La Boulange & Bouchon | San Francisco, CA

It’s almost Friday, woohoo! Today it’s all about the pastries. Croissants and macarons are two of my favorite things. We went to La Boulange for breakfast after passing by a few times. The croissant sandwiches are good, but this violet macaron I had was a bit off. The flavor was good but the crispy shell […] Read more…

Bread & Cocoa | San Francisco, CA

You better not screw up my breakfast San Francisco, because I love breakfast. After the last mediocre day of eats, we decided to check out the cafe close to our hotel since it had good reviews (we checked this time!) Luckily we were not disappointed. I had to order the black forest hot chocolate of […] Read more…

Japantown | San Francisco, CA

Sorry for the sporadic posting but here’s some more US travels! Shortly after my Chicago trip, I took a trip to San Fran. I’ve probably been to San Fran when I was 2 or 3? and certainly don’t remember it at all. I was psyched for Asian food since there’s a big Asian population and […] Read more…

Palm Court Afternoon Tea | Chicago, IL

Afternoon tea at Palm Court at the Drake Hotel was one of the fanciest afternoon teas I’ve had. According to my friend, both the Princess of Japan and the Queen have had tea there! There was a gorgeous centerpiece and live harp music which added to the elegant atmosphere. With 6 of us, the table […] Read more…

Joy Yee’s Noodles | Chicago, IL

I didn’t expect much from Chicago’s Chinatown but Joy Yee’s had some great drinks and eats. They had an extensive menu of Chinese, Japanese, Korean and Vietnamese food. It seemed like everything was in that menu! Grilled cuttlefish Eel over Japchae (Korean sweet potato noodles). Seafood baked rice. Korean Bulgogi Mango tea with mango pudding […] Read more…
