...}

Samurai Burrito

Sushi
January 27, 2015 Kimchi: I have gone here enough times to finally say I really dig this place. It looks pretty humble when you first walk in, but the food is good. I’m a fan of “build your own” places and I usually can’t say no so sushi. The combination of the seaweed, sushi rice, raw fish, crunchy […] {More...}
