Dish of The Month: Kimchee Quinoa Bowl

I don’t usually eat the same thing more than twice in a week unless I really like it; this dish I love! It is a combination of sour, sweet, crunchy and refreshing. This bowl is made with red quinoa, white cabbage, peppers, carrots, broccoli, daikon, scallions and cilantro topped with kimchee vinaigrette. You have the…

Best Fried Chicken in NYC

Yes, the BEST fried chicken in NYC can be found at BonChon. BonChon is a Korean restaurant. I think it may be an Korean fusion restaurant. Well anyway…I visited its Midtown location. The service was great, the portion sizes are great, the drinks were great, everything was-GREAT. I will say that when you order the…

Chef Dominique Does It Again!

I have yet to get my hands on the highly popular ‘Cronut’ but I WILL get my hands on Chef Dominique Ansel’s latest creation…Frozen S’mores. The remix of an American classic features a vanilla ice-cream core, coated with chocolate feuilletine then covered with marshmallow cream. That’s not all – an applewood-smoked willow stick is then…

Whenever You’re in…Philadelphia

Happy National Macaroon Day! Macaroon vs Macaron?

Lots of people tend to get confused by the two. I love macaroons! I’m not so much a fan of macarons…surprisingly. Here is a great article from YumSugar that explains the difference between the two. Which Macaroon do you like best?

Cronut Mania!!

Have you guys heard about Chef Dominique Ansel’s new cream-filled pastries? Apparently, they are all the wild in NYC. I’m talking about lines forming before the bakery opens wild. No…listings on Craiglists wild. Did I mention¬†that they’ve only been available for a week? The reason behind the madness: Cronuts are a cross between a doughnut…

Breakfast Enchiladas

Originally posted on normalcooking:
Are breakfast enchiladas a thing? ¬†Like a popular thing? ¬†Cuz I had never heard of such a thing! ¬†I’d hear of breakfast burritos, but never a breakfast enchilada. ¬†I wondered what the difference would even be. ¬†When I saw the recipe on pinterest, it piqued my interest. ¬†The ingredients looked basic…

Late night run to Pathmark supermarket turned into the greatest day of my life (not really). I finally got my hands on a bag of the special edition Lays chips including flavors such as Chicken & Waffles, Cheesy Garlic Bread, & Sriracha. I have been searching hi and low for these chips (any one of…

Birthday at Sofritos

Sofrito NY, a relatively new place in Midtown (NYC). I visited this place with a few friends to celebrate my BFF’s birthday. If you plan to visit this place after reading this review, ask to be waited by Jason. He was attentive, friendly, patient, funny, and adorable. Seriously he was. I appreciated his patience, judging…
