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

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...}

Churned Creamery

July 6, 2016 Martini: There’s been so many ice cream places popping up it’s hard to keep track of them all. Churned Creamery’s main gimmick is that the ice cream is continuously churning giving it a nice creamy texture. I would say it’s the love child of traditional fresh made ice cream and nitrogen-based ice cream in terms […] {More...}

Pig Pen Delicacy

July 6, 2016 Martini: The pork belly sliders are small! Let’s just get that off the bat right now. It won’t fill you up in that sense but at least it tasted good. The pork belly meat is nice and crispy just but I wished they added more sauce. As for the pulled pork sandwich, I thought it […] {More...}

The Pizza Press

July 5, 2016   Martini: What a delightful surprise this place was. We came here to redeem their free bread sticks not realizing how amazing their pizza was. Their set up is pretty identical to places like Pieology, Pizza Rev and Blaze Pizza with the whole “make your own pizza” deal. We went with their “pink sauce” which is a […] {More...}

Phil’s BBQ

July 5, 2016 Martini: Eating the tri-tip sandwich is a lot work! It was messy and I got my hands dirty. But I was rewarded with one of the best tri-tip sandwiches I’ve ever had. The amount of sauce was just right and tender meat just melts in your mouth. Yummy bbq goodness! Martini: The real showstopper here […] {More...}


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...}


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

January 9, 2016 Kimchi: We’ve visited Hakata twice now and both visits have been delightful! Martini: This is definitely my go-to ramen place now. Kimchi: The karaage ($7)  is perfect! The outside is super crispy and the inside for the most part is super juicy. Martini: If you’re starving and need that little side-dish to compliment your meal, […] {More...}
